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

Stayed here in July 2014 mainly due to the high number of excellent reviews on here. The room was nice, we were able to check in early, the breakfast was OK, room was fully cleaned each day - new towels etc. Free wifi too although that's expected these days. There was a thunderstorm during our stay and a fair amount... More

We were both happy with our very recent stay here. The hotel was nice and quiet and away from the crowds. The room and bathroom were very adequate. Clean etc. the breakfast was disappointing for me as it was only basic: cereal and toast. The milk was warm for the cereals. Hey ho, we can't have it all hey. But... More

Many of our traveling friends warned my husband and I about Venice-- they said it was too touristy, busy, we would run out of things to do on a 3 day stay, blah blah blah. But I have to say that choosing to stay at Ca Fontanea was the best choice we could have made for staying in Venice and... More

I didn't stay at this hotel--but bear with me! I planned to stay there but had to cancel. Although the clear policy was that I lose a significant deposit (which I understood), not only did they not charge me, but they also went above and beyond by working with booking.com to refund my money. In earlier correspondence, they gave me... More

My husband and I stayed in one of their apartments in the 2nd week of June. The location is in a far less touristy and hectic part of Venice where better food and quality of service is easier to find. It was lovely to retreat to our quieter part of Venice away from the mad crowds yet not far from... More

We stayed 3 nights at this small hotel (only 6 rooms) and the location is perfect if you don’t want to be in the middle of the main tourist areas. The room and the bathroom were clean also nice. The neighborhood is very quiet and the nearby restaurants are very good, and also used by many of the local people.... More

Stayed at Ca' Fontanea for one night. Located nicely outside the hustle and bustle of the centre of Venice yet still close enough to get there in about 15 mins. Spacious bathroom! Quiet area; pity that the mini bar fridge was humming so loudly all through the night.

Couldn't recommend this place enough. We spent 3 nights there. The location is far from the madding crowd but yet very handy for the vaporetto and walkable into the heat of things. There are also some delightful and non-touristy restaurants within walking distance from the guest house. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. We lost our passports at the... More
