Al Palazzetto

$$ | Cannaregio 4057, Venice, 30121, Italy

Understated Venetian decor, original exposed-beam ceilings and terrazzo flooring, and large rooms suitable for families or small groups are hallmarks of this intimate, family-owned guesthouse. Guest rooms overlooking tranquil side canals are the best in terms of size and view. The spacious common salon overlooks the Rio San Sofia. The location is serene, but only a short street away from the main Cannaregio thoroughfare (Strada Nova), the Ca' d'Oro vaporetto stop, the traghetto across to the Rialto Market, and the San Marco area. Al Palazzetto is also good for small groups or families, as there are triple and quad rooms; some are connecting. Spring for the attic suite if it's available.

Pros

  • Authentic 18th-century palace
  • Clean and quiet
  • Good value

Cons

  • Old-fashioned decor
  • Not many amenities
  • A bit rough around the edges

Ca' Gottardi

$$$ | Cannaregio 2283, Venice, 30121, Italy
Federico Beccari | Unsplash

Traditional Venetian style mixes with contemporary design: the clean white-marble entrance leading up to the luminous piano nobile (main floor) of the 15th-century palace gracefully contrasts with the opulent Murano chandeliers and rich wall brocades. Some rooms have canal views, bathrooms are large and modern, and a rich breakfast is served in a bright salon that overlooks a wide canal. The location, just off the Grand Canal near the Ca' d'Oro and a variety of good restaurants, is another plus. Confirm the type of room (suite or standard, with or without a view) and its location (in the annex or the main hotel) when booking.

Pros

  • Great location
  • Alluring mix of old and new
  • Canal views

Cons

  • No outdoor garden or terrace
  • Sometimes there's noise outside
  • Standard rooms are quite small

Ca' Sagredo Hotel

$$$ | Cannaregio 4198/99, Venice, 30121, Italy
https://www.facebook.com/casagredohotel/

This expansive palace has been the Sagredo family residence since the mid-1600s and has the decor to prove it: a massive staircase has Longhi wall panels soaring above it; large common areas are adorned with original art by Tiepolo, Longhi, and Ricci; and a traditional Venetian style dominates guest rooms, many of which have canal views and some of which have original art and architectural elements. Flooring might be Venetian terrazzo, wood parquet, or plush carpeting; one suite even offers a private rooftop balcony. Although the hotel website advertises antique furniture, most of the pieces are good modern copies—but there's no doubt about the 18th-century Venetian paintings.

Pros

  • Excellent location
  • Some of the city's best preserved interiors
  • Rooftop terrace and indoor bar

Cons

  • More opulent than intimate
  • Heat in rooms controlled by front desk
  • No coffee- or tea-making facilities in rooms

Hotel ai Mori d'Oriente

$$ | Cannaregio 3319, Venice, 30121, Italy
https://www.facebook.com/aimoridorientehotel/

Though the atmosphere harkens back to Venice's connection with the Silk Road, the surroundings and amenities are everything you'd expect from a 21st-century establishment, and the staff is highly accommodating. Some rooms and suites overlook the expansive canal along the Fondamenta della Sensa, one of the bright, broad byways typical of the upper Cannaregio district. In good weather, you can also take breakfast or a Venetian spritz cocktail at a sunny table along the canal. Ask about the type and location of room you're reserving when booking; rooms overlooking the canal are especially pleasant.

Pros

  • Quiet area
  • Canal-side bar for breakfast or cocktails
  • Tintoretto's district

Cons

  • Perhaps too quiet for some
  • Patchy AC
  • Pricey bar

Hotel Antico Doge

$$$ | Cannaregio 5643, Venice, 30121, Italy

Once the home of Marino Faliero, a 14th-century doge who was executed for treason, this palazzo has been attentively "modernized" in elegant 18th-century Venetian style: all rooms are adorned with brocades, damask-tufted walls, gilt mirrors, and parquet floors—even the breakfast room has a stuccoed ceiling and Murano chandelier. Some guest rooms have baldacchini (canopied beds) and courtyard views; the suite and two superior rooms have canal views. The location, on the main thoroughfare from the station to San Marco, is handy but can stay quite lively well into the night, especially during festivals. An ample buffet breakfast is served.

Pros

  • Romantic, atmospheric decor
  • Convenient to the Rialto and beyond
  • Some rooms have whirlpool tubs

Cons

  • No outdoor garden or terrace
  • No elevator
  • Area outside hotel can get very busy

https://www.facebook.com/palazzoabadessa/

At this late-16th-century palazzo, you can experience warm hospitality, a luxurious atmosphere, a lush private garden, and unusually spacious guest rooms well appointed with antique-style furniture, frescoed or stuccoed ceilings, and silk fabrics.
