"Quieter area of Venice."
Hotel was clean and comfortable but not much ambience. Staff, while trying to be helpful did not have their facts correct.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Had a Good Stay"
OVERALL COMMENT: - Nice, clean, quiet no-nonsense hotel. THE GOOD: - Very friendly reception - provided a map and some great advice on local eats and sites upon arrival. - Very trustworthy staff! We had inadvertently left our laptop in the terrace one evening (and didn't realise until the next morning). Staff had spotted it and kindly left it with […] reception. - Our double room was clean, spacious and a pleasure to stay in. - This place is away from the touristy area so you get your peace and quiet and experience more of the local Venice. Travel to touristy spots is via an easy walk or boat trip (depending on where you want to go). ANY DOWNSIDES? - Finding the hotel was a bit of a pain. At the time of writing, the Google Maps location was not exactly correct for this hotel (was a few streets off). Best to confirm how to get their with the hotel beforehand. - Although the breakfast itself wasn't too bad, when a particular food runs out, can sometimes take the staff a while to refill it.

"Good hotel quiet but close to facilities"
Very helpful and friendly staff, had a free upgrade. Only breakfast facilities but lots of good places to eat close by.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Hidden Gem"
The hotel is located in a quiet residential area but is still a close walk to all the sites. We found the room to be very spacious especially with the bedroom upstairs. There was also a pull out on the main floor so slept everyone with plenty of room to spare. They also had free internet which is also a plus with the kids. The breakfast buffet had lots […] to select from and the coffee choices were great. Staff were very courteous and answered all questions quickly. We were quite early for check-in but they took our luggage into storage and we enjoyed the breakfast and then toured Venice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Definitely not a 4 star hotel"
Rooms could be called 'atmospheric' but the lighting was very poor. Had to sit in the bathroom to sew a hem up! Chair was too low for desk and hooks and hanging rails were much too high! You needed to be 6ft to reach. Couldn't get a cup of tea or coffee in the afternoon? Got given a kettle and cups???? No sign of a cafe.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable hotel in interesting location."
Enjoyed stay at comfortable quiet hotel in convenient location in part of Venice which I like. Staff and reception were friendly and helpful, with a bar open until fairly late (one complimentary drink available). It was possible to go out for both a drink and a meal in the evenings without walking very far, and to exercise some choice. It was annoying […] that that there was no English newspaper (these are not easy to buy in Venice) in reception, although French, American, German and Spanish, as well as Italian, were all there. Breakfast was mediocre and overpriced (as is common in Italian hotels) and the coffee machine ought to be a source of shame to both its manufacturers and the hotel.

"Very peaceful hotel."
Mostly a very enjoyable stay though our first room (a double) was below par with a badly leaking shower panel over the bath and a broken hairdrier. We could also hear the person snoring in the next room! However, we then paid for an upgrade to the junior suite which was amazing...spacious and everything worked perfectly! Breakfast, self-service, was […] more than adequate in terms of variety and quantity but a shame the coffee and tea came out of a machine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent value and spacious suite"
Spacious 2-level suite overlooking the canal. Perfectly fine for a base when visiting Venice. In a quiet neighbourhood away from the noisy crowds but close enough - and with some excellent osterias near by. Hotel staff were extremely helpful, and complimentary drink in the bar was very welcome.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel out of the main tourist area"
This hotel was great, a converted monastry, around a half hour walk to St Marks Square along the canals. Some great local restaurants and bars at much cheaper prices than the square. Very clean split level room, only criticism is very hot at night, even when the heat was switched off with the windows open, and this was in October! Close to water bus […] stops to go via the canals to Rialto or St Marks. Woulddefinitely stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel in peaceful location."
A very clean and comfortable hotel. Quiet location yet still not far from anywhere. Very useful supermarket just around the corner. Generous breakfast in spacious room with lots of variety. Very nice courtyard running through middle of hotel plus a nice little bar.Staff were helpful and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely […] return.

"Nice and quiet. If a better map was available."
Liked hotel. Good breakfast. Hard to find when coming in. Far from center of city. If you like to walk , no problem. Room was clean and roomy. Would of preferred bar was open earlier.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely hotel in quiet area but too far from centre"
Although very pleasant it was disappointing as no restaurant and no coffe/tea making facilities in room. Shower not good and room temperature not regulated very well. No window but skylights didn't compensate for this. Also TV very old and not sited very well I room!Genuine Expedia guest review
Well located for 4 & 5 line Vaporetto boats and Aliliguna Orange line which goes to airport. Rooms clean but a little 'basic'.Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice quiet location close to waterbus"
very friendly staff and clean rooms with dining area outside if required which was nice to use at breakfast timeGenuine Expedia guest review
"In the not so touristy part of Venice"
Hotel is totally fine, nothing special, but then not expensive for venice. Best thing about the hotel is its close proximity to local cicchetti bars which offer up great nipples and drinks at local prices (not rubbishy tourist places :)) Ask the barman for directions, he'll give you a few options. Had a simply delightful 1kg florence style T-bone and […] roasted veg in a nearby eatery...a must for meat lovers. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel in good location, quiet neighbourhood."
Pleasant Hotel in quiet area of Venice, easy and quick transfer from airport by shared water taxi. Hotel close to 3 Vaparetto stops and within easy walking distance of excellent restaurants and bars. Also close to market and shops. English widely spoken but attempt at Italian much appreciated.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice hotel with helpful staff, comfortable, and an excellent breakfast. The only thing missing for me was tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Overall very happy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would go back"
We were glad we chose this hotel. We wanted one fairly near the station and cruise terminal, quiet and not too pricy. Realistically it is an hour or more slow meandering to St Mark's square, though only half an hour back by Vaporetta. It's very near the Ghetto, and intersting place in its own right, and close to plenty of good, reasonably priced restaurants. […] In the end we got a water taxi from the airport to the hotel back door, and from there to the terminal (each journey about 120 euros for five of us with luggage, but we all felt it worth the price given the heat). The hotel itself was exactly what we wanted - comfortable, friendly, clean, quiet, good breakfast, easy. Good base for exploring Venice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for anyone"
I had a twin room with my daughter and it was clean and comfortable. The buffet breakfast was great - good selection and quality. The staff were helpful and friendly. The air con was essential as we stayed in July. Slightly noisy but worth it for the coolness. The hotel is well situated if you want to be off the main tourist area. Cannaregio is a […] lovely area with it's own identity with plenty of places to eat and drink. The water bus stop is very close so you can get around very easily. It is particularly convenient for trips to Murano. I would love to go back to Venice and would aim to stay at this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Pros: Good quiet location away from the busy main streets, with some very good local restaurants on the doorstep. Cons: Not a 4* hotel, think Travelodge quality inserted into a quirky warehouse style room. Gloomy dark furnishings. Poor quality bathroom, noisy air conditioning.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is in a nice quiet location. There is a drinking water fountain just down the road which is a god send in the hot weather and there was a choice of restaurants within easy walking distance. The staff were all friendly and efficient. Everything worked as it should do. We were pleased that we'd opted to include breakfast because the choice and […] quality of the food was good and we didn't see anywhere else that offered such a wide selection for such a reasonable price. There was some crumbly paintwork in the bathroom but that didn't detract from our stay in anyway, it just looked a little shabby. We would have liked more pillows, but in all fairness to the hotel, we didn't ask, we are used to staying in places that automatically supply them. We would stay there again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very comfortable stay"
Clean and comfortable room, excellent service, good breakfast. Very happy to have been recommended this place, close to the vaporetto and some excellent restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The warm retreat"
We were pleasantly surprised by the space in the room unlike what you would find in most local hotels. The hotel staff were attentive to our needs. The one problem with the stay is that our two rooms booked did not have effective air-conditioning and the temperature was much too warm for our liking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Full of character"
The hotel is situated in a quiet neighbourhood, but within reach of all the major sites. It is full of character and the hotel staff were most helpful. Given its location and reasonable rates, we would strongly recommend this hotel to those preferring a more quiet environment.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great hotel for the more adventurous."
Excellent. hotel tucked nicely away from the more touristy areas which gave us more of an incentive to explore the the surrounding area as well as the main area's. Some nice little bars and restaurants wthin 5 minutes walk which are reasonable priced.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A wonderful oasis of peace and quiet."
Very welcoming staff all round and very helpful with suggestions for local amenities and trips.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable hotel in quiet locale"
Good quieter location to come back to after busy days out exploring Venice. Well situated for vaporetto stops and also some good local restaurants. Hotel staff very helpful. Hotel characterful but sadly, our room smaller than that enjoyed by the friends accompanying us. Otherwise results would have been 5 out of 5!Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location in a residential neighbourhood with plenty of excellent litlle restaurants nearby . 10 mins from Madonna D'el orte vaporetto stop and 25 mins walk to Plaza San Marco - 15-20 mins to Rialto . Buffet breakfast had plenty of choices . Only "problem " was air conditionning/heat didn't work properly and some noise from hallway - otherwise […] great room.

it was an oasis of calm when returning from the An oasis of calm after the Grand Canal and all the tourists Pleasant staff and great facilities wonderful breakfasts would recommend it to friends grand Canal areas of VeniceGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good for family"
Very pleased with everything. Was slightly out of the way but this suited us as it was quiet at night. Staff were helpful and are sending my son his phone after he left it at reception on our departure . Good sized family room with canal view. Breakfast was good although for last 2 data there was no Nutella or hot chocolate for my sons. Good choice […] otherwise. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Peaceful in Venice!"
This wonderful hotel - a stylish and modern update of an old monastery - is tucked away in a far corner of Venice's Cannaregio sestiere. It's a hike from the tourist attractions, which means you'll enjoy a quiet neighborhood where Venetian life carries on at a much more serene pace. Overlooking a quiet canal, laid out around landscaped gardens, the […] Residenza offers rooms with wood-beamed ceilings and attractive contemporary design. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just go for it!"
Great choice-the location is outstanding (20mins walking from town centre and 20 mins from airport via the boat). Also good for those who want to go in Venice in order to appreciate the culture of the city without being surrounded all the time by crowds of tourists. Ignore the negative reviews-going there with a positive attitude and with the intention […] to explore the Italian/venetian cultures (rather than to drink tea and watch BBC or to have long baths...) is what you need in order to have a great time in one of my favourite parts of Venice Staff very friendly, canal-view room and breakfast good value for money, the building and neighbourhood have a true character-could not be much more satisfied Seriously just go for it!

"Good value hotel but be long walk to Rialto etc"
Good value hotel in outer Cannareggio but with Vaparetto station at Santa Avise just three minutes walk. Breakfast very poor quality with possibly the worst coffee in Venice. Having said that, it's a very peaceful location and it benefits from being far removed from the main tourist areas.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel, fabulous service!"
Very nice and comfortable hotel right on the canal. You can take a water taxi to the door which was very convenient. The architecture was superb. The breakfast was delicious and had very diverse choices to suit all tastes. The staff - all of them - day or night- were helpful, attentive and extremely professional. We had a wonderful stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fun time with friends"
My friends and I had a lovely time at the hotel. It suited us perfectly. The room was spacious and breakfast was yummy. The staff were friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our three nights there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasent Hotel in Cannaregio"
Staff helpful but a quick bite to eat (as we were seriously delayed by bad weather) would have been much appreciated.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were upgraded to a bigger room automatically. Staff were all helpful. Hotel was clean and breakfast was great. Gay friendly.all round great stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Really enjoyed the stay, they didn't have evening meals at the hotel but loved it still.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, ok location"
The hotel was very nice, as was the staff. It is located a bit far from all of the excitement, but if you don't mind a good walk then that is ok. The breakfast was a bit expensive but the closet cafe was about two "blocks" away and a pedestrian bridge away. The give you a free water taxi to see a murano glass shop in Murano, but then you have to find […] your own way back since we made a large purchase they gave us a free water taxi ride back to Venice.

"Value for your money"
good Hotel , just need to have some kind of entertainment . simple things like a pool table or anything of that sort . secondly it would of been very good if they servered food. Finally , need to install internet in the rooms as you only have it in the reception area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Homely but lacked a restaurant."
Very nice and homely hotel and rooms. Lack of a restaurant was a tad frustrating. Wifi available in lobby but not in rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Super hotel, great value"
Lovely hotel off the beaten track to give a feel of the 'real venice'. Clean, tidy, functional and well maintained. The only issue was there were no tea or coffee making facilities in the room itself. Whilst not a major issue, it would have been nice to have. The location means you have the opportuity to walk and explore Venice. Rialto Bridge is an […] easy 20 minute walk past shops, cafes and markets. St Marks square a further 10-15 minutes stroll. The hotel doesnt offer the luxury of some of those on the Grand Canal but the money saved means you can splash out on other Venetian experiences. I would have no issue recommending this hotel, a fabulous stay, lovely helpful staff and a great breakfast each morning!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great service. Good location. 20 mins from Rialto bridge. Downside was that there was no tea or coffee making facility, no iron and no room AC. Far too hot for two young kids!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would definately stay here again."
In a quiet residential location away from the hussle and bustle. Nice escape at the end of the day. Very close to the Vaparetto at St Alvise. Unfortuanetely we had to move rooms on the 2nd night as we were near the reception and suitcase wheels on marble can be LOUD. No problems with the move request. Breakfast at the hotel was superb, cooked or continental […] and as much as you needed to set you up for the day. would definately stay here again and would reccomend it if you want some peace and quiet at the end of a busy day in the tourist areas. Could offer a Wellington Boot service when the tides are very high, fortunately we had purchased some and could get out but other guests were stuck one morning as the whole are was under 6 to 8 inches of water.

"Ideal weekend break venue"
We enjoyed a great weekend in Venice and found the hotel to be excellent. The value for money exceeded expectations. Staff were always around to help with questions and info also by email before we arrived. The breakfast buffet was a great start to the day with plenty of choice. All the food was good quality and regularly topped up! We found our room […] very comfortable and the bathroom was everything you'd want in an en-suite. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for a getaway"
The hotel was lovely. It is about 30 mins walk from st marks square but this was great as it made us walk through some areas of Venice we wouldn't have otherwise explored. My only critisim of the room was that we has a room in the attic so no view! Breakfast was delicious. We had a free drink on the evening of our arrival and were supplied with a map […] to help us navigate the city. We had a great holiday. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very happy with our choice of hotel"
We were very pleased with this hotel. The hotel is in a very good position, only a few minutes away from the nearest waterbus stop of S.Alvise, only a few stops from the bus and train station stops. In daylight and with a good map it's probably nearly as quick to walk to the Rialto Bridge and Saint Mark's Square as it would be to ride on the waterbus. […] The S.Alvise waterbus stop is very convenient for visiting the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello. We bought a 7 day travel ticket with the journey from the airport to Venice for 54 euros each and were able to make good use of it. You get 7 days from the time you first use the ticket. There are plenty of reasonably priced restaurants within a few minutes walk of the hotel. The Reception staff and Breafast Room staff were extremely helpful. The room was cleaned to a high standard although there were some marks on the curtains. We were concerned about the air conditioning having read reviews posted earlier in the year, but can report that it worked very well. Breakfast was available from 7.30 - 11 am. There was a very good buffet of hot and cold, sweet and savoury items. We would be very happy to return to this hotel and would certainly recommend it to others. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good value, considering its Venice"
Venice is always expensive and this hotel is expensive considering its quality of fittings. However, it is in a nice building and is value for money considering its Venice.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was our third stay in this hotel and little has changed since we were last here four years ago. The staff are still friendly and helpful, the rooms quite large by Venetian standards and the breakfasts are substantial. As other reviewers have pointed out, the hotel is in a superb location near to good bars and restaurants, and far enough off the […] main tourist trail to give a taste of "real" Venice. We will be back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
