Hotel Overview

Sense of place

On the banks of the Grand Canal but rucked away from the tourist crowds in the Santa Croce quarter.

Rooms at Cima Rosa

Cima Rosa’s five rooms reflect its billing as a boutique B&B, with exposed beams and parquet wooden floors creating a warm, traditional atmosphere. Two of the rooms are suites with living rooms and terraces, and all are tastefully decorated with unique and repurposed items – the owners also have a business restoring furniture, so you’ll find one off touches, like workbenches refashioned into shelves, in each of the rooms.

Food and facilities

Breakfast at Cima Rosa is a delicious but no-frills affair, with a selection of fresh fruit, pastries, meat and cheese served in the communal living room. Though this is a bed & breakfast, there’s a kitchen which guests are welcome to use throughout the day. Owners Daniele and Brittany have compiled an ‘Eat Like a Venetian’ list of the most delicious restaurants nearby.

Activities at Cima Rosa

The famous sights of Venice are all easily accessible, but Cima Rosa’s location is great for exploring some of the lesser visited spots on this sleepier side of the Grand Canal. These include the Baroque palace Ca’ Pesaro, home to the Venetian Museum of Modern Art, and the Natural History Museum at Fondaco dei Turchi. One of Venice’s most important churches, Basilica dei Frari, which is filled with art, is also just round the corner.
