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.

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.

What a great location, we took a taxi from the cruise port right to the front door! Can't say that about any other hotels in Venice. Saw a lot of visitors dragging their luggage through the streets. Best of all the room was fantastic. 15th century building and our room had just

Chose that hotel for our long birthday weekend and it was the best decision. I was hunting for a nice view from the room and couldn't pick better (Deluxe Canal View). Much better value then the central hotels and location is just perfect. The bus station is right around the

Agree, brilliant location for cruise. The AVTO bus frops you in the square and the hotel is just of the square. The people carriir to the port is based on same square.

Hi I think it is 10 or 11 euros - I know it is very good value even compared to cafes round about. Hope that helps

Depending on your physical abilities, the room you have reserved may be your best choice. The hotel is lovely. We had a room in the older section and the tub was VERY HIGH. We both are able bodied but had to hold onto something as we got in and out. As I got out the second time, I hit my toe on the swinging glass portion that shields the shower water from leaving the tub. (Look at photos online.) It really hurt but I'm tough and just carried on. After a bit, I looked down, as I was fixing my hair and there was blood all over the floor. I do not recommend the high-sided bathtubs. I would simply use extra towels to soak the wetness, and stand on those in the room with the walk-in shower. I do agree that bathrooms with walk-ins that do not have a way to prevent the water splashing or seeping into the rest of the bathroom are annoying and a safety hazard.

"Deluxe Canal View #316 -modern, clean,quiet,with an amazing view, bathtub. Located in a new block (with grey facade) closer to the bridge."
"If you're going in the busy season and want the room with the view you're probably going to have to book it and pay the extra."
"Great views if you choose a canal view room. 303 was big. All well insulated by double glazing."
"make sure to stay in the main building."
"Book a room with a view!"
$110 - $388 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
