Venice Kayak can’t organise accommodation for your stay in Venice, but we can give you some useful indications.
We use the Certosa island as our operation base and all trips will depart from there unless otherwise agreed.
Accommodation on the Certosa Island
Certosa Hotel ★★★
The Certosa Hotel is a small hotel located on the same island where Venice Kayak is based. It is the optimal place to stay if you’re in Venice for kayaking, especially if you’re doing an evening tour.
The hotel is modern and pleasant, with seven double rooms and eleven single rooms, at very competitive prices. Many rooms have great lagoon views.
On the ground floor is a bar and a restaurant, both with ample outdoor serving areas in the summer.
The skipper Marino also offers sailing tours, of both shorter and longer duration, around the lagoon of Venice.
Accomodation in Venice city
All of the simple but spacious, clean, and comfortable rooms have a private bathroom with shower, hairdryer, direct-dial telephone, minibar, colour TV, air conditioning, independent heating, and safe. Many of the rooms have satellite TV as well.

The B&B San Marco is located near the Scuola di San Giorgio dei Schiavoni in the central part of the Sestiere Castello, within easy walking distance from the Arsenale vaporetto stop and close the San Marco area.

Along the B&B there are also a few rental apartments, which sleeps from 3-4 persons up to 9-10 persons for the largest.
The apartments are rented on a weekly basis, while stays in the B&B can be as short as one day.
Ca’ Bella is a family-run B&B, a colourful traditional Venetian home with a private courtyard. It is situated at short walking distance to the Rialto bridge and Piazza S.Marco, hugged by a quiet canal with private docking.

It’s near the main waterbus station “Fondamente Nove”, which makes arrival very easy.
