We stayed at this hotel for three nights in September. Caught the ferry from the airport to Guglie station and it is a fairly easy 5 to 10 minute walk to the hotel. We didn't get the code to the door in time but rang the door bell and someone answered and gave us the code. The reception is closed... More

Excellent place to stay in Venice, After a horrible stay in a hotel close by we booked into this gem! We were offered a complimentary breakfast on our arrival with fresh croissants and cappuccinos. The apartment was well furnished, spotless and modern! I will definitely recommended to stay here!

We needed a hotel for a one-night stay at the end of our cruise and found this fairly nice hotel. Though a bit off the beaten path and a bit confusing to find, it was still fairly central, especially if you're good at navigating the Vaporetto. We checked in during a heat wave (over 95 degrees Fahrenheit) and discovered that... More

Really a good place to stay in a quiet and traditional place in Venice! You will feel yourself part of the neighborhood specially if you go to the restaurants in the area and walk around.

We stayed for two nights at the Ca` Fontanea (Ca means house) at Late April and it was a very pleasant stay. Breakfast was OK, not super. Room was very clean.

My wife and I needed a room in Venice near the train station and was able to book on-line. It was easy to find after a short walk.

My girlfriend and myself took a little City break and this was awesome! Ca Fontanea is located in an "off Stream" area where the locals live, well deserved by a very nearby taxi boat station.

In the dark late at night it's hard to see the colour of Ca'Fontanea , but it is yellow! Not easy to find but when you do it is a gem. Nice rooms,big too. Walls are thin though and you can hear the other guests moving about. Breakfast starts at 9, and is fine.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
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.

“We went in late October and opening a window was enough for us on the air - otherwise, I cannot be sure about the A/C situation. Ours was up the stairs and to the right. Could hear neighbors one night but if everyone keeps it down a little - it is no big deal. (remember, people can hear you if you are yelling at your boyfriend...) : )”
