“Great hotel in a great location!”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

We recently stayed here for one night on our trip home from Italy and Greece and it was the perfect choice. The hotel is located in a quiet, easy-to-get-to location in Venice and the staff was very helpful. The breakfast buffet was excellent! My only critique is that it was easy to hear all that was going on in the hotel from our room on the ground floor, but this still didn't sway me from giving this hotel a great recommendation. We hope to stay again!

Room Tip: I would recommend staying in an upstairs room if possible. I'm wondering if these rooms might be...

Booked this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and was not disappointed as it lived up to all expectation. The hotel is discretely tucked away not far from St Angelo vaparetto stop and close to a beautiful peaceful square.

The location is perfect for sight-seeing with major sights such as St Marks square a 10 minute walk away but the location is also lovely and peaceful and out of the hustle and bustle.

We were warmly greeted on arrival by the English speaking receptionist and immediately shown to our room. I'd requested a room with a view as it was a landmark birthday for me and the hotel didn't disappoint. The room was spacious and had a small dressing room with a window which opened out on to a small canal. Rooms are beautifully appointed and in the bathroom our toiletries were in a little bag with a tag with our names on it. Very charming.

There's a beautiful sitting room which you can make use of if you wish with bottles of wine and prosecco for sale.

Breakfast can be taken in the lovely courtyard and is great. Home made pastries and cakes, fresh pancakes, omelettes and prosecco should you fancy a few bubbles with breakfast! On our last morning I was presented with a piece if freshly baked apple cake-very yummy.

The staff are helpful and friendly and we were delighted to be given a small present on departure. Such thoughtfulness is rare to find these days.

The hotel is expensive and so for us was a treat for a special occasion and for me it made my birthday trip to Venice perfecto!

Based on Trip Advisor reviews from past travellers, my husband and I chose to spend 3 nights in Venice at the Corte Di Gabriela. What a good decision - an absolute treat! Prior to our arrival, I easily communicated with the staff via e-mail and was able to set up direct water taxi transfers from the airport and to the cruise terminal. The location is perfect - within easy walking distance to everything you need to see but removed from the hustle, bustle, and noise of main routes. The rooms/facilities are beautiful and so clean. Our room was spacious and had every possible convenience (including daily apricots in our room!). The morning breakfast (including Prosecco and fresh fruit juice!) that is included with the room was amazing with possibly the best morning coffee I have ever tasted! The staff were not just employees but gracious and helpful hosts! We felt so privileged to be guests at this "charming little house in the heart of Venice"!!

My husband and I have just returned from a month long vacation in Italy and spent the first five days of our trip staying at this wonderful hotel in Venice.

Everything about this property hits the mark - its size, location, service, and staff create a package that is difficult to surpass.

Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet with a pleasant outlook over a canal onto a pretty garden. The room is well designed with every amenity one could possibly need supplied, together with ample wardrobe space.

Breakfast is served on the ground floor and in the beautiful little courtyard which is shaded by a magnificent, ancient wisteria vine. It consists of cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts, pastries, cold cuts, cheese etc., with hot options being offered a well. The freshly brewed coffee is delicious and is supplied by Girani Caffe, a local manufacturer - great to see local businesses supporting each other.

The owner and all the staff are very welcoming and willing to help with any questions, bookings or reservations/recommendations regarding restaurants.

The owner informed us that he is opening two apartments in August this year. These are located close by the hotel and clients will be able to have breakfast at the hotel if they so wish - watch the web page for details.

We highly recommend Corte Di Gabriela and look forward to our next trip in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel look over a small canal and are quiet. Every room has a different la...

We have just returned from a 4 night break in Venice. Its the first time we have been to venice and loved every minute, even the rain. We found Corte Di Gabriella on Tripadvisor and booked based on the reviews. The communication in advance was excellent and the trip from the airport couldn't have been easier, 45 minutes on a boat (it was a bit crowded and hot but friendly and fun) and we stepped off to a 2 minute walk to the hotel. The hotel is quite simple but beautiful and its quality shines through. Every little detail is well executed, the flooring, the handrail on the steps, the fusion between old and new is in my opinion excellent. If you are looking for a hotel with lots of glitter and men in suits and bow ties then this isn't the place for you. The staff were extremely polite and very casual in their manner, it felt like walking into your home rather than into a hotel. Our room 1003 was beautiful, again simple but with very good touches. the bathroom was modern but again well thought through and blended with the old. The venetian plaster was excellent and set the room off perfectly.

On our first mooring we were met by the owner I think, but didn't ask him his name unfortunately, he explained that he baked and cooked everything himself. There was an excellent range of savoury and sweet items along with fruit, meat and cheese. The fresh coffee, eggs and crepes were a delight and again it was served so politely and welcoming. If you are looking for a huge breakfast from a heaped buffet then again this isn't the hotel for you however there was lots of choice and the quality of the food superb.

The location of the hotel couldn't be any better. We walked the whole of venice in our 4 days, the hotel is right in the centre of the action and there are a huge number of restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk. The Vaporetto stops 2 minutes from the hotel, we bought a 36 hour travel pass and went across to the Lido and right around the canals on them.

If you are looking for a very high quality quiet retreat in the centre of venice then this is the place for you, the style, design and welcoming nature of the staff made this a perfect break for us and if we return to Venice again this is where we would want to stay.

A big thank you to everyone at Corte Di Gabtiela

PS - If you want an entertaining evening then check out Musica A Palazzo, we had never been to an opera before but loved it, go with an open mind and I think you will love it too

A beautiful little hotel with only 10 bedrooms so felt like staying with friends. Wonderful friendly service - especially at breakfast time with freshly brewed local speciality coffee and freshly made omelettes to your taste, as well as a fabulous block of local honeycomb which you can help yourself to by scooping a piece of the actual honeycomb or just dip into the bowl of freshly dripped honey ! Amazing on the freshly made pancakes !

Very convenient location with an easy walk to St. Marks Square and a lovely outside courtyard restaurant just at the bottom of the cobbled street.

Room was lovely - especially the lovely bathroom with a showhead the size of a huge dinner plate ! The whole hotel was exceptionally clean. modern and quiet.
