The LEFAIR Magazine team was lucky enough to stay at two of the three locations: DD724 and iQs. The DD724 35mqs suite is a good size for a couple traveling through Venice for a night or two. It’s easy to feel at home in the walk-up apartment style hotel rooms. We caught the morning sunrise through our, (okay, there is no better word to describe them), CHARMING windows with green shutters that open out to the streets of Venice. The room and view may want to sing to passersby below Disney Princess-style (we did). The iQs suite was quite a bit larger, at 75mqs. The lobby at iQs has a private walk-down to load into a gondola in the lagoon. This special feature is great for gliding around Venice. In the lobby, located in DD724 location are bright red arm-restless chairs, shadeless lamps and water-color style wallpaper. There is a butterfly motif throughout, with black and white paper butterflies dotting the walls and one resting on the lobby’s table next to a book about Italian artist, Fabrizio Plessi. It is in this lobby where you will also find breakfast served in the morning — traditional eggs, bacon, and cappuccino, along with an assortment of teas and fruits. It’s the decor that sets the breakfast apart — bright orange plates, cups and feathery napkin holders... On our final morning, we woke up in the iQs suite and one of the staff members, Tania, surprised our team with an assortment of fresh croissants.
An unlined book lies open for guests to leave their comments. Some are written in Italian and some in English.
