“Absolutely delivered.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

My wife and I took up the Orient Express offer of staying here and travelling back on the train.
Flying in across the Alps and Dolomites and landing with Venice sparkling in the sun to your right was exciting enough.
Then a private transfer by water taxi (i.e. speed launch!) was a magical way to arrive in Venice.
The Cipriani itself is brilliant and you can't help but feel the history.Getting the motor launch to and from St Marks Square makes you feel like a movie star.even if you aren't.
The pool is brilliant,the grounds on its own private island are magical (especially considering the compact nature of the rest of Venice),the restaurants were all good and the service was absolutely top class - warmth and friendliness that comes with the confidence of places that know they are first rate and special.
We had lunch at the Danieli once and although the meal was great i noticed that that it was a stuffier, less friendly service than we experienced at the Cipriani.
All in all it was an absolutely perfect place to stay to visit Venice.
Having the Orient Express train journey home was special so look out for those offers (usually published at Christmas for trips around March/April time) as the combined deal is well worth it.

Elegant hotel sited on an island just off St Marks square - offering an unequaled vantage point of Venice and unparalleled level of service and amenities. Our room was very chic, gardens lovely and restaurants excellent. The vintage boats a treat and staff exceptional. we felt completely indulged and if in a classic movie! The resort is a premiere property (with premium pricing) yet has a warmth and is a very special way to experience magical Venice.

Room Tip: Our room was lovely and well appointed with view of St Marks

The Cipriani is a legend, and rightly so. It is a beautiful place with stunning suites, beautiful terraces, great cuisine and (mostly) very friendly staff. Most importantly it is a serene retreat after you have finished exploring the sometimes very crowded sites of Venice. I will return again and again.

Beautiful Hotel in fantastic location. Continuous courtesy boat the St Marco. We had a suite with a large roof terrace that was beautiful - fantastic room! Gardens and pool are great. Breakfast very good. This Hotel offers the highest of standards. I didn't pay for it as it was a birthday gift, but clearly not the cheapest hotel in Venice. For a special occasion treat yourself and if you fancy travelling on the Orient Express go for it - very civilised!!!

Room Tip: Suite are in the original Venetian Palace part of the Hotel!

The Hotel Cipriani is really a one of a kind place due to the backdrop of St. Marks square across the canal waterway. The rooms have a Hollywood glam to them you do not usually find in Italy. We found taking their private boat service over to St. Marks to be especially refined and only on one trip were we with another couple so it felt very intimate and grand.

We stayed there before a trip on the Orient Express and there is a check in area solely dedicated for you if you are part of the train experience. Before the departure to the train the entire group meets in the lobby and the trip and stay is extremely well executed.

The breakfasts are great and ask for a table near the window if you can get it as it adds to the "Venetian Moment".

Our room had an outside private terrace that stepped out to the pool area which is heated for year round swimming.

Enjoying the bar with the piano player is especially charming and they are quick to let you know they have drinks customized by George Clooney if you are a fan.

You are in Venice without feeling overwhelmed by tourists and if you can afford this it is one of the best places to stay in Venice.

Room Tip: Ask for a patio room which can lead to the pool so you can enjoy the outdoors privately.

We have recently returned from a VSOE and stay at the Cipriani, a truly wonderful hotel; the attention to detail, the service, décor, the gardens, the peace and quiet after St Marks Square were second to none. The only note of caution are the prices - but you get what you pay for.

Second time at Cipriani this time for long weekend with the kids (13 & 10)

whilst some of the rooms are a little basic the overall experience is fantastic

wonderful dinners at Cips over looking the lagoon, impeccable service and beautiful late afternoons by the excellent pool

Cipriani is such a great counter to the hustle and bustle in the main part of Venice that its lovely after a day of sights, arts and food to arrive at the Cipriani dock nr St Marks to disappear on the boat to your own tranquility and air at this classy place

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.
