Lonely Planet review
Upgrade from ordinary seaside resorts to La Calcina, with breezy roof-garden breakfasts, canal-dock restaurant, and panoramas of Palladio's Redentore church across Giudecca Canal. Antique armoires, brocade bedspreads and ship-shape modern bathrooms come standard with airy, parquet-floored guestrooms. Book ahead for waterfront rooms – especially No 2, where John Ruskin wrote his classic (though inexplicably Palladio-bashing) 1876 The Stones of Venice .
Our independent authors have visited Hotel La Calcina and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Sestiere di Dorsoduro.
