It's hotel is well situated and provides all the comforts you'd expect in a good hotel. The staff are willing to help and friendly, the service in the busy restaurant at breakfast is good. The rooms are small (you're in Venice - space is at a premium) but have everything you need. The location is perfect for local restaurants and...

Location couldn't be better. If you don't know Venice then this is in a great spot opposite the Waterbus stop (Ferrovia), so if you have suitcases it isn't too far to drag them (only over 1 bridge). The hotel is tastefully decorated and the rooms are sumptuous and flamboyant and very Venetian. Breakfast is buffet style but with some waiter...

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.
