Hotel Caneva
Ranked #344 of 385 Hotels in Venice
Reviewed January 10, 2010

The hotel was located on a small street that can easily be missed especially when you arrive in the evening. From the outside, it is a very quaint typical Venetian hotel. When we first arrived, the receptionist was quite rude to us. It wasn't a nice hotel greeting!

Lobby: Sometime the receptionist or the inn keeper smokes.

Room: Very thin walls. It can get pretty noisy and we heard *everything*. The bed is what you can expect from a budget hotel. Clean.

Shared Bathrooms: Make sure you test the hot water first. Some bathrooms are labeled "Shower" but it has no hot water. The bathrooms are clean but very tiny.

Breakfast: We stayed there for 3 nights and we had the same breakfast everyday - Bread, jam, butter and cereals.

Overall: It's an OK place to stay if you're looking for budget-clean.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed at the hotel for the weekend on arrival we were very pleased to find our hotel right in the middle of everything, two minutes walk from the Rialto Bridge and St Marks Square. Our room was a good size, very clean and had a beautiful canal view. The staff were very relaxed and friendly and the price was very reasonable, i would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to explore all the sights based in a central and vibrant location

We spent 3 nights in room 30 which we requested after reading a previous review. We really felt and heard the real Venice. The staff were very friendly. The room was basic but very clean. We found it central to all we had to see in Venice. Would recommend the hotel for travellers on a budget.

Hotel Caneva was what I expected. Venice is an expensive city, so finding something affordable is tricky. I liked the location of this hotel a lot. It's only a few minute walk from the Rialto bridge and hence the realto stop on the waterbus line. There are a lot of restaurants and bars close by as well. Breakfast was typical, though yogurt would have been nice. We had a room without a bathroom...shower and bathroom were just down the hall and we never had to wait (though I don't think there were many other people staying here). Our room was right on one of the canals, so we had fun watching the boats go by, though it was noisy at times. No free wi-fi at this location.

This is a great hotel for the budget traveller. The staff were good. The hotel was spotless. And the location is handy. However, guests arriving in late at night should note that the walls are thin so be considerate and keep the noise down.

we stayed at this hotel and I assure you it´s great...It has a good location, close to san Marco and to Rialto...A bit far from the rail station but nothing that a vaporetto(boats used in Venice) won´t solve...The staff is great too...
