“Beautiful retreat in Venice”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

The Cipriani is a legend, and rightly so. It is a beautiful place with stunning suites, beautiful terraces, great cuisine and (mostly) very friendly staff. Most importantly it is a serene retreat after you have finished exploring the sometimes very crowded sites of Venice. I will return again and again.

Beautiful Hotel in fantastic location. Continuous courtesy boat the St Marco. We had a suite with a large roof terrace that was beautiful - fantastic room! Gardens and pool are great. Breakfast very good. This Hotel offers the highest of standards. I didn't pay for it as it was a birthday gift, but clearly not the cheapest hotel in Venice. For a special occasion treat yourself and if you fancy travelling on the Orient Express go for it - very civilised!!!

Room Tip: Suite are in the original Venetian Palace part of the Hotel!

The Hotel Cipriani is really a one of a kind place due to the backdrop of St. Marks square across the canal waterway. The rooms have a Hollywood glam to them you do not usually find in Italy. We found taking their private boat service over to St. Marks to be especially refined and only on one trip were we with another couple so it felt very intimate and grand.

We stayed there before a trip on the Orient Express and there is a check in area solely dedicated for you if you are part of the train experience. Before the departure to the train the entire group meets in the lobby and the trip and stay is extremely well executed.

The breakfasts are great and ask for a table near the window if you can get it as it adds to the "Venetian Moment".

Our room had an outside private terrace that stepped out to the pool area which is heated for year round swimming.

Enjoying the bar with the piano player is especially charming and they are quick to let you know they have drinks customized by George Clooney if you are a fan.

You are in Venice without feeling overwhelmed by tourists and if you can afford this it is one of the best places to stay in Venice.

Room Tip: Ask for a patio room which can lead to the pool so you can enjoy the outdoors privately.

We have recently returned from a VSOE and stay at the Cipriani, a truly wonderful hotel; the attention to detail, the service, décor, the gardens, the peace and quiet after St Marks Square were second to none. The only note of caution are the prices - but you get what you pay for.

Second time at Cipriani this time for long weekend with the kids (13 & 10)

whilst some of the rooms are a little basic the overall experience is fantastic

wonderful dinners at Cips over looking the lagoon, impeccable service and beautiful late afternoons by the excellent pool

Cipriani is such a great counter to the hustle and bustle in the main part of Venice that its lovely after a day of sights, arts and food to arrive at the Cipriani dock nr St Marks to disappear on the boat to your own tranquility and air at this classy place

We stayed here having arrived on the Orient Express for the trip of a lifetime, and felt than in spite of the huge price tag it was well worth it. Venice itself is manic and exhausting, walking, getting lost and therefore worn out is the thing to do here, so having a place to retreat to that was peaceful and serene felt like complete luxury. One evening we took their Bacari tour by boat that visited non touristy bars with a guide, Stefano, who was great company and an interesting guide - a really relaxing way to see bits of the city we hadn't managed to cover by foot. The price of the tour is steep, but if time is short and you want to feel like you've really discovered the city in a relaxing way we would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We paid extra for a lagoon view, which we did enjoy, but we spent time either in Venice itself or in...

After a long flight we were welcomed to this wonderful hotel with a room upgrade and a nice bottle of champagne. What a great welcome! Eveyone was so kind and attentive to our every need. The room was beautiful and the sheets were fabulous. The pool bar was great and the martini was yummy! We will reccomend this hotel to all our friends.

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
