I booked the hotel purely from the great reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. It was a surprise 50th Birthday present for my partner and our first time in Venice. I organised a shared water taxi direct from the airport ( £25 each) and there was plenty of space with 4 other couples. We were dropped off at the pier closest to our hotel and it was a challenge to locate the hotel, but we managed it eventually ( we were later advised that the taxi diver should ideally escort us to the hotel door direct ). The hotel is charming and full of character and as there had been a cancellation we were offered a room with balcony overlooking a picturesque canal way.Although small, the room was adequate and tastefully decorated.The singing Gondoliers travelled up and down the canal frequently and it was such a happy atmosphere. A nice touch was the hot drinks and snacks facilities on the first floor where you could help yourself at any time.
Breakfast was pleasant and there was plenty of choice and although the breakfast room was small it was still enjoyable and one morning we ate on the small jetty by the canal which was a treat.
Now on to the Happy Hospitality ! Mrs Anna and Massimo are a credit to the establishment and although neither are the owners , they genuinely aim to guarantee a wonderful break. On my partners Birthday, Massimo secretly organised a private Gondola which picked us up direct from the hotel jetty ( a little bit pricey, I thought, at 110 euro )and gave us a bottle of champagne 'on the house' to accompany us ! A lovely touch by the hotel and the trip was worth every euro !
Massimo also organised a free trip to the island of Murano where we had a tour of the glass factory, another lovely day out!
I would definitely recommend this hotel to all who travel to Venice and I hope to return one day.Big thank you Mrs Anna and Massimo :-)
