Old and new mix well at this hard-to-spot 'Maison de Charme'. Hiding behind a green door, through a dark stone-floored corridor and a courtyard, and up 58 stairs, is a bright and immaculate hotel.
     With only six rooms, spaced over two floors, each is large by Venetian standards, and stylish. Bedrooms have original exposed beams, marble-topped tables and painted wardrobes. Cream walls and painted wooden furniture give rooms a fresh feel, while colourful paintings and warped floorboards or Venetian marble tiles add character. Each room is decorated differently. Bathrooms are neat with green and turquoise tiles and well-stocked toileteries. For tall people the long beds will be a pleasure. The mix of old and new continues in the public parts with a large original china cabinet in the breakfast room and plastic translucent chairs around the breakfast table. In reception, on top of a dark wood sideboard - covered with reccomended restaurant business cards - sits an intriguing translucent lamp. These modern twists are incorporated subtly into the hotel's original character to create an interesting and stylish place to stay.
