If I could give this hotel more stars, I would. All of the staff members were simply outstanding--all very passionate about their city and helping us in any way possible. The owner, Matteo, greeted us on arrival, gave us a tour of his beautiful hotel, and was present to help us with any questions throughout our stay. He also made...

We are staying here now. Since our arrival yesterday, we have received the warmest welcome, been introduced to our beautiful room with astounding view, walked to their excellent restaurant recommendation from this central location, and feasted on their sumptuous breakfast. The canal boat ride with musicians they arranged for us brought tears to my eyes. Located in a gorgeous 14th...

We stayed here for 2 nights in early January - I wish we could have stayed for weeks. This is simply the best hotel we have ever stayed at. The owner, Mateo, greeted us by name upon arrival. Every single interaction with staff involved them greeting us by name. As someone who is not good with remembering names, this was...

We have stayed at this hotel 3 times since 2009, and it is simply our favorite hotel in the world, and we have stayed in a lot of great places. The owner and staff are very attentive, helpful, and make us feel like we are part of their family when we visit. It says a great deal about the hotel...

The pictures of the view of Grand Canal from the breakfast balcony was what hooked us on what felt like a splurge reservation at Al Ponte Antico. We were not disappointed and that was only one of the magical parts of our stay. Matteo met us on our arrival and gave us a tour and history of his beautiful hotel!...

Without exception, the staff at Al Ponte Antico were all wonderful - Matteo (the owner) greeted us by our first names, as did all the staff. Many thanks to Oliver, Alex, David, Rose-alba and everyone for making us feel so welcome. It is only a tiny boutique hotel (9 bedrooms) very close to the Rialto Bridge. We arrived in style...

If you are looking for an extra special experience, you will find it at the Al Ponte Antico Hotel. From the moment you enter this beautifully restored 16th century palace you will feel as though you are transported to a magical place.

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.
