This palace was a rich and magnificent residence of an aristocratic Venetian family, now it is an elegant and refined 3 stars Hotel, completely restored. The Hotel enjoys of an interesting position, preferred by the More intellectuals and artists, searching for quiet and inspiration. Inside the Hotel, at the entrance, there is a stoned staircase that goes from the lobby to the second floor, once called "piano nobile", where there are some rooms. The intelligent restoration has effected a correct and balanced compromise between aesthetical demands and the non-renounced functional requirements, essential an hotel that wants to keep step with the times. The rooms, in typical Venetian style,are furnished with elegance and good taste, with all comforts (private bathroom with bathtub, hairdryer, cable TV, direct dial telephone, mini-bar, air-conditioned, coffee and thea machine). Our clients can also enjoy of a lightly and roomy sitting-room on the second floor, a bar on the ground floor with a free internet point, and a nice and big veranda overlooking the garden, where the buffet breakfast is served in the morning.

First visit to Venice and had a recommendation to try this hotel. Stayed for 4 nights in a small family room that had enough space for the 3 of us. It is a simple with a good standard of facilities but very well cleaned and tidy. Great position in a very atmospheric area and a sh

Good Evening Can you advise on transport from Marco Polo Airport to your hotel. I would like to book in early February Thank you
I believe the hotel booked the water taxi for us. It is definitely the way to go! Quick, direct, comfortable, nice tour of grand canal on the way. Short walk to hotel door, up the canal from the local square where we were dropped off.

Is there guest parking at the hotel or nearby. Thank you.
No, this part of Venice is pedestrian only. However, it is near the Ca' Rezzonico (about a five minute walk) where you can easily get a water taxi.

Good Day, Could you provide me with walking directions from the Ca' Rezzonico stop to your hotel. Thanks, Dawn
"Rooms on the second floor are near to a very nice lounge."
"Ask for a spacious room! Or book a twin!"
"Select one which overlooks the canal."
"Book rooms in the 200 range, since they are adjacent to a lovely lounge area overlooking the canal."
"211 was our room. Very good."
