Travel Blogs from Venice
Today we took a high speed train from Rome to Venice. The countryside was so beautiful I felt like I was in a picture. I kept telling mom the train could just drop me off anywhere out there. The train was very nice, clean, brand new, and easier then we expected. The best part is they are on time! We pulled out of the station exactly at 9:25 am when we were supposed to. I am a little disappointed about Venice. True, it is ...
... the small canals of Venice and saw many homes and 'back streets' that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Our guide had organised an accordian player and singer to accompany us on one of the gondolas, so the atmosphere was just lovely. What a thrill to ride a gondola through Venice!
Afterwards, we boarded our water taxi again, and headed for the island of Burano, where they
make beautiful lace. We had a late lunch of risotto, spaghetti ...
... matching columns. Also St. Mark's body and other relics were stolen back from the Muslims using pork since they cannot touch it. The four bronze horses were also stolen and they the oldest that survive of that style.
We chilled at the hostel with head ups. I especially enjoyed the train ride and restaurant conversation where we talked about illegal activites, food, and housing problems. Oh also, no need to pay for transportation in Venice, nobody ...
Frari Church was our next destination. It houses works of 3 great Renaissance masters: Donatello, Giovanni Bellini, and Titian. Usually art of this caliber is seen only in museums but somehow this church has retained its hold on these great masters' works.
As if Venice doesn't have enough fairy tale flavor, we assigned ourselves a scavenger hunt ... the hunt for THE Pinocchio. When ...
... can't take pictures. Again by the time we came out of the church the flooding had reached higher levels so we sought refuge in a little coffee shop. Although it was safe from the rain and rising water levels there were pigeons inside which made me uneasy as these flying creatures creep me out. The shop owner assured us that the water would not reach inside the shop however as we decided it was time to move on the water was creeping into the shop. Venice must really be sinking. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ca' dei Dogi Venice
Reizendes kleines Hotel
Wir haben im Dezember drei Nächte im Ca Dei Dogi verbracht. Reizend, wir wurden vom Personal so herzlich willkommen geheißen, herrliches, modernes Zimmer, üppiges Frühstück...und sogar eine Flasche Prosecco gratis! Es ist 2 Minuten entfernt vom Markusplatz. Und hat ein großartiges Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis, im Gegensatz zu allem anderen in Venedig. Kann es gar nicht genug empfehlen.
The Best Deal in Town
This is a superb little gem of a hotel in Venice. As most have mentioned on this site you can't top the location, just a few paces from St. Marks Square. It is a refreshingly modern botique hotel with fresh linens, towels, new windows and clean lines. The bathrooms are also brand new and look like a page from a magazine. (I have included pics, though the one of the bedroom never came out).
Also, Stephano and Suzanna were helpful and wonderful. They helped us order train tickets for our next city, dinner reservation, and anything else we wanted to do. The breakfast was good, basically coffee, tea, juice, fruit, yogurt, warm bread, and salami. If I had to nitpick, one drawback I found throughout Italy in Sept is the mosquitos, so my advice is turn on the AC and leave the windows closed. Also, though there was a TV in the room it barely picked up any stations. Other hotels we stayed at in Italy had satellite hookup so at least you could watch international CNN.
Overall, I would highly recommend Ca Dei Dogi. In a city with so many run down rooms, this is a gem for the price range!
Wonderful Small Hotel In Venice
My husband and I and my daughter and son-in-law recently stayed at this small hotel in Venice. The location, just around the corner in a tiny alley from Piazza San Marco is superb. The rooms were tiny but beautifully done with wonderful modern bathrooms and most rooms have a tiny terrace and there is a small terrace on the top floor where I watched the windows and drapes being closed in the Dogi's Palace one evening.
Stefano, the owner, not only recommended his favorite restaurants and made reservations, but he gave us little lists of special dishes to order. The continental breakfast was lovely and generous. This hotel will not be good for anyone who has trouble climbing stairs since every room is up another flight, nor would it be a happy choice for persons who must have spacious rooms. But we found it to be first rate in every way and the owner and staff go out of their way to make your visit memorable.

Wonderful little hotel
My family and I enjoyed this very modern boutique hotel only 2 blocks from St. Mark's Square. The rooftop terrace was a great place to share a pizza and wine while watching the sun go down in the evenings. The rooms are small, but that is typical of all of Italy. We would definitely stay at Ca Dei Dogi again.
Lovely hotel, friendly owners, great location
We stayed here for 3 nights in June 2006. The hotel is beautifully done. Our room was small but clean and smart. We had a private balcony on which we had an hour or so after daytime tourist trips prior to night time eating. Breakfast was continental style but ample as omelette was an option too. The staff were all very friendly. On top of all this was the fact that the location is superb - just 5 minutes from St Mark's sqaure yet so quiet as it is up a side street rarely seen by the hordes. Should I retun to Venice I will try to use this hotel again.
Beautifully decorated, with excellent attention to detail
Stayed at this beautiful little hotel in May for 3 nights. Tucked away at the back of the Dogi Palace in a brilliant location, extremely handy for all the attractions and minutes away from the water taxis. Small hotel but beautifully decorated with lovely attention to detail, very clean. Room we had was tiny, (but it is Venice) could step out of bed and straight into the bathroom, ......which was lovely. Room came with a delightful private balcony.
Owner really helpful, even printing off the football results for us. Would highly recommend this immaculate hotel
Lovely little hotel
Location is great, the rooms are lovely, clean and bright. I would definitely recommend it.
Lovely little hotel
I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and would definitely recommend it. The location is superb - just a few mins from St Mark's Square, so it is handy to pop back for a little rest if you're feet are getting tired! The rooms were very well decorated - lots of attention to detail and fitted out to a high standard. Each one is also decorated individually. However, the room and the bathroom was a little bit small and for the money I was probably expecting a slightly bigger room. The other down side was the breakfast, which wasn't brilliant, but probably fairly standard (though the coffee is nice!). Nonetheless, this is a great little boutique hotel and would happily stay here again!
Loved Ca' Dei Dogi
We loved our stay at Ca' dei Dogi. Location is great (one block from St. Mark's) and Stefano gave us amazing restaurant recommendations. The hotel rooms and bathrooms are brand new and the service is outstanding. This is a small boutique hotel with only six rooms.
Perfect location, charming hotel
Stayed at Ca' dei Dogi two weeks ago during my first trip to Italy. We LOVED it -- this small hotel is located about 1 block from St. Marks Square, around the corner from the Bridge of Sighs. Couldn't ask for a better location. The rooms are clean and bright with a bathroom attached. The hotel has a beautiful rooftop terrace -- great to sit outside at night and listen to the sounds of the city after a day of sightseeing. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast was included at the hotel's small family run restaurant.
