Imagine you have a friend, Matteo who is the gracious owner of a beautiful small palazzo on the Grand Canal overlooking the Rialto Bridge from a lovely terrace. It is run by a efficient and warm staff who seem to know you the minute you step off the water taxi at their dock. You have arrived at the wonderful Hotel...

Basically its a priceless palace overlooking one of the worlds greatest bridges, in the worlds most amazing city. Matteo runs and owns this treasure and he puts all his passion into it. His staff is amazing and really good looking too. His coffee machine costs more than most cars, just don't ask him to make an ice coffee with it(this...

The location was close to all the best shops and restaurants. Best of all it had a beautiful view of the Rialto bridge from the terrace. Its an old palazzo that is steeped in history. It has been beautifully renovated and gives you a sense of traveling back in time. The hotel is immaculately clean, very comfortable, very well equipped...

Hotel is right on the Grand Canal by the Rialto bridge. We caught a water taxi from airport directly to hotel where the staff was waiting for us. Owner Matteo and staff are super friendly and their service is terrific. Every day but one, we ate breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Rialto bridge. Matteo cooks omelettes to order, and...

Absolutely beautiful. This is the only place I'd ever stay in Venice. The owner Mateo takes great pride in his hotel and you can absolutely see why. Everything was restored all the frescos, ceilings, drapes... Magnificent charm and elegance. The staff is very friendly and informative. Every morning there is a huge continental breakfast available, delicious! The terrace in the...

From the moment we stepped ashore nothing was too much trouble for Matteo and his team. Our Junior suite was spectacular and very large. On the side of the Grand Canal and so close to the Rialto Bridge which greeted us each evening with spectacular floodlighting. It was so easy to walk everywhere and the water taxi to Murano from...

There is only one place to stay in Venice and its at Al Ponte Antico with Matteo, Oliver, Alex and the rest of the amazing staff. Spent the last few days of our honeymoon in Venice, and as per a friends recommendation, stayed at Al Ponte Antico. Both my husband and I have traveled all over the world and can...

We have just returned from a 3 night break here and I will echo everyone else's comments on the hotel. The staff are truly amazing - so kind and caring, the breakfast was delicious, the room was to die for and everything else inside and outside of this hotel are perfect. Nothing is too much trouble and the location speaks...

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
