“Great Location but Poor Rooms facilities”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

After reading previous reviews and finding the youtube video on the internet the hotel was quite easy to find, no problems at all. From the vaperetti stop Rialto bridge it is approximately 10 minutes walk with suitcases. The Location is quite good. It is quiet and quite central in Venice with San Marco another 10-15 minute walk.

Whilst checking we were made to wait as the check in staff at the desk was busy with other duties. Nevertheless we were given the key to out room and told to come back a short while later. However the staff member wanted a credit card to secure the room. This is the norm in all hotels however i was quite surprised and angry when it was wrote down on a pen and paper at the front desk unsupervised for anyone to see or take. Normally hotels swipe the card into the computer not write personal details that are confidental on a piece of paper. Quite unprofessional! On return to the check in desk to offically check in about 45 minutes later the details were still on the counter. At this point I mentioned this to the check in staff member in which i recieved the answer "this is how we take card details".

The room itself is spacious and tidy however in a poor state genrally. There is no coffee making facilities, a small fridge and no bath. There is radiators for heating and air conditioning however you CANNOT control either from the room and they seem to come on randomly throughout the day or night. The bathroom has very bad mould everywhere. The room also has mosquitos!!!!!!

Not such a big issue but you have to pay for wifi.

The room cleaners however are very good and do a very good job. If it wasnt for them it would be one star only.

Room Tip: Dont open the windows, you will get mosquitos If you wash your clothes its going to take ages to dr...

My husband and I recently stayed at Ca'Bragadin. We had absolutely no trouble finding the hotel as the directions on their website were perfect. Our room was very spacious, the king size bed comfortable, and in a quiet location. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. There was staff available 24 hours a day. Everyone was super friendly and very helpful with setting up tours for us and suggesting restaurants. We loved walking the streets of Venice. Our hotel was in a great location. We would most definitely recommend anyone traveling to Venice to stay here. Excellent.

The Ca' Bragadin Carabba is a great place to stay in Venice. We heard how difficult it was to find hotels in Venice. However, the Ca' Bragadin Carabba has an excellent You Tube video providing turn-by-turn instructions - an excellent idea! We found the hotel in a snap. The room we stayed in was exceptionally large (especially by European standards), exceptionally clean, and also exceptionally comfortable. You do have to climb a few flights of stairs, but that is the norm throughout Venice with such older buildings. The staff of the hotel was excellent and friendly as well. Breakfast is available and is a pretty standard continental - plenty to get a day started. The location is great as well and is within walking distance of the Rialto Bridge and San Marco Square. We could not be more pleased with our stay and will definitely look to book here again!

Great little place, super location 5 mins from Rialto bridge, not as hard to find as many suggest. Super service with 24 hr reception who were always pleasant and cheerful, we didn't try the breakfast as we couldn't wait to sample Venice, try the little cafe left out of front door then left into Santa Marina square and cafe is on right hand side, super coffee and again great service. Bedroom was spacious, daily cleaner did a great job. All round great spot!

We stayed here on our first visit to Venice in October 2013 for our wedding anniversary (on the anniversary package).
This included three red roses, prosecco and chocolates in our room on arrival and breakfasts for duration of stay. Breakfast was continental style and good. Staff were always very helpful and friendly. Hotel was always clean and tidy.
Location is ideal about 8mins to Rialto bridge and 15 mins to San Marco ( if you don't loose your way, which you frequently do in venice it's part of the charm). It's less noisy where it's located. There's a cash machine, a supermarket, a pharmacy, places to eat or grab a drink immediately near the hotel. We would definitely stay here again. Make sure you take a note of the directions, address and telephone number as it is difficult to find at first. We used the trip advisor city guide on our mobiles as it has a point me there compass which is useful ( it works offline ).

Used the map supplied by the hotel and after one wrong turn, soon found the place. Delighted with our room on the first floor, although we did not have a view, the room was a good size and very comfortable. The staff were all lovely and we were offered complimentary breakfast in our room each morning. A perfect place for our stay in Venice.

We truly enjoyed our stay at Ca' Bragadin. My husband had a rose and champagne waiting in the room. The room was beautiful and clean. All lights are on timers and go off at odd times, even if you are still moving in the hall, etc. I removed my rose from the water to dry out before packing it, and the cleaning staff kept putting it back in water and rearranging various things in the room, but not other (IMO more obvious) things. You have to drop your key off at the front desk before leaving each time, and ring a doorbell to get in then pick up the key to your room. A bit strange, and when you're in a hurry it is a bit cumbersome. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
