We spent four nights at the Al Vagon in September. The hotel is basic but clean and tidy and you can't fault the location right next to a canal just minutes from the Rialto Bridge. To reach our room after check-in we were taken around the corner and through a door off a dead-end passage filled with the Al Vagon... More

From the water taxi drop off area, this place is quite a walk (about 15 minutes )with big luggages with us. You even had to cross a small bridge with stairs to ge to the hotel. It was tricky finding this hotel, but then again, everyone gets lost in Venice! Check in was a breeze. We arrived early so they... More

Not giving the best mark to this hotel only because we had what I believe the smallest room in the hotel. Apart from the size of the room, which had everything one might need and was nicely done, the hotel is a great find for a short stay in Venice. The location gives an opportunity to easily reach the crowded... More

A few minutes away from Ca D'Oro water bus. The room was very small for us since we where three and were given a room for two persons. In fact an extra bed inserted near the door and we couldn't even open the door and wardrobe easily. On the whole it is an average hotel since it doesn't even offer... More

Character hotel and good value, right in the heart of historic Venice, 5 mins from Rialto bridge. Lovely big room (ask for room 4), overlooking the canal, beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean. Lovely Murano glass chandelier and side lights, decent shower room, (quiet loo!). Ancient tiny TV (considering the room size) bit of a disappointment. Loud bells from 7am but as... More

Vert sweet little hotel situated right in the heart of Venice. Tiny room but only used for sleeping so didn't really matter. Canal room a bonus and above a canal side restaurant that looked lovely but also had read it is expensive.. Definitely would return to this little gem.

Easy to get to from the Ca D'Oro vaporreto dock. Good location to all the major sites & our favorite restaurant Tattoria tre Spiedi. Remarkably quiet for how busy the streets are- we did request the canal view. Friendly helpful staff! Clean room, comfortable bed, adequate bathroom. The stairs were quite steep but there is a electric seat that could... More

Ten minute walk from the Ca D'Oro vaporreto dock. Fifteen minutes to St. Mark's square, Good location. We were in the annex above the restaurant with a view to the little canal below. Decent value considering it's Venice. A very good restaurant is nearby: the Trattoria Tre Spiedi has pleasent staff, great food and no coperto charge.

Excellent hotel right in the heart of Venice. Our room had a balcony overlooking a canal. Very quaint. Room was spacious and everything you'd need except an iron. The hotel never had an iron nor did they have any suggestions as to where we could get ironing done. Spoilt things somewhat.

Great central place to stay , near to Rialto bridge and many great restaurants, friendly owner and staff ,small room but very clean and tidy ,would definitely go back. . We stayed over looking the small canal but they have other rooms to the side ,you will be woken up to bells but that is Venice.

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.
