“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Lovely hotel overlooking the canal. It is a short walk (about 2 or 3 blocks) vroom the nearest vaporetto station (consider this when packing), but worth it!! Service is great and you have small tables out front where you can enjoy the view. Rooms are beautiful and comfortable and people are very friendly and helpful. The area is very nice and there are lots of shops and restaurants close by.

Stayed September 2013, travelled solo

Very well received. We were taken to our room. The room was very homey and quaint. I loved the watching the boats pass by our window. Great breakfast. Breakfast lady was rude and did not seem to like her job. Other than that is was good. Hotel gave us complimentary champagne which added a special touch. It was our 14th anniversary. I left my travel pillow and hotel messaged me right away. I was thankful.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Great location for all sights, 10 mins from Piazza San Marco. Vaporetto stops close by. Staff were very helpful and the hotel was clean and tidy. Bedroom was a little small and would have wanted larger had been longer stay but Great view of the Lagoon. Breakfast was usual continental but good all round choice. Would definitely use this hotel again for pure value. Want to give overall mark of 31/2.

Spent two nights here on our ninth visit to venice, looking for something traditional in a less tourist driven area. What a find, large comfortable room and bed and the most fantastic view over to GIudecca, spent so much time watching the canal activity, and the hustle and bustle of working venetians. Very efficient staff, nice breakfast and good area for nice family style restaurants. Yes you will pay a bit more but if yup want to escape the tourist side of Venice and enjoy the view it's perfect.

Room Tip: Front facing for the canal view

In my opinion, Hotel Ca' Formenta is perfectly located in Venice. It is away from the majority of the crowds and in close proximity to some pretty good restaurants. The Arsenale water bus stop is a short walk from the hotel to reach any part of Venice. San Marco is a bit of a walk, but it is very nice to return to the hotel in a quieter part of the city. The room was on the smaller side, but very clean and cozy. If you're a larger person, the shower can be a bit of a challenge. Our room was right on the canal adjacent to the hotel and gave a decent view out to the lagoon. The breakfast was included in our rate and was good. The café next door is also a good value and very convenient. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. They spoke English very well which was a plus for us. They also held our bags for the day which was very nice.

My husband and I travel each summer with our grandson who is now 13. We have spent a lot of time in Italy the past 3 years but had not yet taken him to Venice. We were dreading the summer crowds made even worse by the cruise ships coming into port. I wanted a hotel that was in easy walking distance from the major sites but away from the crowds and for that reason chose Ca'Formenta. We were not disappointed. We were given a very large corner Junior Suite with a king size bed and a very comfortable couch / day bed. We had views that overlooked the lagoon and which was quite lovely. The room was spotlessly clean and quite comfortable. The bathroom was also very large especially by Euro standards. Breakfast was included and very nice. There were tables inside and also outside facing the lagoon. Wifi was included with the price of the room and worked well. I booked on Expedia and very shortly thereafter I received a very nice welcoming email and confirmation form the hotel with detailed directions on how to locate it. I was very impressed as never before have I received a message or confirmation directly from the hotel I had booked through Expedia. I later telephoned the hotel to let them know that we would be arriving later than we expected, quite close to midnight. They assured me that would not be a problem and they were holding the room. The hotel staff were extremely welcoming, courtesy and helpful. We did take advantage of water taxi over to Murano that was included with our room. Our grandson quite enjoyed seeing the glass being made and also the showroom. The gentleman who welcomed us and explained the process was very professional and did not once pressure us to make a purchase. We did not buy a thing but were happy we had gone for the visit. Should we visit Venice again we will certainly stay at Ca'Formenta. It was not luxurious but certainly a nice hotel and very good value!

Room Tip: Request a room with a view.

Good little hotel. A lovely 15 minute walk along the lagoon to St Marks Square. Far enough away from the busy crowds but easy walking distance to the main attractions. Bedrooms clean and breakfast adequate. Plenty of bars and restaurants near by. Would recommend this hotel.
