Stayed here in July 2014 mainly due to the high number of excellent reviews on here.
The room was nice, we were able to check in early, the breakfast was OK, room was fully cleaned each day - new towels etc. Free wifi too although...More
We were both happy with our very recent stay here. The hotel was nice and quiet and away from the crowds. The room and bathroom were very adequate. Clean etc. the breakfast was disappointing for me as it was only basic: cereal and toast. The...More
Many of our traveling friends warned my husband and I about Venice-- they said it was too touristy, busy, we would run out of things to do on a 3 day stay, blah blah blah. But I have to say that choosing to stay at...More
I didn't stay at this hotel--but bear with me! I planned to stay there but had to cancel. Although the clear policy was that I lose a significant deposit (which I understood), not only did they not charge me, but they also went above and...More
My husband and I stayed in one of their apartments in the 2nd week of June. The location is in a far less touristy and hectic part of Venice where better food and quality of service is easier to find. It was lovely to retreat...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.

NO. You cannot drive into Venice beyond the car park at the end of the bridge from Mestre. If you drive and park in that car park, which I understand is very expensive, you'll then have to take a water bus or water transport... More
NO. You cannot drive into Venice beyond the car park at the end of the bridge from Mestre. If you drive and park in that car park, which I understand is very expensive, you'll then have to take a water bus or water transport of some sort to get to anyplace in Venice, including Ca' Fontanea Hotel.

Hi, I am sorry but I have no answer for that as I get to Venice by train and not by flight. Eventually try to look for a boat heading to Venice train station and from there it is only 10 minutes walk. If the new Ponte delle Vacche is open - on the right side of the station, right behind - it is really 5 minutes!
Any further help do not hesitate to contact me. Enjoy Venice. Too beautiful to be true!
