“Perfect Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Just home after a 3 day stay and fantastic time at this little gem of a hotel. The situation is perfect and just minutes from Rialto bridge. We had a triple room which was a double room and single room together (room 109) breakfast was great choice and served on upper floor overlooking grand canal.........cannot get better. Room cleaned daily. Downstairs is a small bar and unbelievably cheap for what it is and where it is. Reception staff hugely helpful and friendly......big thanks to Giovanni for help with Hard Rock Cafe.....thanks also for making our dinner reservations. Will be looking to return here definitely :)

We stayed as a family of four in October 2013. We had a quad room, the beds were comfy and the room was a good size. It had a lovely bathroom which was under the stairs, so the bath was slightly sunken due to the stairs above. This made it quirky and the shower head was slightly lower than usual but my 6ft husband still managed to shower okay. The room was clean, with appropriate Venetian furniture which added to the charm of staying in such a wonderful city. The breakfast was very enjoyable with a range of different types of croissants and usual buffet breakfast items served in a beautiful room overlooking the Grand Canal.

We really enjoyed coming back to the hotel after a busy day exploring, but one of the highlights of our holiday was feeling in need of a coffee and sit down, we discovered we were near the hotel so we popped in and got a coffee which we drank on the landing stage overlooking the Grand Canal. We spent a very happy hour watching the world go by, enjoying our coffee. It got better as the receptionist discovered it was my birthday so gave us all complimentary drinks - we really appreciated it and it made my day all the more special.

We found a restaurant, Muro San Stae, where we had a very enjoyable, good value dinner which was within walking distance of the hotel.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay in this hotel again, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This hotel is a little tricky to locate from San stae. It is only a few minutes walk but difficult in he dark! The room was lovely and very spacious, perfectly adequate for three people. The breakfasts were great and the little terrace had splendid views over he Grand Canal. The hotel is ideally situated for walking to all the main attractions of Venice city. The only problem was that the room was rather warm and it is not possible to have air conditioning in November in Venice. We, rather stupidly, opened the windows and were very badly bitten by mosquitoes! Be warned, there are still lots about in Venice in November. The staff were very polite and extremely helpful. We will definitely return to this hotel and have no difficulty recommending it.

My friend and I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in October 2013. Transfer from the airport was easy - we bought a return ticket on the Alilaguna and it took us straight into Venice. Here though, we made our first mistake - we got off at Rialto. After a few days of wandering around Venice, this would have been absolutely fine and we would have got to the hotel easy, but, we had no idea and ended up following the directions on our iPhones!! Somehow we eventually got there! Definitely get off the Alilaguna at San Stae, its very easy to find the hotel from there, just over 3 small bridges and takes minutes. When you get off the boat head to the left and there is a bin with clear directions to the hotel on it. Also, on the way there are a couple hotel signs to help you.

Checking in at the hotel was quick and simple, we were shown straight to our room and helped with our bags. Our room was great, clean and a good size with a small balcony. Also had a nice sized en suite with a shower over the bath. Had Sky TV which had English music channels that we put on in the mornings when getting ready to go out. There also were also other international channels available if you want that kind of thing when you're away.

Some have commented that the baths are small, but I didnt find that to be the case at all and I'm 5'9. Quite a powerful shower too which is rare for hotels! Room was fairly quiet at night too, although there was a little noise from the canal it wasnt enough to keep me awake. It was to be expected though - the hotel is right on the Grand Canal!

Breakfast was really good, and staff really friendly (unlike some of the other guests we encountered at breakfast!!). Good selection of cereals, bread, cheese, meat, yogurts, croissants and probably some other stuff I can't remember. All replenished frequently.

Some reviewers are complaining about all the staircases in the hotel. There are 3 sets of stairs, and yes, the third set are fairly steep, but there are only 19 steps. Unless you are spending a lot of time in the hotel when you are in Venice and not exploring the city I'm guessing you won't be going up and down them a lot? To those commenting on the lack of lifts: this is a 14th Century building - of course there are no lifts! Lifts would ruin the building! I understand that some aren't able to do the stairs, so would suggest they request a room on the ground or first floor.

I can't really say anything bad about this hotel. The chaps on reception were all really nice, friendly and helpful, the hotel was clean and well kept, the outside veranda was great to sit and have a drink. The location of the hotel is fantastic - 5mins walk to Rialto and 15 to San Marco. If you arent able to walk that though, the Vaporetto stop is minutes away too. Would definitely return! Many thanks!

Room Tip: If you aren't able to climb a lot of stairs, then request a ground floor room, or one on the fir...

Old building with some updates, while retaining the old style (antique) feel of venice. Only 2-3 bridges to lug the luggage to get to the hotel which was easy to find if you have a map. Both vaporetto stops work, eithe S. Stae or the Rialto Mercato. Fairly quiet at night without too much of the noise from the Grand Canal unless your room is over the water side. Rooms were very spacious and high ceiling.
Stayed here for for 4 nights and breakfast provided was good. Nothing fancy but gave a great start to the day without the hassle of looking for coffee.
Rialto Fish market was really close by and was entertaining every morning. Nearby restaurant was not bad but a little pricey (alla madonna was better)
Good for family stay as our room came with an additional day bed. We would return to stay here as it is not too far from the attraction and was not too close either. Just about perfect.
Staff was great and helped with luggage to the third floor! No Elevator, so forget about bringing that microwave from home.

Room Tip: Get google map for walking directions, otherwise you are gonna end up in the water Pack light as th...

Ca' Favretto is located in a nice, old building. My room was quite small, but probably normal for Venice. Clean room with immediate hot water. Service is always very kind and the buffet breakfast includes all you need for the start of a good walking day. Just 7-8 minutes walking distance from the San Stae stop (or dock) where you can take the "Vaporretto" or public transport boats to anywhere else in Venice or to come from or go to the airport. These boats are the cheapest trasport means around here. Forget taxis or private boat rides. Not wort it. Rialto, Piazza San Marco, the fish market, etc. are at a nice walking distance. You are basically at the heart of Venice. Good choice.

Our stay at the San Cassiano started perfectly when the water taxi from Venice airport deposited us directly on the hotel's dock: no need to lug suitcases over the bridges and down the alleyways! The hotel staff were impeccable, always perfectly helpful, and the room with a balcony looking out over the Grand Canal was simple but spacious by Venice standards (as was the bathroom) and perfectly clean. The only slight downside was a rather hard bed. Breakfast was also taken on a terrace directly overlooking the Grand canal, looking across at the Ca d'Oro (worth a visit, incidentally). The rate for this 4 star hotel was surprisingly cheap and we will certainly stay there on our next visit to Venice.

Room Tip: Room 323 involves three flights of stairs but the balcony looking over the Grand Canal makes it wort...
