My wife and I arrived after hours, and as others have mentioned, used the prearranged door code to enter, took procession of our keys and went to our room (#4). It was the fabulous corner room overlooking a canal. The bed was perfect - not...More
We were first impressed by the very good location - we arrived by vaporetto to the Fondamenta Nuove (A) station from the airport. Be sure to make note of which port this is, as our instructions just said 'port A' and so were slightly unclear....More
This hotel has just five rooms and is in a quiet street in the Cannaregio district. Reception is manned until 3pm, after which you access the property with en entry code (emailed in advance) and the keys are waiting for you inside. Everything went smoothly...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.
