Booked the hotel as a surprise birthday treat , reviews were a mixed bag when I researched but I decided there were more positive than negative. We took a water taxi (shared) from the airport which drops you at the Sant'Elena stop and it really is just then a 5 minute walk to the hotel. Staff were welcoming and our... More

“Our NINTH consecutive year at the Hotel Sant’Elena” Once again – this Four Star hotel deserves five stars for value and service. As a treat for my wife, we stayed for 14 nights for this, our NINTH consecutive year at the Hotel Sant’Elena in July 2014, and were able to explore more of the surrounding area, including easy railway trips...

I chose this hotel because I needed large rooms. I have a family of 5, including 3 teens/tweens. Rooms comfortable and clean. Location in quiet, out of the way corner of Venice. Gave me opportunity to see another side of Venice that I did not experience in previous trips, when I stayed in more touristy areas. Required a little more... More

Excellent service, very specious & clean rooms, extra ordinary breakfast, reasonable mini bar prices, super helpful and nice staff with all focus on customer service. Our stay here was the best so far in our Europe trip. Breakfast has too many options, location is ideal, away from all the tourists in a little residential neighborhood. Very quite and nice atmosphere... More

The hotel is great and the service even better. We travelled with our 1 year old and had a wonderful stay. I must in particular thank all the staff who were wonderful. The hotel is not in the centre but it's easy to get there via boat or foot. Also Lido and it's beach is one stop away. I would... More

The hotel is in superb location, far from the noise of the city but close to all the atraction of Venice. The vaporeto is 5 minutes walking distance from the hotel. You can get to San Marco by foot in 20 minutes or three stations with the boat. Lido is one station distance. The staff is very helpfull and friendly.... More

Booked this hotel many, many months in advance on booking.com and nearer the time nothing was available at this price and quality so very pleased we did this, as it was my husbands' 50th birthday trip I also splurged on a Junior Suite as opposed to a standard room, As all other reviewers have stated it's a fab location for...

Great room overlooking garden. Proximity to water transportation excellent. One night stay prior to cruise. Would enjoy staying longer another time. Delicious dinner & breakfast spread was amazing. Staff very accommodating.

I have just read some of the previous reviews for Best Western Sant'Elena and had to write about our very different experience with the hotel. Our room was clean, modern, spacious (and we were in two triple rooms!) and warm, we were there late December and had to turn the heating off occasionally, very warm. Very friendly staff on reception.Guilia,... More

The island is lovely, its a great boat ride and easy to find. The rooms are spacious but absolutely freezing. Our room had stone floors and we were there in the middle of winter. They had no rugs and no alternative rooms. Good breakfast.
