We visited Venice in May 2016 for my husbands birthday. I booked the Superior Double Room which is meant to bigger than the classic, however the hotel rooms were very small and bathroom were very compact. The breakfast (which there was an extra charge for) was the worst breakfast I have ever had with extremely limited options. The only egg...

Very cold welcome at the reception, tiny room with tiny window and a lot of noise. Luckily it was just a stay for one night, as you don't really want to spend more time there. Very very bad coffee at breakfast - totally shocked to have filter coffee with milk instead of cappucino in Italy!

We were given a tiny room with two twin beds placed end to end as it was the only way to fit them in. Service is hard to come by - you have to actively seek it out. Tired and mediocre. We will not return to this hotel - it is the worst I have stayed in for many many...

Like other reviewers have noted - hardest beds ever; double bed was actually two twins pushed together; cheap breakfast (did not wait for water in instant eggs to reconstitute); very small room; had to lay on floor to access room safe bolted to bottom closet; not digital friendly re charging unit access; pillow reminded me of a camel hair pillow;...

I paid 200 Euros for a room that was so small the door needed to open into the corridor. Overall the hotel is very tired and not worth the money. The final insult was the water taxi ordered from the reception to our new accomodation booked on Airbnb, 70 Euros for a five minute journey.

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.

“We liked the garden room. A room on upper floor that is facing the garden or the canal might be nice.”
