We've been to Venice 2 times previously so didn't need a hotel in the middle of Venice as we were only there to get on a Cruise ship.

We chose Casa Sant'Andrea as it looked close to the Plaze de Roma were ther Airport Shuttle bus drops you off at and near to the port fof the cruise shop. It was also quite cheap for Venice.

In reality it is close the the bus stop and doesn't involve having to go over any brdiges carrying any luggage. We didn't really know the best way of getting to the hotel so did go a long way round but here is the best way. If you are on the Plaze de Roma face the multi story car park with the People Mover (overgead tram system to the port) on your left. Head to the people mover but don't go in, just go to the side road and walk under the tracks of the people mover, walk a hundred yards until you come to a canl and turn right. You will then see the hotel 20 yards on your right. This location also means when heading to the port for your cruise ship you just have to walk back to the entrance of the People Mover and get the People Mover to the entrance of the port. Even though it was on the edge of the Plaze de Roma it's still within wlaking distane of all the sites. But the advantage is when you get tired you just get a water bus back to the Plaze de Roma and then have a 2 hundred yard walk along the canal past a supermarket back to the hotel

The staff at the hotel were very friendly (and appeared to be quite pleased with their Trip Advisor certificate they had received while I was sat in reception) and helpful. The rooms were big and clean. The beds were a bit hard but not that hard you got a bad nights sleep. There wasn't a TV in the room but who wants to watch dodgey Italian TV.

And you get a view of your cruise ship from your room, if you are tall enough to see over the roof's

We stayed here for two nights prior to boarding a cruise ship. This is an interesting historic building converted from a monastery. It's location is perfect for cruise passengers because the People Mover is literally a stone's throw away. It's close proximity to P Roma, train station, vaporetto stops, port, convenience store really gives it an advantage for short stay tourists. Another huge plus is the free Wifi access in the rooms. Bathroom was huge with an abundance of hot water.
The down side would be the inadequate elevator facility, poorly lit hallways, a/c does not work in the room and there was no fan provided.

It is very closely located to Santa Lucia Station which came in handy. We were given room 102 which is adjoining with room 101, we noticed that the adjoining door was unlocked and then called the front desk to get it locked, he made us come down and get the key. We did notice though that luckily our room came with it's own shower and toilet. Room 101 has to use the facilities on the floor.

The floor of the hotel is uneven and bubbly, they provide mosquito coils, but probably best to bring rid, we didn't sleep till we killed every mosquito in the room.

You have to hand the key back to the front staff everytime you leave the hotel, annoying and a little freaked out that anyone could come back and ask for our room key, seriously not very good security especially when the front desk change shifts.

It is fine for one night, no longer! You get free breakfast; it gets you started but don't expect much.

The hotel does not provide a map and you have to pay for your own at the tourist places for 3 euro. You also have to pay 2 euro per person per day for the people tax or what not.

Room Tip: Room 102 comes with your own toilet & shower but is adjoining to room 101 and you need to get the key to lock the door so you don't have unexpected guests trying to get it like we did.

We stayed in Casa Sant'Andrea prior to our taking a cruise from Venice. The hotel was near the People Mover station for cruise passengers, and Piazzale Roma where buses stop. Note that this is not a luxurious hotel and this place only covers all of your necessities. The large simple room we stayed in was clean and comfortable. I would have to agree with another review that the hotel could improve the lighting in the stair landing. However, this is a great location for those who have a short stay in Venice prior to taking a cruise.

Room Tip: If you don't mind climbing 3 flights of stairs, stay on the 2nd floor for a view. *Reception is on "0" floor.

We stayed at the Casa Sant'Andrea B&B/budget hotel for four nights a the beginning of June. On the plus side it is really conveniently located close to Piazzale Roma where there is the main bus depot and also a major stop for the vaporetti or public water bus service. There is even a water bus stop right outside the hotel from where you can do a circuit of the Grand Canal and visit Murano. The main rail terminus is just on the other side of the canal too. It's easily walkable into the old town and to restaurants and there is a supermarket within about three minutes walk.
On the negative side however the hotel is really basic. Our room on the 2nd floor (which had a good view over old rooftops to the harbour) was clean but in a poor state of repair. The floor had tape over holes and there was peeling paint on the ceiling. The shower had mould around the tray.The bed was two singles pushed together and an alarming gap down the middle covered only by a thin sheet. The airconditoning unit made a sound fit to wake the dead and leaked water (not a small issue given the current outbreak of legionnaires disease). Leaving the window open meant we got badly bitten by mosquitoes. Perhaps the worst aspect was the "continental breakfast" which really was dire-sugar coated cheap cereals, processed ham and cheese and cakes in plastic wrappers; no fruit in sight. Some guests brought in their own breakfast cereals and others like us ate little and paid a fortune for good coffee in a cafe nearby.
All in all though it was a good base and what we presumably saved in hotel costs easily got spent on touristy things-Venice really is an expensive destination.
Tips for visitors:
-Do buy a pass for the public waterbus network at Piazzole Roma-you can go everywhere including Murano and it's much cheaper than paying for fares as you go. You can add on a pass for the Grand Canal which includes an audio commnentary
-avoid the gondolas-very expensive and tacky
-water taxis are also expensive but pretty cool
-get bus 5 from and to the airport to Piazzole Roma-it's only Euros 5 each way and stops very near the hotel
-avoid the unlicensed street sellers with counterfeit designer bags-hefty fine for you if caught at the time or at the airport
-Piazzo San Marco/St Mark's Square is a must but you can't eat or sit down in the square (presumably to preserve the monopoly of the hugely expensive cafes in the square). The museum is expensive and the Euros 20 pass for 11 museums looks like good value until you realise that are probably not where you really want to go. The Accedemia Art gallery is a must even if you're not an art lover
-walk everywhere you can-it's a totally amazing city
