We booked this on booking.com at almost 10 PM. We had walked around Venice and most placed were already booked. We showed up almost a hour later and checked in. The gentleman was very nice and gave us directions to walk to the apartments (about 10 minute away). We were in apartment 5- for two adults and 3 kids. And... More

This hotel's staff tried to pull off such a cheat that I decided to skip the whole hotel. I felt if they think they can behave like that to the customer while they are trying to make the booking, the actual hotel must be under any standards as such a way to cheat the customer is totally unacceptable and tells...

I booked this hotel thinking it would be a great central location. And I was very wrong, we were moved to an apartment instead of a hotel room and the wifi doesn't work which means we have no way to contact our families. We were treated poorly and the man at the reception was rude and unapologetic. I felt like... More

We made a last minute booking for a double ensuite room including breakfast for one night at this hotel, but that is not what we got. When we arrived at the hotel the unfriendly man informed us we would be staying at an apartment at a different location as we had made a last minute booking. We had to go... More

Positives- great location next to the train station, wifi is good, hot showers, friendly staff, clean room, A/C Negatives - our room was very tiny, breakfast was croissants and toast, no satellite tv, no refrigerator.

We were reading the reviews on the train ride from Florence to Venice and we were horrified. Thankfully we didn't experience anything like was stated in some of the reviews. Short walking distance from train station. We were lugging three suitcases. It was fine. Check in took 5 minutes tops. There was a female behind counter and she was very... More

1) When we arrived the guy who was there was completely uninformed. 2) We got a wrong room (a more expensive one) and had to pay the difference at the checkout, even if it was their fault. They said that we won't get our passports back if we don't pay. 3) The staff and the owner of the hotel were... More

We booked the room through booking.com. It was easy to find the place and most comfotable room. Staff is very helpful. Bit noisy during the night but one can accept that as it is not far from the main tourist attraction area. Shower/bathroom is a bit small but is acceptable for Europian standards. Will recommend to anybody.

Ariel Silva which is easily accessible from the bus stop Piazzale Roma (15 min walk) is a decent choice if you - as an urban explorer - just need shelter for the night. Breakfast is included and simple but ok. Your nightly rate should be about 120 euros which leaves you enough money to spend on souveniers and boat trips... More

Things that were good: - Easy to reach from railway station (we arrived late in the evening, so this was important). Ca' d'Oro is nearby, but Venice is tiny and packed with sights, so actually you can skip "location" part in reviews - Room was huge by Venetian standards (we were in separate building across the small "street", not sure...

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.
