fabulous hotel, right on the Grand Canal, good breakfast and the view from the dining room looks over looks the canal, although its a bit unusual to see hearses floating past. Only a short walk to the Rialto bridge, bit further to St Marks Square and the Doge palace to which you should pay. Unless your loaded don't drink or... More

I did not stay in this hotel but I took a water taxi from the back of this hotel. I am staying in Amadeus which in just opposite of HP. I guess they belong to the same group. Very nice setting, near to the station and canal.

Yes it's typical over the top Italian gaudy decor with an immaculately dressed staff who at first give the impression that you might be getting in their way, but try your very limited Italian on them and your on the way to winning them over, it's our third time here and this time we had the honeymoon balcony suite on...

We stayed in a suite overlooking the Grand Canal (room 128) which was fantastic. The views were outstanding from either of the TWO balconies and because the area below the balcony was the hotel terrace there was also little outside noise apart from the boats passing and the gentle lap of the water. The suite consisted of a living area... More

This will not be a long review.. After wasting some time researching for a hotel we decided to book Hotel Principe, which looked fine for us. When we got to the hotel we were sent to another hotel, Hotel Amadeus, which is very near but certainly not as good, especially the location and views. We felt very disappointed with this... More

Hotel Principe was a hotel included as part of a Trafalgar tour that included Venice. The location of the hotel near the train station and on the Grand Canal was excellent, regardless of whether or not a tour is involved. Anything that can shorten the distance you have to haul your luggage is a plus. This hotel has a maze... More

Lovely setting, one of the most delicious breakfasts complete with fresh fruit, cheeses, breads, etc...It is so worth it to request a room on the canal with the balcony. Located in a perfect spot - very convenient to the train station

a fantastic hotel,very friendly staff.The rooms are little small if you book economy but the breakfast is one of the best we ever had. Keep in mind the hotel is little out of the centre of Venice as the transfers and path ways like a one way street,so the hotel is at the beginning,but it helps very much when you... More

We stayed at Hotel principe Venice in March 2015 as part of our Italy trip. Yes this place is away from the central areas of venice - however this is very close from the train station (walking distance) and closer from the bus station thus saving you from pulling your luggage all along. Central areas and main square is a... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in March. It was lovely to be delivered by taxi launch directly to the hotel boat dock at the back doors. Well worth paying for a shared boat taxi. The reception staff were a bit offhand but efficient. We asked for a canal view room but none were available. We were told there probably... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
