I originally made reservations at Arlecchino Hotel, which is next door. However when we arrived a note on the door told us to go to Hotel Olimipa to check in. We were greeted by a very helpful receptionist. She told us we had been given an upgraded room at their hotel. She also informed us about the breakfast the next...

This Hotel is right on a canal. It is a charming, Venetian hotel. There is one caveat! Make sure your room is in the front part of the hotel if you need elevator service. We were put in the back - which is through the garden. Then there are lots of stairs. I would go back with the front part...

We travelled with another couple and as my husband is not very mobile we chose somewhere near the bus station and also close to a vaporetto stop (Piazza Roma). It was really convenient and meant that we could get about much easier. The vaporetto was easy to get on and off and we managed very well. The hotel staff were...

Stayed for 3 nights. The rooms were a bit small. The positives were free wifi and the breakfast was superb !!! It is close to the bus terminal but you have to climb 2 bridges if you are coming from the train station. The staff was friendly !!

Steps away from Piazzale Roma, a wonderful hot and cold buffet breakfast, and staff that went out of their way to try to solve my problems with my travel agent. We had a room overlooking the gardens which was very quiet. Apparently, the hotel keeps expanding so our room required us to go up the elevator and then walk down...

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.
