Stayed at the Ca’Fontanea for two nights 20th – 22nd May 2014 and what a gem of a place to stay! Situated in the heart of the “real” Venice close to, but a world away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist trail. Ca’Fontanea offers rooms in an oasis of quiet serenity. This is a place so quiet where...

We arrived at dusk and at first were a little concerned on the area (2 women friends traveling). I knew it would be confusing to locate Ca Fontanea based on other reviews and luckily my GPS was working that evening along with the directions provided to me prior to my arrival. In the morning we were DELIGHTED on the location...

First of all the desk man (didn't get his name) was really helpful. He let me print my boarding passes, told me where to buy a new memory card for my camera or where to look for guided tours for the islands... 5* really! Then the accommodation was really comfortable and clean... you can't ask for much more! You have...

We booked the top floor apartment in the annex (separate building/entrance next to the main hotel). No lift but the 2 flights of stairs were worth the very spacious tasteful apartment. Great lounge, well stocked kitchen, good bathroom facilities. Two balconies (with a clothes drying rack, if needed) - ideal for relaxing and for smokers. Lots of Mosquitos (which is...

This hotel is the best option if you are searching a quiet, elegant, cosy place to stay. It is located in an area where nearly no tourists are, no noise, the breakfast was good and the room + bathroom where really comfortable. Since you are in Venice, there are a lot of mosquitos so knowing that, go prepared with one...

We travelled through France and Italy recently and Ca'Fontanea was by far my favourite accomodation. The detailed directions provided were excellent and allowed us to find our way easily from the airport. After staying in a few tiny rooms, the size of the room was much appreciated. Both the room and the bathroom were spotless. The location in a quiet...

My sister and I stayed here for 2 nights in April 2014. The location was perfect- as it was not in the main busy tourist areas and also gave us a chance to see the less 'touristy' part of Venice. As Venice is small, it is still easy to walk to all attractions. Judging by the other reviews, the experience...

When you check in to a B&B you expect a different type of service than a normal hotel. But when it comes to Venice many of us are just trying to find an affordable accommodation. Thats the only need this place fulfils. Why do I say that? Well because my experience wasnt all that great. 1. We stayed 2 nights....

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights over the October 2013 half term and were able to leave our children with parents. The hotel is in a very quiet location, not too far from the Jewish quarter. There are two Vaporetto 'stations' close by, so travel around Venice is reasonably easy to do - however we found that...

Don't be lured into staying in a pricy hotel when this little gem is available. The vaporetto system is perfect for getting you where ever you need to go so no need for staying in the center of the city and paying more to get less. We stayed in the small apartment that is detached from the main B&B. It...

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.

“We went in late October and opening a window was enough for us on the air - otherwise, I cannot be sure about the A/C situation. Ours was up the stairs and to the right. Could hear neighbors one night but if everyone keeps it down a little - it is no big deal. (remember, people can hear you if you are yelling at your boyfriend...) : )”
