With its exotic, spice-route vibe and burnished colour palate of gold, bronze and old grey, the Aqua Palace is a heady mixture of modern amenities and Eastern romance. Suites ‘interpret’ the distant past of Marco Polo, and with only 25 of them you can expect aristocratic proportions: acres of weighty fabric and bathrooms marbled within an inch of their lives. Complete with its own private gondola pier, this is the hotel for love birds.
Rooms at the Aqua Palace Hotel include air conditioning, a minibar, and a private bathroom. Some rooms have views of the Rio della Guerra canal.
The property has a 24-hour reception and bar. There is also a breakfast room and lounge area overlooking the canal.
The hotel is 3 minutes’ walk from Piazza San Marco and a 5-minute walk from the Rialto Bridge.
