This was an unexpected surprise. Stayed in the new wing with a view overlooking the Grand Canal. The room was modern and had all the amenities provided. We were leaving on a cruise and had a gruelling flight from Australia. Staff were very helpful and breakfast was very good.

The hotel's really located at a prominent location in Venice. It's just a few minutes walk from the Santa Lucia station.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Santa Chiara is situated in an ancient and more than 500 years old palace facing the Grand Canal. We are in Piazzale Roma (the only driving point of Venice), we are facing Bus and Waterbus stops, we are facing the train station (on the other side of the Grand Canal) and we are very close to the cruise dock. The location is unbeatable!!! And we are the only hotel in Venice with a private parking place (underground, please pay attention, it's not always free!!! Usually the cost is 35 euros per day). If you don't wanna carry your bags up and down the bridges of Venice we are the right choice!!! The new building, a modern and elegant white marble construction, is now open as well!!! The rooms can be in the historical building, in the new construction or in the annex located 150 meters from the main building. You can book the location you prefer by choosing the right room category. The rooms in the main building (historical part) are furnished in Venetian style, and many overlooks the Grand Canal or the water. Every room has air conditioning and heating, telephone, TV, minibar, safe, wifi. Bathrooms are equipped with shower. If you wanna book these rooms you will have to choose the standard or the superior category. Many of these rooms are big enough to accomodate 4 people!!! The rooms in the main building (new part) are a little bit more modern, much bigger and with a bigger bathrooms. These rooms are Deluxe or Deluxe with Grand Canal View. Every room has air conditioning and heating, wifi, minibar, tea and coffee machine, telephone, TV. All the bathrooms (except the single rooms) are equipped with bath and radio. Some with separate bath and walk-in shower. The rooms in the annex are 150 meters from the main building. All of them are very big and all can accomodate 4 people. Every rooms has the standard for the wheelchair! They are equipped with heating and air conditioning, minibar, safe, telephone, TV and wifi. 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. Common areas are big, elegant, and the most of them are overlooking the Grand Canal. So you will have the chance to enjoy that view even if your room doesn't!!! We have been awarded with the International Quality Trademark ISO 9001. ... more   less
