From romantic, crumbling palazzo overlooking the Grand Canal to private island hotels; discover the best Venice hotels with Kuoni
Holidays in Venice are as much about where you stay as what you do. Its famous, crumbling palazzo and centuries-old masserie seem to rise out of lagoon-like waterways, interspersed between restaurants, museums, shops and historical sites. While most of our handpicked hotels are positioned by the water (Sina Palazzo Sant'angelo even has its own pier), others – like Hotel Concordia – are situated directly on St Mark’s Square, or away from the crowds; San Clemente Palace Kempinski sits on its own private island just a 10-minute boat ride to the city. Ask us when the best time to go is and we’ll tell you all year. Our hotels are just as wonderful in autumn, winter and spring, when you can stay cosy and warm in romantic lounges overlooking the Grand Canal, as they are in summer, when leafy terraces beckon al fresco dinners and places like Belmond Hotel Cipriani become the go-to destination for an afternoon lying by the pool – it’s one of the few in Venice to have one.
