Ca’ San Girorgio Hotel Review

Updated: Feb 16, 2019

The first hotel we stayed at on our 18 day European vacation was the Ca’ San Girorgio in Venice, Italy. This perfect bed and breakfast was ideal for our first introduction to Europe. It was an intimate space that we truly felt welcome at.

Although we arrived after the staff had left, we walked in to a letter and our keys on a small table in the foyer.

I wanted to just pop in and write up a quick post just to share images of this adorable spot. So enjoy!

Ca’ San Girorgio Entrance and Grounds

Okay how cute is this place?! Not only was it super cute on the outside with the balconies and gorgeous large alley, but you enter the hotel through an age-old portico that opens onto a beautiful private courtyard embellished by a well head dating back to 14th century, strictly kept in its original version. Truly when I walked in for the first time it was everything I could have dreamed of and more.

The bed and breakfast kept true to its name and included a delicious breakfast every morning. They even offered delicious cappuccinos, a perfect way to start the day.

Ca’ San Girorgio Room

Our room was perfect. High vaulted ceilings, a large bed, balcony, and even a heated towel rack! We heard that Venice can be known for mosquitos so we did not keep the balcony open while we slept. But! It was great to have open when we were relaxing in the middle of the day and also to check on the weather! Which sadly, it rained mostly the entire time we were there.

Each room in the entire hotel had a different mask on the door, with a matching mask keychain on the set of keys we were given.

Like I mentioned, the bathroom was nice with a heated towel rack which was perfect for the cold mornings. It also had a bidet and a large window that I could open up to let the steam out!

Ca’ San Girorgio Location

The hotel is literally right on the Grand Canal. In the cover photo of this post, you can see Dylan standing at the end of the alley standing right at the canal. And we could see it from our balcony. Check out the Instagram post I shared of me standing on the balcony:

From our hotel, it was easy to navigate to the Rialto Bridge, which was only about 10 minutes away. In the map screenshot below I’ve dropped pinpoints on different important things not to miss while in Venice, which all were super easy to get to.

One benefit of Venice is even though there are no streets, there are a lot of arrows throughout the alleyways to direct you to important destinations such as the Rialto Bridge or St. Mark’s Square. When we first set out to explore we just sort of took off walking and were able to easily find the places we wanted without the use of our phone or a map.

To get to the hotel, we just took the ACTV line 5 bus from Marco Polo Airport to the area where cars can still reach in Venice, which is near the train station. This cost 6 Euro each, and made me comfortable because I didn’t have to worry about being cold on the water taxi or have to figure out the taxi system. From the bus we just walked the rest of the way to the hotel, which was about a 15-minute walk.
