The Hotel La Residenza is on a large, quiet neighborhood square slightly inland from Venice's fashionable Riva degli Schiavoni waterfront promenade. It's close to the Piazza San Marco and only a short walk (with one bridge to cross) from public boat transportation.
The two-star hotel, which is housed in a restored palazzo, has a traditional Venetian decor and a large, ornately-furnished lounge with high ceilings that you wouldn't expect to find in a hotel of this category.
All 16 rooms are air-conditioned and include free Wi-Fi.
As you leave the Arsenale waterbus pier, turn left and walk to the stone bridge ahead of you.
Cross the bridge.
Continue walking along the waterfront, past the Hotel Gabrieli Sandwirth and other large buildings that face the promenade.
Turn right at the Calle del Dose, a narrow street just before a large red stucco building with a small clock on the right corner of its façade.
Walk a block inland to the Campo Bandiera o de la Bragora, where you'll see the Hotel La Residenza facing the square with a red banner above the entrance.
Take the Alilaguna Blue Line airport boat from the bottom of the U-shaped cruise basin to Arsenale. (The price will be about half of the fare to the airport.)
Follow the directions above.
Leave the terminal by the main doors and walk to the wooden bridge.
Cross the bridge and walk a short distance to the vaporetto station.
Take the No. 2 vaporetto (water bus) in the direction of San Zaccaria.
Get off at the Zaccaria stop, turn right, cross the stone bridge, and continue walking along the waterfront until you reach the Calle del Dose.
Turn left and walk a block inland to the Campo Bandiera o de la Bragora, where you'll see the Hotel La Residenza facing the square with a red banner above the entrance.
