I had only one night in Venice so started looking at hotels near the centre. Either incredibly expensive or would only take bookings for two nights. So I booked the Hotel Sant Elena. Really happy I did. The location is a quiet corner of Venice away from the tourist crush in the centre yet only 3 Vaporetti stops from Piazza San Marco or 30 minutes very pleasant walk along the waterfront. Room was quiet, really comfortable and beautifully dark in the morning with full shutter blinds. Breakfast was unusually good and the staff ever helpful. I made the classic mistake of leaving my iPad charging in my room when I checked out. It was safely returned in my bags when I came to collect them later in the day. Recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our romantic boutique hotel owes its secluded ambiance to the former convent in which it is housed and of which it still retains much of the original structure: the high walls and the imposing façade conceal unexpected gems such as the impressive spiral staircase and the amazing garden furnished with comfortable chaise-lounges. Venice, with its historic center and beautiful architecture, can be reached with a pleasant stroll along Riva degli Schiavoni, or in just a few minutes by waterbus. ... more less
