“Fantastic Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

I have never bothered with writing reviews before but after staying at this beautiful "House" as the owner calls it I felt obliged to share our experience. We stayed for 3 days and of all the various hotels we stayed in during our trip to Italy it was by far and away the best. I had informed them beforehand that we were on our honeymoon and they presented us with a lovely bottle of Prosecco upon arrival. They recommend beautiful restaurants for us and the staff were so helpful and also v good with directions.
Lastly the breakfasts were gorgeous!!!

Room Tip: we had a junior suite overlooking a small canal - v good

Having just returned from a 2 night stay at the Corte Di Gabriela we are compelled to write our first hotel review on TripAdvisor....

The hotel is located close to the St Angelo water bus stop from which we navigated with suitcase in tow following Google maps on our phone. It really is only 5 minutes walk but with the midday sun, we were keen to deposit our luggage as soon as possible.

We were met at the hotel with warm friendly smiles from the waiting staff who checked us into our room. The hotel interior is of contemporary design with quality furnishings and fixtures. There are modern designer touches throughout - for example the breakfast room tables have a lacquered rust finish. This theme is carried through from the Kitchen doors to the hotel nameplate. The modern design blends nicely with the original aspects of the building, including a lovely fresco on the ceiling of our room.

Breakfast was buffet style, with omelettes and crepes made to order. To the left of the buffet table was a frame of natural honey that came recommended for keeping our energy up for all the walking in Venice. Wow, what a taste sensation. I could hardly wait for the next morning to take a scoop again. Freshly squeezed orange juice and fresh coffee made to order set us up for our day. Nothing was too much trouble.

This was our first trip to Venice and staying at the Corte Di Gabriela certainly helped to make it a holiday to remember. Thoroughly recommended.

The Corte di Gabriela is a perfect base to see the very best of Venice. We have just returned from a three night stay and I cannot find one bad thing to say about the hotel. All the staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly, from the wonderful welcome from Sarah to our delicious breakfast cooked every morning. Even though you are literally five minutes from the main areas and two minutes from a ferry/water taxi stop it is so quiet you feel like you are in the hotel on your own! The room was large, tall ceilings with an elegant bathroom and very welcome air conditioning. We really enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in recommending this gem on a hotel.

We stayed at the Corte di Gabriela for 3 nights. It is a small boutique-style hotel, offering only breakfast in the morning. The style of the hotel is a combination of clean fresh and modern design and the original structure of the historic building. Most of the main tourist attractions such as the Rialto Bridge and the Accademia Bridge
are in walking distance.
Our room was really spacious for a hotel in venice with a particularly nice bathroom. The breakfast buffet was limited in quantity but second to none offering a rich variety of delicious foods, reaching from continental style breakfast to local specialties. The service as was attentive and very friendly.

We have been there one year ago and we still have wonderful memories. The house is very charming – an inspired mix between historical value, a soft modern design and certain iconic items. The services are impeccable, too.
We had a really great time at Corte di Gabriela and we recommend this place to all our friends.
P.S. Dear G., thank you for the great coffee we had there and also for the coffee pack you gave us to take home :) We highly appreciated this unexpected and so friendly gift. We are looking forward to see you again!

If someone had said to me that one day I would stay in a gracious home on a canal in Venice with the most scrumptious food and impeccable service one could imagine, I would have said, "Yes... in your dreams", but the Corte di Gabriela delivered on all counts. This review is long overdue, perhaps I was searching for the right superlatives? The rooms are finished with exceptional detail, from the romantic ceiling frescoes to the high end bathroom fittings, this was perfection. Thank you for making our brief Venice sojourn so special.

This hotel is in a great little spot both near the centre of Venice (ten minutes walk from St. Mark's Square) and away from the most busy streets - not that late night noise seems to be an issue anywhere in Venice. The Vaporetto from the airport will take you to the San Angelo stop, which is a two minute walk from the hotel and it is very easy to find. If you don't fancy the hour-long trip you can take the bus to Santa Lucia Station and hop on tge Vaporetto from there.

The hotel itself is small but beautifully decorated; with a fine vaulted ceiling in our room, spacious lounge with chess board and a patio area in which you can enjoy the buffet breakfast, which was superb. All manner of meats, fruits and pastries are on offer and it is far superior to the standard ham and cheese fare. Omelettes are available on demand and the coffee is delicious. If you want a brilliant base from which to explore Venice and can afford it, I'd heartily recommend this place.
