We stayed here the day prior to our cruise departure. Although it took some navigating to find it, the hotel was in a great location - very central for seeing the Rialto Bridge and St. Mark's Square. When we first arrived, the person at the front desk was on the phone (on what appeared to be a non-hotel related business)... More

This is an excellent B & B located close to the Rialto Bridge with a private landing place for taxis. We arrived early and they were kind to let us an early check-in. They provide us with keys to the guest house and the rooms as the desk at reception will not be manned after evening. They helped us with... More

Hotel Ca'Arco Antico was a charming, quaint little B&B located just off a major throughway (less than 10 minutes walking distance to Ponte Rialto). Easy to find if you follow the hotel's email instructions (I suggest a water taxi or the waterbus if you want to save the wheels on your suitcase). Very friendly staff, quiet and clean room, good...

Great location. Hotel was clean and staff was helpful. Breakfast was filling and good typical European breakfast. Beds not most comfortable but not uncommon for Europe. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

This was my second visit to this hotel and I wasn't disappointed. I visited nine years ago and it is still very well maintained, clean and convenient. It was so easy to get off of the train, hire a private water taxi and be taken right to the dock that is less than 50 meters from the hotel entrance. We... More

It is not well marked. Our room was clean and adequate but was rather pricey for adequate. Unless you use the water taxi you need to haul your luggage quite a distance. We only stayed one night so we didn't get to see a lot of the historic sights nearby.

We had a room that could just fit a double bed in - absolutely nothing like the photos on the website. Despite a/c having a fan working it didn't cool the room. Rang to ask for it to be sorted but nothing happened - very hot and uncomfortable night in a double bed that was actually 2 single mattresses pushed... More

We stayed here for one night last August. I was sooo impressed with the grandeur of our room, the Cassanova Suit. Four poster bed, deep red fabrics, loads of space, luxurious bathroom. Just gorgeous! The building is Antico through and through and very Venitian! On arrival we met the lady who I think owns it. She was so friendly and... More

The location was convenient to everything that we wanted to visit. The proprietor, Marco gave us very good tips on places to eat and see. We also enjoyed the generous breakfast every morning. The wifi was a little slow but we were on vacation so email and internet was not so important.

Fantastic location, friendly staff and nice room in venetian style. Our room was very clean, the shower too. Rooms cleaned every day, towels changed every day! The breakfast was more than enough: croissant, bread, cheese, ham, butter, honey, jam, nutella, yoghurt, fruits, muesli, milk, tee and coffee are on a buffet table. The wifi worked well, and we could heat... More
