Bed And Breakfast Ca' Luisa
Ranked #123 of 471 Venice B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 July 2013

We found Ca' Luisa to be an excellent place for many reasons, but it's location was great for us. It's central location in the San Marco district made it a great hub for launching off in all directions. Plus, it is easy to find by just taking one street (Calle Bembo),no turns, and crossing just one bridge, from the Rialto Bridge Vaporetto stop; only a five minute walk. (Warning - three are several Rialto stops. Look for Calle Bembo at the last stop in the direction towards San Marco!) Luisa and her husband were very nice and greeted us with a two glasses of Prosecco wine on our arrival. Luisa helped us with the best way to get to our destinations each day. There is a very nice gelato store (Venchi) just at entrance to the hotel. A nice thing to do is get a gelato and then walk past the entrance to Ca' Luisa, about 100', to the end of the street where you can sit at the edge of one of the canals and see the endless trains of gondolas and water taxis going by. It is a quiet respite from the hordes of tourists making their way to San Marco Plaza. The wifi worked well and the continental breakfast in the morning was good too. We did use the air conditioning and it worked fine and cooled the room adequately upon our return each day. We would definitely stay at Ca' Luisa again on a return to Venice.

Clean, comfortable, convenient, and very reasonably priced. The host and hostess are a helpful couple aptly described by another reviewer as "older"--I'd guess in their sixties. They serve you a lovely continental breakfast, which i think much better than a previous reviewer indicated. There was coffee, bread, a pastry, yogurt, a spreadable cheese, butter, jams, juice (that was the weak link), and sometimes, fruit--and once we requested it, more regularly so. The bed was very comfortable. It was early June and we did not need the air conditioning that was available. We appreciated the wifi.

A previous reviewer said it's hard to find. Everything in the labyrinthine streets of Venice is probably hard to find at first. But the host and hostess will provide a phone number to call them.

If street sounds bother you, you will want to get out of San Marco, I think; but we didn't mind, and we appreciated how close we were to the vaporetto at San Zaccharia.

Ca Louisa may not be for everyone, but we loved the comfort and charm of this tiny B&B. only 3 rooms makes this feel like a private apartment. Louisa and her husband check you in, serve breakfast in your room, and clean. Otherwise, they are not present. No matter, things run smoothly. The location is ideal. Hard to find however. I felt like I was at home at Ca Luisa and would definitely return again. A secret gem.

A Great location, literally 3 minutes from St marks Square. The hosts, an older couple Luisa & Bruno were very charming and helpful ( in her broken English)The included breakfast was not fancy but satisfactory. Luisa will give you directions to get there but they may be a little confusing. We arrived by train, but if arriving by bus follow these same directions. Get a vaporetto Line 1 or 2 going towards Rialto bridge. Get off at the Rialto bridge stop. Walk along the grand canal in the same direction the boat was going. Go over ONE small bridge and then take the first street left. Yes I know, it looks like a narrow back alley but trust me. This is Calle de fabbri. Keep going until you cross over one more small bridge. Calle strazze will be the Second( if i remember correctly) street on your right. There will be a Venchi ice cream shop on your left. . Look up on the buildings for the street name. There is a small nameplate on a door just a few feet down calle Strazze. Again, don't be put off by the dark and narrow appearance of this street.It took us 10 minutes to walk from the Rialto vaporetto stop to the B&B. Overall, great value, location

It was hard to find the BB at first as its small and the streets in Venice are kinda confusing.
Great location, minute from St marks square. Very clean and well kept.
Hosts are an old Italian couple: Bruno and Luisa; they were great. Breakfast was adequate; nothing fancy. Bruno brings it to the room for us; and was more than happy to make my husband extra espresso when he asked for it.
Overall, great value, location

Getting there -: the vaporetto from the main stn is #1 but there r 2 # 1's so check at the ticket office outside the station on the right hand side. The stop is just 1 after the Rialto Mercato and the street (small alley) is just smack opposite where you get off. You might not see the street name Calle Bembo because its on the the top right side of the alley wall. Calle Bembo then turns into Calle dei Fabbri, you will walk down this street for about 4 to 5 minutes and will cross 1 bridge. When you see the busy ice cream shop "Venchi" turn right on the street "Calle De La Strazze" its a dark wooden brown door on the left. The name is very small and there is a business card under the doorbell. Good luck !

The B& B is very quaint, clean, comfortable and a really good size. Our room was decorated very well, loved the high ceilings and the wooden beams. The bathroom is also quite huge and all newly renovated. The shower worked great and there was plenty of hot water. The wifi did not work from the bedroom but there was good reception on the couch outside the bedroom door. The breakfast was ok, I don't enjoy too much sugary options at breakfast. But that was really not an issue with us. We stayed 2 nites May 7th & 8th so there was no A/C at this time as per city regulations. This should have been mentioned at the time of booking or on their website. The nites were cool and pleasant so we could leave our windows open.. BUT beware for loud street noise and the uninvited mosquito! We should have worn earplugs and maybe had a mosquito coil and all would have been well. The owners are gracious hosts and were very kind and helpful. I was in touch with Luisa on email from when I made the reservation and her responses were very prompt. I would definitely go back and stay here again ! The location is perfect, just 2 mins away from San Marco Piazza and 5 mins from the Vaporetto stop to get around. My only suggestion is that they could offer a pedestal fan in the room and really that would be perfect when the A/C cannot be used, that way the windows can be shut to keep away the outside noise. Luisa and Bruno do a great job maintaining this beautiful B&B.

Just arrived home after a lovely stay in Venice. Really pleased with this excellently located B&B (within a stone's throw of both the Rialto bridge and St Mark's Sq). Bruno and Patrizia were so accommodating and made our stay very enjoyable. The room was spotless and spacious and breakfast was more than sufficient given the price we paid. Would highly recommend. Only downside was the early morning noise but I expect you would get that in most places around the city.

Overall, can't wait to go again!!
