“Great location”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Family run hotel with friendly service. A short walking distance from the train station. Very close to the water Bus stop to go down the grand canal to see St Mark square. The restaurant Buchelle recommended by The hotel owner, Alberto was really great, we really enjoyed the seafood pasta there.

Hotel Caprera was a wonderful surprise for our group of eight. People was simpathetic,friendly and helpful.The hotel is near Santa Lucia train station,the self service restaurant Brek and Piazza Roma.We received indications for good restaurants and they called porters to carry our luggage until piazza Roma where we took a taxi to the airport.All the people we had contact were good humour and smiled-that is rare in Italy.The rooms were simple and clean.The only problem is the absence of a lift,but it´s normal in Venice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the first floor.The hotel doesn't have a lift.

I chose this hotel primarily for its proximity to the railway. It is also only a short walk to Realto Bridge and there are plenty of affordable restaurants close by.
The room is small but clean and tidy. Staff were always friendly and courteous. I would recommend for those who favour convenience over luxury.

The good: Staff is friendly and helpful. Hotel is quite near the train station. Clean.

The bad: No A/C in room. Thin walls, we could hear a baby crying downstairs, neighbors talking etc. Beds not so comfortable. Our room was supposedly non-smoking, but there was an ashtray on the desk and I smelled smoke from another room.

All this for 109 euros! You can do better.

Good location as it's few minutes away from the train station.
It's hidden in a quiet street, away from main street; which good for a good night sleep.
Room is clean but the squeaky wooden floor is quite annoying.
The thin blanket is not sufficient to keep you warm at night.
Friendly english speaking staffs.

Wonderful experience! Clean rooms and bathrooms. Good breakfast (please do not expect an American breakfast. In Europe breakfast is cold carbs). Great location (close to the train station and a pleasant and direct walk to St. Marks.) And the people are very friendly. Would recommend to friends and family members not looking to spend very much in this expensive city.

The Caprera is a very nice hotel, not a luxury one but a good relation cost-benefit. The hotel is pretty simple and basic so don't expect much but the hotel rooms are clean and neat, also spacious. The staff is nice and helpful. The breakfast is plain basic but just what you can expect for 5 euros. The hotel is really close to the train station and it has several restaurants, bars and even grocery stores nearby.

If you're looking to spend little on your stay in Venice and have a comfortable place to sleep this is the hotel for you.
