We recently seen a fabulous 5 days in Venice both of us first time visitors. Great location of hotel and exceptional service from everyone at the hotel. They could not have been more helpful and very friendly. It was lovely to sit and have our breakfast each morning by the side of the canal. And the roof terrace was peaceful, a sun trap and had great views across the city. The main tourist sights were 15-20 mins walk or accessible by the water taxi. Would recommend staying at this hotel and hope to go again in the future.

We stayed for one night, but wished we were staying for longer. We received an unexpected upgrade to a very large canal facing room which was just fantastic (Room 5 - highly recommended). The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. We were greeted in the morning by the owner who showed us to our breakfast table by the canal. Breakfast on the terrace next to the canal on the last day of October was perfect. This area full of local colour and it is very easy to find. It is lively in the daytime and evening but extremely quiet during the night. It was great to wake up to the hustle and bustle of Venice life going on outside our window. It felt very local and un-touristy. All in all, it was worth the money and we highly recommend it.

Marvellously decorated rooms and brand new marble bathrooms make you feel like you're in a much more luxurious hotel than *** stars. It's a "boutique hotel", with only 2 floors, 4 rooms on each floor. From what we could tell most rooms have a nice view and all are decorated differently. Ours had a flowers-and-gold motif with authentic wooden ceiling and a chandelier of Murano glass. There are two terrace: one on the roof top and one adjacent to the canal. During our stay in mid October we had breakfast every day on the canal side terrace, in the warm sun. You're eating so close to the water that one morning they had to move the tables because the tide was exceptionally high and my girlfriend almost got wet feet. Breakfast was served personally by the owner of the hotel, an well mannered Italian in his 60's who speaks English and French. Maybe a detail, but in contrast to hotels we previously stayed at the mini bar is not filled with overpriced small liquor bottles. Instead you'll find water, beer and prosecco at a reasonably low price range. The hotel borders the second largest canal in Venice, just two minutes away from the famous Grand Canal. If you arrive at the train station it's a easy 5 minute walk: go left, and then left again right after crossing the first bridge. If you arrive at the airport, like we did, take the boat to Venice and right before the second stop "Guglie" you'll see the hotel on the left side. We had a wonderful romantic stay!

I had a room in the annex building, which was very clean. Actually it is small 2 room apartment so you share bathroom facilities with one more room, which was not a problem as I never saw my neigbours. Location is close to vaparetto stop, boats depart from there not just to Venice center but to Murano as well. 10 min walk from railway station with only one bridge to cross.

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights at the Hotel Ca' Dogaressa. We found the hotel very easily having travelled by Alilaguna vaporetto (orange line) from the airport to the Guglie stop which is a short walk from the hotel. It is in an ideal location and Senor Danieli, the manager, was most charming and helpful throughout our stay. Our room was very quiet and beautifully decorated in Venetian style. The Cannaregio Canal area is uncrowded and untouristy but lively with lots of passing waterbourne traffic. The little cafe on the canal front beside the hotel is a great place for lunch or a glass of wine as you watch the world go by. Each night we ate in restaurants either across the canal or just around the corner near the bridge. We love fish and we were very pleased by the quality and value of the food. One restaurant in particular - Trattoria da Gigio was excellent and we ate there twice. We used the vaporetto to get around and all of Venice was within very easy reach. We really enjoyed wandering around different areas in Venice looking at the architecture and shopping. We also visited a number of galleries and museums and our favourites were the Ducal Palace and Ca' Pesaro (Musee Orientale). If you're going in March you should take layers of clothing and a warm coat. During the six days we were in Venice we had all sorts of weather from lovely sun with outdoor lunches and freezing cold with flurries of snow that sent us scurrying back to the hotel to warm up! We hope to go back and wouldn't stay anywhere other than Ca' Dogaressa.

This was my first visit to Venice, I am English and my partner is Italian, so we had different expectations, but, we were both delighted with the hotel. The hotel is 10 minutes easy walk from the S. Lucia train station and 2 minutes from the main shopping street. The restaurants in the area were reasonable value. Watch out for the water prices per bottle, the little grocer shop nearest the hotel was 50 cent per bottle, 5 shops down 75 cents a bottle. The hotel provides maps and information and they speak English. Just outside the hotel is the water bus stop where you can travel direct to San Marco Airport. It is such a well place hotel for all amenities available in Venice

I chose this hotel because we (my adult daughter and I) wanted a location for a convenient in and out because as we were using Venezia as a way-station to skiing, price, and the previous comments on Trip Advisor. It is a delightful small hotel on a canal (but the front on a side alley), about a 20 minute walk (with suitcases) from the bus station in Piazzale Roma. The spotless small room was exquisitely furnished with Venetian-style white furniture trimmed in gold (possibly also pink – can’t recall) with a nice tiled bathroom, so it would be perfect for a romantic get-away. The staff, most of whom spoke very good English, were friendly and helpful. Breakfast in a small room was just fine. An excellent value. Thoroughly recommended.

This hotel is perfectly placed for first time visitors to Venice. We caught the Aeroport water bus from stand 4 and just after the bridge of three arches we saw Ca Dodaressa from the boat. This was such a stress free start to the holiday so we had the energy to sight see for the rest of the day and into the night. The area is wonderfully local and Italian, especially if you wander the area behind and north of the hotel. There is a wealth of very good restaurants although they are quite expensive if you have two courses. There is a supermarket just around the corner beyond Guglie stop bridge so it is possible to economise and have picnics, how ever there are few areas to sit with a picnic in Venice. Ca Dogressa is a little way from St Marks Square so it's well worth getting a three day public transport ticket which you can use to go as far as Burano and Murano Islands which are easily done in a day. Our classic room was beautiful, quiet and very clean.It was extremely quiet, I think the rooms at the front maybe noisier but you've got the advantage of a view of the canal and daily life.There were mosquitos at night which is something I hadn't prepared for, easily dealt with if you don't open your window after dusk. Breakfast was simple, good quality and adequate. The staff were English speaking, helpful and friendly. Because of the hotel's size we felt very private and comfortable throughout our stay.

Ca'Dogaressa was by far one of the best hotel experiences we've ever had. I've stayed in MUCH more expensive hotels all over the world and this was truly one of the best. This is a small and simple, family-owned and operated bed & breakfast with 5 or 6 rooms total. This is an incredible value in Venice for the price offered and overall an excellent hotel. Very good breakfast served outdoors canal-side in the morning, VERY attentive service, 24-hour reception and quiet, comfortable atmosphere. Well-situated, close to a convenient vaporetto boat stop. Beautifully decorated and comfortable spacious rooms, all with unique decor. Would definitely stay again.

This was our first time to stay in the hotel and it was absolutely gorgeous. Everybody who worked there was so friendly and helpful. The room was amazing; spacious, spotless and luxurious. Bathroom was immaculate and anything that had been used was replaced daily. The cleaning of the room took place whenever we were out, we weren't disturbed during the mornings which was great. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. We also got an incredible price for our stay. For us, it was the best thing in Venice.

The hotel personnel was very friendly, and seemed sincere in there wanting to create a nice stay for us. Daniele went beyond the call of duty while helping us recover our backpack which we left behind on public transport. After a couple weeks of working things out, he was able to send it to us, which had everything intact - except for the cheese, salami and tomatoes which we purchased on our last day in Venice, which was probably for the best. The hotel is in a quiet, 'typical Venice location, away from the touristy area which is basically around the corner - about a 10 minutes walk. We were very happy with our stay, and even after having stayed in a 5 star hotel during our last stay in Venice (during which we brought the kids); we would chose Ca' Dogaressa as our preferred Venice hotel.

The rooms are very clean and in a very good state of decoration. A few rooms look directly onto the canal but ours didn't. It is located in a very quiet area close to the historically important Jewish ghetto but is only a few minutes walk to the Grand Canal and fairly close to both the train and bus stations. The staff were very friendly. But the real selling point for us was sitting right by the canal's edge having breakfast whilst watching people (few of them tourists) and boats going past - it was lovely!

The hotel is an easy walk from the station, and easy to find if you have a map. It's among a group of rather sad looking buildings on the edge of the Jewish quarter, and you have to go into the side street to find the hotel. Initial impressions aren't great - the carpet on the stairs leading up to the room was faded and dirty, for example, but the room, while tiny, was elegantly appointed and the bathroom spacious and spotless. Although it's a bit of a hike to the center of town, the vaporettos stop just outside, and being a bit away from the crowd is a pleasant part of the experience.

Ca'Dogaressa is a wonderful hotel--lovely room, good breakfast, charming staff! We were upgraded to one of the two suites overlooking the canal, which we loved, but also took a peek in the regular double rooms. All are spacious for Venice with lovely furnishings and great bathrooms. The location is perfect--not too far from the train/Pza. Roma but a little off Strada Nuova so quieter. The staff is very helpful with good English language skills. On our second morning tables were set up alongside the canal for breakfast. We could have spent all day there watching the boats and soaking up the sun. There are only seven rooms so reserve early. We will be back!

It was a nice and very well kept hotel - close to the train station, somewhat far from the Piazza San Marco though. The owners/managers were friendly. The rooms were very well decorated as well as very clean. We got the only room on the ground floor - right next to the reception. There was a little bit of early morning hustle/noise - but we were able to sleep through it. They served very good breakfast with the option of having it in the room or the dining hall or outside - by the canal - which was awesome!

Our first stay at a B&B. It was a wonderful experience. Staff was riendly and helpful. The owner gave his personal attention, and this was appreciated and especially welcoming. Location was great. In a quiet part of town, near a small canal. It was nice to come back to a peaceful place for the night after a busy day of sightseeing and being around other tourists. Our room was downstairs and a little small with no view. We didn't mind this because we came back exhausted to our room each night. A little noisy because it was next to the front desk and breakfast room. Easy walk to restaurants, shopping, sites and to the water taxi. Close to train station. Our stay in Venice could not have been better and we particularly enjoyed the Ca'Dogaressa. Recommend it highly to others.

The friendly owners and the cosiness of the place more than make up for the small rooms. Easy access to the vaporetto, away from the hustle and bustle of more touristy areas. The only issue was thin walls -- not good when a man next door wailed all night...likely drunk. :)

Ca´Dogaressa hace honor a su puntuación media en esta web. Es un pequeño pero cómodo y coqueto hotel al pie del Cannaregio, muy fácil de localizar tanto si se llega a Venecia por estación de tren o autobús como desde el transporte Alilaguna del aeropuerto. Habitación no muy grande pero muy limpia y cómoda. El desayuno no es muy variado, pero sí abundante. Y el personal es muy agradable y profesional; Paolo, el simpático dueño del establecimiento, proporciona una cálida bienvenida (y además se defiende en español). La localización no es muy céntrica, pero es un barrio muy tranquilo con paradas de vaporetto al pie del hotel(en ambos sentidos) y muy cercano de todo lo visitable en el antiguo Gueto Hebreo. Sin duda, una de las mejores opciones hoteleras de Venecia por relación precio/calidad.

This was our first time in Italy and we chose this hotel because of the price and location close to a vaporetto stop, which saves a lot of money on the expensive water taxis needed to get to some of the hotels on smaller canals. The owner, Paulo, was very welcoming and tried his best English for us non-Italian speakers. Our room was nicely remodelled and certainly large enough for two. We found it convenient to alot of restaurants on a main shopping street leading to the Rialto bridge.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the junior suite on the first floor, it was very spacious, and very green! The shower didn't have a shower curtain and the floors are all marble so it was quite slippery, but I gather all showers don't have shower curtains in Italian hotels? The breakfast was very average, and the hotel was a 20 minute walk from the main areas, but we probably couldn't have gotten a better deal in Venice for the size and quality of the hotel. Overall it was very good value for money though, the staff were very friendly. I did feel bad leaving the hotel and coming back late though, because the door was locked and the man at the door seemed very sleepy when he came to open it for us. When we checked out the man waived the mini bar charge, which was nice. The room was very quiet, we couldn't hear the other guests at all. It was very easy to get to the hotel from the bus station from the airport, maybe a 10 minute walk.

Hi - My daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful three days in Venice - Ca D'Ogaressa was always welcoming and comfortable to come home to after a long day sightseeing in very cold weather. Heating very good and adjustable, bathroom pristine. Good local restaurants, one recommended by Paulo (where we ate three times, very well and for a very good price), and one opposite the hotel - a little smarter and more expensive, but good food and patronised by locals - always a good sign. Everywhere easily accessible by vaporetto (make sure you get one going in the right direction though!)- or on foot if you're feeling up to it - and strongly recommend buying a pass which saves a lot. Good shopping tip from Danielli: go to the Rialto Bridge area - big range of quality, but good stuff obtainable at more sensible prices than Piazza San Marco area. As for the hotel itself - everything was fine and can confirm earlier visitors' good impressions. Only suggestion would be possibly a little more variety at breakfast (fruit? bread?) and maybe rugs on the bedroom floors during the winter months - just in case you have forgotten your slippers! Also a few drawers to put clothes in would have been useful, but not essential and we managed fine without. All in all, we can thoroughly recommend Ca' Dogaressa and hope to return one day.

I normally don't even bother to leave these comments. But this was the highlight of my girlfriend's entire trip. The hotel was awesome, the room was awesome, the staff was awesome. The hotel is nicely situated off the grand canal to offer some quiet when you need it, but it is still close to everything.

The is a small hotel (B&B) with a very welcoming, knowledgeable, friendly staff. Paolo, the owner offered much personal care and warmth. The public spaces and the room are nicely decorated; very atmospheric. The public space are small but adequate and very pleasant. Our room, #6, was small, but very adequate. Larger rooms are available according to price structure. Highly reccommended; superior to larger and more expensive hotels in the immediate area that we also experienced. We would stay there again

Extremely nice hotel with very nice people. Less than a ten minute walk from the train station. We booked a double room but they gave us their supreme room which was so beautiful and spacious. We stayed there for one night and we were willing to stay there for one more night but they had no room available for the next day. We had our breakfast (served by the hotel owner) by the canal. We enjoyed staying there a lot and recommend this hotel to everyone. Even the smell of the rooms makes you feel at home.

2 Adults 1 child. It was a very good owner managed hotel with lot of personal care and warmth. The owner(Paolo)doesnt speak much English but very helpfull and polite. Very clean, beautiful and enough space but no view in the room we stayed(room # 9). The only downside is there was no shower curtain for the bath tub, which make water to splash outside floor. It is a very minor and very low cost rectification to be carried out. The location was ezxcellent to walk around either to Rialto/San Marco or to the Railway station. Plenty of restaurants and gift shops around and also a large grocery store near by. Easy access from the Airport via Alilaguna "Orange Line" costing Euro 12 per adult(child was free may be since she is 4 yrs). The trip take around 40 mins but enjoyable.Get down at Guglie boat station and walk to your left around 300 meters. Easy to find. Good breakfast with crossants, bun/cheese, yogurt, nice bottled juice, biscuites/Jams and capachino. Can have bf by the side of the canal, which is very nice. The price may be little high but we were in high season and in Venecia! Will definitely stay again and will recomend.

This is the nicest hotel we have stayed in. The staff go out of their way to help in all aspects and make you feel at home. The exterior of the hotel is a little off putting but once inside you feel immediately at home. The hotel is located on one of the side canals where breakfast is served each day - you could sit there for hours just watching the boats go up and down. We had the smallest room but it did not seem to matter with how nice the rooms were fitted out, very clean, nice pieces of furniture and venetian lights. They have a casual eating area where other guest mentioned how the staff were more than happy to heat up lunches from food purchased.

Staying at this hotel was a great experience, people must not judge from the picture that is published because is a good and small hotel with very beautiful rooms. They gave us a nice room viewing the canal something which was really romanitc. The people in the reception were very helpful, one guy could talk greek as well. Due to the fact that we had to leave early from the hotel they prepared us a back of food to eat on the train. We suggest this hotel for the price and the quality.

Pretty good hotel indeed. We paid 110E for 1 night, and the hotel was way above my expectations. Our room was very spacious and clean with large tile floors. It had wooden cathedral ceilings and even a nice skylight on the ceiling. It takes about a 10 min walk to St. Lucia train station from this hotel, and the hotel is also close to the touristic walking path. During night the hotel surroundings looked pretty safe. I certainly would go back to this hotel again. This was the best place I stayed at throughout my trips to France and Italy.

Even though it's been about a year since I was there, the kindness of the people at the desk is memorable. They gave us a warm greeting and helped us to the room. When they heard we had an early departure the next morning, they packed us a breakfast to take with! The room we had was quiet with a view of canal that didn't have a lot of activity all hours of the day and night. My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much and would stay there again.

This hotel is a wonderful place to stay if you are travelling to Venice. The hotel is located in a quiet area of the island, directly facing the path which runs along the northern bank of the Canareggio canal, and only a hundred meters or so from edge of the lagoon (looking across the Ponte della Liberta toward the mainland). As such it is a beautifully restful part of Venice to be able to kick back and relax when you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the Grand canal and San Marco. It is only a minutes walk to the nearest Vaporetto stop 'Giuglie' and you will very quickly (only a couple of minutes later) find yourself at the railway station terminal on the Grand Canal. From this spot (the Vaporetto boat stop at 'Ferrovia') Venice is your oyster. Man I miss those boat trips up and down the canals!!! The staff were 'extremely' polite and efficient and the room was really lovely. When I go back to Venice, this is definitely where I am going to be staying. They helped make our stay in Venice a truly wonderful experience.

Honestly we could not fault this Hotel (our first time there). It had style,elegance and absolute attention to every detail. Our no 1 bedroom was state of the art with a beautiful bathroom. The staff were just so friendly and helpful. It would have been better if there was a larger dining area for breakfast but it was adequate but breakfast could hve been a little more imaginative. Certainly go there again.

The location on the canal was great and our suite overlooked the canal so it was a great way to start the day. The only comment is that it is betterto haev breakfast downstairs as there is a marginally better choice of food available, although the breakfast is very basic. We only spent three days in Venice but would return to the hotel again.

This was our second visit to Venice and we wanted to do it in winter to see the fog and quietness of the city plus stay in another part of town. We got all of that plus more. The hotel was great and it was exactly as described and pictured on the website. The vaporetti is very close and very easy to access the airport. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated with pristine bathroom. Daniele, the hotel manager, was a pleasure to work with and was very helpful with restaurant recommendations. The night staff speak limited English but not as helpful as Daniele. They even surprised us with a bottle of prosecco since we were celebrating our anniversary. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Venice.

We stayed at Ca Dogaressa in early Sept and found it to be as wonderful as described by most other reviewers! The exterior shots do not do it justice. Highly recommend the junior suites - spacious, private & with terrific views over Canareggio Canal. The roof top terrace is a good spot for enjoying the sunset & breakfast by the canal is a very Venice experience. We found the owners & staff helpful & charming. The location is away from the busier tourist areas. Exploring the canals behind the hotel you can even find yourself alone. Some good local restaurants nearby too. This was our favorite hotel in a 6 week Italian holiday.

Das Hotel (wir hatten die Junior Suite) ist hervorragend gelegen. Nahe Bus- und Bahnstation, nahe einer Vaporetten-Station, genau richtige Entfernung zum San Marco (20min zu Fuß). Das Zimmer war groß, sauber und ruhig mit tollem Ausblick auf einen schönen Kanal. Das Hotel wird von außerordentlich freundlichen Mitarbeitern (Besitzerfamilie?)betrieben. Wir erhielten freundliche und kompetente Hilfestellung bei der Restaurantauswahl und -buchung. Das Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis ist sehr gut.
