This Hotel is average and when staying in Venice you want more than average for the price. If it is hot outside the AC can not keep up. Everything is old and dated....like they gave up and just want to collect money. Breakfast is below average. The location is good. This is the type of hotel to stay in if... More

Supermarket Conrad just opposite the hotel - you can buy anything you want there at very reasonable prices. Room decent, Bathroom awesome :-) Staff were very warm and friendly. Cons: Hotel is quite old and needs... More

Due to a prior bad experience in Italy, I went in with low expectations, however I was pleasantly surprised. The first feel I got was that of a typical european B&B with disinterested staff. But Basilea was just the opposite. Very clean and the staff was very forthcoming and helpful. Check in with Marco was very smooth. Didn't get the... More

Stayed Here for 3 nights. Was greeted by lovely staff who were extremely helpful. The room was basic but we didn't really need much. There was a bed, wardrobe, dresser and TV (which didn't work). Only one plug socket which was high up on the wall and the hairdryer was poor. Having said that the shower was really good and... More

Good location, friendly staff. Would recommend for one night stay. Train station is a short distance so you really don't have to lurk around the labyrinth of Venice. Nice bar with young people having fun on c. larga da Bari :). Perfect for exploring the city.

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.
