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.
