We absolutely loved this hotel. We last went to Venice on our honeymoon 15 years ago (and stayed in the Hotel Rialto) and this time we had our 3 children in tow. To be clear, in the UK this would probably be a good three star hotel. And for what you pay you could get a decent-ish 5 star hotel... More

This was our first time to Venice. I had been a bit frustrated about the infrastructure and also had problems finding a great hotel. Hotel Foscari Palace is great. The staff is great, rooms are good and some of the rooms are huge (we had one room for four persons - we could have stayed 15 in the room). The... More

Great room overlooking Grand Canal. Clean room, although the jacuzzi bath didn't work. Breakfast was fairly disappointing. Staff quite glum and monosyllabic which was a shame. You need to go further afield to eat in the evenings as the surrounding environs aren't full of nice eateries, but that's ok.

Had dinner at this hotel. Great meal and very good selection. Special meals can be eaten on roof top area or on water level balcony. Great experience and would do it again, they also have a special dinner+river cruise, this was a great experience for only 40 euro per person. 4 course meal and cruise was for over an hour.

We stayed here in early July 2015 on a family vacation and had a great experience. The hotel itself is very nice, front desk staff are courteous and helpful, the rooms are modern and clean and actually quite large by European standards, and the location put us only steps away from a vaparetto stop. Within a short walk are lots... More

Great location, out of the crowds but an easy walk away from the things you want to see. Found eating in the immediate vicinity to be a little poor and would probably travel for this. Likewise our room was on a lower floor and on an alley that got a little noisy in the morning. The bed was comfortable and... More

This hotel is very well located and the rooms are massive! Breakfast is ok- not a brilliant spread but nice enough and the hotel staff are all really friendly. The hotel itself is quite dated and the bathroom was very small and not very clean. The views are brilliant and one of the best thing about this hotel is the... More

Very nice rooms, grat breakfast and Devina at the front desk is so helpful. The rooftop terrace has nice views and the hotel is handy to everything we wanted to do We would highly recommend the Foscari and truly enjoyed our stay

A lovely, clean and comfortable hotel. The superior room was large with a king sized bed and its own outdoor seating area with table, chairs and sun umbrella. The staff were friendly and breakfast excellent with a good choice of meats, cheeses, fresh fruit and cakes. A hot selection of food was also available. The hotel has a Grand Canal... More

I loved this hotel. The interior is beautiful, and the hotel is close to restaurants and nightlife. I also enjoyed that it was not right next to the busy area of the Rialto Bridge and Piazza San Marco. The staff was friendly and helpful. The terrace view of the canal was so enjoyable. I would definitely stay here again.

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.
