Historical Traveler Reviews Ca' Maria Adele Venice
Right next to the Basilica Santa Maria della Salute. Very friendly, helpful staff and tasty breakfasts up to 11 a.m. Don't go for the suites. Room 332 has rooftop views of the Grand Canal and Giudecca if you don't mind stairs. Eat at Lineadombra round the corner, not Ristorante San Trovaso.
Loved Ca Maria
I had the pleasure of staying at the Ca Maria Adele for 3 nights at the beginning of May. It was such a great hotel. Location was perfect. 1 minute walk from Salute stop and just 1 stop from San Marco. It's much quieter that being in the throngs of St Marks but you can easily hop on the water bus and speed over if you want to. The hotel itself is really luxorious and stylish. The staff were incredible helpful and made us feel very special. You could tell they really care about their patrons and want to make them feel at home. The breakfasts were simple but tasty and enjoyed in a beautiful breakfast room. The rooms were sumptiously decorated with very comfy beds. I can not recommend it highly enough!
Ca Maria Adele was ideal
We just returned from a fantastic trip to Venice which was made even better thanks to a great hotel choice in the Ca Maria Adele.
The hotel is extremely well located in the Dorsoduro area of Venice which is removed from the tourist mayhem but close enough to be able to get to all the sights very easily (i.e. one stop from St. Mark's on the vaporetto and a 3 minute walk to the Peggy Guggenheim museum). The hotel has been done up to a very high standard and the owners have put a lot of attention into the details that make it special.
We had a deluxe room (not one of the themed rooms) on an upper floor of the hotel. Everything in the room felt new- especially the bathroom which was very modern and well lit. We had a very sweet view over a courtyard and could see the dome of the Santa Maria della Salute church. To access our room, we had a separate entrance (just next to the main entrance of the hotel) which made it feel like our own place. If we did need any advice, the hotel owners were very helpful and had some wonderful suggestions for restaurants including the nearby Linea D'ombra restaurant where we had lunch upon arrival- beautiful terrace overlooking the water and great food.
Ca Maria Adele also has a very cosy breakfast room but you can opt to have breakfast in your room which was delivered very quickly and was always very good.
I did extensive research before choosing this hotel (it was for a birthday celebration) and definitely feel it was well worth the price. It is a small, boutique hotel (only 14 rooms)- very subdued and elegant which is just what we were after. Highly recommended!

What a find! Forget the Gritti or Cipriani this is the place where the Celebrities in the know are stopping. It is only 2 mins across the water from St Marks but a million miles away from the Tourist tack. This place just oozes style and sophistication. I wanted somewhere special to take my wife for her 40th Birthday but all the big name places were either full or wanted the price of a small car for a suite! I came across the Ca Maria Adele in a desperate search of Trip adviser. I was a bit dubious as it only appeared to have a 3* rating but after reading the rave reviews decided to give it a go. I can say it is one of the best hotels you will find - not just in Venice but the whole of Europe and while not exactly cheap (we paid around Euro 270 a night) it is fantastic value for money in a city where a couple of cocktails can easily set you back 40 Euros. The place is ultra discreet and you could easily walk past it as it has no big hotel sign. The reception area and breakfast room are so stylishly decorated you could be forgiven you were in the pages of an interior design magazine. Our room was on the ground floor next to the reception area (room 106) it was ultra stylish with a huge bed mood lighting flat screen TV and wonderful original beams along with chic antiques etc. The windows opened right onto the canal overlooking the fantastic Church. The place is run impeccably by two great guys who went out of their way to point us in the right direction on this our first trip to Venice. The restaurants they recommended were top notch and they managed to get us reservations when the rest of the hoards were left standing outside. As for the celebrity clientele- I will not name names but two A list celebs were at the next table to us a breakfast and it just so happened that they were in the very issue of Hello magazine my wife had picked up at the airport! a few weeks previous the Director and a couple of the stars of the new film Casanova stayed there for the duration of the filming. It is not often I make the effort to write reviews but I was so impressed by this place I just had to spread the word, no doubt next time I want to stay it will be full! If you are looking for something a bit different It is the place to stay- tell the boys Mr Truelove sent you!
Excellent small stylish hotel
*) Excellent position, giving great access but is in a quiet area.
*) Service excellent. very helpful and friendly.
*) Rooms were good sized (nothing is that big in venice) and stylish
A few things to note - but do not stop me putting 5 stars:
*) The two beds we tried (we had 2 rooms) were both quite firm/hard !
*) I like the area, but it is quiet and there are only a few evening resteraunts close. However, in venice everything is close - just get the water bus across the way and you have lots.
Overall great - small, stylish and discrete.
Have just returned having stayed at this lovely hotel. The room we were allocated was smaller than we'd hoped but was very sumptuously furnished. There was a fab waterfall shower but other rooms have spa baths. Right opposite St Mark's Square but in an area which was quiet and away from crowds. Beautiful and elegant breakfast room. Very friendly staff and a very good choice.
Excellent hotel, excellent location
We stayed 4 nights here in this lovely hotel in October 2004. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the Salute waterbus stop, which is itself one stop from St Mark's Square. It's therefore very close to the centre of things. However, because the hotel is at the tip of the Dosurduro it is beautifully quiet. We are exceptionally light sleepers, and despite being right by the church we were never disturbed by any noise at all - guests, church bells or street noise.
I won't repeat the content of the other reviews, save to say that everything down to the last detail was excellent.
What can I say, the hotel is well laid out with a modern interior and spacious rooms with big king size beds and the staff are really good and helpful, even down to lending us an umbrella when it rained.
The hotel is located in the quiter Dorsoduro district next door to the church of S.Maria Della Salute, but it is not too far away from Piazza San Marco which is just a short waterbus ride across the Grand Canal.
All-in-all we had a very enjoyable stay in a great hotel and as the previous reviewer says you will love it there.
We stayed here for our wedding anniversary and it was really a special little find. Set away from the busy tourist streets yet near enough to walk to restaurants and sightseeing. The rooms are beautiful, very clean and spacious with lovely fluffy duvets and kingsize beds, and a shower to blow you away. The breakfast was very relaxing and nothing is too much to ask for. A gorgeous boutique hotel with modern facilities yet retaining the venitian charm..you will love it here!
Unforgettable venice in fashion and trendy small hotel!
perfect experience in venice! never been in a dream like that before! stunning atmosphere, perfect location (one minute from st mark square but in the quiet area on the canal where famous artists live)....friendly and at the same time luxury hotel ! themed rooms are the mistery to discover, dogi's room, black or white rom and all with murano glasses, venetian marbles and...surprise other rooms in contemporanery style!! venetian atmosphere with antiques fornitures mixed with fresh and new design furniture.

... but there was so much more. It was interesting to see how the local Venetian culture had given a different flavour (in dress and composition) to the painted scenes. And the sheer scale of these paintings full of colour, actions and detail made a very strong impression.
We took another path back to our hotel, stopping for some shopping and dinner and a short rest. After dark, we went out again to see Venice by lamplight and a moon that was almost full.
... looking very spiky ever since. The town was interesting and a change of scenery, but not really us, so on to Ravenna. It was a bit quiet being a Sunday afternoon but still interesting. I took the kids to see 3 churches and a museum with Ravenna's famous mosaic tile pictures. Very cool. Then wanting to get a bit closer to Venice we drove for another hour to a small Aire at Mesola. It was very busy with motorhomes returning home from the weekend and ...
... city of Venice and while we haven't done a lot yet, we still had an amazing time. We got into the city right at sunset and spent some time looking over one of the bridges over the Grand Canal (the main canal that runs through Venice). We then tried to find a restaurant on the canal and found this great (and fairly cheap!) little one right on the canal. We order our food and decide to get wine to drink...well because we thought we'd be a little classy haha. As ...
... I quite quickly became full, which I really should have seen coming, but I am a pig and forced myself to have the penne pesto too. I was just SO full that a third of the way into it, I was literally spearing one penne at a time. I had to keep eating. The pesto flavours would every now and then be inside the penne tube and it was exquisite.
I'm glad I just had my world shaken.

... and makes some purchases which allow us to devour in local strudel like pastries. I was off to happy land at that very moment. As we head across the Swiss-Italian border, we notice sniffer dogs and at least five guards search a van. Out steps a seedy looking man and they raid his van. Definitely different to the border security we see on TV! We then head to Verona, the setting of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. As we view the balcony to which ...
