We stayed at Oltre Il Giardino for our 25th wedding anniversary celebratory trip to Venice. It's a peaceful hotel with just 6 rooms. We stayed in one of the Junior Suites which was very clean, comfortable, spacious and cool thanks to the air conditioning. Breakfast was really good - continental style but plenty to keep us going for most of the day. The main thing for us was that all the staff were extremely welcoming, very nice and very helpful. It is well located for all the sights (St Mark's Square is about 15 minutes walk away across the Rialto bridge) and there are plenty of good bars and restaurants close by. the hotel was extremely peaceful. I would highly recommend staying here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The house, which once belonged to Alma Mahler, the composer's widow who lived there in the 1920's, lies next to a small canal just a stone’s throw from the Church of the Frari, has now been turned into an exclusive but homely retreat. This enchanting place in the hearth of Venice offers something unique to those visiting the city. Our guests will feel that they have really found a home away from home. ... more less
