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
My wife and I were caught in the middle of the highest Venetian tides for a long while but thankfully we were lucky enough to be nearby Ca Marie Adele, a place with really helpful and trustful staff. We stayed there for the night and I must say that was the best room we have ever stayed in. The beauty of the place is amazing and the whole service was first class. Definitely it is the place to be in Venice. Yet again thank you to everyone at Ca Marie Adele and congrats on your amazing hotel.
Just spent three nights in this luxury boutique hotel. It was absolutely perfect: great ambience, fantastic staff, ideal location and perfect in every way. If you are reading this with a view to making a booking, then don’t hesitate and go for it!
The service was wonderful! From our very first emails, the hotel staff made us feel well taken care of. They arranged our taxi/water taxi/and gondola ride, plus provided on point directions when we were out late. We were 6 adults -and upon arrival we were warmly received with prosecco and biscuits&cream in the lovely breakfast room. The hotel was definitely intimate and boutique feeling- plush and inviting. Like we were the only people who were staying there-with all their attention upon us. The location was minutes from where we wanted to be- and taking the public water transport was super cheap. The decor was luxurious-and our entire group felt spoiled. I was also given an unexpected complimentary room upgrade to one of the themed rooms with a private balcony which heightened the Venice experience even further. They arranged a gondola ride for us -and included in our experience were small prosecco bottles with straws for each of us with snacks and sweets.They were the perfect touch to our sunset experience and there was no crowded line to deal with. Our breakfast on the terrace was gorgeous! It was definitely a romantic setting-but I was traveling with friends/family and amongst us there was only one couple. Yet we never felt out of place or awkward. Then upon checkout, the hotel allowed us to leave our bags since our train wasn't departing until the evening. When we returned from shopping and sightseeing, we were provided refreshments and snacks before our departure. We even met the owner and he was super gracious to us in seeing us off. The stay was a bit of a splurge compared to other hotels-but none of us regretted it and our experience literally made our visit to Venice magical!That sounds so cliche...but that's how hotels should make you feel - and they did this splendidly for us. After experiencing this- I don't think I can stay anywhere else. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!!
