Situated a hop, skip and a “wait, what happened, I’m lost” from the Rialto Bridge, the Residenza Ca’ Riccio is a six-room B&B located inside a 15th-century cloister. Offering friendly service, comfortable rooms, and old-fashioned charm, it’s a gem worth hunting down.
Pros: Fabulous location. Tons of charm. Friendly service. AC.
Cons: No elevator (and many stairs). Breakfast starts late.
The owners have worked remnants of the building’s ancient porticos into the Ca’ Riccio’s super rustic (yet well kept) décor. Arches and Spanish tiles run through the corridors, which feel like something out of Zefirelli's "Romeo and Juliet."
Rooms at the Residenza Ca’ Riccio are quite pretty and old fashioned, with high ceilings, wrought-iron bed frames, and lovely wooden furnishings. (We especially loved the tall, mirrored armoire we saw in one room.) Each room has a café table and chairs—plus wine glasses for enjoying your evening vino.
All rooms are air conditioned and equipped with a telephone, satellite television and minibar.
The private bathrooms are a treat, with big showers or bathtub/shower combos with whimsical tiling. Jacuzzi tubs are also available.
A buffet breakfast is included in the room rate. Early birds should, note, however, that it does not start until 8:30 a.m., which could get you sightseeing later than you’d like. Free Wi-Fi is available in some, but not all, rooms (ask ahead).

About the Residenza Ca' Riccio neighborhood
Situated north and west of the train station, Cannaregio provides some of the city's cheapest sleeps and eats. It's the most navigable "sestiere" in the city and by far the most convenient area from which to explore Venice. Adjacent to the train station on one end and bordering San Marco at the Rialto Bridge on the other, here you’ll find the Jewish Ghetto and some of Venice’s finest palaces, among them the breathtaking Ca d’ Oro.
