Locanda Ca Zose
Travel Blogs from Venice
Joined once again (after some very long flights) by the lovely Caroline we set out to explore the romantic city of Venice. From everything that is said, published, filmed, and reported about this city (including the 'Venice' level in Tomb Raider II which I was constantly reminded of), I had a good idea what to expect... but all that still didn't …
Yesterday we arrived in Venice, successfully negotiating the Italian railway system once again - it really is very efficient and foolproof. My first impressions of Venice were so different to how I had imagined it, so much better - I think cities in Italy have just got progressively better as we have moved north. Possibly more expensive too!
Although we had planned a day visiting museums and churches in Venice today, we ended up doing ...
... all the pieces were beautifully made. After our visits to Murano we were sailed back to the is add of Venice where we had three horses to explore and buy souvenirs. I purchased a Venezia sailor hat which is awesome. Charles and I found a small restaurant to have a small early lunch as we had group plans for a late lunch/early dinner in the afternoon. At this restaurant we shared a margarita pizza and both had the traditional Venetian drink, Spritz Aperol. The pizza was ...
... br> of Venice. We caught the ferry out to the first island which is the
glassblowing island. When we got there we walked to one of the many
glassblowing factories. We spent about 15 minutes watching some people
making some coloured class cups. We then walked around some of the shops
that sold mostly glass decorations and objects. We bought some
sandwiches and caught a boat to the second island. ...
... yesterday, we headed to some additional sights that piqued our interest and were outside of the mayhem in the Rialto Bridge-St. Mark's Square stretch. Our first stop was the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, which features modern art from the first half of the 20th century. I was quite excited to see this collection, given the amount of art we had seen from other time periods; this would be a nice contrast. The collection includes works by Picasso, Dali, and Pollock; ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Locanda Ca Zose Venice
We spent 4 nights in this smart, clean and well-located hotel and we will be back there for our next trip in VENICE.
Situated in the best "sistiere" (according to me) of Venice, you can reach easely all the other parts of the town loading the vaporetto at " la salute" (2mn by feet);it is also close to Accademia and P.Guggenheim museum.
And don't forget they are good places for eating "ai cugnai", "taverna san trovaso", "aigondolieri" and all the restaurants in Zattere (docks on the of Dorsoduro)
My husband and I stayed at Locanda Ca Zose for a long weekend. We arrived very late at night - on the Ryan Air flight from Treviso - and we had a very hard time finding the hotel. If you stay here - make sure you take a good map, and know where you are going - especially if you will arrive at night. The hotel was very cute and clean. The two women who run the hotel were wonderful - very nice and helpful.
Great,centrally located hotel
We stayed here in April 2005 having read the Tripadviser recommendations. The hotel was extremely clean, our room was quiet and spacious, the bed was comfortable and the hotel is a five minute boat ride from St Marks Square. I shall be recommending it highly to anyone visiting Venice in the future.
Excellent value for Money!!!
Good things DO come in small packages and Locanda Ca Zose is proof. The hotel, run by two sisters, is a venetian haven. We booked an economy room and were very surprised by the acommodations. The room could sleep three and the bathroom was large and spotlessly clean. In fact the entire hotel sparkles and shines! We had plenty of fresh towels and the owners fuss over their guest like mother hens to chicks. Breakfast is included in the room rate and is a lovely spread! Ask Valentina to make you her excellent cappuchinno!!! The hotel is very convient to everything. You really won"t be disappointed with your stay here
All the Comforts of Home
We had a very pleasant stay at Locanda Ca Zose. The staff was exceptionally friendly and accommodating. They offered all the extra conveniences we needed for our 4-month old baby and made our stay as comfortable as being at home.
The location is ideal, in a nice area of Venice and very quiet. It was easy to find and a great starting/ending point for our wanderings through Venice.
We are looking forward to returning to Venice and to staying at Ca Zose again. We recommend this hotel to anyone interested in a great stay in Venice!
A special thanks to Valentina for everything!
Locanda Ca Zose was a great place for our family. We are a family of four, two adults, two children, 10 and 12. We stayed at Ca Zose in August, 2004. Ca Zose gave us a room with one queen bed and set up two small beds for our children. Our room was tight but not a problem at all. It is not easy to find a quad room in Europe for a reasonable price, but Ca Zose definitely provided that. The breakfast was pretty good and the coffee was great. The hotel is very small but very charming and clean and the location is great. They have air conditioning and the room was very comfortable. Far enough from the crowds, but close enough to go anywhere you want. There was something magical about throwing open the window shutters in the morning and looking out at one of the beautiful little bridges that go over the smaller canals. The ladies that own the hotel are very nice, and very helpful. We would stay here again in a second. I would have rated it excellent, except we had just stayed at Hotel Alimandi in Rome before this and as good as Locanda Ca Zose is Alimandi was over and above our expectations and is a tough act to follow, so if your off to Rome don't forget to check out Hotel Alimandi.
Peaceful Retreat in a Central Location
Centrally Located from 2 Minutes from Salute Vaporetto Station (1 Stop to San Marco) and 10 Minutes from Accademia. Very Close to The Peggy Guggenheim Collection. The staff a very friendly and breakfast is served until 10:30am. Rooms are comfortable, good quality and clean. The main plus for this hotel is that it is central, but very very peaceful, great for getting away from the crowds.

If you are looking to get away from the hordes staying by San Marco Piazza then consider Locanda Ca Zose. It's a charming small hotel run by a pair of sisters in the Dorsoduro quarter and a stone's throw from the Basilica de Santa Maria Novella.
