Fabiola the concierge is amazing, as are the staff!!. This little gem is located right in the heart of the jewish ghetto next to the square and jewish museum. The hotel has a wonderful breakfast, clean rooms, and the desk are only too helpful when it comes to events, attractions and travel. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.... More

I had the triple room and was delighted about the prices. The breakfast area is a bit small and they don't offer anything traditional, just some slices of cheese/ham plus sweets that you find in a supermarket in your country, but it's good if you don't want to spend a lot on the hotel. And btw the area is perfect,... More

We stayed one night before boarding our cruise ship and the location was great for a number of reasons. 1. It is close to the train station. 2. When you get lost in Venice (and you WILL get lost in Venice), you can ask people directions to the train station and inevitably get back to your hotel. It is located... More

Dear Gina, Firstly, we would like to thank you for taking the time to write a review. Secondly, we are sorry that that "odd smell" impacted on your stay: some days the tide is very low in Venice and that kind of odour comes from this situation which is unfortunately out of our controll.

Very close to train station. A little further to the bus station, but still very walkable. A charming hotel on a narrow (maybe two metres wide) street. Easy access to everything in Venice. Prices for rooms are high in Venice. We selected the Mercante di Venezia because of its great location, but also for its more "affordable" price. The staff... More

Fantastic location in the centre of city and good restaurants especially if you are looking for Halal Food. Close to bus and train station with access to water buses and taxis. Small but clean 3 star accommodation.

Hotel is walkable from station. Staff is very helpful. Free Wi-Fi. Breakfast served is good. Cake was yum. Hotel is in a small street which is diagonal to the main Street. It's so small that I actually missed it for the first time. Room was spacious n clean.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
Cannaregio
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.
