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. What a great find, it is in the perfect location, close to the main bus station (easy transfer from the airport), easy walking distance even with luggage (just watch people struggling with luggage...

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

Enjoyed our 2 night stay here. Convenient to train station and very close to people mover train which takes you to cruise ship terminal. Had a very spacious room with a river view. Although near busy transit area where people are arriving into Venice, the hotel is actually very quiet especially at night time. The staff were very helpful and... More

On the first trip to Venice and staying here, we told them we would be back and we were. Their location is the best. It saves you money because the bus drops you off right outside then a few steps and you are there. If you stay across the bridge you have a few options, drag your luggage across the... More

As other reviews have said, most likely you'll end up down the road from the main lobby (we booked through a travel agent so we didn't get to request the main building), it's not the longest walk in the world, but can be annoying if you want to use the WIFI. The WIFI is only available in the lobby, this... More

I stayed here one night prior to an early morning departure because it's located next to the major transportation hub into/out of the city. Everything was fine. The room overlooked the Grand Canal and is in easy/good walking distance to things north of, and including, the Rialto bridge. The vaporetto stop is a 1 minute walk and the train station... More

No more than 10 minute walk and over just one bridge, the Santa Chiara Hotel is a nice play to stay on the Grand Canal without the hustle and bustle being on the main drag of Venice. We booked this hotel on booking.com. It was a nice place though we were surprised at check-in that our room was actually in... More

The location is perfect - close to the train station, vaporetto stops and restaurants, And, unlike most hotels in Venice, it is possible to drive to it. Walking distance to most important sightseeing attractions. Some rooms offer a beautiful view of the cannal. Very friendly staff. Internet was available only in the lobby, which is not very practical.

I just got back from a 9 day trip to Italy with my best friend. We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The rooms feel more like a house then a hotel...hence, it's a different experience then your average hotel. Our view from our room was amazing! We had 3 big windows that opened all the way up. There... More

Buongiorno! Thanks a lot for your very nice review, I'm happy you enjoyed your stay with us. YEs there is a big bridge between us and the train station, if you have a lot of bags it can be tricky.

Santa Chiara Hotel is a well located hotel, a mere 5-minute walk away from Venezia St. Lucia Train station and next to the bus terminal. My period of stay was from 19th to 23rd December 2014.

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.
