very close to train station. As we stayed for just 1 night in venice, this was very helpful. The room was clean, bathroom was pretty big and roomy. Room decor was little opulent, but hey its venice, that's expected. Neighborhood was okay, felt a little...More
The best thing about hotel that is very close to train station. It's especially important becasue there is no any ground transportaion in Venice, you can use water taxi or bus (vaporetto) but it way more convenient to walk less than 5 minutes to the...More
I stayed here just one night and choose this hotel because of it’s location near the train station and the main vaporetto docks. Reception was straightforward, with documents and payment, informative but not particularly friendly as noted by most reviewers. We were given the key...More
PROS: It was right near the train station, so easy to go and drop our bags off and then head out into Venice. It had air conditioning and the breakfast was quite nice. Rooms were a little dated but its been that way in every...More
My daugter and I recently stayed here for two nights August 23-25,2011 - since this hotel was close to the train station and the reviews were good except for reviews regarding the reception staff, but I decided to give the hotel staff the benefit of...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.

Hope you get this in time (3/9/17) We found the glass bridge from Piazza del Roma quite a challenge for two 61 yearolds with large luggage but we managed it.If you arrive by train you will be on the right side of the canal anyway.We did the same as you and arrived a day early as it was our first cruise and did not want to "miss the boat" (ship) As it was our 40th wedding anniversary it was nice to spend the day and a half in Venice as we arrived there about 11am.So in answer to your question,as we had a whole day and a half we purchased 2 x24 hr vaparetto tickets (Eu20 each which is cheaper for multiple stops) at about 1-30pm to see the sights,this then gave us about an hour vaperetto time at 12-30 the next day to catch the short hop to the Del Roma vaperetto station avoiding the glass bridge.From there we took a short walk across the bus station to the people mover to get to the port.The ticket machine takes cards but to be sure have the Eu1-50 x 2 if I were you.Its then a good walk into the port its so vast,takes about 10 mins.Hope this helps.
No I'm pretty sure there wasn't. Hotels in Italy don't usually have tea/coffee making facilities, something to do with safety I think. Its a really nice hotel, and in a great position for walking around Venice.
