A lovely, well located hotel outside the tourist trap area between the Rialto and St Marks square but these are easily in reach either on foot or by canal. Room booked was a classic so at back of hotel but bright, clean and adequate for the price. Lovely and quiet with views over the rooftops as on the top floor....

The hotel fronts the Grand canal, the boat docks and the railway station. If you are traveling by train and want a lovely hotel very near the station, this is the place. Boats (vaporetti) run up and down the Grand Canal so it is easy to get from one end of town to the other by boat. There are canal...

We had wonderful views of the canal and my husband, who is a captain, enjoyed watching the boat show below. The room was noisy with canal traffice starting around 5:00 AM but we were so tired from...

We were traveling with a group of folks and this hotel met our needs for sleep. The time not sleeping was touring Venice and enjoying all that Venice has to offer. As someone who is 6'4" bed length is always an issue, then again I slept like a baby after walking all day/night. The location to attractions, restaurants, markets, and...

Coming to venice, you have to consider the dificulties taking the luggage to the hotel. Taxi is expensive, so if the hotel isnt near "vaporeto" stop, you might have to cary them up and down a few bridges. The Carlton is just 100m from the Bus stop that comes from the airport. Another advantage is the train station, across the...

Stayed here for 2 nights. Right on the Grand Canal, walking distance to everything. Rooms were good if a little warm Breakfast had a good choice available and wonderful coffee! Staff were helpful. Directly opposite the station and just across the bridge from the bus station so easy access. Would stay again but maybe upgrade the room if possible.

As we were celebrating a very special anniversary we were given a free upgrade. The bedroom was quite adequate of about 4.5 x 3.5 metres plus a small area with a run of wardrobes and stool for suitcases.

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.
