Lovely hotel. The rooms are modern and comfortable, very clean. There is a lovely garden within the hotel grounds. Breakfast was excellent; a large choice and the dining room is bright and modern. The hotel is a little way out of the tourist hub but an easy walk to the square (or short water bus ride), and because it is not right in the tourist area it is quiet, more residential, therefore more authentic. Hotel staff were okay, not particularly friendly. The small restaurants in the area are lovely and much more reasonably priced than close to the square.

The value is terrific, the rooms are spacious, the hotel staff is friendly and efficient (they made dinner reservations for us and helped us locate boat stops as needed), and the breakfast buffet is marvelous. Stay here.

Room Tip: It's a little off the beaten path, but it's worth the trek to get out of tourist-clogged Ven...

Marvelous treatment from this hotel, cannot find enough words. From great rooms, service, food, Wedding reception room, buffet meal in the evening....marvelous! Thanks to all at the Hotel. Most of my guests say that they will be back to stay again, and the ones that stayed elsewhere said that THAT had been a mistake, and that the Hotel Sant' Elena was the preferred choice next time soon.

Quiet, clean, lovely hotel with an excellent breakfast buffet. The room was good sized, modern style, double sinks in bathroom. Very comfortable and lovely. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Easy walk from water taxi (no bridges to climb), and the stop was nearby. Sant Elena is a beautiful, quiet area with a playground. Short walk to lovely gardens.

I stayed here with a friend and the hotel proved to be a perfect, calm getaway from the crowds. Wonderful, clean room with a sun terrace, everything you could need for breakfast and friendly staff. And right near my favourite local bar for an evening spritz before heading back out into the chaos and charm of Venice.

Room Tip: Stay in 206 if you fancy a place to sunbathe!

I was here for three nights and after the hustle and bustle of the crowds in Venice, it was always nice to walk along the water or through the nearby park to reach the quietness of this hotel. The property is very well maintained. One afternoon I was able to relax on a chaise with a beverage in the courtyard. Breakfast was amazing with a wonderful selection of pastries, eggs, meats, cheeses, breads and beverages. The staff are friendly and eager to help with directions, etc. The hotel is on the end of the island, but if one is consuming the pastries...well, the exercise is needed. I did order dinner in the restaurant one night because of rainy conditions. The menu is very adequate, but perhaps a bit over priced.

On the southeast tip of the island, far from the San Marco crowds, it seems little too far away from most everything at first. But Venice is beautiful to walk, and there's the Sant Elena vaporetto stop nearby, so the distance felt like a plus. Interesting that this is a former convent located in a residential neighborhood.....lots of laundry hanging from buildings nearby. Rooms are stylish, comfortable, and well maintained. The hotel staff is very helpful, and they happily changed my room from the ground floor to a quieter one a couple floors up. The breakfast buffet was pretty amazing, especially the baked goods, which are pointless to try to resist. Overall, a wonderful stay. One warning though: when arriving, there's a strong temptation to hail a water taxi to take you across the island to this hotel, and avoid having to figure out the vaporetto system, especially after a long trip into Italy. While this is fun, it's crazy expensive (80 euros, for me), so it's worth taking some time to either walk from the train station (about 30 spectacular minutes) or hop on a vaporetto.

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
