Just 100m from the water bus stop so very convenient when getting to and from airport. Rooms were comfortable, if quite neat in size.Service very friendly. Excellent breakfast to start the day. Unfortunately the restaurant was undergoing refurbishment during our visit. Good value for money

Returned here for a second time as we had a lovely stay about 6 years ago. The room I booked was not the one on the Internet, and I was under the impression that I had booked the best room available as it was for my 60th birthday. Also the Restaurant was closed for refurbishment and we were not advised... More

Been here once before and we belive it to be the best location in Venice, having said that rumour has it that a change of ownership has occured in the last 18 months and not for the better so far. The two main minus points are the room pricing which if you book direct seems inconsistent, i think its best... More

This once-private home along the Giudecca Canal in Venice (very near the "Zattere" vaporetto stop) is one of the finest places to stay if one is as fond of il sestiere Dorsoduro area of Venice. "Il Sestiere Dorsoduro" is literally "the hardback section, or quarter" of Venice, meaning it's the only one of the marshy islands that form the base... More

A really nice hotel positioned conveniently near all the main attractions but far enough out the way to escape the crowds. The staff were really helpful and friendly, we would definitely go back. There are also some really good restaurants in he area only 5 minute walk from the hotel.

La Calcina was an extremely beautiful, old, culture rich and delightful hotel. Everything about it was thoroughly enjoyable, the staff were always as helpful as possible, and we look forward to returning soon!

I loved this hotel in Venice. My traveling friend and I each had rooms, hers with a view, and mine without, and I loved my room and the concierge service, and the breakfasts included.The entire staff went out of their way to accommodate us.In addition, the first few days while I was solo, I felt very safe and welcomed.

Everything about La Calcina Hotel was lovely...I loved the fact that it was off the beaten path in the beautiful Dorsoduro area of Venice. The staff was extremely welcoming and helpful. The complimentary breakfast buffet was delicious. And the hotel has an authentic feel. The only thing I didn't quite like was the room itself, unfortunately. I reserved a single... More

We spent two days there and can say that this hotel is rather good though not perfect... It has a splendid disposition nearby the Accademia bridge, just some 30 meters away from the Fondamenta degli incurabili with the J. Brodsky memorial plaque. However when checking in it turned out that they mixed up our dates and did not wait us... More

Found this hotel quite by chance and was first stroke of luck on what proved to be a fantastic trip! got to the hotel at height of the Spring tide and found the staff welcoming and pleasant even at a late hour. Breakfast was charming with more of a feel of an English Tearoom but great relaxed way to start... More
