Located on the Via Garibaldi, Hotel Ca Formenta is in the hub of central Venice, just a 10-minute walk from St Mark's Square. This prime spot makes it an ideal base for exploring the palaces, churches and canals of this unique city.
Completely restored in 2003, the hotel has 14 rooms furnished in a typical Venetian style and featuring contemporary comforts, and some offer a view of the lagoon. Wi-Fi is free in the lobby.
The Hotel Ca Formenta serves a generous breakfast buffet, which you can enjoy al fresco in the inner courtyard or at a table in front of the hotel, while taking in the views of Venice. The restaurant is not open in the evenings, but there are plenty of options nearby.
Via Garibaldi is surrounded by coffee houses and restaurants, which offer an escape from the hustle and bustle of the Piazza. Within ten minutes' walk, you can be in the centre of St Mark's Square with its eponymous Basilica and the Doge's Palace. Stroll a little further to see the Rialto Bridge, straddled by stalls selling everything from candy-coloured glass to lace and traditional Venetian masks.
