Another Blot on the Landscape!

Hotel Santa Chiara and its new extension, Venice
The wraps have finally come off the latest addition to the urban fabric of Venice and the natives are not, at all, pleased by what they see.
Hotel Santa Chiara and its new extension, Venice
It has been five years in the making, but the new extension to the Hotel Santa Chiara (which faces the Grand Canal) will soon be open for business. The new wing, which has nineteen rooms and parking space for sixteen cars, is devoid (at least on the outside) of any form of decoration. 

The hotel stands on the site of what was once the medieval monastery and church of Santa Croce and incorporates all that is left of the complex in its end wall.
