Sad face IconDisliked: Amenities
This hotel is quite small and cramped. Location is nice but for the $, not a great value. They charged us for coffee in the afternoon and the complimentary breakfast was not so good. No hot items and no room to sit down to enjoy, 2 tables out front of hotel are at least with a view of the water. Would not choose to stay here again.

Great Hotel location for the Venice Biennale.
My wife & I have stayed quite a few times before at Hotel Ca’ Formenta and undoubtedly this is the best located Hotel in Venice to visit the 2 main Biennale sites which are only a few minutes walk away. The hotel is also conveniently located a short walk away from Arsenale boat stop which is reached fairly quickly by the Alilaguna red or blue lines from Marco Polo airport. Initially I was very disappointed to arrive late afternoon & be allocated an inferior ground floor dark, dingy and airless room for the first night of 3. However on request the Hotel did move us to a much nicer and airy Junior suite for the next 2 nights which more than made up for this. A big thumbs up to the Hotel management for sorting this out in a polite and efficient manner. Apart from the excellent location, the hotel is kept very clean & is run smoothly, the breakfast is more than adequate & the hot water for showers is copious. Venice hotels are not exactly cheap but Ca Formenta usually represents fair value for money relative to competitors. The only downside are that mattresses are extremely firm & unyielding. Sleep quality is something that many hotels are judged by so perhaps the hotel should review this situation. Also, I have been visiting for over 10 years now & the decor looks “tired” & has not changed at all in that time. Perhaps a refurbishment would help freshen things up. I would book again due to the great location but it would be great to see some investment.

The hotel is well localized at one end of via Garibaldi, mainly when the main intention is to see the Bienal (our case). Close to the Arsenale, it is possible to see it from the water boat coming from the airport. The room had an old decoration but wi-fi, refrigerator, TV and shower were working properly. There is a supermarket and many restaurants nearby.
