This hotel is located in the heart of Venice, just a stroll from St. Mark's Square and Rialto Bridge, but has a calm, secluded position despite the large number of tourists. With just a few minutes walk you can reach the main landings to avail of frequent public transport which takes you all over the city, as well as to the other islands of the lagoon (Torcello, Burano, Murano, Chioggia, Lido, etc.).
Campo Santa Maria Formosa, the location of this hotel in Venice, is one of the liveliest and characteristic areas of the city. The Renaissance style Santa Maria Formosa church, with its baroque bell tower, gets its name from the appearance of The Blessed Virgin in the form of a "formosa" or shapely, beautiful woman.
The same area hosts the prestigious Querini Stampalia Foundation, with its rich and much-used public library and a considerable gallery of three-hundred paintings by artists from Veneto, including G. Bella, Palma il Giovane, Palma il Vecchio, G. Bellini, P. Longhi.
