We stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are interestingly decorated. Our room was situated on the canal at water level which made looking out the window a different but a good experience.
The manager Marco gave us great instructions...More
Advertised as a boutique hotel, the pictures on their website are highly deceiving. At best this place can be described as a pokey ‘B&B’ without the breakfast or the service. Upon arrival we were greeted by a member of staff who reeled off endless ‘rules’...More
This hotel is situated down a small alley riddled with urine and rubbish, also if you are following the hotels website directions they forget to mention the final detail; .......then take the first calle (street) on the left, after this they fail to mention you...More

I have got to say, we had a bad experience in Florence where the attitude to tourists was appalling and we were treated very badly. When coming to Venice I was anticipating more of the same. Well was I very pleasantly proven wrong.
We loved Al Canal Regio it is ideally placed to walk from or catch the Vaporetto to all of the main sites in Venice , being just of the main street (Strada Nuovo). It is not as some advisors suggest in a run down part...More
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 neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.

The hotel will only get you transport from the hotel,I had the same question we found getting a land bus from Marco Polo AirPort Venice then a vaperetto (water bus) No1 to c,dor and it was a 5 minute walk to the hotel total price around 12 euros each. If you look on google maps you can see the route to walk. Any other questions i had I gave the hotel a ring the number is on trip advisor. The staff all speak English. Hope this helps.

Are you flying to marco polo? If so there's a travel guide desk in the airport that gives you directions and tickets for the bus and boat needed to get to the hotel. Very easy to spot when you come out of arrivals and very helpful staff who speak hood English. The bus stop is right outside the airport with clear indication or times and numbers etc. Can't remember which bus was needed but you will be told at the help desk. It's the very last stop so no need to worry about when you should get off. The boats are all lined up along the canal and are easily located. Again can't remember which boat is needed but you will be told this also at the help desk. Pretty much like a bus/taxi service along the canals. You'll be told which stop is yours. About 15 mins if I remember correctly. Lovely time to enjoy the views. Once you come off the boat then it's a 5 min walk to the hotel. It's in a secluded area and behind an alleyway. Google maps helps if you're able to use it.
