Had a two night break here and found it a very good base. Rooms are decorated in the Venetian style, a little on the dark side but this is to be expected in an old venetian building, can give it the appropriate atmosphere. The location...More
The location is directly acroos from the Santa Lucia train station and overlooks the Grand Canal. It is about a 40 minute walk to St. Mark's square but the walk is part of the experience. The rooftop bar is key with a beautiful view but...More
We had read mixed reviews of this hotel but decided to try it anyway. I am glad that we did. It is very close to the station and bus station. The rooms are decorated in typical Venetian style with fabric covered walls and painted furniture....More
The location suited us as it provided the opportunity to walk the full length of Venice down both sides of the Grand Canal. its a long twisty flat walk but a great way of seeing Venice. I have said that the hotel is in need...More
Lovely rooms well appointed and decorated in Venetian style , comfortable and roomy.
The hotel faces the grand canal, although down near the station. A nice walk to and from St Marks Square or you can catch the Vaporetto from the nearby boat station.
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.
