Location: very good, near San Marco ant canal. But the best is locals
living around. Especially in the evening you can met them with dogs
eating ice cram and chatting around. The piazza infront of the hotel is
a live all day. Please dont go to the bar in the piazza - they have very
bad food and cheatting tourists! It is a trap! I was booked a room with
a view to piazza, but got only a corner of it. Ofcourse I asked for a
full view, and in the end of the stay (last night of the three) I god
the full view. Was happy about it.
Rooms: some of the roomns bathrooms are not very new and looks not
clean. Some rooms has new bathrooms and clean. Rooms are perfect, except
fkae wood flooring does not give luxury feeleing, when you have 5
hundred years old wooden beams above your head, and quitte good quality
rococo furnitures (golden guilded and hand crafted (?) and painted).
Breakfast: the weakest part of all. We asked capuchino for a breakfast
and thay were able to offer only americano... Well, in Italy americano?
Also they do not serve hot breakfast, so no omplet, scrable, just boiled
cold eggs. Well, if you are lucky, you might get warm croissant and
bread, so wake up early! Tea also was very poor (Lipton). But when you
are sitting in a muesum class hall, filled with rococo stucco works,
paintings, murano chandalliers and looking trhough the piano and Gothic
windows to the piazza and happully running school childrens and senior
local senoras sitting on the bench... You forget the food and the the
atmospheare you bserving become your food. Just I would like to recomend
for the stuff improve brakfast and to be more italians (venetians). And
well, the district where is a hotel located is a born place of vivaldi -
the greatest venetian composer of all the time. He was born just a
hundred meater form the place you are staying and museum is near by.
When I was in the hall, surrounded of rococo interior I almost heard
vivaldi's strings around me. Why not play Vivaldi during the
breakfast and very calmly in the evening? That would be amaizing and
breathaking experiance for everybody! And the lat recomendation: put
some french flowers and the piano, so many murano glass vases in the
hall and all of them were empty. Rezume: no amerikcano, hot breakfast,
fresh flowers in murano vases, music and some fragrant candles in the
hall, some bathrooms need renovation.
