Great location on this hotel, easily accesible via the vaporetto from piaza san marco. Recommended for anyone looking for a simple place to stay that is super well located.

We couldn't have had a better location: less than a 5-minute walk to St. Mark's Square, and the hotel is on a canal with doorstep gondola service. Everything about this hotel is first-class: beautiful, comfortable rooms and amenities, 100% pleasant and helpful staff, and an included free breakfast that was sumptuous. I'd return there in a heart-beat anytime I'd visit Venice again.

This hotel is adorable....it is right behind Piazza San Marco (St Mark's Square) and a short walk from the San Marco water taxi. The staff was very pleasant and the hotel was reasonably priced with breakfast included. The Gondola launch is right in front of the hotel and was definitely worth grabbing a bottle of wine and taking a nice tour through the canals!

Decent Hotel Close to San Marco Square

Pros: Location near San Marco Square is key to this hotel.
Cons: Mattresses.
Location: There is a live theater with performances in English just a few minutes away. Also, many shops, restaurants, gelato shops, bakeries all nearby.
Hotel has old world charm, but there are (at least) two buildings, of which I was not informed when I made the reservation for me and my 18 year-old daughter. The building where we were housed was across the way from the main hotel, a little out of the way for two women travelers. Beds (i.e., mattresses) could have been a bit more comfortable. We did have a small balcony onto a canal.

Expensive Hotel Close to Piazza San Marco

Pros: It was in Venice.
Cons: Breakfast could be much improved!
Location: Half a minute walk to Plaza San Marco. This is the only plus to this hotel.
Perhaps it helps to be an experienced visitor to Venice. I paid what I considered to be A LOT for a room which was described as overlooking the Plaza San Marco. The room overlooked a small deserted plaza with a view of the neighbors window. The room was tiny but clean, it was also across the alley from the lobby so we felt somehow left out of the mainstream hotel. The breakfast was included but was mediocre at best. It is best to arrive early so that items do not run out. Replenishment was slow and sometimes not done at all. After staying for a few nights it became clear that location in Venice is really not important. We could have booked a much cheaper room in a less well known area and received a better room for a reasonable price. The hotel, like all in Venice, was difficult and time consuming to reach. It involved long walks with baggage. Hotel staff did not prepare us AT ALL for this. I would suggest booking a room closer to the main train station to minimize the hassle.

Right in St Marco's Plaza

Pros: RIght in the heart of the tourist district but lovely environment
Cons: Rooms were small - but we were only there to sleep
Location: All the main attractions are right there - just off of St Marco's Plaza - easy to get to everything
Old Venice - right by all the major attractions - only accessible by gondola or by foot, because this is one of the oldest hotels in Venice, rooms are small, but comfortable and lobby has that old world charm. Everything is right outside your door -

Great Location

Hotel Cavalletto is next to San Marco Square where all the action is. You can get on a gondolla just outside the hotel and it is adjacent to the Hard Rock Cafe so you can get some American food (nachos). Staff spoke good English and recommended an excellent Italian (pizza & wine) restaurant that was fabulous. It was like the American version of "Cheers". All the locals ate there which is a good sign. Hotel rooms were clean and the staff initially put us in a smaller room w/a twin bed and we had paid for a room w/ a queen bed. Staff moved us and were very accomodating. I would highly recommend this hotel because of the location and value for the money.

fantastic location

I was lucky enough to hear about this hotel thru my travel agent. The location is FANTASTIC. It is just across the bridge into St Mark's Square (less than a 30 second walk). Hotel is a fabulous deal and the location cannot be beat. The gondola drivers park their gondolas outside the hotel door. Staff was very friendly. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel.
