OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The wide expanse of the promenade in front of this hotel overlooking the Giudecca canal makes a change from the narrow streets of the touristy parts of Venice. Enjoy a stroll along the canal or head north to the Guggenheim Museum and the arty Dorsoduro quarter with its galleries and artisan shops. Two vaporetto stops Zattere and San Basilio are within a five-minute walk from the hotel and you can walk to St Mark's square.

By plane: direct flights to Venice from London take 2 hours. Take an airport boat (1 hour 30 mins) to reach the hotel, or a water taxi. Book flights to Venice.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The ground floor of the palazzo is given over to an open reception area and a large, airy bar and restaurant with marble tables that always seem to have young, beautiful people huddled around them. Large Palladian windows flood the space with light. The speakeasy cocktail club is darker with velvet stools and dusty pink walls.

THE FACILITIES

There's a young hardworking team here (the chef is only in his mid-20s) who bring enthusiasm to their interactions. The tranquil garden at the back of the hotel runs down to a private mooring, from which you can depart in a water taxi or take a canal tour arranged by the hotel.
