Arrived at this hotel to find it needed ‘urgent maintenance work’ so would be closing that day and we would be staying in there sister hotel opposite (Belle Arti). (No one informed us of this until arrival at the hotel). After seeing 5 different rooms...More
This is a review of Belle Arti and Domus Cavanis (hotels are connected). Adorable location, may look far from the center on the map but it's only 10-15 min walk from the Doge's Palace ( Venice is all about walking though ;)) and the neighborhood...More
Close to the center of the city, big spacious room but small bathroom. The breakfast wad served at Belle Arti hotel next door, with poor choices. We stayed for 4 days, but I'm not sure if I could eat for another day the same food.

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.

We really didn't see a lot of cars/trucks since it appears the preferred form of travel is by water-boats, gondolas and walking. There may be some parking down by the dock area - just not sure. Definitely didn't see a designated "parking lot" for the hotel or any other business.
