Went on a cruise that started in Venice so we stayed here the night before. As we had very limited time here we wanted something budget-friendly yet centrally located. The building is unmarked from the outside so you have to check in across the street at their partner hotel, Belle Arti. The breakfast is included (and very tasty) which is... More

The location was great but we had issues with lack of aircon in scorching heat, no hot shower and poor breakfast. staff was ok but not very helful about anything, not even knowing how we could best get to the main train station.

To go to the hotel you can take a waterbus and get off at Acedemia stop then take the road on your left. It's only 100 metres and you should see Belle Arti on your right. Domus Cavanis itself is in a building with no sign. There's no staff at the building so you have to go to Bell Arti... More

The Room was relatively clean, we had very low expectations given the £100 per night price tag. The reason we made allowances was location and budget. Hotel reception staff were unhelpful and were unhappy to assist. The only saving grace was the room was clean and the location was perfect.

In short Manager asked us to leave the hotel "You do not pay anything, no breakfast for you, leave now" Location is very good although it was hard to find. This hotel is under Belle Arti(3 star) which is located just across the street. its like their cheaper version. Room was clean. Breakfast was not worth. Horrible experience was with... More

Unless you read the letter box on the door, you won't identify this from the outside: no hotel sign, nothing. Anyway this seems to be working with Hotel Belle Arti a few meters down on the other side of the nicely tree-lined street, from where you check in for this place and obtain your key, and have breakfast (plentiful breads,...

First of all, there's no sign indicating that this is the place. My Google map told me that it is one or two buildings from Hotel Belle Arti, lack of any external visible sign made it impossible to locate it. It was drizzling when I got off the boat and it made it that much more problematic. Finally, on the... More

I visited Venice in May 2012 with a close girlfriend and we booked Domus Cavanis for two nights. We found the hotel to be perfect for what we needed. The price just can't be beaten - all hotels in Venice are quite expensive but Domus Cavanis was very reasonable and as long as you don't expect it to be more... More

Toilet had a huge whole in it, had to reach into tank to flush. BLOOD on walls, shower was filled with mold, staff was the rudest I ever encountered. They were very mad at us when we checked in because we came around 11pm which must have been past the man's bedtime. When we complained about the room issues all... More

We were on a budget but wanted to have the experience of living in Venice close to canals and within walking distance of St Mark's Square. After a lot of research I found this hotel...so glad I did! All we wanted were quiet comfortable clean warm rooms (we came in February) with plenty of hot water and a good shower...and... More
