  • About this holiday

    Hotel Flora is a very popular 3 star hotel which provides an oasis of charm and character only a short distance from Venice's main sights. Characterised by the vines that creep up its façade, and its verdant and floral inner courtyard, this hotel is an unexpected delight in the midst of the large, vibrant city of Venice. This unfailingly popular hotel sits in a less busy part of Venice, but still only a few metres from the Grand Canal, with good access to both St Mark's Square and the Accademia.

    Our opinion

    Hotel Flora is an oasis of charm and character. Very special.

    Hotel description

    The 3 star Hotel Flora is an oasis of Venetian charm and character, situated along a short narrow alleyway just off a stylish street in a less bustling part of the city between St Mark’s and the Accademia, yet only a short distance from the Grand Canal. The Hotel Flora, with only 44 rooms, has the feel of a family home full of charming ornaments and decorated in a cosy style, a feeling enhanced by the fact that the owner, Signor Romanelli has owned the Hotel Flora for the last forty years. The pretty reception area opens onto a shady courtyard, bordered by the creeper-clad, shuttered hotel building. Here you can enjoy a refreshing drink after a day’s sightseeing and in the morning breakfast is served from 7 am. The courtyard, dotted with potted shrubs and flowers is a real bonus and is the perfect accompaniment to the rest of the hotel. The bedrooms at the Hotel Flora are located on 3 floors, with a couple on the ground floor at the rear of the shady courtyard. The rooms vary in size and style, some of the larger ones being ornately furnished in a Venetian style and others being smaller and more typical of a traditional cosy hotel. Rooms are allocated strictly in accordance with availability at the time of booking. The ambience is friendly and quaint yet everything is of a good standard, with many of the bathrooms having been refurbished to a very high standard. Some rooms overlook the courtyard and some overlook a side street. As the Hotel Flora is very special, very popular and has limited capacity, booking as early as possible in the year is strongly advised.
