Hotel Ca' Formenta, VeniceCastello 1650, Via Garibaldi, Venice
Lying just a few minutes away from Piazza San Marco (St Mark's Square) in the heart of Venice, the Hotel Ca' Formenta has a marvellous strategic position on Via Garibaldi. This is Castello, the largest of the six 'sestieri' (the areas that make up the city). Castello forms the eastern part of the town and puts you just a short distance from the Venice Biennale Pavilion of International Modern Art.
This Venice hotel was entirely restored during 2003, in typically Venetian decor and style. The 14 guestrooms here are beautifully and elegantly dressed and come with all the modern comforts you would expect - satellite television, air conditioning, direct dial phone, minibar, hairdryer and room safe. There is free WiFi internet connection available in the lobby of the Hotel Ca'Formenta. All rooms have a bathroom with shower, and a work desk.
A buffet breakfast is served each morning in the breakfast room and, during the summer months, you can take your meal on one of the two tables out front of the hotel - terrific views and a lovely way to start your day in Venice.
As well as the unmissable headline sights of Venice - the Doges Palace, the Basilica di San Marco, the Bridge of Sighs, the Accademia and countless others - the local area has much to see. This is the heart of Venice, buzzing with life yet not overwhelmed with tourists. There are good restaurants and cafes, post office, bank, supermarket, grocery store, even a fish market. Nearby is the Church of San Pietro di Castello, the former Cathedral of Venice.
