This hotel provides great flexibility for families who want the experience of luxury in a restored palazzo, but with rooms that can accommodate children. We stayed in a two level room that overlooks the canal. It has a sitting/sleeping area where beds can be added on the upper level for children. The bathroom is also located on the upper level...

The Palazzo Abadessa has been lovingly and painstakingly been restored. It has the atmosphere of Mystery and Romance while making one comfortable at the same time. The staff are helpful and extremely patient in guiding guests with directions on the maps of Venice island, provided by the hotel itself. The hotel is a 5-7 minutes walk away from the vaporetto...

My wife and I prefer older style hotels such as this with character, charm, friendly staff, beautiful rooms, quiet locations etc. The preceding reviews say it all really and whilst another positive review may make little difference I felt the owners and staff fully deserve another ringing endorsement of their wonderful hotel. The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly and... More

From the minute you arrive to a warm and charming welcome you realise you have made a great choice for your stay in Venice. The decoration of the hotel is within keeping with some stunning Morano glass chandeliers, it is spotlessly clean and the staff are efficient and friendly. The garden is beautiful and if the weather allows a lovely,... More

You walk back in time when you stay at this oasis. A property that fulfills your dream of staying in a historic place that has preserved the history but also provides modern amenities. It is situated on a small canal within easy walking distance of a Grand Canal vaparetto stop. We received excellent service and the breakfast was the best... More

We were very happy when we got there and saw the overall quality and true Venetian atmosphere. Above and beyond to make us happy without any indication from our side the staff was eager to please at every corner and took real pleasure in their jobs. The breakfast was the only thing which did not make our heart fly. But... More

The hotel and staff were attentive and always made themselves available. This made up for what was an otherwise underwhelming trip to Venice where the lasting impression was poor quality and overpriced cuisine with none of the legendary table service I'd understood the italians are somewhat renowned for. So with these elements of the holiday leaving us a little disappointing... More

Situated close enough to walk everywhere without being on the tourist trail. Easy access from the airport by boat, or just 4 stops from the train station by water taxi (without having to carry luggage over any bridges). Easy to make your own way to Murano and Burano without a "guide". This hotels address makes getting around simple for the... More

Nothing but superlatives for this wonderful Palazzo,staff were a joy from the minute that we arrived.Position is perfect for all sightseeing but far enough removed from the maddening crowd to enjoy some peace and tranquility....

This hotel is great. The room are filled up with antiquities. It's an old renaissance palace transformed in hotel. Beautiful garden outside. Great and gentle service. Great location. It really give you the feeling of living in Venice. Highly recommend.

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.
