OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Wedged between the lagoon and a canal, this waterside property is not difficult to get to. Jump on a Vaporetto from Fondamente Nove in Venice and you can get to Murano in under ten minutes. The hotel is a short walk from any of the stops. Walk in any direction from the hotel and you will find pretty shops selling Murano glass in all its guises.

By plane: direct flights to Venice from London take 2 hours. Take an airport boat (30 minutes) to reach the hotel, or a water taxi. Book flights to Venice.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

This industrial-style hotel in a former glass-making factory is completely different to most Venetian hotels. Instead of antiques and chandeliers, there are modern Murano lamps, bright-coloured velvet furniture, bare brickwork and polished concrete floors. Floor-to-ceiling windows are framed by turquoise curtains and vaulted wooden ceilings are lined with the exposed pipes of the sprinkler system.

THE FACILITIES

From the enthusiastic staff at the front desk welcoming you to the hotel, to the excellent English of the restaurant manager who will describe every dish, you will be well looked after at this four-star hotel. The spa has a sauna, steam and experience shower and a small menu of treatments.
