“Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

We had the pleasure of staying at this exceptional little hotel overlooking a canal in Santa Croce. Conveniently situated for train and vaporetto or just wandering around beautiful Venice. The staff at the Hotel were exceptionally welcoming and helpful. We had a lovely room overlooking the canal, beautifully furnished, crisp white linen on the bed which was so comfortable, well appointed bathroom. Downstairs beautifully furnished lounge area and breakfast room (the breakfasts are good and plentiful). Well positioned and easy walking distance to delightful cosy restaurants.This hotel is a delight all round and we plan to return in November for another visit. Highly recommend this wonderful hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a canal facing room.

Good hotel who stops for few days-nights. Comfortable room, quiet atmosphere, free internet and nearly bus&railway station. A bit far away from central part of city to walk. Not far from good places for dining and shopping. Was nice to stay there!

I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights between the 28th and 30th March.The hotel is situated just 5 mins away from Piazzale Roma where the bus station is about an hour (by bus) from Treviso Airport. It is very clean and the hotel staff are very helpful and very fluent in English. Gardena Hotel is also the ideal location for those who want to visit Venice as it is abour 5 mins away from Rialto Bridge which is very close to Piazza San Marco.

Had a fantastic stay here in Venice . Lovely hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was lovely. 15 to 20 min walk to ST Marks and Rilato Bridge but we loved it saw more of Venice and the Canals that way . Really enjoyed our stay. Would definitely stay here again. Excellent Hotel for a weekend away.

We selected the hotel based on the location (close to Piazzale Roma), the price and the ratings. We arrived late at the city and the hotel is 5 minutes walk from Piazzale Roma where the buses from the airport stop.

The personnel is amazing and very helpful.

The hotel is old (as all building in Venice) but has a beautiful character and is in good condition. The room was spacious and clean. The only problem I noticed was some mold in the bathroom between the tiles and some hair on the bathroom floor.

Overall I believe the hotel provides a good balance for the price. I would suggest it.

Whether arriving by train or road, the easy walk to the hotel was a real plus. Being in Venice in December means low temperatures, but the room was warm and comfortable for the price.
It was easy to find, and being only a 5 minute stroll to the Vaporetta, transport to all parts of the city was easy.
Breakfast was fine, if somewhat limited. The lack of a toaster any hot food were minuses.
Cleaning was adequate, but the amount of mold in the shower was disappointing.
I'd happily stay again.

We have just stayed at this hotel for three nights. Having stayed in other hotels in Europe in this price range I have to say that this hotel is of a higher standard than most. The location is perfect for all public transport, including the waterbus. The were very friendly and the hotel,was spotless. Overall we would use agaijn the next time we are in Venice.
