I only have one qualm about this hotel, so let's get that out of the way first...bring mosquito repellant. They do have a plug in repeller that seems to work, but I would bring my own as well. I got bit 25 times on my 25th birthday, seems only fitting right? The consierge was sweet and helpful and gave me...

Chose this hotel because of it's location and since I was on my own I didn't want to have to search for a hotel, dragging my suitcase over bridges and getting lost. Great choice, way beyond my expectations! Had a great room with a view of the canal, the staff are very nice and yes breakfast is wonderful, served in...

This hotel is perfectly situated (a few footsteps from Piazzale Roma) and very quiet.. Very good service. It's the third time I visit the hotel. The price is fair compared to other hôtels of the same category. I recommand it greatly.

A perfect hotel for Venice. Very close to Piazzale Roma where you have buses, vaporettos and trains arriving close by. This is very convenient for anyone starting a cruise in Venice as the People Mover stop to the cruise terminal is very close by.

I found this hotel to be absolutely lovely. It is a 5 minute walk from the Piazzale Roma, which you can reach from the airport by taking an ATVO express coach bus (currently €11 round trip). Piazzale Roma is also a major water bus stop, so you can access anything (I suggest a multi-day pass). I picked this hotel because...

Stayed here last year and service and location are still excellent. Little restaurant i wrote about around the corner raised their prices and food not as good. However hotel still has great variety for breakfast and is convenient to train station, vaporetto and airport shuttle.

Such a classy hotel. So much marble everywhere and centrally located. Loved it and would recommend it to everyone in Venice. Also get water taxi from airport as it is so much FUN. However it is quite expensive

We selected this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and by it's map location: Close to the train station and close to the cruise port. We booked it for 2 nights to do some sightseeing with the thought that the hotel would just be a place to stash our bags. We were very pleasantly surprised to find the hotel warm,...

My wife and I arrived in Venice early on Sept 8 2014 and took the bus to Piazza Roma. A very short walk through a safe area brought us to the Hotel. The staff was very welcoming and as it was early our room had not yet been vacated. They showed us two other rooms that were available, but we...

This was the best hotel we stayed in while we were in Italy. The room and bathroom were very clean, staff friendly and complimentary breakfast was exceptional offering both hot and cold choices. We arrived in Venice via train and this was a short walk from the train station - note that there is a bridge with stairs that you...

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.
