Great central location. Nice clean hotel. Breakfast had a variety of choice hot and cold which was nice. Staff very friendly, couldn't do enough for you. When we checked in the room we were given was very small so we asked to change rooms which was done without a problem. Reception staff were exceptional and helped with whatever we wanted....

In a good location it was surrounded by restaurant and not too long a walk to most tourist sites. We ate in hotel every...

Beautiful Hotel in an excellent location overlooking the Grand Canal, close to transport links. The Hotel provides a good breakfast in lovely surrounding and provided by friendly staff who cannot do enough for you. The rooms can be small but are spotlessly clean, all in all I would highly recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to return.

(My travel agent simply requested directly to the hotel ) So from start to finish this trip was already made! 206/208/210/212/214/216 are all the rooms right over the canal! Our room was 210.

Stayed at this hotel after a cruise which terminated in Venice. Although it's not in the main tourist area of Venice it is an ideal location, directly across the Grand canal from the main railway station,a waterbus stop and close to the bridge to cross the canal to access both. On the same side of the Grand Canal as the...

I'd rate this hotel 3.5 star. The location was excellent - right on the canal and across from the train station, eateries and shopping. Our room was quiet and very small. The bed was firm but comfortable, and the pillow good. The hair dryer was dreadful and only produced a slow wind. The bathroom was small and the amenities were...

We booked a split centre short break based firstly in Rome then Venice. We stayed at the Carlton on the Grand Canal. Our first impression was from the train station, as we saw the hotel right across the Canal as we arrived. We were warmly welcomed as we checked in and our luggage was quietly taken to our room.

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.
