It is closed from 5 Jan-12 Feb, but around those dates, the low season (24 Nov-23 Dec and 12 Feb to Carnival) rates are €180 for a double room, with breakfast included.

Palazzo Abadessa

3 Palazzo Abadessa. Elegant hospitality near the Ca’Doro-Cannaregio area, a vibrant quarter where Venetians live, work, shop, eat and drink, or take a traghetto across the Grand Canal to the Rialto market. The palazzo is closed from 5-31 Jan but opens again on 1 Feb with winter rates beginning at €100 for a double room, with sumptuous breakfast included.
