Situated down a bit of a maze from the Rialto Bridge, the Residenza Ca’ Riccio is a six-room B&B in part of what was once a 15th-century cloister. Offering friendly service, simple yet comfortable accommodations and a healthy dose of old-fashioned charm, it’s a gem of a spot that’s worth hunting down.

Quick read

Pros: Fabulous location. Tons of charm. Friendly service.

Cons: No elevator (and many stairs). Breakfast starts late.


Rooms at the Residenza Ca’ Riccio have sky-high ceilings, wrought-iron bed frames, and crisp cream walls. Bedding comes in rich blue, and furniture is wooden with black iron accents. We especially loved the tall, mirrored armoire we saw in one room.

Each room comes complete with a café table and chairs—plus wine glasses for taking your evening vino. All rooms are air conditioned and equipped with a telephone, satellite television and minibar.


The private bathrooms are a treat. These have big showers or bathtub showers and whimsical tiles. Jacuzzi tubs are also available.


The owners have worked remnants of the building’s ancient porticos into the Ca’ Riccio’s super rustic (yet fresh!) décor. Arches and Spanish tiles run through the corridors, which feel like something out of Zefirelli's "Romeo and Juliet."

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).

Reserving at the Residenza Ca' Riccio

As we point out above, the Minerva e Nettuno does not offer online booking. To reserve a room, you’ll have to contact the hotel directly by email or telephone (see below).

If you’d like a suggestion for a property that offers similar convenience and a variety of accommodation options (plus the option to book online), read our reviews of the sweet and homey Hotel Bernardi Semenzato or the Ostello Santa Fosca, a basic hostel with a cool historic setting.

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.
