This hotel is housed in a former nobleman's palazzo, which used to be
the residence of the Armenian Sherimann family, who were famous nobles
in Venice. The family owned the palace until the end of the 19th Century
and Count Sherimann transformed the palace into a shelter for homeless
and poor orphan children during the 1800s. The building has been
recently fully renovated on the inside and outside, preserving its
original architecture. The hotel is spread over 3 levels: the ground,
first and second floors and includes 2 magnificent halls and terrace.
Two original Greek columns dating back to the 13th Century and a well
adorn the entrance. This historical city hotel comprises a total of 31
rooms including 22 double/twin rooms, 4 suites and 5 junior suites.
