  • 4.8 Ca Maria Adele Venice

    Guesthouse Ca Maria Adele, Venice

    CNN

    “Most Venetian hotels take opulence to the max, but few amp up the romance as much as Ca’ Maria Adele, a 12-room bolthole on Dorsoduro, next to the iconic Salute church.”

  • 4.8 Al Ponte Antico Venice

    Hotel Al Ponte Antico, Venice

    Lonely Planet

    “Like a courtesan’s boudoir, this 16th-century palazzo is swathed in damask wall coverings, heavy silk curtains and thick, plush carpets. A smiling host greets you at the padded, golden reception desk and whisks you up to large, unabashedly lavish rooms with enough gilt to satisfy Louis XIV.”

  • 4.7 Arcadia Hotel Venice

    Arcadia Boutique Hotel, Venice

    New York Times

    “Find more reasonable rates and a warm welcome at the Hotel Arcadia, a new boutique hotel with 17 modern rooms in a restored palazzo on Cannaregio’s main drag. Included is an outstanding breakfast buffet served beneath wood-beamed ceilings and a gorgeous Murano-glass chandelier.”

    Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Venice, Italy.

  • 4.7 Hotel Novecento Venice

    Boutique Hotel Novecento, Venice

    Lonely Planet

    “Sporting a boho-chic look, the Novocento is a real charmer. Its nine individually designed rooms ooze style with Turkish kilim pillows, Fortuny draperies and 19th-century carved bedsteads.”

  • 4.7 Gritti Palace Hotel Venice

    Gritti Palace Luxury Hotel, Venice

    New York Times

    “Better save up before bedding down on the Grand Canal. At the illustrious Gritti Palace, with its 82 recently restored rooms and suites, rates start around $477.”

    Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Venice, Italy.

  • 4.7 Corte di Gabriela Venice

    Hotel Corte Di Gabriela, Venice

    Lonely Planet

    “Yes, Corte di Gabriela is a 19th-century palazzo, but there’s nothing old or traditional about its 11 rooms, which inventively play with the palace’s historic features, combining frescoed ceilings and terrazzo floors with contemporary design pieces.”

  • 4.7 Venart Venice

    Palazzo Venart Hotel, Venice

    CN Traveler

    “For the contemporary without compromising the classic, book one of the rooms at the whimsical Palazzo Venart. Reached through a hard-to-find courtyard off the Grand Canal, it’s filled with modern statues that underscore Venice’s remarkable history and fabulous art scene.”

    Featured in CN Traveler’s 2020 Gold List.

  • 4.6 Ca Pisani Venice

    Ca’ Pisani Hotel, Venice

    CNN

    “As befits its status in the Design Hotels fold, this is a bold modernization of a 500-year-old merchant’s house on Dorsoduro, near the Accademia. Not too modern, mind you; it’s been entirely redone in Art Deco style, with furniture from the 1930s and 1940s, and futurist art on the walls by Fortunato Depero.”

  • 4.6 Casa Burano Venice

    Guesthouse Casa Burano, Venice

    CNN

    “Something completely new for Venice, Casa Burano is an ‘albergo diffuso’ — or ‘scattered hotel’, an initiative sweeping Italy which takes unoccupied houses in a village and creates a ‘hotel’ around them — turning each apartment into a room, and ditching the public areas.”

  • 4.6 Palazzo Barbarigo Venice

    Hotel Palazzo Barbarigo Sul Canal Grande, Venice

    CNN

    “This fantastic little hotel on the Grand Canal, Palazzo Barbarigo occupies a small, unassuming building reached via the alleyways of San Polo. Room décor strikes out boldly from Venetian norms, with a sultry art deco feel.”

  • 4.6 Locanda Cipriani Venice

    Locanda Cipriani Hotel, Venice

    CNN

    “All the cachet but none of the crowds is what’s on offer at this gloriously relaxed island retreat, far out in the lagoon on semi-deserted Torcello. It’s a stay unlike any other in Venice — and because of its distance, it’s more suited to regular visitors who want to experience lagoon life.”

  • 4.5 Ca' Segredo Venice

    Ca’ Sagredo Hotel, Venice

    Fodors

    “A bastion of Old World elegance in the peaceful Cannaregio neighborhood, Ca’Sagredo is housed in a 15th-century palace. It showcases some of the best-preserved interiors in Venice.”

    Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Venice.

  • 4.5 Combo Venice

    Hostel Combo Venezia, Venice

    Telegraph

    “Combo, located in a restored ex convent in the Cannareggio area, is a hostel that brings together students and travellers. The atmosphere is young, welcoming and creative with lots of weekly events, ranging from art exhibitions to DJ sets.”

  • 4.5 Hotel Danieli Venice

    Hotel Danieli, Venice

    CNN

    “Few hotels can match the Danieli — an icon for all the right reasons. From the glorious old-school concierge desk to the rooftop restaurant with 270-degree views from the prisons of the Doge’s Palace to the lagoon and Riva degli Schiavoni all the way to Sant’Elena and the Lido.”

  • 4.5 Hotel Flora Venice

    Hotel Flora, Venice

    CNN

    “There’s little to dislike about the Flora. Rooms may be a little small but they’ve been thoughtfully put together, with comfortable mattresses on the antique beds, original terrazzo flooring, and Ortigia amenities in the bathroom.”

  • 4.5 JW Marriott Venice

    JW Marriott Resort & Spa, Venice

    New York Times

    “The JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa is the sole resident of Isola delle Rose, a lush private island in the Venice Lagoon. For travelers with deep pockets who want to experience the splendor of Venice with serene breaks from the crowds, this hotel is ideal.”

  • 4.5 LaGare Hotel Venice

    LaGare Hotel Murano, Venice

    CNN

    “A stunning conversion of an old glassworks factory on Murano, the Lagare’s 118 bright rooms, located around a central courtyard, have hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows, while works of art by local glass-blowers Venini are dotted around the premises.”

  • 4.4 Hotel Avogaria Venice

    Hotel Avogaria 5 Rooms, Venice

    CNN

    “What started out as a restaurant has turned into a design-led, five-room residence on a quiet side street on the far end of Dorsoduro, near the San Basilio vaporetto stop. Owner Francesco Pugliese has opted for a modern take on traditional Venetian flounce.”

  • 4.4 Bauer Palazzo Venice

    Hotel Bauer Palazzo, Venice

    CNN

    “The Bauer used to be two hotels, joined by a communal lobby: the 1940s brutalist Bauer L’Hotel, and the more classical 18th-century Il Palazzo, right on the Grand Canal. 2017 saw them come together to form a single property — and with 200 rooms at its disposal, it’s a winning combination.”

  • 4.4 Locanda Vivaldi Venice

    Hotel Locanda Vivaldi, Venice

    CNN

    “Most of the 27 rooms have views — either of the side canal or the lagoon itself. The look is traditional — heavy drapes and deep colors — and for those wanting a more home-from- home experience, the hotel also has a hot tub-equipped apartment, Ca’ Bollani, in an adjacent building.”

  • 4.4 Centurion Palace Venice

    Hotel Sina Centurion Palace, Venice

    CNN

    “Unlike the other luxury hotels on the Grand Canal, the Centurion Palace has ditched the traditional frou-frou Venetian style and opted for thoroughly modern bling. Bathrooms are clad in real gold leaf, bedrooms are given bright palettes and ceilings in the main wing can be enormous.”

  • 4.3 Hotel Excelsior Venice

    Hotel Excelsior, Venice

    CNN

    “The grand dame of the Lido island, built in 1908, the Excelsior is the single focus for the glamorous Venice Film Festival — little wonder, when it has a swish private beach, restaurant with sweeping views of the Adriatic, and decadent Moorish design in the guestrooms to match the turreted, tumbling façade.”

  • 4.2 Hilton Molino Venice

    Hotel Hilton Molino Stucky, Venice

    CNN

    “The 13-building complex (of which eight are open to guests) is full of original features, from steel columns and beamed ceilings in the lobby and guestrooms to a statue of the mill’s founder by the spa — which used to serve as his office.”

  • 4.1 Generator Hostel Venice

    Generator Hostel, Venice

    CNN

    “Originally a grain warehouse, the building has been converted into industrial design-led digs, and touches like exposed brick walls, beamed ceilings and Chesterfield-style armchairs will wipe any bad memories of past dormitory stays.”
