The hotel was just a short distance from the railway station via the ferry and is noticeable on the Grand Canal and only a short walk once disembarked from the ferry. The hotel is old world construction and the decor is that style. On arrival...More
My husband booked this hotel as a birthday treat . We had a water taxi from the airport which was awesome , coming into the grand canal and seeing life on the water is very different and fantastic to admire. This hotel is on the...More
I feel like overall this hotel was too expensive and not a good value. The location was good- quiet yet centrally located. The building is very old, elegant, but a bit shabby. The room was nice, but looked out on a roof and the wall...More
Very nice hotel, though it does not have an elevator. It is on the grand canal, but too far from San Marco and other attractions, so you need to use either vaporetto or a taxi. Very good breakfast. Check in took a long time, as...More
We stayed in the hotel for four nights. The hotel is classic Venetian style, so don't be expecting a modern hotel room. Perfect location for getting around Venice, about 10 minutes walk from Rialto bridge, 15 minutes to piazalle Roma. We took the water bus...More

We were a little bewildered about this ourselves but after a little research decided that the Alilaguna water taxi was the best (only? cheapest?) way to go. At the Airport ask for directions to the connecting terminal (you should be looking for the orange line/Linea Arancio). There are convenient 'walk-a-lators' which will spare you a long hike! As I recall, a one-way ticket is 15Euros (steep, but so is all of Venice). Get off at the 5th stop (San Stae--the 'conductor' will let you know and help you off-load your bags). The stop is at the open square in front of a church. Cross the square going to your left (Grand Canal behind you) and look for a small iron-railed bridge. That's the starting point to your walk to the hotel. There was a trash barrel just by the bridge with a map of the route to the Ca'Favretto which was very helpful. Take a picture with your cell phone or sketch the map to use as a reference. Watch for landmarks as you go as you will undoubtedly use San Stae as your chief vaporetto stop for the hotel when you tour around the city. Have fun! Get lost! It's a small town and you cant go too far without coming to water eventually. Use the vaporetto (more a 'water subway' than a 'taxi')! Good luck!

Yes, water taxi is the most practical transport from the airport. It will deliver you to the San Cassiano's private landing stage, you can enjoy your welcome drink a few minutes later on the same terrace. Check 'Venice Link' for water taxi details, they do a special rate for arrival / departure transfers. In our case the arrival from the airport was in a shared water taxi but for the departure to the Cruise Port the boat was just for the pair of us.
