We stayed at the Aman Canal Grande over Carnivale weekend, and it was like staying in our own private palace.
Being met at the airport and whisked to the hotel by water taxi felt like being in a James Bond movie. On arrival Olivia the manager showed us around as if we were guests in her (very grand) house. Each of the staff in reception, concierge, spa and the dining room fell over themselves to help in any way they could.
The building itself is glorious, with the old world grandeur of its decoration contrasting wonderfully with new minimalist furniture. We stayed in a Palazzo bedroom, which was enormous compared to most hotels in Europe, and featured the trademark large Aman bathroom. The hotel is large and we felt like we had it almost to ourselves most of the time, barely seeing other guests.
It's a little way away from the main tourist features in San Marco, but it's only a 15 minute walk and the setting on the Grand Canal more than makes up for that.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Aman Venice, Italy Meandering in an s-shape through the heart of Venice, the Grand Canal is the city’s main thoroughfare, lined with more than 170 gracious buildings. It is in one of these regal homes directly on the Grand Canal that Aman is housed. Palazzo Papadopoli was built in 1550 but now fuses the romance and history of Venice with the hospitality and service for which Aman is renowned. The resort offers 24 suites, some featuring protected frescos and views of the canal. ... more less
