Bidding farewell to Roma was much harder than I thought it would be. In fact, I lingered so long on the morning of our departure, that we had to make a mad dash through Stazione Termini just to catch our anxious Eurostar Train - which began to pull out of the station the very moment that I hoisted our last bag off of the platform. Never let 'em see …

Next on our 'urgent' list is a good strong Italian coffee, and we find just the place to take our espresso and macchiato Italian-style: standing up at the counter and knocking it back quickly. The owner seems surprised when I ask the price: presumably what we paid is a Venetian or perhaps national standard: an astounding one Euro each for an excellently-brewed espresso. Along ...

It also seems most of the handbag shops may be owned by the one "chain" or “owner” – the shop assistants are Asian and the bags are REALLY cheap – even though there’s a label on them advising, “Made in Italy” and knock-off products here are illegal – just watch the African (?) Negros keeping an eye out for the Police as they are trying to sell the copies in the streets.

Historical Traveler Reviews Ca' Pisani Hotel Venice
For those that do not have to stay next to St. Mark's Square, Ca Pisani is perfect. A small quiet hotel close to San Marco that is modern, clean, and very comfortable. Similar to the Morgans Hotel in NY. The staff was very helpful and their resturant suggestions were wonderful. If you stay you must eat at Ai Gondolieri, only about a 3 min. walk. Our room was so quiet that sleeping in was not a problem. My wife is use to 5 star and she adored our stay. Good luck!
Location is excellent - away from the madness of San Marco but 2 mins walk from the Accademia Bridge and Vap stop. Design is what this hotel is all about; and Venetian it is not (a big plus in our view). Our room (standard) was not huge (but celings are very high) with a view of the back wall of the Accademia Gallery. It was however very comfortable and bathroom was stunning, but -biggest negative - no bath (just an excellent shower). As we had obtained a very good discounted rate by booking directly with the hotel just 2 weeks before our stay, we could not complain - we got what we paid for which, for Venice, was incredibly good value. Breakfast was above average for Italy and staff all friendly and helpful. We ate in the restauarant the night we arrived and in our opinion it was overrated and expensive - or maybe we just ordered badly. As an alternative walk 5 mins to the end of the avenue (away from the Bridge) and go right round the corner onto the Zaterre where there are a handful of decent-looking places populated by locals. Overall highly recommended.
Great sized rooms for Venice!
We spent 2 nights at the Ca Pisani. We had 3 rooms. Two of the rooms seemed to be set up as handicap accessible. A bit of a mess to take a shower since the water is not exactly contained within the shower base-- we learned to make a barrier wall with towels to prevent the water from travelling throughout the bathroom. Rooms were larger than most hotels in Venice. We happen to like the Dorsoduro area and usually stay in this residential area. Our 3rd room was perfect!! Had a regular glass enclosed shower. Staff were generally helpful and friendly. We would definately stay here again.
A Great Stay
Stayed at the Ca'Pisani in early September and found that it more than lived up to the reviews . Offered a reasonable price on one of the first floor suites which gave us a separate area for our 9 year old - the room was comfortable and stylish. Great location that's close to main tourist drags but peaceful enough to recharge . Great dinner in the courtyard at the Agli Alboretti opposite . Breakfast was fine and the staff were very professional and friendly . Would return .
We stayed at Ca Pisani Sept. 12-19th 2003 for part of our honeymoon and it was excellent! We had a room in the front of the hotel that had a view of the Grand Canal. The sheets and towels were clean and always well stocked. The service was excellent! The service speaks almost any language. With the "computerized" lock system the hotel has, the service staff knows when you are in your room, and therefore do not bother you until you leave the room. We especially enjoyed the mechanical blinds that blocked out all the light (believe me...it was totally dark in our room at 2pm) and almost all the noise. The bathrooms were very up to date; something most other establishments did not have. It is modern, and if you want an Italian flavor to your hotel room, then this is not the hotel for you. However, we enjoyed the "modern" hotel after full days in the typical Ventian and Italian culture. This hotel is in the less noisy, "more romantic" area of Venice, and was a great spot for us honeymooner's. Everyday breakfast was included and it was very plentiful! We would definently stay here again!
Stylish, friendly, quiet, delicious!
Having visited Venice dozens of times (Cipriani, Europa and other hotels), I was delighted to find Ca'Pisani. Beautifully designed in a 16th century house, I found the staff of the hotel to be helpful and friendly. Its little restaurant La Rivista served a delicious breakfast every morning, and offers excellent fusion lunch and dinner. The hotel is just behind the Accademia, and only a five minute walk to Nico's, the best Gelateria in Venice, frequented by the locals on the Zattere.
If you are looking for a hotel with a good location (on the Dorsoduro) chic design, and a lovely refuge from the zoo-like atmosphere of San Marco, give this hotel a try!
I stayed at the Ca Pisani from 8/3 to 11/3 (Room 27). To say the room was a 'superior' I thought it was rather small and with hindsight would have gone for a 'standard'. The room was full of gadgets, was very fashionably decorated and was comfortable. I knew we wouldn't have a canal view and thought this wouldn't matter but once I got there I realised that having a canal view would've been great. If being trendy is the most important thing for you then you'll love the Ca' Pisani but if you're after something which is more traditionally Venetian then look elsewhere.
Ca'Pisani Hotel is located right behind the Accademia, in the Dorsoduro district. Unlike the San Marco area, one can explore the quieter neighborhoods and relish some solitude in one of the biggest tourist attractions in the world. Overall, I would say that this is a beautiful hotel, albeit slightly functionally challenged.
The ultra-modern Ca'Pisani may not be everybody's fantasy of a Venetian pile, but after a hard day of museum and church going, and marching up and down the many bridges of Venice, it is divine to retreat to a perfectly quiet, comfortable room and enjoy a jacuzzi. The facilities could not be more modern and exquisitely designed. In fact, the high-tech challenged might be a bit flummoxed by all the knobs, dials and a phone so sleek it's hard to figure out how to hang it up. But the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. They looked genuinely happy to have us there and went out of their way to answer all our questions about Venice and even nearby Padua. (Their restaurant recommendations were great.) The breakfast is fine. The Dorsoduro location is superb. I'd stay there again in a minute.
Ca'Pisani is a new Hotel in central Venice built in the shell of a 16th century house. Billed as a "design" hotel but we not talking minimalism here. They have gone for a 30s feel with a modern twist. The effect is calm and luxurious. Overall Id say that this is an excellent hotel, built to a high standard with staff as good as they come.
