It was a great find for price/quality/location. About a 20 min walk from the train station, in a quiet neighborhood. And of course in walking distance to any major sites of Venice. The employees were very welcoming and accommodating, they gave us our room early when we arrived way before check-in time. Breakfast was modest but welcomed compared to the... More

The reception only works in the morning but everything is taken care for you to arrive at any time. With good boat connections and 10min walk fro. The train station is a nice place to stay with good rooms and very clean. Wi-Fi is very good

When we travel my wife and I try to find a place to stay that lets us feel like we're living a little like the locals. Sometimes we get it right.. This time when we stayed at ca'fontanea not only did we get it right. We got it REALLY RIGHT. CA"Fontanera was perfect. Venice can be really crowded and busy..... More

We found this through booking.com whilst on our honeymoon at a very affordable price. It looked picturesque and authentically Venetian. We were pleasantly surprised that it lived up to the pictures and especially pleased when we were upgraded to the honeymoon suit with a complimentary bottle of Champagne. The honeymoon suit was equipt with a kitchen and laundry facilities. The... More

Great location in a beautiful quiet less 'touristy' part of venice so less crowds etc. 5 mins walk from a number of restaurants and the vaperetto stop. We arrived and it turned out there was a mistake with our booking therefore our room wasn't ready however the hosts were accommodating and helpful by letting us store our things and getting... More

When we booked this stay, the manager Luciano emailed us immediately with very explicit directions in order for us to locate the establishment with ease upon our arrival in Venice. We were welcomed by Luciano and immediately offered a map of the area. Located in the residential area of Crea, this allowed us to mingle with the locals away from... More

They also provided a detailed map n directions to reach the hotel which was very helpful. The hotel is located away from the crowded part of Venice. It took us about 45 mins to walk to grand canal.

PROs: ROOMS: Large rooms for Europe, and especially for Venice. Adequate Bathroom space, good hot water, good cooling (once the proprietor enabled it). LOCATION: In a real neighborhood of real Venetians, off the tourist path, with nice neighborhood bars and restaurants and 3 relatively close vaporetti stops. Still, only a 10 minute walk to the main tourist drag between the... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
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.
