My first review ever, ofcourse because of my worst stay ever. We picked this hotel because of its location obviously. The front desk staff was super rude...he looks like hitler too :). Our room smelled like mold and it was horrible. The AC did not...More
The experience was a mixed bag. The best part about the hotel was the location. Less than a minutes walk from St.Lucia Train station and no bridges to cross. Also very close to the vaporette/water taxi station. The 2nd best part was a lady at...More
I stayed at this hotel three times and was always satisfied. I particularly like the location as it's just a few hundred meters from the railway station down the main street leading to the centre of Venice. I tried other hotels at different locations in...More
Convient location, nice friendly staff, decent size rooms, very nicely decorated, and good bathrooms. What more could you ask for.
Especially recommended for first timers on Venice. Easy to find, and easy to go everyplace else from there. A few hundred yards from train station,...More
We read all the reviews but risked booking in Belle Epoque because it was one of the only hotels left in Venice as it was the Art Biennale and the city was full. All the bads review written by other guests are 100% true. Five...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.

Hope you get this in time (3/9/17) We found the glass bridge from Piazza del Roma quite a challenge for two 61 yearolds with large luggage but we managed it.If you arrive by train you will be on the right side of the canal anyway.We did the same as you and arrived a day early as it was our first cruise and did not want to "miss the boat" (ship) As it was our 40th wedding anniversary it was nice to spend the day and a half in Venice as we arrived there about 11am.So in answer to your question,as we had a whole day and a half we purchased 2 x24 hr vaparetto tickets (Eu20 each which is cheaper for multiple stops) at about 1-30pm to see the sights,this then gave us about an hour vaperetto time at 12-30 the next day to catch the short hop to the Del Roma vaperetto station avoiding the glass bridge.From there we took a short walk across the bus station to the people mover to get to the port.The ticket machine takes cards but to be sure have the Eu1-50 x 2 if I were you.Its then a good walk into the port its so vast,takes about 10 mins.Hope this helps.
No I'm pretty sure there wasn't. Hotels in Italy don't usually have tea/coffee making facilities, something to do with safety I think. Its a really nice hotel, and in a great position for walking around Venice.
