Beautiful little hotel in a great spot to see Venice. Rooms were very clean, staff were lovely and the owner went out of his way to help with our departure plans. Can be a little tricky to find but take a map and you'll be fine. Rooms have a lovely rustic feel too!

We stayed here on the 8th April for 1 evening. Lovely hotel about 15 minutes walk from the train station. When you come out of the train station turn left go over the first bridge, turn right and follow the road round you'll see the first small canal turn left and it's down a small alleyway after some shops on...

It was a little difficult to find the hostel when I arrived, but the location is good. RECEPTION IS NOT 24 HOUR, so be careful not to get late or advise them about your arrival time. I reserved via hostelworld, and according to its rules they receive a reservation fee, and we pay the rest when we arrive BUT THEY... More

We had no troubles finding the accommodation, as it is within walking distance of both the train station and bus terminal. When we checked in our room was not made, but we were still able to dump our bags. The wifi needed to be constantly logged in to, and often dropped out, but overall worked okay. There was a bakery...

Me and my cousin stayed here for three nights and were very impressed with the hotel. It is located in a little alley way a short distance from Venizia Santa Lucia, although it was a bit hard to find in the maze of Venice. The man at reception was very friendly and helpful and spoke good English. He helped with... More

I stayed here for two nights from 29 - 31st December, and as a single female traveller, I couldn't have felt safer or more welcome (my friends booked later and were in a different part of town). My room is a little sweet vintage style antique room, with a shared bathroom (never even saw the other person sharing it!) right... More

I was honestly afraid accommodation in Venice would all be bad, and considering the price we paid, we had our doubts. But Al Gallo is really a great place. It's really comfortable, the bed is good and the showers were amazing. The room was big too. The staff was friendly and were truly helpful and nice every time. It's very... More

Me and two of my other friends (college-aged) stayed here for a couple nights during our vacation. When we split the room among all three of us, Al Gallo was much cheaper than even hostel in Venice proper. The receptionist was extremely nice and very helpful. He met us at the train station and lead us to the hotel. He... 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.
