On the Riva degli Schiavoni, a short amble from Piazza San Marco, sits the Hotel Savoia & Jolanda; a classical Venetian hotel in the heart of Italy’s romantic floating city of Venice. Comprised of two buildings, one part of the hotel overlooks the lagoon, while the other is located just a short distance from the first, in charming Campo San Zaccaria, where you’ll also find the renowned Mauro Condussi designed church and Venice’s oldest crypt.
Bedrooms here are flamboyantly Italian with wooden beamed ceilings, ornate furnishings, Murano glass lamps and beds heaped with luxe silky fabrics. There’s a restaurant with an outdoor terrace overlooking San Giorgio Island where you can sample local dishes and sip a chilled cocktail, after a day punting along the waterways of this beguiling place.
All bedrooms are finished in a classical Venetian style and offer en-suite bathrooms with heated towel racks. Superior rooms offer a little more space than Standard rooms as well as
Kick-start your day with a buffet breakfast and tuck into delicious local cuisine at The Principessa restaurant, which serves Italian dishes with flair in the elegant dining room or out on the terrace with views of San Giorgio Island. Terrazza Cordussi on the first floor is ideal for a tapas and cocktails in a comfortable setting.
Hotel Savoia & Jolanda sits on the cusp of the Venice Lagoon on the Riva degli Schiavoni, just a few minutes’ walk from St Mark’s Square, the city’s grand piazza and home to Doge’s palace and the Basilica di San Marco, as well as the soaring San Marco bell tower. From the hotel you’ll have views out across St George Island and can easily reach Via XXII Marzo, where you’ll find the city’s best shopping.
How to Get There
This hotel is perfectly located near San Zaccaria ferry stop, and a short stroll from St Mark’s square. The breakfast buffet was great, and the adjoining restaurant pretty good too. Our room was advertised as a “Junior Suite”, which is a bit of a stretch for the price we paid. It’s a room, nice and modern though. Can’t complain about the views!
Lovely hotel! Very easy to locate from water taxi and front desk staff was great. Location was perfect, short walk to St. Mark's Basilica and Doge's Palace and restaurants. Couldn't get lost. We traveled with our teen-age sons so had two rooms. Our room had small balcony which was lovely. Rooms are small but comfortable, bathrooms are good size and modern. We loved the charm. It was very relaxing and we slept well. Breakfast was delicious with typical American fruit, eggs & bacon plus all their homemade breads and pastries and more. It was a treat. Hotel guests dine inside or outside for breakfast. We ate outside for the view. Everything was very clean and all staff were pleasant and seemed eager to please. I highly recommend this hotel and will stay again if we return to Venice. They will arrange free tour to Murano glass but we didn't have time. Upon arrival, we had welcome basket of fruit and treats which was nice touch!
Excellent location, elegant deco and spacious room make this hotel a winner! After I already made the reservation, I read a travel website talking about the importance of the hotel location, how Venice has some 400+ bridges, you don't want to be one of the tourists dragging your luggage over the bridges. This hotel is situated right in front of the water bus station, we took the water bus from the cruise terminal, got off the water bus right in front of the hotel, our room was facing the canal, had an awesome view. The hotel is very close to St. Marks Square, I am a photographer, so I was very happy to take the advantage of the hotel location, walked over to the main attractions in the early mornings and early evenings to take photos under different lightings. When it was time to go to the airport, our pre-arranged water shuttle picked us up in front of the hotel. Location is everything to me! The only thing that stopped me from giving them 5 stars is that the room is a little bit inconvenient to plug in your USB connections.
What a lovely hotel.The front desk staff were great,house keeping did a wonderful job making the bed a d leaving clean towels each day.
Restaurant meals are great and at a reasonable price, happy hour between 3 and 6pm was great way to people watch.
We would come back our 2nd floor room was a good size.
Thank you to all the staff for making our stay in Venice.
Stayed for 3 nights as part of a multi-centered holiday, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is wonderful, right on the edge of the lagoon and within 100 meters of St Marks. The rooms are of a high standard although not large they have everything you need when not enjoying Venice alfresco!
Hotel has a very good restaurant with excellent varied menu along with outdoor seating and breakfast is provided here. It is right on the front of the hotel and affords a great place to people watch whilst enjoying a meal or an aperitif.
Certainly intend to return and stay here again.
