(Paris) The Cipriani hotel in Venice has been ranked as the best establishment in the world by the French aggregator La Liste which, after restaurants, inaugurates its ranking of the 1000 best hotels on Thursday.

“The best in the world is Italian, it’s the Cipriani hotel in Venice”, which is part of the Belmond group acquired in 2019 by LVMH, Hélène Pietrini, director of La List, told AFP.

It “went unanimously” with a score of 99.75 out of 100 in this “ranking of rankings”, which incorporates the opinions of specialized publications and customers on some 5,660 hotels listed at this stage by La List, has-t -she adds.

“It’s a mythical place that we know even if we’ve never been there, because it was in many films. It’s part of our collective unconscious,” said Jörg Zipprick, co-founder and editor-in-chief of The List.

In second place in this ranking, whose algorithm generates many ties, we find Peninsula Chicago (United States), Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal (Mexico) and Cheval Blanc St-Barth (France), with the score of 99.5.

In the French ranking, behind Cheval Blanc, come La Réserve and Le Meurice in Paris in second position, then Le Bristol in Paris and the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc (Antibes) in third.

Since 2015, La Liste has already established its ranking of the 1000 best restaurants in the world based on the opinions of guides, food critics and customer feedback.
