The Best Luxury Hotels in Venice

Luxury hotels in Venice abound yet many disappoint. A few however epitomize the glamour, history and opulence of Venice.

I have selected the five hotels that I truly believe to be exceptional.  All these hotels seem to capture the elegance of Venice Italy.

In most of these hotels the centuries of Venetian history can be felt in every room, in every corner.  I believe these to be the finest hotels in Venice. A few are among the best in the world...

Luna Hotel Baglioni

Luna Hotel Baglioni

Beautifully restored the Luna Hotel Baglioni is magnificently opulent, perfectly located and ideal for a romantic stay in Venice. Try to book one of the luxury junior suites as the double rooms can be a little small. The Canova restaurant is a very good place to try local cuisine at its best. This is perhaps the best of the luxury hotels in Venice - click here for more photos, reviews and booking advice.

Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa

Bauer Palladio Venice Italy

The Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa is in my opinion the second best of all the luxury hotels in Venice. The service is impeccable, the hotel immaculate and the location is superb. What could be better than staying on magical Giudecca Island in a restored 16th century convent designed by the greatest architect the Veneto has ever produced –Andrea Palladio.

Metropole Hotel in Venice

Metropole hotel in Venice

The Metropole Hotel is right in the heart of Venice and just off St Marks Square. This is a hotel that is impossible to fault; everything about the Metropole hotel is perfect. The restaurant is superb and the breakfast is the best you will get in Venice. Make sure you ask for a room with a lagoon view, though it may cost a little more it is worth it.

The Hotel Cipriani

Orient Express Hotel in Venice

Certainly the most exclusive luxury hotel in Venice. The hotel is part of the Orient Express Hotel Group, the same lot who run the exclusive Orient Express train. If you can afford it stay in the magnificent Dogaressa Suite, with quite lovely views of St. Mark's square. Sadly this suite is only for the truly discerning and the truly rich;  although lovely it's way out of my league. Click here for more information and photos.

The Hotel Danieli

Hotel Danieli Venice

The Hotel Danieli is magnificent and not simply a place to stay but an experience you'll never forget. The sumptuous elegance of this 14th century palace is apparent from the moment you enter the lobby -pictured above. Make no mistake this is a fabulous hotel and perhaps the most romantic hotel in Venice. Read other reviews and see more photos of the hotel here.
