Our initial reaction to Foscari was impressive. The location, service and décor was top notch. However, this was only the first night. During the morning of our second day, I notices some ants on a night stand and in the bathroom. We were on the second European floor. I thought that it was a little strange to have ants at... More

We stayed in Venice for 2 nights. I called the hotel in advance to book directly with them as we were going for my partner's birthday. I spoke to a lovely lady called Divna who was very helpful and arranged a lovely room for us overlooking the canal and gave us a free upgrade to a suite for the second... More

When I booked this hotel I didn't realise how great the location is so what a lovely surprise we had when we opened the doors onto the little jetty where you can sit and watch the world go by.... And the view from the roof terrace is fantastic, morning and evening. So I can forgive the hotel for having a... More

I booked this hotel as a birthday treat for first time visit to Venice. We had a superior room on the third floor with balcony and view over Grand Canal and gondola station below. Really can't fault anything about the hotel for the price paid. The room was large and comfortable as was the bathroom. The staff were all very... More

We stayed at this hotel 4 nights in February 2015. Hotel is situated 15 minutes walking from the main square and surrounded by various restaurants (including McDonald). From the hotel you can cross the Grand Canal on Gondola (taxi version) for 2€ and you will arrive to the seafood market. Another great thing is the rooftop terrace where you can... More

We had 4 nights at Foscari. We were in room 201, which meant that we had a second floor balcony that opened up directly over the Grand Canal. There is a vibrant fruit/veg and seafood market directly across the canal, with a gondola service outside the front door happy to take you across for 2 euro. Location is fantastic, rooms... More

We were here for 5 nights. Many of the negatives in previous reviews seem to be about staff. We had little to do with staff but those we dealt with were fine. The hotel's strengths are its location, suitably plush interiors and, especially, the jetty on the canal side, where you can sit and watch the world go by on... More

This is a beautiful hotel right on the edge of the Grand Canal. The staff are without doubt the friendliest and most helpful I have ever had the pleasure of needing help from. When my wife lost her hand bag they rang all the places they could to help (we found it as it was handed in to the police,... More

Perfectly located in the centre of Venice. It took us 20 minute by walk from the bus stop which I recommend rather than taking a water taxi. Hotel staff was very friendly and room was awesome, we stayed on the 3rd floor and view of the canal was amazing but nothing beats the view from the roof terrace which on... 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.
