LA Calcina is in a quiet yet convenient location for Venice sightseeing. Located facing the Giudecca Canal in easy walking distance to all the main attractions and only a couple of minutes walk to the Vaporretto stop for journeys to further locations. Hotel breakfasts are excellent and offer inside or outside tables dependant upon weather. La Calcina is ideally placed... More

We stayed at La Calcina from Feb 13 to Feb 18 2015. This was a very good location. It is a 20 second walk from the Zattere ACTV stop In Dorsoduro. This means quick access to the vaporetto for transit to San Marco attractions. Or you can walk less than 5 minutes to the Grand canal to use the ACTV... More

My stay at La Calcina was wonderful. I appreciated the very clean and quiet room, the delicious breakfast, that its location is tucked away and overlooking water. I planned to study here (yes - in the midst of Carnevale!), and the room was perfect for this. I wasn't aware of the building's literary significance before I arrived (Ruskin, Zeno, Rilke).... More

Dear Sir/Madam, thank you for your review. During an holyday, the position of the hotel is always very important. La Calcina is situated in the sunny street of Zattere, which faces the beautiful Giudecca canal and which is only 15-20 minutes far from Saint Mark's square. So starting from La Calcina you can easily reach all most important places of... More

La Calcina is a magical place to stay in Venice. Its position on the waterfront is both beautiful and convenient for the Zattere water bus stop.

Great Hotel, nice quiet neighborhood and an easy walk to anywhere in Venice. Easy to get to as the Vaparetto and Alilaguna boat stops less than a five minute walk away, also nice and level, no hauling suitcases up and bridges. Great staff at the front desk, Very kind and very helpful. Lovely location and views. Very highly recommended.

La Calcina is on the south side of Dousodoro right on Zattere. I think this is one of the best parts of Venice. The view across the canal is spectacular and a wonderful place for a late afternoon cocktail. The rooms are very nice and reasonably spacious. The breakfast is very good and pleasantly served by Vera. The restaurant is... More
