We (mum, dad plus teenage boys) decided to stay away from the city centre and we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice.
Location: The Domina Ca Zusto is a lovely old stone walled building situated literally 1 minute walk from the Grand Canal, 2 minutes from a wide variety of excellent restaurants, 5 minutes from the vaporetta at San Stae, 10 minutes from the buses at P.Roma and about 15 minutes from Ponte Rialto, a fascinating walk through a maze of alley ways. It was hard to spot to start with as it looks like a grand private house from the outside, with no extravagant entrance. The surrounding area was really peaceful and we typically walked around the nearby passages and bridges with only a handful of others for company. At night, all was completely quiet, even with the bedroom windows open, until the 7am bell at the local church!
Facilities: we were very fortunate, and grateful, to be allocated two rooms together on the top floor. These were beautifully appointed with super roof-top views. Our only disappointment was the lack of tea/coffee making facilities. We expected that breakfasts would be minimal but, on the contrary, the options and quantities were generous and delicious. The breakfast room also doubled up as a pleasant lounge and there is a peaceful shaded stone courtyard - very atmospheric.
Staff: the two young ladies who shared reception duties were invariably very helpful, friendly and cheerful - and had excellent English. I only wished I had asked their names. Thank you, anyway!
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel Ca Zusto Venice is an ancient patrician palace of the fourteenth century in a noble and sophisticated style just a few steps from the Grand Canal. Thanks to the skilful conservative renovation, the building has been restored to its former glory, when Venice was a crossroads between East and West. The result is a boutique hotel, unique and innovative from all points of view: from the comfort of which it disposes to the design of the interiors which reaches its highest expression in the only 22 rooms of the hotel. Each one of them is exclusive and unique. High tech equipments integrate themselves within ancient and aristocratic spaces, creating strong contrasts, the true expressive sign of the whole building. Curtains and brocades, precious bedspreads and the ceilings with ancient beams stand out of different tones of color. Everyone clearly feels the inspiration from Byzantine atmospheres. The service is 4 stars, with great attention to each detail and thought to satisfy every desire, in the name of the Italian hospitality. The Hotel Ca Zusto Venice is a little jewel to be lived and discovered in the historic heart of Vernice. From the "Basilica della Salute" on the Grand Canal to the small canals all around the "Teatro La Fenice" or between Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge, a traditional gondola tour is ideal to appreciate some of the most beautiful settings of Venice. ... more less
