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...

We have just spent 4 nights here and thought I had done my homework on Tripadvisor and had found a gem like Spalletti Trevelli in Rome which was truly exceptional. Al Ponte should not be listed as a hotel but a B and B at best. There are no communal areas to sit in apart from the breakfast room and...

We stayed at Al Ponte Antico in April 2011. It was a truly memorable experience for all the right reasons. Each morning we ate our delicious breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Grand Canal watching the endlessly entertaining morning rush hour of boats. There are many reasons to stay here but, above all, the personal service at this hotel is...

Much of what we experienced has already been said in many other reviews but we felt we had to share our experience at the Al Ponte Antico. Arriving via water taxi from the airport right to the hotel entrance is quite easy and effortless and takes away any concerns with having to navigate through Venice's cobblestone streets with your luggage....

We arrived by water taxi straight from the airport. As the hotel is right on the Grand Canal, you are dropped off right at the front entrance, effortless. We were welcomed by our first names, given a brief but informative tour of the hotel and left to settle into our room which was at water level looking out onto the...

Image a hotel where the owner welcomes you - arriving by Watertaxi straight from the airport - with the first names of your entire party. Where all staff - and I mean all staff - already knows your kids names. Where the staff - and I mean all staff - is constantly eager to make you feel truly welcome, without...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Al Ponte Antico Hotel.

Unfortunately my first impression of the hotel was terrible. We´re given -I guess- the worst room of all the hotel. It was dark, dark and dark and when I opened the windows searching for a hint of light all I found was a gray thick wall almost reachable by my hand. Without opening the luggage we asked for another room...

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.
