Great hotel to stay in, not central but less than a minutes walk from the st elena bus stop which affords you a great trip down the grand canal to reach it, staff we're very friendly and there was an excellent choice of food for breakfast. Hotel was very clean and tidy, would definitely recommend.

I gave the location a 4 because it's out of the main area, however it's 30 seconds from the st elena water bus stop. Would definitely go there again, very nice hotel.

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.

Quiet neighborhood, walkable to tourist areas

We only stayed for one night, but the staff we very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean, comfortable and the bathrooms were large relative to many other hotels. The restaurant was average, good breakfast included. This is in a quieter more residential area, but still within comfortable walking distance to popular tourist areas.

Great Place to Stay

The rooms were great, clean, well appointed. THe location was away from the noise with a garden to sit and relax in. Most of the staff was very helpful They could use a concierge to provide visiter information and assistance. Breakfast was very nice THe price was very good, Would definitely stay here again.

Very comfortable place in very expensive town

Generally, hotel rooms in Venice are small, expensive, in old buildings and not "good value" by US standards. But the Sant Elena (while still not cheap) is a good value when compared to its local competitors. Fairly recently renovated, the rooms are very comfortable with modern facilities. The staff is friendly and efficient. It's NOT on the Grand Canal or St. Marks square, but it's only a couple of stops away on the vaparetto... a 20-30 minute stroll if you want to hoof it. And room prices are downright "thrifty" compared to all the other 4 star hotels on the island.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Buy the multi-day pass for the vaparetto (water "bus") from Vence-unica if you're in town for 3 or more days (2 or more if you're under 29). It's THE way to get around in Venice.
