Franco was very helpful and friendly, and was always very responsive to any requests. The hostel is very clean and neat, and with towels, linens, a...

Then host is very friendly and helpful and the location is nice but that's about it. The place is not necessarily then cleanest and doesn't include the type of breakfast I would expect from a place that calls itself a bed and breakfast.

Our host was excellent, very funny, mindful of our needs. Place we stayed was not at the address of the hostel, was even better, close to Grand Canal, vaporetto station Ferrovia (train station) and Piazzale Roma (bus station). The house we shared with one more group was very clean, with our own bathroom, shared kitchen and living room. We had...

After reading feedbacks, we decided to book this hotel and everything we met here was cool. Accommodation expenses remain lower than middle average however you get very cozy apartments, with fast wifi connection. The hotel is located near to train station and approximately 25 minutes away from saint marco square. Don't be afraid that train station is near, it will...

Such a cute hostel! The rooms and washroom were very spacious, the owner (Franco) of the hostel was the sweetest, kindest man. Also very clean (the owner came in everyday to clean the washroom). It is located in central Venice, and you can walk anywhere within a few minutes. Located 5-7 minute walk away from the train station and Rialto...

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.
