Pension La Calcina
Ponte della Libertà
Family Friendly 3-Star Pension in Restored 17th Century WarehouseLocated inside a restored 17th century limestone warehouse, this delightful little three-star hotel with around 35 rooms, suites and apartments, is close to sights like the Guggenheim Collection, Galleria dell'Accademia and the famous Dei Gesuati church. Located right on the Zattere promenade on the Giudecca canal, it is just a minute's walk from the ferry stop.
There are a number of different room options here, including apartments that can accommodate families. Each room is individually decorated with food floors and antique furnishings, plus modern features like flat-screen TVs and free WiFi, but not all have private bathrooms -- some share, so when booking be sure to book en-suite if you want your own toilet. If you're on a budget and don't care, the shared bath digs are quite good value for Venice.
The free breakfast buffet is a perk, and there is a cozy restaurant, bar and both waterfront and rooftop terraces for summer drinks and sunbathing.
