It was the 1st night of our honeymoon and we arrived on an overnight sleeper train from Paris into Venice train station. On a wet, windy, and cold day (they don't tell you about this kind of weather in the glossy travel brochures !) we took the ferry to the door-step of the Ca Maria Adele. We were hours early for check-in and cold and wet. But after a brief welcome into the hotel, we were told to leave our bags in reception and move around to the decadently furnished lounge where we ordered freshly-squeezed OJs (best OJ I've had in a long while) and filtered coffees to warm us up.
By the time we had finished the complementary drinks our room was ready. The room was well-furnished, clean, with an impressive bath and a dizzy array of complementary toiletries, and most importantly of all it was snug. And throughout our stay this is in essence what the hotel was about - snugness. Everything was frilly, or fluffy, or warm, or scented, or tactile, or visually stimulating, or all of these put together. And if you put all these snug things together in the hotel it made us feel like we were back in our own home wrapped up in a warm duvet on the sofa on a cold winter's night whilst watching a movie and drinking a glass of wine. No wonder it was voted winner of the World Luxury Hotels in 2012 and the Most Romantic Hotel in Europe 2013.
And I know it is a phrase used too often but I use it here as quite literally 'nothing was too much trouble for them' from restaurants, gondola rides, more drinks, attractions off the beaten track, the state of Venice, to the future of the Euro (joke,,, no, not the Euro, but the fact we discussed it !).
After our 3 weeks in Italy we discussed our best hotel out of the 8 we stayed in and this one came out the overall winner. Its location, hospitality, rooms, bathrooms, and breakfast are top notch.
