We wanted a centrally located budget hotel and the Al Vagon definitely fits the bill! 5mins from the Rialto Bridge and 15-20mins to St. Marks Square and close to shops and restaurants. The room was pretty basic and small but was fine for our purposes, description had said flat screen TV but we just had a small old fashioned TV... More

We stayed here on a four night break in Venice. Centrally located at the end of Nouva Strada and a five minute walk to Rialto its small but comfortable and clean. The room was three bed so plenty of room for two! Bed had large firm mattress but only one thin pillow each which meant it was a bit low... More

The "superior room with canal view" (n°25) matched the description. Not vast but certainly spacious enough. Friendly helpful staff. No breakfast service but plenty of nearby cafés. Ideal location, just 5' on foot from Rialto Bridge and 10' from San Marco. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends. Good WiFi.

Exactly why you come to Venice this is the place to stay! perfect and magical....Room 2 has a balcony overlooking the canal with the gondolas passing below, the church bells ringing and strolling distance to everything....right in the heart beat of this enchanting city....so happy and perfect.

Having recently been recommended hotel al vagon I decided to book a room with canal views for me and my partner. The hotel met all my expectations. It was very clean and romantically decorated. It was worth every extra penny to have a canal view, I loved throwing open the shutters every morning and "letting Venice in". I also loved... More

We have stayed at this hotel twice now! We first stayed for our honeymoon and promised ourselves that we will come back every year! We quite prefer the annex building which is quiet and private! The owner is very accommodating and friendly. The location is central and a short walk from Rialto. We just love this hotel.

Nice old fashion four poster beds. Room was very clean, warm and average size. Better to choose the rooms with canal views. Hotel staff was kind enough to lend me Wellington boots. Wifi was intermittent.

We stayed in a renovated, spacious room at the rear of the building (no reception). The room had a safe, but there was no other equipment besides old, very small TV. The owner and his daughter were extremely nice and helpfull. We had a medical appointment in the room, which we arrived too late and the young girl at the... More

This was our first trip to Venice and Hotel Al Vagon was a perfect introduction. A small hotel in a good/strategic location, we were greeted efficiently, loaned boots for the expected Acqua Alta, and shown to our room. No elevator, but the desk clerk kindly carried my bag up the very steep stairs. We had an upgraded room with a... More

This is a very basic hotel but it does offer private bathrooms and has a TV. We merely used the hotel room for sleeping and it sufficed for that. It has a great location and was exactly what we were looking for. If you are looking for something upscale this is not the place if you are looking for something... 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.
