“Classy, Contemporary Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2012

Having reviewed so many hotels, we came across this one on Tripadvisor – if you like stunning original properties refurbished in contemporary décor, this is for you!

We loved our stay from start to finish. Thanks to all the great tips from previous reviews, we found the hotel very easily from the nearest Vaporetto stop, Sa Toma, with the assistance of a good street map (essential!) Thanks also to reviewers for the photo of Calle Corner, the narrow alleyway to the hotel – it was good to know what we were looking for and didn’t in anyway feel unsafe (or in the whole of Venice).

The hotel is beautiful – gorgeous décor, very well maintained and super stylish. Our luxury room (17) was fabulous – spacious and stunning! The whole hotel is very warm, even during a really cold spell, so we were pleased to have good sized windows we could leave open all night. The only downside to this is that our room overlooked a refuge collection point on the opposite side of the canal, so barge noises started fairly early in the morning, but this wasn’t invasive and it was interesting to have an insight into residents’ life. The lighting throughout the hotel is very subdued but we knew this and it does add to the charm. Bathroom lighting is very flattering (i.e. not bright!) but again not a problem.

The hotel was very quiet during our stay, (December is tranquil in Venice) which was perfect for us. We enjoyed a late night liqueur on the fabulous 2-seat balcony late at night, overlooking the stunning setting on the Grand Canal, wrapped up in coats and scarves – wonderful evening views!

Breakfast is a delight – all delivered straight to your table, with amazing fresh and ripe fruit. Coffee/teas are made to order and delivered with hams, cheeses, breads and far too enticing delicious freshly made pastries and croissants – a very relaxing experience although too tempting!

We loved our stay and were so pleased to have found this hotel – enjoy!

Room Tip: Luxury rooms are really spacious.

What an amazing hotel, everything about our weekend stay was magical. The hotel is incredibly stylish, just the right size so feels intimate, staff were attentive, room was stunning with a delightful view of the Grand Canal. If there is one thing to be recommended, is pay for the water taxi from the airport, the trip into the city was jaw dropping, plus you are taken straight to the hotel. Worth every penny. A weekend never to be forgotten in a truly spectacular and romantic city!

Room Tip: Face the Grand Canal.

This was a super nice hotel that certainly was a wonderful home base for an amazingly romantic trip to Venice. I have nothing bad to say about the hotel. The location was perfect for us. It was convenient to transportation, right on the Grand Canal and just far enough off the beaten path that we didn't have to deal with the hustle and bustle of the tourist districts. The styling of the rooms was perhaps a bit too modern for our tastes. Some of the flavor of Venice was lost in the attempt to create a distinctive property. Our room was very dark due to the dark decor and limited lighting. While it didn't bother me too much, the dimness of the bathroom is going to be a complant for the ladies who want to get dressed up for a night out. The staff was pleasant, but noticeably absent, which made it feel like you had the run of the place. The included breakfast was a favorite highlight of ours. Mind you this is not a heavy American style breakfast, but a European breakfast of freshly made pastry, fruit, meat and cheese. It was lovely. All in all, we would recommend the hotel, but probably will not repeat when we return.

Room Tip: The side canal rooms are a little quieter than those facing the Grand Canal, but certainly the Grand...

Finally i understood why others say its hard to find by foot. If not for the reviews, i would have hesitated to walk through some narrow maze to reach the hotel. Its really very strange. The only negative feedback i have is the room i had was too small and bathroom lighting a little dim. There is hardly any room to place 2 luggages comfortably. This was compensated by the hotel's fabulous breakfast. It was included in our package and oh wow, what a great way to start the day. All said, it' a nice charming place for couples who want something different from the usual grandeur hotels. If you want a grand hotel frontage, this is not for you.

What an amazing hotel, wonderful service, our suite was stunning, with the most comfortable bed ever. The interior design was breathtaking with real attention to detail. We had a room with view over the side canal which was lovely and quite.
The only one downside is that they do not have the air conditioning on at this time of the year and our room was very very hot at night.
Breakfast is excellent with great service.
The best thing about the hotel is there customer service, nothing was too much trouble.
We arrived in the dark so you have to take a boat taxi to find the hotel.
I really recommend the hotel, go and stay.

Lovely hotel with great design, all the modern amenities, nice breakfast service and bar. Every single person on staff was warm, engaging and so helpful to us and made our trip so much better!
The hotel was tucked in right on the Grande Canal and close to a water bus. I suggest calling ahead to plan how you will arrive to the hotel as it is a challenge to find on foot while very easy via water taxi.
No complaints other than wishing the wifi worked in our room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room upstairs. They all open to the bar which seems like it would let noise into the room...

Stayed 7th- 11th October for 30th wedding anniversary. We stayed in a suite, room1, which is at water level at the front of the hotel. Superb gothic styled boutique hotel on the grand canal. We arrived by 'water limosine', arranged via the hotel, from San Marco aiport, an impressive experience arriving on the water via the rialto bridge. The hotel and staff were excellent, towels changed twice a day, great breakfast. The bar a bit quiet but the table on the balcony overlooking the Canal is probably the most romantic place to have a drink I've been to.The back entrance to the hotel down a narrow path is quirky but once you've done it its not that hard to find again.As a real ale drinker Venice is a desert , but you don't go to Venice for the beer !!.....having said that we stumbled on a great bar Birra da Tutti Mondo Quasi on dei Ormesini Cannaregio area that had a great selection of bottled world beer and some Italien real ale from the Ducato brewery,
If you want a special place for your anniversary,honeymoon,birthday you won't be disappointed with Palazzo Barbarigo

Room Tip: Arrive by water taxi ,expensive but worth it
