Hotel Boccassini is a five minute walk away from the Vaporetto station "Fondamente Nuove" which makes it super convenient. Placed in a rather tranquil part of Venice you still have a strategic hotspot and get everywhere pretty fast. There is a supermarket 10 min away...More
My husband and I stayed here for a anniversary celebration and it couldn't have been more perfect. The location is excellent in the quieter streets on the outside of Venice yet all sights are easily walkable. The streets here were never crowded which we loved....More

Just spent five nights in this hotel, quiet en-suite double room (no. 111), exceptionally pleasant staff and lovely garden (with cat!). It's about 300 yards from the 'waterbus' stop and there are some lovely restaurants nearby. Will certainly stay here again if visiting Venice.
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.
