The central Hotel Al Vagon offers one-star rooms on the border of Cannaregio and San Marco, within walking distance of most city sights.

Pros: Convenient location. Clean and quiet. Some rooms with views.

Cons: Steep stairs (no elevator). Prices unpredictable.

Review

The friendly Hotel Al Vagon has a lot going for it, including a convenient Cannaregio location and congenial owners. Recent upgrades to the property have resulted in nicer rooms with slick bathrooms, although the formerly “cheapo” rates are now largely history.

Typical for Venice, the hotel resides in a centuries-old palazzo, this one dating to the 15th century. Still, its 24 guest rooms offer modern comforts, including air conditioning, a safe, satellite TV and a phone, and Wi-Fi works throughout.

Venetian flair dominates the look throughout, with brocade curtains, antique furnishings and some impressive four-poster beds. ”Classic” rooms are on the smaller side, but some overlook the canal (and are slightly more expensive). “Superior” rooms seemed to have a bit more flash and gold, are more spacious, and have some of the best canal view in the house. The upgrade, however, will cost you another €20-30.

The bathrooms, all private, vary in size. All have a shower, hair dryer and basic toiletries.

Note that there isn’t an elevator, and the hotel’s stairs are fairly steep. Breakfast is not available either, but many cafés in the area make it easy to grab a bite. And pet lovers should note that furry friends sleep free.

About the Hotel Al Vagon neighborhood

Situated north and west of the train station, Cannaregio provides some of the city's cheapest sleeps and eats. It's the most navigable "sestiere" in the city and by far the most convenient area from which to explore Venice. Adjacent to the train station on one end and bordering San Marco at the Rialto Bridge on the other, here you’ll find the Jewish Ghetto and some of Venice’s finest palaces, among them the breathtaking Ca d’ Oro.
