My son and a group of students went here last month, on the recommendation of an agent. Having seen photos the official photos bear no resemblance to reality. The whole group felt badly dissatisfied. All the other reviews seem very much truer to my son's experience. For the money you could do a lot better. I would strongly advise you...

we paid 150 euro per night for a standard double room, including breakfast. Staff was ok. Room was very rundown. wallpaper coming down, no plug in bathtub, no separate shower, no shower curtain, nothing to attach the shower head to, so you have to hold in your hand while showering. 10 inch tv (old monitor model) hanging near the ceiling,...

Travelling with a group of students, Hotel Basilea was our last stop in a 17 day tour of Italy. This hotel was by far the worst I have ever stayed in, in Venice and in Italy! The service was virtually non-existent, the breakfast offerings were appalling - stale croissants, something that resembled bread with nothing much to add to it...

Rooms small and shabby. Breakfast was inadequate and consisted of croissants that were 1-2 days old. At first we thought this was a mistake as we just grabbed a coffee and a croissant and rushed out leaving the croissant on the table it was so stale. We had to purchase our own breakfast.The next day we noticed that that the...

This was a basic hotel where you get what you pay for. It should by no means hold three stars and instead should be two or even just one. The room was clean and comfortable and decent-sized bathroom. Air-conditioning worked very well and the bed was spacious. The reception was always manned and there was a good-sized lobby to leave...

PRO: The location was very close to the train station and easy to get to on a quiet path but still near plenty of restaurants. The shower had great water pressure and temperature. The AC is a MUST in Venice in the summer. The room is a pretty good value for Venice. We didn't try the breakfast. CON: 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.
