Guests at Hotel Heureka will be invited to discover theLittle Black Book of Secrets, exclusively prepared for a bespoke Venetian experience.
Hotel Heureka is situated in one of the liveliest and vibrant districts in the city, in the north-western sestriere of Cannaregio. A walk along these quiet canals is an immersion into the very soul of Venice. Extraordinary churches, historical buildings, typical bacari eateries and enoteche line the waterways and there are unexpected glimpses of the lagoon and the islands beyond.
Playing with the layers of heritage and design, Hotel Heureka enhances and enchants, weaving tradition and art into one boutique property.
This palazzo, in which Hotel Heureka makes its home, dates back to the 16th Century and the sympathetic restoration now sees a smooth overlap between the architectural grandeur of the past and contemporary quirkiness of today. Having spent several years searching for their ideal property, the owners have discovered the bewitching Hotel Heureka.
Before the doors of this exquisite hotel opened after a two-year refurbishment, it would have been an entrance you might have overlooked or missed whilst meandering the quiet streets of Cannaregio, to find a sunny spot for lunch along the still Venetian backwaters in a local bacaro. Today, as you pass this fondamenta away from the crowds, and catch sight of the portego entrance that leads to the private garden beyond, you cannot help but step inside, and be drawn in.
The house has been quietly whispering wealth, passion and luxury to connoisseurs who appreciate the finer things in life, since October 2017. This hidden gem in the crown of Venice’s beautiful hotels lies in the heart and history of Cannaregio, overlooking the tranquillity of the Madonna dell’Orto canal and spectacular secular gardens.
Contemporary design, striking architecture, unique furnishings, sumptuous fabrics and quirky touches catch your eye throughout the building. With its 10 individually styled rooms, which are a mix of deluxe doubles and suites, the hotel has a distinct look that is all its own.
The hallmarks are the essential four-poster beds, lavish Lacroix textile-drops as bed-heads, double Rubelli brocade silks at the windows, incredible scape lamps, designer bathrooms with grand free-standing baths, and Julian Khol commissioned art … each room is a haven in which to escape and unwind.
Outside, Hotel Heureka hides a true treasure, in the form of a spacious secret garden; an oasis of tranquillity, where the bees find their pollen before taking it back to Murano’s bee hives. By day, the garden is the perfect place to relax under the leafy canopy of the trees, and at night, it’s an enchanting spot in which to while away an evening under a blanket of stars.
