Travel Blogs from Venice
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 …
Our vacation in Italy has been amazing! Four days in Rome, two days in Florence and now we are in Venice. It is obvious that this is a culture and city like no other as you cross the long bridge from the mainland to this city built on a marsh. Having watched Francesco DeMosta's "Venice" (DVD) before our trip, we had an appreciation for the history …
... were surprised the ship went out to sea via the Grand Canal, right past San Marco Square.
What a sight.We noticed a couple of towers have quite a lean as you will see in the photos.They played Italian songs and listening to Ave Maria as we sailed the Grand Canal was a very special experience.The seagulls flew with the ship and ...
... the canals is a peaceful haven for a short time. But we were lucky enough to enjoy Venice when it was only semi busy and we could still enjoy all the beautiful bridges and canals. We finished off our amazing day by heading back to Lido and eating our dinner on the beach. We were so excited to have the beach so close to us that we woke up very early the next morning to catch a beautiful sunrise before we started our journey to Florence. We all agree. ...
... with sparkling glitter. There are half masks and full masks, masks with gigantic noses and some with no nose at all. It really is a sight to see.
Dave seems just as enthralled in this quaint little water village as I am. But as he eyes off a little café, I know exactly what he is thinking. Coffee time. We are yet to have tried an Italian Coffee, in Italy, so this is a moment we’ve been waiting for OUR WHOLE ADULT ...

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!
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).
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.
Stayed at this hotel in late September. Room small but with a good bed.
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"
