Very nice and clean Venetian style hotel and excellent staff who were very friendly and understanding. Located at a good place, little away from main streets but having all requirements nearby including a supermarket open till 11 pm in the night.

Everything about the hotel is exceptional and we had a truly perfect stay. Darwin and the staff were superb and nothing was too much trouble - every task was performed with a smile. We arrived by water taxi to the front door and were warmly greeted by Darwin and quickly shown to our beautiful room on the 2nd floor, a... More

Our stay at the Abadessa was perfect in every way, from the gracious greeting by Darwin upon our arrival to the fond farewell upon our departure. From the momentous we stepped off the water taxi, our family of four was made to feel at home at this wonderfully relaxing palazzo. Our rooms facing the garden were spacious and quiet. It's... More

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Palazzo Abadessa for 5 nights and can't fault the service by the manager, Darwin, and his staff who took great care of us and gave directions whenever we needed them (which was quite often Venetian streets are like rabbits warrens!) as a hint, the in house breakfasts are really filling and will set...

Our travel agent arranged Abadessa and it was an incredible stay. It was kind like we were staying in a hotel museum. It is in an area away from the commotion so rest will be well, but very walkable to the Grand Canal and the lower part of Venice. The hospitality of the staff was great and very accommodative. I...

Sometimes the reviews of a hotel seem too good to be true, but this isn't one of those times. My wife and I stayed three nights, and from the moment we stepped off the water taxi on to the Palazzo Abadessa's private dock to the moment we left, we were in hotel heaven. The small team of staff we friendly... More

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. Darwin and Matteo answered several emails promptly and patiently before I made my booking. They arranged a water taxi pick up for us that delivered us right to the hotels private dock. They held our bags as the room was not ready (we arrived in the morning) and let us enjoy a... More

For those who want to be close to the action including the sights and restaurants but have a peaceful refuge from the heat and crowds, then this hotel will suit. It is an old palazzo with its own canal access so arrive in style by water taxi if you can. Others have mentioned the garden and it really is a... More

This hotel is about two minutes off the beaten path (Str. Nuova) down a small alley. About a 20 minute stroll from the train station, but a slog over about 5 bridges with luggage - take the vaporetto to Ca' d'Oro - about a 4 minute walk from there. The service here is outstanding; we were treated like long lost... More

This little 15 bed hotel does B&B. An original 16th century aristocratic home lovingly restored, decorated and furnished in period, both the bedrooms and the general areas. The breakfast is help yourself continental with excellent pastries, meat, bread, etc and I had the best cappucino I have ever had- and I have had a few. Breakfast is in the hallway... 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.
