I just spent one week in La Calcina and I very much enjoyed my stay there. For me, in a city the most important thing is location, and here its perfect. The hotel is right on the Zattere in Dorsoduro, with beautiful views of the Guidecca canal and island. Its away from the crowds of St. Marco and the Rialto... More

I was in Venice on business over 2 of the most hot and humid days I've experienced in a long time. The hotel is in a great location--a few minutes' walk from the Zattere vaporetto and Alilaguna stops (the 2nd of these is the airport service); one can also walk--easily, without getting lost--from the Accademia vaporetto stop. Because it is... More

I have been visiting this hotel for over 25 years, it is a special place. I have stayed at The Danielle and some other 5 star establishments but I always return to Calcina! The hotel has a special atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent food. We have seen changes over the years, but all positive,(although I do miss the heavy silver... More

Highly recommend this hotel, their location, service and cleanliness of their rooms could not be better. Best to have a meal on their floating terrace and watch the boats pass by. Will stay there again. Check out their unique terrace which is located on the rooftop. Also easy to reach with the local ferry.

If we ever return to Venice, we'll stay here again. Our upstairs room looked out over the Giudecca Canal, the onsite restaurant, La Piscina, was great, and the staff was friendly and helpful. They made restaurant recommendations for the one night La Piscina was closed, they made private taxi reservations for us, and helped get our luggage onto the water... More

Four of us stopped off for lunch on the pontoon outside the hotel. My wife and I ordered risotto advertised for two people. When the food arrived my meal was missing and had to be reordered. With then sat for a long while until our dirty dishes were cleared away while in the meantime empty tables were cleared by waitresses.... More

we visited in may and hat a good lunch, however when we explained we had been travelling all night and had to refuse repeated requests to buy more food we had one of the smallest and lightest of dishes because we wanted to take a nap soon. They werent rude but a bit offhand. The food we had was excellent.

The Calcina occupies a great position overlooking the Guidecca and has a floating platform where breakfast and dinner is served. Weather permitting. The hotel is comfortable, traditional in style and well decorated. The staff are also welcoming and very helpful. The hotel is also only a few minutes walk from the Grand Canal and the public ferry station Academia which... More

I like the location of La Calcina overlooking the Guidecca with all the boats and the huge cruise ships passing by. The staff are excellent and although there is no lift our luggage was swiftly taken up to our room with no fuss. I also emailed various requests to the hotel prior to arriving which they responded to efficiently. The... More

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
