Hotel Abbazia Venice Italy receives its name from the fact that is is located within a restored monastery, just 100 meters from S. Lucia train station, within Cannaregio sestiere.
Before being renovated into a three star hotel, the Monastery of Venice’s Discalced Carmelite Friars had always been known as a place of hospitality and tradition.

After years of renovation, the hospitality is also elevated by the addition of all modern comforts, to make your stay an enjoyable one.
There are many features that have remained from the monastery period, including a terrazzo floor sitting room that once was an ancient place of reflection, today an important place to enjoy time together in a bar setting, with wireless broadband available.
The relaxing environment and romantic atmosphere of the hotel extends also to the courtyard, which features a skillfully restored garden. There is also a delightful internal garden, equipped with easy chair, available during the summer months as a place to enjoy your breakfast in the shade of the gazebo.
Despite this ancient heritage, the hotel rooms feature all the modern comforts you’d expect from a three star hotel, ranging from minibars to air conditioning/heating, and from telephones to ADSL internet access and satellite TVs.
All in all, you can choose from a selection of 50 guest rooms and suites, with available types being:
