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

Hotel Review

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.
