We have stayed at the Al Ponte Antico on our recent trip to Venice in March. It is a wonderful place that provides one with a true Venetian travel experience. The hotel is located by the Rialto bridge, right on the Grand Canal. We stayed in one of the larger rooms with a view of the canal. I have one...

My wife and I arrived in Venice after a long flight. Matteo, the owner, was standing at the door and greated us by name, and asked if he could do anything to help us relax. We didn't even say who we were and he was escorting us to our room. Talk about a great first impression! The hotel is small...

As others have discovered this is a special hotel for many reasons, but one thing is for sure, you will have to go very far and stay in a lot of hotels to find anywhere with better, friendlier, more obliging and helpful staff. A high standard is clearly what they aim for and they certainly succeed. We stayed overnight on...

The hotel was wonderful. The staff went out of their way to be helpful, giving us recommendations for everything from how to best organize our sightseeing to where to find delicious non-touristy restaurants. Their guidance allowed us to have a personal experience in Venice. The room itself was large, clean, comfortable, and well-decorated. The breakfast was lovely, with a great...

Matteo, Bruno and all of the staff at the hotel couldn't have been kinder. Tomas, the most entertaining night porter was fabulous too. The personal level of service was so friendly and their kind advice, even down to restaurant reccommendations, could not be faulted. My wife and I stayed there for four nights for my sixtieth birthday as a treat...

Stayed at the Al Ponte Antico for a long weekend, the hotel is so rightly situated, the service was second to none, nothing was too much trouble, would definately recommend this 9 room Palace to couples wishing a high quality get away.

We stayed for 3 nights at the Al Ponte Antico during a weekend stay. The hotel (or Palace) interior is stunning and every detail is thought through. With many small hotels you get a variation in room size and although we elected to have a standard room we were able to see one of the rooms facing the canal and...

I have stayed in many hotels and the Al Ponte Antico ranks right up there with the very best. The building and the interior decor are absolutely stunning and the rooms are generous in size. The location is just perfect, a few minutes walk from the Rialto Bridge. But what makes this hotel outstanding is the staff, they make the...

Spent just a night here a couple weeks back, and everything was very, very good, though wonder if it merits quite the laudatory praise and extremely high ranking on TA. Had done quite a bit of research, and I guess I expected to be more bowled over than I was, merely based on everyone's reviews. It's true that nearly everything...

This is a very small hotel located near the Rialto Bridge. The service is just like every other reviewer has written, outstanding! Don't expect the formality of classic big hotels, here they will really make you feel at home. Well decorated small rooms, excellent location. Recommend!

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.
