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.

    Location 5.0 /10

    In the north of the City of the Doges, the Boscolo Venezia is located in the Cannaregio sestiere. This district is a bit far from the city centre but is undoubtedly one of the most charming in Venice, with its many fondamenta, small streets that run alongside the canals. Very quiet and relaxing but also lively with its small bars on the banks of the canal, especially on the fondamenta misericordia.
    Access to the airport is very easy as the hotel is 200m from the Orto water bus (vaporetto) stop, one of the first on the orange Alilaguna water shuttle line arriving in Venice via Murano. The Rialto and Saint Mark's Square are a good half an hour's walk from the hotel, or you can take the vaporetto. The hotel also has its own luxury shuttle boat service that runs six times a day to San Marco (free) and to anywhere in the lagoon on request.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    Most of the 72 guest rooms at the Boscolo Venezia are located in the main palace, laid out, as is often the case in Venice, around vast richly furnished landings. From the period marble floors to the painted wall sections to the paintings and works of art, there is a sense of history all around that doesn't in the least diminish the comfort. The guest rooms are spread over 4 floors, with a lift.

    Each one is different, but there are three categories essentially based on their size: Deluxe, Superior, Junior Suite, and finally the famous Presidential Suite facing the lagoon. Depending on their location in the buildings, some guest rooms have a more or less historical setting, grandiose ceiling height, typically Venetian tiling, parquet or carpeted floors and more or less unobstructed view, on the canal side or the garden side. The 7 Junior Suites on the piano nobile (the 2nd floor, to which the main staircase leads directly), are the most spectacular and highly recommended. In any case, the amenities are excellent throughout (huge televisions, luxury toiletries in the bathrooms, free Wi-Fi Internet access, bathrobes and slippers, etc.). Almost all of them have a bathtub and two wash basins, and some even have a separate shower in addition.

    Overview 8.84 /10

    Built at the end of the 16th century, the Rizzo Patarol palace was constructed by one of the last Doges of Venice. Over the centuries, it has housed a monastery and the France Embassy in Venice, among others things. The Boscolo Venezia opened its doors in 2002 in this rich historical setting. Between the fondamenta Madonna dell'Orto and the lagoon, the hotel extends over a piece of land 150m long primarily occupied by a 2,000m garden with 500 rose bushes, classified as a 'historic garden of Italy'. Among other things, it has a ghiacciaia, a sort of cellar for storing ice, the last one in Venice.

    Most of the hotel's guest rooms and communal areas are located in the old palace, the main building overlooking the fondamenta. At the end of the garden, on the banks of the lagoon, a second building has nine guest rooms, including the exceptional Presidential Suite on the mezzanine with a lagoon view. You can make out San Michele and Murano Island in the distance. The hotel has its own pontoon and boats.

    Just opposite, the ancient palace welcomes guests into a splendid, richly decorated and well-lit lobby, with a hushed but relaxed ambiance, high ceilings, frescoes and comfortable armchairs. Towards the entrance to the gardens, a piano comes alive at around 6:30pm when the lights are dimmed for a more subdued atmosphere. Nearby, the very beautiful Doge Orseolo Bar boasts a collection of antique glasses. The entire building is bathed in a colourful and luxurious historical atmosphere.

    Food and drink

    The hotel restaurant is called La Zoia. Its small interior space with red walls is richly furnished and offers an intimate atmosphere. The windows open out onto the garden, where a large marquee and a terrace greatly increase the restaurant capacity. A very relaxing and natural setting that is more than welcome after a day in the city. The high-quality cuisine is renowned and attracts customers from all over Venice. The prices, however, also reach lofty heights.

    Spa

    Though also located in the ancient palace, the Boscolo Venezia's spa is the most modern part of the hotel. A tad gloomy, but with a highly refined ambience, it is equipped with a Jacuzzi, a hammam, a sauna and two massage rooms.

    To know

    Since September 2011, the Boscolo Venezia has been listed in Marriott's Autograph Collection.

      An a la carte hotel, choosing your room (the Great Canal view), your meals (a dinner on the terrace beside the most famous ''avenue'' of Venice): palaces in profusion and the purring of the vaporettis). Without these options, the hotel has nothing special.

      All comfort and tradition, the Bellini is well located if you want to discover Venice by foot. From the hotel, you quickly orient yourself: the Great Canal is located in front, the railway is 165 feet away on the other side. And if you decide to explore the surroundings randomly, you will discover two very endearing Venetian districts (Cannaregio and Santa Croce).

      A charming hotel just a few steps away from the railway station (very practical when you arrive here by train), a little away from the bus terminal (to get to the airport), 165 feet away from the Great Canal and in an animated area of Venice. This place is a good destination to keep in mind!

      Banned to smokers, this hotel is located in a peaceful secluded spot of Santa Croce. This is a truly stunning place which will give you the opportunity to see the authentic side of Venice. Although the Grand Canal isn't far, you won't need to catch a Vaporetto from this hotel if you want to explore the surrounding district which abounds in delightful little restaurants, narrow canals, low and brightly coloured houses, etc. Splendid!

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.

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.

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.

As you'll have understood, we really liked this place!
