I agree with all of the positive comments about e hotel itself, but, you cannot easily get to it by car/taxi. The front is blocked by construction, and it's a maze of driving to get to the back door, which is not marked by a hotel sign. There are no great directions on the official website or trip advisor. I've mentioned yt to several happy employees, but they just acknowledge it. The extra driving cost me another ten euros to a less than smiling taxi driver. The construction will be going on through 2013.
But, I have a nice harbor view, a balcony looking at the Basilica across the harbor ( if you are standing you can see over the thick concrete bannister, and see the boats), and a big bed facing the water, with feather pillows, and a feather top bed!
