Our stay at the Cipriani was everything we hoped it would be, & more, for our trip to celebrate my Mum's 70th birthday. Airport transfers on arrival to the hotel by taxi & boat (you pay extra, but well worth it), then to the train station on our departure (where we boarded the Venice Simplon Orient Express for our return journey to London), were effortless & provided another chance to discover more of the watery landscape that Venice has to offer. All staff - without exception - were friendly, professional & nothing was too much trouble. We were upgraded to a spectacular lagoon (water) view room & our room and italian marble bathroom were spacious & gorgeous. Fresh roses, complimentary wine/Venetian biscuits & Bulgari goodies also welcomed our arrival. The Oro Restaurant was amazing (haute cuisine) and so much better than Cip's (the more relaxed restaurant but still very expensive - our only slightly disappointing experience in the whole hotel). Room service for breakfast was also prompt & high quality - as was the breakfast served in the restaurant. The whole hotel and gardens are beautifully presented & immaculate - there are fresh flower displays and the most beautiful orchids everywhere. All staff provide an outstanding service, from the housekeeping ladies, to the Concierge, reception and restaurant guys - there is even a complimentary water taxi shuttle to St Mark's to see the sights (takes approx 10 mins). You get the best of both worlds at the Cipriani because you can access the Venice sights easily, but are well away from the dreadful tourist traps around St Mark's. We had an absolutely magical time at the Cipriani & could not recommend this as a place to stay highly enough.
- 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.
