We just got back from staying at the main, original hotel. We spent 3 nights there. Apparently there is a huge difference between the accommodations of the main hotel where we stayed and the “annex.” I picked out the hotel based upon the rave reviews....More
I stayed here for 2 nights (friday and saturday) in a single room ($35/night) by myself with a sink. Toilet and shower were upstairs in a single bathroom but never had a problem not being able to use it. The whole place was very clean...More
Our room was in the annex in another building a couple blocks from the main hotel. Large room. The breakfast was ok: juice, different breads, coffee & sometimes yogurt. We used the wi-fi at the main hotel twice. The vaporetto stop is near and the...More

Venice is NOT cheap.However, I think that you get your money's worth at Hotel Bernardi. It was relatively easy to find...given that nothing is easy to find in Venice. Remember that a tiny alley is considered a street and you will do fine! We got...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.
