“Ideal Hotel For Your Cruise Pit Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2011

Casa Sant’Andrea was ideal for our one night stay before heading to our cruise ship the following morning.

We arrived at Marco Polo Airport around 10:30pm and managed to hop aboard the express ATVO Fly Bus to Piazzale Roma, which was directly in front of the Arrivals Terminal. It took approx. 30 mins and cost €5 each. You can buy your tickets at either the ticket counter located within the airport or from the bus driver.

The hotel was a convenient 3 min walk from the Piazzale Roma - no bridges to cross. We walked along the side of the People Mover station which led to the canal on which the hotel is located.

As you enter the foyer you truly appreciate the age of the building which has been well maintained with its stone walls and aged marble steps. The receptionist at the counter was cordial and told us that our room was located on the second floor. Unfortunaltely, we had to take the stairs with our heavy luggage as the lift was locked.

The building is vast – which is deceiving from the outside – and there was quite a bit of searching for those sensor lights as we when through the corridors.

Our room was small and basic with no TV but clean which was sufficient for our one night. The bathroom was a very good size with a great shower and loads of towels and toiletries.

I have to say the best thing was the view from the bathroom window which faced directly towards the Marittima Cruise Ship Terminal where we could see our ship in the distance.

Breakfast was a basic continental and coffee was served by a very pleasant gentleman in the main dining room. With its exposed wooden beans you can truly feel the history here.

The hotel is ideally situated close to a water taxi stop and it was just lovely to sit along the canal in front of the hotel and watch the boats go by.

At checkout we were able to leave our bags as we decided to a take a few hours to explore Venice before jumping on the People Mover (€1 each) for the ship. Please note that while our bags were at the hotel we took a little trek part of the way to the Cruise Ship Terminal and it was quite a walk over various terrain. The People Mover is well worth the price.

Overall, Casa Sant’Andrea is a perfect hotel for an overnight stay if you just want a place to rest your head before your exciting cruise.

Room Tip: Room 212 Has great views towards the cruise ship terminal

We were staying for one night only and chose the Casa Sant' Andrea because it was cheap and close to the port. We weren't expecting a great deal but, as long as you remember that the hotel is at the budget end you will not be disappointed. This place doesn't have views of St Marks Square, the rooms are not luxurious and they don't have 40 inch screen TVs but do you really go to Venice to stay in your hotel?
We booked a quad room. What we got were adjoining rooms (101 and 102) with a large en-suite. The room was spotless, the beds were comfortable, the bathroom was good and the air con efficient. The towels weren't thick and fluffy but the were lots of them. The staff , who spoke English,were accommodating- our room was ready and checking in early was no problem. Other visitors who arrived well before check-in time were allowed to leave their bags, Similarly the hotel was fine about us leaving our bags in reception after we checked out. The building itself is pleasant and they have left some interesting original features in place. Breakfast is plain and simple but plentiful-we enjoyed it

If like us, you are staying in Venice prior to joining a cruise this place is in an ideal situation. Get the direct bus from Marco Polo- it costs 5 euros, buy tickets before you leave the airport- the hotel is three minutes easy walk away from the stop (another reviewer gives good directions). The highly efficient people carrier costs 1 euro and takes you to the port. .
We spent the day in Venice and found our way round pretty easily, The city isn't that big and there are signs on the walls giving you directions to the major attractions. However I did get lost looking for the Coop near to the hotel. It's great if you want to buy a good cold beer- prices in bars and restaurants can be high. To find it leave the hotel and walk back to the bus station. On the far side of the bus station is the canal. There is a large modern foot bridge over the canal. Make your way to the bridge but don't cross it. Go down the broad flight of steps to the left- there are a number of stops for vaperreto in front of you -take a left and walk alongside the canal for about a hundred metres- the coop is the last building you get to. It is quite large and fairly cheap.
A good stop- I'll use Casa Sant Andrea again

It was clean and good location near a vaporetto stop so you can move around the city easily... they have those lights that turn on when you walk by, but they didn't really work that well, so the place was always darker and colder than you would like

Casa Sant'Andrea was great value for a hotel on the island of Venice! It was basic but comfortable, in a quiet area on a canal. Breakfast was good also. We were staying only for a night before our cruise, and it worked out well for us. The location was the best part for us, a short walk from Piazzale Roma where you can take the vaporetti (water buses) anywhere around Venice. Good value for Venice!

We choose this hotel based on price and location. We were not disappointed. We were able to take an express bus from the airport to Piazalle Roma the main bus terminal in this part of Venice. It was a 5 min walk to the hotel. We dropped our luggage off, then a 5 min walk back to the Grand Canal. There is also a water taxi station right outside the hotel and near Piazalle Roma. There was also a COOP grocery store between the hotel and the pz Roma Taxi station. We were able pick up water/ snacks for the day of sight seeing. The rooms were comfortable european style rooms. No safe box in the room but the hotel in gerenal seemed very safe. At breakfast they served hot chocolate which was wonderful. The rest of the breakfast was adequate but nothing special. Finally when it came time to get to the cruise ship, the hotel is conviently located right by the "People Mover" or tram. For just 1 Euro the tram took you right to the port.

This place was fantastic. It is clean, inexpensive, quiet, and located near ideal transportation for getting to and from Venice airport and cruise ships. The personnel speak English. A big plus is that we were able to get to the hotel without having to use steps (a miracle in Venice). We had separate rooms with a shared, modern bath. The breakfast provided was great; however, I did not drink the orange juice since reviews had warned that it was mediocre. The only possible negative(for some, not us) is that the rooms did not have TVs.

The hotel was less than 10 mins walk from railway station and 5 mins to bus station and a main vaporetta stop, the facilites are basic but is clean with hot water - I personally don't ask for much more! Breakfast was basic but OK for the price paid in central Venice - I don't think you would fare this well in central London! It was very quiet and felt very safe and secure. The staff were helpful and there was no problem leaving bags at end of stay. Getting around Venice seems extremely confusing at first but would recommend a travel card (is purchased by time) so found buying a ticket valid for 36hours at 23 euros was brilliant value - very convenient and you have the freedom of hopping on and off wherever you choose.
