This hotel was a truly bad experience. We were four people staying in two double rooms, and there were rats inside one of the rooms. The hotel has showed an extremely bad service, has not replied to our complaint nor apologized. The day after, we...More
First of all this is not more than a hostel. No names written outside no signs. We checked-in from an other hotel called Belle Arti. In Domus Cavanis there is no reception desk or someone in charge. We stayed there only for 1 night. Our...More

We really didn't see a lot of cars/trucks since it appears the preferred form of travel is by water-boats, gondolas and walking. There may be some parking down by the dock area - just not sure. Definitely didn't see a designated "parking lot" for the hotel or any other business.
