The Hotel Casa Boccassini (or simply the "Hotel Boccassini," as the sign in the photo reads) is a 10-room hotel on a tiny street off the northern waterfront of Venice's historic center. Don't let the official one-star rating deceive you: Although the hotel is simple, it's extremely popular with guests, thanks in part to free Wi-Fi and a garden where breakfast is served in warm weather.
To reach the Casa Boccassini by water from Marco Polo Airport, take the water bus to Fondamente Nove. (Late in the evening, most Alilaguna Linea Arancio boats also stop at F. Nove.)
Follow these walking directions from Alilaguna pier "A" at Fondamente Nove:
As you leave the Alilaguna pier, turn left and walk to the stone bridge.
Cross the bridge and continue along the waterfront to the Calle Buranelli. (You'll pass several more waterbus piers along the way.)
Turn right onto the Calle Buranelli, which will turn into the Calle del Fumo. Continue walking inland.
When you reach a cross street named the Calle del Volto (inset photo), look for the hotel entrance, which will be just off to your right.
