With its pink façade rising majestically above the Grand Canal, Ca’Sagredo, a 14th-century noble residence turned five-star hotel, is hard to miss. This unique property offers a chance to experience Venice’s rich history firsthand. Step off the boat at the property’s very own vaporetto stop and into the marble entrance, which has welcomed distinguished Venetian nobility for centuries, and you’ll be greeted by a grand staircase, ornate chandeliers and museum-worthy antiques.
Bed and Bath
You could take the elevator to your room, but climbing the grand staircase and admiring the hand-painted frescoes on the walls is a far more enticing option. All 42 rooms and suites define Old World elegance, offering such ornate touches as plush dressing areas, gilded headboards and antique furnishings. Like Venice itself, the rooms have an unmistakable air of romance. The decor is elegant without being stuffy, ancient but full of luxurious upgrades — in short, Venice for the modern traveler.
Days begin with an elegant breakfast buffet, opera playing softly in the background. After a day of exploring the city on foot, a refreshing cocktail in the Incontro bar might be in order. Anyone with a serious interest in food should request the tasting menu at L’Alcova, the ground-floor restaurant overlooking the Grand Canal, which serves up dishes with ingredients from Venice’s own lagoon. Ca’Sagredo grants you a window into the lives of Venetian nobles. Step onto the ornate stone balconies to take in the very same Grand Canal views the Sagredos once saw. You’ll walk the same marble floors, feast beneath the same dramatic frescoes and admire the same sculptures as the privileged nobles who came before. You could get used to this.
In the Area
Even the ride from the airport feels like sightseeing when you board a water taxi, which will bring you through various small canals to the private entrance of Ca’Sagredo. Gain another perspective on Venice by climbing to the top of the campanile in the Piazza San Marco to gaze out over the red rooftops. Wander through the Rialto fish market early in the morning to watch chefs and locals bargain for seafood and produce. Taste dishes from executive chef Michele Potenza, cooking in back-to-nature style with local products such as lagoon clams.
How to Get There
We enjoyed 4 nights at this beautiful hotel. Our room was comfortable and spacious, but unfortunately looked over a small internal courtyard so it was a bit dark - - but you get what you pay for! The public areas of the hotel had amazing views over the Grand Canal, and there was a little ferry right there that takes you straight over to the Rialto Markets for 2 euros a person. The hotel was also a part of the Biennale, with exhibits in the hotel and attached externally to the hotel - Just AMAZING!!! We loved breakfast, we loved the location - 10 mins walk to Rialto Bridge. Great restaurants nearby. Walking distance to railway station (get a porter to wheel your luggage from the station to the hotel while you walk- easier that doing it yourself, and a couple of hundred euros cheaper than a water taxi!) If you do want a water taxi - they can pick you up and drop you off right at the hotel. SO much atmosphere and history in this lovely place, please stay here.
This hotel is everything that you see. It is right on the water, close enough to walk to many of the sites and have access to shopping and restaurants. The staff was super friendly. It is a neatly preserved, historic building. The continental breakfast made you feel like royalty. We would definitely stay here again.
I was impressed by the Gorgeous Venetian decor- you really feel like in a museum! Impeccable service. Enjoyed freshly squeezed juices at breakfast. The room was very quiet and one would never say that the hotel is in the heart of Venice.
Roof top bar is impressive as well.
Outstanding hotel on the canal which used to be a palace for the Segredo family. It was probably the nicest hotel I've ever stayed at in my life, and that includes multiple Four Seasons around the world and many great hotels in Europe, Hawaii etc. It has opulent design and the stairwell to the second floor has frescoes and other art that look like a museum. The customer service is truly outstanding: very congenial down to earth staff that helped us with dinner and other advice. One thing also: they have a great rooftop bar on the 4th floor that has great views of the city and the canal. Great for an appreritivo before dinner. The bathroom was very modern and the AC was very good and it was kind of a magical experience. Also, it is super close to the Ca D'Oro stop on the water bus and of course the water taxi can pick you up at the door to go wherever. Highly recommend.
This is one of my favourite hotels in the world. It is a beautiful building, rooms are amazing and if you are lucky enough to have a canal view - what can I say ❤️.
Love this place in the winter ... truly amazing place
