This hotel was modern and really nice in this ancient city of Venice. It might look off far in Venice when looking at the map, but is a 15-20 min vaporetto ride away (the station is like less than 5 mins walk). Its nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of touristy Venice. The hotel recommended a nice family restaurant with in walking distance that had amazing lasagna. There was a lush American-style breakfast buffet included in our price every morning, which was delicious and great. They serve delicious fruit, lattes and espressos - your choice!
The only negative is as some other reviewers mentioned, the front desk staff is not friendly - so just expect that and the experience will be fine. We used free wifi in public areas.
It was our 2nd trip to Venice, and you can do a really nice walk to St. Marco's Square from the hotel - very enjoyable. Last time we stayed in Lido, and I would recommend staying at Sant' Elena instead!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our romantic boutique hotel owes its secluded ambiance to the former convent in which it is housed and of which it still retains much of the original structure: the high walls and the imposing façade conceal unexpected gems such as the impressive spiral staircase and the amazing garden furnished with comfortable chaise-lounges. Venice, with its historic center and beautiful architecture, can be reached with a pleasant stroll along Riva degli Schiavoni, or in just a few minutes by waterbus. ... more less
