A hotel that was close to the main sights of Venice, and yet was quiet and away from the crowds. Very authentic boutique type place. An amazingly beautiful residence turned small hotel. The staff was extremely helpful while we were there as well as prior to us checking in. The hotel staff assisted us in making dinner reservations before we arrived in Venice and arranged for a luggage porter to assist us when we departed. We did not have to worry about anything while we were there; very appreciative of the service we received. Breakfast and tea in the garden was so lovely. The garden area was delightful for breakfast and afternoon breaks. Palazzo Abedessa was the perfect choice. We highly recommend this place.
