The hotel was 10 minutes' walk from the bus station, and we walked everywhere for our 3 days there. The staff were really helpful, humorous and efficient.
The building is stunning, full of historical features (a pulpit in the bar/lounge area!).
Breakfast was help yourself,...More
We loved the Hotel Abbazia. The location is minutes away from the train station. We exited the train station by a side door (from the trains, if you face the main exit this door is on your left you can see the brick wall outside...More
It is around the corner from the train station so you don't have to lug your suitcase very far, yet it is tucked away in a monastery so it is a picturesque property. The staff are so cheerful and helpful. The lobby is lovely and...More
My wife and I stayed there for 4 nites in February '08 and were very satisfied. Well situated down a safe alley very near a waterbus station, the RR station and the Piazelle Roma where all the buses from the airport come in. Its a...More
When approaching the hotel we got slightly anxious by external appearance. All concerns went when inside. Impressive building with fantastic reception staff. Rooms were modern and spacious with the triple room we booked being large enough for 5 people. No shower but jacuzzi baths were...More
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.

From Hotel Abbazia come out the front door, turn right and walk to the end of the building. Turn right again and walk about 1 city block past the train station and over the bridge. You can see the building with the Avis office on the right hand side. Walk to the other side of the building and there is "People Mover" (train) that costs 1.5 euro and takes you right to the dock. Fast, close and comfortable. A very short walk.
