That unassuming little door in a narrow side street behind the Palazzo Grassi (Palazzina G is it's little sister I guess) leads you through to a paradise of varied designs that have a slightly naughty feel to it. The staff are friendly and attentive without being intrusive, the beds are huge and comfortable but this is much more than just... More

Elegant Philippe Starck breath-of-fresh air for Venice by Emanuele Garosci. A light-appropriate cross between the Delano and a Mama Shelter (rooms similarly small, large lovely bathrooms, few baths, delightful designs). Thoughtful and exquisite chef specializes in whimsical touches. Lounge-bar-welcome-front-desk replacement-chill zone one of the most romantic anywhere. If you can't stay, just enjoy a drink, far from the madding crowd.... More

This hotel is off the beaten path but offers a fantastic, convenient location that makes you feel somewhat like a local. It's hidden down an alley but walkable to just about everything and you are tucked away from the tourists. I love a Phillipe Stark designed hotel and wanted something more modern/trendy. The staff was particularly exceptional and welcoming, everyone... More

This is a beautifully designed hotel in a central but quiet location. We stayed in a junior suite which was very light and a good size. The ambiance was helped by the fab mirrors on each wall! The main event at the hotel is the wonderful bar and restaurant. Fabulous furniture and music made it a very seductive place to... More

I stayed here in November with my boyfriend and when I next go to Venice I will choose to stay here again. The staff were lovely, the rooms small (but perfectly formed), breakfast was great as was the lunch/dinner, and I got addicted to an Aperol Spritz or two in the afternoon. The Krug lounge was one of the reasons... More

We booked this with out knowing much about it. It feels like the hotel is hidden away down an alley way. When we got off the ferry we literally wandered around until we got our bearings and found it. When we approached the building we ran into a couple also looking for the same hotel, and felt like we were... More

This hotel is very pretty and in a nice location, but it wasn't quite as good as I'd hoped. The room itself was quite small, though the bathroom was spacious. The sheets were very rough, and the bed and pillows weren't that comfortable. The front desk staff was helpful but always seemed a bit harried. The directions (which are such... More

Second time at this Philippe Starck hotel. But this is a cosy beautiful boutique hotel. Plenty of glass and hard services softened with an assortment of furniture classics. Breakfast is served until 2pm. How great is that? Slightly off pitch but that's OK. Proper linen sheets - love them or hate them. This is Italy straight out of a 50s... More

The most chic hotel I have stayed out! We had a suite, overlooking the grand canal. Stunning! It was quiet, clean, so posh...we loved every minute. The breakfast included was quite basic and there were only a few a la carte options. You had to spend €40/person to get a decent hot meal. Other than that, everything was perfect. Location... More
