Accommodation In Venice
Extravagance along the Grand Canal
Luxury is not hard to come by in the magical floating city of Venice, with most upscale hotels commanding superb positions along the winding canal. The Gritti Palace is, in a word, exquisite, blending history with world-class facilities that include the sophisticated Bar Longhi – an intimate outdoor bar with breathtaking views across the canal to the ancient Saint Mary of Health Basilica.
Mere steps from the famous Bridge of Sighs stands the award-winning Hotel Danieli, a divine retreat showcasing romantically-styled rooms and suites, and four exceptional dining venues. Lavish guest rooms and terrace suites can also be found within The Westin Europa & Regina, which is made up of stunning 17th-Century palaces.
Time for pampering
Between sightseeing, dining and cruising along the canal, you may be in need of some time to rest and recharge. The lavish Hotel Cipriani can be found on Giudecca Island, a divine oasis that’s home to the Casanova Wellness Centre. Surrender the senses with a treatment in the quaint gardens, and make use of the steam room, saunas and large outdoor swimming pool.
Housed within the upscale Molino Stucky Hilton is E’Space Fitness and Wellness Centre, Venice’s largest day spa. This blissful retreat delivers complete rejuvenation with soothing massage treatments, saunas, a Turkish bath and a rooftop pool blessed with breathtaking vistas.
Affordable hotels and B&Bs
Staying in Venice is undoubtedly expensive, however you’ll be happy to find out that there are more than a few affordable hotels offering comfort and convenience. The inexpensive Locanda Art Deco is superbly located within walking distance of the Gothic-style Santo Stefano church, and features simple guest rooms and a breakfast room.
Overlooking the Grand Canal is Ca’ Angeli, a charming bed and breakfast housing just six individually-themed rooms, with some offering scenic canal views. You can also find a quaint dining room and library, while the private moor provides easy access to water taxis. The 18th-Century family-run Palazzo Soderini has just four minimalist-style guest rooms, as well as a tranquil courtyard.
