“Excellent location. Decent hotel”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We stayed here for two nights in July. It seems like a comfortable place to stay for a couple of nights. The rooms are small but not cramped. The shower cubicle however is rather tiny, and it is difficult for a person of average built to take a shower without banging your arms against the cubicle doors. Wifi is available in the rooms too although signal is weak. Breakfast is basic-just coffee and a bread basket. The staff at the front desk are warm and were helpful with directions and our other queries. Also, there is no elevator to the fifth floor of the hotel so if you have a room on that floor you are going to have to carry all your heavy luggage on your own up the flight of stairs. The best thing about the hotel is how close it is to the San Marco Per (water bus station) as well as the St Mark's basilica and square. The hotel is located right in the middle of all the action and easily locatable.

We recently stayed 3 nights at the Casanova Hotel and would not return. It is in an excellent location - no question about it. Rooms are clean but our shower had mold in the corners. Yuck. Beds were hard - pillows even worse. The Hotel Violin D'Oro, right down the street, is 100 times nicer for the same price. Most disappointing to us was the front desk staff (all men) who just weren't friendly. We were treated as tourists - not special guests. At $400+/night, I expected more. The breakfast is weak compared to other hotels in this price range. (no fresh fruit, for example). Can't argue with being in the center of everything - and it wasn't at all loud - just not a warm, friendly place to stay. Keep looking.

nice beautiful villa .. excellent host .. free bicycles .. great breakfast .. decent prices for an expensive place .. Alessandro made us feel at home .. had triple room with an extra bed for our children ... the garden is a perfect place to chill out ... clean, friendly typical pensione which we would defintely recommend to anybody who wish to stay away over priced venice hotels and enjoy beautiful Lido ... travelling to Venice is quite easy .. take vaporetto nr 1 ... get out in Giardini for the most beuatiful cafe " Paradiso ' over the world .. then walk down to Marco Polo or finish the scenic route until mid-Venice and get lost in narrow streets

Hotel Casanova is very nicely located right behind San Marco square, making it easy for you to explore the city in any direction.
It has a very nice and tastefully decorated lobby, but rooms suffer from the lack of character.
Our room looked bland with white walls and white curtains, and didn't feel like Venice at all. The hotel could benefit strongly from at least a bit of extra color and local flavor.
Brekfast is quite spartan.
The staff, however, is extremely polite and helpful.

We stayed here for an anniversary weekend in Venice so a special occasion. The hotel room we had was clean, comfortable and a small balcony overlooking the narrow streets with a sea view. Breakfast was a small continental basket and more than satisfactory. The staff were helpful and spoke good English. You're paying for the location here which is excellent, San Marco is literally a moment away. This hotel is absolutely fine and we would stay again and would pay the €260 for the same experience.

Casanova Hotel has a perfect location. Near to everything in Venice. It is also easy to come and go from there, as the Alilaguna and Vaporetto stop are near. Out of season theprice is Ok, but in high season it's far to high!

We have stayed twice here and besides having the perfect location to Piazza San Marco and the traghetto stop to and from the airport, the hotel has nice, clean rooms, a good shower and a small fridge to have eg some prosecco. The breakfast could be better, though.
