Convenient hotel, not too far from port where we had to go for our cruise trip. Clean, very small room but thats all I paid for, a bed and bathroom. Be aware there is like 15 or more steps just to walk up to reception so may be difficult if you carting around your luggage. They kept my passport and... More

Really close to station and to canals for transport. Long steep flight of stairs up to reception - no lift from ground level, lugging heavy bags was no fun. After check-in another (shorter) flight of steps up to the lift - we did get help with bags for this section. Staff cheerful but advised us badly on trips to take... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in November 2014. It was not our choice, part of a cruise pre-stay package through a travel agency. It was fine, but not great. This is no better than an $80 a night hotel, don't pay more than that. Yes its close to the train station, vaporetto station, some good restaurants and... More

Chose the hotel for its proximity to the station. Perfect for that. Flight of stairs to reception was a surprise initially. Staff started out friendly enough but when things went wrong they failed dismally. Our room had no hot water which we found out when we wanted to shower after our first night. Went to reception, they said they would... More

It is excellent location to the train station and the main water taxi area as well as lots of little shops etc. Massive steep stairs to the reception and then rabbits warren to find the room. The breakfast was very average and I think I only had a yoghurt so wasn't value at all.We felt safe... More

This hotel is very close to the train station and both the 1 and 2 water buses. The room was quite small but we were able to find places for our 2 large suitcases and 2 carry-ons with out tripping on them while in the room. The room was clean, just very dated, and the bathroom was small. The airconditioner... More

Good location - bad choice. We really suffered. We stayed two nights. Couldn't sleep due to heat and mosquitoes. Being from Kolkata, India. .we are used to mosquitoes. .still this was worse. Rooms are dingy and small. Do not book any tours or Gondola rides from the hotel..you always pay a premium. Go to the ferry jetty and book your... More

Venice being rather a small area overall, this hotel is still very comfortably close to the train station, and to the boat transport that goes to the airport and, of course, all over Venice as well. Most difficult was the first flight of stairs to the reception desk and hotel itself - not fun for suitcases or heavy bags ))... More

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.
