Walking directions to the Hotel Filù (with map)
is one of Venice's newer boutique hotels. It's located in an historic three-story
building overlooking the Cannaregio Canal, not far from the Guglie Bridge and
the main walking route between Santa Lucia Railroad Station and the Piazza San
All of the hotel's guestrooms are doubles,
twins, or triples, and superior rooms have canal views. Rooms feature a modern,
unfussy decor. One nice touch: Breakfast is served from 8 to 10 a.m. (with
gluten-free products available), but if you need to depart early, the hotel will
supply a take-away breakfast on request.
- Tip: Free cots are available for children of ages 3
and under in all rooms, and in standard or superior rooms, you can request a
bed for a child from 4 to 12 at an additional charge. (We recommend
indicating your need for a cot or extra bed in the "Special Requests"
section of the booking form.)
How to reach the Hotel Filù from the airport boat's
Guglie waterbus stop (Alilaguna Linea Arancio):
The Hotel Filù is just a few meters from the Guglie
stop of the Alilaguna Orange Line airport boat, which is also used by ACTV
public water buses. Here's how to reach the hotel:
As you leave the Guglie boat pier, turn right and walk toward a green
drugstore sign with a cross.
Go past the drugstore to the Hotel Filù (the yellow building
in the photo above).

From Santa Lucia Railroad Station:
ABOVE: This map shows the route from Venezia
Santa Lucia Railroad Station to the Ponte delle Guglie on the Cannaregio Canal.
Walking time is 5 to 10 minutes over level ground.
Leave the railroad station by the marble steps outside the main doors, or by the easy-to-miss
(and conveniently stair-free)
side exit if you have rolling luggage, a stroller, or a wheelchair.
When you reach the wide fondamenta or pavement in
front of the station, turn left.
Walk past the Scalzi Church and the Scalzi Bridge toward the
Lista di Spagna (a busy pedestrian thoroughfare).
Continue down the Lista di Spagna, through the Campo San
Geremia (you'll see a large domed church on your right), and on to the Ponte
delle Guglie Bridge.
Cross the bridge, turn left, and walk toward the drugstore
sign with a green cross.
