Hotel Palazzo Giovannelli
A highly individual choice housed in a faithfully-restored palazzo that retains much of the building's character while providing a fresh contemporary ambience.
Many rooms offer views over the Grand Canal and it has its own landing stage, though the street entrance is a little hard to find.
Being a little off the beaten track is however a major part of its appeal, and it's a very suitable choice to guests returning to the city who want something different off the tourist trail.
A handsome white 4-storey former 16th-century palace with dark windows, a terracotta roof and small narrow balconies to some rooms. A narrow wooden-decked courtyard leads to the rear entrance. Opened as a hotel in 2010.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms
Built Year: 1500s
Refurbished Year: 2010
A sensitively renovated interior projects a cool, fresh feel, retaining many of the palazzo's original features such as carved stone archways and beamed ceilings.
The bright open lobby, with pale rendered walls, has a smart lounge bar at the canal end with stools and soft pastel chairs. To its side is a small breakfast room, where white walls compensate for the lack of windows.
There are no grounds.
Area Type: Facing the Grand Canal in Santa Croce, adjacent to the San Stae church but separated from it by a small canal, with the entrance tucked away in a quiet back street; it also has its own landing stage directly off the canal. There are few amenities immediately nearby; Ca' Pesaro Museum 100 yds, San Stae vaporetto 100 yds.
