We recently stayed at this lovely hotel. It is very conveniently located just steps from the train station making arriving by train with luggage and 3 kids a breeze. Since Venice is so small and walk-able we were able to check in and walk clear...More
This hotel is very conveniently located. Found it the first time. Just 3 min from the train station. The desk manager was really helpful and even assigned an usher to lead the way. The room was very spacious and the toilet extraordinary. The whole family...More
My husband and I recently spent three days in Venice and stayed in this lovely, charming hotel, formerly a monastery. This hotel is perfectly situated since it is very, very close to the train station, and we had travelled by high speed train from Florence...More
A wonderful old monastery that is within walking distance to everything you can want in Venice. The staff was friendly and very helpful, the accommodations where excellent. The courtyard was serene and to hear the bells was a wonderful experience. I would stay there again...More
Beautiful, historic hotel with an exceptionally gracious, helpful staff! Perfect location close to train and bus station. Our room was spacious and clean with really nice amenities. Thank you Rafael for all your help and great conversation!
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.

From Hotel Abbazia come out the front door, turn right and walk to the end of the building. Turn right again and walk about 1 city block past the train station and over the bridge. You can see the building with the Avis office on the right hand side. Walk to the other side of the building and there is "People Mover" (train) that costs 1.5 euro and takes you right to the dock. Fast, close and comfortable. A very short walk.
