Cavalletto & Doge Orseolo
Ranked #177 of 385 Hotels in Venice
Reviewed 12 October 2013

We took the water taxi from the airport directly to the hotel's dock since we wanted to enjoy quality time in Venice since it was just an overnight stay before we had to board our cruise ship later the next evening. What a sight to see Venice with the sunset. The hotel location was so wonderful as we were able to enjoy strolling in and around St. Mark's square at night. We were able to enjoy a romantic gondola ride starting from right outside of the hotel dock. The next day, we were able to have our luggage stored and then we enjoyed getting lost in Venice. Time went by so quickly, it was time to leave, we were able to join another couple heading for the cruise port via water taxi.

Backing up a bit, I must say It was a little tricky getting our luggage up to our room upon arrival, but there was a nice young man who lugged our large suitcase up the staircases.

So, the next time you're looking for a hotel in Venice, come visit Albergo Cavalletto & Doge Orseolo, spend the extra money$$$ and enjoy your stay. Thank you staff for accomodating us all the way from the US after our over 18 hour flight; appreciate your email regarding transportation advice from the airport. We enjoyed our stay at your hotel, got a great night's sleep, and loved Venice. thank you.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Room was small but well furnished and spotlessly clean. Great value for the location. Staff were helpful and the barman "joker" looked like he just stepped out of a James Bond movie! He could mix a perfect negroni which rivalled that in Harry's bar any day! Chilled prosecco overlooking the gondola park made the holiday perfect! Venice is an amazing city and this hotel is a great base to explore the fascinating history.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at his hotel in the 2nd week of September. The ride in from the airport via private speed boat was breathtaking, winding through the local canals and dropping us a St Mark’s Square for a short walk to the hotel. The hotel foyer was well appointed and the staff friendly throughout our stay, the room size was an issue on arrival. We had a lovely view over the canal however there was no room for our baggage and ourselves in the room. We approached the hotel staff and were told to return in the morning and they would see if a larger room came available at the same rate.The hotel breakfast was very good as was the bar for an evening drink to relax after all the days walking, it looked out over the canals behind St Mark’s Square with the Hard Rock café opposite and the crowds excited outside our window waiting for their gondolas ride .
I would recommend the hotel but stipulate your room type on booking.
Thanks to all the staff

Room Tip: stipulate your room requirments when booking do not trust your travel agent

My friends and I chose the hotel because of its good location (next to St Marks Sq, across from Hard Rock Café) and also because it has a private docking for boats, gondolas and water taxis. However, as it turned out, no water taxi wanted to dock there as it was congested with gondolas. We could have chosen a better hotel even without private docking !! However the service was very good, the staff always helpful and friendly. Shops and restaurants were an easy walk away. However there were a number of items that made us wish we should have chosen a different hotel, such as poor WiFi, TVs with tiny screens, and the bar closed early.

Room Tip: Choose a canal-facing room (with extra cost), very picturesque with all the gondolas parked there.

The only good thing about this hotel was the location, it's situated just next to st marks square..the female staff was extremely rude, we tried asking her for suggestions on where to dine and she snubbed us very rudely by telling ask to walk along dark alleys in hope to find an open restaurants without giving us names or details and it was just 9 pm.. The room was very tiny we could barely move.. Don't even get me started on the bathroom .. All in all we had a bad experience there...:(

We had trouble locating this hotel purely because none of the maps show the numerous passage ways leading off of St Mark's Square and it takes a while to realise how small Venice is - what looks like a long way on the map is just a short distance in reality. Once we discovered the alley and passage ways we couldn't believe how close we were.

Our room was smaller than we are used to, but clean. It had a small balcony, just enough to stand on, and the view was over the roof tops. As it was July and the hottest for 10 years (38C) with 100% humidity we kept the doors shut and the air-con on. There was a small bar fridge in the room, but this was not working properly and although I reported the fault to the concierge, it was not fixed before we left. Like many continental hotels, there is no tea or coffee making facilities in the room. So take a travel kettle and some supplies if you are the sort of person who needs a coffee or tea first thing in the morning.

Breakfast is the usual self service buffet arrangement with all the usual meats, cheeses, cereals and pastries you tend to find on the continent.

Room Tip: From inside our room on the 4th floor we could constantly hear the lift motors. We did not find thi...
