Hotel Santa Chiara is situated in an ancient and more than 500 years old palace facing the Grand Canal and COMPLETELY RENOVATED! We are in Piazzale Roma (the only driving point of Venice), facing Bus and Waterbus stops, opposite to the train station and we are very close to the cruise dock. The location is unbeatable!!! We are the only hotel in Venice with a private parking place (valet parking). The walking distance from here to San Marco is 25-30 minutes. Rooms in the main bulding (Deluxe) are great! Brand new, spacious, with silk on the walls, parquet or venetian floor and murano chandeliers. Many are big enough for families and many have the view on the Grand Canal! The rooms in the annex (classics) are 150 meters from the main building, the furniture is more simple and the rate is unbeatable! Porterage service is always included and they are connected to the main building by phone. Check-in, check-out and breakfast (when included) are in the main building.
