The Gritti Palace

Venice, Italy • Recommendation • 21 June 2018

Originally commissioned for the Doge of Venice (the city’s highest official), Gritti Palace exudes Venetian opulence. Every room is exquisitely fitted with rich Italian fabrics, antique furniture, and Murano glass chandeliers. Up-to-date amenities and technology are also available, in case you forget you’re in the 21st century. Situated along the Grand Canal, this Old World palace boasts magnificent vistas of gondolas and water taxis streaming down the channel. The in-house restaurant, bar, and spa are enough to convince you to stay in, but the short walk to Saint Mark’s Square is also too good to pass up.

Locanda Orseolo

Venice, Italy • Recommendation • 21 June 2018

Its central location and Venetian-style rooms are just cherries on top of Locanda Orseolo’s real draw: its super-friendly staff. The front-of-the-house makes it a point to remember everyone’s names, so the superb service feels warm and personal. After a night in your Carnevale-themed room, head to the terrace overlooking the canal to indulge in the hotel’s fantastic breakfast spread. Fresh fruits, eggs done in every way, and made-to-order specialty crepes are just what you need to start the day.

Hotel L'Orologio

Venice, Italy • Recommendation • 21 June 2018

Devoid of traditional charm, Hotel L’Orologio Venezia caters to the modern eye with its sleek design and clock-themed decor. Situated by the edge of the channel, the hotel accords spectacular views of the waterway from select rooms. L’Orologio is popular with the young crowd because of its easy access to the buzzing bars of San Polo. End your days with wine and cicchetti from Cantina Do Spade or Al Mercà before calling it a night on your semi-floating hotel bed.

Venice, Italy • Recommendation • 21 June 2018

Take your Venice experience up a notch at one of Ca Maria Adele’s themed rooms!

Novecento Boutique Hotel

Venice, Italy • Recommendation • 21 June 2018

Novecento Boutique Hotel only has nine rooms, but each one surprises with an eclectic ethno-antique theme. Spot African and Middle Eastern furniture, Moroccan rugs, and terrazzo floors—a mix that calls to the maritime republic’s reach beyond Europe. Spend laid-back afternoons at Novecento where the Living Room comes fully stocked with complimentary coffee, tea, and cakes.

Oltre il Giardino Venezia

Venice, Italy • Recommendation • 21 June 2018

Oltre il Giardino Venezia used to be the home of Alma Mahler (composer Gustav Mahler’s widow) before opening as a country house-hotel in 2004. The exclusive retreat is your home away from home in Venice, with only six rooms to guarantee a tranquil stay. Find peace in the lush garden where olive, magnolia, and pomegranate trees drown out the bustle of the city. On sunny days, enjoy breakfast amongst the greenery and the sound of gondolas splashing through the nearby waterway.

Charming House DD724

Venice, Italy • Recommendation • 21 June 2018

Located in Dorsoduro, Charming House DD724 is close to various art galleries—including the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. The boutique hotel greets you with modern fixes, a welcome change to the city’s nostalgic atmosphere. The breakfast room becomes cramped when fellow guests get hungry when you do, so time your morning meals carefully.

Generator (Venice)

Venice, Italy • Recommendation • 21 June 2018

Generator is an economical alternative for solo travelers and budget jet-setters with its array of dormitory beds and private rooms. (Book the latter to get a little bit more solitude!) Standing on a former grain warehouse, the “poshtel” (posh hostel) was converted to its current industrial design finished with beamed ceilings and exposed brick walls. Nestled in the middle of Giudecca Island, Generator spoils you with gorgeous sights of the city center. On warm nights, join your fellow hostel-mates on the waterfront, which becomes an extension of the lobby. Watch out for regular movie nights, karaoke sessions, and DJ sets!

Casa Burano

Venice, Italy • Recommendation • 21 June 2018

Casa Burano is the pioneer of the “albergo diffuso” (scattered houses) movement, which transforms vacant village houses into hotel-like accommodations. Straight from the vaporetto (water bus), you will be escorted to a contemporary room that features a giant bathroom. The brand’s five apartments on the island of Burano allow you to live the local Venetian life. See the area’s iconic technicolor homes, buy lace and linen from the shops, and munch on native S-shaped Bussolai biscuits.
