good location, lovely staff, wonderful coffee. Room was very clean with a great shower and a smoking area outside in a secure place. No safe in room although reception staff are happy to help and place valuables (passports etc.) in the hotel safe.

We arrived in Venice, excited to begin exploring the city. The front desk staff was very friendly and welcomed us to our room. We were very disappointed when we entered the ground level room that was extremely cramped and very warm, but figured, we'd manage since we would only be sleeping there for one night. After a full afternoon and... More

The staff thoughtout our stay was very friendly, helped in finding good local places to eat and answered other questions. the room was ok, good quality for... More

The rooms and washroom was clean. Beds were comfortable. Not so much noise! Beautifully decorated interior! Classic venetian decor. The only thing is that the reception is not open for check in until the afternoon. Very close to train station Venezia Santa Lucia. Shops and eateries are walking distance.

Stayed here in a triple room in September 2011. Very near the main station. Was here for a night only. There was no elevator so had to lug all our luggage up to the room. The other 2 persons were seniors so had to lug all the stuff myself. The hotel was on an open smelly drain with the entry... More

Stayed here for three nights. Great location - once you can find it. Rooms pretty small. A little loud at night. Bathroom clean and nice. Nice free breakfast. Staff members very helpful and nice. Would definitely recommend it as a short stay in Venice.

Great little hotel. Rooms are small but spotless and well equipped. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Few steps to the Grand Canal and loads of bars, shops and restaurants. Close to the mainline station and water taxis. Good choice of breakfast, again with lovely staff. Would definitely stay again.

Night porter seemed a bit grumpy at getting woken up, but showed us to our room which was... 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.
