Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
A charming boutique B&B in the heart of historic Venice, Bloom offers romantic elegance wrapped up in an intimate and cosy package. The interiors are a decadent mix of luxe velvets, tenebrous exposed beams and elegant furniture, creating an atmosphere of quintessential Venetian sophistication. The six bedrooms are split between Bloom and its sister property, Settimo Cielo, both of which occupy the top floors of a grand townhouse, and you’ll both share the same comfortable common areas. Relax with a leather-bound volume in the comfortable library, or watch the sunset over Venice from the charming rooftop terrace. Elegant and luxurious, Bloom is ideal for those looking for a romantic hideaway in the City of Canals.
This Chic Retreat is situated at the top of a steep staircase, so it’s worth bearing this in mind if this might be an issue for you.
A simple breakfast is served daily, setting you up for a day spent exploring. For more substantial meals, you’ll have to head out of the hotel. Your hosts will be happy to recommend their favourite spots, and to assist with any recommendations. Although many of the restaurants around San Marco can be tourist-traps, a good option for authentic Venetian cuisine is Trattoria da Fiore, just around the corner from Bloom. Enjoy a glass of wine poured from a barrel, and sample tantalising cicchetti, a form of Italian tapas very typical to Venice, alongside noisy locals.
Purples, reds, velvets, gilded mirrors and flocked wallpapers re-create the palazzo feel in all of the rooms. Each are dramatically different, but all are incredibly stylish and romantic. The bathrooms have modern fittings, and all rooms have a private bathroom with shower or bath. The rooms at Settimo Cielo are decorated in softer tones, with exposed painted brick and beams, billowing organza curtains and ornate headboards, but are no less luxurious than those at Bloom.
Curl up in the comfortable library with a good book after a day spent exploring the canals and bridges. The hotel’s rooftop terrace has stunning views of the San Marco district, and is the perfect place to toast the sunset with a glass of complimentary prosecco.
The hotel is located in the heart of historic San Marco, with many of the most iconic sights in Venice just a short walk away, such as Saint Mark’s Square and the Rialto Bridge. Across the square from the hotel is the impressive Chiesa di Santo Stefano, with a perilously leaning bell-tower and a ceiling designed to resemble Noah’s Ark, and constructed by the city’s shipbuilders. Duck inside the sacristy museum to find three majestically brooding Tintorettos. Across from Santo Stefano is the deconsecrated church of San Vidal, which hosts a nightly Vivaldi concert.
