I have always wanted to stay at the Hotel Cipriani and finally had the chance when my fiancee and I took a quick trip to Venice in September of 2008...The hotel is on an island away from the hustle and bustle of Venice...There is a shuttle that takes guests back and forth to St Mark's Square...The hotel is finished in an understated, classical fashion...The rooms are finished in a similiar style and, quite frankly, could use a bit of touch up...The hotel has lovely grounds and a beautiful and large pool...The restaurant is very good and is regarded as one of the best in Venice...Service is refined and very good...Venice itself is incredible...True it is touristy, crowded and expensive but it is a place that one has to visit...The Cipriani is definitely unique, has amazing grounds and provides a haven on tranquality away from the crowds of Venice but did not live up to my (very high) expectations...Subsequent to our stay, my wife stayed at the San Clemente Palace...She said that she liked that more and provided much better value for money.
- 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.
