We have just returned from what was a very special stay at Casa Dodici, in the Bridgit Bardot room. This lovely little boutique hotel is a hidden gem waiting to be explored; from opulent interiors, to beautiful views of the Leonardo da Vinci canal, to staff who go the extra mile to ensure you have an unforgettable stay, this hotel comes highly recommended by myself and my partner. If you would like to dine in, the hotel has a fantastic seafood restaurant on street level, where you can sit outside, sip a glass or two of wine and watch the world go by...perfect! On a final note, the package we booked with the hotel included bike hire for a weeks stay, as well as sun loungers and parasol at one of the local beaches which was great. Have an amazing stay..

Great service, kind personel, wonderful room, small and quite hotel and great location near the Porto canale in a quite and pitoresque area but still very close to train station. Would definite go back to this hotel!!
We spent two nights at Casa Dodici. It was a delight. From the room “B.B.” we had a spectacular balcony view over the canal and the maritime museum boats. A few logistical notes for other travelers: The entrance is off a pedestrian road, about half a block in from a main road. One can drive to the front, but we found it easier to use the free parking in front of the train station and walk. The train is 1.5 blocks away. The beach is a 10 min walk It took us 40 minutes to get to Ravenna by car. We did have to call the owner when we got there. (We found him in the restaurant below.) The number is on the door. We would love to go back! Fantastic trip.
So pleased with our choice to stay here in the delightful town of Cesenatico. This is a beautiful little restaurant with rooms by the canal and overlooking the pretty boats of the maritime museum. So good we rebooked it for the end of our holiday. Our room was Birkin, very quiet and cool and quite big enough, with an excellent shower room. Breakfast was served upstairs with fresh fruit and juice, pastries and savoury rolls to enjoy by the wonderful wooden table. Dinners in the downstairs restaurant were based on the local fish catch, but fine dining. The bread was freshly baked, pasta homemade, desserts very nice indeed. Thank you Maurizio!
We were really disappointed about our stay at casa dodici as it was the most expensive place we stayed during our trip to Italy and was described as 'boutique' and had good reviews. We arrived in the rain, mid afternoon and were left outside soaking wet ringing the door bell with no answer. After a while we called the number on the website and were told there was no receptionist and customers were to call on arrival which we were not informed about and there was no sign on the door. After a few minutes a woman who was clearly not a manager came over, showed us to our room then left. She didn't even ask who we were or check ID. We were not given any information or told where and when breakfast would be served (despite being a BnB, the breakfast is an additional cost, which seems crazy at the price we paid for the room). The room only had 1 flat pillow per person and no hand soap in the bathroom. This was clearly a mistake as when we came in the next day we had extra pillows and soap. However it is not acceptable to not have anyone on site to speak to or ask for things. We stayed for 3 days and didn't really speak with anyone. We only bumped into the owner very briefly outside the front if the property on our 3rd day. When it came to check out, our card had been processed and reciept left on the reception desk which a cleaner showed us to sign after we wandered around looking for someone to check us out. No one even asked if we needed anything or even if we had enjoyed our stay. We stayed at 3 other much cheaper bnbs during our travels in italy with wonderful breakfasts included and incredibly caring and attentive hosts so we're very surprised that casa dodici didn't even nearly match those standards. On a positive note the room was very clean, well presented and the shower is excellent. Good location also.
We stayed here for 2 nights in May. Wonderful decor. Absolutely spotless. Beautiful rooms and gorgeous location. The only trouble we had was parking. Because it was a Sunday it was really busy so we had to drive round a bit to find a space as you can't park at the property. Most of the parking is free. The train station is 5 minutes away. The owner also has a restaurant below the accommodation and we enjoyed a wonderful meal by the canal. Excellent food and wine.
We stayed for 6 nights back in Aug 13 (sorry about the v.v. late review !!!!) Maurizio is a class above. He's a hard working, attention to details man with some real charm and zest, that ensures perfection of stay for his guests. He is also a great restauranteur who owns a couple of restaurants that are simply superb. We ate in both and it was lovely and delicious - the owner is fastidious about using absolutely the best ingredients, with elegant or sazzy service depending on the restaurant (the Dodici or the Pizzeria respectively). The breakfasts were delightful and served with a panache and splendor that only Maurizio can do. The decor and artworks throughout the bedrooms and common areas will appeal to all the aesthetic seekers. The place is quite stunning, tasteful and artistic - a real pleasure on the heart and soul - your spirit is in a good place at Dodici, & not to forget the lovely music that plays in the background at breakfast time. Understated elegance really quite eclectic - a significant palace for the soul. The stay was truly special for us and we will return. Petros, Rula & Oliver
Excellent place - location, design , service - really a great experience. I do recommend also the restaurant in the place - really great diner! We had a family suit in the attic , 2 + 2, and it was really very nice. Maurizio serves the breakfast in a nice living/dinning room at one big table for all the guests - a nice start of the day. I asked for a gluten-free bread and Maurizio bought it for me immediatelly - it was no rpoblem for him. I do recommend this place very much.
Simply said: I couldn't miss our yearly visit to Cesenatico to stay in the wonderfully accommodated Casa Dodici and eat in their superb restaurant along the beautiful Leonardo da Vinci canal. Yes Venice is beautiful, but Cesenatico can set its foot next to it from a sheer beauty perspective and probably even better as next to the romantic scene it also offers great beaches for those who now and then want to enjoy a dip in the sea and a stretcher to read a good book. It's a place that simply makes you feel wholesome and alive. And if you know that going to Cesenatico means staying at Casa12 with Maurizio and Rossella, then you know that stress will be a far distant bad memory. Oh, did I already mention that they have the best gelato in the whole world there, wherever you buy it (but our favorite is La Latteria del Gelato, that's where I take my extra kilos to take back home).
Casa Dodici is a boutique B&B in a great location on the canal side in Cesenatico. The interior design is amazing and there is lovely art work throughout the hotel. The room we stayed in (J Birkin) was quite small but very comfortable and with great attention to detail. The bed was very comfortable so we had a good night's sleep. The owner was very nice and helpful. He served breakfast (just €5 per person) in a lovely dining room in the morning - the room had a balcony that looked out to the canal. My only slight disappointment was we did not get the room I booked on the internet (superior room with a balcony and view of the canal) and I don't think the hotel was busy. However the room we had was lovely anyway so it didn't seem worthy to complain. We stayed one night in Cesenatico and really enjoyed the atmosphere of this lovely port town. We ate at 12 ristorante (Dodici) which is owned by the same people as this hotel. I have reviewed the restaurant separately but that is also highly recommended. We enjoyed the authentic Italian feel to the town, the hotel and the restaurant. The night we stayed the Gran Premio Nuvolari was passing through Cesenatico (this is an Italian classic car race) - the canal side is usually closed off to traffic but the cars were allowed to pass through - fantastic to watch. We did not feel like we were in a tourist place (other than Italians) - which made it a great experience.
