La Calcina

Zattere, Dorsoduro 780, Venice, Veneto, 30123, Italy

Time-burnished and elegant rooms with parquet floors, original 19th-century furniture, and firm beds enjoy an enviable position along the sunny Zattere, with front rooms offering vistas across the wide Giudecca Canal; a few have private terraces. The hotel has been host to an array of notables, including art critic John Ruskin, who may have been attracted to the reasonable prices. A variety of apartments is also available. You can reserve the rooftop altana (wooden terrace) for sunbathing or a private retreat, or enjoy an afternoon tea in one of the lounge's quiet corners with flickering candlelight.

PROS

  • panoramic views from some rooms
  • elegant, historic atmosphere

CONS

  • not for travelers who prefer ultramodern surroundings
  • no elevator
  • rooms with views are appreciably more expensive
