In a 16th-century palazzo behind the Ca' d'Oro, it's every bit as fancy as the Grand Canal hotels, but thanks to its location, on a secondary canal, costs less. There's a beautiful garden—a rare privilege in Venice—and historical features such as 17th-century frescoed ceilings and 18th-century furniture. Damask walls, Murano glass lamps, and antique furnishings are par for the course, though it's worth upgrading—as entry level rooms are small.
