We arrived late Sunday evening and got a bit lost but luckily a friendly local waiter directed us down the dark, spooky alleys and we finally found ca Formosa! The lovely local worked at a fab resturant called carluccio's a 2 min walk from hotel that sold lovely food for very reasonable prices so worth a visit! Once we finally found it, we then had to go to a different place first to get the key and after several flights of stairs we reached our room(not sure how anyone of poor physical health or the elderly would cope- its a long way up and no lift) The room was perfectly ok, a little cold as the air conditioner was broken and stayed constantly on the whole time we were there! The room had an ensuite, tv and fridge with a reasonable mini bar with water, soft drinks and small beers ranging from 1.50 euros to 3. The room was basic but very, very clean and cleaned every morning by polite but discrete staff you rarely saw anyone around and Were pretty much left to ur own devices which was fine by us!! Breakfast was a bit samey but fine for a short break. Hotel was in an Ideal location and Venice is fantastic!!! Fron the airport (Marco Polo) You need to get a water bus (Alilaguna company) which was 15 euro pp each way on the Blue line to San Zacharria and then a short walk to hotel (take a good map as all roads look the same!) Like I said Venice is an amazing place but can be very pricey so take spends and stick to back streets for cheaper meals ranging from 50 euros to 70 for two people including wine. Everything is seriously overpriced in main tourist places like San Marco but the beautiful church and bell tower is a must visit! Overall ca Formosa is an acceptable and very good value accommodation choice for a short break if u want clean, quiet and no frills and February was the perfect time in my opinion to visit the most romantic, unique place I've ever been! We will be back!!
