Old Hotel which definitely requires an upgrade and and extensive amount of renovation. Rooms and corridors are quite filthy (bathrooms are clean). Breakfast is poor and poorly scheduled (fresh fruit salads arrived at 10, while breakfast started at 7). The reception is at the end...More
Spent 5 nights at the Nazionale - an easy walk with luggage from the railway station or bus terminal - over one bridge, blown away already from the views of the Grande Canal during the short walk and at the hotel in minutes. Staff at...More
This hotel was a good price for Venice. It was in a great location near a couple water bus / taxi stations, the train station, car rental and the only road on and off the island. The rooms were not great but fine for our...More
Was a bit hot and when opened the window, the mosquitoes moved in. Need to be careful especially in the rooms on the back of the hotel. Breakfast was good and staff are helpful. Needs to have some make ups
The outside looks encouraging and it is in a perfect location by the train station and Grande Canal. However once inside the interior is dark and gloomy and it gives the illusion the walls are closing in on you. The porter very helpful and takes...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.
