I know that some previous reviews have criticized the hotel for being a bit shabby/ in need of refurbishment, but I would say that, given the amount of work needed to the fabric of the buildings in Venice, it is doing pretty well.
Visiting Venice for four nights with a group, we wanted a well located hotel, convenient to all the walks and sites. This hotel fitted the bill perfectly. Unpretentious but comfortable and an excellent breakfast. It is two minutes walk from the station and in an...More
Typical Italian hotel in Venice. Room a bit tired for decor including beds. Like all of Italy they don’t have any tea and coffee making facility’s in the room (you might want to take a travel kettle) Staff are very smart and friendly and professional....More
We arrived from the train station which is a short walk to the hotel. Reception desk was friendly and informative, enjoyed some drinks on the outside patio over looking the Grand Canal. Breakfast was buffet style with many options to pick; either light or have...More
Most of Venice needs a coat of fresh paint. But that's it's charm. The guy at Jet 2 that I booked win recomended Hotel Principe. Located on the Grand Canal, near the rail & bus stations. Road Taxi to airport €40. Water bus in the...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.

I am anti smoking as well and our room was non smoking. If you want to be sure, perhaps email the hotel to ensure you are allocated a non smoking room. I'm not sure if the entire hotel is non smoking because I could faintly smell on one of our days some fumes coming into our room from the air vent. The reason we chose this hotel is that it is very close to the train station as we have a lot of luggage. Turn left out of the station, and walk about 5 minutes and the hotel is on your right.

I was only a guest at the hotel - I'd contact them directly if you wish to stay in that particular hotel - their contact details are on their website and I'm sure that they would be helpful in administering your booking - ask for a canal view room as a free upgrade (worth it). Enjoy Venice.
