We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at hotel Palazzo Abadessa! It’s located in a quiet neighborhood away from main tourist traffic areas yet within walking distance to all the main attractions. Getting here from the train station and in general around Venice is very easy...More
This was such a great find and we loved staying here during our visit to Venice. Quite a charming boutique hotel with tons of atmosphere. It is a historic building with plenty of character, very clean and updated baths. The staff was helpful, kind and...More
We arrived via a shared transfer from the airport and were taken to the ca' d'oro stop off the canal. The hotel was a very short walk from there, down a side alley and toward the canal. There is a wonderful courtyard when you enter,...More
A water taxi takes you right to this hotel. The hotel is in the Venetian style with a lovely inner courtyard, so quiet and peaceful. Our room was large with a king bed and loveseats with lots of room for our luggage. We were gifted...More
My family and I prefer modern accommodations, but the Abadessa was a fun and pleasant change. We took a water taxi from the airport directly to the hotel which was cool. Luca was welcoming and a great host. The building and decor is classic and...More

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.

We took a water taxi from the airport to a close stop to the hotel, then walked. When we went to our cruise ship we took a different water taxi to where the people mover is, then took a regular taxi. It wasn’t that much of a hassle. (I am 59 with bad knees)

As others replied, yes it is close to restaurants and is in a quiet neighborhood. Be prepared wherever you stay though, beautiful Venice is a tangle of canals, and many "streets" are not much wider than two person across alleyways. Even with walking GPS it is a bit of a maze. Named streets are labeled on the sides of buildings - not sign posts, but not all are labeled. Don't be deterred though; it is a fascinating city.
