My family and I (8 adults and 1 baby) just returned from two nights in Venice at this hotel. Great location as it's within walking distance from the train station and also about 20 minutes to St. Mark's Square. Quiet area with some nice little...More
Lovely hotel in the quiet district of Santa Croce. Welcoming reception staff were very helpful and upgraded two of our rooms at no extra charge so that we had views over the canal. Breakfast is basic but filling and the garden courtyard was a lovely...More

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 neighbourhood identity.
