    Friendly Hotel (Town House) in Cannaregio


    I booked this accommodation through Venere.com, - I wanted to stay in Cannaregio, and this place was at the top end of my budget, but it was in a good location, and had good reviews.

    I paid 280 Euros for 4 nights in a double room for single use at Christmas, Private facillities and Breakfast included.

    Luckily, after reading other reviews, I found out that this place is more commonly known as Locanda Novo. (This is the name on the sign post outside the hotel).
    If booking through Venere, it's listed in 'Town Houses' not hotels etc.

    The hotel wasn't too difficult to find with the instructions from the website.

    Check in took just a couple of minutes- I was greeted by name - always a relief that You are expected!, and was soon being shown to my room - Rm 9 The Casanova Room!

    Comfy double bed, with swags above, painted wardrobe, with plenty of coathangers, spare pillows, writing desk with Murano glass bowl. Air Con. View to street below from window.

    Small bathroom with shower, basin, WC, bidet.

    hairdryer (one of those contraptions that have very little power - So bring your own if you have long hair!), towels.

    freebies- soap, shower gel, shampoo.

    Unique Quality: No canal views, but handy location for sight seeing, away from the bustle of San Marco ( but is within walking distance. Ca'd' Oro Vaporetto (and palace/ museum - on the Grand Canal) is less than 5 minutes walk.

    Handy for Fondamente Nuova, and Vaporettos to the lagoon islands, San Michele, Murano, Torcello, Burano, Sant' Erasmo etc.

    Each of the 6 rooms is named after a famous Venetian, and is decorated individually.

    Apparently most people want to stay in the Casanova room, but Room 8 -Caterina Cornaro and Room 4 are larger and plusher! Bear in mind, it's an OLD building, so there are some dishevelled parts.

    The rooms are reached by a steep marble staircase - no lifts, but for those with mobility or breathing problems, there is a Stennah chair lift.

    Breakfast is brought to Your room, promptly at the time requested- let reception know what time You want your breakfast the night before.

    Choice of Hot Choc, coffee or tea.
    Basic, but ok as fuel for starting the day - croissant with jam filling, bread roll, 'toast' cheese spread, butter and jams.

    There is a supermarket nearby, so I brought some yogurts, juice and fruit to have with my breakfast.

    The hotel has some original architectural features, the stained glass window on the stairway was quite attractive. Antique furniture in rooms and lounge area on 2nd floor.

    Tickets for Vivaldi concerts etc can be arranged - flyers and posters advertising these and other events were in the lounge area.

    Directions: Vaporetto Ca'd'Oro. Turn right onto Strada Novo, continue to Campo Apostolo, turn left. The church door is on your Right walk ahead. Look for Hotel Mignon sign at end of Calle dei Preti and You're there

Wheelchair lifts on the bridges

by gfmueden

Six bridges have had wheelchair lifts installed, but i have seen no pictures of them in operation. Would like to know how long it takes from start to finish. Are they easy to use? ===gm===

Re: Wheelchair lifts on the bridges

There aren't many steps on Venice bridges....most are not very high....so I doubt it would takemore than a minute or so to get and down them by lift.

I believe you need a key from the tourist office to operate the lifts, but can find no information online at the moment.

confirms the need for a key.

Re: Wheelchair lifts on the bridges

by suvanki

Hi, I've seen these lifts, but I've never seen them in use. I've been trying to find a picture that I took of one near the Rialto Bridge.
Apparently many of the bridges now have wheelchair ramps fitted.

This webpage has a photograph of one of the lifts and some information which may be useful. According to the author, they can be a bit clumsy to use, and sometimes aren't working.

As far as I know, the planned lift is yet to be installed on the new Calatrava Bridge.

The hotel that I stayed at in 2007 had a stair lift - this was Locanda Novo (which is also known as Casa Novo First Class Inn) in Cannaregio. From vaporetto stop - Ca'D'Oro, there are no bridges to negotiate to get to this hotel, and the streets are quite wide.

Please feel free to contact me for more information.

Have A Great trip,
