A smart and comfortable establishment, whose best feature is its very central situation beside the Rialto Bridge, permanently thronged with visitors, roughly midway between the railway station and St. Mark's Square and so well-placed for most attractions.
Front rooms benefit from fine views of the Grand Canal and its busy water-traffic, as does the terrace of the separately-managed restaurant, a perfect spot for mixing pizza-eating with people-watching.
This location may however be a bit too lively for some. The five adjoining buildings create something of a maze-like interior, which has many steps and so is not suitable for the less mobile.
A mishmash of five rather jaded 17th-century terraced buildings in a variety of shades of pink and yellow, and ranging from 2- to 6-storeys. Various cafes and restaurants occupy the ground floor, a couple with pavement terraces.
Property type: Hotel
Built Year: 1600s
The attractive and reasonably spacious reception has light wood panelling and Chesterfield sofas, and is made more attractive by display cases and intricate wall lamps.
The pleasant breakfast room features mirrored walls, and a corridor leads to a separately-run bar and restaurant that has a terrace overlooking the Grand Canal.
A small rooftop terrace (on the 2-floor building) has fine views over the Grand Canal and of the Rialto Bridge, while a small rear ground-floor terrace has a couple of tables.
Area Type: In a prime location overlooking the Grand Canal beside the phenomenally busy bridge of the same name, very central to the whole city. Vaporetto, water taxi and gondola stops are outside and tourist shops and all manner of bars and eateries surround.
