Corte di Gabriela marries classic Venetian frescoes and stucco with some molto-mod design details to produce a very stylish four-star boutique handily placed in a quiet street near campo Santo Stefano. Obliging, well-informed staff preside over a pretty courtyard and a warmly red living room complete with grand piano and a little bar. Spacious bedrooms come with iPads and kettles; the bathrooms are large and chic. The breakfast is a rich feast of home-baked goodies. Two self- catering apartments located near the hotel are perfect for groups or families.
