If you arrive at the Residenza you might get a slight idea how the old the monks lived here, although you need quite a rich fantasy as the modern amenities are an absolute luxury compared to those days. The hotel Residenza Cannagregio is located in a very relaxed and relatively quiet sestieri compared the other sestieri , that you find in Venice The hotel is located close to the Jewish neighbourhood. The sestieri Cannaregio offers a great surrounding with lovely taverna’s, trattorias and osterias for reasonable prices. It is tranquil, but lively enough not to be bored. Additional around your hotel you can find little markets (ask for the days at reception) little art studios and small book shops.
The hotel is located on the outer edge of Cannaregio just a few minutes walk from San Alvise. Take note when there are extreme tides in Venice, the vaporetto/water bus does not serve this stop, the best route is to walk in from San Marculo on the Grand Canal. The water bus stop San Alvise offers fast connections to the train station and the parking area Piazzale Roma.
In 15 minutes you walk to the Rialto bridge, dividing the districts of San Marco and San Polo. And 25 minutes walking to the San Marco square.
The hotel offers a lovely modern interioir design with comfortable facilities and amenities. The garden of the monastery has been converted to a lovely courtyard where you can enjoy the bars service for a light snack, a drink and in the morning your breakfast. The front of Residenza Cannageregio is litteraly located at the canal, so it easy taking a watertaxi to any location in Venice from there.
