There are some hotels that you just enjoy so thoroughly. Arrival at Ca' Pisani is much like any hotel in Venezia - hectic. Tucked in a quiet little pocket just off the Grand Canal this hotel is initially unassuming. In fact on arrival I was a little underwhelmed, squeezing my way through a tiny reception, past people and luggage. In the chaos of my arrival I missed the details of the charming art deco finishes that I would discover over the following days.
The rooms are beautifully done, though Art Deco is not to everyone's taste, it makes a great balance to the classic Venetian exteriors that surround you. This hotel room is a good size for Venezia and the bathroom is large for such a central location.
The staff are excellent with English widely spoken - ask for help and it will always be given. The restaurant staff were particularly accommodating.
Breakfast on the pedestrian way out the front of the hotel, shaded in the morning sunshine, watching the days traffic pass you by is a delight. A great way to start your day. Keep it relaxed and languid and the chaos on the other side of the grand canal will never get you down.
Don't leave it too late to explore the area around the hotel - great for art lovers! The Academia and Peggy Gugenheim are just so close. It is lovely and easy to explore your way on foot to San Marco over the Ponte Academia but for those so inclined the ferry will have you there in 2 minutes.
Don't leave it to late to check out the rooftop terrace, with a nice vista and some lovely sun beds for an afternoon nap (or spritz).
This is excellent value for this part of the world.
The tv in the room is tiny, which shouldn't be an issue for most as Venezia is on your doorstep. The beds are short and wide and ours had a lovely Art Deco footboard. This could be a problem for taller guests. The bed and pillows were very firm.
A great place to experience Venezia!
