Orient Express’s Italian encore in Venice is in partnership with Arsenale. The Palazzo Dona' Giovannelli will be the second Orient Express hotel in Italy.


The result of the partnership between Accor and the Arsenale group, following the collaboration on the Dolce Vita trains and the Hotel de La Minerve in Rome.
Architect and interior designer Aline Asmar d'Amman and her studio Culture in Architecture were chosen to redesign the hotel which is currently undergoing restyling.

Hidden rooftop terraces with panoramic views

Orient Express Venice is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2024 with 45 rooms and suites, all with views of the city's gardens and canals. The main floor of the building will also house a bar in the former ballroom and a restaurant, at the helm of which there will be an internationally renowned chef. There is also a series of hidden terraces on the rooftops with panoramic views over Venice.

Just ten minutes from the Santa Lucia railway station

Located only ten minutes from Venice's Santa Lucia railway station and near the shopping district of Cannareggio, Palazzo Donà Giovannelli was built in 1400 by architect Filippo Calendario, known for the city's famous Doge's Palace. The former residence of the Duke of Urbino, a patron of the arts, it has been renovated twice, most notably in 1800 by architect Gian Battista Meduna. Once a picture gallery, it later became the property of the Donà and Giovannelli families. When the hotel opens, passengers on the future Orient Express La Dolce Vita train will be able to disembark directly at the station and either walk or take a boat to the hotel.
