Stayed here in April of 2012. I searched for weeks for a decently-priced canal view room and decided on Al Sole. The hotel is spotless, the staff friendly and helpful.....couldn't really ask for much more (other than in-room coffee makers.) The best thing? Location. It was close to the bus station so we didn't have to drag our bags far.... More

The hotel was a pretty good location. The breakfast was very nice. The room was decent and the staff was cordial. I think I could have selected a better hotel, but it was fine for one night. I giving it 4 stars because the breakfast was really good!

Had a great 3 days stay in this hotel, perfectly sited within easy walking distance of the bus station. So arriving and leaving was not a chore. Well suited for the rest of Venice as one was able to manoeuvre one way to the main attractions and back another. Breakfast was not full English as catered for most Europeans, but... More

We stayed here for one night as part of a tour of Italy. The hotel is not in the main tourist centre of Venice which means that it is nice and quiet. Although confused by all the canals, it did not seem too difficult to find either. Although clearly an old hotel which has been renovated, the rooms were clean... More

My family of four, including 2 teens, stayed here for 5 days. We were thrilled with the hotel. The rooms were very spacious and what's more, VERY clean. I am a neat freak and always bring my own cleaning supplies. I didn't have to use them, which thrilled me. The hotel itself is in a nice quiet location. It is... More

We really enjoyed staying here. It was out of the way but still within good walking distance to everywhere. It's great if you are getting the bus in from Marco Polo, especially if you have a heavy suitcase like ours!

We had a two night stay here on our tour I would not recommend this hotel. Staff on front desk were pleasant. Our room was very dark and had a very slipperly floor until I put the mats under the bed. The Air Conditioning didn't work we did have an opening window which opened out onto an area that we... More

Hotel Al Sole is a nice find if you want to relax a ways away from St Mark's Square. It is on the western end of Venice, within a short walk of the parking garage, cruise docking pier and train station. It is very historic and has a nice interior courtyard. Before we enjoyed a bottle of wine with friends... More

I booked this hotel because it was near the main bus station. It is about a 5-7 mins. walk from the bus station. This is very important as there are no cars, taxis etc. into Venice. Everyone has to walk (with their luggages) to their hotels or take the water bus (vaporetto). This is not a an easy task as... More

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood identity.
