Once home to the Venetian painter Giacomo Favretto, the most representative of the city's "realista" school during the second half of the nineteenth century, Ca'Favretto opens up from silent, shaded side streets onto a stunning view of the Grand Canal Originally built in the fourteenth-century, the home served throughout the years as residence to some of the more important Venetian noble families until 1951 when it was transformed into a "pensione". San Cassiano now offers discriminating guests the timeless ambiance of a historical Venetian home with elegantly furnished rooms and the tranquil charm of one of the city's older neighborhoods. The rooms all have a private bathroom with hair dryer and towel warmer, direct-dial telephone, satellite television, minibar, radio, and air conditioning. Based on individual needs, hotel guests can chose from various types of rooms. The hotel boasts several rooms directly along the Grand Canal and the famed Ca'd'Oro. Spacious and luxurious, these rooms are not just ideal for newlyweds or romantics, but for all those enamored with the magic of Venice-the washing water, the boats gliding past, and the serenades from the gondolas that slip down the canal. Furnished in eighteenth-century Venetian style with precious fabrics, "marmorino" walls, mosaic floors, gold-leafed sconces and headboards, the superior rooms offer guests the possibility to sojourn in a relaxing, spacious, and bright environment overlooking the courtyard or the side canal. For those travelers interested in economy without sacrificing style and comfort, the standard rooms are the right solution while for friends and families, the hotel offers triple and quadruple rooms with complimentary cribs for children under three. The hotel offers Airport transfer, Internet access-High-Speed, bar, Lobby, Non-smoking rooms, Reception, Room service, Safe deposit box, Tour desk. Breakfast included.

A tax has been imposed by the city for stays beginning 1 October 2012, and will be collected directly at the property. The tax ranges from EUR 1 to EUR 5 per person, per night.

Fantastic Venice Location

The Residenza d'Epoca Ca'Favretto is a 400 yr old residence that sits directly on the Grand Canal of Venice. Breakfast was included in this stay and was quite good and catered to both American and European tastes. The rooms were comfortable and pleasantly adorned. Regardless of the number of maps you have, be prepared to get lost in Venice and enjoy that part of the adventure

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The independent water taxis are rather expensive, so on our arrival we used the Alilaguna public water bus directly from the airport and the walk to the hotel was short and pleasant, not to mention the scenic ride along the canal.

Great views, quiet location, funky decor

Great little hotel on the grand cannel. Staff great, breakfast just right (contental plus egg & bacon). Hotel in 18th century decor which fits in great. Approx 3 minute walk to Rialto bridge, 15 minutes to San Marco. Directions: - Water taxi straight to hotel doc - Water bus to San Stae stop then approx 300m walk. When we were there the bin in San Stae had a map giving directions advertised on it

This hotel is located near the water. Make sure you have a lightweight suitcase or take water taxi directly to the hotel, rather than walk

Very good location

This hotel is very good for a short stay (1 to 3 nights) and is very well located. The bar is a bit disappointing and could be better managed but a part from that and money wise the hotel is good.
