“Old world charm”
real old world style, and the staff were very courteous and efficient.Like staying in a stately home.Set in quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of Venice.Beautiful views of the canals and countryside.
“Hotel with the personal touch”
Our hotel stay was just as described, the rooms were very comfortable with antique furniture. The staff are the hotel were very helpful and the service provided was very personal. The location of th hotel is ideal if you wish to see Venice but stay in a charateristic hotel in a quiet village. It is close to the beach with nice eateries.
“What a find”
If you are prepared to travel about 30 minutes total on the Venice lagoon (fun)to Lido and take a short bus to this hotel you will be very rewarded. Its a 15th century residence that used to be a convent and is lovingly restored. The price was about half that of the tiny overrated rooms available in Venice and its location provides a bit of a respite from the crowds. The staff are freindly and helpful and the owner, who owns an art gallery adjacent, is full of history. The room was really two rooms with a small balcony overlooking a courtyard. Clean spacious and akin to a movie set from Marie Antoinette. A memorable stay and the only experience in Venice that felt like a deal.
“Fantastic hotel, lives up to expectations.”
The hotel is very nice clean and the staff are friendly, dont be put off by the location, the boat trip from the Lido to Venice is a matter of 15 minutes, the bus service from the hotel is every 20 minutes. It was nice to get away from Venice at night as it becomes very noisy and too busy. You wont be disapointed by the peace and tranquil setting of the hotel. They dont however provide tea making facilities in your room, we purchased our own kettle in order to be comfortable.
“A great place to stay...”
Don't be put off by the location of this place - travelling around Venice is really very easy, and the waterbus between main Venice and Lido runs every few minutes (the journey on the waterbus is a highlight in itself :) ). The bus runs from the waterbus terminal, and is a simple, straightline 10 minute ride. The hotel is in a residential area - there is a restaurant around the corner, a bar and a couple of shops too. We ate near the waterbus terminal - lots of restaurants along the main road to the beach, and very nice too. Also an advantage because you don't pay the higher prices on Lido that you easily can in main Venice... Hotel itself was nice - big rooms, TV, wifi for a small charge, and breakfast was a good opportunity to fill up too :) Nice people, nice area, easy to get everywhere - recommended :)
“Quiet, charming, but well off the beaten path”
Ca Del Borgo is a very charming 7 room hotel managed by a very friendly couple. It is a perfect place to stay if you want to be away from the hustle of central Venice but short travel time to St. Marks square. Transportation consists of a boat ride combined with a bus ride, both which are easily accesible. The room I had was on the first floor and quiet. It is in a very small village with a couple of restaurants.
“Small palazzo close to lagoon-side walk”
Ca del Borgo and Ca Alberti are sister hotels, both restored small palazzi, in the pedestrianised centre of the old village of Malamocco on Venice Lido. The furnishings are antique and beautiful, the rooms spacious and comfortable and the staff and service impeccable and friendly. For us the location was ideal and contributed a lot to our very enjoyable stay. Visitors on a short city-break wishing to spend every minute in Venice might find Malamocco further away than they want, but it is only 15 mins on the frequent A and B bus services to the Lido boat stops, then a 10 min crossing into Venice. However, if you want to spend some time relaxing by walking or cycling beside the lagoon or on the long sea walls, maybe playing golf or tennis or visiting the beaches at either end of Lido, Malamocco is hard to beat. You can also visit the Thursday morning market at Chioggia (no 11 bus then boat). There are two restaurants close to the hotel, one seen as more trendy than the other but without any menu, only the day's specials recited by the waiter and not accepting card payments, The other is more the village trattoria, takes card payments and has a menu. Both serve good food, one exclusively and the other mainly fish. There are also plenty of places to eat on and around the Gran Via in Lido centre. We already know Venice well and like the relaxed atmosphere on Lido, with the option to cross into the city itself easily when we want to. We love to watch the sunset over the lagoon.
“Small is Beautiful...”
The hotel is in the village of Malamocco on the island of Lido and is great if you want to escape from the hub bub and busyness of Venice island. It's ideal if you want a more relaxed and peaceful environment a bit off the beaten track - which really suited us. You can take walks down the island by the sea/water/promenade and enjoy the views across to venice. This is probably not the hotel for you if you want to be in the thick of Venice - it takes about 40 minutes to get into Venice itself from the hotel - walk to bus stop (5 minutes) , bus ride to San Elizabeth port (20 minutes) where you pick up the water bus which takes you into Venice itself (another 15 minutes). The buses and water buses are frequent and run until late. We bought a 5 day ticket for 50 euros each which allows you to travel on road buses and the water buses for free. We found the bus trips and water taxis really enjoyable. The hotel is small with only a few rooms, so consequently the service is excellent - the breakfast is buffet style. They don't serve evening dinner - there is a tratorria in the village which served great food - at reasonable prices. There are lots of restaurants 20 minutes away at San Elizabeth port and also in Venice. The 2 or 3 staff get to know you personally as the hotel is small and they are very knowledgable and helpful about Venice. The other great thing was that this hotel was about how the price of equivalent standard other hotels in the centre of Venice.
“Old World Charm”
If you would like to visit Venice without having to stay in the hustle and bustle of the the city,then can I recommend a stay at either the Ca Del Borgo or it's sister hotel Ca Alberti.Situated on the Lido in the village of Malamocco,these hotels are perfect for anyone who appreciates authentic,unpretentious old world charm.The location on first impression may not appear to be suitable for a short stay in Venice,but believe me with the transport network you are literally 35 mins away from hotel doorstep to St Marks square.The hotel staff are very friendly and will go out of thier way to make sure your trip is pleasurable.I will definitely be returning!
“Quite, friendly and very relaxing”
I stayed for 5 nights in July 07 and found that the hotel exceeded my expectations, considering what a bargain it was. The hotel is in a quiet area of the Lido, well connected to the busier parts of the Lido by local transport. The hotel interior was very impressive and the room well furnished and very comfortable - air conditioned too. Ensuite bathroom had everything I needed. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. I would certainly go back.
