“The Best Hotel in Venezia”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

+
A small cosy hotel within other buildings, 150 meters from the sea. You will appreciate its comfort and antique luxury. You will be welcome by a nice administrator at the reception at the time of arrival. It is quite normal for mini hotels that the staff leaves the hotel straight after you check in. The interior of room 203 is luxurious: textile walls, the old wooden ceiling, the parquet floor, the antique style furniture, modern wc, jacuzzi, permanently producing heat air conditioner. The famous San Marco square is a five-minutes walk along the narrow streets. The amazing cafe "Alla Bragora" is just around the corner. There you can enjoy super coffee for 1 euro and fresh croissants. If you go further you will find a cafe with delicious spaghetti carbonara at a reasonable price. It is one of the best hotels! A reasonable price contributes to the favorable impression. We would recommend it during your stay in Venice.

The maps shown on Booking.com, GPSme and Yandex maps do not provide a clear notion of the hotel position. In fact it is much more easier to reach the hotel: take a vaporetto, get off at "Arsenale" and then follow Calle de dose close to the shop "Films Murano Glass". Actually it will take you 40 minutes to go from the railway station to the hotel by foot.

The room we were assigned on October 21, 2013 was not in the main building. It was at the end of the alley. The room was not a double we booked. It was for a family of four - a double and two bunk beds. The room did not look like any rooms advertised on the hotel's web site. The bed was very uncomfortable. It squeeked just sitting on it. The bedspread is old and needs a good washing. No conditioner nor shampoo just soap.. No small wash cloth to use when showering. The room is noisy from pigeons living in the alley above the room on window sills. Free wi-fi but not in the room. Wi-fi is available only in the very tiny entrance at the guest registration desk. There's seating only for two people using the Internet. Others will have to stand.

Room Tip: You'll pay more money but the junior suite on the 3rd floor - room #305 is most likely your best...

Myself and my partner stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. It was absolutely perfect for our trip. The hotel is small and cosy but the rooms are spacious and very fancy!
The staff were very pleasant. One gentlemen even gave us his umbrella when it was raining which were so thankful for as it was typical treacherous Venice rain for one day of our visit.
The hotel is situated in a perfect area, which Is about a 10 minute walk from st marks square. There is a lovely resteraunt about 15 seconds round the corner and a bakery about 30 seconds walk from the hotel.
We are used to quite luxurious hotels, so I wouldn't rate well if it wasn't worth it! The hotel itself is more like a B&B so there isn't always someone at the desk but if you ask the cleaners that are always pottering around they are more than happy to make someone aware that you need assistance.
The rooms are typically authentic venetian styled. They are cosy and beautifully decorated. The bathrooms however are very modern with jacuzzi style baths!
If I were ever to have the opportunity to visit Venice again I would definitely want to stay here.
The only thing I will say is it was a little difficult to find. The directions on the website are not exactly correct. It didn't take long, but was just a little more confusing that what we expected.
All in all a beautiful little hotel which made our stay in Venice even more wonderful.

The location of the hotel is excellent within about 10 minutes walk of St. Marks Square, few minutes walk from vaparetto stops, but in a quiet neighbourhood where the local residents live, which was full of character. We walked everywhere from it and rarely had to use a vaparetto after arriving.
We arrived by train and took the number 1 vaparetto. It does take some time to get there but it is a great tour of venice along the way and worth it for the great location. If you follow the directions on their website and print off their map, you will find it with no or little difficulty (unless maybe you are in the dark). It is on a tiny little alleyway but we learned most of venice is on tiny little alleyways. I knew what to expect of the hotel location and welcome from the reviews on this site and therefore was not surprised and had no issues with it. The manager/owner called me the day of arrival to ask what time we were arriving. We got there early evening and were let in remotely via the intercom, room keys on the desk, and details about breakfast and wifi etc and a map. Grand. Really that is all I needed. As per other reviews there is not someone there on-site throughout the day and night but it is a very small hotel so I wouldn’t expect there to be and I knew what I was booking. If you want full service and 24 hr info, then I suggest you stay in a larger, more expensive hotel which can provide 24 hour service. This is more akin to a small guesthouse.The owner/manager was always there in the morning at breakfast and checkout time if we had any queries and there was a number to call anytime. He was friendly and spoke very good English.
The hotel and rooms are as it looks in their pictures – venetian style rooms and building but modern bathrooms. The room was dark as it is on a tiny alleyway. The free wifi worked in our room. The room was very clean, spacious, the bed was huge and very comfortable. The tv was small but I didn’t come to Venice to watch tv.
The breakfast was served in the small outside area. It was basic but more than what other reviews have reported. There were cereals, yoghurts, cake, bread, packet croissants, crackers, spreads and coffee/tea. The coffee was good, there was more than enough food provided to keep you going. And they served until 10.30am which for late starters like me is good. It was very pleasant. It was an intimate setting and we met some lovely guests.
Improvements suggested would be – provision of water in the rooms and some glasses, some writing paper and pens. And some fresh fruit at breakfast.
Although this would all probably push up the price and pricewise this place was very good compared to many similar establishments and in a better location. This is Venice and I consider we got very good value for money – for Venice.
I had been considering other hotels nearer to the train station for convenience on arrival and price – but after 4 days in venice, I know I now prefer the location in Castello of Ca Valeri. It is worth the longer initial transfer time as the location is far far nicer in Castello and closer to St. Marks area, Bridge of Sighs etc. It is lovely walk towards the main tourist areas via the back streets, it is quieter, and there is also a lovely walk along the front of the Grand Canal and places to sit out and watch the boats go by. If going in summer, it is also closer to the Lido. It was very hot when we were there and the Lido is only 3 stops away.
I liked the Ca’Valeri because it was a taste of real authentic Venice and didn't cost a second mortgage. I would definitely stay again.

We started our trip to Italy with Venice and two nights at the Ca'Valeri B&B. This is situated close to the Arsenale Vaporetto stop and we found it quite easily. On arrival you ring a bell and give your name and the door is buzzed open - your keys are then left on the reception desk - all as we had been told. Our room was on the second floor and was lovely - very Venetian and the corner bath was great - there is no shower but there is a shower attachment in the bath. The breakfasts are simple - tea/coffee/juice with croissant, french toast and cake. Nothing fancy but it did the trick. The weather in April was kind and we were able to eat in the small courtyard at the back of the B&B - if the weather is poor then there is a table and chairs in your room and your breakfast is brought to you. There is free wi-fi and someone available to answer any questions in the morning. It was clean, tidy and perfect for our short stay in Venice - about a ten minute walk from St Mark's Square.

We stayed at this nice little B&B for three nights in May 2013. I was a little bit apprehensive before arriving because some of the reviews already here gave me cause for concern, but having stayed there now I'd like to address a few things:

- It's a B&B really, not a hotel, so don't expect round-the-clock service. Was not a problem for us - the owner was around when we arrived, we settled the bill the day before we left and left the key on the desk when we left for our early morning flight.
- There is a room you might not want to stay in (I don't remember the number). When we arrived we were given the choice of upgrading from our standard double to another, larger room. While larger, the room was not as nicely decorated, had a bunk bed in the corner and a generally odd smell - so we stuck with the original option.
- The hotel is not that hard to find - we followed the directions on the website and found it no problem. But it helps to know the entrance is actually down a little (dead-end) side alley from Ramo dei Corazzieri.
- Breakfast was pretty good actually - cereals, yoghurt, croissant, bread, cheese, coffee, juice, even a nice selection of tarts. Not nearly as basic as other reviews had me believe!

In the end, the service was nice and the location is excellent. I'd definitely consider staying here again next time I travel to Venice, but I'd make sure I'm not in 'that' room!

We did get lost but it's Venice and the walk was pretty - we had emailed for directions but the owner didn't respond - on arrival we were not greeted we had to ring a bell give pur name and the door was buzzed open - so we were left to own devices - no instructions or pointers - we found breakfast by chance - simple juice coffee and croissant with salami ps £5 if you have more than 1 coffee - staff not friendly but okish
Area good and enjoyed the visit
Room was lovely but could have done with water or tea facilities
