It is a 15th century palazzo which is right at the Canale Grande. It is a three star superior hotel. It had once nice paintings on its walls, which is why it is called this way. Even though the building has history, it is fully refurbished. There is a cafeteria right in front of the hotel on the waterfront.
The hotel is located right at the entrance of Venice, coming from the main land, right next to Piazzale Roma and across the Railway station Santa Lucia. It is an ideal place for starting to explore Venice right from the entrance. Very close by is the big public park Giardino Papadopoli with one of the scarce playgrounds for kids. Also very close by is the museum Ca’ Pesaro and the famous Basilica del Frari.
The furniture is in a traditional Venetian style, the baths are in marble. The rooms either overlook the streets on the inland or the Canal, so make sure to reserve what you want, however bear the price difference into mind.
