How to Get There
Just a block away from the busy Strada Nuova. The kind, genuine and efficient desk staff is what elevated this hotel experience from very good to outstanding. They made transportation arrangements to the airport, helped us locate "off the beaten track" sites and got ice from the kitchen late at night for me their service was fabulous. We loved having our morning coffee as well as fresh fruit, deli meats and cheeses in the impeccably kept garden complete with statuary. Their croissants were on par with Paris. In the afternoons they play classical music and serve tea and pastries in the sun lit stained glass windowed lobby. Our corner double room had a view of the quiet bordering canal. Up one flight of stairs the room was equipped with multiple luggage racks, armoire, safe, refrigerator and a large (US sized) comfortable bed. A quiet respite in busy summertime Venice just an easy walk to shops and restaurants and the Ca'doro Vaporetto stop.
Everything - from breakfast in the garden, to sleeping under a frescoed ceiling, to conversing with Luca at the front desk - everything was what we hoped to find in Venice.
We especially want to acknowledge the excellent service provided by Luca and Darwin. The hotel itself conjures up images of ancient greatness. It's like being in another, calmer world. The serenity of afternoon tea time in the garden after a morning of sightseeing is worth, as they say, the price of admission. We left wishing we had booked a longer stay..
Arrived by water taxi directly to the canal entrance. Room was great. Breakfast was good. Staff was helpful and friendly. Walking to all the sights was easy as was access to vaporetto stops. Skip the line tour of Saint Marks was well worth the price. Guided walking tour not so great. We bought a 3 day vaporetto ticket that allows unlimited use. The unlimited ticket made it easy to just jump on the boat and not deal with the ticket machine. All in all, a great trip with a home base of the Palazzo Abedessa.
Best part was that the hotel has a canal entrance. We contracted a water taxi directly from Marco Polo airport right to the front door of the hotel. We saw so many visitors pulling luggage along the stone streets and over narrow bridges. The hotel itself is in a quiet area but a short walk to everywhere. A must is Google Maps to get around Venice. The hotel is unique. It is a former residence and each room has its own character. The key to the room is an old, heavy, gold key. We were provided with many great suggestions for dinner. Breakfast was sufficient for daily travels. It was quaint and the outdoor garden area was like a private oasis from the crowded streets.
We stayed here for 3 nights with our grand-daughter for her 10th birthday and the hotel did not disappoint. We arrived at Fondamente Nova on the Alilaguna and the hotel’s excellent directions took us there in about 10 minutes. In the other direction, the Ca d’Ora vaporetta stop was less than 5 minutes away so a superb location. 2 minutes from the crowded Strada Nova but so peaceful and quiet.
No lift but a beautiful large bedroom with silk wallpaper, a mural on the ceiling and antique furniture! Very comfortable beds (even the small single for our grand-daughter) and a spotless modern shower room. We had a view over the canal and a highlight was taking a water-taxi direct from the dining room canal door! The other side was a pretty and peaceful courtyard and garden with tables for breakfast and the complimentary afternoon tea - we were lucky with the weather!
Finally the staff - without exception, brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble and they were unfailingly pleasant. I thoroughly recommend this hotel!
