We stayed for a few nights here recently and it was very much a hostel-like experience.
The guest house we stayed in was shared by actual residents on different floors, and the room itself was relatively bare.
There is no tv in the rooms, no...More
We stayed for 4 nights and knew it was a budget hotel with a shared bathroom. The room itself was simple but clean, comfortable bed. The shared bathroom was very clean. Location is quiet yet perfect for accessing everything you want to see when visiting...More
I give 2 stars, one for the location and the other for the ambience of a real Venetian home. And now the cons:

This is the worst hotel I have ever encountered, customer service is appalling, they are only interested in taking your money and getting nothing back in return. I would rather sleep on the streets than go to this hotel, do not waste your money.
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.
