My short stay at the Belle Epoque was pleasant, the breakfast buffet was good in its variety, and it was very enjoyable to receive cuppucino along w the pastries. I felt personally that the hotel staff could afford to be a little more friendly, I...More

We stayed here July 2012. We were coming in and going out of the train station and this is literally right beside it - 50 meter walk so very convenient.
Lovely decor in the reception area. En suite was very nice. Decor is old...More
I like to stay in hotels that are near the main train stations in Europe and this is one of them.
The hotel has a nice sun-lit lobby area and a glass elevator - nice touch for a 3-star hotel. The room I stayed in...More
This hotel was clean and close to the train station. The rooms were descent size although our bathroom was very small, not surprising for a city hotel. The staff was not very friendly, it seemed like we were bothering the front desk with questions. When...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.

Hope you get this in time (3/9/17) We found the glass bridge from Piazza del Roma quite a challenge for two 61 yearolds with large luggage but we managed it.If you arrive by train you will be on the right side of the canal anyway.We did the same as you and arrived a day early as it was our first cruise and did not want to "miss the boat" (ship) As it was our 40th wedding anniversary it was nice to spend the day and a half in Venice as we arrived there about 11am.So in answer to your question,as we had a whole day and a half we purchased 2 x24 hr vaparetto tickets (Eu20 each which is cheaper for multiple stops) at about 1-30pm to see the sights,this then gave us about an hour vaperetto time at 12-30 the next day to catch the short hop to the Del Roma vaperetto station avoiding the glass bridge.From there we took a short walk across the bus station to the people mover to get to the port.The ticket machine takes cards but to be sure have the Eu1-50 x 2 if I were you.Its then a good walk into the port its so vast,takes about 10 mins.Hope this helps.
No I'm pretty sure there wasn't. Hotels in Italy don't usually have tea/coffee making facilities, something to do with safety I think. Its a really nice hotel, and in a great position for walking around Venice.
