The hotel’s building is a historical palazzo of the wealthy Dandolo family, and also the first public ‘ridotto’ from 1638 onwards.
‘Ridotto’ was a place where nobility, shoulder to shoulder with international adventurers and travelers gathered to gamble their fortunes, which was a past time that even the famous Venetian adventurer, Giacomo Casanova, himself took part in.
Despite being an ancient palace, renovations thoughout the year have kept the services and facilities very modern, suitable for a four star accommodation in an international city such as Venice.

Your stay is also enhanced by the hotel’s restaurant, ‘Grand Canal Restaurant’, which serves a menu constructed from Venetian specialties, where fresh seafood and vegetables from the Lagoon islands are a central ingredient.
