Wonderful 3 star hotel in the Cannaregio, Fondamente Nove district of Venice.(actually 2 sites, main hotel and an annex called Piccolo Vecellio not on the water. Vaporettos stop right in front of hotel for transport to Train Station, Grand Canal, Murano Island or St Mark's square etc. (cheap, inexpensive travel) Excellent staff, good breakfast included. Husband was in wheelchair so we had first floor room next to reception area, facing lagoon and vaporetto stop--very quiet! Room was decorated in Venetian style--very charming---good sized room and decent sized bathroom. Very clean. Unknown if elevator available (I did not see one). Satellite TV but no English channels/programs broadcast. No dvd. Brochure says internet available but we did not use it. Bed very comfortable. Excellent restaurant called "Da Alvise" is a couple of buildings down from hotel. Within easy walk to St Mark's square, Rialto Bridge . Long alley-type walks, many bridges that could be problem for handicapped or limited mobility (recommend getting a hotel on the Grand Canal to them)( Also there is a handicap accessible map of Venice on the internet) Felt completely safe. Getting to a hospital is a problem since the hospital is on the other side of Venice from this hotel and person must go by some type of boat transport to get there (vaporetto/water taxi/motoscafo) We would stay here again--very enjoyable and relaxing
