Metropole

Riva degli Schiavoni, Castello 4149, Venice, Veneto, 30122, Italy

Atmosphere prevails in this labyrinth of intimate, opulent spaces featuring classic Venetian decor combined with exotic Eastern influences: the owner—a lifelong collector of unusual objects—fills common areas and the sumptuously appointed guest rooms with an assortment of antiques and curiosities. The best rooms are up on the roof, where there are also two spacious terraces. Suites feature sparkling mosaic sunken baths, Fortuny fabrics, and other notable architectural details.

PROS

  • hotel harkens back to a gracious Venice of times past
  • fine bar (great martinis!)
  • good but expensive restaurant

CONS

  • one of the most densely touristed locations in the city, although noise is not a serious problem
  • rooms with views are considerably more expensive, although the views are spectacular
