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...

The location is accessible and convenient from the attractions in Venice. The room is simple and nice and it is nicely cleaned. Though the bathroom is shared, it is clean. Breakfast is relatively good. It is simple, with tea/coffee,bread and croissants. It is buffet style, so you don't have to worry not being full. Croissants are good with jam inside.... More

The room looked okay from the photos we saw on line,but the reality was quite different. The double bed took almost all the space, with barely a metre to move around the bed and a wardrobe in one corner. Bathroom was cosy but manageable but the towels were strange,like sheets of bed linen. Breakfast was a non- event, but what... More

Expensive for little room. You will have to get key from one place but walk 15 minutes to find your apartment. Room was clean, but bathroom must be shared with at least 3 families - they don't often cleaned. Only the good part was you can make your won food, and there are super markets on the way to this...

The most unhelpful staff I have ever met in the entire Italy, they have cancelled our reservation 15 minutes before our arrival and they were even so fast to sell the room within those 15 minutes, wow. Of course they had sent an e-mail before the cancellation, but what a surprise, they send it 3 hours before the cancellation when... More

To be honest! I will never get tired to warn people so that they dont go to this Hotel because what they offer you it is not even close to what they have! first they mention that they are close to the main train station and then you arrive there and they send you to another different place and they...

Rude, arrogant, bored staff who have no interest in even pretending to be welcoming to their "hotel", which once you get there you actually get sent to a different building 15 minutes walk away to a really basic, noisy room full of mosquitos...........incredibly disappointing!!!

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.
