“A stylish, well-priced gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

This was our third visit to Ca'Pisani - it continues to please and for Venice deliver great value.

Yes, it was the first "design hotel" in Venice - opened in 1999 or so - but it's aging very gracefully. The baths still look and function extremely well. The mix of deco and contemporary is stylish and doesn't look dated (traveled with 2 high-end designers who agreed). The building is beautifully restored. The owners have great art from the 20's to the present.

Some ding the staff. I can't agree. The front desk team is professional and charming (with low turnover), the housekeepers pleasant and through. The breakfast staff does seem to turn over, so they can get a little overwhelmed in high season.

Unless you want to be overwhelmed by day-trippers or on the water, the location is perfect. Just behind the Accademia - so you are convenient to multiple vaporetto stops, about 20 minute walk from St. Marks and virtually no one ventures past the Accademia, therefore, it's a quiet, low-key and extremely pleasant place to sit outside for b'fast or a drink.

Finally, for Venice I find it fairly priced compared to similar properties.

Room Tip: Standard rooms are small by American standards. Upgrading to a superior is worth the minor increase...

We traveled through Italy for 10 days and this hotel was by far the best one we stayed at. The rooms were beautifully appointed and totally up to date. The service was also excellent from the front desk to the dining room to the maid service. I would definitely recommend this to anyone going to Venice. We stayed at cheaper hotels elsewhere but didn't mind paying more for this place because it was totally worth it. The management on Friday evening hosted a happy hour which was an unexpected treat and just added to our thorough enjoyment of staying here. It's right behind the Academia building close to the vaporetto (water bus) stop making it a convenient location for getting around.

What can I say, this hotel was superb. The place is decorated interestingly with Art Deco pieces. The rooms are very comfortable, stylish, and with lovely details. The turn down service is good. The staff are excellent, polite, friendly and very helpful.THe breakfast is really good, good choice of cereals, lots of fresh fruit, lovely meats and cheeses, and superb freshly made cakes every day.
The position is perfect for Venice, away from the hoards of daily visitors, near the vaporetto stops, and lots of good eating places nearby too. Just ask for advice form the front desk!
Cant recommend it enough!

What a great find and simply can't say enough about why you should stay here. Venice is a small small place, and with the water ways and alleyways, everything is easily connectable and accessible. However, this place just takes it to another level.

Firstly, it's on a quieter part of Dorsoduro. Why's this great? Because you're on the quieter side of the Grand Canal, still a 15min walk from San Marco Square, etc and a 2 min walk from the Academia. There's also one of only a couple of foot bridges across the Grand Canal from the Dorsoduro side to San Marco 50 meters down the road. Being on this quieter side, you have easier access to the restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and walkways through Dorsoduro and San Polo. It gets you away from the 'Benidorm' feel of San Marco!!

The hotel definitely deserves it's star rating. From check-in with a very helpful front desk staff who helped identify a number of places we asked for and then made his own recommendations to the pleasant surprise of the the quality of the interior and the rooms themselves. We had a 2nd floor room with a corner view. This is great as you get a view down to the Grand Canal from one of the windows. Rooms are relatively large , bright and with a seperate wardrobe and storage area. Nice when space is limited in Venice rooms in general. All your amenities are hidden away well in the main bedroom area. Bathrooms are large with a jacuzzi / shower and all amenities you'd expect available here.

The quality of the finish is high and actually compared to other hotels we've stayed at with higher ratings, right on comparison.

WiFi is free and available for as many devices as you need. Definitely get breakfast included. Like most hotels in Italy, it's mainly continental but the quality isn't an issue. There's no compromise on the quality of cheeses or meats, the fruit is fresh and not only tinned juices and coffees fresh and too.

The staff can't be more helpful, from organising water taxi's to make recommendations to places you might want to visit based on what you've told them you like or visited already. It's nice to get away from the usual tourist jargon you hear when walking around Venice.

We'd definitely comeback here as the place simply makes your trip to Venice enjoyable. Not once did we walk past another hotel and think, wish we'd stayed here or let's look this place up. The place sets you up nicely for a full day of site seeing, and gives you the ideal place to comeback to late at night once you've done your last vino bianco.

Room Tip: Room 29, it has a corner view!

This was an excellent place to stay, great location, quiet, clean rooms with AC and very helpful staff. We were met by the porter at the ferry dock, hot and tired. He took care of our bags and guided us to the hotel (very short walk). The staff provided us with dinner reservations, maps, a city guide and tourist info. The buffet breakfast (included) was very good as well.
We will definitely return to the Ca' Pisani next time we visit Venice !

I spent a week at this hotel on my own, visiting Venice for the first time. I was pleased with my room and the service in general, although the reception staff were a little brusque at times, and the food I had was good. The hotel's recommendations for dinners were invaluable and the location of the hotel was absolutely perfect for me - moments from the Accademia bridge in one direction and from the canal-side overlooking Giudecca Island on the other. I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to friends/family.

This is a wonderful boutique hotel, with beautifull art deco decor, very comfortable and stylish rooms and superb staff. If, in notoriously difficult Venice, that was not enough, add a great central location a minute's walk from the Accademia Gallery and excellent value for money. We didn't eat more than breakfast in the hotel restaurant but I am sure the food will be great as well. There are are pavement tables to enjoy a drink or a coffee outside and the location is just that crucial 100 yards away from the hubbub.

So rarely now do I come across somewhere with 5 star TA ratings that deserve them. Ca' Pisani deserves 6 stars. An absolute gem!

Room Tip: All the rooms we saw seemed to achieve the same almost jaw-dropping art deco stylishness.
