We really enjoyed the location. It's far from St. Mark's square, but to us this was a good thing. We really enjoyed walking down to St. Mark's Square. One day we also took the water taxi which was a great experience as we got to see the entire Grand Canal. Part of the Venice experience, for us at least, is to walk the narrow backstreets where you will find beautiful courtyards and great restaurants. The room was very clean and comfortable. The shower in particular was a treat, large walk in with three different water feeds and plenty of room so you weren't continuously banging elbows on the sides. The staff was amazing! They were so considerate and helpful. They even made us a breakfast basket the morning of our departure since we had to leave the hotel at 5 AM. Everything was beyond our expectations. We highly recommend the hotel.
