I realize that Euro hotels are different than USA luxury hotels. I went to Hotel Cipriani with such high hopes. I was very disappointed. I did not know I had to shuttle back and forth to get to Venice. Not hard but inconvenient . The hotel lobby was so plain in comparison to other Luxury Hotels in Venice. I knew I was in trouble the moment we entered. Very cold atmosphere, and the rooms followed that path.
No carpeting was the first sign, that makes for a very cold and uninviting room, the bed was old style, very hard not comfortable. The pillows were very nice. It's only the first day of November and they had the heat cranked up you would have thought it was freezing outside and it was not.
The bathroom was the only saving's grace as it was very nice with great towels and big US style shower.
The hotel did include free wifi which I did appreciate and the complementary breakfast was very good and fresh.
The expense of this property however outweighed the few amenities that I enjoyed, It's so over-rated and under performing, you can do much better in Venice at a much lower price with GREAT locations!
If you are rock star and you require complete isolation or you just want privacy then Hotel Cipriani might appeal to you, otherwise I feel like you may be unhappy with this hotel.
I would not recommend or return to this property.
- 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.
