The hotel is situated very near the Venice SL railway station and one can walk down to the hotel from there within 5 mins. Hotel itself is a old designed with wooden beams for roofing and other classical construction techniques. We stayed in room 144 and the room was spacious enough. The Ac was a bit fishey, since we started...

Hotel Olimpia was a very nice surprise to me and my friends. It has a very good location - just 1 min from the main bus station, it was clean and modern, with very friendly staff and an excellent breakfast.

We loved this little hotel near the port. We were there for an overnight stay just before our cruise. We took the bus from the airport and were a little concern about finding it.

Right on the canal and across from the bus station. Very friendly and helpful staff. Gorgeous and huge breakfast buffet. Right at the edge of everything. Loved it. Rooms beautifully decorated in classic Venetian Italian but a little small, this is Venice. Very comfortable firm beds and super clean bathroom.

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.
