Not for fans of clean-lined minimalism, the interiors here are an explosion of antique furniture and sumptuous surface decoration — think striped silk, thick pile velvet and heavy damask. Each room is unique. The Sala del Doge is decked out entirely in crimson brocade, with a chandelier dripping in Murano glass; the Sala Noir is an inky boudoir with wrought iron lamps. The reception and lounge are similarly extravagant, with a roaring fireplace, marabou lampshades and etchings of Venice’s historic doges.
Bed and Bath
The rooms are split into three categories, with two Suites on the top floor, five quirky Concept Rooms and five Deluxe Rooms of varying size and hue. The pillows are plump and numerous, and the mattresses soft. The toiletries aren’t anything to write home about, and bathrooms in the Deluxe Rooms are small and functional, with so-so water pressure. However, they have great whirlpool baths.
This is a small hotel, so it’s not overendowed with amenities. There’s a large breakfast room, but most guests prefer to take their fresh fruit, cereals, eggs, bacon and coffee (very good coffee, in fact) in bed. There’s a room service menu with perfectly good sandwiches and salads — but really, with so many great restaurants nearby, you’re advised to be adventurous. There is also a rooftop bar, decorated in a rich Moroccan style, which is glorious for sundowners or nightcaps.
How to Get There
We arrived in the hotel about lunchtime and were greeted very friendly by the hotel reception. We immediately got our keys and got to our rooms. Our room was amazing. Such a comfortable place to be, which made us feel like we're at home.
Our bathroom looked super modern and had a nice view onto the city.
The hotel service was very nice and were always there for us when needed.
The next day we ordered breakfast and were surprised by the beauty of it. Everything we ordered was fresh and delicious. We had our breakfast on a terrace up on the roof, which made it even better.
From the hotel you can walk to every location easily. All the hotspots in Venice were nearby.
I would definitely go back to Ca Maria Adele. It made our stay in Venice perfect.
My wife and I stayed here for three nights as part of a 20 year wedding anniversary celebration. To mark the occasion I booked us the Mini Palace. We arrived in style via water taxi that can dock right at the front door of the hotel. We were immediately warmly greeted by staff who assisted us out of the boat and with our luggage. The lobby area while small, can be considered intimate and is nicely decorated. Check-in was a breeze and after which we were directed to the adjacent lounge area for a quick drink and nibble while our room and bags were ready.
The mini palace is located about a 1 minute walk away from the main building. It provides all the luxury accommodation that the main building has along with more room and privacy. The mini palace is three levels with the main having a sitting area with a door that opens directly onto the canal. There is a small kitchen area as well a bathroom/shower on this level. The second level has the bedroom and the main bathroom. Of course the top level is the bonus aspect with the terrace. The only issue I had with the accommodations were the towels which I found to be a bit thin and worn for the mini palace and the accompanying rate.
It must be noted that there is currently extensive renovation work being conducted on the building next to the mini palace that will eliminate any possible view of the grand canal from the terrace. Having said that, while it is aesthetically off-putting, it did not in any way affect our enjoyment of the mini palace. We did not encounter any disruptive noise.
Breakfast cane enjoyed either on the terrace at the main hotel or in the indoor breakfast area. Service was excellent and the food selection was superb and tasted great.
The location is excellent as well. Just a one minute walk to the Salute vaporetto stop which is a 2-3 minute trip from St. Mark's Square. It is a very quiet location and we did not have any safety concerns walking around the area at nigh time.
The front desk staff (and all the staff for that matter) were knowledgable, professional and attentive. Overall it was a fabulous experience and I would certainly recommend staying here while in Venice.
Stayed for four nights for our one year wedding anniversary - The hotel is called "Just beautiful" by Vogue and it is on all aspects. The staff is incredible nice and friendly and very very serviceminded. Great breakfast can be enjoyed at their terrace! Location is super and away from the busy areas with too many tourists. Water taxi just 40 meters from the hotel. If we come back to Venice this would be our choice again.
Right from the moment we arrived by water taxi the service was spot on. Greeted canal side by two staff we were quickly assisted into the hotel & check in was thorough.
Seated in the lounge & greeted with drinks & snacks we also met the two owners who were also very helpful.
My husband had surprised me for our 20th wedding anniversary by booking us into the mini palace suite for our 3 nights in Venice. This unit is separate from the hotel but still close by.
Loved all the amenities in the mini palace not to mention the location & the rooftop terrace. The weather cooperated for two of our nights there & we thoroughly enjoyed relaxing on the terrace after a good stroll back from dinner.
The location of this hotel is superb but I loved how quiet it was at night time by not facing the grand canal.
Vaporetta service is handy but walking is the best way to see so much more.
Breakfasts in the dining room & on the hotel terrace is superb! Selection, quality & quantity were perfect. Service on all 3 days was great.
Enjoyed the honour bar set up although I think charging for pop to go with our rum drinks was a bit cheeky.
All in all can’t fault this hotel. It was a perfect stay & I would definitely recommend Ca Maria Adele to everyone.
We stayed at Ca' Maria Adele for 4 days/3 nights and it was very much a highlight of our two week Europe trip. The staff are friendly, very helpful, flexible and kind. They will do anything they can to assist you with your request or need. The rooms are clean and the housekeeping staff are very thorough when they make up the room. The location couldn't be better - we were away from the crowds when we wanted to be and very close to the gondola service to get across the canal. We used their transfer service from the airport to the hotel both ways and it was very easy. We also booked their 30-minute gondola excursion and while it was quite pricey, it was a delightful experience. All of their recommendations for food were 5-star/A+. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We will definitely be back and will highly recommend Ca' Maria Adele to all our family and friends.
