We stayed here as part of our honeymoon trip around Europe for 3 nights while in Venice. The room is spacious enough although we couldn't open the wardrobe doors without hitting the bed but as we were living out of our suitcases it didn't matter...More
Fabulous location only a few minutes walk from the station and central to many restaurants shops etc
Situated down an alley (like many hotels in Venice) could prove difficult to find in the evening if arriving when dark.
Hotel welcome was pretty poor, receptionist couldn't...More
Breakfast was ok basic but fine. Room was clean and staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel down a little alleyway so a little difficult to find at first but just off major shopping area and shop keepers really helpful. Reasonably priced and get to...More
The location is convenient not only to train and bus terminal but to the
vaporetto (water bus). It's in a quite alley and easy to walk to anywhere from there. We had s triple room in the courtyard which was spacious, clean and had a...More
This was my second stay at Villa Rosa. I had previously stayed in 2013 and picked it again because it is clean, reasonably priced, handy to the railway station and easy to find. We were warmly welcomed and when we told them we had an...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.

Breakfast is served from sevenish to at least nine. We loved the individual tables, full number of choices, and coffee that you could machine program to be exactly what we wanted. If you need to get there earlier, just ask... More
Breakfast is served from sevenish to at least nine. We loved the individual tables, full number of choices, and coffee that you could machine program to be exactly what we wanted. If you need to get there earlier, just ask that they provide some items that you can pack on your way to the train station, which is a five-minute walk.

When we moved from Venice to Florence we had to go from Mestre. You can get a train from St Lucia, which is 5 mins from the hotel. We bought our tickets using the machines in St Lucia train station. Very easy to use. Ticket was €1.25 and it takes 15mins to get to Mestre.
