Opulence, luxury and value are all wrapped up into one very romantic and affordable package at boutique hotel Bloom B&B in Venice, just a few minutes from St Mark's Square, Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana. Recently opened, Bloom B&B is situated on the top floors of a private 13th-century building and the interiors are a decadent mix of velvets, exposed beams, wooden floors, elegant furniture, old and new, with modern design in the bathrooms. The floors beneath Bloom B&B are home to sister boutique hotel Settimo Ceilo's 3 rooms which are just as lavish with organza curtains, painte beams and more muted colours. This pair of chic B&Bs share a stunning minimalist roof terrace with dreamy views across Venice.
Head to the fabulous roof terrace for a complimentary prosecco (or two) and enjoy the views. On a rainy day there is a library with comfy chairs, shelves of books and animal-print rugs. Saint Mark's Square, the Teatro La Fenice Opera and Rialto Bridge are all within 10 minutes walk.
Purples, reds, velvets, gilded mirrors and flocked wallpapers re-create the palazzo feel in all of the rooms, each dramatically different, all incredibly stylish and romantic. The bathrooms are chic and modern and all rooms have a private bathroom with shower or bath, LCD TV, air-conditioning, safe, mini-bar and free WiFi. The rooms at Settimo Cielo are decorated in softer tones with exposed painted brick and beams, billowing organza curtains and ornate headboards.
