The overall impression about city itself, house, chosen room and superior hospitality of Mr. Mattia is great. And that is honestly true, as a lot of details were taken into consideration at the time before we even arrive. Old fashion house with smallest details bring you to 18-19th century. Everything is done in a very client friendly atmosphere. Pro's: -... More

Ponte Chiodo is an excellent choice when coming to Venice, we recommended it to all our friends - we have been coming back for about ten years now! It is small and cosy with a lovely garden and most of the rooms have a view on the canal. The rooms are equipped with antique furniture and often even Venetian chandeliers.... More

Had a great stay at Ponte Chiodo from 19 to 21 Nov for our honeymoon trip to Venice. Received a free room upgrade from the kind host - Mattia. He was very friendly to us when we first met and helped to carry my luggage up the stairs to our room at level 3! His warm and welcoming smile made... More

I have no idea why lodgers write anything positive about this inn. Is it only because it is relatively cheap? The proprietor was inhospitable--the worst kind of snob. He derided not only Americans, Chinese, and Southern Italians in what he must have thought was amusing banter on greeting us, but he also insulted my wife with overtly sexist and rude... More

Hello, I am sincerely shocked about this highly offensive review, which doesn't correspond at all to the truth. I honestly don't understand how TripAdvisor could let such a review be published. What has been written is highly prejudicial against my person and to the public image of the guest house Ponte Chiodo. It appears that I am racist towards a... More

Hello, I wish to thank for your prompt review. I wish also to clarify that: 1) my personal opinion is that Venice would need minimum 3 or 4 days to be visited. 2) As regards the check in, if I am not here there is a system which allows the guests to get in and find a mailbox with the... More

This is a very special place where one feels the personal touch and very good care from the owner and the staff. I absolute loved all the tips and info Mattia provided about Venice, including the restaurant list :). He makes you look at the city from different angles and discover things you did not think of before :). This... More

My wife and I returned to 3749 Ponte Chiodo for 8 nights in mid-October 2015, and could not have been happier with our choice. We were last here for a week in 2011. Two things make this place special. The location in the Cannaregio neighbourhood is close enough to walk to most attractions and the main transportation hub at Fondamente... More

We loved our stay at 3749 Ponte Chiodo. It was away from the ridiculous touristy area but close enough to walk to everything. It was a quiet peaceful location.

We spent 4 nights at this very charming guest house in a neighborhood out of the tourist area. When we arrived in the area the young school children were leaving to go home for the evening so we had a happy walk to our accommodation.

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.
