We were a family of four (kids 15 and 13) travelling together. I chose this hotel because it was close to the railway station and even though it was close to the station, as often that is not the nicest area of a city. We...More
We stayed for four nights at the Hotel Abbazia and couldn't have been more impressed. The rooms were huge and very clean, breakfast was wonderful and the staff could not have been more helpful or pleasant. It was very convenient to the ACTV and the...More

Spent 3 nights here in Jan 08. Location is great if arriving via train or via the bus from the airport at piazza roma which is the bus terminus. Its a 5 min walk to the hotel or 1 stop via the water bus (vaparetto)....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.
