Venice Certosa Hotel
Ranked #220 of 385 Hotels in Venice
Reviewed 15 May 2013

READERS... know that I was absolutely delighted with my recent stay in the Venice Certosa Hotel. I found the staff and management to be exceptionally friendly; kind and helpful. And yet, all in a very unobtrusive and professional way.

There was an accidental double booking in my original hotel and I was unexpectedly transferred to the Venice Certosa Hotel. At all times I was afforded extra care even though the original booking error had nothing to do with Certosa Hotel. In particular, I was very impressed with Sabrina, the duty manage on the day. She calmly dealt with my problem and was very sensitive to my needs through out my stay. There was a sincerity about her manner that's a rare find in business today.

Certosa Hotel is on the nearby island of the same name. Getting there during and after hours is relatively very simple and totally worth the effort. Once there, and this is the real magic of the place... its an oasis from the 'madding crowds' back in the city center. The peace and tranquility of the area is in sharp contrast to the rush and hassle of what is one of Europe's busiest tourists centers.

I found the hotel to be exceptional clean and excellent value for money. The breakfast was set in a small and very peaceful slice of nature. Wild rabbits were running happily in the near distance. It was a wonderfully fresh and full breakfast I might add. Very relaxing in a spacious green decked area adjacent to the hotel.

If I was to find any fault it was that its not very well sign posted. But the more I think about it... I hope this hotel continues to be a well kept secret !

We stayed at the Certosa Hotel for 3 nights and were very pleased with the comfort and peacefulness of the place after days exploring Venice. If you're flying to Venice you can get the Alilaguna waterbus directly to Certosa Island for 16 euros or you can get the bus into Venice and then the 4.1 waterbus out to the island from St Marc's Square. There's obviously the water taxi option too which will cost around 70 euros from Pl Roma. We dined at the hotel every night and the food was excellent. The whole place is very understated but the staff couldn't do enough and were very helpful when explaining the public transport system to us and the food, drinks and accommodation were excellent value, especially compared to Venice prices. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend or return.

We stayed three nights in Hotel Certosa. At first, it should be noted that Hotel is just a single building surrounded with other marina buildings. The park near the Hotel was closed for reconstruction. There is only two water bus lines that stop at the Certosa pier. After 8 pm, Hotel's free shuttle takes you from St. Elena or Lido upon request (by phone call). Free shuttle comes in 5 min. so yo do not wait for a long time. But sailing with a small boat at nigth in dark water may or may not be enjoyable!

Our room was decorated with photos of disabled people and a large box which was carried by one of them when he visited the hotel. Also our room's name was named to him. But when you are in a holiday as a couple , that sort of decoration is not very romantic :) I guess not all rooms are decorated like this.

Hotel stuff was helpful (and very very calm) and the breakfast was OK (9€). Our double bed was two-sheltered-one and it was a bit annoying.

You may choose this hotel for your stay in Venice, if you are on a budget and would not like to stay far from Venice center.

Room Tip: Ask to reception if your room has a special theme during check-in.

Stayed over for 2 nights and was surprised by the good service. A generous breakfast awaited us in the morning, unmatched by the average European hotels. The staff members were eager to assist us in planning our sightseeing and we valued their input on our itinerary. Free shuttle boat service after-hours is proof of their dedication and customer focus...

Relaxed atmosphere. Good people. But It could be better. Not enough choices for breakfast. Great outdoor seating but horrible mosquitos. No full mirror in the room. Nothing to do at night.
Easy to connect to venice and other islands. Transport is reliable and good.

This hotel is very good. The staff here are so nice and helpful. There is only one hotel in the island Certosa. Although it is not located near city centre, it takes only around 15 mins from the hotel to city centre. Also, the hotel provides private boats for picking you up after 8 oclock pm. it is clean and quiet. It is very comfortable to stay a few days here.
