This is a beautiful hotel to stay in, once we arrived we were made aware that we had been upgraded to a larger courtyard room. The interior of the room was very smart and beyond my expectation. The bathroom was very clean with complimentary shampoos and soaps. The staff appeared friendly towards us. I have since recommended this hotel to...

We stayed here for 3 nights in February, during the carnival. The hotel staff were not as welcoming as we'd have liked but were quick to sort an issue out with shutters in our room. Breakfast was very basic on two of the mornings and had much more choice on Sunday morning, possibly because the hotel was fully booked on...

Beautiful hotel located on the canal. Spacious rooms, nice breakfast, kind staff and perfect location for walking and people watching. Large, king sized beds, bathrooms w tubs. Full bar in the lobby, great for late night drinks or morning coffee. A bit pricier But location is key. Right across from train station and a good spot to catch a water...

We stayed for 4 nights and it is a fantastic place to base yourself. Very close to the railway and bus stations it makes arrival painless and problem free. The staff were great, very attentive and smartly turned out. No tea/coffee facilities in the room was a small criticism but not really a problem. The a la carte menu was...

The hotel has a amazing view of the Grand Canal, in front of the hotel you can find the water bus/ Vaporetto very close. The hotel is just amazing and I would recommend it for everyone who wants to have a great view of the Grand Canal of Venice. Great experience.

2 minutes from both the train and bus station, don't worry you cannot hear the trains. Very clean, small rooms but the hotel needs a bit of TLC. Very helpful and friendly staff. There was an awful pianist on an out of tune piano when we stayed so avoided the restaurant and bar in the evening. Breakfast was plentiful and...

Fantastic first stay in Venice. Myself and my partner stayed at the hotel for 4 nights/5 days and absolutely loved it. We booked early enough so it wasn't ridiculously expensive. We booked a classic double room knowing we were not going to be in the room much as we wanted to be out exploring every day. The view from just...

The hotel is located bang opposite the St Lucia train station. However, understand that you will have to pull your luggage across a bridge with quite a lot of steps across the Grand Canal. The staff at the reception came across as condescending and was not as warm as the other hotels we had stayed in in Spain and Italy....

Hotel was lovely, rooms were outdated but nothing major. Breakfast in the hotel was not worth it, mostly just pastries and cold food for a English breakfast you have to pay which is ridiculous. You can not sleep past 7:30/8 in the morning this hotel is so noisy. Our room was right outside the lift so we expected noise, the...

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.
