What a wonderfully friendly, welcoming & efficient hotel. Staff charming. Italian hospitality at it's very best! Ideal for pre cruise (& Venice break). 5 Euro breakfast great value for money. Free luggage storage post cruise too! Perfetto!

We only stayed for 1 night but we just loved this place, staff were friendly and helpful, the room was a small suite at the top of the hotel, lovely condition with a small window with views over Venice. Great location especially if you are arriving via the Airport Shuttle into Piazza Roma, near the Vaporetto giving access to the...

We stayed in the suite, which was spacious and comfortable, a king bed and a day bed. The decor was tasteful and gave a nice sense of place. Staff were very friendly and helpful re: directions. There is a working elevator, and the layout of the hotel is not labyrinthine like some we've seen in Venice. The on-site bar was...

The hotel exceeded our expectations. At first we thought the location near the bus station might lack charm but it turned out to be perfect. While clearly convenient to bus and vaporetto the surrounding neighborhood was great. It was quiet and not touristy at all and lots of good restaurant choices. Staff was very friendly and polite. Room was nice....

This was my second time staying at the Hotel Olimpia before embarking on a cruise departing from Venice. Location is just wonderful. The first time we stayed in their main building and this time I had 2 rooms across their back patio area in a separate building. Very nice indeed! Rooms are small in Venice as well as the bathrooms...

Had an overnight stay for our pre-cruise. Conveniently located in front of Plazza Roma where the People mover, bus and boat station is located. 10 mins to Sta Lucia train Station & 30 mins to St. Marco Square. Location of the hotel is really practical and saves you the hassle of dragging your suite case and going around Venice. Price...

We arrived at the hotel immediately when disembarking our cruise ship. It was a great location to the cruise terminal. Check-in was great and our luggage was held and waited for us in our room when we returned as it was not check-in time. The hotel staff offered suggestions on dinner which was great and also helped with any questions...

Stayed 21/5/17 -24/5 . Lovely hotel with charming gardens and the best friendly attentive staff. The room was beautifully decorated in traditional Italian style with a luxurious feel to the modern shower room. Breakfast was delicious and so pleasant to have in the gorgeous garden. Very convenient for access from cruise port via People Mover and so close to Piazalle...

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.
