Booked for two nights and really enjoyed the location away from the buzz! Luciano was a great as was the girls who were very accommodating given my husband had suffered some nerve damage to his neck prior to arriving in Venice. Room was very clean and comfortable.

We booked this hotel through a travel website. The team at Ca fontanea responded promptly to our queries over the mail. They also provided a detailed map n directions to reach the hotel which was very helpful. The hotel is located away from the crowded part of Venice. It took us about 45 mins to walk to grand canal.

PROs: ROOMS: Large rooms for Europe, and especially for Venice. Adequate Bathroom space, good hot water, good cooling (once the proprietor enabled it). LOCATION: In a real neighborhood of real Venetians, off the tourist path, with nice neighborhood bars and restaurants and 3 relatively close vaporetti stops. Still, only a 10 minute walk to the main tourist drag between the... More

Ca' Fontanea is an excellent comfortable, no-frills guest house. The bed, linen, towels and bathroom were all of a high standard and the entire place was as clean as a new pin. The location is a 3-5 min walk of the main pedestrian areas of Venice which makes it perfect for easy access but ensures a restful night's sleep. Breakfast... More

This hotel and its very friendly atmosphere were a major reason why we enjoyed our stay in Venice very much. Ca' Fontanea is located in a very quiet neighborhood. At the same time, the hotel is within walking distance from some nice restaurants as well as the train station and Piazzale Roma. The rooms are spacious, clean, and cozy -... More

My review is a bit biased because we booked, and paid for, a standard double room, but due to a pipe burst we were moved into their apartment room instead. The apartment was amazing! Romantic wood beam ceiling and white linens on a comfy bed. Kitchen which allowed us to prepare our own breakfasts and happy hour each day to... More

Ca Fontanea was perfect for our Venice stay. It was easy to take a water bus into the more sight seeing parts of town as this is a more northwest or western part of Venice but it doesn't really matter unless you want to be right in the middle of everything which we did not. Lucio did me a giant... More

At breakfast on one of our four mornings at this lovely hotel we overheard an American lady complaining bitterly to her companion how far out of the hotel was from the main attractions. She had missed the point entirely. This is exactly why one would want to stay here. Situated down a quiet alley, surrounded by lovely old private houses,... More

I stayed for 3 nights, my parents for 7 and were impressed with this hotel/B&B. It was a 5 min walk along a pretty, quiet canal from the Alilaguna/Vaporetto stop Guglia. Only one bridge with steps from the canal stop, so no problem with luggage. The hotel is down the last little alley before you reach the University buildings. Communication... More

Quiet location in a small courtyard about 15 minutes walk from Santa Lucia railway station, 20 minutes from the Piazzale Roma bus station and a few minutes from Crea water bus stop. Nice welcome from Lucio who showed us to our large, spotlessly clean air conditioned room. Comfortable bed with good linen and extra pillow. Bathroom rather small but powerful... 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.
