I changed my booking at the last minute to this hotel as it seemed more suited to my needs and my first choice of hotel had some bad reviews. I was so glad that I did, this hotel was central for bus station, train station, vaporetta plus land and water taxis. We used the vaporetta most days. The hotel is... More

As in other reviews the wifi is not that good. But the location and staff are excellent. If you have ever been to Venice you constantly see people lugging their luggage across bridges and down streets. This hotel is right across the street from the end of the #5 bus line from Marco polo to Piazzle roman. When you go... More

If you prefer to stay away from the St. Mark's square crowd, and yet walking distance everywhere, book at the Santa Chiara Hotel. We liked: 1- away from the crowds, yet right on the Gran Canal, 2- walking distance to St. Mark's (30 minutes), 3- less than a minute's walk from several vaporetti stops, 3- across a bridge from the...

Stayed here once before and found it to be a great location. Close to train station and cruise terminal. Your going to have to work or take ACTV so you might as well be close to all transportation. Not a bad walk to Rialto or St. Marks and close to Jewish Ghetto. Staff is friendly and they responded well to... More

We had two days in Venice and chose this hotel because of it's proximity to Venice Santa Lucia station. It is just across the bridge. Our room had a view of the Grand Canal and a chandelier. It's almost from another age with antiques in the bedrooms but the standard of comfort is very high. The staff were friendly and... More

After staying at another, higher-priced Venice hotel prior to our cruise, we stayed our final night in Venice at the Santa Chiara and found it charming and a really great experience. We only wish we could have had breakfast the morning of our departure, but our flight out of Marco Polo Airport left at 7:25am. We chose this hotel initially... More

We booked a short break to Venice through British Airways and selected this hotel on the advice of the BA agent , who had stayed there himself.

The hotel is situated at a very convenient area: really close to the bus stations (including the bus to and from the airport) and the water bus (vaporetto) stations. We stayed in the annex, in the ground floor and the balcony door was facing an alley, which was a little scary at the beginning. We soon realized that the door... 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.
