Perfect location between Rialto bridge and San Marco Square. We stayed in a room that slept six overlooking the grand canal. It is set back a bit from Grand Canal and the canal view is a bit narrow. A drawback was being over a bar, so there was some noise at night. But we really loved our balcony overlooking the... More

Not for the faint hearted walkers among you! 43 steps to the room..... However, once we got there, it was a lovely big, airy room with views over the canal, gondolas passing by below the window. Very peaceful location. Staff very helpful and polite. Only downside was the breakfast - very basic continental - bread, croissants, cereal, yoghurt etc. Shower... More

I've read many of the comments here. A lot of them seem to confuse this hotel with the B&B that is operated next door. The hotel has a steep stairwell, but is not a problem. I think the hotel management would help with luggage if you ask. They are quite friendly. The room (at least the one we had) was... More

This little hotel could be a gem in the right hands! How did I not know there was NO elevator and that our bathroom was not en suite? The room looked like it was furnished at a second hand store, but it was large, we had a fridge, and is on the Grand Canal. The staff is nice, especially the... More

How to know about the Elevator ? It's easy : you must be able to read ! It's written everywhere online, we have no elevator .. Luckily our guests have never complained about it. About the bathroom, we have 6 bedrooms and each of which has a PRIVATE bathroom. Only 1 room has got the external bathroom (just 1 meter... More

It was difficult for us to find the hotel initially, but it is in a great location being close to the Rialto Bridge. The rooms were huge and we had a view of the Grand Canal. The rooms had very old style windows which pushed open and were a little tricky to shut completely. The bathrooms were tiny but functional.... More

This place met our expectations, as we stayed in the red room and had a view of the Grand Canal. It was exactly like the photo, and minutes from the Rialto Bridge. The location was excellent and the hostess (not the owner) was incredible; so friendly, helpful, thoughtful! Venice hotels are expensive, and this was to be a treat. However,... More

Location absolutely perfect, “everything” is at walking distance. Note on arrival that the alley (calle) is the first one after the ”Fiaschetteria Toscana” (if you come from the Rialto bridge). Once in the alley you follow it and turn to the right, then to the left and then you’ll find Morosini at your right hand (a door in the wall... More

Worst hotel we checked into in our three weeks in Italy. Stayed two hours. No heat, old worn out beds and furniture, no amenities. This is the equivalent of a thirty dollar hotel in the USA. Tried to bill us $185, for the two hour. Demanding a refund from my credit card company. Moved over to Hotel Giorgione which was... More

The hotel is spacious but the bathrooms are tiny. There is no elevator, which made it difficult to get our luggage to our room. The attendant did offer to help but because she was a woman I didn't see how it would be any easier for her. Anyway, the room, while spacious, was a bit dingy and dated. There 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.
