Celebrate the art of glass at LaGare Hotel, Venice

Luxury-Hotel-Venice-Italy-06

The LaGare Hotel Venezia hotel in Venice boasts a fabulous location on the Island of Murano, which has been a renowned glass making centre for centuries and the hotel building is itself an old glass factory.

The views from the windows of the hotels’ 118 rooms attest to its exceptional location: magnificent stretches of water can be glimpsed beyond the Grand Canal, while many of the island’s famous gardens and flowers add to the gentle charm of the setting.

The luxury hotel is located in an old glass factory dating back to the 14th century. After undergoing complete refurbishment, the building now features a subtle blend of art and design.  Elegant furnishings are enhanced by Venini glass lighting fixtures, while the common areas feature a permanent exhibition of museum works and objects designed by Murano’s famous glass artist. Everything in the hotel reflects the splendor of this island, which is a rare jewel in Italy’s splendid heritage. The former glass-works’ façade has been preserved and the hotel walls subtly evoke the city’s architecture.  The library features a selection of books for those who seek to learn more about the island’s prestigious craft. Of course, it goes without saying that the hotel’s Memorable Moment consists of a private guided tour of one of the neighboring glass factories.

The hotel has an elegant restaurant with a bar, overlooking a typical Venetian courtyard. Here you can treat yourself to the “Spritz”, a traditional aperitif served at the hotel’s café “Il Crotilletto”, before prolonging the pleasure at the restaurant which specializes in local dishes and seafood cuisine.

The luxury Italian hotel is a real treasure trove floating on the Venetian lagoon. Its contemporary and elegant style will make you fall in love.

The luxury hotel in Venice is a member of the MGallery Collection, a group of unique boutique hotels from around the globe.
