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.
