What a great hotel. Just a few hundred metres from the station and bus station down a quiet alleyway. Staff very helpful. Room excellent and rates very reasonable and includes breakfast.
One of the best city break hotels we have used.
Easy 50m distance access...More
We booked this hotel partly on a recomendation in lonely planet and partly from reviews on this site. The hotel is a haven of peace and quiet. The lounge bar is an excellent place to relax after a busy day. Our room (Superior double) was...More
We stayed at the Hotel Abbazia on 3/5/07 & 3/6/07. I must say that the Hotel was a lovely budget option. Yes, you do have to walk down an alley to get there, but it is well worth it. The staff was wonderful & fluent...More
I loved everything about Hotel Abbazia: the friendly and helpful front desk staff, the breakfast, the room and the hotel's convenience

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.

It depends upon how you are arriving. If by train, porters are readily available around the station, and I understand are relatively inexpensive (negotiate first). The hotel is one short block away, so not a long trip. If you are coming by boat, try to get to the train station piers.

The hotel is very close to the cruise port. The building across the street from the train station (look for Avis sign and then go past to the other side of the building) has a aerial shuttle station that charges 1 Euro (I think) and it whisks you right out to the ships.
