Having researched many hotels in Venice through various websites, I always cross check with tripadvisor because on the whole trip advisor travellers are, in my experience always right! This hotel/reviews from fellow travellers did not dissapoint. This was a special trip for my boyfriends 30th birthday so decided against any budget accomodation. The Domina Home is beautiful inside, very boutiquey with lovely rooms and we felt very safe here and walking back in the evening.
If arriving from the airport by waterbus - use the orange line and get off at stop called San Stae.
This was the one part of the trip I hadn't thought about and our map didnt have all the street names - make sure in advance you know on your map where this is. However after buying a new map it was easy to find.
Venice is beautiful however I think on arrival if you don't have a map you could be walking through the streets and over bridges and get totally lost.
The walk from San Stae stop to Domina was about 5 minutes so those travelling with luggage will not walk far. You can buy your ticket for the waterbus at the airport after you have collected your bags. A return ticket we got was 27 euros each. San Stae was the 2nd stop and it took about 40 minutes - Amazing way to enter Venice by boat! You could get private water taxis but these were well over 100 euros!!
The location was perfect being in Santa Croce - I wanted to avoid being in the hub near Rialto as it was beginning of the season and it was swarming with tourists.
This location is perfect because you can either walk pretty much everywhere or at the end of the street to Domina Home - is the vaporetto stop called "Riva De Biasio" which you can hop on and travel down the Grand Canal - there is no ticket office thought at this stop so either buy your tickets before from a shop or walk to a stop where this is ticket office. We were told you could buy on board but there was nowhere doing this. Fines if you havent got a ticket are apparently pretty steep.
Overall lovely, friendly, helpful staff and we had bed and breakfast which lovely - an assortment of breads, cereals, eggs etc - was from 8-10am which meant you didnt need to get up early to catch it!!
A beautiful hotel off the beaten track but yet very central. :) Happy Travels!
- 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
