Hotel Santa Chiara is situated in an ancient and more than 500 years old palace facing the Grand Canal and COMPLETELY RENOVATED! We are in Piazzale Roma (the only driving point of Venice), facing Bus and Waterbus stops, opposite to the train station and we are very close to the cruise dock. The location is unbeatable!!! We are the only hotel in Venice with a private parking place (valet parking). The walking distance from here to San Marco is 25-30 minutes. Rooms in the main bulding (Deluxe) are great! Brand new, spacious, with silk on the walls, parquet or venetian floor and murano chandeliers. Many are big enough for families and many have the view on the Grand Canal! The rooms in the annex (classics) are 150 meters from the main building, the furniture is more simple and the rate is unbeatable! Porterage service is always included and they are connected to the main building by phone. Check-in, check-out and breakfast (when included) are in the main building.

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.

What a great location, we took a taxi from the cruise port right to the front door! Can't say that about any other hotels in Venice. Saw a lot of visitors dragging their luggage through the streets. Best of all the room was fantastic. 15th century building and our room had just

We stayed here for a long weekend and were really impressed by both the hotel and the location, on the Grand Canal. A 20 minute coach ride from Marco Polo airport (where the staff were excellent at organising onward travel) took us to the Piazzale Roma which is the main hub for

Firstly the good points - The hotel is a great location, just next to the bus station so perfect for getting to and from the airport (there is a shuttle for €15 return). We were in a classic room therefore shipped off to the annex, however it’s not far away and perfectly fine.

I stayed here for 3 nights with my husband. Our room was lovely and had modern electric touches. Had a lovely view of the grand canal. We had mentioned we were staying for our 10 year anniversary so they upgraded us to the canal view and also gave us a complimentary bottle of

I don't think so - you can email the hotel and ask them. I'm sure they will do laundry for you for a fee, don't they all! I didn't need any so can't really say but I didn't notice any where and it wasn't mentioned either.

Agree, brilliant location for cruise. The AVTO bus frops you in the square and the hotel is just of the square. The people carriir to the port is based on same square.

Depending on your physical abilities, the room you have reserved may be your best choice. The hotel is lovely. We had a room in the older section and the tub was VERY HIGH. We both are able bodied but had to hold onto something as we got in and out. As I got out the second time, I hit my toe on the swinging glass portion that shields the shower water from leaving the tub. (Look at photos online.) It really hurt but I'm tough and just carried on. After a bit, I looked down, as I was fixing my hair and there was blood all over the floor. I do not recommend the high-sided bathtubs. I would simply use extra towels to soak the wetness, and stand on those in the room with the walk-in shower. I do agree that bathrooms with walk-ins that do not have a way to prevent the water splashing or seeping into the rest of the bathroom are annoying and a safety hazard.
