Ca' Pagan is a very intimate hotel with just 6 bedrooms but nevertheless operates with the efficiency of a larger hotel with a bigger staff. Reception is open 24 hours and the staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful. We were leaving very early on a Sunday morning before breakfast was due to begin but, without us having to ask, the staff laid out our breakfast early so we wouldn't go hungry!
Breakfast has more variety than other Venetian hotels we have experienced, the room was very comfortable (even though we had opted for the smallest room) and extremely clean everywhere, and our only criticism would be that there is no shower screen, so it is difficult not to flood the bathroom when having a shower. The room had free Wi-Fi, a stocked mini-bar and a safe, as well as lots of electricity sockets (more important than you may think in this age of technology!) and the bathroom has a hairdryer. The only thing missing is an iron.
The English of the staff is excellent, there are English language channels on the bedroom television (if that is important to you), the hotel is air conditioned, there is a courtyard with outdoor seating and the location of the hotel is very central, right by a vaparetto stop and just a few minutes walk from Rialto, Piazza San Marco and other squares with bars, restaurants and excellent gelatarias. Despite its central location, it is positioned on a very quiet street so there is no noise.
Booking was easy and the hotel communicated with us several times before arrival by email, including a weather forecast, so they already made us feel welcome well before we even arrived!
The hotel is very Venetian, with mirrored walls downstairs and fabric walls in the bedrooms, marble floors, wooden beams and lots of Murano glass chandeliers, so we felt we were getting the full Venice experience!
At the time of booking, this hotel was priced in the mid-range of all the hotels that came up on a Hotels.com search but this hotel really couldn't be beaten in terms of service, friendliness, comfort, cleanliness and location, even by somewhere of twice the price.
We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else on future visits to Venice - we have found perfection at Ca' Pagan.
