Close to fine shopping and only a few minutes from St Mark's Square, this quaint boutique hotel offers views, wifi, beautiful Venetian art and a pretty good breakfast! Would definitely stay again.

Historical Traveler Reviews Kette Hotel Venice
Hotel Kette was a superb venue for a surprise anniversary gettaway. Our room was in the 'Superior Double' category, and matched this description to a T. The staff were very helpful e.g organised our night at the opera. The breakfast was great as an extra stomach lining when going out to face the nippy winter weather. December is a great time of the year to visit a Catholic city like Venice, San Marco square is almost empty in the morning (despite the pigeons ofcourse). We were very lucky with the weather, no flooding, and bright and sunny. Must also mention the showers in the hotel (as nearly every other reviewer does), they were terrific! Happy holidays!
Moved to another hotel by Kette
Upon arriving at the Kette, my sister-in-law and I were told that the "computer had been down all morning" and as a consequence we were being moved to another hotel around the corner. When we checked with the booking agent after our trip, we found that the Kette had actually overbooked and the popular wisdom was that as two women we would be the easiest to displace. We were moved to the Saturnia which we were later told was a higher rated hotel than Kette. However, our room was extremely small (although well remodeled) with a small window over-looking another roof. The air conditioning unit did not function (and luckily we were able to just leave the window open for air).
However, the shower head could not be adjusted to direct the spray only in the shower area--thus a very wet bathroom when trying to test the temperature before entering shower. Obviously, we did not get one of the better rooms in the hotel. To give the Saturnia its due, the desk attendants were very helpful with restaurant and other suggestions. The breakfast was also very good. Since we were only spending one night, we did not approach management about the issues with the room. I am told that booking at one hotel and then being transferred to another under some excuse is not uncommon in Europe, but in twenty years of travel, this is the first such occurrence.
We arrived in Venice in the pouring rain, and were delighted to find the warm Kette Hotel. I was a little concerned because I had booked the "economy room", but we were thrilled with our room. We had a large comfortable double bed in a large room. The all marble bathroom had a great bathtub and shower. (We used the towel warming bars to dry our wet clothes.) The breakfast room was excellent. The location couldn't have been better. We highly recommend this hotel.
Good Hotel - in quiet location but central
Stayed at this hotel in late September. Room small but with a good bed.
Shower very forceful. Standard of cleaning good - airconditioning worked but just! We were on the first floor and overlooked a small canal. Very entertaining from 6pm - 9pm with singing, accordian playing in the Gondolas going past our window. Breakfast at the hotel is very nice with plenty of choice and good value. The Breakfast room was very crowded however which was not good as Venice is a very crowded city!
The lounge area was much quieter and idal for a pre-dinner drink before venturing out into the hordes. The location of the hotel was excellent - only 5 minutes from St Marks Square but in a peaceful location. Staff professional rather than friendly. Venice itself was very crowded and expensive. I would love to return but maybe in April/early May!
Beautifully decorated, nice staff
A very nice hotel. We had two rooms...one for my wife and I and one for the three kids. The kids room was fantastic, right on the canal and pretty large. Ours was much smaller but still good. It was a little hard to find the hotel but worth the search. Great breakfast.
A great engagement!
Took my girlfriend to Venice as a suprise birthday present and stayed at the Hotel Kette. Sound decision. Room overlooked a small canal; bathrooms in marble with a nice power shower. Ace bed. Excellent stay.
Then again, I proposed and she said yes, my judgement may have been clouded! Fantastic stay.
Very nice Hotel Kette
We stayed here for 3 nights in March 2003. Had two rooms for our party. One overlooked the canal and the other overlooked the street. Rooms were small but well appointed and had somewhat more room than some other 3 star hotels in Italy. A very good location, minutes from San Marco, but on a very quiet street and canal, just a short walk from La Fenice. Had a nice breakfast room/bar. Staff was helpful and very fluent in English. However, they only seemed to recommend very expensive restaurants (very expensive even by Venice standards). We paid about 190 Euros per night per room, which seemed good for the quality. Definitely would stay here again.
We stayed at the Kette around a month ago and couldn't have been happier. Our room was beautifully furnished and surprisingly spacious. The bathroom was also huge in comparison to other hotels in the same category. Hotel staff were very friendly and the location is fantastic. Would definitely stay there again. Highly recommend it! :)
Really enjoyed this hotel
Stayed here several years ago (before they discovered how good they were and increased the prices) and loved it. It's has a pleasing appearance and is wonderfully located near the Piazza San Marco but set back from the noise of the main streets around the piazza. The accomodations were good, the rooms furnished nicely, and the staff helpful and friendly. Nice breakfast, a very good place to stay.
Kind at the Kette
My friends and I (a group of 6) stayed at the Kette for a long weekend in November of 2001. It was just after the 9/11 activities and they couldn't have been kinder. The hotel is in a Great location & very easy to find. The staff was very nice, especially our bartender, Gianluca. Our rooms all looked out onto a quiet canal and were very clean.
We had a great stay!
Ciao! The "loud Americans"

Our flight from Dubai was interesting to say the least...we were all in Business class and
that's a story. We pulled up at business class check in as the rest of our trip is business and
the guy told us we were travelling economy. Paul ranted and raved that our whole trip was Business and there must be some mistake. He pulled out the …
... the Pizzale Roma. Walked past the Pizzale Roma and they place was a madhouse as people were getting on and off the water taxis and heading all different directions.
This was the beginning of how to best experience Venice, walk around slowly and take in all the sights and sounds! The architecture is a jumble of many different periods in history and many of the passages are very narrow and oh so interesting.
Shopped at the Coop ...
... glorious sounds of this amazing destination.
A few of the activities we did decide to make time for included a Vivaldi Concert of Dario's favorite (The Four Seasons), a tour of the old Fenice Opera House, people watching in St. Mark's Square and a trip out to Murano....the island in Venice famous for amazing blown glass.
Teatro La Fenice is an opera house in Venice, Italy. It is one of the most famous theaters ...
... into a nice restaurant to warm up! At the restaurant we ordered pizza and hot chocolate. As soon as they brought out the hot chocolate I nearly fainted, it looked so delicious. The hot chocolate was so thick and creamy, I could've died. It tasted like they actually did just melt chocolate. That hot chocolate was DEFINITELY the best hot chocolate I'd ever tasted!
Venice was really pretty. I see where momma was coming ...
Finally, our guide let us loose in the city. By that time the light, occasional rain had become steady and would thoroughly soak us within a few hours. Rain. Oh, do I have stories about rain. The rain we experienced in Venice actually came the closest to the type of rain--hard, drenching, incessant--I had experienced in the rain forest of Costa Rica.I had not missed it.
And though we were soaked and my feet nearly frozen (note: do not wear ...
