You will live a holiday with friends, spoiled and pampered in a thousand ways. Ask our concierge which are the most beautiful Piazzas to visit, or discover the most intimate secrets of the city by having a chat with Gian Luca: he will guide you through the real Venice and its treasures, for a holiday that's truly tailored to your taste. 24/7 Concierge service, Breakfast until late, a bar at your disposal, and a team offering you attentive, personal service. Brunches, an in-house library, and so much more. Corte di Gabriela is more than a boutique hotel. It is a buén retiro: your comforting, intimate hideaway. You, a traveler passing by for a visit to the most beautiful carnival in the world, or an aficionado of the City of Water.
Corte di Gabriela was born after the skillful restoration of what was once a palace (Palazzo) belonging to a wealthy family of Venetian lawyers. Perhaps it is precisely for this reason that, more than a boutique hotel, our Corte reminds of a private house in which to return every evening with joy. Gian Luca, owner of the building since 2012 and the true soul of the house, wanted to insert some elements of contemporary design of absolute value in this ancient and aristocratic context, to create a harmonious dialogue between the past and modernity. Philippe Starck, Mises Van der Rohe, Kartell, Flos, Vitra, Ingo Mauer, Alivar are just some of the names behind the pieces of furniture you will find in each room, at Hotel Corte di Gabriela. The result is a perfect combination of modern lamps made of technological materials, and solid wood elements, wrought gold leaf iron gates, and chaise longues in light leather and chromed metal, for a more futuristic and luxurious effect.
Our Wi-Fi is free-of-charge and extremely fast throughout the hotel, thanks to the optical fiber. Corte di Gabriela offers what can only be described as a real digital flagship in the heart of Venice: separate control units for each floor.
The Corte di Gabriela morning buffet is always available for you, from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM in the morning, and even later. Treat yourself to a sin of gluttony, be it sweet or savory. Your breakfast choice is always different, depending on the seasons and the products and, above all, on the imagination of our director-chef Gian Luca. Any particular wishes? Feel free to ask for what you want: Gian Luca will prepare it especially for you. A crêpe with homemade jam, or with a spread of the always magnificent Nutella. A cake to celebrate your special moment. Omelets with vegetables and freshly picked herbs. Or maybe a couple of perfectly scrambled eggs, topped with melting Lardo. For the healthiest of you, we provide a wide selection of refined fresh fruit, excellent artisanal yogurts and, upon request, gluten-free products. Top it all off with a cup of hot coffee, prepared for us in the ancient Girani roasting house, rigorously served at the table directly from the steaming moka. An ancient flavor, a slow and deeply Italian ritual.
After a long day spent strolling through museums and Calles, come and take a moment for yourself with a drink, in the shade of our wisteria. Have a chat with our other guests at one of our courtyard tables, or spend an hour reading in our Noble Salon–and maybe have a glass of cognac, or a cup of herbal tea. It's the perfect way to relax. Buoy your spirit with the warm colors of the furnishings, with the wood of Venetian beams and floors, and our grand piano. Take advantage of our selection of wines and spirits, in an atmosphere so enveloping that it becomes unforgettable.
Our front desk is open all day, from 7:30 AM to 10:30 PM. Ask our experienced staff for everything you need. We will always be happy to assist you in booking taxis, transfers, train tickets, guided tours, or to recommend the best restaurants in Venice, the most acclaimed bars, the most interesting shows. Our night porter service will do the same, always putting themselves at your complete disposal with a smile.
