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
The staff at the Hotel Savoia & Jolanda Hotel are lovely and eager to provide suggestions and directions. The hotel is beautiful and located in the heart of Venice. Breakfast is wonderful and the rooms are clean and elegant. I highly recommend this hotel. We stayed here in October 2019 and it is one of the best hotels in the world.
Hans Bestel is wonderful and he is a concierge with the prestigious key – Les Clefs d’Or!
Hotel is in excellent location with the water bus stop steps away from hotel. The service and staff were wonderful and helpful. Hotel room and amenities exceeded our expectations.
Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel!
I want to acknowledge and thank the management and front desk staff for going above and beyond to help us with an unusual request.
We had missed an opportunity to buy a special piece of artwork from a nearby store, and left the area without any contact info. All we remembered was roughly how we walked from the hotel to the store.
We sent a rough sketch showing how we walked there, and a Google Earth photo of the store. We emailed the hotel and asked for help.
The hotel team responded, and within a few days we had the store’s business card. A few weeks later, the beautiful mosaic was hanging in our home. Thank you for this service; it was very much appreciated!
Aside from this, the hotel itself was wonderful and clean, and the front desk staff was fun, friendly and helpful!
Thanks for helping to make our visit to Venice so special.
