Description & Details of Hotel Palazzo Priuli
Rising alongside two picturesque canals in a quiet neighborhood not far from Saint Mark's Square, the Hotel Palazzo Priuli is an architectural gem from the late 14th century. The hotel offers easy access to many of Venice's spectacular sights. The guestrooms blend old-style charm with modern conveniences, such as mini-bars, hair dryers, and safe-deposit boxes. The hotel's residential location ensures a tranquil, relaxing stay. Originally frescoed on a facade by Palma Vecchio in testament to the wealth and prominence of its owners, the home which now houses the hotel has inspired painters and architects throughout the centuries. Offering 27 spacious guestrooms and suites, the hotel comprises a restored 14th-century palazzo with 11 rooms and suites and two annexes, both restored former residences dating from the mid-18th century. One annex of nine rooms lies across a narrow passage from the palazzo, the other of seven rooms lies 40 meters away. All guests register at the reception desk in the palazzo. The buildings have no elevators, but rooms and suites are no higher than the third floor.. <P>Guestrooms and suites are individually furnished and decorated and feature original beamed ceilings and Murano glass chandeliers. Antique furniture from the 19th century replicates 14th-century Venetian fashion, as do richly colored fabrics; gilt-frame copies of famous Venetian paintings hang on walls. Some rooms and suites also contain original terrazzo floors. Others contain wood floors. (Some terrazzo floors tilt and sag a bit, as does the palazzo's marble staircase, indicating the buildings' age) All rooms and suites contain Oriental rugs. <P>Contemporary tile bathrooms contain shower/tub combinations, bidets, hair dryers, and telephones. Other contemporary highlights include televisions, minibars, safes, and dial-up Internet access. <P>All rooms are nonsmoking. The palazzo at the hotel's center was built in the late 14th century for Giovanni Priuli, one of 14 procurators--along with three doges and five cardinals whom the Priuli family contributed to Venice. Now owned and operated by a Venetian dedicated to preserving the city's history, the hotel attracts guests who appreciate the opportunity to experience historic surroundings and some measure of a noble Venetian family's lifestyle. Serving as breakfast room, bar, and reading room, the palazzo's grand hall provides a window into Venice's past, when wealthy families such as the Priulis dominated Mediterranean maritime trade and used their palaces not only as residences but as headquarters for family business interests. Tall windows provide views of <I>Rio de l'Osmarin</I> canal, in front of the Hotel allows small pets only.

Driving Directions:
From Marco Polo Airport:
From the airport, visitors go by water or by land across the lagoon to historical Venice. By water, the fastest and most expensive way is by water taxi. Less expensive and slower is a boat that stops at other islands in the lagoon and terminates adjacent to St. Mark's Square in St. Mark's Basin, which is just a few yards from the eastern end of the Grand Canal. By land there are taxis and buses that go from the airport to Piazzale Roma, the historical center's land-transportation terminus near the train station (Stazione Ferroviaria). From Piazzale Roma (and from the train station on the opposite side of Grand Canal), public waterbuses (vaporetti) go to various stops around the city along the Grand Canal and other major waterways. More expensive water taxis go from Piazzale Roma and the train station more directly to, or near, hotels via smaller canals.

The St. Mark's Basin waterbus stop nearest the hotel is San Zaccaria, which located a few yards away. Guests must ask for directions to a street near the docks called Sotoportego San Zaccaria. Walk straight on that street away from the water to a square called Campo San Zaccaria. Pass through the square to the end and turn left. Turn right at the first street (Campo San Provolo) and proceed until the street bears right and becomes Fondamenta de l'Osmarin, which borders a small canal. Halfway down the street, cross a bridge on the left (Ponte del Diavolo) toward a terra- cotta-colored building with a facade of stone arches, columns, and balconies. That building is the hotel's palazzo section, where the reception desk is located. The hotel does not display a sign, but the first door on the left in the narrow passage leading away from the bridge is the hotel's entrance.
