The cheapest price of £76 (~€90) (+€7 city tax) is available in November and December. If you wish to stay at the hotel at an earlier date, you’d have to pay €119. That price includes an upgrade to the Deluxe King room, breakfast, a welcome glass of white wine per person, a visit to the glass factory for a glass blowing demonstration & visit to the showroom (per room), and the airport transfer from Venice’s Marco Polo airport.
Another important thing to consider is that you can cancel your booking and get a full refund up until 8 days before checking in.
The Hyatt Centric Murano Venice is located on a small island in the Murano neighborhood, which is famous for its glass factories. To reach downtown Venice, you’ll have to take a 15-minute Vaporetto boat ride, which costs €7.50 each way – or €40 for a 3-day pass, valid for all waterbuses.
The hotel was previously a glass factory, which can somewhat still be noticed when looking at the interior design. Beside the classic glass lamps and big chandeliers, the hotel also offers modern services, e.g. a sauna, Turkish bath, and gym.
Even if Venice is more of a summer destination, you can also get lucky with the weather in the winter. In fact, from September through March there are statistically fewer rainy days than from April through June. Furthermore, the amount of rainfall is also lower.

The standard price for the Hyatt Centric Murano varies strongly depending on the season. The refundable rate with breakfast, however, is always more expensive than what Secret Escapes is charging.
Booking a King Bed Deluxe room on Hyatt’s website, with breakfast, usually costs roughly €190 in November, you’re thus saving roughly 55%!
Even the cheapest room (1 King Bed room) costs roughly €150 with breakfast, meaning that even there you’d be saving roughly 40%!
Strangely, though Secret Escapes charges a higher price for dates before November, the Hyatt’s price is exactly the same, so you’d only be saving roughly 20%, which is still a good deal, of course.
