In Venice's historical district of Castello, the luxurious and romantic boutique hotel Liassidi Palace Hotel can be found at the edge of Ponte dei Greci next to Riva degli Schiavoni just a few steps away from Piazza San Marco (St Mark's Square) and a few minutes' walk from the city's cultural attractions and shops. This luxury boutique hotel in Venice is ideally positioned for those wanting to visit the Biennale festival as the Castello and Arsenale districts are very close by. The elegant interiors of this 15th-century palazzo with Murano glass chandeliers and exposed beams are the perfect backdrop for the contemporary art and design and 18th-century Venetian style. Liassidi Palace Hotel can be accessed directly from the water's edge from the San Lorenzo Canal.
Whilst a trip to Venice isn't complete without visiting the city's key cultural masterpieces: St Mark's Square, the Church on the island of San Giorgio, the Church of Madonna della Salute and the Church of the Redentore, if you wish to enjoy a quiet moment away from the Venice tourist trail (recommended), just step outside Liassidi Palace Hotel and take Calle della Madonna where Castello's alleys and small squares feature the most authentic local atmospheres, where time stands still and the true soul of Venice reveals itself as the local Venetians go about their daily lives. For Murano glass and leather goods head towards the area of Rialto where there are many artiscan workshops, designer shops and a lively fish market.
Relax in the bar to some live music and enjoy one of the many delicious cocktails or traditional Venetian aperitif 'spritz' before heading out to one of the many excellent restaurants Venice has to offer. For a really special Venetian experience where the food is as good as the service head to Osteria di Santa Marina an elegant trattoria situated on a pretty square a few minutes north of Rialto. For some of the best desserts in town and not far from Piazza San Marco head to Il Ridotto which seats no more than 18 at any one time.
Boutique hotels in Venice are not known for large or spacious rooms, however Liassidi Palace Hotel is one of the few exceptions. The 26 rooms and suites are spread across 5 floors of this 15th-century palazzo and stand out above many of the other boutique hotel rooms in the city, on account of their generous size as well as their sophisticated and graceful interiors which combine 18th-century Venetial style with contemporary design. Expect rooms full of light with theatrically draped windows, oak and walnut furniture, wooden floors and splashes of 20th century design pieces from Gustav Klimt, Amedeo Modigliani, Andy Warhol and Pablo Picasso to name just a few. Most of the rooms have views over the canal and some guests will have the privilege of overlooking the Basin of Saint Mark with the church of the island of San Giorgio. Others overlook the courtyard, city streets and the church of San Giorgio dei Greci. The en-suite bathrooms are large and are entirely decorated with “Bisazza” mosaics and feature either a Jacuzzi or Whirlpool bath or a Scottish shower (a therapeutic shower in which a person is sprayed alternately with hot and cold water).
