The Tre Archi is a three star hotel. It is a good establishment, a bit overpriced, especially if you stay over the weekend, and old fashioned (no wi-fi or lifts and poor toiletries) but it is clean, quiet and charming and the location is lovely, It's on the Fondamenta Di Cannaregio, reasonably close to the station and the Grand Canal. The water bus going directly to and from the airport stops very close by at Guglie, a huge plus and there is a vaporetto stop immediately outside which will get you to the railway station and Piazzale Roma as well as Lido. You need to change to get down the Grand Canal.
Our 'split level' room would be unsuitable for anyone with limited mobility but had a balcony overlooking a little garden; another huge plus. Given the price of the hotel the breakfasts on offer were fairly poor, dull, generic bread rolls, soft cheese spread, mass produced croissants and cereals but excellent yoghourt, assuming you like plain, and the beverages came from a machine. Everything was fresh, but dull and unimaginative and they really could make more effort. The breakfast room was clean and bright.
There are several small restaurants just across the canal, we ate at the Trattoria Marisa directly opposite the hotel, where they offered a fixed menu of about 6 courses, presumably they do this each night. Most of its patrons are local people so it goes without saying that the food is good and we had a wonderful time.
The Tre Archi has all the makings of a really good hotel if it would only improve on the peripherals. I recommend it as long as you take into account the caveats above and I'll be happy to stay there again but will try to miss the weekend.
