Five nights of comfortable Venetian charm, supported by a most attentive and welcoming staff. Each morning, sipping espresso or cappuccino while watching the boats pass by on the canal was an unforgettable experience. But to have this with a beautifully appointed, ample and sumptuous breakfast buffet complete with eggs, delicious pastries, fruits, cheeses, meats and a variety of rolls and breads was a lavish way to start the day. The hotel was a short walk from the train station, right on the Grand Canal but located in a quiet courtyard. Perfect location! There was a complimentary boat ride from the doorstep of the hotel to a glassmaking demonstration, which we had not anticipated and thoroughly enjoyed. All in all, the hotel provided an exceptionally relaxing stay that exceeded our expectations and provided wonderful memories of our visit to ancient and remarkable Venice.
