This review of Gardena Hotel may not be a completely accurate for 90% of the rooms of which the hotel offers. Let me explain. I booked a four night stay for myself and my wife many months prior to our mid July trip and booked the cheapest room option available on a travel website. I expected to get one of... More

Venice is old, its buildings crowded against one another, the are no sugardaddies looking to renovate small boutique hotels. So, the Gardena Hotel is typical of Venice- cozy rooms that are well appointed, in room wifi and a better than average breakfast. The manager was in contact with me 2 days prior to staying to advise he would try and... More

Everything Venice about this hotel. Expensive and small room, but close to station so good for access when carrying luggage around. Breakfast was good, receptionist a little unapproachable but got the job done. Room was quiet, and close enough to good restaurants and the 'neighbourhood' side of Venice.

We were coming in late from the train station and I wanted an easy place to find and sleep on our 2 night stay in Venice. We landed at the Gardena Hotel. When you get off the train station it's basically across the canal, or about a 10 minute walk. The only bad part is you have to carry your... More

Great hotel in a convenient location to the train station. Our room overlooked a canal and we also had views of the Grand Canal. It was opposite a beautiful public garden. Location was good and everything was within walking distance. Definitely good value for money.

Gardena Hotel is very convenient to the railway and to the airport bus station, (one bridge in either direction) which is a consideration if you are arriving at night or are only staying a few days. Venice is small but you will get lost trying to navigate to more distant parts of the city with luggage in tow at night.... More

We are staying here now . It is a nice hotel in a section of Venice that is quiet and preferable to the crowds at San Marco. The price is good for Venice and the breakfast was good.. They have great cappuccino! Definitely give this place a look!

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights. It was out of the heavy traffic area, because it's on the northern end of the canal, but still very convenient to the train station. Once we got the hang of the Vaporetto (ferry) system, we were able to see everything in Venice that we wanted to. For the... More

We had the pleasure of staying at this exceptional little hotel overlooking a canal in Santa Croce. Conveniently situated for train and vaporetto or just wandering around beautiful Venice. The staff at the Hotel were exceptionally welcoming and helpful. We had a lovely room overlooking the canal, beautifully furnished, crisp white linen on the bed which was so comfortable, well...
