It was very classical and opulent with expensive drapes and carpet everywhere, our room was like a temple, massive bed, bathroom, and beautiful paintings and ornaments everywhere, definitely 4 1/2 stars or better. The Grand Canal was right at the front door, and even better the city bus boat had a jetty right next door so it was super easy to ...
