Wow!!! Wow!!! Wow!!! We felt like royals in this beautiful hotel. Surrounded by friendly staff, the most beautiful furniture, gardens and the canals of Venice this was my favorite hotel during our 3 week tour through Italy. The rooms are very spacious and every room...More
A beautiful place in front of the lagoon. Super large room. Good breakfast. And a spectacular place in front of the lagoon. Super friendly employees. I plan to return again I recommend it. Near everything. Access by water taxi.
This is a former palace of a Doge started in the 1400s. It is now an upscale hotel. A good breakfast is included. The front desk staff were very nice and helpful.
Because it's a converted palace some of the rooms have an unusual layout....More
Great location right on the Grand Canal and at a vaparetto stop. We had a room with four little balconies looking out over the Grand Canal. The room was huge. It was very quiet. The only criticisms are that the spa didn’t work, someone came...More
This is a great hotel will lovely rooms and great location over looking the Grand Canal I would have rated 5 stars but for the terrible breakfast shame this lets the hotel down would definitely stay again hopefully they will sort the breakfast out

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.

Agree with mazehussa - the shuttle is the quickest way into Venice from Trevisio - you can also try the train but you will have to change. Once at the bus station the hotel is very walkable - or you can catch the water bus... More

When you come out from the arrival, on the left there should be a counter for bus tickets. You want the Express Bus for Piazzale Roma. The counter people should be able to give you direction. Then when you arrive then go to the Grand Canal, then you take the line number 1 ferry to Ca D'Oro station. The hotel is right next to the station. Or you can take water taxi. Enjoy!
