Pensione Seguso photo

The Pensione Seguso is a two-star hotel for Venetophiles who love tradition. It's cozy and old-fashioned, with antique furniture and an atmosphere that probably hasn't changed much since a British diplomat converted the 16th Century building into a hotel before World War I.

Bathrooms are down the hall, so stay elsewhere if you can't live without your own WC.

How to reach Pensione Seguso from the Zattere airport-boat stop:

Pensione Seguso map directions

  1. As you leave the Alilaguna Linea Blu floating boat pier, turn right and walk a short distance along the Giudecca Canal waterfront.

  2. In less than a minute, you'll see the Hotel Calcina on your left, a restaurant terrace on your right, and a stone bridge up ahead. The Pensione Seguso is just around the corner before the bridge, facing the Giudecca Canal behind a small square.
