... of Italy. In fact they fled to the islands as a place of refuge from one northern invasion and stayed there. They also took alot of influence from Turkey in the Byzantine times when they invaded there. The palace was the place from which the senators and justices ruled. We heard that Venetian politics has been as unstable and intriguing as Italian politics still is.

Historical Traveler Reviews Locanda Ca' Amadi Venice
This is a beautiful Hotel with a very gracious staff.
I couldn't believe we could find such quality in Venice for such a reasonable price. Everything about our stay there was perfect. I will go again!
Hard to find but well woth it. We had two excellent room with the best water pressure in Venice. Clean bathrooms comfortable beds (hard pillows) tall ceilings with shutters for the windows. ( true blackout).
Good but continental breakfast. I'll be back often.
This hotel was wonderful. Just one warning before I go about how great this hotel is - I made the reservation online months in advance but when we arrived they informed us that they overbooked the hotel. They put us up at one their other hotels for the night. The other hotel really sucked and I was up all night because the room was next to an alley and all I could hear was the noisy people walking by. The next morning we went back to Ca' Amadi and when I told them about the other hotel they knocked 10 euros off the bill. When they brought us to our room I couldn't believe how nice it was. It looked like a room for Royalty. The room itself wasn't huge but it was beautiful. The bathroom was extremely clean and even had heated towel racks! They even gave us a complimentary bottle of champagne. I don't know if they do that for everyone or just because I complained about the first night. I can't comment on the breakfast because I wasn't feeling well in the a.m. so we didn't eat. We only paid 70 euros for this room and it was defiantly the nicest (not to mention cheapest) hotel of our entire trip. Just don't let them put you up at their other hotel if they tell you they overbooked the hotel - it sounds like we weren't the only people that happened to. I would defiantly stay at this hotel again - still can't believe it was only rated a 3 star. (a bit hard to find but worth the trouble)
Best Accommodation in Venice
This is a superb hotel. It is the best 3 star European accommodation I have stayed at. Small, with beautifully finished rooms, this hotel was exceptional. The staff were fantastic too. Whilst staying there we discovered the airline we had booked to fly to Paris with had gone bankrupt! The manager spent the whole morning tracking down alterative airlines and even booked the flight for us. Everything about this hotel was 5 star, especially the service!!
I couldn't expect something better. Just wonderful. The only remark is that I booked two nights, but on arrival the first one was unavailable, and so they arranged us to stay in an other hotel (not a pleasent one).
But the second night they gave us the suite just for 70 Euros.
My wife and I stayed in January 2004 in Ca'Amadi in both of the the two
Loved Locanda Ca Amadi
We stayed here the end of October 2003. It is a bit hard to find, down two small alleyways, but perfectly safe. Excellent location minutes from the Rialto Bridge, and yet off the beaten track. Lovely room and bathroom, roomy and very clean. On a side canal; great to hear the gondonlas going by. Easy walk to St. Marks. Tizano, at end of alleyway, great for lunch-superb sandwiches, paninis, pizza.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, September 19-22, 2003. It was a wonderful place! It took a little looking to find it, but what a treat once we arrived! The location is perfect, just a short walk to the Rialto Bridge and only 10 minutes from St. Marks. The staff was friendly, spoke very good English. The owner, Mauro, couldn't have been nicer. He personally walked us to the meeting place for our boat trip to the Murano glass factory, which was included in the price of the room. We had a suite, just off the breakfast room. It was wonderful to watch the gondolas from the window. The room was very large, and the bathroom was incredible - all marble, floor to ceiling with a huge shower/tub combo. The room was decorated in Venetian style, very tasteful with high ceilings. The breakfast was simple but good. I could not recommend this place more highly. The only downside was that you had to carry your bags up the flight of stairs to reach the hotel entrance. The price was very reasonable. Enjoy your stay!
Perfect for us
The only real problem we had with this hotel was finding it! Its located down some pretty dodgy backstreets, but is practically 500 metres from the Rialto Bridge and only 10 minutes walk to St Marks.
Once you find it, however, it is very pleasant and clean, having only been open for 5 or so months.
We stayed in a suite overlooking a busy canal which added to the overall atmosphere of the city. The hustle and bustle of canal boats was nicely noisey and not too intrusive. Breakfast was simple and fresh, and the staff were friendly and spoke good english. On top of this, the prices were very reasonable copmpared to others in nearby locations... we would definitely recommend this hotel!
