We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The rooms were small but very well appointed and very clean. We had a great lagoon view and a really nice touch was the bottle of wine we received on our arrival. It is within walking distance...More
If you are looking for a 5* luxury palace, then Ca' Formenta is not for you. But if you want a clean, tidy, nice hotel, with good sized rooms and friendly staff, then I would recommend this hotel unreservedly.
It is in a great location....More
The hotel is well located for exploring Venice on foot. Nice journey from Marco Polo Airport on Water Taxi (a bit expensive at €80 but worth it).
Some good Local restaurants nearby on Via Garibaldi .
All in all in an expensive city this is...More
Ca' Formenta is everything that Trip Advisor commentators said and even more. They have opened up a new section and we were fortunate to stay in room 407 with a direct water view on the second floor. Check the photos from our room. Room was...More
This was our first trip to Venice. We flew in from Rome. Prior to our arrival, we were a bit nervous about the transportation logistics from the airport to our hotel. It turns out, we had nothing to worry about. The stop for public water...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... More
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
