Architecturally the Boscolo Hotel is a masterpiece of Baroque design. Originally constructed in 1894 the hotel was restored to its former glory in 2007 and looks splendid.
There however the good news stops. The main restaurant which is more of an upmarket cafe is continually crowded with tourists photographing everything and anything that catches the eye.. This makes it seem more like a Disney theme park than a hotel restaurant.There is a separate restaurant although this only specialises in
nouvelle cuisine and is expensive.
The rooms are well proportioned and comfortable, don't expect any watchable TV it is all continual news programmes.The room servicing is poor - room not cleaned until 5pm- and an extinguished light bulb not changed until two days after asking.
Small matters but should be addressed by a so called 5 star hotel.
The large and grand lobby is spoiled by tourists who come to gawp and even picnic!
The overall feeling is disappointing. The hotel has been wonderfully restored yet has none of the intimacy and privacy that a hotel of this status and price should provide.
