This Hotel is a real find. You get the friendliest of welcomes from all the staff who are happy to help you with recommendations, directions and reservations. The rooms are decorated in venetian style, clean and comfy. We had breakfast on the terrace overlooking the grand canal and Rialto bridge every morning. Matteo the owner cooked us omelettes to order... More

In October of this past year we were iin Italy for a month and the first and foremost memory for both of us was our stay with owner Mateo and staff (hi Alex) at this hotel. The amazing room with windows opening onto the Grand Canal, breakfast cooked to order and eaten in an intimate setting, historic building with traditional... More

This is a small but truly wonderful "palace" hotel within a stones throw of the Rialto bridge on the Grand Canal, you could not wish for a better location. The owner and all the staff are absolutely fabulous, it was our second time back and I am almost not wanting to rave about this place in case it gets booked... More

Lovely big room done in the style of an old palace. Fabulous balcony over the grand canal for breakfast and drinks anytime. Central to Rialto bridge. Nothing is too much problem for the staff, very friendly and attentive and all of them know you by name.

I'm a little late getting my in my review. I couldn't have picked a better place for my teenage daughter and I to stay. From the moment we exited the plane, and stepped in our private water taxi straight to the dock, I was hooked. I read stories about people wandering the streets trying to find their hotel (street maps... More

What an amazing hotel! The owner and all the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. The location is perfect and actually much more than I could have imagined. A stones throw from the Rialto bridge. We could have sat on the terrace all day and night and watch Venetian life pass us by. The bedroom was beautifully... More

Stayed at this wonderful, wonderful hotel for 2 nights as part of my wife's first trip to Italy. Location is breathtaking, overlooking the Grand Canal and being footsteps away from the Rialto Bridge; very convenient for sightseeing and close to all the major attractions, numerous restaurants and shops. Our room on the ground floor, with a terrace on the canal,... More

Just returned from four fabulous days in Venice and had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Al Ponte Antico. I cannot say enough good things about this place.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here for several nights in July. I can honestly say that I have never met a hotel staff more committed to insuring that I had a perfect, high quality stay. Each staff member addressed us by name and diligently looked after our every need. This is a very special, unique hotel... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
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.
