Went for a wedding anniversary and had a very nice stay. The service at the desk could be sometimes more friendly (coming from latin american standards), but the overall impression is very good: extremely well located, just far enough from the crowded places, with a...More
We would happily recommend this hotel: comfortable and full of character, and the staff are friendly and impressively multi-lingual. The rooms are sparklingly clean, but what sets this apart from most hotels is its splendid location. The hotel is located opposite the famous Ca' D'oro,...More

We are from the US so we always travel with electrical converter plugs. The hotel has what I understand are the usual "European" outlets so we used our two-prong converter to allow us to use our US-manufactured devices safely. Hope this helps. If you run into problems sometimes hotels have "loaner" plugs (sometimes people forget them and leave them behind; same is true with charger cords) which the concierge may collect and have available. Just a thought... Enjoy your trip!

We were a little bewildered about this ourselves but after a little research decided that the Alilaguna water taxi was the best (only? cheapest?) way to go. At the Airport ask for directions to the connecting terminal (you should be looking for the orange line/Linea Arancio). There are convenient 'walk-a-lators' which will spare you a long hike! As I recall, a one-way ticket is 15Euros (steep, but so is all of Venice). Get off at the 5th stop (San Stae--the 'conductor' will let you know and help you off-load your bags). The stop is at the open square in front of a church. Cross the square going to your left (Grand Canal behind you) and look for a small iron-railed bridge. That's the starting point to your walk to the hotel. There was a trash barrel just by the bridge with a map of the route to the Ca'Favretto which was very helpful. Take a picture with your cell phone or sketch the map to use as a reference. Watch for landmarks as you go as you will undoubtedly use San Stae as your chief vaporetto stop for the hotel when you tour around the city. Have fun! Get lost! It's a small town and you cant go too far without coming to water eventually. Use the vaporetto (more a 'water subway' than a 'taxi')! Good luck!
