  • Update: The Hotel Gabrielli is closed for renovation until 2023.


The four-star Hotel Gabrielli (a,k.a. the Gabrielli Sandwirth) is just beyond the crush of luxury hotels on the Riva degli Schiavoni. Its 14th Century Venetian Gothic palazzo faces the St. Mark's Basin waterfront, about 10 minutes on foot from the Piazza San Marco.

 (Trivia note: The Gabrielli was featured in a silly but enjoyable 1992 movie, Blame It on the Bellboy, which starred Richard Griffiths, Dudley Moore, and Bronson Pinchot.)

How to reach the Hotel Gabrielli from the Arsenale airport-boat stop (Alilaguna Linea Blu):
