This is a mix of hostel and hotel. The hotel's front desk is located at the hostel - where you can get the keys, and check in. First of all, they requested me to pay the city tax in cash when I arrived. So I did, and didn't get any receipt to that. Second. You have to leave the hostel...

This is a great hotel! Perfectly located and you can walk anywhere in Venice from here. The owner is a really great guy and he personally runs the hotel, they offer a really good breakfast and we had to leave early in the morning to catch the train and he even open the breakfast area early so we wouldn't leave...

If you are looking for the perfect spot to get in, out, and around Venezia quickly without sacrificing sleep or "atmosphere" quality, Locanda Gaffaro is it! The location of the hotel is impeccable: although only a 10-minute walk south from the train station or the parking garage, the hotel is yet in the center of a residential neighborhood and is...

We stayed at this hotel for a few days before Christmas. It is in a very good location, close to the main bus/train station and close to the main part of Venice. All easily by foot. We walked every where when here and only took around 15 minutes to get to st marks square. The hotel is very clean and...

This hotel is located in the dorsoduro neighboorhood (just 8 minutes on foot from the Santa Lucia train station). It's in a very quite part, but yet gives you quick access to the San Polo neighboorhood; within 3 minutes you are at the Scuola di San Rocco and another 5 minutes at the vaporetto docking station of San Toma. I...

We stayed here for 5 nights.only five minutes walk from Piazzle Roma bus station. Some lovely friendly inexpensive restaurants just over the first canal bridge out of hotel. Nice boutique feel with only 8 rooms,patron bit of a character, very helpful . The hotel was close to lively Piazzle Margherita which is close to the university so the cafes are...

Lovely little place in a beautifully peaceful corner of Venice. 5 minute walk from Piazzale Roma (bus station), with shops and restaurants within easy reach. Stayed here for two nights with friends. Had a nice comfy, ensuite room with a pretty little balcony. Clean towels and beds made each day. Fresh continental breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. I would absolutely...

This hotel is very conveniently located. My room was spacious and clean, the bathroom ok. Service is sometimes shaky, I overheard bitter and loud discussions with clients! A n unacceptable feature: breakfast is only served at 8.30!! Overall 225 Euros are largely overpriced. There are certainly better options.

I have nothing good to say about this place. My complaints: 1. Staff - we were met at the door by a rude, smoking old man who turned out to be the receptionist (owner?). He gave us an absolutely horrible, unsafe room. 2. The room - third floor, no windows (two sky light type windows which would have been very...

It was a nice hotel, good room, good service, friendly staff. Very difficult to find the hotel, spotty wi-fi but good overall location. Good value for amenities, efficient use of space although everything is somewhat cramped.

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood identity.
