An excellent little 3star boutiquestyle hotel with only 8 rooms the Vecellio Hotel stands overlooking the Lagoon towards the islands of Murano Burano and St Michele. Having only opened in 2005 and run by a trueblooded Venetian Matteo always ready to recommend some local and inexpensive restaurants the hotel has paid particular attention to detail in the furnishings and decor and prides itself on its location being no more than a 15 minute walk from the beautiful Rialto Bridge and St. Marks Square. However if guests prefer to use the waterbus vaporetto then the stop is literally outside the hotels front door guests should also note there is a direct waterbus link to Marco Polo airport from outside the hotel. All rooms are equipped with ensuite facilities individually activated climate control minibar cable TV internet access and telephone. Guests at the Vecellio are sure to appreciate that Matteo is nearly always on hand to assist guests with suggestions as to places to visit restaurants to experience and bars to enjoy! Privately owned and proudly run the Vecellio Hotel is a little gem of a hotel slightly off the wellworn tourist track and well worth a visit. The hotels superior service is reflected in the ratings posted on popular webbased travel guides.
