There is not enough space or time for me to sufficiently rave about this hotel. I generally spend a lot of my travel planning time trying to choose a good hotel, and more often than not I am pleased, but I don't think I have ever had a more delightful or memorable hotel stay. I would not even consider staying...

Wow, what an experience Matteo and his team provide. The warm and welcoming personalised email that is received at the point of booking is just the start of the 5 star hospitality provided throughout. Nothing is ever too much from restaurant recommendations and bookings, water taxi bookings to local advice on places to visit and routes to take. The breakfast...

This is the #1 hotel in Venice for good reasons; a beautifully restored Palazzo, exceptional staff, and great location! Matteo and everyone on his staff made us feel like honored guests during our entire stay. Each staff member greeted us by name and were very friendly and engaging throughout our stay. David and Romina provided excellent recommendations for dinner and...

We had an amazing time at Al Ponte Antico. The owner (Matteo) and staff were fantastic and just couldn't do enough for us. We stayed in the suite downstairs with our own private terrace overlooking the canal which was beautiful. Thank you, we had such a fantastic weekend made even more special by our stay here.

It would be easy to just list many superlatives to describe this wonderful hotel, but that in itself would not do it, or the fabulous staff justice. From the moment you arrive (by water taxi if you can) Matteo and his team make you feel special. Without exception, every one of the staff go out of their way (very subtly)...

Our visit in Venice was made special by the Staff at Al Ponte. They were the friendliest staff we have come across. The location of the hotel and their patio is perfect for your stay. We loved our visit at Al Ponte Antico.

The entire staff at the Hotel Al Ponte Antico was more than accomodating-- they made us feel like family. The owner Matteo personally greeted us by name upon arrival and showed us the property as well as walked us to our room. Our room was beautiful. Large and very comfortable. We felt like we paid for a suite! Romina at...

This was our second visit since our first in 2009. We are so pleased to say that the wonderful service levels that we had previously are now even better. So attentive, everyone knows your name and can’t do enough to make you feel comfortable and at home. Out fantastic ground floor canal view room has had a makeover recently, it...

After having spent a week in this hotel, I feel lucky with my choice for 3 reasons. The location of the hotel is perfect, especially if you come to Venice for the first time, cause you can be in other parts of the city on foot very quickly. The balcony of the hotel on Gran Canal is the best and...

This was our second time here. It's quite a splurge for us but so worth every cent. The location is all you could ever dream of for your Venice hotel. We stayed in a suite, 2 teenagers and parents, with a window opening onto the canal. It's just so exciting to lean out the window and nearly touch the water...

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
