We stayed here with 2 other couples for 3 nights in September-04. Everyone agreed - we picked a winner! Staff was helpful and friendly, accomodations clean and well appointed, great location and certainly resonable. Casual and non-stuffy. Sent us off on a water taxi at...More
These are the words to describe a stay at the Ca Formenta. Wonderful location to go back to after a full day of touring - away from the crowds and by the water. Only 10-15 minutes walk from Piazza San Marco, and a very pleasant...More
I emailed Hotel Ca'Formenta to inquire about their rates as we needed a place to stay from Oct 25 - 28, 2005. They promptly responded back with options and one of them being a "Tourist Apartment" about 150 feet from the hotel. We booked the...More
We stayed 3 nights at this hotel from 23-26th October. Location is excellent just a short walk from St. Mark's Square. We booked a superior room sleeping 3 and had wonderful views of the lagoon and towards St. Marks Square. Room was quite spacious, and...More
The hotel is very good value for money in a very expensive city.
Take the water taxi. The hotel has its own jetty which means the water taxi pulls right up to the hotel rear door enabling luggage to be handed straight to the waiting...More
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.

Waterbus. Tell them you want to get off at The Aresenale stop. When you get off walk over 2 bridges ( away from san Marco) ..The hotel is on the left. In from the lagoon. The road junctions. It's inbetween 2 restaurants. If you get a chance walk along the laggon edge to the park.

Dear Mrs. Trinch,
from the Airport Marco Polo you can take a Water Taxi direct to our Hotel jetty, the taxi can take up to 8 people plus luggage; the cost for 6 people and luggage should be 120.00/130.00 Euro and the ride will take only 30 minutes.
You can also reserve it in advance from the Venezia Taxi website
In alternative there is the public Shuttle Boat ALILAGUNA Blue Line to Arsenale, it cost 15.00 Euro per person and takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
If you send us a direct email we can provide you with detailed instructions on a pdf file.
Looking forward to the pleasure of hearing further from you, we remain,
with best regards,
Marco Simonetto, Manager
