Avani Hotels & Resorts, the lifestyle brand under the Minor Hotels umbrella, is delighted to announce its latest addition to the European hotel scene: Avani Rio Novo Venice. This project responds to the desires of on-the-go professionals and millennial travelers who appreciate the fusion of work and leisure.
Located in the picturesque Dorsoduro district, the Avani Rio Novo Venice features 144 rooms set against a backdrop of ancient canals and historic bridges. The hotel's modern architecture, with its glass façade, provides easy access to authentic Venetian restaurants, renowned art galleries such as the Gallerie dell'Accademia and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, and the lively Campo Santa Margherita.
This chic hotel, deeply influenced by Italian rationalist architecture, pays tribute to Venice's connection with the world of cinema, in particular the annual Venice Film Festival. Cinephiles will appreciate the film-themed restaurant, 8 Millimetri Cicchetti & Wine, adorned with photographs of Italian film icons and offering take-away food. For meetings and events, this restaurant can be combined with well-lit meeting spaces named after legendary Italian directors, accommodating up to 130 participants.
"Much like Avani, Dorsoduro epitomises a harmonious blend of culture and entertainment, history and contemporary living, sophistication and simplicity. This exciting new launch closely follows the opening of Avani Palazzo Moscova Milan Hotel and is the ideal setting for the brand’s second property in Italy. Together, they provide guests with an exceptional foundation to explore some of Europe's most grandiose capitals in comfort and style." - Stefano Botteon, the General Manager of Avani Rio Novo
