With the exception of thins walls and noisy neighbors, this was exactly what we wanted which was the bare minimum since we didn't go to Venice to lounge in the room: twin beds with reasonable amount of comfort, bathroom with shower, typical cold continental breakfast, flexible check-in times, luggage hold, steps from train station & water taxi, and cheap rates!

I had spotted this hotel in an idyllic location during a previous trip with friends and decided to treat my husband to a long weekend. What a treat it was. The staff were extremely helpful, attentive but not intrusive. This is a small, very attractively furnished, quality hotel with a small but superbly stocked bar and some outside seating both at the front (canalside) and at the rear in a private garden setting. There is no evening restaurant in the hotel but with the local choices, there was absolutely no need for it.
The Cannaregio district is a residential area, away from the extremely busy main tourist areas, so you can enjoy quiet walks along beautiful canals, dine in fabulous, affordable restaurants frequented mainly by the locals - yet still reach the main canal & river transport by foot in just 5 minutes and also reach the main tourist destinations in just a 15-20 minute picturesque walk from the hotel.
We chose a superior room, which we were delighted with. The breakfast was buffet style and offered an extensive choice of hot and cold food, pastries, cakes etc.
Good location. Close to train station and boat stops. Lots of restaurants nearby. 30 to 40 min walk to StMarks.
Front rooms could potentially be noisy but ours faced the back and was quiet.
Good buffet breakfast, with pots for tea!!
Loved my 4th stay at the Giorgione Hotel. Real old venetian charm. Great location for easy walking to St Marks and Rialto etc, plus plenty of nice bars and restaurants around hotel area. Definitely will return.
"Excellent B&B. Great to do Venice on foot or water"
I can thoroughly recommend Ca' Dogaressa. This was a relatively last-minute booking, one week in advance in April 2016, for our first time in Venice. It popped up as highly recommended in Expedia, which was well deserved, close enough to the tourist attractions - 20-25 minutes walk, on a canal - Cannaregio - with just one room left, so I grabbed it. My wife and I flew from (London) Southend Airport - also first time and excellent - with EasyJet, arrived by shared water transfer to Guglie vaporetto stop, about 150 metres away, and then were lucky that the last room we had booked was a junior suite, room number 1, overlooking the canal; check out the pictures in Expedia, they do not lie. Couple of comments to set expectations: 1. no air conditioning until May (byelaw), but not needed with outside temperatures at 17-19C daytimes - windows and shutters were sufficient; 2. strictly B&B, but happy to serve coffee or breakfast in the room and there are a café, 'corner shop' and ice cream parlour within 2 minutes, many trattoria and a fruit and veg market about 5 minutes. Wonderful!

For visitors arriving by rail or by bus, Cannaregio is Venice’s front door and the start of the Grand Canal. It sees a lot of passing traffic in terms of canal boats and visitors en route to San Marco, but is otherwise quieter and less touristy than central Venice. Points of interest include the Ghetto area (the original Jewish enclave) with its museums and the majestic Ca d’Oro palace, one of the iconic buildings of the Grand Canal.
