Having opened in 1308, the Cavalletto & Doge Orselo is one of the oldest hotels on Venice Island. Located no more than 20 steps (!) from St Marks Square (the hub of Venice), the hotel overlooks a canal and has its own mooring for gondalas and watertaxis; perfect for those guests wishing to arrive and travel around Venice in style. A traditional 4 star propery with pleasant public areas, a bar and dining room, the hotel`s amenities are complemented by the friendly, courteous and helpful reception staff who are always on hand to ensure guests experience the best in Venice. The Cavalletto`s rooms have been furnished in keeping with Venetian styles and, as one would expect in a building of this age, rooms are all shapes and sizes. A american-style buffet breakfast is available to all guests and can be enjoyed in the dining room overlooking the canal.
