Vitorrja is a hotel, guest house, and event space from the Gjelina Group, located one block from the Boardwalk and Beach in Venice, CA.

Inspired by the personalized hospitality of private hotels and the purposeful utility of traditional boarding houses, our residence-like rooms and suites are designed for finding a home away from home in our neighborhood.

An interconnected part of our Venice restaurants, bakery, grocer, home goods and flower shop, Vitorrja extends Gjelina Group’s dedication to quality, seasonality, and hospitality into the experience of living, traveling, and coming home.

About The Gjelina Group

Gjelina Group creates hospitality experiences delivered from a place of purpose, with simplicity. Named for founder Fran Camaj’s mother, Gjelina opened on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in 2008, serving locally-sourced, produce-forward food and becoming a staple in the Venice community. Since then, our businesses have evolved with our neighborhood — with our menus guided by conversations and long-standing relationships with Southern California farmers, local ranchers, fishermen, and co-ops.

Our Rose Avenue location is just one block from Venice Beach and boardwalk, and a short walk to Venice’s many options for dining, shopping, and exploring — including our neighborhood restaurant Gjelina and takeaway window GTA (1 mile away), our all-day bakery & cafe Gjusta and Gjusta Goods/Flower Shop (0.4 mile away), and our market Gjusta Grocer (0.8 miles away).

Should you wish for any additional items, including snacks, produce, non-alcoholic beverages, beer, or wine, please contact the front desk about ordering from Gjusta Grocer, or placing an order from one of our restaurants for delivery.

Please let us know if we can assist in making a reservation for you at Gjelina while you’re here.

Our restaurants Gjelina Take Away and Gjusta Bakery are also available for delivery via DoorDash.
