We stayed for two nights in Hotel Abbazia. We booked this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews and weren’t disappointed. The Hotel is a quiet lane just 150m from Venice Santa Lucia train station. The rooms were of good size and well decorated, but we didn’t...More
This converted monastery provided us with the a central base with which to visit Venice. Looks quite tatty from the outside, but is beautiful inside with material clad walls in our bedroom overlooking the garden. Yes, we were right underneath the bell tower but somehow...More

We stayed here for three nights in August of 2007 and it was absolutely amazing. Initially we decided on the hotel because it was located close to the train station. We knew it would be hard to roll our luggage around Venice after arriving so...More
We have just returned from a trip to Venice, Paris & London. We spent three nights at the Hotel Abbazia in February and had a great visit. Of the three hotels we stayed at on our trip this was by FAR the best.
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.

From Hotel Abbazia come out the front door, turn right and walk to the end of the building. Turn right again and walk about 1 city block past the train station and over the bridge. You can see the building with the Avis office on the right hand side. Walk to the other side of the building and there is "People Mover" (train) that costs 1.5 euro and takes you right to the dock. Fast, close and comfortable. A very short walk.
