pretty much an oasis

Being in Venice at the tail end of August is often marked by wading through hordes of tourists. Hotel Sant'Alena, a short vaporetto ride away from the center of Venice, proved a lovely respite from the hustle of San Marco and its environs. Staff were great, providing us with converters, excellent restaurant recommendations, cold beers, and so on at a moment's notice. The main sections of the Biennale and Arsenal were 15 minutes' walk away. Highly recommended!

Ask at the desk, as we did, for the address of a terrific fish restaurant named 'la franzia'...on the expensive side, but worth it, and really romantic...there's also an amazing, authentic pizza joint just around the corner from this fish place...starts with a 't'...sorry i don't remember the actual name...but truly incredible stuff, and cheap!

Good Service

The staff was over all great! Very polite and helpful. The waiting staff in the restaurant was great as well! Great food, very fresh and tasty. Our room was good. The walls and ceiling looked like they needed a paint job. The ceiling had some water stains and walls were scratched. The thermostat wasn't too great either. Our room was very warm even when we had the air on. Having the window open was much cooler. The location was a little out of the way but it's only a pleasant 20 - 30 minute walk to San Marco. It's away from all the touristy areas, so you definitely won't be bothered by any unnecessary noise when you're trying to sleep.

Modern hotel in Old world Venice

The hotel rooms were very clean, modern and well appointed. The location was a little far from the tourist attractions in Venice which could be a good thing is you are trying to relax. The location is great for those attending the Venice Biennale but it might be a little far from the action of San Marco. Open restaurants also seem the be scarse around the hotel in the evening.

Its about a 20 - 30 min walk from the hotel to Piazza de San Marco. About 15 min to restaurant open in the evening.

great location

nice quiet location, very easy to get to by water taxi from airport, a pleasant 20min stroll and you're at san marco square, or hop on the water taxis a 5 min walk from the hotel, and it's before they get to the busy stops so you can get a good position for views of the grand canal. hotel breakfast included was great hot & cold buffet, cereals and giant bowl of fruit that kept getting re-filled (especially enjoyed the fresh pastries and cakes), and the food choices accomodates for adults and children. only 2 problems - all the lights go on in the bedroom when you open the door - which isnt very practical if one person / child has gone to bed before the others. would have been convienant to have a toliet on the same floor as the restaurant / bar - but wouldn't stop me from visting again tho. the local Spritz aperitif drink v nice & aim to eat gelato every day of your trip :O)

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

bus is cheap, but goes to one end of town. recommend the water taxi from the airport if you are staying anywhere near san marco or east of there - check which stop you need, and which lines run to it. buy a 24 / 48 / 72 hour pass for the water buses - gets you everywhere around venice - can't use for the water taxi from the airport tho changing at Lido from water taxi to the water bus lines is very easy - red (rossa) line less frequent but gets there much quicker than the blue, also doesn't stop at as stops on the way. if there is a group 5-8 you can get a speedboat from airport to desitination stop for c.€100 total - much quicker that the water taxi if you have the extra bit of cash to spare. Don't miss out on a visit to Burano (via Murano - glass blowing island als a must see) beautiful coloured buildings to wander round - included in the water buspasses

Awful room

It was ok. Excep the room was full of fluff and the bed linen wasnt changed and the room wasnt any bigger than a child's bedroom at home. Food was ok but a bit limited menu. Service was good and the location is quiet and with easy access to waterbus and centre of the city.

Above average isolated hotel in the area

The hotel is nice on an isolated region in Venice which is away from tourist traps. On a bad note, that the hotel is isolated and there isn't much of a selection around the area. Secondly, the staff doesn't make useful suggestions on where to eat or visit around the area.

Hotel for Carnevale

The hotel was nice but very expensive for Carnevale. We arrived late and there were no restaurants close by and no food at the hotel. It was a 20-30 minute walk to Piazza San Marco.
