We are in our sixties and stayed at this hotel for three nights 20-23rd April 2012. The location is exceptional with an extremely rare balcony (open to all residents) looking onto the Rialto bridge. Excellent place to sit and stare. There are only eight rooms with the owner and staff offering unprecedented attention. Breakfast was excellent with numerous restaurants for...

In my opinion this review will be very similar to the majority- It is a great little hotel. We stayed here for only one night and it was exactly what we wanted. Location is right in the centre so it is SO easy to just go and explore Venice. The terrace overlooks the Grande Canal which was amazing to sit...

As others have mentioned we booked this Hotel purely on the basis of the reviews on TripAdvisor. Venice is not a location you tend to visit often - as such the reviews probably have more effect on selection than other places we've visited. In summary we were disappointed with the quality of this Hotel for the rates charged and that...

This is a fantastic hotel. We arrived by water taxi from the airport straight to the door and were assisted from the boat by staff and welcomed by Matteo. Our stay was a week long and during that time we felt like royalty. We had a room at the back with an outlook to a small alleyway ( a very...

We stayed six nights at this hotel and it met our every need for our first visit to Venice. The location is perfect being very central with a balcony overlooking the Grand Canal. We had a "Classic Room " with a high ceiling and traditional good quality furnishings. It was not overly large but came with a very high quality...

I stayed for 2 nights on a Venice. I stayed in one of the less expensive rooms, but it still had a great view, was roomy, comfortable bed and had all the facilities expected.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel and could not have felt more welcome. The staff knew us by first name and were always available for advice as to how to approach touring Venice. The room was large and the balacony witha view of Rialto bridge was perfect. Lovely hotel and excellent staff service

We have just returned from Venice and as promised to Bruno, I am giving the hotel a 5 star review. Pros: - the location - right by the Rialto so easy to get to all parts of Venice on foot and if you are tired, you can always hop on a vaporetto; - customer service - Bruno and Matteo couldn't...

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
