“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Stayed at different Best Western in Rome, Florence, Mestre,Venice within a 2 week period and the best stay was at Sant Elena, Venice.
A modern and luxurious hotel.
In a quiet location and a nice 3mins walk across a small park to the Vaporetto station. After walking around in Venice for the day, its is nice to be back in a quiet location without the crowd.
Breakfast spread was good and nice.

The best was the friendly hotel staff service. Staff provided good information around Venice and competent. Best Western membership status are recognised in this property. Also had some issues with a purchase at Murano and the hotel reception gladly assisted to call and talk to the shop owner in italian. Again, friendly and helpful hotel reception.

Definitely will stay here again.

Sant Elena is one of the least touristy neighborhoods in Venice, but close enough that a 15 minute stroll along the lagoon or down some of the avenues quickly put you right in the middle of the tourist areas. It's nice to actually see locals hanging out in the park, having a coffee at the cafes, at a much slower pace than the crowds at st. Mark's. The hotel itself is surprisingly modern, almost spartan, but comfortable and well staffed. it was often the stopping spot for large tour groups who occasionally dominated the breakfast area to make their departures on time, but if you're patient they quickly dissipate. Also very convenient to the vaporetto stops for the times when you don't feel like walking.

stayed with family for 3 days in triple room. Loved it. Location is perfect: very quite, at the same time it only takes a 20 minutes walk to St.Marco Square. Vaporetto station very close too. Friendly and competent service. Greaf breakfast buffet. Overall, good value for money.

This hotel is on the far south end of the island of Venice. The area where the hotel is feels like a different place, much more quaint, filled with local residences. Getting to all of the venetian sites was pretty easy due to the water taxi stop mere steps from the hotel. The water taxi stop was also the last stop before lido island, so it made it easy to check that out as well.

The accommodations were very modern and luxurious. We really enjoyed the hotel's breakfast every day, everything was nice and fresh. The absolute best part was how quiet the hotel was when it was time to relax or sleep.

We stayed three nights and had a good time here.
The rooms are clean and modern and breakfast was standard...same everyday but that was okay because we were only there for three days. And you can change up your breakfast. They had turkey which was good as my husband doesn't eat pork. Loads of cereal, mini hot dog sausages Boiled and scrambled egg.They didn't have fresh orange juice but had some sort of orange juice.
The reception was quite friendly(so i can see they are trying from the bad reviews) and helpful on two occasions and gave us a map.
The bed was quite uncomfortable and the pillows too however my husband was fine sleeping.
Like the fact when we came down for breakfast and came back from long day we were greeted with a hello in Italian always. It was my husbands birthday also and they made it special for him and he was very happy. Thanks Best Western S'ant Elena.

We stayed in this hotel for 6 nights, the staff were excellent and very accommodating. On arrival we were not sure we had been put in a Junior suite as booked and the reception staff let us look at all the rooms that were available until we were satisfied (as the building is a converted convent nearly all the rooms are different in terms of layout). This hotel promotes the fact that it is very quiet and it is§ I've never stayed in a hotel with so little noise, no neighbours banging doors or overloud TV it was amazing how quiet it was. The only time we were disturbed by noise was from the aqua alta siren at 6am, a little weird as we didn't know what it was perhaps they could warn guests during this time of year about it. The breakfast room which is also the bar was bright and airy and my only complaint would be that the breakfast was a little boring, there was quite a lot of choice but it was exactly the same every day, the cakes however were fabulous maybe they could put out less but vary them daily. The breakfast room staff were happy to make us fresh café latté every morning (or cappuccino, espresso etc.) and I believe you could order eggs from the kitchen. I would recommend to them to get some kind of toaster to put out for people to use they did say that the kitchen would make toast if requested but this might be easier for them. The hotel is a little off centre but the vapporetto service is excellent with a choice of lines to get you to where you need to go. Overall we were very happy with our stay and would recommend this hotel to others.

This hotel has value and style. The rooms are clean, decor is classy, and the desk staff are helpful. The location is right if you would like to distance yourself from the crowds near the major vaporetto stops. It's easy to get to via the Vaparetto. You can also walk from the hotel to the Piazza San Marco stop in about 20 - 30 or minutes. The hotel is in a quiet, sleepy neighborhood. The hotel restaurant closes early and there aren't many restaurants near the hotel. The ones that are close by 9:00 PM or so. I will say that the locals in the neighborhood don't come across as very welcoming - I could be wrong, but that's based on my opinion after walking into a couple of nearby restaurants.

Room Tip: My sister's family were in the two level apartment style suite. It had an outdoor terrace and w...
