Upon entering the hotel lobby, a strong pungent smell is immediately noticeable. The rooms have an old European style (which is nice to look at). The bathroom though also has a rat smell. The towels were extremely thin. There was also a chewed up chunk...More
I just have good things to say about Hotel Principe.
First of all it has a fantastic location close to Santa Lucia station 200-300m, it save us to walk in Venice caring our luggages. It`s situated in a street full of restaurants and shopping, if...More
Giving a 2 Star for - it being very accessible and right by the canal, with a great view. Plus it’s quite affordable so, stay only if you absolutely have to.
Service is APPALLING. For a hotel that proudly displays its 4 stars, it acts...More
Arrived early December 2017 to this really lovely hotel. Just a short walk from the station, so very easy access - no porters or water taxis needed. It overlooks the Grand Canal - on the sunny side! There is a good relaxing water front terrace...More
We stayed here a few nights while on a tour of Italy w/ a larger group. The hotel is located right on the grand canal, and has a great location. About a 40 min walk from St. Mark's square, but a great walk! lots 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.

We stayed way up on the roof line. Had 5 windows all with different views. Bathroom was best. With view of St marks square in the distance and could see the cruise liners arriving in the morning. Probably not worth upgrading... More
We stayed way up on the roof line. Had 5 windows all with different views. Bathroom was best. With view of St marks square in the distance and could see the cruise liners arriving in the morning. Probably not worth upgrading to canal view as it will be dark early and most of the time you will be out and about. Enjoy your stay.
Hi, that's not a problem - we had exactly the same predicament and our room wasn't ready on arrival - the hotel reception securely and without fuss stored our bags and we went off exploring, though we were given the option... More
Hi, that's not a problem - we had exactly the same predicament and our room wasn't ready on arrival - the hotel reception securely and without fuss stored our bags and we went off exploring, though we were given the option of lunch on the terrace. Enjoy Venice and I'm sure you will like the Principe.
