I absolutely loved this hotel - from the moment I stepped off the vaporetto! The 17th century theme, complete with Murano glass chandeliers and damask silk wallpaper, might seem gaudy or excessive anywhere else in the world - but _here_, in _Venice_ this decor is in its natural habitat and this was exactly what I was hoping for! The location... More

Great hotel with genuinely friendly and helpful staff. Location excellent for all the main sites and for travelling to the islands of the lagoon. Hotel situated in the heart of where we wanted to eat out. Will go back

This was a very nice hotel. We knew our room was going to be small but maybe didn't really quite that small. The bed was comfortable, linen nice, however the bathroom door did not close properly and some of the bathroom supplies were not adequately replenished daily (as was the mini bar). The breakfast was of a lovely quality (great... More

This hotel was sumptuous and delightful. The building had been a palace and maintained most of the artwork, furniture, and decorations of the past and it was like staying in a palace of the olf Venice. It was very convenient (can even have a water taxi pick you up at the back door) and an easy walk to all the... More

This was the second time my husband and I stayed at Palazzo Abadessa, we loved it so much the first time. And we were not disappointed. It is very elegant and we loved the period antiques it is furnished in. Our room was large, beautiful and had a balcony overlooking one of the many canals. And there was a bottle... More

Stay 1 night. Easy to find close to D Oro, and McDonald. This hotel is in the centre of everything, but peaceful. Our room has view to the canal, spacious and immaculately refurbished. This hotel is like an oasis in the middle of the hectic Venice, due to its location and garden. Breakfast was good with great selection. Next time,... More

A lovely hotel with great staff who were very helpful, we had a generous room with period furniture. This hotel has a lovely atmosphere and secluded garden and it situated in a canal that means you can arrive with your luggage by water taxi. The bed was very comfortable and had nice crisp linen.

This is an old-school, classic hotel with a great location (down a couple of narrow, old-Venice alleys, and on a canal), elegant rooms (especially the first night, when we got a free upgrade), and a very nice and helpful staff. A good breakfast too.

Stayed there for three nights in a loft suite overlooking the canal (room 22). The hotel is wonderful. Tucked away in a quiet corner yet just a short stroll to Rialto Bridge and beyond. The staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is good and unrushed. I will definitely stay here again. Fantastic place.

This hotel was located in a small alley, as most hotels in Venetia. It has a very nice garden, which not all hotels have. The receptionist, Matteo, was helpful and friendly. He gave us direction on how to get to the hotel from the parking lot in Tronchetto. It was very helpful since there were so many stops if you... More

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.
