Hard to improve on what others have said. We had the standard room, which was very comfortable but not necessarily a room I would want to spend a lot of time in as it has no view - but given a superb hotel patio overlooking...More
This was my first trip to Venice and we stayed at the Al Ponte Antico Hotel for 4 days. We arrived from the airport to the hotel via water taxi. There is a dock on the Grand Canal so you can enter the hotel from...More
We have stayed at this hotel twice, once during Christmas 2012 and in May 2017. Both times were just fantastic. I agree with all of the other points that the positive reviewers express: great location, views of the canal (you are on the Grand Canal),...More
Yes, this hotel lives up to its five star rating!
The owner, Matteo, put his personal stamp on the renovation of this great hotel. This hotel is an old 800 year old mansion located directly on the Canal, which Matteo has restored with painstaking details....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.
