Myself and my husband travelled to Venice last week (end of October 2012) and stayed in teh Ca Pagan hotel. The hotel was only a few minutes walk from two different water taxi stops and was only a short walk from St Mark's Square. The staff were lovely and friendly, and the hotel decor was beautiful and quaint, all marble and mirrors in the foyer but it was compact so it wasn't OTT or anything...it was just really lovely. We had a lovely room on the first floor, very spacious with beautiful furnishings and two big windows, and the bathroom was also gorgeous and spacious. The breakfast was also nice but standard continental (no hot extras or anything). I was really sorry we hadn't planned our trip to stay 2 nights in Venice as the city is beautiful and interesting and I would have loved another day to go exploring and visit more craft shops and not just visit the main sites, and also the hotel was lovely, well situated and not expensive (probably due to season) so another night there would have been great too!!
