Ca'Riccio - at home in Venezia :-)

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 21, 2007

Ca’Riccio is a lovely B&B or guesthouse, located in the upper (second) floor of an old Venetian house in eastern Canaregio. It was restored in 2004 and when I stayed here in 2007 I found everything I needed to relaxing after the long walks in the city.

They have 8 rooms, mostly located in the northern wing with windows to the south and one (where I stayed, photo 1) in the southern wing. Breakfast room and relax area are there too. But this southern wing is separated from the common rooms, so I had my own area with bathroom and bedroom. The bed was heavenly hard/firm, which I liked (I don't like too soft beds). It was very quiet up there and I could sleep with open window (no mosquitos at this time of 2007, or they didn’t find my room, lol...).

What I really loved was the elevated area in the breakfast room (photo 2) with nice and comfy sofas to relax or for reading. They didn’t have books up there in 2007, but will have over the course of time. Cristiano, the owners’ son, literally eats books, so hopefully he will drop them there when he finished them. The breakfast room itself is very nice with small tables and appealing furniture. I loved having my breakfast here.

Breakfast is included in the room rate, but in typical Italian style. They make you the coffee you want, have orange juice, a cornetto (like a croissant) and marmalade. (This was in 2007 but I would assume that they still have a similar type of breakfast also these days).

Their room rates given on to their website, direct booking there is possible in the meantime. Note that there is low season and high season; the dates described on the site.

Whatever they describe on their website is true. They are very guest oriented – ask for something and you will get it. The whole family, Lidia, Paolo and Cristiano, know so much about their beloved city and will be happy to tell you tales and stories and of course give you recommendations of where to go (sights, restaurants, etc).

Location: it is quite easy to find: if you start from Fondamente Nove, walk east and then into the forth calle, Calle dei Buranelli (or second before the next bridge). Continue straight ahead until you arrive at a small campo. Keep left and continue walking left (more or less crossing three small campi) until you see a canal in front of you. It is the fourth door on your left before the canale, the house right hand of a beautiful patio. Look for the sign Ca’Riccio at the door (small but easy to see).

The Riccio family is the best!
Christiano makes you feel right at home.
The hotel is quaint and conveniently located, about a 10 minute walk to San Marco and 5 minutes to the ferry at Fundamente Nove.
The rooms are extremely nice and very, very clean.
Breakfast is 5 star including cappucino, croissants, yogurt, and juice.
There is a little stocked refrigerator in every room and also a safe.
You can come and go as you please and the people who stay there tend to be civilized and respectful.
The hotel is renovated with beautiful ceramic tiles.
We just loved it so much that we went back a second time for 2 additional nights!

Romantic environment as well.
If you want peace and quiet and great service, this is the place to go!

Unique Quality: Enter on the 2nd floor.
Renovated, extremely clean.
Wonderful breakfast delivered directly to your room.
