With Murano chandeliers and gilded accents, the AD Place Venice is a hotel that "goes for romantic high drama", says Lonely Planet. An inconspicuous doorway hides funky interiors, where baroque glamour is mixed with bright, modern shades -- guests are greeted with drapes, storm lanterns and an enormous crimson chandelier. It all makes for a dreamy and intimate escape.

The hotel is a boutique gem, with a great location, its own landing jetty for gondola trips and boat transfers, and a superb rooftop terrace. You'll be in the famed San Marco district on the narrow canal -- listen out for the singing gondoliers if you stay in a canal-side room -- and two minutes on foot from the Grand Canal. St. Mark’s Cathedral, the Rialto Bridge and the Palazzo Ducale (Doge’s Palace), are all within 10 minutes' walk. Guests of the hotel can take a free return trip to Murano Island, famous for its glass factory.

Surrounded by terracotta-tiled roofs and with far-reaching city views, the hotel's roof terrace is a romantic spot for breakfast or pre-dinner drinks. Breakfast is also served in the little breakfast room, or you can opt for breakfast in bed. There's no on-site restaurant, but there is a small, well-stocked bar, and a coffee machine provides free drinks all day long.

There are only 12 rooms, all finished with the same theatrical flair as the public rooms -- some have 4-poster beds -- and all are air-conditioned. Space is a little tight in the most basic rooms, but the suites will comfortably sleep up to four people. Guests can immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of Venice with a canal-facing room; the smaller rooms to the rear are quieter. The hotel doesn't have a lift and some rooms are up several flights of stairs, so request a room on the ground floor if you have mobility requirements.
