“Best Location for Transfers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2008

We stayed at Ca Doge for two nights at end of October 2008. Expensive, but so is everything in Venice. Rooms are well appointed, staff is friendly, continental breakfast was great. Very noisy during the day with the sounds of the Piazzale Roma and ongoing construction behind the hotel, but quiet at night - no problems sleeping.
Water pressure is an issue, stairs are a bit of a nuisance and front of hotel is grey and dingy with garbage and recycling bins blocking sidewalk. Tricky getting in and out of front door.
But they say location is everything and this hotel has the best location if you are transferring by bus, watertaxi, train, cruise terminal, etc.

We stayed at this hotel in August 08. Its very handy if you are driving to Venice, as it has its own private parking (at a price). Its quite a hectic location at the bus depot, but it wasnt noisy at night. Its only across the car park for the Vaporetto into town. I read on an earlier review it was a 15 min walk to St Marks Square which isnt true. Its proably a 15/20 min walk to the Rialto bridge but walking to St Marks I would leave 30-35 mins. However its handy with the Vaporetto if not a little crowded.

The staff were very friendly and helpful but the breakfast wasnt that great - cereal, bread rolls and fruit.

I was disappointed with the room, though the bed and bathroom were clean, the walls were stained as were the mirrors, and god knows what was going on but the guttering came into the room and it had originally been boxed around. But where the boards had come off they handnt bothered to repair it. We were only pleased it didnt rain!

I would recommend for a night or two in Venice for practical reasons if you are driving but in no way romantic if thats what you are looking for!!

We needed a one-night precruise hotel since our Costa Cruise was leaving on Sun Jun22 and we were arriving in Venice on Sat Jun21. Wanted a hotel that was close to the Piazzale Roma bus terminal so we could catch the free Costa Cruise shuttle to the Venice Port. And we didn't want to have to drag our luggage up and down the bridges of Venice after a 12hour flight.

Ca Doge Hotel was the perfect choice! When you enter the Piazzale Roma, just look for the Autopark. Ca Doge is right beside it. (Have no fear about the noise from the cars and buses. The rooms must be sound proofed because we heard nothing.) We spent $328 US for a triple room, including a continental breakfast and it was the least expensive room we could find that met our criteria.

Although the hotel had no elevator, our room was only one floor up (and the hotel graciously offerred to carry our bags for us). The room was bright and big enough to handle the extra cot for our daughter. The washroom was ex tremely clean and there was plenty of hot water for the shower. (Even the toilet worked like a charm -- one of my European holiday pet peeves!). And don't bother buying bottled water. The water from the taps was delicious.

Definitely an undiscovered gem!

Ca Doge. We stayed at this hotel for two nights 4/27 and 4/28. This hotel is on Piazzale Roma, the main motor hub for Venice. All the buses come into this square. A huge parking garage is here along with some car rental agencies (only Hertz open on Sunday.) Main ticket office for vaporetto also here. Close to main vaporetto lines and once the new bridge is open, close to the railway station. We stayed here as it offered parking for the rental car in the garage next door. Although not a romantic location, I don’t know how thrilled I would have been to carry luggage from the parking garage to the vaporetto to another hotel deeper into Venice up and over the bridges and on the cobblestones. Room was adequate sized and the bathroom had a bathtub!

Nadia was wonderful along with her staff. Breakfast offering was limited, but what was offered was tasty. (No hams or cheeses). Service very nice. If you have a car, you may want to highly consider this hotel. Also, Piazzale Roma is where the cruise ships run their shuttles, so if you are flying into Venice for a night or two before a cruise, you might wish to stay here to avoid dealing with luggage issues.

Fantastic hotel. Venessa the receptionist, was accommodating. Easy to find as it is at the end of the Causeway. Parking at the hotel. Stayed in the Junior Suite, large room, clean, comfortable, quiet. A parrot resides in the lobby and loves all the guests. Excellent location, 1 block from a main water bus stop. Great breakfast. The only negative was no lift, and although we were on the 2nd floor, it was only a slight inconvenience checking in and checking out with our luggage. Be aware though, we originally booked out reservations through NYCE Venice. By chance we called Ca' Doge prior to our arrival and they were unaware of our reservation. They were full other than the Junior Suite. We would stay at the Ca' Doge again and we highly recommend.

The hotel is right beside the motorbus stop from Marco Polo Airport, the rooms are great and some have views over the Pl. Roma. If travelling onto the cruise terminal the shuttle bus is 150 meters away for most of the Cruiselines. A great place for a post or pre cruise stay. Very helpful staff and clean and well furnished rooms. The hotel has limited food services but there are plenty of restaurants all within 200 meters.

I shall use this hotel again when i next board a cruise from venice.

When we first arrived at Ca Doge we were surprised it was so far away (all of 10 minute walk) from San Marco. But you know, it was really worth it- we actually had to see Venice to get to San Marco!! The Hotel is run by a great friendly and helpful team including Milly the Parrot. It is extremely boutique. The rooms are large and extremely clean, the bathrooms are gorgeous - great hot showers and all very new!!! The breakfasts whilst continental are very creative. We would recommend this hotel to any age group - forget the address, like I said, it's a great easy walk to Rialto and San Marco. Enjoy!!!
