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... More

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... More

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... More

Me and my partner went for a long weekend and really enjoyed staying at the hotel. The location is perfect to see everything. Its just off the tourist hussle and bussle but only 5 mins walk away. The street its in is very typical venisian. The staff were all lovely and the rooms lovely and clean. Would stay here again

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... More

Lovely city and we had a room with a view of a lovely canal. The room wasn't really big and the decor wasn't the best, the shower (no bath) and bathroom was in need of a bit of redoing but I'd guess most hotels are like this in Italy and it's just somewhere to spend at night as you'd be... More

The place is well situated, not far from the train station or the water taxi canal but on the other hand....everything is of walking distance in Venice. The rooms have views on a small but picturesque canal that we loved (spent loads of time just sitting there having some drinks). There is a supermaket just opposite the hotel where prices... More

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.
