Ca dei Polo
Ranked #14 of 474 Venice B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Having chosen Ca' dei Polo only by the hundreds of raving reviews here on TA, I didn't expect any bad surprises coming in this pleasantly located B&B, just a couple minutes away from Piazzale Roma, where buses and cars stay away from the city.

Having said that, the Ca' dei Polo was a very good find, either from how helpful and knowledgeable and kind owner Stefano and staff Francesca have been during the trip, or from the amazing quality of the service. The room I was in was very clean, smelled very good, the bed is just heaven on earth after a whole day walking the streets of Venice and while the bathroom is small, it has the convenience that one seeks when wanting a quick hot shower or a face washed.
The breakfast is just huge, you have so many choices in food, sweet or salty, or both, ranging from cereals, pastries, jams, ham, salami, eggs, several fruit juices that you're compelled to try each and every one of them everyday. Being someone who loves walking a lot around the cities I visit, it's great for the energy keeping.
Stefano and Francesca were of a great help during this 2013 edition of the Venice Carnival, printing schedules or giving me tips and ideas on Venice on various subjects such as restaurants, events, sights, art, ...
On the other services that the Ca' dei Polo provides, the Wi-Fi is good and free and even if you have to check in or check out before/after the standard hours, the staff is very flexible and nearby so you don't have to wait too long.

On the whole, an excellent and agreeable find that I would recommend to anyone wanting to fully experience Venice at an affordable price, away from the crowded and expensive districts of Rialto or San Marco. And while it's 15/20 minutes or so from San Marco, its location is still an asset because of the calmness of the district, the proximity of Piazzale Roma and several restaurants and bars that are just as good as the ones near San Marco.

We received the most wonderful service from Ca dei Polo this past September. When our cab driver, who drove us from the airport, could not figure out where the hotel was, we called the hotel and the proprietor, Stefano, came to the train station to meet us and personally escort us to the hotel (including hauling my overstuffed luggage up stairs and over the bridge). The hotel is lovely and situated in a great location to walk to many sites and restaurants. I will definitely stay there again.

On a recent trip to Venice to catch a cruise, we stayed at this property which is outstanding in every sense of the word. Not only is very convenient, within walking distance of Piazzale Roma (bus and train stations) and the people mover that takes you to the cruise terminal. Upon arrival we were greeted by Stefano who turned out to be not only extremely nice and helpful but also very knowledgeable about Venice and its attractions in general. Without us asking, we were upgraded to a fabulous suite overlooking the beautiful interior gardens and decorated with authentic Murano glass all over, all this at no extra cost to us. Next morning we were very surprised with the quality and abundance of the included breakfast, it is not your typical European breakfast, it is plentiful and tasty in a buffet-all-you want style. Our pleasant surprises did not stop there, on departure day, we were helped with all our luggage all the way to Piazzale Roma by the clerk at the front desk who by no means accepted any tip; compare this service with some of our travel mates who stayed at the Hilton in Piazza San Marcos and they were told that they had to carry their bags by themselves not even when they offer to pay since the flooding was still a serious problem for older people. Only problem, they do not have a sign out yet, according to Stefano it is due to the Italian bureaucracy, a very minor inconvenience when considering all the wonderful benefits.

Room Tip: The suites are stunning

I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Venice, Italy! The service was outstanding and the rooms were clean! The breakfast was wonderful! There were so many choices! Thank you! The hotel is right off the main waterway and in front of another smaller waterway. It was a very short distence from the train station, a nice walk along the water way.

Booked this hotel as travelling on a budget.. price & location looked okay...Not just "okay" but what a thrill and delight to stay here. Walking distance to the train or bus terminus, water bus .Piazzale Roma! No matter where i walked the signs leading back to Piazzale Roma were prominent an easy to follow.
The hotel itself is sheer Venetian elegance and hospitality. A family treasured/ rebuild/ reproduction from yesteryear. Classy Venetian decor, good size room , comfortable bed, quality fittings through out make this a hotel to relax, feel pampered and secure.. as I was travelling alone.. a priority met. Continental breakfast is more than adequate...
Would totally reccommend the hotel.. once the exterior sign is in place ..Hotel will be easily recognised.. .. Hotel only has Street number above black wrought iron gate/ door , and name on intercom at this stage. A very minor issue. (Many thanks to Stefano..).

Room Tip: cannot foresee any issues with any selection
