Hotel Saturnia

Venice, Italy

Hotel Saturnia is a delightful four-star hotel in the heart of Venice. It is ideally located close to many of the major historic sites and is about a five minute walk from Piazza San Marco. The medieval-inspired reception area leads to a Romanesque-style lounge with carved ceiling, bottle-glass windows, and antique chandeliers. The hotel, which has been in the same family for four generations, occupies a converted 14th-century palazzo. Guest rooms are decorated with simplicity and Venetian taste and vary in size and décor. Each offers a television, a mini-bar, a safe, individually-controlled air conditioning, and Internet access. There is also a first class restaurant on-site, and the hotel staff is friendly and helpful.
