“Great hotel”
Reviewed 23 June 2011

Loved this hotel, another great TripAdvisor find. Rooms in Venice tend to be small, but our room was plenty spacious for 3 people, including a teenager. We had the Superior room which included a separate space with a bed to give everyone a little more privacy. The room was very clean, nice, comfortable, quiet and had a large, modern bathroom. The staff was outstanding, helping us with reservations, recommendations and schedules. They recommended the restaurant that provided one of our best meals in Italy, La Bitta. It was also in a great location, near St Marks and the most popular vaporetto stops. Amenities included full breakfast, A/C, safe.

This hotel is clearly run by two proprietors that really care about their business. The location and quality of the rooms were outstanding considering the price. Our room, while small, had the nicest bathroom of our whole trip. The breakfast was probably my least favorite of our vacation but considering they're only serving six rooms that is understandable. The owners even made sure that we knew what water bus to take back to the train station and made sure our breakfast was set out early so we could eat before catching our train.

This is an amazing little hotel! It is basically right behind the Doge's Palace on St. Mark's Square but can only be accessed by walking a few yards down a tiny and ancient alleyway from that square. Stepping from the busy waterfront into the alley is like going back hundreds of years! Nice people, rooms are fine (no elevators), restaurant small but gave us some good breakfasts, etc. Could not be closer to the action at a more reasonable price!

Our room was small but comfortable, staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was well above average, and the location was terrific: close to San Marco Piazza, but tucked up a laneway in a quiet world of its own so you could make a quick escape from the hordes. Not cheap, but reasonable by Venice standards.

The only negative was something probably beyond the control of management: a selfish couple in a nearby room who thought it was reasonable to shout, laugh, slam doors and generally behave obnoxiously until 4am on consecutive nights.

We are still dreaming about our trip to Switzerland and Italy in the winter. It is in large part due to our stay in Venice. Ca' dei Dogi was a perfect find and quite reasonably priced. We drove through Europe and parked in a parking lot outside of Venice. Cars are not allowed. The train would have taken us to the same location, and then you take a water bus to your stop. We got off on the wrong stop, had to walk a little and caught the next water bus to get to the right stop. It was after 7 and already quite dark. At first it feels a little scary to walk through with your luggage, but we stopped at a store to get directions, and the store owner spoke English and got us quickly back on track.

We were a little apprehensive about going down the Calle degli Albanesi because it looks like narrow alley, but the sensor lights came on and guided us through the to the front door. You learn very quickly that these alleyways and paths are part of Venice's unique charm. You have to be buzzed in, and once you get your keys, you are able to open the front door with them. The location is so close to St. Mark's Square and the water taxis, so it's very convenient, but at the same time very quiet.

We chose the room with the circular blue windows. We were on the top floor, and there is no elevator. My teenage daughter loved staying in this room. She said it was spacious for just her, and the room was quite cozy. It is a boutique hotel, and even though we had enough room, I hate when people say that these kinds of places are too small. We had the other room with a television and view of the inner courtyard. It was too cold in December to partake in the balcony and rooftop terrace, but it would provide a lovely setting for coffee or resting from the day's activities.

There is one computer with free Internet access, and if no one else is looking to use the computer, it was enough. I tried to use it later in the evening and no one else was around. They had a shelf of tour books you can borrow and pamphlets to help plan your outings.

Breakfast and service were great. They went out of their way to make us great omelettes and cappuccinos. We also had breads, marmalade, cheese, Nutella, and juice. The staff was very nice and made us feel very comfortable.

The hotel owner was great and arranged a free taxi for us to Murano. You should know that any factory tours include a sales pitch at the end, and the water taxi back to your hotel is not free. We took a water bus back and it was fine, but it took a lot longer than the direct water taxi, which is faster but costs a lot more, and is not as scenic. We took a bus that wasn't quite as fast because we left later in the evening, so make sure consult the schedule in your planning.

Ca' dei Dogi is a very quaint little hotel in the heart of Venice! It has a perfect location right off of the Vaporetto stop and San Marco Square! The service was excellent! They included breakfast which was very tasty omelettes and fresh fruit/yogurt! They did have free wi-fi available but this was only in the lobby.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights before a cruise out of Venice. This little gem is located in a quiet little alleyway, close to everything. You can walk to San Marco square (fabulous at night), the Doge's Palace as well as everywhere in Venice and only a few seconds from the vaporetto stops. We stayed in room 301 with a little terrace off the room. Our view was of the Doge's Palace (the upper level so no one could see us). We had our coffee each morning on the terrace. For being so close to everything, it was absolutely quiet. The morning breakfast was great and included with the room. Why stay anywhere else when you can have everything here? The staff could not have been nicer in helping us get around. You will be happy to stay here.
