This hotel is located in the heart of Venice, just a stroll from St. Mark's Square and Rialto Bridge, but has a calm, secluded position despite the large number of tourists. With just a few minutes walk the guests can reach the main landings to avail of frequent public transport which takes all over the city, as well as to the other islands of the lagoon (Torcello, Burano, Murano, Chioggia, Lido, etc.).Campo Santa Maria Formosa, the location of this hotel in Venice, is one of the liveliest and characteristic areas of the city. The Renaissance style Santa Maria Formosa church, with its baroque bell tower, gets its name from the appearance of The Blessed Virgin in the form of a "formosa" or shapely, beautiful woman.The same area hosts the prestigious Querini Stampalia Foundation, with its rich and much-used public library and a considerable gallery of three-hundred paintings by artists from Veneto, including G. Bella, Palma il Giovane, Palma il Vecchio, G. Bellini, P. Longhi.

Terrible experience, do not book economy room!

My girlfriend and I are both backpacking Europe, Venice is expensive full stop so we knew, we booked Ca Formosa based on the positive reviews, description and the price. We thought we were getting a good deal (76euro p.n) on a good room. We've stayed in economy rooms before and they're not that bad, but this was terrible. It was literally an attic! I couldn't walk in half the room out of fear of hitting my head on the roof. None of this was in the description at all. When we took this up with the manager he pretty much said too bad this is what you booked. He was totally unprofessional, rude and actually yelled at us. Funny that considering we booked Ca Formosa yet actually stayed around the corner in Ca Malipiero. We were told this is the room because they're sister hotels. So how could that be the room! False advertising???? This put a dampener on our Venice experience, such a shame. We will also never use this website again.
