Tucked into a tiny corner of the twisting San Polo area, the Locanda Ca' San Polo is worth finding. For avid walkers with a keen sense of direction, this hotel is a smart pick, about a 15-minute walk from everything, including the train station and the Accademia Bridge.
Pros: Central location. Friendly staff. Pretty and cozy.
Cons: Patchy Wi-Fi. No elevator.
The 16 guest rooms at the Ca’ San Polo range from dollhouse-like doubles to family rooms that sleep up to five. Regardless of square meters, each room is done up with full Venetian style, red and gold down to the last stitch. Wooden beams cross the ceilings in every room, and all rooms offer air conditioning, a TV, minibar and phone.
We appreciated the private bathrooms, which are spacious, impeccably clean and sparkling white. The showers are surprisingly wide, while larger family rooms are equipped with a bathtub.
Guests can take in the views of San Polo from the small rooftop terrace, tucked away high above the third-floor breakfast room (with some nice views of its own!). A breakfast buffet, with cheeses and meat, is included in the room rate.
Note: Although the Ca’ San Polo is equipped with an elevator, it only works while reception is open, from 7:30 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. (and we’ve heard tell that guests may only use it when accompanied by a member of the staff). Wi-Fi is free in the public areas.

About the Locanda Ca' San Polo neighborhood
North of the Rialto Bridge, Venetian life is a bit more relaxed in San Polo. Streets are not as packed, restaurants have more local flavor, and prices tend to be more affordable in general. By day you’ll find open-air markets and fish markets ("herbaria"), decked out in frescoed porticos. By night the area is home to hipsters for late-night "cicchetti" and great wines by the glass. You can easily walk to and from the area around the Rialto Bridge to San Marco in t10 minutes.
