The 3-star Hotel Abbazia is part of a historic religious residence of Venice that combines hospitality with modern comforts, offering an excellent opportunity to experience the city's artistic and cultural attractions and entertainment to the full.
Hotel Abbazia, a fascinating period residence in the center of Venice just a stone's throw from the vaporetti and Santa Lucia train station, has transformed the ancient refectoryof the Discalced Carmelite Brothers into an elegant sitting room with bar where you can settle in with a good book, drink an aperitif in company or connect to the Internet with free Wi-Fi access.
A careful restoration of this room maintained its original design, characterized by a typical, late 19th-century Venetian terrazzo floor that makes, like then, an important place to come together and enjoy each other's company.
There is also a delightful internal garden, where you will be able to relax on comfortable easy chairs or, during the summer, enjoy breakfast in the shade of the gazebo.
The sitting room contains the original wood pulpit from which the monks read the bible while eating their meals and a commemorative plaque in honor of Pope Pius X, evidence of the Pope's frequent visits to this refectory when he was the patriarch of Venice at the end of the 19th century.
