Gritti Palace Venice, Italy

“Former 15th Century Doge's palace turned beautiful hotel for all. Classic styled rooms with views to die for and marble bathrooms. Tradition and elegance meet at the fine dining restaurant, with seating over the main canal. A romantic hotel with great location. ”

“Of the three great hotels in Venice – the Danieli, the Cipriani and the Gritti – this is our favourite, and the one which most closely reflects the incomparable beauty of Venice. Of the eight exquisite Canal View suites, our favourite is the Hemingway, in restful shades of pale green. Service is immaculate and the atmosphere patrician, yet friendly. And, as Somerset Maugham pointed out, there are few greater pleasures than taking a drink on the terrace at sunset, the Salute opposite bathed in lovely colour.”

They say

“Open the gold-rimmed doors of the Hotel Gritti Palace and experience Venetian romance sixteenth century style. Situated on the Grand Canal in Venice with incomparable views, the Hotel Gritti Palace was built in 1525 as the residence of Andrea Gritti, the Doge of Venice and is just a short walk from Venice's elite shopping district and principal attractions. With an ornately hand painted grand piano, intricately woven rugs, marble tiles, and finely painted gold-trimmed ceilings, the Hotel Gritti Palace preserves within its walls stories of illustrious visitors and royal families.”
