By booking a room at your hotel I was expecting, as advertised, a 4 star accommodation with 4 star comfort and 4 star service. I received none of this.
I would like to detail the events that occurred during my stay in order for you...More
This hotel was a real surprise for us. The history of the building and the frescos in our Junior Suite with canal view made us feel like we were living a few hundred years ago. The breakfast was very adequate and the hotel size meant...More
Overall we were very happy with our stay but there are a few points that I would like to raise as constructive criticism.

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.
No Sure but there were people smoking out side so i guess this will not be an issue.
If you stay in the hotel then try to stay in the large room with the balcony just above the entrace, it is beautiful
