Excellent location

The best thing bout this hotel is its location. Peaceful, green and shady, it was a relief to return to our room after some hectic and crowded sightseeing. The staff was very courteous and efficient. The rooms were well appointed, and a good size.The buffet breakfast was excellent.The free internet access was a bonus.

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!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

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!

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.

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.
