Loved this hotel - the staff were very friendly and loved where it was situated. Reasonably priced and very clean too. A buffet breakfast was great too. Best for location as you can walk anywhere and lots of restaurants nearby.
Stayed early March, weather cold and wet but warm and professional welcome from staff. We booked a classic room which though small was cosy and comfortable with a fab view of the lagoon. Continental breakfast was fresh and plentiful.
Great location, quiet neighbourhood but just...More
We booked a 3 night stay at Hotel Ca’ Formenta after reading the great reviews online and the very reasonable price! We arrived at the hotel after midnight due to a late flight out and check in was completed within minutes. When we walked into...More
I had a lovely stay at Ca' Formenta. I adore this part of Venice, especially at night, and it's great to walk from here and explore all Venice has to offer. Don't forget the park - fab place to have a delicious coffee :-) and...More
We returned home yesterday after a four night stay & was a bit apprehensive before we arrived because I had chosen the hotel & made the booking & the price we paid was such good value, but I needn't have worried because the hotel is...More
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.

Waterbus. Tell them you want to get off at The Aresenale stop. When you get off walk over 2 bridges ( away from san Marco) ..The hotel is on the left. In from the lagoon. The road junctions. It's inbetween 2 restaurants. If you get a chance walk along the laggon edge to the park.

Dear Mrs. Trinch,
from the Airport Marco Polo you can take a Water Taxi direct to our Hotel jetty, the taxi can take up to 8 people plus luggage; the cost for 6 people and luggage should be 120.00/130.00 Euro and the ride will take only 30 minutes.
You can also reserve it in advance from the Venezia Taxi website
In alternative there is the public Shuttle Boat ALILAGUNA Blue Line to Arsenale, it cost 15.00 Euro per person and takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
If you send us a direct email we can provide you with detailed instructions on a pdf file.
Looking forward to the pleasure of hearing further from you, we remain,
with best regards,
Marco Simonetto, Manager
