We arrived with several others but were welcomed warmly and the check-in process was quick and efficient. Our room was very large and, with a garden view, had a spacious private terrace with sun beds, table and chairs. Throughout our stay, staff were friendly and efficient.

A complimentary boat service runs across to a private landing in Piazza San Marco or there is a near-by vaporetti stop close to the hotel from which you can reach the other islands. Food and drink in the hotel is very expensive, even by Venetian standards. The food is excellent but there is a lot to be said for exploring the city - a mini-bar price list would have been nice as it would allow guests to decide if the wish to spend more than €10 on a small bottle of water or beer! The included breakfast offers excellent variety and quality, which may be served in your room or on the terrace looking out onto the lagoon.

It is expensive but is somewhere that I would choose again, for its location, ambience and level of service.

Staying at the Cipriani was the fulfilment of a long held ambition. The depth of skill and experience of the whole Cipriani team is so welcoming and warming. Many grand people stay there but 'ordinary' folk like us were just as welcome. The style of the food at Oro is a work in progress but, like everything else, it will settle and stand the test of time

This review is late in coming because I stayed at the Cipriani in October 2012 in conjunction with a trip on the Orient Express. First of all I was given a room in a building adjacent to the hotel. While the room was beautiful, as a single female travelling alone I felt rather isolated there and requested a room in the main building. I was given a 'suite' as that was all that was available. I can assure you that you would never find photos of this suite on Cipriani's website or any of their promotional brochures. The suite was stuck in the 1990's. Tacky faux finishes with porcelain lemons stuck to the walls. Worn wall to wall carpeting & cracked floor tiles in the bathroom.

I was surprised that there was no iron or ironing board in the room so I called house keeping to request one. I was told that for safety purposes (???) we were not allowed to have irons in the rooms but that they could do it for me. I asked what the charge would be as all I wanted was the sleeves to be ironed, I was told to check the prices on the laundry list found in my room. It was 18 euros to have it laundered and when I called back to say that I only want to have it ironed I was told they don't have a separate price for ironing. Needless to say I left the hotel with wrinkled shirt sleeves.

Since my time in Venice was limited I wanted to see as much possible so I asked the front desk for advice on tours. They recommended a personal tour for 70 euros that would take me to the island of Murano. I took the tour & was picked up by my tour guide who I recognized as the taxi driver who picked me up at the airport. He pointed out a few historical places along the way but mostly it was a brisk ride straight to Murano where I was met by an employee from one of the factories who did not leave my side from the moment I got there to the moment I left. So that was basically my tour. When I arrived back to the Cipriani I took the shuttle to the main land where I discovered a tour that was more of the type I wanted. Half day tour that included 3 islands for 20 euros. I complained to the staff at the Cipriani for not informing me that there were other more comprehensive tours available. I was given a refund for the tour which I really didn't care about as I lost a day which I couldn't get back.

I stayed at this wonderful hotel the night before boarding the Orient Express back to London - everything is what you expect it to be.
First class service amazing food and rooms all individually furnished
The additional bonus you are checked in at the hotel for your train journey home

My wife has always wanted to visit Venice,something that I had done in the mid 60's prior to university. We chose The Cipriani because of our past experiences of Orient Express hotels and we were not disappointed. from the moment that we were met on the private quay from our personal transfer from the airport, everything was perfect. The lagoon view room was just what we had hoped for and the staff were outstanding in their help and support. A private tour had been arranged for us on our first morning which was superb and showed us all that we wanted, thus allowing us to arrange our own visits ( with the advice from our guide) for the next day.
We ate at both of the main restaurants and were delighted with the food. Both menus were equally delicious and the sommelier recommended outstanding local wines at very reasonable prices.
The sea water pool was excellent with attentive pool attendants and a great lunch menu.
Water transport to the islands can be accessed from just outside the hotel and is very reasonable in price if you purchase a 12 hour ticket. We visited both Murano and Burano, which should not be missed.
The views are outstanding from the hotel which looks directly towards St Mark's Square. One of the great travelling experiences. If you are going to Venice, a three night say is adequate and my advice is "Stay at The Cipriani for an experience to remember and one that will make memories of one of the most beautiful cities in the world so much more memorable".

Room Tip: Lagoon view is worth the extra cost.
