Historical Traveler Reviews Ca' San Rocco Venice
My husband and I just got back from a long weekend at this family-run B & B. It's an amazing location; close enough to Piazzale Roma that you don't have to walk to far with luggage, close to the studenty area of Campo Santa Margarita to go out at night, but on a quiet side street so you get a perfect night's sleep. And you can still easily walk to all the well-worn touristy bits if so desired. Frari, Scuola San Rocco, San Pantalon with it's amazing ceiling & the fantastically tilty San Barnaba are all on the doorstep.
The room & shower room were immaculate, bed was comfy & huge, and the room was flooded with sunlight ( a treat in a city with such narrow streets). The central heating worked perfectly, as did the 2 heated towel rails. Staff were friendly, breakfast was tasty (with a very inviting-looking terrace that we'll have to try out next time when the weather is better), and even a little courtyard to sit in in good weather.
If I had to find one fault, the shower was a little small. But the bathroom is clean, gorgeous and brand-spanking new. You can see they've put a lot of thought (and money) into doing this place up. You quickly get over the size of the shower!
We would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful hotel in Venice
The Ca' San Rocco is a delightful haven in an amazing city. It is located in a residential neighborhood of Venice (San Polo), and it is surrounded by trees and homes of locals. At night the only sounds are the wind in the leaves of the mature trees and the occasional conversation between Venetians out on their balconies.
The room was well maintained, very clean and very pretty. It was so quiet, we thought we might be the only guests staying in the hotel, but later found out it was full. The only possible issue was that my 6ft. 2in. husband found the shower a bit small.
The staff are all very helpful and warm. They all spoke English, and all strove to meet our needs. The breakfast in the morning was perfectly adequate for our needs, though don't expect an American-style banquet.
We had a gorgeous, large terrace/balcony and we loved sitting there each night, after a long day of sight-seeing and enjoying the homey feel of the place.
I spent MANY long hours researching and looking for a hotel. I think my labor was not in vain. Save yourself the effort and book at Ca' San Rocco. We expect to return again and again.
We loved our stay at the Ca' San Rocco. It's a nice location in San Polo, with a beautiful garden terrace and the best breakfast we had in Italy. The room was spacious and clean, and the bed was comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.
Ca' San Rocco was the best hotel we stayed in over our two week tour through France, Italy and Austria! The room was large and spotless and the bathroom had ammenities you'd expect in a much more expensive hotel (towel warmer, deep soaking tub, tiled floors). The staff was so friendly and helped us find our way around Venice. We walked from the train station to the hotel with our 2 large rolling suitcases with no problem. The hotel is "off the beaten path" and therefore lets you escape the hustle and bustle of the Rialto and St. Mark's. My husband and I highly recommend this quaint and delightful hotel!
Lovely and Quaint
My husband and I stayed at Ca'San Rocco for 3 nights. The walk from the hotel to the train station was about 10 minutes and the directions offered on the hotel's website were accurate and clear.
The room at Ca'San Rocco was the nicest and largest room we experienced on our 2-week trip through France, Italy and Austria. The bed was large and comfy, and the bathroom was IMMACULATE! The tub was big enough for a bubble bath and the towel warmer was a nice touch we certainly didn't expect! We had a small balcony off our bedroom, and on Easter Sunday morning, we opened it so we could hear the bells ringing all over Venice. It was lovely!
This hotel isn't in a touristy area, so it was quiet at night and away from the hustle and bustle of St. Mark's Square, etc. I'd say the hotel is about a 10-15 minute walk from St. Mark's but we were really glad to "get away" every night to our cozy hotel. The walk to the Rialtto and St. Marks is fun and full of shops, vendors and gellato stands! We LOVED IT!
The breakfast at the hotel was tasty and the staff were very nice and accomodating to our needs. My husband says he's never going back to Venice. He says there were too many tourists...It WAS Easter weekend!! BUT he would (and I would too) recommend this delightful and charming hotel to anyone traveling to Venice.
A perfect place to stay in Venice
This small hotel with less than ten rooms or so was a perfect place to stay in Venice. The location was good, a bit away from the biggest flows of tourists but on the other hand nothing is far away in Venice. A friendly staff, a recently renovated, spotless and very spacey room was one of the very best I've stayed in anywhere. Seriously. Of course Venice is not the cheapest spot in the world but we really felt we got our money's worth at this hotel. I would recommend this for anyone visiting Venice.
Why we love Venice
The hotel was more than we could have hoped for and that says all. Our room was so welcoming and had to be in Venice and the staff could not have been more helpful. Just make sure you have an accurate map.

... got a couple of audio guides to keep the kids interested and headed inside. We were quite disappointed to find that there were no stairs to climb, instead a lift took us to the top.
Once at the top we were really impressed with the views, and I’m calling it, it was the best view from a tower that I have seen so far. We squeezed into a space at one of the viewing spots (like an open window) and started listening to the audio guide. At each 'window’ was ...
... of art all made by the hand blown glass method. I don't particularly like chandeliers but I almost wanted to buy one until we heard the price;€2800.
The idea of the free trip and tour was that they hoped you would buy some of the pieces. The guilt takes over making you feel like you should really buy something as they were so kind to take you there all free of charge. The pieces we liked were so over and beyond our budget that we didn't ...
... chocolate ice cream to finish. All washed down with a surprisingly good red wine. After lunch we got back on the tour and visited the Doge's Palace which turned out to be right beside our hotel. After a really interesting tour we walked back to the hotel, picked up our keys, took pictures of our lovely room and hit the sheets for a SCAN. We were buggered. It took us a while to find our room which was 291. You might have expected to find it on the 2nd floor, but it was in ...
... her husband left her. She is buried in a gorgeous garden with 12 of her dogs. I was intrigued. We both fell in love with a painting by her ex husband Ernst (pic at bottom) because it was dark and personal. Mike loved the Pollock exhibit with the lines and dripping style. Picasso and Warhol were represented and adored but the whole Guggenheim collection was truly inspiring. It reminded us how important it is to support artist so they can continue telling the stories of our society.
... need to maintain its colour. We had lunch there then walked around the town, getting lost in the side streets. Back in Venice Amy, Duane, Alex, and I did some shopping and lost track of time. We had a quick dinner in a little trattoria then rushed back to St Mark's Square to catch the vaporetto back to the ship. We made it back in time for the safety drill at 8pm (there were ...
