The room was spacious and more than fit for two along with the on suite. There was a little noise at night as we were by the main entrance but nothing major and we did book fairly last minute. The breakfast was lovely with croissants, a hot drink, yogurt, spreads and plenty of fresh rolls. Advice I would give other... More

My wife and daughter stayed here but I was pretty nervous booking a Venetian hotel while sitting on my couch in California. They couldn't have been more happy with this wonderful hotel. It's a simple, no frills hotel but it's very clean and safe. The staff supplied A+ service and we'd recommend staying here to anyone who asks. You can't... More

Great, quiet location, tucked away in a courtyard. Staff really friendly and helpful, outdoor breakfast area lovely and large, clean room with nice big (and sparkling) bathroom. The waitress from Moldova was particularly pleasant and helpful (as was the gentleman owner). Couldn't find fault with this hotel and we'll be back.

This hotel was awesome. Away from the tourists, quiet but a GREAT location. Loved the breakfast, loved the area. Steal for the price. It was a little difficult to find. There is another hotel/bnb that is attached to. bright yellow hotel where the reception is.

Stayed in a mansarda, at least it is how they called a room 10 square meters in which I was able to stand only in the first 20 cm after the entrance. Asked for a receipt and they gave me a scribbled piece of paper without any identification of the place and the amount payed. Don't they have to give... More

We stayed at Locanda Gaffaro at the end of our 13 day trip and it was the perfect place. We had been to all the bigger cities and were looking for a quiet, relaxing place to end our trip. We got the room with a balcony and loved every minute of it. The breakfast space was lovely and a great... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights in April and are very pleased with our stay. The hotel was conveniently located in a quiet area, not too far from the train station nor the St. Mark's Place. The rooms were nice and tidy with private bathrooms and free WiFi. The breakfast was served in our room at our... More

Is this our ninth consecutive Spring in Venice, staying at Locanda Gaffaro? I have actually lost count. The first time, I happened upon the Gaffaro when researching reasonably priced accommodation in Venice; the bookings after that have been by design, and my husband says he would continue to stay at the Gaffaro even if we won a lottery. To tell... More

Everything about this hotel is great. It has a great position: not very far from Venezia Santa Lucia station and close to everything you want to see in this wonderful town. The room was small but nice, warm and very clean. The bathroom was brand new with a great shower and everything else you need. Breakfast was served in 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.
