At age 95, Ilde left the hotel her favorite niece Cecilia Dolcetti. Cecilia's husband, talented businessman Luciano Pasotto has the hotel restored and transformed into the current 4-star residence.
An ancient building in Venice is where history unfolded for Hotel Giorgione, an old 4-star residence located in the city district of Cannaregio which has forever been a beacon of Venetian hospitality. A romantic story of passion and…pleasantness.
The story of Hotel Giorgione begins in the warehouse on Calle dei Frati ai Santi Apostoli, originally used to store the sweets produced by Venice's Dolcetti family. Restored at the beginning of the 19th century, the building is turned into an Inn, providing welcoming accommodations and an on-site bocce court.
At the end of the 19th century, the purchase of the house next to the warehouse allowed for an expansion of the inn, which changed its name to Giorgione Hotel in honor one of the most talented artists of the time: painter Giorgione, a charming fellow whose talent captured Venetian aristocracy.
Set in the cosmopolitan city of Venice, the hotel was passionately managed by Giovanni Dolcetti, art expert and painting connoisseur who turned the hotel into the stay of choice for scholars, diplomats, and foreign visitors by offering modern amenities in rooms that conveyed the priceless feeling of being ‘at home.’
With the passing of time, management of the hotel was inherited by Ilde Scarpa and her husband Gustavo Dolcetti who, after taking over for his brother Giovanni, died at a young age, leaving to his wife the task of upholding the former inn's reputation.
Bright, young and educated Ilde carefully tended to Hotel Giorgione, always maintaining an excellent level of service, reflecting the belief that customers are like ‘house guests’, faithful friends who duly return to recapture the charm of Venice. This dedication to service is still alive and well at Hotel Giorgione.
