You cannot beat this hotel's location - right on Grand Canal, opposite the church of Salute. It's exactly like the Venice you've seen in films or read about in books.

Take the water taxi to the jetty or the vaporetto to Santa Maria del Giglio - 3 minutes' walk away.

By plane: London to Venice takes 2 hours, after which, an airport boat takes 1 hour 20 minutes to St Mark's Square and it's a 10-minute walk to the hotel. Book flights to Venice.

The décor nods to this hotel's grand palazzo past - with Veneziano floors, Murano glass chandeliers and antique furniture. This is a very luxurious hotel and the moment you walk in, you'll feel like royalty.


Room service is available 24 hours a day, as kettles and coffee machines aren't allowed in rooms. The service is attentive and discreet, exactly as you'd expect from a grand hotel. The concierge is on hand to give restaurant recommendations.
