Antico Capon
Ranked #403 of 482 Venice B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 February 2009

My fiance and I backpacked Europe for the summer of 2008. We wanted to stay in Venice within walking distance to all the sites, but everywhere was so expensive. We found the Capon on Trav.com for a great price, in a great location so we booked it. Lets be honest, this place is no gem, but its safe, semi-clean, and in a great location.... and its CHEAP. We had some trouble with construction in the building next door, but the owners were nice, the room was.. ehh ok for people in their 20s on a budget. We would stay again if we were going on a budget.

We were unlucky enough to not only have stayed there (couldn't stand it, so just for one night), but also to have experienced their so-called fine cuisine... Upon arrival we were welcomed by an older man with a fake smile, something was suspicious as there seemed to be no guests around at the moment, and all the staff were busy hunting for new customers.
Briefly speaking - we strongly recommend NOT to stay there (bugs, destroyed and dirty furniture, no hot water, bad smell, etc). In addition, food and drinks were utterly disgusting, while the staff, from the moment we started complaining about the service and quality of the food, agressive and unfriendly. We were literally a second away from calling the police.

In short: better stay in a tent on Campo Santa Margharita than at Antico Capon.

Stayed: May 2008

I had read that Campo Santa Margherita was the place for reasonably priced food, as it attracted the student population.
I am sorry to say, Antico Capon was not a pleasant eating experience and we should have realised this by the front of house gentleman who coaxed us in. We were hungry (we were still hungry on leaving) Good restaurants are far too busy to spare a member of staff to do this.
Food ~ lack lustre and over priced! The wine "it only comes in bottles, not carafs" Other restaurants manage. The restaurant was busy, but only thanks to the pressure salesman out front! This is Venice, look around you ~ lots of good restaurants with good prices. Do not be pressurised to go in. Another tip,
look for Osteria or Taverna ~ avoid restaurant!!

I was unlucky when i stayed here as it was not part of the main building. I agree with many of the reviews below that it was like staying in an old dead person's appartment that had not been cleaned out. There were no plug sockets and the towel on the floor in the bathroom was like something my dog would lie in after having a mud bath. It was a good location but very loud on the square at night. However, it was terrible value for money. i have since stayed in venice and got a lovely clean and friendly hotel for only ten euros more. Don't risk staying here!

That happened to me to and the did nothing to compensate us

Just changed our room for the second night and in was terribly full os those terrible insects

I had never been eaten by bedbugs before, but then
and i dont recomend the experience to anyone.

But I agree with the fantastic situation of the place.

We came back to Spain with such a terrible souvenir from venice

I expected the worst after reading a couple of the reviews on tripadvisor, but happily I found my stay at Hotel Antico Capon quite comfortable. It is a great location, lots of stuff around but not swamped by tourists, and the hotel wasn't hard to find. The room we got was fine, they even gave us an ensuite despite the fact I hadn't booked one.

Complaints: Lots of mosquito's came in through the window, which was necessary to keep open because it was hot and no air conditioning. The room was a little run down, a few things- notably the shower head- were busted, worn, or didn't work properly. And the shower mats; wash the shower mats, guys! Also I am sure that my booking said 'breakfast included'...

Firstly i would have to say that the stay in the hotel antico capon was sensational and made my stay in venice just a dream one to remember.

this was because of three things. firstly, the location is just excellent. it is located conveniently close to the main station and close to all the gathering areas and districts.

secondly it is clean and well presented. the bathrooms are clean and rooms spotless.

lastly, the staff and proprietor do a great job making sure that everything you may need is provided for you. how to get around, where to eat and visit and how to get around. the willingness of the staff to help was just amazing!

i think for hotel accomodation in venice Hotel Antico Capon is a must stay.

its great location, service with a smile and an all round great deal in terms of price. i will definitely be staying there again when i visit venice.

Kind Regards
Gregory Niziksiotis
