I chose this hotel because of the unique combination of reasonable price (Venice is expensive!) and central location. However, we realised that we would have done better to go for a slightly higher priced hotel, as the service left much to be desired. The breakfast was very basic and did not give us a flavour of Italy, which we would... More

Despite the very average review and comment on the owner, I found the stay very pleasant, maybe because my friend and myself are both guys :P. The location is perfect, just 5-minute walk from the train station even with luggage. Lots of cheap eats nearby but restaurants with high TA ratings are rare. The guesthouse décor is greenish, simple with... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. Great location. Family run hotel, old but clean. Friendly and helpful. Breakast is simple. Cappuchino is good. Mosquitos kept at bay by hotel supplied repellent. Fan in room but it was still hot time of year. We had private bathroom and room was big enough, overlooking a park. Expensive but reasonable price for Venice... More

This was the first euro hotel my partner and I had stayed at. We were blown away by Venice but at first not so much by al gobbo. We were unaware that passports would be taken and copied at first and seemed to get off on the wrong foot with Alessandro. After this we were excitedly shown our room which... More

I was so happy to arrive in Venice and to get settled into my hotel room after a long day of travel. The manager checked me in and showed me to my room and then would not leave my room. He sat down with me on the bed and had his arm around me. I ducked my head to avoid... More

After a long overnight train trip from Paris to Venice, we walked from the train station to the hotel easily. We had booked the triple room, which had a private bath, and it was crazy hot outside. The hotel decor wasn't elaborate, but really not much different than anywhere else we stayed during most of our three week trip through... More

The Al Gobbo is a very decent small hotel located on a fairly noisy piazza five minutes from the Venice Santa Lucia train station. The breakfast at Al Gobbo left much to be desired, and as I said, the piazza was noisy. There was no air conditioning in our room, so had it been hot when we were there instead... More

The reason why I booked this hotel is, firstly, the location. The Santa Lucia Stazione is just 5 minutes walk from the hotel and you can also catch the Vaporetto nearby. Secondly, the price is quite reasonable. Here are my reasons why I gave this hotel a terrible review. Room - very small, just enough space to put your luggage.... More

It was late at night when my friend and I, two girls in our early twenties, found this hotel and decided to take it so we could get some sleep. The receptionist / owner Alessandro was there and at first his friendliness and discount on our room was a relief. Then his friendliness started to cross a line and his... More

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.
