TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Casa Verardo - Residenza D'Epoca Venice
Great staff, comfortable air-conditioned (that worked) rooms, excellent location not too near S. Mark Square. Not cheap but a good value. Our first trip to Venice but experienced with visits and periods of residence in Europe and the Orient. Visiting late June with 13 yr. old g'daughter and a good "first experience" to start a two week trip.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Casa Verardo - Residenza D'Epoca Venice
Perfect for Families
We stayed here last easter with our three children in perfect connecting rooms. The location is super for Venice -- close to San Marco, but on a quiet canal. Our rooms were renovated and appealing - the children's room was large and had three big windows overlooking the pretty canal. My youngest daughter unfortunately became very ill during our stay and I cannot thank the owners enough for how kind and accomodating they were -- they found us a doctor over easter weekend and sent out to buy medicines at the pharmacy. This isn't the Danielli, but for the price and category I can't recommend it highly enough.
Charming, friendly hotel
Not that the Casa Verardo needs any further positive reviews, but have just returned (early January 2005) from a wonderful 5 days in this city that surpasses all expectations. This is a truly excellent, small, charming hotel with beautiful, old, spacious rooms and an extremely friendly and helpful staff.
The cleaning service is worthy of special mention. We returned late afternoon, every day to find the room spotless with crisp, new sheets and towels and the room smelling of the most delightful aroma.
If one is looking for an area for improvement, I would suggest that the breakfasts could be a little more generous as a simple, continental buffet is provided. But then that's maybe just the Irishman missing a full cooked breakfast.
I appreciate that (low season) we had a very special rate, paying only E100 per night, but I would have been happy, had I paid twice this amount. 5* rooms and service in a small, friendly, centrally-located establishment.
We stayed in this delightful hotel October 18-19, 2004. We were in room 5 on the 2nd floor and it could not have been nicer. It had a large, full marble bath with a shower you never wanted to leave. Three large windows that open over a quite canal. The complimentary breakfast was just what we needed to get started each morning and was served in a beautiful room. The staff were all very pleasant and the front desk was extremely helpful with my many questions. The location of the hotel was a short and direct walk from the San Zaccaria port off the Grand Canal and only one stop from the San Marco port. I highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again.
I can only assume that the people who have stayed at this hotel cannot be bothered to write a review. we stayed there for five nights at the beginng of August, service was very good, rooms above average, breakfast on the small terrace made a good relaxed start to the day. the hotal is located within a five minute walk of St Marks Square,yet away from all the hussle & bussle. We would certainly stay at the Casa Verardo if we ever foutunate enough to return to Venice and would recommend it to our friends.
Fantastic morning breakfast on the balcony!
Spent 3 nights in a lovely room on the first floor; beautiful bathroom, nice renovations, and very helpful and kind hotel staff. Fantastic location, and hearty continental breakfast on the balcony every morning was a wonderful way to start the day! Would definitely stay there again and also recommend to friends and family.
Would definitely go back!!!
I stayed at the Casa Verardo at the end of January 2004 and loved it!
As a female solo traveler I found it to be centrally located, clean, and felt safe. The hotel is a five minute walk from where the Alilaguna (the shuttle from the airport) drops you off. Its right by the St.
Mark's Square and lots of shops, etc. but is on an street (alley way is more like it in Venice) that is a little off the beaten path in a bit more residential area. Still, I never felt uncomfortable at all. And there is a restaurant 30 seconds walk from the hotel. The entrance is actually around the corner from what looks like the front of the building. Arriving at a wrought iron gate you must ring the buzzer to be admitted to a small courtyard. From there is an entrance to a hallway which has an elevator at the end. The reception is actually on the 2nd floor. Security wise, this is the only part that bothered me, that feasibly somebody could just enter and go directly to a floor without passing the reception first. My single room was very small but that didn't bother me at all. It had lovely furnishings and a great view over lots of surrounding rooftops. Although the bathroom wasn't enormous, I wasn't squished at all. The bathroom amenities were very nice (towel heater, etc.). Everything was very clean. The staff was very nice and spoke english (as it seems everyone in venice does).
There seemed to be lots of Americans and Brits staying here. Overall the hotel was mucher nicer than I had expected it to be and I would definitely return!
My friend and I stayed at Casa Verardo in July 2003. Even though there was a terrible heat wave the hotel had good air conditioning. It is very central and close to Saint Marks square. A good thing when you stay out late at night. The hotel is clean and the decor is very venitian. The attention is excellent and breakfast was good. They make their own croissants...mmmmm... The smell of fresh bread in the morning is always a good thing. Over all I would recommend it. HB
Been there on July 2003.. I really had a good time in this hotel. Very central location and warm service. It's a charming 'palazzo'. Our room (#202) was definitely nice (with canal view). Hard to find a place on the terrace for breakfast but if you get one is really unforgettable!
Excellent familiar service.
I've heard this year they have restored the hotel with new de lux rooms.
I've been onto the #306. Fantastic!
I'm planning to come back there with my wife for the next Venice Carnival.
They told me the best deals are obtainable by e-mail (specific requests).
I payed eu. 186 per night with an abundant buffet breakfast
A Venetian alternative
Stayed in Casa Verardo in November 2001, when Venice was very cold.
The hotel is very central but being down a back alley overlooking a very small canal it is also quiet.
The double room was large in a vertical sense, but at the same time rather cramped. The 'bathroom' was situated inside the room but in a kind of sealed wardrobe. The effect is a touch depressing.
Breakfast (not terrible) is served in a draughty hallway. November is too cold for meals on the terrace, although one may escape there briefly for a drink and a cigarette: even Venice seems to be getting California-ized, falling into line with the anti-smoking police-state mentality.
There is a fine wine bar and associated restaurant within a couple of minutes walk (north west), and the incomparable Corte Sconta restaurant only about ten minutes walk towards the Arsenale.
The location and relative cheapness of the place are what recommend the hotel. There was an odd mood hanging over the place, something like a family argument, and the I'm-really-an-opera-singer receptionist was in a foul temper throughout. Rehearsing a part, maybe. Perhaps this is just authentically of Venice, where people are known for their extremes of mental state. We left a valuable book in the room, and despite requests they have not returned it. This is the main reason I mark them down.

... Interesting for all, perfect for the engineer in our group.
Next stop, a bench overlooking the lagoon and the island of Giudica, watching an obscenely giant Costa cruise ship, leashed fore and aft to toy tugboats, lumber out to sea. Hope the captain can keep this one upright. All this sightseeing is making us hungry, and Schiavo, one of Venice's best wine shops is nearby. It's cichetti time, Venice's version of happy hour and tapas, and we point through glass ...

Now the highlight for today for us, our gondola ride. How fabulous it was meandering around all the canals, dodging other watercraft, and passing both Marco Polo and Casanovas' houses along the way. Our second visit to Venice and I just love it. Love it, Love it, Love it. ...
... boat sick , we had lots of pills on that leg of the journey! Although we walked a lot in Venice we tried not to do too much. We didn't book any tours or race around like In other places, we took it easy and went to cafes and ate gelato by the river. J said this was one of his favourite places which really surprised me but he said he felt relaxed here. We were even going to go and see the opera, since neither of us have ever been, but it wasn't on when we ...

Unfortunately there were construction works taking place (this appears to be a recurrent theme - this happened in Washington D.C. too), but that only fractionally took away from the majesty of the building. Interestingly, the four horses on the top of the Basilica were actually looted by Napoleon, who then had them used in the design for the Arc de Triomphe - but they were returned to Venice in 1815.

... After parking the car, it took a bit of guessing between Kareem & myself to figure out where we were going, how to buy boat tickets, where to embark, etc. Our hotel was on a separate island than the mainland, so we could take the public water taxi to a stop, then transfer to a stop where Hilton picks you up on their private boat. However, we decided the less transfers, the better. So we took the public taxi to a stop called Palanca, then walked the 10 minutes to the ...
