Lonely Planet review
Common spaces have uncommon appeal at this converted Carmelite retreat. The dining hall has been converted into a heavenly lobby-bar, and the love seats in the garden are so serene, you’d never guess you were just around the corner from the train station (great for late arrivals). Rooms are comfortable and quiet, featuring striped-brocade, Venetian-gone-corporate decor.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Abbazia and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Sestiere di Cannaregio.
