I absolutely recommend this charming guesthouse/B&B. Having spent 4 nights , I enjoyed the great location close to Rialtobridge but calm situatated in the back yards or towards the side canal. My favorite room was with a spectacular painted high ceiling, spacious and mixed modern renovated and respectful guarded old mural paintings. B moll no direct window which might be a problem during hot summers.Breakfast was nice. Lovely attentive staff. The owner gave us precious insides for sight seeing. Highly recommend the place.
Ca Amadi is lovely and very Venetian. It was previously owned by Marco Polo's family and Marco himself may have once lived there. It's near the Rialto bridge, but hard to find - in a courtyard down a narrow street. We printed instructions for getting there from both the train station and the Rialto bridge on Google Maps. This was a big help. Due to the overwhelming number of tourists trying to take the vaporetto, we ended up walking there from the train station which took about 20 minutes. The hotel is on the second floor and has no elevator. Our room was beautiful and the bathroom was modern and elegant. Breakfast was delicious. Great restaurants in easy walking distance.
Very good location. Note that you HAVE TO use google maps to move around on Venice, streets are confusing and often “one way”. Hotel is quiet. Our room unfortunately was facing neighboring buildings wall which meant there was no natural light or any view. You can hear neighbors stomping above but thats a case in many places. Venice is old. AC in a room was set on 21C max which meant it was chilly in October:( we used extra blankets on bed. Breakfast is very tasty BUT be there early or you will miss out on hot eggs and fresh juice... Reception is NOT manned 24/7 but its a b&b so if you need a staff all the time you might have to look elsewhere. Plenty of cafes, restaurants, quick bites around.
Rooms were very clean and comfortable. You definitely felt you were in a Venetian home...not a hotel. The staff provided excellent directions to the hotel from a variety of access points. Hotel is just a 5 min walk from Rialto Bridge water bus stop....also a former home of Marco Polo if you are a history buff. Breakfast was good and plentiful but hot items were hard to come by if you were not at breakfast early. AC in the room was not working well.
Ca'Amadi is situated very near Rialto Bridge but the narrow streets that take you there look quite dark/suspicious but as long as you follow small Ca'Amadi signs you'll find your way. I slept very well as the room with a view to the inner yard was very quiet and the mattress good. I liked many different kind of fresh fruit and juice that was available during breakfast. Breakfast starts quite late, at 8:30ish. Ca'Amadi gives one bottle of mineral water daily for free which is nice. There was also a box of local cookies as a gift. Customer service varied hugely depending who was at the reception. Some were very, very helpful and some not. NB! Often there's no one at the front desk, just a telephone number. If/when something goes wrong, it would be nice to hear an apology...…
