Hotel Gabrielli has been a family-run hotel since 1856. Its atmosphere has changed little since then, as its interior is decorated with period furniture, Murano glass chandeliers and marble. Guests can enjoy dining on the waterfront terrace or relax in its lovely courtyard and romantic garden. In 1913 Franz Kafka may have done the same – when he penned a love letter to his fiancée Felice Bauer on the hotel’s stationary.
