We actually booked this hotel when we found it was 15th century, on a canal and had a Juliet balcony! 3 of our wants for our anniversary trip to Venice! Although the Cannaregio district is away from the main tourist sights, it is conveniently located to train station and Ferrovia Vaporetto (5 minute walk) and the bus station 20 minute walk and the Aliguna airport taxiboat at Ponte Giulie is few hundred yards down the canal. There are plenty of delightful restaurants just down the canal from the hotel and a busy touristy area 5 minutes away. the room was lovely with a 4 poster bed (mattress and pillows hard though!) and large marble bathroom. We spent an evening sitting on our pretty balcony watching the world float by on the canal, while eating a cheap meal of pizza and drinking the complimentary bottle of Prosecco! One morning we had a quick breakfast in the sun on the same balcony. The staff were very helpful in telling us times of boats etc and the best way to get to the sights-fun and easy by boat or walking-that we did not mind being off the beaten track. One morning we wandered into the Jewish quarter-the Ghetto Vecchio. In the main square there is a memorial to those who were deported to concentration camps- it is worth visiting and remembering.
Breakfast rather standard and served in a cramped ground floor room-bread and croissants were often burnt-coffee pretty bad! Fresh fruit muesli and yogurts were appreciated however. Air conditioning needed to be on the whole day to really cool the room-however they gave us a fan when we requested it and we were able to sleep much better.
On the whole very good value for money in a romantic and historic atmosphere-after all we spent less time in the hotel than out in Venice-gave us more money to spend on seeing the sights and dinner!
