What a wonderful classy hotel. My boyfriend and I were visiting a 4 different cities in Italy and this was our first stop. Such great staff that was always so friendly and attentive. We spent a lot of time at the pool bar so we got to know the bartenders pretty well, and everyone knew us by name. The fact that I did not know a bit of Italian was not a problem, everyone spoke English very well. The hotel also had their own water taxi that would bring you back and forth to St Marks Square, where they also had a "Hotel Cipriani private dock, so it was very easy to get back and forth. (about a 10 min boat ride that has spectacular views!)
The room was wonderful and had a few different wall plug types, so I did not even need to take out my European plug adaptor that I brought. Great bathroom and comfy bed The only negative I can say is that they give you an incredibly heavy metal room key that can be rather heavy to have to carry around (but obviously not really a negative) And to all you bagel lovers, they do not have them there. We asked for them with our room service and instead got a basket full of a variety of breads :) We missed staying at the hotel with George Clooney by a couple of days.. bummer. All in all a VERY classy and upscale hotel that is not pretencious at all. WIll definitely stay there again when back in Venice.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Cipriani embodies 50 years of glamour and legend, la dolce vita Venetian style, with a peerless view to the grand Palladian Church of San Giorgio. This is the Venice of everyone's imagination. The Cipriani is only three storeys high and has that classic, comfortable, "lived-in" grandeur. It is a perfect blend of historic and contemporary Venice - opulence tempered by simple elegance; antiques and works of art offset by innovative touches of unbridled luxury. The grounds are breathtaking: small gardens, expansive lawns with vines clinging to ancient brick walls or trellises and an Olympic-sized heated swimming pool, as well as a clay tennis court and a wellness centre.
