Boscolo Hotel Bellini

This hotel is at the foot of the Scalzi Bridge, spanning the Grand Canal. A huge, pale-blue chandelier of Murano glass is suspended over the lobby, which has a gleaming marble floor of green and cream. Freshly cut flowers are artfully arranged. The hotel’s aristocratic past, choice location in the Cannaregio district, and proximity to the train station make it popular with sophisticated travelers from Europe and the United States.

Amenity highlights: Created from two 17th-century homes, the hotel features a rooftop terrace with views of the Grand Canal, Scalzi Bridge, and the copper dome of the S. Croce Church. The breakfast room has sliding-glass panels that open to a garden, where guests can enjoy their meal in summer.

Insider tip: The hotel is less than a 10-minute walk from the Ghetto, the Jewish quarter established in the 16th century. A maze of narrow streets with five historic synagogues and a museum, the Ghetto is a quiet place for strolling, contemplation, and escaping the crowds.

Rental cars and buses travel from the airport to the Piazzale Roma. From the Piazzale Roma, guests can take a vaporetto (water bus) across the lagoon to the train-station stop, about a two-minute walk from the hotel.
The vaporetto (water-bus) system connects the major islands of the lagoon (Murano, Burano, the Lido, and Torcello) with the historic center of Venice. Vaporetti 1 and 82 travel the Grand Canal from Piazzale di Roma to St Mark’s Square. Beyond water travel, walking is an easy way to explore Venice. The historic center measures just 8 square km (3 square miles). The hotel can also order water taxis on request.
