This stylish hotel is perched on a quiet corner of the Cannaregio district, where the atmosphere of old Venice has been preserved, off the tourist track and full of old restaurants and taverns. Yet all the sights are within easy walking distance, provided the property lies only 5 minutes to the Rialto Bridge and 10 minutes to St Mark's Square. The establishment is an example of Venice's minor architecture, but preserves the fascination of the ancient city. The moment travellers enter via the distinctive courtyard, they will be received by romantic atmosphere of the Venice of times gone by. The rooms and suites are characterised by a wealth of detail, fin de siÃ¨cle period furniture, sumptuous tapestry and modern amenities. Guests may take advantage of the mouth-watering breakfast served at the enchanting dining room and after a busy day of meetings or sightseeing relax on the rooftop terrace offering quaint city views.
