La Calcina has been a favorite of ours for years. The principal management are committed to service, excellence, and integrity. Truly gracious folks you'll fall in love with. The location is awesome, the accommodations wonderful, tasteful and magical. And Venice ahhhhh Venice, don't miss this chance to enjoy being in the midst of this amazing place. The complementary trip to...

Hotels in Venice are expensive, so the traveller needs to weigh carefully the relative importance of an elevator (as an example) , the desire for a view or a large room. For us, La Calcina was a good choice in providing what we most wanted. We have previously stayed near Piazza San Marco in a smaller, more expensive, noisier room...

We had a lovely, lovely room overlooking a major canal. Breakfast was very good and the service was excellent. The pensione even had a computer for guest use, free of charge. We took advantage of their offer of a prix fixe dinner at their restaurant, La Piscina, and found that it was truly excellent. In addition, La Calcina's staff was...

My wife and I stayed at Pensione La Calcina for 3 nights in early October. It had been recommended by friends who had stayed twice before so we were confident of good accommodations. It didn't disappoint. The room was not large but was very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent - much beyond what we expected and the front...

La Calcina is obviously very popular with TripAdvisor members. It gets consistently good reviews and it clearly has a loyal following. Having just returned from a three night stay there, I have mostly very positive things to report, but a few lingering concerns. Back in March 08 my wife and I were planning a trip to Venice to celebrate our...

Dear Madam/ Sir, good and not perfect is actually what we want to be. In order not to bore Tripadvisor's readers we can just say that for the negatives we shall try our best to improve and your review is sufficient to help us doing this. On the other hand It would have been a much greater help for us...

I booked at the hotel based on the glowing reviews here. I have to say that while I agree it has many fine qualities, it is not all that. The rooms are very small, one was only 11 metres! The lack of elevator is a nuisance for luggage. The staff at the restaurant (La Piscina) at breakfast are quite wonderful...

Dear Guest, thank you for giving us a 4 star review in spite of all this negatives. Just a few notes of explanation. 1) We write in our correspondence the surface of the rooms, you were informed about it. 2) We do not have an elevator but we have a 24 hours porter service; as far as we know there...

Saw this hotel reviewed in a magazine and contacted the Hotel immediately. We were offered an apartment close to the hotel , which was quiet , clean and spacious,with its own balcony. The hotel is situated in a quiet yet beautiful spot away from the crowds but within easy walking distance of the main attractions. Additionally , and most importantly...

I agree with the comments already posted, this was our 5th year staying at this Hotel. The food on the restaurant on the decking has without a doubt improved over the last years, I believe that the Hotel has concentrated on this aspect. It must have one of the best outlooks for eating in Venice

My spouse and I stayed in a canal view room in early July prior to leaving on a hiking trip to the Dolomites. (Cost was about 225 Euro but well worth it - nothing is inexpensive in Venice). The hotel is within a few metres walk from the Zatere waterbus stop/Alilaguna stop. Do not underestimate how convenient this is when...

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
