Room was good sized for Venice and location is excellent. It is a small charming hotel located just off the Grand Canal. Buy your Vaporetto pass at the train station, take the #1 from the train station to Piazza Roma instead of dragging your luggage across the main bridge over the Grand Canal. The 2 smaller bridges are ok. Breakfast...

Hotel Gardena is located close to the Piazzale Roma parking stations, which means it is a short walk for those travelling by car (or train) - important if your baggage is heavy! The room was very nice and overlooked the canal, but it would need to be for the inflated price due to La Biennale di Venezia.

We had a perfect stay. Location was good, close to the train station with good accessibility to boat transportation (public transport). Hotel was spotless. Room nicely decorated and clean. Staff was very accommodating, even did an early check in for us. Breakfast was tasty, although slightly bigger choice of fresh products (vegetable and fruit) would be an asset. In overall,...

Decided to check in the Hotel Gardena after reading a lot of good reviews from all travellers. This is really a hotel that was so close to the train station with very reasonable price; the room is big with very clean set up and most important the front desk was really helpful. One person I must mention is Peter who...

Our stay was only two nights while we tried to extend it an extra night but there was no vacancy. So, they moved us to another hotel nearby. There is no wifi in the rooms. If you need to access data, you must go into the lobby and then it's still difficult. Our room was directly above the front entrance....

Very convenient hotel within walking distance from the train station and just off the grand canal. The hotel has just been renovated and it shows! Beautiful little place with super friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast was very good! I would definitely recommend this as it is close to so much and really nice.

The hotel is just off the Grand Canal and less than five minutes walk from both Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station, the two main entry points to the city - so perfect if you don't want to carry your luggage too far or arrive/depart at an awkward time. But despite the location near the busy transport hubs, you...

Overall the room was very adequate - nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable. I had made one reservation for 3 nights in a standard room and then needed to add 1 more night and all that was left was a Superior room. The staff put me in the Superior room the whole stay at no extra charge to save the...

On arrival the hotel was just a few minutes walk from the Bus (and Train) station. We were greeted by very pleasant staff who were more than helpful. We stayed in room 107 at the back of the hotel. The room was very clean and quite. Just a short walk to the water bus if needed but the best way...

My husband and I have just spent 4 nights at this excellent hotel so here is my review. Location - Excellent location less than 5 minutes from the bus terminus in Piazzale Roma just over two bridges. Virtually opposite the railway station again over one bridge. Check in - Smooth check in and the room was ready for us, the...

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.
