We loved this hotel. The location was great. Very nice in the morning when the market vendors opened up. The room was clean. The shower was small but where in Italy isn't the shower small. I recommend it highly! Front desk staff was great. We didn't have a reservation and just walked up. We loked being off the beaten path.... More

This hotel does have a good location, but there were negatives. I too found the lack of separation between the shower area and the rest of the bathroom unsatisfactory. More importantly, I am critical of the behavior of the reception staff, who caused me to miss a pre-booked tour from St Marks Square on the afternoon of arrival. I arrived... More

The location was fantastic. We arrived at the train station and took the waterbus two stops and then a very short walk (easy to find) to the hotel. When we left the hotel two days later we walked back to the train station. It really is close enough to walk even if you're dragging a bag or two. The area... More

Micale, our hotel receptionist, was very helpful and she spoke English. The other receptionists don't speak as much English. The hotel was very clean and comfortable with one important drawback. Don't take room number 305, which was our room. It does not have a decent shower or even a shower curtain. Our friends stayed in room number 107 and had... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights with my wife and kid. The location was good walking distance to station and vaporetti stop. And since its located on main street its very easy to find. There is a pizzeria right in front of it where one can have their meal. The room and bathroom was spacious. However there was... More

Stayed at the Hotel La Forcola 4 nights during our trip to the Venice region. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Staff was nice enough, but not overly friendly. The room we stayed in was small, but we were still able to move around quite well. We requested a balcony and recieved one on the canal side. The bathroom... More

We have stayed at this hotel twice; once in 2002 and once in 2004. The rooms are standard with nice bathrooms. Some of the rooms overlook a small courtyard while others overlook a small canal. The building dates back to the early 1500's and was renovated in the late 1990's. The breakfast leaves much to be desires but since Venice... More

La Forcola is in a great location. We arrived by train and could easily walk with our luggage. Fortunately for us the bridges we had to cross were small or had a ramp. There are stores, restaurants and supermarkets close by. In the hotel, we found the staff to be helpful and the room was clean. However as mentioned by... More

Venice was our first time out of the U.S. so we didn't know what we should expect in a hotel room. However, we loved this hotel. The room was definitley small (we only had a bed and table in our room), but we had a balcony and it added to the ambiance. It really felt like part of the Venice... More

La Forcola is in an excellent position. Ten minutes from the railway station, three minutes from a water bus stop and in the middle of a busy street which has lots of interesting shops, bars and restaurants. On arrival at the hotel, my friend and I were shown to a double room even though we had booked a twin room.... 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.
