“Great hotel & great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

This was our first trip to Venice and Ca'Pisani was recommended to us. The hotel is in a wonderful location, close to the Accademia water taxi stop on the grand Canal. It is far away from the crowds and in a great area. The hotel is a gem in more ways than one. First location, second the breakfast is amazing. Everything you would want along with great staff. The front desk is very helpful and friendly. Always taking time to give us answers to our many questions. They have a balcony area that over looks the city. A great place to watch the sun go down or to just relax with a cup of coffee or glass of wine. The amenities are very nice, the bed was a bit hard for me but that is my only complaint. There is a mini fridge in the room, coffee and tea available in the common areas on most of the floors. The hotel is very stylish and quiet. I hope to return to Venice in the future and will definitely use this hotel again.

We stayed here For 6 days September 2013.
It's location is perfect, only 200m from the Alliaguna stop at Zettera.
Which means you can wheel your luggage at the airport to the water taxi, get on and only have a 200m transfer at your destination.
You are located 200m from the grand Canal on one side and Accademia bridge on the other.
The staff are really friendly and helpful.
The reception gave us excellent restaurant recommendations.
They also sold us tickets for the Biennale at discounted prices(almost 50% cheaper than the price at the event).
They also managed to book us and sell tickets for the opera at the Palazzo.
I had tried online earlier and was informed the tickets had sold out.
The room was stylish. Wonderful shower over the birth, good storage. Fridge in the room.
A pleasant outside dining area
Breakfast was plentiful and you could even make fresh orange juice, as there was a juicer.
My only gripe is that inside dining place is a bit dark and not as stylish as the rest of the accommodations.
Never used the rooftop terrace.
There is free access to a gym 200m away, but we never used it.
The hotel is so well located, we only used the water bus to leave the island, as everywhere was so easily walkable.
We would definitely use this place again.

We are frequent visitors to Venice but had never previously stayed in Dorsoduro. It won't be our last because this hotel is a gem. It is situated equidistant from the Zattere and Accademia vaporetto stops - the former conveniently being on the Alilaguna route from the airport at 15€ pp each way - and only a short walk or boat trip from the crowds of Piazza San Marco. By contrast, Dorsoduro is never very busy during the day and is even quieter in the evening. The Guggenheim, Santa Maria della Salute and the Scuola Grande of San Rocco are all less than a 10 minute walk away and the hotel virtually backs on to the Accademia gallery. There are better (and much cheaper) bars, restaurants and cafes in this part of the city than you will find in the vicinity of St. Mark's.

There were many things we liked about Ca Pisani in addition to its great location and very few we could criticise. During our 4 night stay, we encountered 3 or 4 different people on the reception desk and every one of them offered a great concierge service. Whether it was making restaurant reservations, organising trips to the islands or arranging a water taxi to the airport, they were unfailingly helpful and courteous. (On arrival, we were also given a proper guide book as opposed to the usual cheap map filled with adverts and we used this throughout our stay.) Housekeeping was similarly proficient and unobtrusive; we liked the little nets of fruit pastilles left on the pillow each evening.

Ca Pisani was one of the first design hotels in Venice and whilst some of its 'state of the art technology' is now old hat, the rooms are of reasonable size, well-furnished and equipped including a safe, 2 (!) TVs, mini-bar, sufficient hanging and storage space. Ice and coffee-making facilities were available in the 2nd floor lobby. The bathroom was a good size, finished in marble and chrome, with a good multi-jet shower and a jacuzzi bath-tub. A few criticisms: the bed was hard and quite uncomfortable, the air conditioning a bit erratic and a right-handed person would need to be a contortionist to use the toilet roll holder in the bathroom. All rooms have free and reliable Wi Fi. The public areas of the hotel are attractively furnished with Art Deco antiques and curios. The roof terrace offers great views of the Venetian skyline (and of the vast and hideously inappropriate cruise ships making their way down the Giudecca Canal at the end of the street) and there is seating outside the hotel where you can sip your spritz and watch the world go by.

We had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful hotel in late July. After spending a week in Croatia we wanted to extend our layover in Venice to three days. It was a great decision as the weather was spectacular and we were able to explore all of Venice from the central location of Pisani. While I had heard the rooms were quite small as is the case for many hotels in Europe, in actual fact the room was very luxurious though compact. While just around the corner from Accademia, it was peaceful and within convenient walking distance to major sights and local restaurants. The staff were very professional, helpful and courteous. The morning breakfast buffet was superb to the point we only had a very light lunch. Lots of great art deco touches such as the coffee trays inside the tables or the furnishings throughout. We will definitely recommend and return!

We actually stayed here a couple of years ago one August but I didn't know about Tripadvisor then.
The hotel was so close to the waterfront we nearly walked past it when arriving. Absolutely loved our stay - room was stylish & comfortable. Breakfast buffet was fantastic. Roof terrace was relaxing. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

Piazza San Marco was only a 20 minute walk away. I also recommend visiting the Accademia - astonishing works of art.

If you want a trip on a water taxi, for the experience, the hotel offers a courtesy water taxi to Murano. Your own guide will then take you to see a glass demonstration (& their showroom!). A water taxi will then take you back, but we preferred to take a look around the island and see some more glass so we got the water bus back (6.50 euros). We had gone on an excursion (pre-booked on internet) to Murano the day before & were disappointed that it was a hurried affair. The factory/showroom the hotel arranged for us to see was much better, higher quality & no pressure!

We were amazed at how easy it was to walk all round Venice, & if you feel you can manage a walk to the 'top' along the Fondamenta Nuova, there is a great restaurant there called Al Alvise. In the evening it was filled with Venetians - we were the only english-speakers there - it was far enough away from tourist hotspots in the evening, once the water bus service had returned tourists to whence they came, to become a local.

Hotel is very convenient by Academia Bridge, and Vaparetto station. Rooms are excellent, with tall
ceilings and modern decor. Very quiet area, and hotel breakfast is to a good standard.
Staff were very kind and helpful. Wifi is free for certain period.
Would definitely stay again. Best to deal direct.

Room Tip: If you want views, these are limited, but a few look down walkway to Grand Canal. A/C units are goo...

dear 2Wayfarers,
thank you very much for your nice comments. the entire staff and I are looking forward welcoming you again in the future.
I would also like to point out that the wi-fi is free for the entire stay of our guests: the small machine providing usernames and passwords (compulsory in Italy) is just set to have a certain validity: 2 hours (we usually give these tockets to bar guests), 2 days and 5 days. but for people staying longer of course we will be delighted to issue more tickets. and they are all free...we just ask to our guests if they wish to leave a 1 euro coin in a 'piggy bank' to devolve to 'Emergency', whose leader, Gino Strada is doing a lot to help civilians in countries devasted by wars.
thank you very much again, then, and please do not hesitate to get in touch with me directly in the future.
all the best,
marianna serandrei

Really enjoyed staying here. This was our second trip to Venice as we were were here for the Biennial - our last experience was a very small, dark, basic hotel near the Rialto Bridge - The Ci Pisani made a welcome and refreshing change. We decided to stay in an area we had previously 'discovered' and booked the Ca Pisani based on Tripadvisor recommendations. We were not disappointed. This was a relaxed, friendly hotel which was beautifully presented. The staff were professional and helpful if we required assistance. The room was light and airy and a reasonable size by Venice standards. My only two niggles (and they were 'only' very small niggles) - the wardrobe was in a space sited under the stairs, which was a little difficult to get in and out of as my husband and myself are both 6ft tall! and there was only a wall dispenser with a basic hair/body wash (from Lush) in the shower. This product contained Parabens so bring your own toiletries! (Note to Ci Pisani - some good quality bath/shower products would have been much nicer with separate hair and body wash please). The room was clean, with robes and slippers provided and had a view of the rooftops - even from the shower. The rooftop garden was a great facility to enjoy a drink or coffee after a long day. We were opposite the steam room but didn't use it, therefore i am unable to comment on it. The breakfasts were good with a range of continental style foods to suit the wide range of nationalities visiting - it was the first time i had had nut cake for breakfast too! - delicious The staff here were pleasant, efficient and made great coffee :) The ONLY negative thing I would say about this hotel was it's association to it's sister hotel called 'La Carvella'. We decided to eat (on the Ca Pisani's recommendation) at La Cavella restaurant one evening. This 'association', in our experience and opinion, is not doing the Ca Pisani any favours. The food at La Carvella was unappetizing, boring, quite corporate and bland and the staff were verging on the pompous. I have had much better quality food in both the Riviera (just around the corner from Ci Pisani - excellent food and service) and from a small, local Venetian style restaurant called al vecio Marangon which was also excellent and less than half the price, even with our discounts (10% as we were Ci Pisani customers and a refund on the bland - in fact inedible, starter). Maybe Ci Pisani should review its association with La Cavella and team up with a more creative, exciting restaurateur . Apart from this, our stay was great. We would highly recommend this hotel, good price by European standard for a 'boutique style' hotel and good facilities, great location and one where we could relax. Thank you Ci Pisani.

Room Tip: We had room 32 :)

dear Deleggi,
thank you very much for your review which I read a few days ago. before answering, though, I wanted to get some useful infos regarding the soap, and this is the reason why it took some time.
well, you were very happy about your stay, and this makes me and all the staff very happy, too...: we all hope to have the pleasure welcoming you again in the future.
honestly, I was a little bit surprised by the comment on the soap by 'Lush': in fact, I sent the product to an external laboratory to be examined and they absulutely tranquillized us. according to them, in fact, the components of the specific product we utilise in the soap dispenser in our showers respect the rules decided by EU. I also checked - out of curiosity - the products of another brand we use, and they, too, contain parabens which in Italy (and Europe) are legal. we have chosen a specific product ('Happy Hippy') which can be used for both body and hair, but next time you come and stay with us, please do not hesitate and ask for some shampoo: we will be delighted to give it to you, along with a specific bath foam (with parabens, though).
regarding the comments on 'la Caravella', I am deeply sorry you did not like it: as you can read from the comments, though, including the last ones which have been published in the last few days, clients eating there are usually satisfied about their experience. I do not want to compare the experiences you had in the other two restaurants, because it would be unfair, being three restaurants with completely different characteristics. next time, please ask me and I would be delighted to suggest other places which - I hope - you will like.
all this said, thank you again for the comments, and do not hesitate to get in touch with me in the future.
all the best,
marianna serandrei
