I lived in Venice many years ago and sadly find the hotels inauthentic and often theme park-like, but Ca Maria Adele is the real thing: the closest to staying in the home of a Venetian patrician family if you haven't that option! Elegant and relaxed small hotel with many fine, details: a relaxing drink upon arrival, Italian opera played in public spaces (and your room, if you choose); quirky, distinctively Venetian design flourishes throughout. Room 332 (a std deluxe) on the top floor was spacious with panoramic views of the Salute and Grand Canal: no necessity at all to book the themed rooms (but they appeared to be grander still). The staff are friendly and very helpful throughout. The engaged, convivial owners are personally involved making you feel relaxed and most welcome. Excellent, enormous breakfasts (though a bit silly having to pre-order the night before). Prices may seem steep for the level of amenty (ie, no restaurant, spa, elevator/lift) but well worth the overall room accommodation and experience. Super location in quiet Dorsoduro, with the most dramatic views of the Salute church; convenient to S Marco, Guggenheim, Accademia, etc. You also have the advantage of the nearby Centurion Hotel (very dramatic but large and rather institutional) where you can stop for superb cocktails on the Grand Canal terrace, their courtyard or glamorous, urbane bar. Just go!!
