The interiors, spacious and elegant, have period furnishings and exquisite Murano glass, in an ambiance typical of the great Venetian residences. Guests from all over the world have stayed here, including Franz Kafka. Polichrome marble adorns the walls and floors of the halls and bar where you can sip not only the typical 'Spritz' but specialty cocktails like the Gabrielli, the Bellini or the Rossini. On summer days the courtyard in flower is the ideal place to have breakfast or dine by candlelight. In another courtyard is a beautiful well, probably from the late Byzantine era. On the hotel's terrace, from a comfortable chaise longue, you can enjoy a spectacular view of the lagoon. But the real jewel of the Hotel Gabrielli Sandwirth is its enchanting garden populated by palms, roses, wisteria pergolas, aquatic plants in antique stone basins, all dominated by two majestic cedars of Lebanon. The hotel also provides meeting rooms (max 70 people) and is equipped with a water entrance. The Hotel Gabrielli Sandwirth, a XIV century palazzo, one of the most exclusive hotels in Venice, is run by the Perkhofer family who can boast of 150 years in the hotelkeeping trade.

A tax has been imposed by the city for stays beginning 1 October 2012, and will be collected directly at the property. The tax ranges from EUR 1 to EUR 5 per person, per night.

For additional details on this tax please check with the hotel property at check-in.

Dirty Disgusting Hotel

We selected this hotel due to the location and the 4 Star rating. This was NOT a 4 Star hotel and should be reclassified on the Orbitz website. This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Small dirty rooms. Dangerous broken stairs in the halls. No water pressure to take any kind of shower. BLACK MOLD on the ceilings and walls in the bathroom. The air conditioning did not cool the room below 85F, if that. There was a Black and white tiny television hanging from the ceiling. I haven't seen a black and white tv since the 1970's. Just a dirty, disgusting hotel. Nothing good to say about our stay in this hotel. If we had not prepaid, we would have stayed elsewhere after seeing the rooms. Very disappointed. I do not recommend this hotel.

Excellent Location, Tiny Room!

The location was perfect, just across the street from one of the public boat transportation stops. Easy walk to all the sights. My room was VERY small, but who wants to stay in their room when you're in Venice?

Stay away from the restaurants that look like tourist "hot spots". Instead, choose a restaurant that's just off one of the main squares, I promise you won't be disappointed. We tended to stick to restaurants that were small and full of Italians...always a good sign!

Peaceful Oasis in a sea of tourists

Old fashioned elegance is clearly visible in the main rooms and gardens of this historic hotel but it has seen better days (as has much of Venice!) Location is very convenient to 2 "water bus" stops and you can also walk down the wide street(Rio degli Schiavoni) in front to St. Marks in about 10 minutes. Staff is gracious and most have clearly been there a long time. The owners are also very much in evidence at mealtimes. The church where Vivaldi was baptized is right behind the hotel and is still a parish church. The Scuola Grande of San Rocco, filled with works by local boy Tintoretto, is right down the street. (We noticed flocks of tourists from the cruise boats, with their guide holding some pendant aloft to keep everyone together, walking by the front of the hotel from the vaporetto stop to San Rocco. It was nice not to be part of the mob scene!) Weekend (Sat. thru Sun. afternoon) was extremely crowded in Venice, even in the Spring. Later on Sunday and the rest of the week it was very serene at least when we were there. The hotel was always peaceful even when there were hords outside.

"First time traveler in Venice. "

The hotel was very old and I'm not use to old hotels. The bathroom was very dim and not enough lighting and the wood floors also creeked. Everything in the room was out dated. TV, telephone, beds, etc......but it's Venice!! The hotel staff was friendly though.
