Brooding, moody Art Deco interiors set the sexy tone at this boutique hotel right on the Grand Canal. A private pier welcomes guests arriving by gondola (or motorboat), as does the waterfront bar, serving cocktails in a glamorous vintage setting. Because the building dates back to the sixteenth century, each of the eighteen rooms has its own unique layout. Of note among the captivating design features are parquet floors, ornately carved woodwork and elaborate Murano glass mosaics that glimmer brightly along the façade. Further enhancing this tribute to fine living is an enviable location within easy strolling distance to the Rialto Bridge.
