We were shown to a small hut in the garden (a barn in which I could barely stand straight) that would've been our room for an expensive €120+ a night but fortunately luckily we were able to upgrade to the room listed in the photos for €50 extra a night. So unless you like camping outdoors, really don't book the...

Hotel is well situated in regard to the Venice train station and the Bus terminal where the airport bus leaves from. The hotel rooms were very clean and well appointed. Our room on the second floor was recently refurbished & the bathroom was modern. I couldn't fault the hotel.

Warning, Warning, Warning! I usually do not say terrible things without reason, but this hotel and its check in staff (one man who refused to help or give advice) actually cancelled our pre-paid reservations for two nights stay and had the gall to say that we had cancelled. And so why would we have shown up then? Since we didn't...

We stayed at Hotel Gardena for two nights in September 2016, the first stop of our Italy trip. The first night we arrived we were so dead tired from traveling that all we wanted was a place to lay down, which we got, but the amenities stopped there. Bed wasn't comfortable, shower didn't work frankly at all but a tiny...

We have stayed at the Gardena a couple of times, it is affordable in an expensive city, it convenient to the train station and the Piazzale Roma, where you can get to the cruise port, the airport, and other places that require wheels. The updated rooms are quite nice, larger than average. The ones that have not been modernized can...

Rooms on 2nd floor are recently remodeled and well done. First and ground floor rooms have not been remodeled so beware as these are not a good choice. Staff was very accommodating and efficient. Breakfast was boring but adequate.

Great location just 5mins walk from bus and train station so you don't have to drag your cases across Venice! Hotel is very pretty and located on a quiet canal just off the Grand Canal. Very friendly staff and there is a quaint breakfast room with a patio if you like your morning coffee outside. There was a great selection...

When we arrived by train in Venice on October 21st, we were happy that Hotel Gardena was a 10 minute walk from the station. However, at the Reception we were told that our prepaid, two nights had been cancelled. "By whom? When?" We were dumbfounded. The very unfriendly clerk at first said our travel agent had cancelled. We said that...

The lobby and breakfast room were lovely and there it stopped! The room was too small for 2 people, one of us had to sit on the bed so the other could walk around. WiFi was weak and up and down. The airconditioning didn't work and we sweltered. The bathroom was falling apart and the shower was a nightmare.

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighbourhood identity.
