    Our opinion

    A luxury hotel offering modern comforts and fascinating original features.

    Hotel description

    A four-star superior hotel overlooking the Grand Canal in Venice, the Hotel Palazzo Giovanelli combines contemporary stylishness with the history of its setting; the palace was home to the Foscarini family in the 18th century and has also played host to such guests as Mozart and the King of Denmark. Just a few minutes away from the famous St Mark’s Square and the Rialto Bridge, this hotel is perfect for those looking to explore the sights of Venice. A waterside door also means that guests can step out straight into a gondola, ready to glide across to Venice’s many islands. Enter the hotel through the sleek downstairs spaces. Embellished stone archways lead into rooms of marble floors, monochromatic geometric soft furnishings, and captivating modern and ancient sculpture and painting. In the lounge area stands an ancient well, now topped with flowers. In the breakfast room and some of the guest rooms, traditional wooden beams are visible on the ceiling. Each of the guestrooms either has a view of the Grand canal, the hotel’s pretty courtyard, the Ca’Pesaro, or the Church of San Stae; all of which are beautiful in their own right. As there are just 41, this glamourous hotel retains a real feeling of exclusivity, which is continued in the refined style of their decoration. Polished wooden floors and large windows complement the white sheets and armchairs, while the red, purple, or umber throws and cushions add a regal touch. Rubelli fabrics, parquet or Venetian Terrazzo floors, and travertine or Lasa marble in the bathrooms epitomise the luxury feel. Some rooms have feature walls of exposed brick or textured wallpaper. Junior Suites incorporate more historic features, such as carved beamed ceilings, intricately painted walls, heavy dark oak doors, or four-poster beds. After a day spent enjoying the romantic streets of Venice and the luxury of your room, relax with a drink in the very modern bar.
