My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and found the hotel (really an old age home converted) terribly overpriced and mediocre at best. We were told it was 4 star when we called. The rooms were small, nice and clean and very basic...More
Really disappointing in every way. I'm a fair person, but this was without doubt the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. No air-conditioning, so rooms were boiling hot. I tried opening the windows- got bitten alive from mosquitoes and the noise outside was startling....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.
