This hotel is set in the Corte del Forno Vecchio, San Marco. It is an inviting looking hotel, with what might be a tiny oratory set to one side of the entrance.
Thank you to Annie, of the Churches in Venice blog, for this information:

Fascinating looking place. I wonder if it is on Trip Advisor 🙂
Yes, I found it listed on Trip Advisor, Andrew. 🙂
And it gets good write-ups. I might try it one day.
I think that’s a brilliant idea! I hope I’m in Venice at the same time as you and Mrs Ha. I’d love to meet for a spritz or something. 🙂

Hi, Annie. I must hustle over to your blog and find the link so I can put it with the post. That’s interesting information, thank you. I’ve had no response from the Venetian mob about your shrine from the other day, sorry.
There was a gaggle of folks in Carnevale costumes with their personal photographer hogging the corte. I had to lurk until they left to get my chance!
Here’s the link to my post (and I added the additional info in the comments).
Thanks for posting the “mystery shrine” on Facebook!
I did find your original post, and have put the link here, and also on Facebook, with my blog post. Thank you!!!
I love this corte! I didn’t know what the name of the hotel is. Looks like the plants have grown a lot since I visited it.
Since I did my post, I learned that it was an oratorio when it was built in 1815 (and it was built on the ruins of a previous oratorio), but then at some point in the 20th century, it became the private chapel of the Banca Cattolica del Veneto. Not sure if that’s still the case or not (the book that told me that was published in the 1980’s).
I love these snowflakes falling on your blog right now! Cheers, Annie
