Great location, a walking distance from San Marco Piazza and Santa Lucia Station. We asked for a room for 3 and got a big one, with separated rooms for kids. Bathtub was a plus, after our days of walking around the city and all attractions. Breakfast was delicious.

If you know where you are going it is a easy 15 minute walk from the rain station. In fact when in Venice - get out and walk the streets, see the shops, meet the people. The hotel is situated right at the point of a ferry across the canal. And did I fail to say - this hotel is... More

This hotel is a 3 star hotel. The room was very large the furnishing new and old. The bathroom looked nice but was not cleaned well. It had a weird tub shower combo that was very narrow. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was good. It took us 15 minutes to walk to St.Marks square. There mattresses were... More

This was our 3rd visit to Venice and as it was to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary we really wanted a hotel overlooking the Grand Canal. After thoroughly researching many hotels we chose the junior suite at the Foscari Palace. We were not disappointed. The suite was huge, very clean and the view was amazing. We loved to stand on...

My room # 102 was extremely disappointing: The room was dark, the view was on the wall of the next house only 2 m away, the shower was a tiny plastic booth, the vanity mirror was without the glass. This for € 290 per night - I would not go there again.

Situated on the Grand Canal this hotel is perfectly placed for a trip to Venice. A 3 or 4 minute stroll from the Ca D’Ora waterbus landing stage, perfect if you are arriving by train or coach from the airport (remember waterbus no 1). Restaurants and bars abound within very easy walking distance and only a 10 minute stroll to... More

I booked Foscari Palace based on the reviews of people at Trip Advisor, but there is something seriously wrong!!! 1. The hotel is located on the Grand Canal but all rooms do not overlook the Grand Canal! This they do not tell you when you book. Ironically I cancelled my reservation at another hotel, because I was informed by Divna... More

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

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.
