“Good budget hotel in great locatio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

First thing to know about this hotel is that you have to check-in not here but at Hotel Leonardo (Calle della Masena, 1385, 30121 Cannaregio). Then this is a short walk to a small alley off Fondamenta Misericordia.
For me Cannaregio is the best area of Venice, relatively free of tourists and real Venetians frequent the ample great bars and restaurants here. It is close to vaporetto stops Guglie (closest to Hotel Leonardo) and Madonna del orto. Hotel was clean and the room a decent size, good bed and shower. It was very very quiet (we kept over-sleeping!). Internet is only available sat outside the office on a bench in the courtyard - ok if you only want to check email a couple of times a day. No breakfast but lots of bars around and Maier in Jewish Ghetto 2 mins away has nice cakes and coffee. No complaints at all and for the price and location v good indeed. This is quite a walk to San Marco/Rialto (who wants to visit this tourist hell too often though?!) or Dorsodoro, but you can get the vaporetto there. Would definitely stay again.

This hotel is situated in a quieter part of Venice and while its position at the back of a courtyard makes it a little bit difficult to find, it is also very quiet. Also the area has quite a lot of nice restaurants. The room was simple but very clean. The staff is only around in the morning: if you arrive later in the day, you will have to check in at a different hotel. Breakfast is a little bit basic, so if it is not included, you may be better off visiting one of the cafe in the nearby ghetto.

Antica Raffineria is an adequate B&B in the Canneregio district. The room is clean if a little basic, with a reasonable shower room. The bed was rather uncomfortable and there was only one pillow each, but for the price it was OK.

The staff were friendly and the room was clean. The location was very calm. 20 minutes by foot to Rialto and 30 minutes to St Mark's SquareTheres some canal and several bridges right next to the hotel. Looks pretty and very Venice. Perfect hotel would recommend to anyone especially beause the price was so good.

We finally find this BB but it was closed and the office were dark and empty. After a number of phone calls a very nice men came and explained that check in should be done at another hotel in the neighbourhood. Ok- a bad start but the room was large and clean as well as the bathroom.
Antica Raffineria is situated an a lovely area with some very nice restaurants just around the corner. The rooms are absolute silent and the beds are fine. We added breakfast and got a plain but good bread and coffee meal served by a very nice guy.
For sure we vill return, fantastic value for money but look carefully at the map and read the check in instructions!

The instruction is not clear when check in. Arriving in the hotel, i should check in to the other hotel , of which it was not informed before. I have to wait 30 minutes for the officer who come to pick up and open the the gate

In the Jewish ghetto, this old refinery offers a calm stay, but a little expensive for what it offers. The furniture is old, but the room is clean, except for the shower which was “portrayed” with mold at the joints. The windows are very small so the room is quite dark. Nonetheless, the owner is very friendly, he offered us a map with a bit of explanation, he recommended some restaurants where to eat and he answered all the questions. We didn’t try the breakfast (5 euros/person). 30 minutes to Rialto and approximately one hour for St Mark Square by foot; so the location is quite good in term of distances, but it is not so touristic.
