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.

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.

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.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Buy the multi-day pass on the vaparetto from Venice-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.

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)

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

great location for exploring Venice

Quiet and away from the main Venice tourist spots but only 30 mminute walk from them. Nice breakfast in morning. Extremely courteous and friendly staff.

one of best hotels in Italy

This was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at ever!!! We had two rooms both with great views. A bit of a walk to the square but it was a great walk. If you are ariving be cruise ship take the private water taxi to the hotel, it is worth the extra euros. The water taxi drops you off right behind the hotel.
