I thought that the location for this hotel was great. Right opposite the station, so many of the signs around the city and water buses lead straight back and its on most main routes. Room was clean and spacious, if not slightly dated. breakfast was fairly limited. However when in Venice, it's all about getting out and about and seeing... More

This hotel was bought for us as a gift from my parents for part of our honeymoon. We only spend 1 night in this hotel and it was lovely. When we arrived the reception staff told us that as it was our honeymoon they would upgrade us free of charge. I only found out when we got home that my... More

We had a standard room with no view. The room was comfortable and we were out exploring so it was just right for us. The staff was friendly and accomodating. Breakfast had a good selection but not much for a vegetarian unless you eat desserts. Great location ditectly across from the Santa Lucia train station. We enjoyed our stay.

Great hotel just a few minutes walk from the Piazzale Roma and on the banks of the Grand Canal. Not all rooms have wonderful views but that's Venice. Opposite the Ferrovia for trains and water buses. Breakfast could be better.

The hotel is positioned perfectly on the Grand Canal, with easy access to the train station, bus station and vaporetto (water buses). We booked this hotel as it offered bed and breakfast and were very happy with our stay here. We had a lovely deluxe room that had a little balcony overlooking the Grand Canal. The room wasn't very big,... More

Fabulous location, okay room but over-priced and money-grabbing approach to guests. I booked a double room but we were given a twin which they refused to change. Instead they put a mattress topper on the beds. Not good. Watered-down juices at breakfast and poor choice of breakfast items. The roof-top bar charged more than the Hilton on Giudecca for cocktails... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of a two week trip around Italy. I booked through lastminute.com "Secret Hotels" to get a reduced rate, but it was still expensive at around EUR350 for 2 nights. Although most hotels in Venice are very expensive so this was not necessarily out of line. Our room, 501, was a ground floor... More

We stayed here for two nights during our honeymoon and were quite disappointed. We had a patio room, no windows and very tired furnishings.

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.
