A historic landmark architectural structure, right at the heart of Heraklion, Veneziano Boutique Hotel provides you the finest hospitality in the city. Known to be one of the most elegant buildings in the city, it proudly boasts of an interior courtyard that is filled with sunshine and a lot of green plants.
The hotel can never simply be spoken about with mentioning its extremely royal architectural elements. It will remind you of the Ottoman era, from which this structure has been inspired. Due to its immensely sensitive value, there’s a local archaeological department for the protection of the same. Endless nations and cultures that might have been passed from Crete are represented in the most vivid ways through the exteriors of Veneziano Boutique Hotel.
This two-storeyed hotel overlooks the ethnic corner streets. The history of this building began during the period of the Venetian occupation around 1510. Each building of the hotel served different purposes. The Aga of Heraklion once used to reside in the main building of this hotel. He made use of the beautiful courtyard in form of a stable. The first floor was the Aga’s space where his wives used to reside. The Ministry of Culture considers the building as a “historical monument and a work of art.”
The hotel features four spacious, superior-deluxe rooms and two double-floored family apartments for accommodation purposes. The apartments are connected to the couryard which, besides oozing the luscious green nature, also packs a Cafe and a Wine bar. If you’re hungry then you can head on over for a Cretan-diet breakfast. For some relaxing massages, you can head to the Spa in the basement. In addition to all of this, you get to experience endless in-room amenities which will make your stay even more comfortable.
The ornately designed structures of the building make it pop out among the rest and even make it pleasing to the eye. The combination of Venetian and Ottoman elements is done in a manner that will charm you and captivate your attention. The wooden roofs and windows take you back in time to the 1500s.
The building is divided into two wings in the shape of “Γ” of the Greek alphabet. It served as the meeting place of the nobles back then but even today, you can enjoy the same luxury and grandeur in the hotel with its spacious rooms and splendid services. The hotel even books tours and travel packages for you on request. This is your chance to discover the history of Heraklion and live in it like never before.
