The Casa del Melograno, recently renovated, is a characteristic Venetian facility that rents rooms located close to Strada Nuova, and distinguishes itself for its cozy and well equipped internal garden. The main characteristic of the hotel is the spacious garden, with the precious pomegranate tree which gives its name.
Its sober elegance and peaceful atmosphere make Casa del Melograno an inviting and convenient pied-à-terre right in downtown Venice!
Just like in the best inns or bed and breakfasts close to Rialto convenient for the Santa Lucia train station, the rooms of this facility are quiet and spacious, with views of the garden or of the canal. The staff, in addition to being very cordial and kind, is always available to assist you with anything that you may need. They will provide you with tourist information and private transfers, should you need them. Plus household pets are welcome.
The property was completely restored in 2003 and offers a refined single, double, and family rooms.
The internal garden of Casa del Melograno, about 200 sqm, gives you the chance of totally relaxing yourself, let your children play, enjoy a refreshment or breakfast during the summer months. During the winter breakfast is served in the dining hall you may request room service.
There is internet connection via ADSL and Wi-Fi in the rooms and in the common areas.
From the train station of Santa Lucia.
By foot, you can reach the facility in only 10 minutes: once you exit the station go left, following the road straight ahead along the Lista di Spagna and Strada Nuova, filled with shops and restaurants/coffee shops. After crossing Ponte delle Guglie, continue straight on along Rio Terà San Leonardo, until you come to a bridge: cross it and take the first street to the right, by the directions for the casino; continue straight on until you reach the small square. From there turn right (you cannot do otherwise), a few metres from the canal you find the entrance to our facility.
By steamboat: take boat n. 1 (for San Marco) and get off at the San Marcuola stop (about 4 minutes) From the harbour cross the street in front of you and then turn right; cross Ponte Storto that takes you to Fondamenta del Ponte Storto, where you will find the entrance of the facility. The walk from the harbour to the hotel is about 1 minute!
• From the Marco Polo airport of Venice.
You can reach Casa del Melograno with a private water taxi. Or, as a cheaper option, you can take the bus for Venezia Air Terminal or ACTV bus n. 5 and get to Piazzale Roma in about 20 minutes. From there you can take steamboat n. 1 and get off at the San Marcuola stop. From the harbour cross the street that is in front of you and turn right, cross the only bridge that you see (Ponte Storto). You are then right in front of the facility. The steamboat ride is about 4 minutes whilst you need less than 1 minute to get to your destination from the San Marcuola stop.
• By car.
Leave your car in the paying car park on Isola del Tronchetto or in Piazzale Roma. From Tronchetto take steamboat n. 2 that stops at San Marcuola (ask before getting on the boat) or, from Piazzale Roma take n. 1. In both cases, get off at San Marcuola. From the harbour cross the street in front of you, turn right, cross Ponte Storto (characteristic because it is not perpendicular with the canal), that will take you right in front of our entrance. The steamboat ride is about 4 minutes; once you get off at San Marcuola, all you need is a minute to get to your destination. Or, you can reach Casa del Melograno from Piazzale Roma with a ten minute walk.
