Summary

A slice of modernism in classic Venice

About

History & culture | Summer

Location

Hotel L’Orologio enjoys a privileged, central position on the Grand Canal, just a short walk from the Rialto Bridge. As such, it’s only a few steps to Piazza San Marco’s famous sights, the operas of La Fenice and the Venezia-Santa Lucia train station. That said, be sure to find some time in Venice to relax and imbibe the atmosphere, perhaps at one of its many canal-side or piazza-facing cafés. Of course, you can’t go wrong with a run out on a gondola.

Accommodation

While the hotel marries a heritage location with contemporary style, its theme – inspired by the world of collectible watches – is the facet that stands out. It’s subtlety done too, adding a true sense of class with names such as Rolex and Patek Philippe represented. As such, all rooms feature a decidedly modern style with minimalist sensibilities realised in bold splashes of colour, innovative artwork and high quality woods and leathers. Authentic beamed ceilings add a touch of warmth, as do the marble bathrooms. Upgrade for views of the hotel’s famous neighbour – the Grand Canal – while, for longer stays, consider an apartment, which mixes in a more traditional style. 

Dining

The hotel’s signature L’O Bar is a sophisticated lounge where drinks are served on an elegant stone counter and patrons can relax on vintage leather armchairs. Given its setting, oversized windows make the most of views over the Grand Canal to the waters of the lagoon beyond. You’ll be able to enjoy a wide selection of sweet and savoury snacks throughout the day, mixing traditional Venetian cuisine with more standard fare such as sandwiches and salads. It’s all prepared with fresh, high-quality ingredients. Breakfasts come in the form of a continental and American buffet, replete with fresh, organic produce. 

Facilities

At L’Orologio, you’ll be welcomed by a large open foyer where vintage leather sofas and a large fireplace invite you to relax. And, while the L’O Bar offers an excellent spot to enjoy an aperitif drink, you might prefer the view from the fourth floor terrace. Enjoy a fine wine – or your meal – in the sun with views over the Venetian architecture. Lastly, although you might prefer to be out exploring with so many of the city’s attractions on your doorstep, there’s also complimentary WiFi throughout.
