Hotel ai Mori d'Oriente

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Atmospheric location overlooking Venice’s Sensa canal
  • In a 15th-century palazzo with Byzantine décor
  • Bedrooms that are large for Venice
  • Sit on the canalside terrace with a drink from the bar


Housed in a 15th-century palazzo, the Hotel Ai Mori d'Oriente overlooks the Sensa canal. Once home to a Moorish family, it still has Byzantine influences throughout, from exotic lanterns to brightly patterned fabrics. Flower-filled window boxes and wrought-iron balconies add a Venetian touch.

The hotel is in the Cannaregio quarter, which is a "great place to taste local life", according to The Guardian. The main street is the longest in Venice, and is lined with fruit and vegetable stalls, gelaterias and bakeries. The Grand Canal is 500 metres away, while the Rialto Bridge and St Mark's Square are both about 20 minutes away by water bus.

You can have a drink on the canalside terrace, served from the walnut-panelled American bar, or relax with a book in the reading room, which still has its original Venetian terrazzo flooring. There's also an elegant breakfast room, where a buffet is served each morning.

Classic rooms are large for Venice and are decorated in Venetian-Moorish style, with Italian marble bathrooms. For canal views, opt for a Deluxe room -- these also come with an iPod docking station -- or for a private balcony, choose a Junior Suite, which can sleep up to four people.
