Having spent several years searching for their ideal property, the owners have discovered the bewitching Hotel Heureka.
This hidden gem in the crown of Venice’s beautiful hotels lies in the heart and history of Cannaregio, overlooking the tranquillity of the Madonna dell’Orto canal and spectacular secular gardens.
Before the doors of this exquisite hotel opened in October 2017, after a two-year refurbishment, it would have been an entrance you might have overlooked or missed whilst meandering the quiet streets of Cannaregio, to find a sunny spot for lunch along the still Venetian backwaters in a local bacaro.
Contemporary design, striking architecture, unique furnishings, sumptuous fabrics and quirky touches catch your eye throughout the building. With its 10 individually styled rooms, which are a mix of deluxe doubles and suites, the hotel has a distinct look that is all its own.
The hallmarks are the essential four-poster beds, lavish Lacroix textile-drops as bed-heads, double Rubelli brocade silks at the windows, incredible scape lamps, designer bathrooms with grand freestanding baths, and Julian Khol commissioned art, each room is a haven in which to escape and unwind.
This palazzo, in which Hotel Heureka makes its home, dates to the 16th Century and the sympathetic restoration now sees a smooth overlap between the architectural grandeur of the past and contemporary quirkiness of today.
Outside, Hotel Heureka hides a true treasure, in the form of a spacious secret garden; an oasis of tranquillity.
By day, the garden is the perfect place to relax under the leafy canopy of the trees, and at night, it’s an enchanting spot in which to while away an evening under a blanket of stars.
Guests at Hotel Heureka will be invited to discover the Little Black Book of Secrets, exclusively prepared for a bespoke Venetian experience.
This 4 stars boutique hotel is situated in one of the liveliest and vibrant districts in the city, in the north-western Sestriere of Cannaregio. A walk along these quiet canals is an immersion into the very soul of Venice.
