Venice is a very old town where you wont find anything easily accesible for the handicapped, and this is normal in a place like this one. Hotel is very nice, its location just in front of the Grand Canal allows you to take a taxi...More

We have just returned from a 4 night break. The hotel is lovely, very clean, friendly staff, good choice for breakfast. Only thing missing was facility for making a coffee/tea. The other small point was the positioning of the shower over the bath. It was...More
I brought my mam here as a present. I paid extra for a canal view room (highly recommend). The location is amazing, it is on the grand canal and a 5 minute walk from the Rialto bridge. Restuarants and local shops are close by. Breakfast...More
Wow! We loved staying at San Cassiano! The check in was quick and efficient, our bags were carried up the 3 flights of stairs and deposited in our beautiful room on the 3rd floor. Yes the stairs are steep & yes the building is old...More

We were a little bewildered about this ourselves but after a little research decided that the Alilaguna water taxi was the best (only? cheapest?) way to go. At the Airport ask for directions to the connecting terminal (you should be looking for the orange line/Linea Arancio). There are convenient 'walk-a-lators' which will spare you a long hike! As I recall, a one-way ticket is 15Euros (steep, but so is all of Venice). Get off at the 5th stop (San Stae--the 'conductor' will let you know and help you off-load your bags). The stop is at the open square in front of a church. Cross the square going to your left (Grand Canal behind you) and look for a small iron-railed bridge. That's the starting point to your walk to the hotel. There was a trash barrel just by the bridge with a map of the route to the Ca'Favretto which was very helpful. Take a picture with your cell phone or sketch the map to use as a reference. Watch for landmarks as you go as you will undoubtedly use San Stae as your chief vaporetto stop for the hotel when you tour around the city. Have fun! Get lost! It's a small town and you cant go too far without coming to water eventually. Use the vaporetto (more a 'water subway' than a 'taxi')! Good luck!

Yes, water taxi is the most practical transport from the airport. It will deliver you to the San Cassiano's private landing stage, you can enjoy your welcome drink a few minutes later on the same terrace. Check 'Venice Link' for water taxi details, they do a special rate for arrival / departure transfers. In our case the arrival from the airport was in a shared water taxi but for the departure to the Cruise Port the boat was just for the pair of us.
