The bedroom opened on to the breakfast room where the coffee and tea machines were filled from water from the nearby toilet.

The room was basic: very small but clean, as was the attached bathroom which included shower only. The hotel is located in a small side street allowing for a quiet nights sleep. The breakfast room was also small, but the food provided was more than sufficient: cold cuts and cheese, croissants, fruit cocktail, yogourt, cereal, milk, cookies, crackers, coffee, tea...

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
Cannaregio
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.
