Overlooking a picturesque Venetian canal, just a stroll from St. Mark's Square, Ca' dei Conti is in the heart of Venice, on a striking corner which is typical of the city. In the immediate vicinity are the magnificent Santa Maria Formosa Church, the prestigious Querini Stampalia museum and library, San Zaccaria Church and the famous Bridge of Sighs. Its proximity to Riva degli Schiavoni, with its many vaporetto stops, allows you to easily reach all the most beautiful islands of the Venetian lagoon, such as Murano, Burano and Torcello.
posizione tranquilla, ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo, personale gentile, colazione varia e curata.Comment of M. Maria Antonietta , Italy the 2015-10-24
"Beware when booking this hotel."
Let me first start with the positives- Brilliant location, comfortable bed, lovely breakfast. But unfortunately that is it. Negatives- (1)The staff were very cold and unfriendly, sure our questions were answered but no one there seemed at all happy (with the exception of the two breakfast staff ladies) No welcoming smiles or Bongiorno's and to me this is a must if you are working in the hospitality industry in Italy. We after all the ones who are providing you with your employment. (2) Upon arrival with a voucher that clearly stated accommodation in Ca Dei Conti Hotel purchased through our travel agent and therefore through a wholesaler. We were given our key and ushered a good 100metre down the Canal to what I could only explain as a "unbranded, overflow hotel" by the name of Palazzo Conti Querini. This hotel reminded me off an abandoned hotel, with no reception area, sad dusty artificial flowers, and strange pieces of furniture place here and there with no order or purpose. Upon arriving back after dark the entire place was also In complete darkness with sensor lights coming on as you walked through the corridors and then turn off again after a brief moment or two. The room was tiny and nothing like the photos shown on Ca dei Conti's website ( maybe that is because it isn't Ca Dei Conti!!!!) the room smelt horrible and it took more than a day with the windows left open to air it out. The bathroom was of adequate size ( possibly half the size of the total room area )but had no shower curtain, so every shower resulted in a very Venetian feeling bathroom with Canals of water running both inside and out. My husband and I are not the type of travellers to complain and will always look for positives in all situations and so I must say we loved Venice and will definitely return again one day but I am sorry to say it won't be to this Hotel as we felt their use of an "over flow hotel" both deceitful and total inappropriate. If it is necessary to have an "Over flow hotel" during the busy times of the year, ( October- our time of visit, not exact peak season) you should ensure rooms are of the same standard as that shown on your website or offer these smaller rooms at a reduced rate. So my message to fellow travellers - be warned.
"Off the beaten path but in the middle of it all"
We loved this place so much we stayed an extra night. Close to St.Marks square but not in the crowds. Really sweet rooms with excellent breakfasts. The staff was super helpful and friendly. Solid value.
"35th Anniversary. "
This was a lovely hotel. Great location. After a day we could find our way around. Our junior suite was beautiful. Big staircase to bedroom so need to be able to handle that. Beautiful bathroom. Nice breakfast daily but we were on second floor and room literally opened to dining room. This was never a problem. Never heard noise because our bedroom was up the stairs. Arrived by water taxi and the stop was right at the hotel.
"Clean and welcoming."
Staff were very welcoming. Felt a bit awkward we didn't have any cash to tip straight away. Initial room was small but adequate. Due to maintenance on first room, second room was larger and on two levels! Quirky. Breakfast was good. Typical continental ham,cheese, croissants, but also a small selection of cereals , fruit and yoghurts. Cooked was scrambled egg, hot dog sausages and very thin bacon.
"Good location but dated "
The good news is that we got a vaporetto right to the hotel - 80 euros from Santa Venezia train station. The hotel has 2 parts though. The one part has the reception area, and then there's an annex where we had our room. I didn't like it. The room was dated, and breakfast was served right outside our room for the guests staying in the annex. There is free wifi which the kids loved. The hotel is only a few minutes from St Marks Square and there's lots of restaurants within a few minutes walk. There's lots of character in this area. We were also able to take the vaporetto from outside the annex - it helps when u have young children n big bags!
