We booked this B&B on the basis of the reviews on trip advisor - and boy are we glad we did.
Sandra and Leonard are exceptional hosts. The accommodation was fantastic. Book the attic room if you can, it's wonderful.

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.

Water taxi will drop you right outside the door, but the 3 flights of stairs might pose a problem! Better choice would be universal hotel, behind railway station, you could get a porter trolley to take your bags, and they have quite a reasonable breakfast, and very central for vaporeta, taxi and tourist area.
