I usually stay in hostels when I travel in Europe but when I booked my trip to Venice I could only find hostels in the continent. So I found this 'hotel' closer to the touristic part of Venice with a very good price. PROS: + good value (as I said, I usually stay in hostels, and this hotel was not... More

Al Gallo is located on a narrow "alley" in a good neighborhood - a detailed Googe map is a must. My room was large, without decoration and very hard used furniture - the bed was okay however. The shared bathroom was clean with a good shower. The rate was high relative to quality, but this is Venice.

I don't usually write bad reviews, but Al Gallo deserves a special mention due to the attitude of the staff. We had booked, via Expedia, a room for three people (two adults and one child, which was clearly shown on the booking form), yet were allocated a double room. There were three failures here: 1. When I searched for rooms... More

This was the absolute worst hotel I have ever stayed in. When I visited Venice as part of my Italy holiday, me and my parents were shocked by the bad quality of the hotel.They have no air conditioning, unfriendly and unhelpful staff, a bad coffee machine and a mouldy shower, literally. When we stayed, we booked a double room for... More

Tricky place to find, so make sure you do your homework first. Room 3 was OK - big and fairly basic. Good sized ensuite. Terrible bed - my side had a hump running the full length. My husband also complained about his side, and he's normally fairly happy. It was hot when we stayed. With the air con at full... More

The place wasn't bad. I picked it because it was relatively close to the train station--but we needed a GPS to find out which alley it was down. I wasn't expecting much--just a place to sleep as I am out and about most of the days on vacation. It's a worn down building and the carpets and blankets have seen... More

Whilst this is an affordable accommodation option for Venice, in hindsight I think I would have paid a little more and had a more comfortable stay in Venice. The hotel is fairly basic (which is fine for the price) but is in need of a good clean, replacement of carpets and overall upgrade. The staff are friendly and mostly helpful,... More

Beautiful little hotel in a great spot to see Venice. Rooms were very clean, staff were lovely and the owner went out of his way to help with our departure plans. Can be a little tricky to find but take a map and you'll be fine. Rooms have a lovely rustic feel too!

We stayed here on the 8th April for 1 evening. Lovely hotel about 15 minutes walk from the train station. When you come out of the train station turn left go over the first bridge, turn right and follow the road round you'll see the first small canal turn left and it's down a small alleyway after some shops on...

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.
