The stunning Palazzo Venart Luxury Hotel opened its doors to the public in August 2016 and is the latest LDC luxury hotel in Italy. The five-star Palazzo Venart Luxury Hotel consists of 18 prestigious and fastidiously decorated rooms and suites, each based on a unique aspect of Venetian history and culture. Fronted by its placid garden which opens directly onto the Grand Canal, the entire 16th century Palazzo and grounds have been carefully restored to their former grandeur with minute attention to detail.

Nothing to show.
We had a fabulous 3 night stay at Palazzo Venart. The staff were so attentive and helpful, with nothing being too much trouble. Our room (Palladio) was gorgeous and comfortable, with the extra bonus of a terrace for our morning coffee. Only minor quibbles would be that the air con had been switched off centrally but due to it being unseasonably warm for the end of October, the room was overly warm - that was resolved by throwing open the doors to the terrace, but then the mosquitoes came in! That aside, we had a brilliant stay, including a visit to the hotel restaurant Glam. would highly recommend for anyone looking for a touch of luxury.
Gorgeous location & sumptuous hotel but room was very, very dark (only dim lighting) and way too cramped; only restaurant for dinner is a small Michelin one which was booked up; and they didn't want to do 6am room service coffee when it's a 5-star hotel offering this.
Off the beaten path, a luxury hotel with no real room service but a fantastic breakfast outdoors. The rooms were elegant in an overstuffed, dark Venetian way, with a lot of marble. Staff was just lovely and so helpful. You'll do a lot of walking if you stay here, whether you want to or not. It is close to a Vaporetto stop and you can get a water taxi right at the garden on the canal, but water taxis are crazy expensive, no matter where you are going. (Also, be prepared to be able to climb up a ladder from the taxi to get onto the dock at low tide.) The streets all around are those lovely small streets where Venetians actually live. We never had dinner there because it was a very costly 3 course prix fixe meal. And the idea of a garden is lovely, but it keeps you further away from the canal and you can't eat in the garden on lounge around. I think I would rather have stayed on the canal. We thought we were being clever avoiding the crowds around San Marco but there are no bridges near this hotel, so you have to walk back to the tourist areas anyway. Next time I'll just accept that I'm a tourist and stay in a hotel near Piazza San Marco.
