What Makes It Special Nowadays?

The shape and structure of the building shows in a very accurate way not just how it was in the XVIII century but also how the city has changed during the ages, trying to adjust to the new needs of the locals.
Like the other buildings overlooking the Gran Canal, at the ground floor you have 2 entrances, one facing the water and one on the walk-able street - in our case, Strada Nova.
In the beginning, the building was reachable only through its two precious water doors. They were used both for people and goods, loaded and unloaded directly from the boat on the house. At the end of the XIX, the population was quickly increasing and the need of more walk-able route was becoming a priority. The Strada Nova was built to pass through the Cannaregio district, arriving at Rialto bridge. That's when the second entrance to the building was created, allowing us today to reach the hotel on foot.
Nowadays, every floor of the building has a different purpose accordingly to the time changing.
At the ground floor we got deposits of a construction company, taking advance of the water doors -exactly like the old days! The first floor hosts exhibitions the all year, but it's specifically known for its design show linked to the famous La Biennale di Venezia. At the second floor you'll find a private apartment and some offices.
Our hotel is instead exclusively at the third floor, giving it the best view that the entire building can offer.

The Palazzo Experience

Spending your stay at Locanda Ai Santi Apostoli, you'll be in the very center of the island, giving that Rialto and Saint Mark's square are fairly close but also far enough for you not to be trapped into the wild crowd.
Cannaregio is lively district were a lot of locals still live, therefore you'll find plenty of shops, bars and restaurants.
Our building with its noteworthy architecture, its decorated features and its water doors is a true immersion in the Venetian vibe, a way to fill a gap between the Venice that was and the Venice that is today.
Coming back here after a long day exploring Venice, you'll truly feel attuned to the unique rhythm and color of the city.
