Group of 6 adults stayed at the Hotel Canal after completing a cruise. Given some of the reviews I was expecting a run down hotel and was concerned about our booking. I could not have been more wrong. Sure, the place was old and small, but hey, you are in Venice, Italy. It was clean, very well located right on... More

The hotel is located near the Railway Station an the Piazzale Roma, so all of Venice can be reached very good. We had a great room with a view of the Canal Grande. The furnishment is excellent, in a classic Venetian style. The personal is very friendly, the breakfast is quite good. The only drwaback: Some very eager moskitoes!

Arrived at hotel. At 10. Wasn't able to check in until 1ish but was able to leave bags so did a bit of site seeing before checking in. Extremely difficult carrying 30+kg of luggage up to level 3 up the narrow staircase as there isn't a lift. Got to the room. Was expecting "shabby chic" but it seemed like a... More

I am an optimist & well-seasoned traveller (read my other TA posts). I generally don't allow other people's reviews hinder my decision on places to stay...However, I WISH I had!! Here is my assessment & experience with this place... So here are my positives of the hotel Canal: 1. Good location 2. Good European Style breakfast (hard-boiled eggs, bread/jams/butter, assortment... More

Rather faded but interesting old building, very well situated, easy walk to train station, buses, and waterbuses. We had 2 short stays at an interval of 1 week. Both rooms were clean, comfortable, air-conditioned, with mini-fridge. Reception was busy but helpful, especially Paolo, and able to advise re transport etc. Stairwell needed vacuuming. Breakfast not so good, slow old toaster,... More

We stayed at the Hotel Canal for four nights and would return. It is very well placed for the train and bus stations on the opposite side of the canal. There are bridges to cross and most don't have ramps so allow for those. Paolo and Antonella on reception were very friendly,efficient and helpful as we're all staff that we... More

The hotel was a short walk from the Piazza Roma (2 bridges- 1 with steps) so it's close by and convenient if you are carrying luggage. It is right on the canal with a nice restaurant next door. Our room was clean and quiet and had a nice rooftop view. Yes, there was no elevator and the room was on... More

Apart the facade that is a little old and the reception was a little dark, then our room was bright and clean. The bathroom was perfect for us with a nice bath-tube. In the morning it was great to have breakfast outside in the garden. the selection of food was various and quite good. We can't say anything and we... More

No elevator, air conditioner sucks, breakfast area is small and cramped for the amount of rooms in the hotel. Breakfast is served from 8-10 AM. In the room they gave me when you opened the door to the bathroom it would hit the toilet. It made you feel cramped inside the bathroom even though the bathroom wasn't small.

The hotel was in a perfect location, lovely restaurants and bars round about and just a 2 minute walk to train, water bus and bus station. We didn't have any problems with noise in the area we were in, other than one morning we heard the housekeeping going into someone else's room at 8am. Hotel was very clean and staff... 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.
