This was our 2nd visit to the Olympia and once again we have had a truly enjoyable stay. It’s a great location (10 mins from the station, tram and bus terminus) beside a quite canal and unusually has a lovely secluded terrace and garden at the rear of the hotel, where you can take breakfast or an evening drink.

We booked this hotel because we were only going to be in Venice 2 days and had an early departure. It's just a few minute's walk to the People Mover, airport express bus, train station, and Vaporetto stop (water bus). We got the Classic Double Venetian Style room (had a queen bed). Ours was one of the updated ones which...

This place is much more than I expected. From Googlemap it appears somewhat remote from major activities/center of town, in fact, this is not the case. It is in walkable distance to St Marco square, you can also take waterbus for EUR 7.50 each way. There are plenty small streets to walk around and explore that are less touristy. Totally...

People were friendly and very accommodating. The breakfast was fantastic. We would recommend this hotel to anyone. The location was perfect for water taxi access and access to the train station. There were restaurants next door that were perfect and the garden area in the back was very quaint.

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.
