Hotel Arcadia, tucked away in the lesser-known Cannaregio quarter of Venice, is a romantic boutique with a warm, stylish charm. The Grand Salon is dominated by a glittering, antique Murano glass chandelier that has watched over the Palazzo since the building’s foundation as a palace in the 17th-century. Complemented by the chandelier and other historical details, the décor is a contemporary twist on Venice’s traditions and grandeur.
An adults-only property (16 and over), Hotel Arcadia is ideal for a romantic city-break in the Floating City.
Take your time over a wonderful breakfast which includes homemade Venetian delicacies, hams, cheeses, seasonal fruits and eggs cooked to perfection.
Take part in the classic Venetian tradition of aperitivo at Hotel Arcadia’s Skyfall Bar, which offers an array of light snacks and refreshing drinks in the luxe surroundings of the Grand Salon.
For more substantial meals, there are plenty of excellent eateries in Cannaregio. Take advantage of the fact that you’re away from the tourist crowds and experience authentic Venetian cooking. Savour some chichetti-light, tapas-style Venetian bites- on a crawl of various bars and bacari, or opt for a luxuriously long, romantic dinner at Osteria Al Bacco, just a ten minute walk from the hotel.
Bedrooms are comfortably spacious, with a sleek contemporary décor inspired by Venice’s unique position as a historical gateway between East and West. Bathrooms are elegantly furnished, with handcrafted Murano glass sinks.
Located in the characterful district of Cannaregio, Hotel Arcadia is a bit more removed from the tourist-packed streets of the more famous San Marco district. Instead, enjoy a quieter, more authentic side of Venice as you wander the atmospheric canals and bridges surrounding the hotel. The famous Ponte delle Guglie is just minutes away, as is the old Jewish Ghetto.
Lovers of literature should look out for the Old World Bookshop, a wonderfully idiosyncratic rare book store that is also home to a well-known literary society, so you may well bump into famous writers, poets or philosophers as you browse the shelves.
