In the famous Clock Tower (Torre dell'Orologio) itself, the building from which Italian painter Canaletto produced some of his finest paintings, the 5 Canaletto Suites is an exceptional destination from all points of view. However, even though the location is extraordinary and the level of comfort almost irreproachable, the bling bling luxury of the suites won't appeal to everyone.

    Location 9.0 /10

    The Clock Tower affords an unobstructed view of Saint Mark's Square (Piazza San Marco). The Canaletto Suites occupies the right side of this remarkable building (the central part is open for visitors), facing the clock from Saint Mark's Square. An exceptional site.

    The water bus (vaporetto) stops San Marco-San Zaccaria and San Marco-Giardinetti are about 350m away, and there is also a stop for the blue and orange lines of the Alilaguna water shuttle to the airport.

    Accommodation 9.70 /10

    The five Canaletto suites are exemplary in terms of comfort and amenities: XXL screens, luxury complimentary toiletries in the bathrooms, a stereo system, an iPod station, a DVD/Blu-ray player, etc. The decor, on the other hand, won't be to everyone's liking. The golds and silvers, the abundance of marble and mirrors, the overkill of luxury fabrics, and some beautiful furniture and objects...it's the Italian Armani or Versace-style bling bling luxury that prevails.

    The 3 suites on the first, second and third floors have an almost identical layout. Genuine apartments, they have two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one with a shower and the other a Jacuzzi, a kitchenette, a dining room and a lounge. Known as Giustinian, Gritti and Gradenigo, they each measure 95m² and can sleep up to 4 people.

    On the fourth floor, the Grimani suite comes with the added bonus of a terrace with the most beautiful view of Venice encompassing the Campanile (bell tower), Saint Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace, the Square, and the Lagoon in the distance. This is where Italian painter Canaletto created his artwork. Two designer deckchairs furnish the terrace nowadays, from which guests can admire the scenery. Inside, the 75m² suite includes a bedroom, a kitchenette, a dining room, and a bathroom with a shower and Jacuzzi. The whole thing is decorated in shades of green, yellow, wood and gold.

    Lastly, in the eaves of the 5th floor, the Tiepolo suite is without a doubt the most charming of the suites. 'Only' 55m² and decorated in shades of blue, it is more intimate than the others and affords a view of Saint Mark's Square through the small windows overlooking the Basilica. Although less spacious than the other suites, it nevertheless includes a small kitchen, a dining room, and a bathroom with a chromotherapy-equipped shower and a sauna!

    Overview 7.50 /10

    The Canaletto Suites opened their doors at the end of summer 2012, after many years of renovation works, in a richly historic building with an unobstructed view of Saint Mark's Square. Named after the famous artist who painted some of his most well-known views of Venice and Saint Mark's Square from this building, the hotel consists of 5 suites spread over 5 floors. Each of them is an apartment in its own right, complete with a kitchenette and dining room, and a lounge or second bedroom for some of them. The communal areas consist of the stairwell and the lift, as there is no reception area. Instead, there is an entry code for the door. The reception is in fact at the Bellevue Suites, in the side street just opposite. The hotel's discrete entrance is marked only by a gilded sign on the wall, near the door.

    To know

    The Canaletto is not really a hotel, in the sense that there is no reception and the suites are in fact real apartments. However, all the usual hotel services are available on request, from private chefs to butlers. Everything is possible.

      A gorgeous hotel, a palace... With two entrances, Venice style. Great arrival in private boat (or taxi-boat) on the lagoon, or more modest, through one of the bridges spanning the della Madonna dell Orto canal. You can get here in a great train: quality ambiance and services. The only bad part: Saint Mark's plaza is quite far away.

      ''Poor parent'' of the Bauer group, the Bauer hotel does not give you the feeling of a high standard hotel. However, since it shares the living-room and the restaurant with its neighbour Palazzo, and since it gives the opportunity to go by private ship to the Palladio spa, you can choose to stay at the Bauer (cheaper) without giving up the princely rest of your visit.

      A hotel with very good services and, like most of its neighbours, with a sundeck overlooking the Great Canal. But the prices are more affordable here, because the establishment is a 4-star local norms hotel. For the accommodations, because the restaurant still has the prices practiced in the Venetian palaces. The quality also, even if the recipes are as old as the city of Doges.

      The Boscolo Venezia is a quiet luxury hotel set in a very pleasant district of North Venice. Far from the other palaces of the city, slightly tucked away, this hotel has one of the most superb gardens in Venice. For those who can afford it, it is one of our favourite top-end hotels. It may be a bit far from the city centre, but we strongly recommend it if you have a few days to make the most of the city.

Tranquility and untouchable view of the Doge's palace, on the other side of Saint-Mark's basin. Be careful, however, the austere architecture will not please everybody.

      The Ca' Pisani, the first design hotel in Venice and a treasure house of little gems from the 1930s, is a paradise for Art Deco furniture lovers. An exceptional place that clearly stands out in Venice, even if the walls of the ancient palace have remain unchanged. Here is a hotel that no one comes to by chance.

The pure Venetian style and the 1930s furniture work together harmoniously each on their own. An authentic atmosphere and a very good restaurant don't do any harm either. As you'll have understood, we really liked this place!
