A little overpriced, but worht it for a one night stay.

I was only in Venice for one night (but two full days), and therefore wanted a chain hotel so I didn't have any problems with bag storage and the like. This hotel was perfect in that regard. Staff was friendly and helpful, and the room spacious, comfortable, and clean. The only drawback is the location. Located in the "tail" of the island, it's quite the hike by foot from the main part of Venice to the hotel. Water Taxis are quick, but expensive ($EUR 40), and the water bus is about an hour ride. However, once there you're smack dab in the middle of a lush, tranquil residential neighborhood and you've seen the sites of Venice by water in getting there. For it's location, I feel it's slightly overpriced considering the cost it takes to reach it, but other than that I was very pleased with my stay and would definitely stay here again.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

Hotel offers a free shuttle to Moreno, the nearby island known for its glass blowing. The shuttle includes a free tour, and is an amazing deal if you have the time.

Great value in Venice

The hotels near St. Marks Square, or on the Grand Canal are all small rooms and high prices. The St. 'Elana has spacious rooms (by European standards average for American standards) and is much more reasonably priced (again, versus local comparables). It's a 30 min walk from St. Marks, or a 10 min Vaporetto (water bus) ride. 3 minute walk to the local soccer stadium (Italian 2nd division). Unless you need to be in the middle of the action after midnight, and will sacrifice space and $$ to be there, this is a good choice.

Lovely hotel, convenient location

Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfasts. Quiet location but still within easy reach of St Marco. Only issue was aircon didn't seem to work very effectively but room cooled when we opened the window.

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.

Rooms well done

For a Best Western the rooms were well done. The bed was not comfortable and the staff was not friendly.
