Profile: Cannaregio

Profile: Cannaregio

Cannaregio, Venice’s northernmost sestiere, is where you’ll find the city’s longest street, Strada Nuova. Running from the train station to the Campo Santi Apostoli near Rialto Bridge, this bustling artery lined with restaurants, stores, gelaterias, and bakeries draws locals and tourists alike.

Venture away from Strada Nuova and its surrounding streets into the north of Cannaregio and you’ll come across some hidden gems—tranquil, picturesque stretches of canals and endearing churches. In this peaceful residential quarter, you’ll also discover authentic Venetian morning markets, neighborhood stores, and small cafés perfect for an afternoon espresso.

  • 8.0.Very good

    This is a very charming small hotel off the beaten track in the Cannaregio district. All the staff are absolutely charming and very helpful. My very spacious bedroom was wonderfully quirky, with a small window opening almost at canal level! Unfortunately I did not feel comfortable leaving this open at night and, with the other larger window too high to reach, I had to have the air conditioning on all night but luckily it was not noisy. The bed was very comfortable but was two single beds pushed together so you have to be careful not to lie in the middle! Everything was very clean, especially the well-equipped bathroom (lovely big bath towels!) and I had no worries about Covid-19. Sadly, this has meant a few of the amenities not being available at the moment, which were not altered on Expedia, such as no tea and coffee facilities in the room and no buffet at breakfast ,with a reduced menu (no fresh fruit offered). Breakfast is served at your table and is a fairly limited selection of cold items plus tea or coffee. However, the Misericordia canalside has many little cafes and shops offering tempting treats. There is also a small supermarket down an alley beside the hotel plus the bigger Despar in Teatro Italia only a few minutes’ walk away so it was easy to fill the empty minibar fridge with a few essentials. In fact, this hotel is admirably placed for walking almost anywhere in Venice in a relatively short time (twenty minutes to the train and bus stations).

    Great stay in a great location

    An amazing location and stay, with very thoughtful and accomodating staff. The building is tucked away in a residential square, allowing a peaceful night's sleep, and the rooms are plenty large enough with all the mod-cons needed for a comfy city stay. The complimentary breakfast is excellent, with views over one of the many canals. The only slight drawback was the number of mosquitos that were present during October, a particularly tricky time as the staff sympathised. They were very helpful in providing tips around the city, tours that you could book from the location and also how to get rid of the bugs! Would stay again, thank you!

  • 6.0.Good

    Unfortunately when we arrived it was a bit warm (70 degrees F or so) and they had apparently turned off all the air conditioning in the building and it couldn't be turned back on (?). We had a room with a lofted bed above a small living area, so it was about 85-90 degrees F up in the bed area. It was very hot and uncomfortable and I ended up sleeping on the loveseat downstairs on our honeymoon! Nice location though, and breakfast was fine (nothing to write home about but good coffee). Bed was not super comfortable.

    Excellent stay!

    Hotel is small but very clean conveniently located and short walk (13 min) from the train station or approx 10 min from Grand Canal, comfortable beds and hosts were very attentive and so helpful at suggesting us places to see and do. They advised to rent gondola away from Grand Canal which was great idea since it was no traffic (yes water traffic) considering that the ride is only 30 min who wants to spend that time trying to navigate between water taxis and other gondolas so we used their advice and rented gondola on the spot during the day in a quiet place it was a great ride. Great experience!

    Great location

    Loved the location. Close to Cannaregio restaurants & bars. But the hotel was quiet. Helpful staff, and a nice breakfast. And only a short walk to the tourist hotspots of Venice.
