“New Year visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Corte di Gabriela for 3 nights over the new year 2012/13. Never before have we been to a hotel that has made us feel so welcome, and special. Our room was beautiful, spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The staff were wonderful, very helpfull, and courteous.
The excellent location of the hotel within San Marco only adds to the overall experience.

This is a beautiful boutique courtyard hotel located near the Campo San Angelo. It has been superbly decorated with exquisite attention paid, not only to its finest artistic details, but also to every imaginable need of its pampered guests. You could be staying in one of the finest private homes in Venice! there is a grand piano in the drawing-room and beamed and frescoed ceilings. It is totally quiet and yet within minutes amble of all the famous sightseeing joys of Venice. Fabulous buffet breakfast.The service is faultless and there is only one goal for everyone who works there - making its guests blissfully happy.

in occasion of my girlfriend's birthday, we stayed in this cute and splendid hotel in the centre of venice. the staff was very welcoming and comforting during our stay and the structure of the hotel was very neat in details, not loosing the typical architecture despite the modern refurbishment.
a particular note goes to the tasty breakfast and the wine selection to make the weekend that little but more romantic.
i'm looking forward to come back very soon and i strongly advise to choose this hotel rather than going for the standard, commercial option.

I stayed at Corte Di Gabriela with my family in July 2012. We had the most incredible time.
All the staff were lovely, nothing was too much trouble for them and they made our stay as luxurious as it could be. An added bonus of the holiday was the delicious homemade bread served at breakfast! I would highly recommend this hotel.

It was our great fortune to discover by chance the Corte di Gabriela in Venice. From the moment we spotted the inviting entrance we were completely charmed. The small hotel is the perfect blend of elegance, warmth and contemporary sophistication. It truly captures the magic of Venice. Situated on a quiet street, it is housed in a 19th century building that was originally the residence of a prominent attorney who headed the Venetian Syndicate. The owners are the most engaging and lovely couple whose labor of love is the Corte. They had just completed a beautiful and thorough renovation of the house. Every detail of design and construction was well considered and expertly executed. It is very unusual to find this level of perfection in a hotel. Our room was quite wonderful and chic with a canal view. And every breakfast was another highlight. Gabriella and Gian Luca were wonderful hosts and their staff is friendly and always there to assist. We had four fabulous days in the Venice in part because we felt as though we had been their personal guests. We are dreaming of our return to Venice and to the Corte di Gabriela.

Great design hotel, convenient location, great atmosphere thanks to the hotel and the owners who really gave warm welcome! Stood three days and were the great days. A unique combination between design and old, modern features and comfort, in the middle of Venice.

The breakfast was great and the rooms very nice and comfortable, each one different from the others. Definitively a place to come back when next in Venice.

We stayed at the corte di gabriela for two nights in October 2012 and it was wonderful!

Our room was newly-rennovated, super stylish and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was amazing with a huge bath and a rainforest showerhead (I wish i had that bathroom at home!) There was also an iPad in the room, although we didn't really use it because we both have iPhones.

The breakfast was great - they had lots of little pastries, plus fruit, cereal, meat, cheese and freshly-squeezed juices. There was also the option of cooked omelettes or crepes with Nutella - all of which were delicious! The cappucino was amazing, too.

Concierge were extremely friendly and helpful - they lent us an adapter/converter because the one we brought didn't work, and also gave us train times, helped with directions and came straight up to the room when the Sky TV wouldn't work.

The location was perfect - five minute walk from St. Marks Square and a two minute walk to the waterbus stop which takes you straight to the train station. It's also right near a supermarket incase you want to get drinks or snacks for the room or your journey.

It's a little on the pricey side, well for us anyway, but totally worth it! We had a fantastic stay and wouldn't want to go anywhere else if we came back to Venice.

There was just one drawback... The bed was so comfy we didn't want to leave the room!
