We stayed here for 2 nights in early May 2017. I chose Ca' Fontanea because of its reasonable price & close proximity to a convenient Alilugana waterbus stop from the airport. I did not want to be dragging my luggage all over Venice. It was...More
This tiny hotel in Cannaregio neighborhood of Venice gets 4 circles from me because of it's great location, friendly and accommodating service, cleanliness, price, generous breakfast. It was not luxurious by any stretch. I stayed 2 nights with my sister. Room was small, 2 twin...More
There was so much wrong with this *hotel* that it is hard to say it all. This was our 7th visit to Venice and whilst not the cheapest by any means but without doubt the worst all the others were good or excellent. To arrive...More
Great quiet location, breakfast was a bit hit and miss and delivered to your room not eaten downstairs in the dining room. Facilities were basic but clean and the staff helpful, good for the price and only a ten minute walk from the station
Read the reviews of this place we had a beautiful apartment with roof terrace! Very quiet, had a kitchen so you could eat on a budget. There's a water bus stop 3 mins up the canal, buy a 24hr travel card and go anywhere you...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.

NO. You cannot drive into Venice beyond the car park at the end of the bridge from Mestre. If you drive and park in that car park, which I understand is very expensive, you'll then have to take a water bus or water transport... More
NO. You cannot drive into Venice beyond the car park at the end of the bridge from Mestre. If you drive and park in that car park, which I understand is very expensive, you'll then have to take a water bus or water transport of some sort to get to anyplace in Venice, including Ca' Fontanea Hotel.

Hi, I am sorry but I have no answer for that as I get to Venice by train and not by flight. Eventually try to look for a boat heading to Venice train station and from there it is only 10 minutes walk. If the new Ponte delle Vacche is open - on the right side of the station, right behind - it is really 5 minutes!
Any further help do not hesitate to contact me. Enjoy Venice. Too beautiful to be true!
