Not for fans of clean-lined minimalism, the interiors here are an explosion of antique furniture and sumptuous surface decoration — think striped silk, thick pile velvet and heavy damask. Each room is unique. The Sala del Doge is decked out entirely in crimson brocade, with a chandelier dripping in Murano glass; the Sala Noir is an inky boudoir with wrought iron lamps. The reception and lounge are similarly extravagant, with a roaring fireplace, marabou lampshades and etchings of Venice’s historic doges.
Bed and Bath
The rooms are split into three categories, with two Suites on the top floor, five quirky Concept Rooms and five Deluxe Rooms of varying size and hue. The pillows are plump and numerous, and the mattresses soft. The toiletries aren’t anything to write home about, and bathrooms in the Deluxe Rooms are small and functional, with so-so water pressure. However, they have great whirlpool baths.
This is a small hotel, so it’s not overendowed with amenities. There’s a large breakfast room, but most guests prefer to take their fresh fruit, cereals, eggs, bacon and coffee (very good coffee, in fact) in bed. There’s a room service menu with perfectly good sandwiches and salads — but really, with so many great restaurants nearby, you’re advised to be adventurous. There is also a rooftop bar, decorated in a rich Moroccan style, which is glorious for sundowners or nightcaps.
How to Get There
We have just returned from 4 night stay at this wonderful hotel. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we felt valued and spoiled. We stayed in the mini palace apartment which fully lived up to its title. Luxuriously presented a lovely private space which was welcome for chill out times between our day and evening explorations of this wonderful city and islands. Staff were attentive and helpful without being intrusive. The owner was charming and helpful also. Those little extra touches just added to the experience of staying here such as welcome drink and sweet treats, bottle of wine and snacks in our apartment. Complimentary soft drinks in the mini bar, lovely selection of toiletries and little face spritz left with our menu choice card. Breakfast choices are extensive and all delicious whichever you choose. We will certainly stay here again when we return to Venice ???? even provided with a farewell drink and biscuits while waiting for out transfer pick up.
We enjoyed a delightful stay at Ca' Maria Adele. The staff attended to everything to keep us pampered, fed, comforted, delighted in all senses, The fine elegant service we enjoyed was unlike anything we could ever imagine in the states.
The location is wonderful, far from the tourists throngs but a minute walk from the Vaporetto that takes you all over Venice. Dosoduro is a lovely quiet neighborhood. There is a private dock for a taxi to bring you in and take you out if you like.
Rooms beautifully appointed. Deliciously breakfast and elegant service. Luxuriously decorations and beautiful, sophisticated floral arrangements. It was very hot and humid while we were in Venice and we delighted coming back to the hotel. Wonderful furnishings, linens, fantastic large bathrooms, wonderful AC. We look forward to returning next time we are in Venice
I had been recommended this place by a travel expert from the US that was in love with Ca la Maria Adele. The welcome was kind and warm, with a glass of Prosecco and some delicacies. Staff very kind and helpful in the process of guidance on how to get there. Location is calm and peaceful in the middle of such a busy touristic destination, one feels in a small oasis of peace, so the experience of Venice is completely different than if staying elsewhere. The place is elegant, the interior designed with exquisite taste and a few influences from Moorish Venice, so a very interesting mix that results being quite inspiring, almost a bit theatrical. The staff is supportive and extremely friendly and helpful. I was travelling on my own but agree that it is a really romantic place. I loved every single handwritten note from the welcome to the check-out, the small cute picnic bag. I felt really spoiled and privileged. Ca Maria Adele is a gem.
