The level of service was of the highest level, the restaurants were excellent and the pool is beautiful. A very romantic hotel and a must stay for anyone visiting Venice. Thank you for making it an amazing trip!

What a fantastic place, just perfect.

We arrived on the Orient Express from Paris and staff from the Cipriani boarded the train near Venice to check us in so there was no wait when you step from the boat into this wonderful oasis on an island facing St Mark's Square. You're whisked to your room which is bound to be beautiful, just as ours were.

The Cipriani has a 'clubby' feel and you're instantly a member. The staff are super efficient but friendly and all seem to have the most amazing memories for your preferences.

So, with that and the fact that there's lots to do in the hotel itself (numerous bars, restaurants, the fabulous pool, gardens), it would be easy to stay put and not venture out to Venice. But the Cipriani has cracked that too and provides a complimentary launch that runs 24 hours to shuttle you to and from the hotel to St Mark's Square. And when you've done the sights or had dinner, it's wonderful to return to the oasis of calm.

It's obvious that people return year after year to this wonderful property. I can see why and fully intend to be one of them.

My wife and I took up the Orient Express offer of staying here and travelling back on the train.
Flying in across the Alps and Dolomites and landing with Venice sparkling in the sun to your right was exciting enough.
Then a private transfer by water taxi (i.e. speed launch!) was a magical way to arrive in Venice.
The Cipriani itself is brilliant and you can't help but feel the history.Getting the motor launch to and from St Marks Square makes you feel like a movie star.even if you aren't.
The pool is brilliant,the grounds on its own private island are magical (especially considering the compact nature of the rest of Venice),the restaurants were all good and the service was absolutely top class - warmth and friendliness that comes with the confidence of places that know they are first rate and special.
We had lunch at the Danieli once and although the meal was great i noticed that that it was a stuffier, less friendly service than we experienced at the Cipriani.
All in all it was an absolutely perfect place to stay to visit Venice.
Having the Orient Express train journey home was special so look out for those offers (usually published at Christmas for trips around March/April time) as the combined deal is well worth it.

Elegant hotel sited on an island just off St Marks square - offering an unequaled vantage point of Venice and unparalleled level of service and amenities. Our room was very chic, gardens lovely and restaurants excellent. The vintage boats a treat and staff exceptional. we felt completely indulged and if in a classic movie! The resort is a premiere property (with premium pricing) yet has a warmth and is a very special way to experience magical Venice.

Room Tip: Our room was lovely and well appointed with view of St Marks

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.

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
