Expert review of Ca' del Nobile

This extremely central little hotel offers helpful service and an air of elegant calm.

Just a few steps off one of the busy main drags between St Mark’s and the Rialto is not somewhere you’d expect to find tranquillity, but six-room Ca’ del Nobile pulls it off. Quietly spoken manager Nicola presides over a civilised hush, and always seems to be at hand to provide a pick-me-up cappuccino or well informed advice on sights and attractions.

Location: 

Follow the throng northwards out of Piazza San Marco and along Calle del Fumo: Ca’ del Nobile is just off on the right. It’s perfectly situated for all the major sights, but this alley itself is not a major thoroughfare, so few people turn down it. This is one of the city’s lowest points: I was mesmerised on my last visit to watch acqua alta (high water) water bubbling up through the pavement way down below my front-of-house room.

Bedrooms: 

Ca’ del Nobile’s six bedrooms open off a long first floor reception, sitting and breakfast area, and are all large-ish by Venetian standards. The Casanova room, with its canopied bed and attractive exposed brick walls, is my favourite. But all the rooms are tastefully decorated with elegant contemporary-classic furniture: it’s all Venetian enough to remind you where you are but there’s not too much brocade or Murano glass.

Eating and drinking: 

Breakfast is served at little tables in the first-floor reception area, and is delicious with its freshly squeezed orange juice and excellent homemade cakes. Breakfast times are agreeably long too. During the rest of the day, Nicola and Anna will provide drinks on request.

Service: 

Discreet, professional, warm and knowledgeable: what more could you ask of hotel hosts?

Who stays there: 

I crossed paths with travellers of all types and ages as they studied the hotel’s good collection of guide books before plunging out for more sightseeing. The Casanova room is popular with couples on romantic getways.

Price advice: 

The hotel is extremely popular, and you’ll need to move fast to secure rooms in high season. Like most Venetian hotels, however, Ca’ del Nobile drops its prices hugely in the quieter months. 

Pros: 
Free minibar
Charming hosts
At the very centre of Venice
Cons: 
Proximity to crowds may not please everyone
There are two long flights of steps (and no lift) up to the hotel
