Expert review of Ca' Zose

A homely little place, perfect for visiting some of Venice's most impressive art collections.

Sisters Valentina and Graziella Campanati run this 12-room hotel in the Dorsoduro district with great enthusiasm. They’re always on hand with good advice, and always happy to book tickets, taxis and restaurant tables. A private water entrance along a little canal means you can step out of your water taxi and straight into the hotel.

Location: 

Dorsoduro, on the southern bank of the Grand Canal, is a quiet, arty area, home to the Accademia gallery, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, the Punta della Dogana gallery and a host of lovely churches including the magnificent Salute. From Ca’ Zose it’s no distance to the Accademia and Salute vaporetto stops, but I find it’s much more fun to hop on the traghetto when I need to cross the canal from here to St Mark’s.

Bedrooms: 

Spotlessly clean rooms, many with exposed wooden beams, are decorated with prettily painted furniture and brocade bedspreads and curtains. The beds are firm-to-hard; the bathrooms are small but well-appointed though the showers are rather tiny. Rooms on the canal side of the building are generally larger but if you’re a light sleeper, you may find the delivery boats disturb you in the morning.

Eating and drinking: 

Breakfast is served in the neat dining room off the reception. It’s rather unfortunate that the pastries tend to be pre-packaged and the selection of fresh fruit, yogurt etc isn’t great. Still, there are plenty of good cafés in the area to compensate for this.

Service: 

Friendly, helpful and very well informed.

Who stays there: 

Visitors who value Ca’ Zose’s proximity to great art – classical, modern and contemporary – dominate. But the attentive sister-owners make this a great place for women travelling alone too.

Price advice: 

There are plenty of last minute, long stay and early booking deals throughout the year, so chances of getting a good deal are high.

Pros: 
Ideally placed for reaching major sights without being in the middle of the tourist mass
Cons: 
Canal-side rooms can be a little noisy
Breakfast is disappointing given the attention to detail in other aspects of the hotel
