A former 17th century palazzo, the Hotel Monaco and Grand Canal is the pinnacle of Venetian splendour. Tucked away down a small calle away from the crowds of the surrounding piazzas, this impressive building is somehow central and secluded all at once. The property spills out over three buildings all on the very edge of the Grand Canal. The interiors are very much an homage to their origins with 17th century columns and arched ceilings dominating each room, and the softly lit hallways are lined with local works of art. Guest rooms have been refurbished in recent years and each has an individual style with marble bathrooms, velvet drapes and large arched windows.
Piazza San Marco is just a short distance away where you'll find the city's most famous landmarks and just around the corner from here is the famous Harry's Bar where the bellini was invented. You don't have to wander far from the hotel to find some of the best cuisine Venice has to offer - the Grand Canal restaurant located within the hotel has an impeccable team of chefs who work to create a mix of elegantly modern and traditional dishes using fresh fish from the Adriatic sea complemented by local wines.
