We stayed 3 nights at the end of Carnaval and returned a couple days later for another night. Alessia, the manager, and all the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful from the moment we made our reservation & throughout our stay. The rooms were beautifully decorated & with nice baths, the breakfast area was very nice & food was perfect to start the day. The location was perfect: 10-15 minutes to train/bus/Rialto Bridge. Roof deck was awesome. Staircase was a little narrow, but this is a 15th century building. Highly recommend!

I was traveling with my husband and my son (14 yrs). The hotel staff was very friendly and welcoming. Our room was nice and clean, but not at all spacious. Indeed, it was a bit small for 3 persons, but given the fact that we were around in Venice all day long, it was ok. I recommend the Ca' San Polo for people who appreciate a nice little hotel in a nice "sestiere" of Venice.

The staff was very friendly, accommodating, efficient, and communicated well in English. The rooms were clean and quiet despite overlooking a rather busy calle. The air conditioning worked very well. The breakfasts were excellent with fresh croissants delivered every morning, though the breakfast room is a bit small for the number of guests. The location, though a bit difficult to find, is also excellent; only a short walk to the Rialto bridge and market and an even shorter walk to the nearest vaporetto stop; also many shops, bars and restaurants only steps away.

We stayed for three nights and were very comfortable. The staff were wonderful especially as 2 of our party of 3 went down with a stomach bug. It is in the centre of Venice and within easy walking distance of both St Mark's Square and the Rialto Bridge - what a pity about the grafitti on the latter. The rooftop terrace was a great advantage and a nice place to sit on a warm evening with a bottle of Peroni beer. The roofscapes of Venice are fascinating.

Great location for town centre sights, Getting to hotel with large luggage is easy with watertaxi stop just around the corner. Watertaxi route to hotel is down Grand canal and has fantastic views, so no need to pay for seperate boat trip (save 30 euro on taxi online at Venicelink). Very competant and helpful reception staff. Breakfast room is small and can get congested so allow plenty of time. Family room size was cosy, but Ok and the Aircon was fine. Venice prices are very high and hotel offers good value for money.

This hotel is really nice! From the streetside it is not more than a frontdoor, so you almost feel like an inhabitant of Venice. The personel was very friendly, the room in 'Venice style' and the hotel is situated close to all nice spots in the city. The breakfast was really good for such a small hotel. And ... they had a small roofterrace were you could relax and view the city of Venice.

Extremely welcoming and helpful staff (+ English speaking). I walked from Piazzale Roma to the hotel; it was easy to find. You can narrow down directions by asking for Campo dei Frari, then the street/s; the hotel has little signs to it high up on nearby walls. Staff can recommend local bacari etc, with their discount.

The Hotel Ca'San Polo was a very pleasant and friedly small hotel in the very centre of Venice. Everything within short walking distance. Our family of 4 (two adults, two teenagers) got the only 4-bedroom available. It was a bit small for four beds, but clean, beatiful and with good bathroom standard. The breakfast included was very good, and the coffee lovely. The staff was very friendly and helpful with everything we asked for: Directions, maps, activities and even opening the breakfast room extra early on our departure day, when we had to leave early.

The main thing about staying any place in Venice not on the Grand Canal is FINDING it! I had tried to map it from the S. Thoma vaparetto stop, but became confused right away. In the first main square we spied a real estate office and by going in there and having them put in the address, we got a more detailed map of that immediate area. We found it easily with this help. Once you find it you should be OK, but it is helpful to note shops and other landmarks in the vicinity. It is a city like an anthill! Ricardo, the new manager, welcomed us and helped get the bags up the first steps off the street. He speaks several languages and is very accommodating. Buffet breakfast is excellent, the do-it-yourself coffee machine is great! Quiet except for occasional person standing in the alley below smoking and talking on their cell phone. Air conditioned. Our room had windows on 2 sides for cross vent. Bathroom spacious with a new shower stall. Plenty of soap and towels. Our room looked like the photo. Beds in Italy are typically a bit on the hard side as only one mattress thick. But we slept well. The linens are usually very nice and 100% cotton. We had not planned to walk to the train station on Sunday morning, but the Grand Canal was actually CLOSED till 3pm that day!!! Good thing we allowed extra time and did not have too much luggage. We just followed the signs pointing to the "Ferrovia" or train station. At least it was well marked in a city where things are poorly marked! A nice man helped us get our mother and bags over the big bridge in front of the train station. Otherwise it was flat going.

Petit déjeuner excellent avec patisseries italiennes et café de grande qualité. Quartier calme et possibilité de garder les bagages le jour du départ... dans le hall gardé.

Spent 2 nights in this hotel with my wife and my 2 children. Very cosy family room decorated in the venitian colors, good beds, perfect bathroom. Excellent situation near a vaporetto station, in walking distance from railway station and from the most touristic areas (rialto bridge etc.). Many shops and restaurants nearby. Rather quiet, though. Only the breakfast could be improved (a real fruit juice would be a plus), and the air conditioning wasn't working. In conclusion we would strongly recommend this place.

A great place to explore Venice. In a small, quiet alley a short walk from the Grand Canal and Rialto bridge, the small nature of the hotel is compensated for by the great welcome and friendly attentive attention from the staff. The room are all stylish in a typical Venetian way, quiet and comfortable. Breakfasts were great in a neat dining room area with a terrific balcony option upstairs.

This was our first visit to Venice, so we had a hard time finding Ca' San Polo on the Venice "streets". Once we arrived, Damiono welcomed us and was extremely gracious and helpful with directions, luggage and transportation. The location is great near the Grand Canal and relatively close to all the sites. Our quad room was clean and the entire property was the nicest of our stay in Italy. The only slight downside was the AC in our room on the top floor could not overcome the outside late June heat and it was a little warm over night. Overall, we would recommend Ca' San Polo.

We were very pleased to stay at Ca San Polo. Our room was exceptionally (in Venice standards!) spacious and bathroom was very clean and new. Staff was very friendly and kind, it was a pleasure to chat with them. Breakfast was very good too. The location may not look very central but it is very close to the vaporetto stop and also is away from the tackiness of San Marco square. Walking back to the hotel gave us the chance of peeking through more residential parts of Venice, which was a wonderful experience with lovely small canals, beautiful houses (where people actually live!). I strongly recommend Ca Macana for mask shopping, very close to the hotel, too!

Bearing in mind the price I felt the hotel should have had a lounge at the very least. As the room was modest in size it felt overall rather restrictive. The breakfast was exactly the same each day.

To live in Cà San Polo is exactly as to live in a Venetian house, therefore you have not a great reception in front of a street, but a simple little door in a calle, then a staircase and at the first floor the receptionist, friendly and helpful with a lot of information, if you need it. A Venetian room with a wooden-beam ceiling, large for Venetian standards. Great! A comfortable bath-room and a very good ratio quality/price for Venice. Only breakfast could have been better. An hotel located just in the centre of the basic directions in venice: railway station-San Tomà-Accademia; Rialto-San Tomà-Accademia-San Marco. Close to Canal Grande, the church of Frari, Campo Santa Margherita and the church of Carmini. An hotel suited to the lover of Venice!

The only thing I couln't believe it is that if someone smokes at whathever room, there is an alarm that makes stop the whole system in the Hotel, then you have to wait for 20 minutes until the systems get going again...so to have hot watter!!...the room costs 140.00 euros ...That is the only thing that I can not understand.But If I travel to venice again I would repeat for sure, I recomend it.

I had only two problems with the hotel. First, I needed internet access and they have only wireless, which did not reach my room, and did not work with my computer when it was within coverage in the breakfast room. They also did not have cable/ethernet direct access. All this was quite a pain due to my working the week I was there. Note I have a Macintosh which also is sometimes problematic in Europe. Second, like absolutely anyplace in Venice, there is a lot of street noise, mainly people walking (boot heels make a LOT of noise on the ubiquitous stone pavement). The only way to avoid this is to find a room not facing onto a walkway, which is not all that easy. I need to add, however, that we tend to sleep with the window open a bit for fresh air, which amplifies the problem. If you keep the windows closed you'll have no problems. But you very likely will have neither problem which were peculiar to ourselves. The hotel is quite warm and accommodating, very central to a wonderful part of Venice, off the major tourist areas. I would go back on my next stay.

The hotel is 10 minutes walk to the Rialto Bridge. You have to take the vaporetto! 13 Euros a day, you can take as often you want the vaporettos. And you have a beautiful sight from Venice - which you won't have just by walking.

Looking out the window in the morning...hearing the sounds of the surrounding restaurants and businesses added a special charm and sweetness. Walking distance to good restaurants and the sites of Venice. We enjoyed it. Our quad room was small but clean and just fine for one night.

We enjoyed the employees most of all. They were just wonderful! Paolo, especially, hospitable and just a nice person. The person that was there on our arrival was also very welcoming and very gracious.(Can't remember his name) We were only at this location for one night while in route to another. The place was immaculate and bathroom too!(marble/tile fixtures) We didn't care that the place was small because we typically are out in the city while vacationing. They recommended a wonderful restaurant literally at the bottom of the stairs and three doors away(Trattoria da IGNAZIO-beautiful outdoor courtyard-food was wonderful!) Would definately come back to Ca'San Polo. Small,quaint,quiet.

Unser Venedigbesuch dauerte von Montag bis Freitag. Das Hotel liegt etwa 10 bis 15 Gehminuten vom Busterminal (Piazzale Roma) entfernt und ist gut zu Fuß zu erreichen. Das Hotel ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt um die Stadt zu erkunden. An der Rezeption wurde auch deutsch gesprochen, so dass wir gute Empfehlungen vom sehr freundlichen Hotel-Manager bekamen. Die Zimmer sind wie fast überall in Venedig nicht sehr geräumig. Da wir uns aber selten dort aufgehalten haben, war dies ohne Belang. Das Hotel würde für einen weiteren Besuch unsere erste Wahl darstellen.

This hotel was well located near the tourist attractions. The rooms were very clean and the bathroom was fully equipped with good quality towels, soaps, etc. The management and breakfast staff were courteous and helpful. The breakfast was continental and served in a lovely room. There was a small rooftop sitting area. There was not much of a view on the 2nd floor but that is expected when you see how close the buildings are to each other. The 3rd floor offered more view. The air conditioning was silent and at the perfect temperature. It was summer and very hot and humid outside, so it was nice to come back to a cool and comfortable room.

The Hotel is located at the hearth of Venice, and is not too far from the nearby Vaporeto (water bus) station. Ftom the train station is about 20 mins in Vaporeto. Is compact, but nice and the rooms are clean and well furnished, if somewhat small. I stayed in a family suite with 3 beds (two doubles one single). The bathroom is nic e and the airconditioning work very well. The breakfast is provided in a spacious room and is reasonably good. The only complain is that the sound proofing of the rooms is poor, and thus noise from other rooms can be heard (or you can be asked to be quiet like in my case as the guest in the nearby room compained about our usual chatter before going to bed - nothing extraordinary but we are five). It is easy to go from the Hotel to many attractions in Venice by water bus or walking. There is no Internet access. The staff was courteous.

My wife and I had difficulty finding the hotel, but that's probably common for first-time visitors to Venice. We thought the hotel was well maintained, the staff were most helpful, and the location was good. There is a luggage elevator, but guests must be prepared to climb fairly narrow stairs to access the main desk and their rooms. Like most North Americans would, we found our room very small. We travelled with two medium sized suitcases and two smaller, and were hardpressed to navigate the room with our luggage taking up most of the floor space. The decor was pleasant and the electronic security system, including safe, was very good. The bed was good; the bathroom modern, clean and well supplied.

The cost for superior room was £200 yet to me it did not appear to be superior.In the hotel specification it appeared there would be an elevator for the guests to use but it was not the case.It was difficult to take a suitcase up 4 flights of staircase. Please could you specify that the elevator is not for the customer.My husband found it difficult as he is over 65 and suffers from high blood pressure.

Liked clean newly renovated bathroom and amenities. Excellent air conditioning. Service was very good. A little hard to find on the first try but, once familiar with the general area, it was easy to find. Nice quiet neighborhood but also close to some major tourist attractions. Guests have to be able to climb stairs.

Having arrived by sleeper at 9.30am, we were too early to use our room, but the staff warmly welcomed us, took our luggage and suggested places to visit until our room was ready. They also stored our luggage on our last day. I found the hotel easily, despite the confusing map, due to the discreet direction signs on the route from San Tomas vaparetto. The elevator was a boon, as my wife has mobilty problems. The room was ideal for us, very comfortable bed, spotless bathroom with a powerful shower. the personal safe is very useful to keep spare cash and passports. Breakfast was very good with a wide choice. The breakfast room is small, so if you have a pressing appointment, it pays to be early or you may have to wait 10 minutes. This was our first visit to Venice and I don't think we could have picked a more welcoming place to stay. I will certainly use the hotel again.

Hotel Ca'San Polo is definitely a worth staying hotel. Although the reception desk area is small but the 2 Superior Quadruple room that we stayed in were satisfying. The rooms are very clean and cosy. Besides that, the location of the hotel is good. It is close to many restaurants and shops. My friends and I are very happy and satisfied with our stay in Hotel Ca'San Polo.

Nice rooms and good service. Recently renovated with nice bathroom. Nice surroundings in the San Palo area. A good walk to the Rialto bridge or Accademia bridge to get to the sights on the north side of the Grand Canal. Be sure to have a map and the location of the hotel on the map before you head out. We received bad directions at the airport (they must have been thinking of a different hotel) and had a difficult time finding the hotel. Great assistance from local restaurants to find it eventually. Luckily our bags were still in Zurich so we were not lugging them with us.

The hotel doesn't look like much from the outside but is very charming on the inside. Our room was spacious and nicely furnished. The spotless, modern bath was welcome. Breakfast room was lovely and served varied bkfst items to please young and old. Front desk staff were most helpful and pleasant. Good location for discovering Venice. 15 minute walk (approx.) to train station - with kids and bags! No lift and tight quarters going up and down the stairs to rooms though.

As we have prepared a proper map, found the place of the hotel easily even my first trip to Venice. It was only 10-15 min walk from Rome square(bus terminal). Were offered a free trip to Murano by water-taxi, for which we did not feel exterme obligations to buy something there. It was good decision. The quadro room are not big, but would be acceptable. Air-condition equipped would be great if we were staying during summer. Breakfast provided with basic stuff only, e.g. bread, ham, cheese, yougult, juice and coffee at limited space, but also acceptable. Not so far away to Rialto. Recommendable for tourists, but maybe depending upon a price.

I've been to Venice many times, both as a bachelor and now with a family with young children and I have to say that Ca' San Polo is our favorite. The pictures accurately show the size of the rooms. During this particular trip, we traveled with my brother and his wife. I booked the superior room for them and it was larger than any room I've see in a 4 star hotel in Venice. For my family of 4 we took a suite (one room) which had a sofa bed which was more than enough. The actual (parents) bed was a king-size bed, so when the 5 and 8 year old climbed into it, we hardly noticed. But the size of the rooms are only a small part of the Venice experience. Truly, no one spends a single moment dawdling in their room when the wonders of Venice abound. The manager, Fabio, was particularly helpful giving us better recommendations for restaurants than any of the guide books. One night, the staff not only booked our water taxi, but walked us over to the launching point so to save us as much time as possible. Of course if there are chocolate croissants on the breakfast table and jump-ready beds, our kids are happy. And you have to love the Italians who generally appreciate children, particularly at this hotel. We booked two babysitters though the hotel. We felt so comfortable with them that we gave her some money to take the children out for gelato. The location in San Polo is much much better than being in the heart of San Marco, so for first timers, I recommend starting right and avoiding the crowds around where you stay. There is still fantastic (and less expensive) shopping, great pizza and gelaterias around the corner, and the best wine store I've seen in Venice within 10 minutes walk. And besides, it's much more quiet, so if you like to sleep past the break of dawn, you won't be awoken if the windows are open. Regarding this hotel, the last anecdote I have to leave is the one about our departure. My family and I were on our way to Tuscany and lo and behold,

Really not a bad hotel for the price! The only downfall was that we had reserved a smoking room on-line, but once there, we were told that the entire hotel was non-smoking. As most smokers know, it would have been nice to know that before hand. Also, we woke up every morning at the foot of the bed due to the fact that the floor was uneven. Breakfast was also included in the price and was actually quite delightful. For those who stay at this hotel, try out the restaurant in front of the hotel and let the waiter know that you were referred to them by the hotel, you'll get excellent service and great food for a reasonable price.

We had reserved a quad and arrived early in the day. There were some off-property rentals available at the same price which worked out great for us - an appartment at the price of a hotel room, 10 minutes from the hotel! Staff was very friendly, breakfasts were very good and the value for money was great. I would not hesitate to return and have suggested the Ca'San Polo to friends for their trip to Venise. A word of caution, do not follow the map on the site - go to Campo San Polo and head west, look for the little yellow signs...

I would definitely stay at Ca' San Polo in the future simply because of the service that we experienced from the concierge, Marco. Marco was fully of helpful advice regarding local restaurants and entertainment. Marco also helped us plan our trip throughout Italy, recommending great places to stay and things to see. He provided a great first impression for our stay in Italy. Our rooms were quite clean and very spacious considering the lack of space in Venice! The roof top patio also has a great view of the city.

The staff were very good , particularly Marco, who met us at the canal and advised us on restaurants etc. He also showed us the best way to get back to our car and was generally very helpful and pleasant. The room was decorated in real plush Venetian style with beautiful wall coverings and opulent curtains. It was a bit cramped with 4 of us but we didn't mind as we spent little time there and the staff make it pleasant. The breakfast was good , but not spectacular.

As first time visitors to this beautiful city, our only challenge was finding the hotel. Once the water taxi drops you off at the Rialto Bridge stop, (arriving from the airport) you still have to make your way across the bridge to the other side. (Not an easy task for a family of four with luggage). You then have to try to find the hotel through the many narrow streets. It took us a while, but we finally arrived to an extremely friendly and helpful reception. Our room was a little small, but we enjoyed the cozy European atmosphere. The breakfast was good, I enjoyed being able to help myself to a coffee and take it back to my room. The location is good for walking to the main tourist attractions. There is also good shopping in the immediate area, we found prices lower on this side of the bridge. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

My only complaint about the Hotel Ca' San Polo is that it is so Teeny. I stayed there with my wife and 2 children and we had a quadruple room it was VERY SMALL. The room was very nice and the bathroom was small but fine but it really was not meant for 4 people. The other thing people should know is that there is no lift in the hotel. You must walk through the door and right away is a flight of steps. The breakfast room which is tight is up 3 flights. The staff was very friendly. The walk from the San Toma vaperetto stop is short, but ask directions because it is complicated. I might stay again but I would get 2 rooms for 4 people.
