I am amazed that Archie's is still in business and that it hasn't it been closed down for health issues. When I stayed in 1988 I had to put coins into a machine to get a few minutes of luke warm water for a shower......More
We stayed for one night only and we had experience of true Medieval Venice.Warm running water & kitchen facilities were absent, as well as a proper working reception. Only one bedsheet is provided (you have to pay for the extra one). The bedroom is crawling...More
This is probably the cheapest accomodation in the centre of Venice. I didn't mind a concept of a shared bathroom or a super basic equipment of the room. But come on, it was so disgustingly dirty everywhere that it was almost on a brink of...More
Everything is horrible, since you enter until you leave. Don't be mistaken with the images you see because they aren't updated in a while, believe me.

I stayed in Archie's House for one night, just because I missed the last train to Milan and needed an emergency accomodation on a very tight budget.

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.
