The Savoia & Jolanda is a traditional upscale Venetian hotel where rooms
are likely to have wood-beamed ceilings, Murano glass light fixtures,
and--if you've sprung for a deluxe room or junior suite--panoramic views
of the Isola di San Giorgio Maggiore and the Venetian Lagoon.

In the lower close-up image, you can see the Hotel
Savoia & Jolanda behind the words "Sestiere Castello." The hotel has
a large covered restaurant-café on the
promenade. (The five-star Hotel Danieli is immediately to the left
of the Savoia & Jolanda.)
