The best of this hotel is the location! The room was spacious with a nice bathroom. It is not a hotel to spend a lot of time in it, but for those who just need some clean place to sleep is ok. The breakfast is terribly poor but I am already missing the kind italian lady that asks every morning... More

There are nicer hotels at better locations than this one for similar prices. We checked in late night and the reception staff was dis-interested in serving us (too busy scratching himself). The towels had stains on them and were torn and worn out, the toilet set was broken and cracked, and bathroom had a smell. We asked for extra pillows... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights on September 4-6, I can truly say that we couldn't find a better hotel for this purpose. It has a great location, we could easily get anywhere by foot and we used the water bus only once, from saint Marco to the hotel. It's also close to the train station, and it... More

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

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.
