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.

There are several options on how to travel from airport to this hotel. Either by water taxi, Alilaguna to Fondamente Nove and then an easy walk or by bus to Piazzale Roma en from there on Vaporetto number 1 to Ca D'oro and then a short easy walk. Hotel has a mezzanine floor before you reach the first (top) floor. No elevator but stairs are really not too many and staff helps with luggage!

The hotel has a great location, in my opinion. Quiet neighborhood but only a minute or two walk from a main artery with lots of restaurants. Also, very close to a water bus station, for beautiful rides along the Grand Canal and getting to places like St Marks.

You could easily walk from the Abadessa to the port, it would take around 20 mins, there are bridges of course along the route, can be tiresome with suitcases. Or you could email the Palazzo and ask if a water taxi could take you straight to the port. The hotel has its own docking.

Sadly we did not see any lifts. We were on the first floor which was accessed by a large wide double staircase which was not a difficult climb. I do believe however there may have been some rooms on ground level.

"All rooms are very individual and you best check with the hotel which one suits your taste."
"Get a room with a high ceiling"
"Book a suite, you won't regret your spending !"
"Go for the higher 'noble' floor rooms, which are up a curved staircase and very quiet."
