If you’re one of the fortunate few to call this place home while visiting the charming city of Venice, then bravo to you. No kidding, this cozy boutique hotel certainly stands out amongst the multitude and offers its patrons comforts rivaling the best in the area.
To be sure, this isn’t the Four Seasons (as far as luxury goes anyway) but what Ca Dei Dogi may lack in over-the-top white glove service, it more than compensates for in its personalized attention to its guests with utmost courtesy. Truly, the staff – Stefano, Susana and their team are just simply impeccable. One of the best—collectively— I’ve encountered in a while.
As far as location goes, you can’t do any better. The hotel is conveniently situated right in the heart of historic Venice, just by the main square of Piazza San Marco which includes architectural gem and one of the most important structures in all of Europe, majestic Basilica di San Marco. It is also bordered by Palazzo Ducale – seat of Venice’s governing body for centuries where it’s said the infamous Casanova was once imprisoned, and several of Venice’s other highlights.
Ca Dei Dogi features 6 rooms all individual decorated to create a more personalized experience for each visitor. They appear to have been recently renovated (at least mine was – a single which though a tad teeny, quite practical enough), and comes equipped with the standards: minibar, coffee/tea, safe, flat panel TVs (including some English channels which seems to be a rarity in Italy) and extra bedding, of course, if needed. Unfortunately there isn’t WiFi access in the rooms; however, this is possible in the reception area. There’s also a laptop there for general use with free access to the internet. Additionally, on the top floor, guests can unwind in hotel’s communal terrace.
Like most hotels in Italy, breakfast is included with your reservation. But this is no run-of-the-mill buffet-style spread. Indeed, patrons are treated to individually set tables with juices, yogurt, fruit salad, a warmed pastry (usually a croissant), cappuccino made to order and omelets (on demand) – whichever way you like it, your choice of filling.
Overall, a lovely experience which added to a thoroughly enjoyable visit. I miss it already and hope to return again someday.
