We (my wife, son and I) have travelled alot and I have never put a review on tripadvisor until now. We loved our stay at this hotel and can highly recommend it to others, all the staff were extremely friendly and went out of their way to assist us. Our room 102 was very spacious, not to mention beautiful with...

I booked this hotel based on its rating in Tripadvisor an entire year ahead of time. I was not disappointed in the slightest. I have to say that this was one of my most delightful experiences in any hotel I've ever stayed in, anywhere. We were greeted by a charmingly helpful young man named Oliver who was a delight in...

My 12 year old daughter and I loved every minute of our stay at Al Ponte Antico Hotel. The entire staff was incredibly welcoming and genuine. We were there for only one night and wished we could have stayed longer. It was like staying with a family and not at a hotel. The front patio area on the canal was...

We had a special anniversary trip that included Venice and lucked out in our stay at Al Ponte Antico. Tucked into an alley near the Rialto Bridge (easy to find once you know where it is), we were fortunate to get one of only nine rooms in this special place. The staff -- from the owner to the night clerk...

It's not often that we want to return to a hotel, but after our week at Hotel Al Ponte Antico 2 years ago we decided that we had to come back. Arriving by water taxi straight to the landing at the hotel is extremely convenient, as is the location of the hotel, only about a 10 minute walk to Piazza...

We stayed for four nights July 2012. Absolutely loved the location and everything about this hotel. All the staff are great and very good with names. Breakfast on the balcony was a treat. Great just to sit and watch the passing parade on the Grand canal.

We stayed for two nights in July, 2012. Although a little difficult to find (see other reviews), the directions emailed us by the hotel were fine. The location is excellent, right on the Grand Canal, near the Rialto bridge. What sets this hotel above many others we have been to is the excellent customer service provided by all staff, from...

Small hotel with amazing rooms. The hotel is a former palace for a family of aristocrats. The walls and ceilings are original. The interior design is breathtaking with murano glass chandeliers in the rooms and amazing works of art on the walls. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly yet professional. An amazing breakfast with eggs and pancakes cooked to...

This hotel is nothing short of spectacular. True, it was expensive, but the suite right on the water we stayed in was beautiful and the service was impeccable. We had breakfast on the lovely balcony each morning, which has an excellent view of the Rialto Bridge. Our suite was truly spacious, they gave me copious quantities of ice every single...

Our extended family (grandparents & teens) stayed at the delightful Hotel Al Ponte Antico several summers ago and still rate this hotel at the top of our "favorite hotels in the world" list. The noteworthy service was personal and attentive; the rooms sublimely quiet and comfortable, especially after a long, grueling plane trip. The public rooms were beautifully decorated with...

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
