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

This is a great hotel in a fantastic location. Prices have gone up since we last visited (2002)and the room we were given was not as good. This did not dampen our visit as Venice is such a beautiful place to visit.

I had booked this hotel at quite a high rate for two nights, one either end of a cruise. On arrival for our first night we were told that they had a problem with electricity in some rooms and had to move us. They promised that the accommodation we were being moved to was lovely (La Palazzina Veneziana) (see separate... More

I stayed here in summer, 2012 and almost exactly a year before in 2011. The first visit I came with my husband and baby. I had an enormous room with plenty of room for the baby crib (we bring our own, though they were more than willing to supply one). She was 7 months old and a busy crawler and... More

The lobby is nice but I was disappointed in the room. The walls were very thin & we could not sleep due to the noise from others in their rooms. I was thankful we had only 1 night here. The staff was helpful in find a place to dine for the evening.

We were here as part of a tour group. The hotel is in the area of Venice somewhat near the "Roma" vaporetta stop. It's about a 10-minute brisk walk from there over several bridges. It is said to be a converted palace. It's quiet, and out of the way compared to where most of the tourists are in Venice --... More

After experiencing our shoebox sized room in Rome, this hotel was Nirvana. We had a third-floor superior room that overlooked the canal. Just watching the canal and pedestrian traffic from our window was a treat. The room was large for a European room. I get a kick out of reviews by Americans that complain about the smallness of European rooms.... More

We chose this hotel for our 25th wedding anniversary trip to Venice after much deliberation (checking out tripadvisor's comments etc) and were not not disappointed. To start with, the location is excellent, being close, but not too close, to the main hub Piazzale Roma (which saves lugging cases too far when you arrive around midnight after everything has shut!), on...

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.
