Charming House Iqs represents the newest slant on contemporary accommodation in Venice. A gothic palazzo has been transformed into a small luxury boutique hotel in the heart of Campo S. Marco overlooking Rio Santa Maria Formosa. Guests can hop off straight from the canal through the glass doors into the house.
The 4 elegant and luxurious suites have been created to ensure that guests will feel very much at home. Warm, daring colours have been used and the space has been used to maximum effect. The products are presented in extravagantly large tubes and bottles and have the exotic fragrance of fig extract. The soft drinks are complimentary as are the daily printout of international papers, the capuccino machine, WIFIand elegant vanity courtesy box.
How to get there?
CharmingHouse i Qs
How to reach us:
1. arriving by plane at Marco Polo Airport: by water taxi (30 minutes ride to Campiello Querini), by public transportation water bus Alilaguna (one hour ride to San Zaccaria stop). Water taxi stop and Alilaguna stop: you will find the signs once you get outside the airport. It is towards left, about 200 meters away from the airport. You can check the Alilaguna timetable.
2. arriving by plane at Treviso Airport: by taxi or by bus to Piazzale Roma (then see below).
3. arriving by car or train: from Piazzale Roma (recommended parking: Garage San Marco, for which we offer discount coupons) or from the train station you can take the "vaporetto" (public transportation water bus) lines 1 or 2 (faster) to the Rialto stop. In alternative, you can take a water taxi to Campiello Querini. We have a private pier, inform the driver of this, on Rio Mondo Nuovo.
Five minutes walk: indications bear many street names, but the distance is really short. All these turns will be of only 10, 20, 30 meters. From the Rialto stop: you leave the stop behind you, go left along the Riva del Ferro until you reach the base of the Rialto bridge. Once you reach the bridge you go right into Salizada Pio X. You will now reach Campo San Bartolomeo, that is a large square with a statue in the middle. Facing this square and having the Rialto bridge behind you, you will have to look on the wall in front of you, on the other side of the square, and take the last street on the left, under a sort of arch, called Calle Stp. Bissa. From now you will have to go straight for about 200 meters until you will reach on your left Calle del Mondo Nuovo. Here you turn left, reaching a large square called Campo Santa Maria Formosa and you will see the church with the same name. You will have to walk around the church until you reach its back and then take the small street you will see in front of you. It will take you straight into Campiello Querini, your destination. In front of you will be a private gate, number 4425. The bell is on the left of the gate.
Charming House Iqs will assist with taxi bookings. Fares are not added to the hotel bill.
