What a wonderful classy hotel. My boyfriend and I were visiting a 4 different cities in Italy and this was our first stop. Such great staff that was always so friendly and attentive. We spent a lot of time at the pool bar so we got to know the bartenders pretty well, and everyone knew us by name. The fact that I did not know a bit of Italian was not a problem, everyone spoke English very well. The hotel also had their own water taxi that would bring you back and forth to St Marks Square, where they also had a "Hotel Cipriani private dock, so it was very easy to get back and forth. (about a 10 min boat ride that has spectacular views!)
The room was wonderful and had a few different wall plug types, so I did not even need to take out my European plug adaptor that I brought. Great bathroom and comfy bed The only negative I can say is that they give you an incredibly heavy metal room key that can be rather heavy to have to carry around (but obviously not really a negative) And to all you bagel lovers, they do not have them there. We asked for them with our room service and instead got a basket full of a variety of breads :) We missed staying at the hotel with George Clooney by a couple of days.. bummer. All in all a VERY classy and upscale hotel that is not pretencious at all. WIll definitely stay there again when back in Venice.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- If Venice is a theatre, Belmond Hotel Cipriani is the Royal Box. It is a resort: a way of life, an island apart, in every sense. And it involves all the senses that make a stay unforgettable. Five minutes by private launch from St. Mark’s Square, on the tip of the Giudecca Island, Belmond Hotel Cipriani is in the heart of the city but removed from its hustle and bustle. Its 95 rooms and suites are exquisitely decorated with magnificent views over the open lagoon, the gardens and St. Marks. A day here is made up of layers of wonderful experiences, from luxuriating beside the Olympic-size swimming pool (the only one in central Venice) to relaxing with a signature treatment at the Casanova Wellness Centre. The Casanova gardens offer an oasis of peace, perfect for a Thai Chi session before heading off with a private boat for a personalised excursion in the lagoon. Choose to dine at the new Oro Restaurant for a timeless dining experience or at the iconic Cip’s Club admiring the view on St. Mark’s. Sip a signature cocktail at the Gabbiano Bar or enjoy a light lunch at the Porticciolo Restaurant. A red-clay tennis court, a gym and dedicated Kids' Club with pool are also available. ... more less
