We paid 90 euros a night for room only, the room was in a venetian style with on-suite nice and clean, not much of a view as it looked on to an internal courtyard (room 21) but this ment it was nice and quiet.
Remember the volcanic ash cloud over Europe? Well some hotels really tried to take advantage of their clientele during this tough time, and Al Vagon is at the top of the list. What happened:

The guest had cancelled his booking the day before he arrived, we accepted the cancellation, we didn't debit him with anything even though we could have done it. Anyway the guest arrived in our hotel and he wanted the room even if he had cancelled...More
Overall this is a great little hotel. Probably not too expensive for Venice.
The room was exactly as expected, the superior canal view room (No 2 in the annex) is as per the picture on the hotel website.

This hotel was well located and well maintained and relatively well priced. However our room was situated above a main thoroughfare and this meant there was constant noise until 3.00am every night. There was no double glazing to kill the noise.
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.
Hi we stayed in the annex, it was a lovely venitian room, there aren't really any views as it is so central, but you don't want to be spending time in the room, get out and about. The hotel style was gorgeous, we would go... More
