This gorgeous boutique is just a short walk from Piazza San Marco, with an extremely chic combination of contemporary design and classical Venetian style—ceiling murals, marble pillars and exposed brick blend with designer furniture and appliances (including free use of iPads, strong Wi-Fi, and hundreds of satellite TV channels). Open since late 2012, the fully renovated property dates from 1870, once serving as the home and offices of Venetian lawyers. It’s the attention to detail that makes a stay here so memorable, with breakfast one of the highlights and well worth lingering over: fresh pastries made by the owners the night before, decent espresso and a spread of crepes and omelets made on request.
