Aman Canal Grande Hotel, Venice
Located on the Canal side within the Palazzo Papadopoli in the San Polo district, the Aman Canal Grande Venice is majestically located and is within walking distance of the world famous Rialto Bridge.
The hotel is opulently decorated with luxurious marble, stonework and art pieces including paintings, frescoes and reliefs taking inspiration from the surrounding architecture and history, with parts of the building dating back to the 16th century. In the 19th century the building was reinvented by Michalangelo Guggenheim a specialist in Neo-renaissance and Rococo styles, who made the building one of the best examples of these styles in Venice, and also created the unusual feature of Venetian gardens which are very rare within the city.
Guests often arrive at the hotel by boat, docking virtually straight into the reception hall. With regard to features the hotel is modestly proportioned with 24 rooms, but not light on services with a dining room specialising in native Italian and Far-Eastern cuisine. The restaurant and bar overlook the Grand Canal, and the hotel houses a beautiful roof terrace, garden terrace and private garden as well as spa and fitness facilities.
The hotel represents genuinely luxury and the décor simultaneously screams elegance and history, and with such rich culture on the doorstep to go and explore by foot and by boat, the Aman Canal Grande Venice is ideally located.
