A short stroll from St. Mark’s Square, in one of the most evocative locations in Venice. The Hotel rises from the heart of the city on the lagoon, and appears overlooking the magical 'Bacino di San Marco' (the lagoon area in front of St. Mark's Square).
Just along the waterfront from St Mark's Square, where the Grand Canal meets the Lagoon, let your gondola glide to the landing stage of this wonderful Hotel. On the site of an orphanage church where Vivaldi once composed and performed, stands this beautiful, baroque hotel replete with gilded chandeliers, clocks, mirrors and bronze cherubs. A friendly, family-run hotel, it is like a museum of rare artifacts, boasting an eclectic collection of musical instruments, fans, corkscrews and Italy's largest collection of crucifixes.
It is possible to use different areas of the hotel for a memorable wedding reception in Venice. During Spring and Summer the Citrus Garden becomes the perfect location for events with 60 people. The magnificent backdrop adds to special events a touch of magic, in the shadow of the white gazebo or surrounded by scented jasmines around the fountain or the 16th century well. In case the couple prefers to stay indoors the event can take place in one of the 3 halls: Salone degli specchi that is perfect for 40 people, Salone Vivaldi for 50 and Saletta Met for 25.
Delicious meals are prepared at the 1 Michelin starred restaurant that offers a Contemporary concept cuisine that amazes even the most discerning palates. A personalised menu and close attention to detail guarantee the success of top level occasions.
Live music in the “Salone degli specchi” with piano or piano & sax or other instruments. Sometimes they have a live performance of a singer. This is included in the cost of the reception. Dancing not allowed.
Total of 67 rooms and suites, all of great charm, character and atmosphere. Rating 4* Hotel.
Offering a magnificent outlook over the lagoon towards the island of San Giorgio, or a picturesque view over the rooftops of the city, over the lush greenery of the hotel's internal courtyard garden, or over the Pietà calle or canal (named after the famous Vivaldi church located next to the hotel), each room is extraordinary in its own way, and distinguished by the care that has been lavished on it, by its great individuality and exclusivity.
All the rooms are furnished with original period pieces, from antique canopies to rare consoles, and ranging in style from Empire to Settecento, from Liberty to Art Deco. Some rooms come with elegant private terraces, where you can spend an unforgettable evening, enjoying a candlelit dinner served against the magical backdrop of Venice at sunset.
All year round.
