This hotel is tired! Some of the staff were lovely, some grumpy! The younger staff were helpful, the older less friendly. We knew there was no lift, so that's ok. But for a person who doesn't like stairs, specify a lower down room. The room we had wasn't the most basic. Plus points were a jacuzzi bath. Negative points were a tired decor (it really needs a deep dust & clean & repaint) and badly positioned power points. The breakfast was just OK. Overall we wouldn't be back, even if the location is good, the whole place needs a good makeover.
We stayed here for three nights in a deluxe double room. The staff at reception were friendly and assisted us with our queries. The hotel has no elevator so you have to lug heavy bags up to your room. Our room was a long walk from the lobby, seemed like a 3 minute walk, and up two flights of very steep steps to the actual room which seemed to be located in the attic and there was a terrible smell just outside the room where they seem to keep the hotel laundry. The room was spacious but dark, it could do with a bit more lighting and the finishes are worn out even the bathroom had missing components on the shower. I booked this hotel for the authentic decor but the decor in the room seemed faded and tacky so that was disappointing. There was a kettle and complimentary tea/coffee which was good. Breakfast was not terrible, worst coffee i have ever tasted, rather take a walk to cafe and have a proper breakfast. Location was ok but not great, i think that other hotels in the area offered better location, it was however a 5 minute walk from St. Angelo water station which is convenient for catching the water bus to the airport or just going from one side of the island to the next.
We stayed ay Albergo Ca Alvise in May 2017, nice large rooms and bathrooms compare to other hotels in the area. Decorated nice, the only bad thing is no elevator but I did not mind going up and down 3 flights of stairs 7 times a day but if you have issues with that probably pick another hotel. But staff was pleasant, Sometimes when it is low tide water taxi can't get to your hotel so you need to get dropped off at the main canal. Breakfast was good and plenty. That was a added bonus.
The hotel receptionist was pleasant and helpful with any questions we had, the room was cleaned everyday but not fully there was always some rubbish left. The bathroom was nice and the bath was reasonable size for a good relax along with the water jets which were snacking after a day of walking Venice! The location wasn't far from the main square. Breakfast was awful I ended up eating out every morning!
Just got back from staying in Venice and at the Albargo Ca'Alvise hotel and I have to say that this hotel is a little gem in the middle of a very busy city. The hotel, rooms, bathrooms were clean, the hotel staff helpful and friendly and the location is just brilliant. Lots of choice for breakfast. I would definitely recommend this hotel and am hoping to go back and stay there again soon. Water taxi can stop about 1minute away and on our return journey to the airport, the receptionist arranged our water taxi and the very friendly service chap took our luggage to the water taxi stop for us with us leisurely walking behind. Made us feel very special.
This hotel was our first stop in Italy. We enjoyed our room which included a small sitting area and a nice bathroom. The breakfast was the best of any place we stayed on this trip. My one disappointment was that there was noise from the hallways and the floor above that was bothersome at times. But we did have a comfortable stay and we were able to find our way to all the sites in Venice from this location. The staff was helpful with tour information, transportation advice, and directions.
The location of the hotel is very close to San Marco. So pretty much very close to major attractions. Beware if you have heavy luggage then it is a task to reach the hotel from the nearest boat station. A good 10 mts walk from San Angelo but the trouble is the numerous small bridges wherein you will have to lift and cannot stroll your luggage. The rooms were small but ok. Breakfast was just fine. The restaurant is open only for breakfast. But you have several eateries nearby. Wifi very slow. All in all a decent hotel for couple of days of stay in Venice.
Booked this Hotel after checking it's rating on Trip Adviser (Rated 4 out of 5), but didn't find it anywhere near a four star. Probably something to do with size of properties in Venice. First of all our room was on 3rd floor ( not really sure it was 3rd or 2nd but for too many stairs)and there was no lift. After so much of walk and stairs one expects some comfort once reached their hotel, but here on top of all that walk we had to go up all those stairs, really disappointing. Bed was double( two single ones joint together) small in size. Not really comfortable. Room was decorated traditional style. Bathroom was really good. Bathroom as good as a four star and room as good as 3 star. Don't complement each other. Staff very good,friendly and helpful. No complains at all. Over all an average to good stay.
Hotel was lovely breakfast scrumptious not far from grand canal and st marks square, staff very nice and helpful always willing to help nice shopping and places to eat nearby, vaporetto wonderful way to travel go to murano lovely place to see.
Just returned from 3 days in Venice, staying at Ca'Alvise hotel. Sitting off one of the minor canals, the hotel is very central in the San Marco area - St Marks, Rialto being a 5-8 minute walk. If you are coming from the airport via the Waterbus (Allilaguna) make sure to get the ORANGE line and get off at either Rialto or St Augusta. This takes under an hour where as the BLUE line goes via Morano, Lido and a couple of other places and takes about 1 hour 50 minutes. Both cost 15 euros per person. A private water taxi costs around 130 euros for 3 people. The hotel itself is great. It's not large or modern, but all the better for that. We stayed in a 4 bed room -one very large double and 2 full singles (room 204). Yes the TV is a small flat screen but has Sky. The chandelier is amazing! The bathroom is large and has a Jacuzzi bath which is great after a days walking. Safe and mini bar in room. Pillows were a bit hard for me, but that's just a preference. Only criticism is AC unit is over the door and too far away from the main bedroom. Breakfast was good - scrambled eggs and continental type bacon - all usually fruits, croissants etc as well. Can't fault it. They have a room for you to leave your luggage in when you arrive and on day of departure which is invaluable. Staff fantastic - friendly, great sense of humours. As a place to use as a base in Venice its everything you would need. Would definitely stay again
