In my opinion the hotel is well situated, located in the green area of St Elena, away from the hustle and bustle of St Marco's Square. For some it may be too far out, but for us, it provided a lovely 15 minute walk to said square (all along the 'coastal path', with beautiful views). Initially we used to water... More

Location: The hotel is on the far east side of the main island. Easy to get to from the main rail station (santa lucia) by vaparetto boat. The vaparetto stop is Santa Elena and the hotel is a short 5 minute walk through the park. The path can look like an eerie movie scene at night with the mist and... More

When I made the booking at Sant' Elena hotel I was a bit worried that it's a bit far away from all the main attraction in Venice. But I can tell you that didn't bothered my family at all. The hotel is clean and the rooms are spacious. Their breakfast catered for all ages. My son and daughter loved the... More

this hotel is a fair walk from the centre of Venice, but that's quite nice because you can get a break from it all. The water bus service can be picked up really close by. the hotel was clean and modern. The breakfast was excellent, the staff helpful & we had a comfortable stay there. We ate in one evening...

The Hotel Sant' Elena is in a quiet green area conveniently situated near a vaporetto stop. This made it very easy to travel anywhere by water, but it is an easy 20-minute walk to St. Mark's Square. The neighborhood near the hotel has a friendly pizza restaurant and the hotel itself has a good bar and a decent restaurant if... More

We visited in June 2015 and what a pleasant experience we had. The room was fantastic; Comfortable, clean and everything worked well. The staff were absolutely lovely and really went out of their way for us which we really appreciated as one of my friends became very ill during the last day of our trip. The area is quiet and...

Our friends recommended this hotel and we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is close to a large park and a short 2 block walk from the vaporetto stop. The neighborhood is very quiet. Our room was lovely, the free wifi worked well, the breakfast had many delicious offerings, the staff was very helpful.

Once again – this Four Star hotel deserves Five Stars for value and service. Our TENTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR at the Hotel Sant’Elena in July 2015 was even more enjoyable than our previous nine visits, and our annual trip to celebrate my wife’s birthday was, again, a wonderful experience in this, one of the most beautiful of cities on Earth.

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
Castello
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
