I am amazed that Archie's is still in business and that it hasn't it been closed down for health issues. When I stayed in 1988 I had to put coins into a machine to get a few minutes of luke warm water for a shower......More

We stayed for one night only and we had experience of true Medieval Venice.Warm running water & kitchen facilities were absent, as well as a proper working reception. Only one bedsheet is provided (you have to pay for the extra one). The bedroom is crawling...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

Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
