Dating back to the 15th century, this beautifully restored former palace is located within easy reach of the sights of Venice, while also providing a relaxing and serene escape in its picturesque gardens and opulent rooms.

Situated on the San Trovaso canal, Hotel Nani Mocenigo Palace is housed in a 15th century building which boasts Murano chandeliers, 19th century frescoes and original floors. A leafy courtyard and gardens offer a tranquil spot to sit and relax after a day of sightseeing, away from the bustle yet within a 15-minute walk of the city’s main sights.

Bedroooms at the Hotel Nani Mocenigo Palace are luxuriously appointed, with gilt details, opulent fabric wall coverings and antique furniture. Despite their historic decor, the rooms and suites boast complimentary wifi, flat-screen televisions, minibars and tea and coffee making facilities to bring the 21st century to this 15th century property. 

The hotel is surrounded by a wealth of restaurants and bars, including many popular neighbourhood haunts that offer a taste of Venice away from the more well-trodden streets around San Marco and the Rialto. It also features its own delightful cafe, Vitraria Caffè, serving lighter dishes, coffee and aperitifs in the private garden or elegant lounge for lunch and dinner while the breakfast buffet is a feast of pastries and fruits.

Though tucked away in a quieter residential neighbourhood, Hotel Nani Mocenigo Palace is just a 15-minute walk from the Piazza San Marco and 20-minutes to the Rialto Bridge. It lies in the Sestiere di Dorsoduro, also home to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute and the Gallerie dell’Accademia.

Rooms are individually designed yet all share the same attention to detail in the ornate lighting, grand furniture and elaborate wall coverings. The spacious suites can sleep up to four people with a sofa bed in the sitting room while a Family Room features two bedrooms, both of which can accommodate three people, and a more pared back yet elegant design.


Children are welcome at Hotel Nani Mocenigo Palace and can be accommodated in extra beds or sofa beds in all but the Basic, Classic and Superior Rooms. The Family Room is ideal for larger families.


While the hotel’s cafe offers lighter meals, drinks and aperitifs, its close proximity to many local restaurants and bars makes it an ideal base from which to explore the neighbourhood dining options that offer an authentic taste of Venetian cuisine and beyond. Enjoy a negroni in the tranquil surrounds of the courtyard garden before strolling out into the streets to discover the popular restaurants and cafes of the district.


The sights, sounds and flavours of this elegant city are within a 20-minute walk of Hotel Nani Mocenigo Palace and wandering out of the front door you’re immediately greeted by classic Venetian architecture, cafes that buzz with convivial chatter and the bustling waterways of this fluvial city. Stroll around the streets and you’ll stumble across hidden gardens, iconic vistas and extraordinary baroque churches while enjoying plenty of breaks for rich coffee, delicate pastries and memorable pizzas.



Gwen Nicol (Staff)

Hotel Nani Mocenigo Palace is the perfect hotel for those looking for traditional Venetian style in a quieter neighbourhood. This 15th-century palace offers 30 rooms and it is only a 15-minute walk to St Mark's Square and the Rialto Bridge. The rooms are traditional and cosy and the top two rooms offer a canal view. I recommend booking the mid-high category rooms for a little more space. The corridors are light and bright with traditional antiques and multiple places to sit and relax during the day. The hotel does not have a full service restaurant but they have a bar serving light bites during lunch and throughout the afternoon and evening. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful and if the weather is nice, there is a lovely courtyard to enjoy breakfast in the sunshine. The hotel staff were courteous and helpful throughout our stay. I would recommend Hotel Nani Mocenigo for couples interested in seeing a different side of Venice. The neighbourhood is full of museums and a few universities so it feels very quiet compared to the hotels near St Mark's Square.
