Nice place to stay
Recently I stayed here, at the Ai Mori D Oriente Hotel, it was brilliant. Top tip no.2 for any prospective visitors is, stay in Canareggio if you can. It's the area that the locals live in; only 10 minutes from the Rialto bridge but really quiet. Mind you, you do have to put up with the Venice problem - our room window opened onto a brick wall. Still with a four poster and velvet drapes, did we care?
