One of the Few All Non-Smoking Hotels in Venice
Hotel Violino d'Oro is a small boutique hotel that was originally "Palazzo Barozzi". It is located at a tiny campiello near the San Moise Church. Its location is on the main shopping "drag" from San Marco to the Accademia.
It is newly renovated, but its 18th-century Venetian style makes it seem antique. The rooms are compact, but not tiny. There are Murano chandeliers on the ceilings, antique furniture, excellent bathrooms, and very firm beds. Our room was a corner room and had three huge windows that looked out over the small canal and the gondolier station.
All rooms are furnished with shower or bath, direct telephone, individually controlled air conditioning, mini-bar, wire broadcasting and satellite TV. The hotel has a bar, concierge, tour desk, 24-hour room service, laundry service, babysitting service, and lovely breakfast room.
We stayed for four nights and really enjoyed the hospitality, the location, the non smoking feature, the breakfast room and the food (included in the price of room), & the beautiful corner room.
Unique Quality: Just a few steps from San Marco Square, yet tucked away in a small campiello, The Hotel Violino d' Oro is unique. The rooms have very tall ceilings with white wood trim; Murano chandeliers, and lovely decorative touches (our room had dark teal blue and a small amount of gold in the drapes over white sheers. Wooden European shutters to keep out noise and the cold/heat worked effectively.
From our three windows, we could see the small Rio San Moise canal, a bridge, and the small campiello. The furniture was green antique with gold headboard, a lovely wardrobe, two end tables, a desk/refrigerator with marble tops on tables and desk. Also, there was a beautiful gold settee.
The hotel employees were quite helpful, making many reservations for us. But the best feature was that the entire hotel was NON SMOKING.
