Historical Traveler Reviews Ca' San Giorgio Venice
I have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Ca San Giorgio. We spent 1 night in the Suite with the panoramic view which was absolutely beautiful, sitting on the roof top balcony with great views of the teracotta roof tops of Venice. Then we moved into a double room, again a beautiful room with a great bathroom. It seems all the rooms are spotless and decorated to the same high standard. The building itself is quaint and a hidden gem in a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle of tourists, with some geat local restaurants on a nearby square. The staff are so friendly and helped out with all directions and recommendations of places to visit and eat, often off the tourist track and allowing us to mix with the "real Venetians". I will definitely be going back to this hotel, it was more than I expected, take a look at the web site and it shows exactly what it is like.
Didn't Want To Leave
I was able to reserve a room here for my 3 nights in Venice. This was by far my favorite place to stay. Chiara was so helpful and very nice. I was lucky enough to have a room with wonderful French doors that opened to a balcony. In the evenings, I sat out there with a book and glass of wine and enjoyed the sounds of Venice.
The breakfast was a wonderful way to start the day. I have nothing but good things to say about my stay there.
Thank you so much for making Venice all the more wonderful.
Great city, great hotel
Just arrived home from our 5 night stay in Ca San Giorgio, Venice. (Junior suite)
This is a really lovely boutique hotel which is genuinely exactly as it looks and sounds on their website - no tricks of the lens or anything like that, what you see is absolutely what you get.
It is a very convenient 5 minute trip on the vaporetto from the Piazzale Roma (where the buses and trains stop from the airport) and a very pleasant 20 - 25 minute walk to San Marco. Venice is very walkable - we walked the entire city about 4 times - and the hotel is not too far away from the sights but is far enough to be away from the noise and bustle.
Excellent, friendly service at the hotel, super breakfast, extremely clean and well turned out rooms, excellent value for money (especially compared to others in Venice).
Only minor downside is that the beds are a little firm if you're used to a soft one.
Go to 'Naranzaria' on the canalside next to the Rialto Bridge for lunch.
'La Zucca' for dinner - 2 minutes walk from hotel, great food but must book to get in!
Nice and cosy
we booked our honeymoon stay at Ca San Giorgio for 3nights and it was splendid! Chiara was a great help in recommending the nearby restaurants as well as places to visit.
Upon arrival at airport, we bought the 3day ticket and took the ACTV bus down to Piazza Roma, and from there transfer to the water bus, which is just 2 stops to the RIVA DE BIASIO station. upon reaching this station, it's a 3min walk to Ca San Giorgio... Having the ticket was just great, as we used it to travel round Venice, even to Murano!
Simply loved the bathroom tiles here, its' really nice! Breakfast could not have been better, with the most wondrous yougurt, cheese and ham! tks again Silvia & Chiara for such a wonderful stay.
The beauty and comfort of the rooms, delightfully decorated, the quality of the food and drinks served for breakfast, the warm hospitality of Silvia and Chiara, always ready to help with friendly manners and a smile, along with some remarkable details (free use of the Internet in your own room with wireless laptop - mini bar, kitchen corner, eco-toilet paper, TV and stereo)and last, but not least, decent price for quality and location (10 minute walk from railway station, 10 minutes by boat to Rialto) made it an excellent stay. Unforgettable!
Loved the Cà San Giorgio
Venice, Italy: Cą San Giorgio (Bed & Breakfast)
Date: 4 to 7 December 2005
Reviewer: Margaret Hastie, Rome, Italy (and Scotland)
I have just returned from a three-day trip to Venice with my mother and sister-in-law and would like to recommend the Cą San Giorgio, Bed & Breakfast hotel for a wonderful stay. It used to be a convent and has been lovingly restored into a small bed & breakfast hotel. The room we stayed in was fabulous, with beautiful decor and an ensuite bathroom completely decorated in mosaic tiles. The hotel is only ten minutes walk from the Rialto Bridge and is also very close to one of the Boat Stations. Silvia, the owner, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful and we were very glad of her advice on where to eat and how to travel around Venice. Another advantage was that the price was good, certainly considering the high standard of the hotel. We had a wonderful holiday in one of the most beautiful cities in the world and going back every evening to the comfort of our hotel room made our holiday even more special.
After 3 trips to Venice and 3 different hotels Cą San Giorgio is without any doubt our place. It is well located in Santa Croce in a quite street 50 meters from Grand Canal and close to the Vaparetto. Once used as a convent, the entire building has been beautifully restored about a year a go. We stayed 4 nights in the junior suite which is huge with very high sealings, it is elegantly decorated and it has great atmosphere. Everything is kept very clean. The breakfasts were the best we have had in Italy with freshly baked pastries, cereals, fresh fruit, yughurt, juices, great coffee, tea and hot chocolate and eggs cooked to your taste. The service is excellent; welcoming, most helpful, they give great recommendations and they are pleased to make reservations. We can very much recommend the hotel.
A fantastic little place
stayed with my girlfriend for one night. excellent location, although a little tricky to find at first as no hotel signs allowed in venice!. excellent, attentive and friendly staff and the rooms were amongst the best i've seen. i'm an airline pilot and stay in plenty of hotels. this one is lovely.
What a hidden treasure. We stayed here for 3 wonderful nights. The courtyard of the building has been refurbished splendidly with wooden beams, exposed brick and impressive features.The room was large, imaculate and stylish. The location is on a very quiet street, yet close to the Grand Canal. Breakfast is good. The staff are the most helpful and friendly people you could wish to meet. They helped to make the stay an absolute pleasure. We would recommend to anyone looking for charm with comfort and style.
A lovely place to stay
It has been a really good surprise this ancient and all renewed house.
Easy to reach by walking or by steamboat, all around there is a lot of quiet even if you're near all the major and interesting Venice attractions.
Our room (a double) was smart and very comfortable, and quite roomy.
We enjoy a lot our brief stay (only 1 night) and went away with some regrets.
The people were kindness and prompt to any needs we had.
A lovely place to stay; our suggestion is to try it: you won'tbe disappointed!

... of the colluding process. We were shown beautiful Venician glasses in 6 different coloures and decorated with layers of gold leaf. A set of 6 small tumbler glasses and decanter was offered for around 450 euro, or about $625. On display were elaborate chandeliers, jewelry, statues and ornaments. Stunning...with stunning prices.

We bought our tickets from the vending machine separately, and as they are reserved seating we all ended up in 4 different carriages. We ignored this and jumped into one carriage anyway, as it wasn't that busy. We did have to fend off a gypsy trying to grab our bags - she wanted to carry it for us and get paid. They are VERY ...

... The canals are no wider than the streets but the gondalas share the canals with water taxis. Yup flash little cruisers weaving in and out of these dozens of gondalas. After about 10 mins a guy starts singing accompanied by a guitarist. All the gondalas in our party gather around the singer as we enter one of the larger canals. To our right as we come out is the Rialto bridge. Each time you cross a bridge you are crossing to another island. After the gondala ride ...

(Venice is best known for its glass and lace production) I bought some gorgeous leather boots, which were partly in preparation for the colder, second half of our trip; and of course we sipped tea in a tiny Venetian cafe.
