I reread some of the other reviews and understand why some people might not have given good reviews. But get a life here, we are talking about Venice...expensive, beautiful, easy to get lost in all those little streets yes. Was the hotel hard to find? Yes. Were there lots of steps? Yes (find a hotel in Venice that does NOT... More

My biggest peeve with this hotel is the deceptive (not to say OUTRIGHT LYING) description. Firstly, we booked a King size bed room and got a tiny double. Secondly, the description says wi-fi is available and complimentary. This is an outright lie. There's no wi-fi at Ca Formosa. The owners offered us to go to their other property in order... More

My girlfriend and I had booked Ca Formosa but we ended up having to stay in the attic at Ca Malipiero around the corner. We had booked the 'economy room' here and ended up with the attic in their sister hotel. Read my Ca Malipiero review for the story there since that was the actual hotel we stayed in. I'd... More

Fantastic location,short walking distance to piazzza st marco and other local attractions.Hotel very clean,rooms well equpipped (towels,toiletries in the bathroom,hair dryer etc.).Breakfast very basic,not much of a choice- but still good,considering the fact that we only paid 150 pounds for 3 nights,for 2 people.I've booked one room for 4 people,as we went with our friends and it was much cheaper...

We arrived late Sunday evening and got a bit lost but luckily a friendly local waiter directed us down the dark, spooky alleys and we finally found ca Formosa! The lovely local worked at a fab resturant called carluccio's a 2 min walk from hotel that sold lovely food for very reasonable prices so worth a visit! Once we finally... More

This hotel had a great location, near one of Piazzas and Rialto Bridge. The room was tiny, but decent. for Venetian standards. The staff were super friendly. We had a decent breakfast, even though we had to walk over to the sister hotel.

In the hotel we were moved to another hotel, it seemed they are in common, because this hotel didn't have a name. It was attic room and was soooo small, so we couldn't move without hitting our heads. Shower and WC were outside of the room, but it seemed that us only were using it. The hotel has very good... More

we stayed only one night but had a good rest and a good breakfast. Small hotel. Clean. 10 minutes walking from San Marco square. Over a small bridge. The reception is in an other hotel on the third floor around the corner. With airconditioning in the rooms.

After our hot and very busy walk from the train station we were excited to get to the hotel, but we're immediately shifted to another hotel managed by the same people. We were reassured that this was better but when we got to the room, we partner could barely stand under as we were in a makeshift attic type room,... More

We are four friends who reunited for a city break in Venice and we wanted something central, near San Marco, with some character and not very expensive. We have opted for Ca Formosa, which was a very good choice in terms of value for money. The 4 of us shared a room and a bathroom with another room and payed... More
