We have been to Venice twice before. We have stayed at the very top end and also stayed at another boutique hotel. This hotel with it's 10 beautiful rooms was clearly the winner. We will come back here to stay and that's a definite. The Rooms are new and modern with a traditional feel. The rooms have a view over a small canal filled with boats or over a small Calle. The bed is extremely comfortable.The bath is generous sized and with a slick modern tub/shower combo with a rain shower head. Great water pressure here as well. Excellent free wireless connectivity and the room comes with it's own I-pad...so we didn't need bring our computer.
Probably the best feature of this hotel is the staff: including Gabriella and Luca, the owners...also Luisa, Sara and Mara. They are personable, smart and friendly. We feel like we have made some new friends.
The other feature in which this hotel excels is the morning breakfast! (which was included in the room rate) This was simply the best breakfast buffet we have experienced in 20 years of European travel. It included: every kind of coffee, cappuccino, espresso, multiple fresh squeezed juices, fresh delicious berries, three kinds of cereal grains, yogurt,homemade preserves, Prosecco, smoked salmon, boiled eggs, omelets and crepes made to order, sweet pastries, at least 7-8 varieties, savory pastries (several choices) and homemade cream filled donuts. All the baked goods are made on site and the aromas waft through the halls in the morning.
The location can't be beat...it is just enough away from all the droves but a quick walk to all the major sites. The San Angelo Traghetto stop is a 3 minute walk away. We stayed Corte Di Gabriela while attending the Venice Biennale. Both the Biennale and this hotel were experiences we won't forget!!
