Individual ratings for Madama Garden Retreat


This is a quiet location in the authentic district of Canareggio, directly next to the historic Chiodo bridge. The hotel has its own private dock and is easy to reach by water taxi. The nearest vaporetto station on Canal Grande is “Ca d’Oro.”


Inspired by the notes from the walk with Marco Polo described in the book “The invisible Cities” by Italo Calvino. History re-imagined – everything is well-appointed, shining with bold colors and radiating a modern sense of comfort.


Cosy parlour with honesty bar, lush garden and private dock at the hotel.


Nicely prepared breakfast with home-made jams – served directly at the table. There is no in-house restaurant. A small restaurant within walking distance that we recommend: Vini da Gigio – excellent fish and game cuisine and a lovely wine list.


8 generously proportioned modern apartments (55 to 65 sqm), tastefully decorated with fanciful wallpapers by Arte, lights by Moooi, and rare textiles by Rubelli and Casamance. Each is equipped with a Nespresso coffee machine, a kitchenette, and an elegant marble bath with shower. Some have a beautiful view of the canal and the private garden.


Committed, helpful and always upbeat.

Madama Garden Retreat Hotel, Venezia

The canals, gondolas, opulent palazzi and, of course, the fine food—there are so many reasons for visiting “La Serenissima” more than once. With its morbid beauty, the lagoon city is considered one of the most romantic destinations in Europe. Far from the well-trodden tourist trails, in the district of Canareggio – between the two lateral canals Rio da Noale and Rio San Felice – lies the intimate boutique hotel Madama Garden Retreat. The rooms are airy, colourful, and modern, designed with attention to detail, using select fabrics and featuring stylish marble baths that are in perfect working order. The beds are particularly comfortable, and the rich breakfast is served in the romantic garden, weather permitting. Children are welcome above the age of 15.

Price range €€
The pretty garden including an arbour where you can take your breakfast on sunny days.
