Lovely, quaint hotel in a great location!Posted Oct 8, 2013
Pros: Breakfast, location and cleanliness of the rooms
Cons: thicker curtians. At night, the light from the light post shines through the room and makes it tough to sleep
Location: Lots of great shops, great bar on the corner and tons of restaurants close by
Great hotel in a good quiet location. Great staff and breakfast is brought to your room every morning!

No tourist crushPosted Jun 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel is in the relatively quiet Dorsoduro section, close to the Academia and to the Peggy Guggenheim collection. PRO: quiet street; nice and helpful manager/owner; CON: manager not always on site; when you ring him from front door he buzzes the door open, and your key is on the desk; breakfast is served in room, where it is not very comfortable to eat; towels are changed only every 2 days. NOTE: in Venice you must walk with your luggage to hotel; every canal has a bridge with steps. You can get to this hotel by going over some of only a few bridges that have had a ramp installed. Here's how; take the (5.2 or other) Vaporetto to Zattere; exit and turn right; walk along the waterfront over two bridges; turn left at the big church (just in front of the no.6 Vaporeto stop) onto Calle Monestero, which becomes a narrow path about 1m wide; turn left onto Calle del Navaro; turn right where you see a religious niche onto Salizada del Forno; the second street is Calle delle Mende where the B&B is located.

A good basic optionPosted May 22, 2013
Cons: Miniscule "bathroom"
Location: Just moments from the Academia and the Guggenheim but away from the worst of the tourist drag
The Ca San Vio is not a hotel it is a Bed and Breakfast. As such all you will get is a room and a limited breakfast brought to you on a tray. The owners are only there in the mornings to deliver breakfast and make up the rooms although they are perfectly friendly and helpful if you have a question. If all you want from your accomodation is somewhere to lay your head then the San Vio is ideal not least because of the location. However the rooms are small and the bathrooms tiny. If you are on the gound floor (room 2) as I was then there is not a lot of natural light to be had: the window looks out into a narrow alleyway. Venice is an expensive city and the Ca San Vio does not break the tradition although you will be unlikely to find anything better for the price. I will certainly consider staying there again next time I visit

Good place to stay in venice.Posted Apr 9, 2013
A little difficult to find. Once familiar w the location ends up being a good place to stay. Hotel staff were very nice and helpful.

Ca San Vio is NicePosted Oct 18, 2011
Ca San Vio is a nice little hotel. The rooms are clean and the hotel is very quiet and in a great location. Marco at the front desk is very helpful and brings a nice continental breakfast every morning. The desk is not staffed 24 hours but that is OK because the front door entry buzzer seems to be linked to Marco wirelessly and he leaves the key for you inside when you checkin. My only suggestion for improvement is replacing the mattress which was a little on the worn out side, other than that a great stay.

Charming hotel, great locationPosted Aug 27, 2010
We stayed here for three nights, never having been to Venice before. The location is great, though be prepared for a long walk or to pay for the water taxi, as it's quite far from the train station and airport. The rooms were clean and comfortable, as were the bathrooms, and the owners were very friendly and courteous. It was a little overpriced relative to other places we stayed in Italy, but that seems to be the norm in Venice... everything is more expensive. However, it's a great deal for the price (given the location) and we would definitely stay here again.

A Charming Pensione in VenicePosted Apr 22, 2010
We stayed at Ca' San Vio for two weeks, and I would definitely return. The neighborhood is extremely convenient: 2 minutes from the Guggenheim Museum and the Academia Bridge, and five minutes from the Zattere airport shuttle boat stop. It's about 10 minutes from San Marco Square, but without all of the noise and congestion. The room was small, but very comfortable. The walls are covered in silk fabric, which added to the quiet aura of the pensione. Because the Ca' is a few blocks from the Grand Canal, the neighborhood is more residential and very quiet. The bathroom was immaculate, and while not luxurious, it was certainly adequate. The continental breakfast was delivered to our room, and the food was fresh and tasty. There's also WiFi access in the room for a very nominal fee. And the Ca' is close to lots of restaurants and cafes. During our stay, some of our relatives joined us, and they were placed in the room next door. We were able to keep the doors open and visit back and forth, whcih added to the fun of our stay. We paid a bit less than expected, and Marco gave us a Murano glass cheese cutter as a going away present. Ca' San Vio is reasonable, convenient, clean, and friendly. We were very pleased, and I'm sure we'll stay there on our next trip to Venice.
