“Nice hotel, inconvenient location.”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Stayed at Hotel Ca Tron during the first week of July. The hotel itself is very nice and the staff is quite friendly. Even though the reception closes at 9pm, they stayed around until we got there because I had emailed them ahead of time telling them that our flight would get to Italy quite late.

However, the hotel itself was a lot farther from Venice than I had thought. It took on average about 45 minutes from Dolo Deposito bus station to Piazzale Roma in Venice, which is quite a lot of time if you only have a few days to spend. The money we saved on the hotel ended up being spent on bus tickets anyway.

Pros:
Very clean, good roomkeeping.
Dolo town is quite lovely and we wouldn't have seen if we hadn't stayed here.
Friendly, accommodating staff.
Hotel felt homey; lobby was very nice.

Cons:
Big mattress was weirdly split in the middle, made it uncomfortable for 2 people.
Pillows were super thin, uncomfortable.
They do not provide duvets, only thin sheets, which made every night very cold.
Far distance from Venice.
Dolo bus deposito is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel, but there is no sidewalk, so one must walk on the bike lane and be very close to cars speeding by.

We loved the quiet locale right on the Brenta canal, nice for walks. Rooms spotless, meticulous housekeeping, staff very gracious and helpful (helping out with bookings, lending us a tom tom, etc.) Very good breakfast with coffee bar. Easy access to Venice and Padua by bus along the canal. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Would certainly recommend.

The couple who own the hotel are just lovely and very kind. They bought me up a slice of cake for my bday :))

Pros: price and nice clean room
Must have the breakfast buffet!
The town Dolo is quaint
Quiet rooms
Good wifi

Cons: the heating was not working
The pillows are as thin as toast
No close shops, only vending machine with crackers/cookies if hungry
Takes 45 mins by bus to town (10 min walk to bus stop)

Keep in mind that Accomodation is not cheap in Venice and you may have to stay out of town for a reasonable price.

Thanks for a lovely stay overall, are you in Australia :)

We couldn't believe the value this place offers. It was so inexpensive compared to anywhere in Venice and it is only about a half hour bus ride away. The place is VERY clean, quiet, and the two ladies behind the counter were so friendly, hospitable and helpful. We loved our stay here. We had a little confusion with the reservation but they did their best and helped us solve it. Dolo is a cool little Italian town as well if you can't get to Venice. Walk around and check it out!

Arrived at this hotel without booking as had to stay overnight before catching ferry to Igoumenitsa. We were made very welcome and were personally shown to our room, how to use everything and when we said we would be leaving before breakfast hours we were asked what we would like for breakfast, it would be prepared for us so that we could keep it in our room fridge overnight.
Less than half an hour from ferry terminals this hotel offers a range of services at very fair prices and we would recommend the hotel to anyone having to stay overnight in Venice.

Room Tip: Two price levels. The lower one is excellent.

Nice clean rooms (although quite small) with bathroom! The service was quite good! (we stayed for 4 nights) The Hotel Ca'Tron in Dolo is a great jumping off point for day trips to the Veneto! The breakfast was good...with a barista making espresso drinks to order! We found out that this hotel is owned by the young gentleman who works the front desk during the day...we were quite impressed! We were interested in visiting some of the Palladio villas in the area, and he was a wealth of information! We would recommend this B and B and would stay here again!

Dolo is 15k from Venice it is a quiet suburban place and if like us you are touring by car this is agood place to stay.
Hotel is small in size - we had a ground floor disabled room and the teenagers had a triple room ( the third bed is a foldaway). Nice friendly staff.
Rooms are well equipped with a small mini bar.
The foldaway bed had a couple of slats come loose on the second night and a replacement was not available, but our mini bar bill was not settled as compensation.
Good hotel, there is always a chance of problems but it is how it is managed that matters.
Nice breakfast.
Bus in to Venice is 5 Euro return and takes 30 minutes and runs twice an hour, bus stop is 300 m from hotel.
