Guests should not be deterred by the rather jaded exterior of this is welcoming and charismatic small hotel, as inside lies much of the character and tranquil atmosphere of its former life as an abbey.
Situated just off the busy Lista di Spagna and very close to the station, it provides a peaceful haven from the throngs of tourists close by, with the added benefit of a secluded rear garden for breakfast or relaxation.
The location is very convenient for shops and restaurants, and while it's some distance from most major sights, a vaporetto stop is only 100yds away.
A nondescript, tired-looking beige 3-storey property with green shutters and crumbling plaster, formerly part of an abbey that dates from 1879.
Property type: Hotel
Built Year: 1879
Exterior: Former Abbey
The interior, full of character has a dark, marble-floored reception with exposed ceiling beams.
The former abbey refectory has been faithfully preserved and now serves as a delightfully atmospheric high-ceilinged lounge/bar, with an impressive mosaic floor, raised pulpit, plenty of comfortable red brocade seating and a marble-topped wooden bar.
The appealing wood-panelled breakfast room benefits from a large skylight.
A delightful and surprisingly spacious rear garden is bordered by the old abbey buildings and the Scalzi church, and has a central raised decking with low wicker chairs under a large canopy, 2 canopied seating areas, all surrounded by shrubs and orange trees. Breakfast can be served here in summer.
Area Type: In Cannaregio on a narrow side street that leads off the bustling Lista di Spagna, with its abundance of tourist shops and eateries, 175yds from the railway station and 100yds from Ferrovia vaporetto stop.
