Our group stayed here in October 2012. What a lovely hotel, situated on a small island, not far from the main Venice island. This hotel and island are far from the noise and tourist congestion; the hotel and island are so very quiet. There is a lovely park, where one can sit on a bench and watch the boat traffic in the lagoon. With a zoom lens, you can get great pictures of Venice proper. The sunsets are amazing. The hotel is very clean and modern, as is the room. My room was extremely small, like a closet, with a window down on the floor, strange. This is considered 'single' accommodation. I enjoyed strolling the lanes, talking to locals, and an artist who was transporting his painting from a church to his studio. There isn't shopping per se on this island, but there are good, local cafes/restaurants. Nice to watch the kids play soccer in the park, after school. Excellent water-taxi service. The hotel is only a 3 minute walk to the lagoon, water-taxi, etc. If you want a peaceful, relaxing place to stay, after you have been part of the mob-crowd in Venice, this is it!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our romantic boutique hotel owes its secluded ambiance to the former convent in which it is housed and of which it still retains much of the original structure: the high walls and the imposing façade conceal unexpected gems such as the impressive spiral staircase and the amazing garden furnished with comfortable chaise-lounges. Venice, with its historic center and beautiful architecture, can be reached with a pleasant stroll along Riva degli Schiavoni, or in just a few minutes by waterbus. ... more less
