Address Lista di Spagna 121 - 30121


60 rooms furnished to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. All of them have minibar, shower, hair drier, air conditioning adjustable from the room, colour TV. A couple of rooms have a view over the Canal Grande, the rest facing Lista di Spagna or our inner “corti” (“Corte” in Venetian language means a quiet courtyard usually left among the buildings to separate them). In the morning a rich open buffet welcomes our guest in the breakfast hall on the ground floor. The hotel is located in the “sestiere of Cannaregio” , its name coming from the cane fields that once grew there. More precisely in Lista di Spagna. The name “Lista” in the ancient Venetian language was given to zones not subject to the Venetian Republic domain, albeit being in the city, to get into which a visa was mandatory. This area, stretching from the Scalzi church to the church of San Geremia, belonged to the Spanish crown, and housed its embassy. There is a spacious breakfast room on the ground floor. Our hotel was the annex of the latter, which stood a few meters ahead, towards palazzo Labia (beautiful Venetian palace, which houses the offices of the national Italian television, RAI). The annex became a hotel in 1881. It has been adapted to modern safety and quality standards in the last years. The hotel has a reception service open 24 hours a day. Its professional staff can advise guests on the best way to immerge themselves in the city’s atmosphere, with suggestions on walks, tours and typical restaurants, which will make their stay in Venice most pleasing.
