After finally ariving at the Palazzo Rosa which is very poorly marked with a peace of paper, I was unable to enter, the number on the door was also just ringing and after more than an hour of waiting a client left the building allowing...More
The hotel is near to everything. From the windows you see the canal in front of hotel. The rooms are big enough. Filippo, who runs the business, is very helpful! The breakfast is ok. So everything is nice!

From the minute we walked in we knew something was wrong as it smelt of stinky cheese. Alerting the staff they said to go for a stroll and they would fix it. On return there was an overwhelming rose scent that made my eyes water....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.
