        Historical Traveler Reviews Casanova ai Tolentini Venice

        A little slice of paradise in Venice


        Fantastic little B&B in a wonderful position. It's easy to get lost in Venice however it is always easy to find this place as you can just follow the signs to the bus station. I arranged for my Mum to stay here (she was by herself) and Alberto met her at the train station late at night and carried her backpack all the way to the B&B, with cute little white dog in tow. My husband and I arrived a few days later, without a reservation, and Alberto was amazingly accommodating. The rooms here are spacious, super clean, great value and could not be better. I don't think the photos on their website do the place justice because it was 10 times better in the flesh. The B&B does not have a sign on the front of the building so I would recommend you take your phone to make contact with Alberto when you arrive - because of this Casanova ai Tolentini feels more like a home away from home than a B&B - your own little slice of Venice.

        Absolutely Wonderful!!!


        My wife, two adult children, 21 and 19 years of age, and I recently stayed at the Casanova ai Tolentini B and B in Venice. Absolutely wonderful!. We arrived at the Venice train station, Santa Maria Novella, walked out the front of the station to see the Grand Canal. Awesome. I called Alberto from the Train Station and he gave me great directions, but before we could get to the B & B he met us about half-way there. The Casanova is on the interesection of two small canals in a friendly, quite neighborhood veyr near the Architecture school.

        The B and B is very modern with beautiful decor and very modern bathrooms. We had two rooms, one with twin beds and one with a king size bed. Both had their own bathrooms. The place was absolutely immaculate. Alberto was a wealth of knowledge as a result of being in the hospitality industry in Venice before starting his own B & B. He and his wife Monice live right in Venice. A definite plus. The room had an Ethernet connection at no charge.....bring your own LAN cable or Alberto will provide one...

        Dinner suggestions made by Alberto weregreat. One was just up the canal Il Cravati. Great meal, hand written menu and truly a good value. The other Da Romana on the Island of Burano was one of the best meals we had in Venice.

        I unconditionally recommend Casanovi ai Tolentini. Superior accomodations and GREAT price. Do It!

        Fantastic Location


        My Husband and I have just arrived back from our trip in Venice we stayed at the B & B Casanova ai Tolentini, The location was fantastic just 100 metres from Piazzo Roma which is the main square for the buses to airport etc, the host Alberto & Monica where fantastic, they made us feel very welcome and it was like home from home, the breakfast room was bright and airy looking over the canal with lovely red geraniums. Tthe delux room that we stayed in was beautiful, and it made us want to spend time there when you needed a rest. The B& B is only small with 5 bedrooms, each room is decorated beautiful and is located central for everything around you. Absolutely superb.

        Good place to stay in Venice


        We were at B&B Casanova ai Tolentini the three of us last May in the same room. We had a double bed and a sofa and the room was big enough for 3. Very well located near the train station. Alberto offered us to leave our luggages in the B&B the day of our arrival and our departure which was very nice to allowed us visit Venice without our bags. Breakfast was very good : one of the best we've had in Italy. Room and bathroom were very clean. Nice place to stay and near everything to visit as Venice is not that big. I recommand this place

        Great B and B, Great hosts


        My wife, two children, and I recently stayed at the Casanova ai Tolentini B and B in Venice. A true pleasure. We drove to Venice and parked in one of the big parking towers at the end of the causeway - near the train station. From there it was just a short walk to the Casanova which was really convenient - about two blocks. The Casanova is on the interesection of two small canals in a friendly, quite neighborhood. Alberto and Monica quickly ushered us in (bring the phone contact - they're just around the conrner if not onsite). With one of the main Vaporetto staitons around the corner (Roma) you can zip anywhere quickly.

        The B and B is very modern - nice fresh room with a refrigerator. The whole place was recently redone and it has charm, character and modern amenities. Breakfast was delicious and Alberto was very accomodating with requests for refills and offered lots of great advice - both general and specfic. The room had an Ethernet connection (no charge) which was exteremly handy for offloading and uploading pictures from our cameras and firing off a few emails.

        One suggestion Alberto made was to eat up the street at Il Cravati. Great meal - great value.

        In a town that's known for high prices and questionable value - this place is a gem. We all felt the place was great, the price represented a great deal, and the folks were as kind as could be. Go fot it.

        First Class Accommodation at Casanova ai Tolentini


        Our seven nights at this excellent Bed & Breakfast were much appreciated and the cost most reasonable. Its position could not have been improved, i.e. right in the centre of a quiet and original part of the city but close enough to the Grand Canal for travelling to the rest of Venice. This area around the Scalzi Bridge offers much interest and is close enough to the Piazza Roma for tourists to venture further afield if required.

        The cleanliness of the accommodation was outstanding and the breakfasts were first class.

        Our hosts, Alberto and Monica, were friendly, most obliging and very helpful with advice in relation to places of interest and our shopping requirements.

        Couldn't be better


        We can only echo the experience of other reviews on this web site the stay at B and B Casanova ai Tolentini was perfect for us travelling as ayoung family. Arriving at Piazzale Roma by bus the three of us (two adults one child of 2.5 years) only had a short distance to walk (2 mins) to the canalside where the b and b is located. Really convenient but you instantly felt that you were in the Venice. We were met by the ever helpful and happy Alberto and were extremely pleased to see the high standard of the room with ensuite bathroom/shower. It was not only clean but decorated to a good modern standard. As we were marking our anniversary we also appreciated the chocolate hearts left for us after our room was cleaned each day.

        In terms of travelling around the city it was ideally located for the vaporetto and walking could get you to many of the tourist attractions in fairly quick time. Some great places to eat and drink within a few minutes of the b and b and the locality is a nice environment.

        Now looking forward to our next trip and booking this great value for money accommodation again.

        Au coeur de Venise


        Alors là, c'est rare et précieux ! Un accueil chaleureux, une situation au coeur de la ville, des chambres impeccables, des petits déjeuners très sympathiques qui donnent la pêche pour la journée, tout ça pour un prix raisonnable et la bonne humeur en prime. Grazie mille !

        Perfect place, perfectly placed


        My wife and I stayed at the Casanova dei Tolenti in May 2006 whilst in Venice for 4 days. The hotel has an excellent location 20 minutes walk away from the throng of San Marco on the San Polo/Santa Croce Sestriere border. It is situated in a quiet, pretty part of Venice on the Gafaro Canal and is the perfect base for anyone who wishes to just 'walk' and get lost in Venice. There are plenty of great fish restaurants (Da Fiore, Antiche Carampane) nearby, the closest ice cream seller is less than 1 minute away on the other side of the canal, and the nearest Osteria is literally 50 yards down the canal. You could not pick a better spot. to stay in Venice.

        Alberto, our host, was extremely welcoming and helpful. He is always on hand in the mornings to talk about your previous adventures in Venice and give you advice on what to do next, and is contactable during the daysif you need him. We were welcomed to our clean and spacious apartment style room right on time, and found a wonderful bottle of Prosecco waiting for us (which we drank sitting by the canal later that night). Bathrooms are spotless and that age old problem of no hot water in Venice simply wasn't an issue - piping hot showers available every day at any time of the day. Alberto served a simple but enjoyable Italian breakfast in the trendy dining room every morning - great coffee.

        I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Venice. It's location, high standard of accommodation, freindly host and value for money (we paid 120Euros per night) are big selling points in our opinion.

        A Rare Jewel.


        The Casanova ai Tolentini was a wonderful B&B for our stay in Venice. We were there for approximately 3 nights in the beginning of April. It is located within walking distance of the train station. The rooms were immaculate and beautifully decorated. The B&B owners, Alberto and his wife Monica are gracious hosts, and eager to please.

        Alberto spoke perfect English and provided my family and I with ample information on Venice sights and activities. Alberto told us that he has worked very hard over the last couple of years to bring his B&B on line, and luckily for us it was done in time for our trip. The rooms we stayed in were on the second floor, so we had to carry our suitcases up one flight of stairs, no big deal.

        When we arrived in our rooms, Alberto had a welcome beverage in our room. It was beautifully presented and a wonderful welcome to Venice. Alberto made himself available to his guests anytime. Our rooms were spacious and very clean. We had a little rain on our trip, which I can tell you did not damper our mood one bit. Alberto provided enough umbrellas for all of his guests, although we brought ours from home anyway.

        This B&B is also located very closely to a vaporetto stop, which is the water ferry for people. My wife and I loved Venice so much that we look forward to another trip and another stay at Casanova ai Tolentini. We walked everywhere, thats how centrally located this B&B is.

        Alberto, thank you again and look forward to another stay in your B&B.

        ... quite plump I must add). It was hilarious watching people, old and young, try to get the pigeons to land on them. Some even put food on their hats and the pigeons flew up to their heads! Luckily (for me or the pigeons!?) I had a granola bar in our bag so we took it out to see what this was all about. Sure enough, before I had the wrapper open, they were already swarming around our feet. We had so much fun getting them to land on us and ...

        ... stairs in the ship. I am on the 8th floor, the buffet is on the 11th floor, and the bars are on the 6th. So pretty easy to do 2-3 flights of stairs whenever I go somewhere. I was thinking of having a spa before bed, but it is quite cool outside, and it might not be the best idea with my cold - the viralex has worked, but it is still there in the background, and I have quite a sore throat. Think I will sleep well tonight in this huge bed.

        ... most of the important cites and explained a lot of the city's history. If you have a chance to do free walking tours I strongly recommend them as a great way to get a good feel for the city and it's layout. (It's free so normally you tip at the end of the tour, don't walk away without showing your gratitude!) Afterwards we went to the Doge's palace that was basically filled with a bunch of counsel rooms for the prosecution of criminals ...

Each course had two different, small glasses of wine for us to taste and desert was an apple pastry we shared with lemoncello liquor. Stuffed and happy we attempted to find our way back to the little canal bridge that led to our hotel and laughed as we got lost over and over in the quaint Venetian town. ...
