Having stayed in quite a few similar Italian hotels before Hotel al Malcanton, I was not expecting much however, I was very pleasantly surprised!
We had a wonderful time, our room was very large, with plenty of seating, cupboard space as well as a well...More
We were happy that this hotel is near Piazzale Roma and only had to negotiate two bridges (one with steps) to get there. The hotel is very small and is apparently only on the ground floor. Luckily we had a photo to let us know...More
I stayed at the Hotel al Malcanton for a couple of days. Must admit it was a very basic hotel compared to what I would normally have stayed in. The gentleman I met on reception led me to my room which was about 5 metres...More
Venice is very expensive city. I can't get use to it. Hotel is nothing special, very small room, very basic breakfast. Advantage is that it's close to buses and train station. I will not choose this hotel next time.

Thanks for your comment.
We wish you an hotel giving you great satisfaction next time.
This hotel was perfect for a family of four to stay in. It was fairly close to the Piazzole di Roma where the airport bus drops you off and where you can catch the vaporetto. It was about a five-minute walk to Frari church and...More

Many thanks for your comment and hoping to see you again in our hotel !
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.
