Enter the world of old Venice! This is one of the most peaceful, characteristic and "real" corners of the ancient Sestiere of Cannaregio with much local colour to be had. It's a peaceful neighbourhood to take cover from the tourist crowd while being close to the action of the main cultural, historical and artistic attractions - Rialto Bridge is an easy walk and Piazza San Marco is a 10 min walk away through picturesque Venice - part of the fun is discovering the local shops as you walk through the alleyways.
Ca' d'Oro is a three stars hotel overlooking the Rio Ca' Dolce but the main entrance is in Corte Barbaro. The good news is there is a lift! Downstairs is a lounge space to relax and socialise; and there is an internet point. This area amalgamates with the breakfast room where you have your buffet breakfast.
My Room was a double superior with private bathroom with hairdryer, direct telephone, satellite tv, wi-fi connection, safebox and airconditioning. It had a parquet floor and was agreeable, clean and functional with furniture in authentic venetian style. No complaints with anything.
Some reviews have said that the hotel isn't easy to find so here are some directions which I hope will be helpful. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from a vapaoretto stop.
If you are arriving by car - park your car in one of the garages in Piazzale Roma, the bus and car terminal or Tronchetto (on the right at the end of the Ponte della Liberta that connects Venice to the mainland). Take water shuttle line 1 (from Tronchetto, take line 82 to Piazzale Roma and change there) and get off at fermata Ca' d'Oro. Follow the directions I have put under By Train/Ca' d'Oro Stop.
By train - Take shuttle line 1 in front of the Santa Lucia station towards San Marco/Rialto and get off at the Ca' d'Oro stop. Take Calle della Ca' d'Oro. Turn right onto Strada Nuova. Continue to the first open stretch, Campo dei Santissimi Apostoli. Turn left onto Salizada del Pistor. Continue for 100 metres until you pass Corte Barbaro on your left. You'll now see the hotel.
By plane - from the Venice Marco Polo Airport (13 km)
Via water - From the airport's dock, take the Alilaguna motorboat, blue line, and get off at Fondamenta Nuove. The hotel is a 5 minute walk. Head away from the stop and continue along the street. Take Salizada dei Spechieri. Go straight. Cross Campo dei Gesuiti and then cross the bridge. Continue along Salizada Seriman. Then turn right and then take an immediate left over the bridge. Travel down the length of Calle dei Spezier. Continue straight on Rio tera Santi Apostolio. Turn right on Calle del Tagiapiera. Take your first left at the end of the calle and you'll see Corte Barbaro and the hotel.
Via land - Take ACTV bus nr. 5 or one of the shuttle buses for Venice. Get off in Piazzale Roma (the bus and car terminal) and follow the directions I have put above under By Train/Ca' d'Oro stop.
From the Treviso airport Canova (33 km)
Take one of the shuttle buses for Venice. Get off in Piazzale Roma (the bus and car terminal) and follow the directions I have put above under By Train/Ca' d'Oro stop.
Top tip: eat and drink where the locals do, you will be overcharged in a tourist restauraunt, but have the time and meal of your life when you go off the tourist trail and eat with and meet locals. Oh, and for those saddos among you - there is a mcdonalds about 5 mins walk away too.... !!
