Great hotel, would highly recommend it for a stay in Venice. Fantastic value for a hotel of this quality, in a great location on the Grand Canal. Breakfast / food was great; rooms very nice; staff friendly and helpful. Regarding location, this hotel is in a quieter area of Venice, however, this is by no means a disadvantage due to... More

Liked everything, breakfast was good, although 'cornetti' croissants could be a bit better, considering we are in italy. Room was small, but i guess this is the size of room you get in Venice. Clean and comfortable. Staff very professional and kind. Would definitely consider going back there again.

We stayed at the Cartlon at the end of January. It was very cold in the City yet the hotel is only 5 minutes walk away from the Piazzle Roma bus terminal. You can get the ATVO airport bus which is only 3 Euro's each direct to the terminal which is about 15 minutes travel time. We found the hotel... More

This typically italian designed hotel was excellent. The standard double room (which we stayed in) is their worst room apparently. It was ample in space and beautifully and tastefullty decorated. There is everything you need nearby, eateries, cafes, bars, transport and shopping. If you want the main sights on your doorstep, this is not for you as St Marco is... More

I stayed in this hotel for 5 days and 4 nights during a mix of a business / leisure trip to Italy. I chose the hotel mainly because of its prime location, right across the Venice SL train station. The exterior looks a little worn but once you are inside it is decorated nicely. Rooms are comfy and the size... More

Really enjoyed our stay in Venice at a perfectly appointed hotel in relation to the train station. The staff were also very friendly and spoke excellent english which always helps. Only problem was that wireless broadband was not available in the hotel

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.
