The hotel had a central location just off the Strada Nova in the heart of Cannaregio. Initially, it was a little difficult to find - there is a small sign, but we were going the wrong way down the main street to see it. Inside,...More
Since my husband is close to 80 with difficulty climbing stairs, the staff offered us (as far as I know) the only ground level room the Hotel has! It was AWESOME. We still needed to climb the stairs for breakfast in the morning, although once...More
Great hotel in the middle of the train station and st marco square 15 min walk for both good light breakfast very friendly staff 1min walk from boat stop just down lane way on to the right near coffee shop on corner great location.

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.

Google Maps is pretty accurate. From the Ca D'Oro vaporetto stop (not the Ca' For) walk the only direction possible to the major street, Strada Nova. Turn right, walk to the 2nd street on your left (maybe 40 yards), and turn left there. It's about 20 yards down that street, on your right, a little hidden, like most things in Venice :-)
