This hotel and its very friendly atmosphere were a major reason why we enjoyed our stay in Venice very much. Ca' Fontanea is located in a very quiet neighborhood. At the same time, the hotel is within walking distance from some nice restaurants as well as the train station and Piazzale Roma. The rooms are spacious, clean, and cozy -... More

My review is a bit biased because we booked, and paid for, a standard double room, but due to a pipe burst we were moved into their apartment room instead. The apartment was amazing! Romantic wood beam ceiling and white linens on a comfy bed. Kitchen which allowed us to prepare our own breakfasts and happy hour each day to... More

Ca Fontanea was perfect for our Venice stay. It was easy to take a water bus into the more sight seeing parts of town as this is a more northwest or western part of Venice but it doesn't really matter unless you want to be right in the middle of everything which we did not. Lucio did me a giant... More

At breakfast on one of our four mornings at this lovely hotel we overheard an American lady complaining bitterly to her companion how far out of the hotel was from the main attractions. She had missed the point entirely. This is exactly why one would want to stay here. Situated down a quiet alley, surrounded by lovely old private houses,... More

I stayed for 3 nights, my parents for 7 and were impressed with this hotel/B&B. It was a 5 min walk along a pretty, quiet canal from the Alilaguna/Vaporetto stop Guglia. Only one bridge with steps from the canal stop, so no problem with luggage. The hotel is down the last little alley before you reach the University buildings. Communication... More

Quiet location in a small courtyard about 15 minutes walk from Santa Lucia railway station, 20 minutes from the Piazzale Roma bus station and a few minutes from Crea water bus stop. Nice welcome from Lucio who showed us to our large, spotlessly clean air conditioned room. Comfortable bed with good linen and extra pillow. Bathroom rather small but powerful... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon. It was in a quieter area if venice (15 minute walk from train station - the hotel helpfully provided directions for this) and suited us being out of the major tourist parts. Hotel was superb, room was spotless and furnished well, breakfast good and staff were excellent. If we visited venice... More

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Venice this is a good spot. Would not recommend this for a first time visitor to Venice - see my other review - it is a good walk from the bus drop from the airport and from the railway station and if you don't know your way around... More

We stayed here for three nights in July 2014. Great location, it's wonderful to be out of the main tourist area and right in with the locals. It's a 15 minute walk to an area with loads of shops and restaurants. We walked from the bus station, took about 20 minutes which is prob the same as getting the water... More

We stayed at Ca' Fontanea in July 2014. The guesthouse is about 15 minutes walk from the train station (or you can take waterbus outside the train station which is only few minutes walk after you got off the waterbus). There is no staff in the reception in the afternoon. We notified the guesthouse our time of arrival in advance... More
