              Excellent location and quality for a fair price. Quiet though in walking distance of center. Very friendly staff

              Absence of a lounge. Maybe an idea to adapt "innercourt" for this purpose?

              location is great, lagoon view excellent, staff very kind and helpful.

              breakfast was only average quality - no fresh bread for example despite the fact that a bakery is only a few steps away

              7.8

              The breakfast buffet is great - caters to International travellers. The hotel staff are friendly, professional, and polite. The location of the hotel is great - right next to the water and on the Via Garibaldi, so plenty of access to Venice's sights, but just a little further out of town in a more peaceful district.

              The surrounding restaurants are very limited for choice and are all a rip-off. Avoid the menu turistico and go for a walk to find dinner. Would be good if there was a decently priced dinner available in the hotel.

              6.2

              Reception staff were very good and helped when my mother was ill. Great coffee in the morning from the coffee machine, pity it's not available all day. Within walking distance of St Mark's Square (10 - 15 minutes), yet away from the hustle and bustle. Close to Arsenale and Giardini vaporetto stops. Has its own water taxi landing platform. Lovely view of lagoon and close to some local restaurants.

              Breakfast was average, needed some fresh salad to go with meats and cheese. No lift in back part of hotel. Bathrooms very, very small even by European standards. Carpets were badly worn in many places and coverlets needed cleaning or replacing; the hotel is very worn and is in need of refurbishment. Would definitely return if this was done.

              9.2

              We have stayed at the Ca' Formenta in the past and decided to return this time for another family trip. We were not disappointed. The hotel is in a handy location just a short walk from St Mark's Square. It is very easy to get to with the vaporetto (line 4.1 or 1 from Central Station to Arsenale) then two bridges (with handy ramps) and you're there. Comfy bedroom with lagoon view and everything you need. Great shower. Breakfast has all you need: cereals, croissants, fruit, yoghurt, breads, cheese, ham jam, fruit juice, hot drinks etc etc. Staff all very friendly. Venice is always a pleasure to visit and the Ca' Formenta is in a great position to explore from. Line 1 on the vaporetto takes you all the way up the Grand Canal to the major sites. You can also catch the vaporetto to Burano/Murano/Torcello with one change. I advise you get the 2 or 3 day vaporetto tickets rather than a ticket for each journey. It works out much cheaper. It is true you can walk a lot and we always do but we still saved.

              Old world charm. Great location just 5 min. from St Mark,s square. At the mouth of the Grand Canal---just far enough to be more quiet and experience where some of the locals live as well. There was even a private dock for a water taxi. Breakfast was provided and tickets to travel to Murano Island as well as tickets for the casino if desired.Staff helpful. Was able to attend an opera and concert within walking distance. Small hotel with lots of character.

              Liked everything.
