In expensive venice,Antica Raffineria is a Value for Money option. Its more of a Guest House than a proper hotel , but it has a cosy feel with friendly owners. We had booked a 3 person sharing room as there were 3 adults and 1...More
We stayed Antica Raffineria in our three nights trip to Venize. The hotel is in very nice area. We arrived Venize by bus and it was easy to just walk to the hotel. Train station is also near. Check in went great. All the staff...More
I felt this hotel was a small hidden treasure box in a great location within the beautiful Venice. The room was absolutely suitable for us, however, the air conditioning was a bit funny. It would have been great to have a small fridge in the...More
You do not feel like a tourist in this neighborhood and can enjoy such quiet mornings/evenings! The hotel is so lovely, in a small square, and you can come and go freely. The room and bathroom were spotless. I love it!
I'd recommend this area if you're visiting Venice - it's not too tourist-orientated, but close to the train station with late-night bars and restaurants. Maria was very helpful over email with our late arrival... just on the 11:30pm cut-off! The hotel is simply decorated, clean...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.
