Can't beat the price (50 Euro for 2 people per night) for staying on the main island. However, it's extremely basic and old and tiny!
If/when we visit Venice again, we'll definitely stay somewhere nicer and spend the extra money.
only steps away from public transportation - train station very close, exit turn left and just a few yards away is hotel; cross the bridge in front of station or to the right of train station takes you to bus station and airport shuttle -...More
This hotel is in an excellent location in the heart of Venice just a couple of minutes walk from the St Lucia train station and close to the cruise terminal. Hotel staff were friendly and very helpful. Our room with bathroom was charming and spotlessly...More
We stayed in "Hotel Moderno" that was actually Hotel Zechinni when you arrived (I think Hotel Moderno had been closed down, as the address that we were given was a boarded up building!)

It did take a while to find the hotel moderno, as it went by a different name "Zecchini". The hotel is a short walk from the railway station and the water bus stop. The room was fairly basic, but clean. We stayed during the olympics...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.
