      We have stayed two nights at this hotel in Venice. (we are travelling as part of a tour group and didn't choose this hotel.)

      We are sharing a triple room and its really quite large. The ceilings are at least 15ft high and all the rooms seem to be have been renovated recently and are very modern and clean. Our room has a separate bedroom (with king bed), bathroom (with full bath, toilet and bidet) and a lounge room and writing desk area. There are coffee/tea making facilities and in built cupboards with plenty of coat-hangers.

      Its a very quiet neighbourhood and the windows actually open but have great security grilles so you could leave them open all day if you liked. ).(Although we stayed mid-week so it may be different on the weekends

      The location of this hotel:
      Its a fair way out of the main tourist/busy parts of Venice (ie its actually about 30 mins walk to get to St Marco), but this can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your point of view.

      I have stayed in Venice before (twice) once over near bus station (the mainland) and once right in the centre of the city. I personally like the Sant Elena and its quiet elegance. But I could see how a person who had never visited the city before might feel like they were not quite close enough to the action!

      The restaurant was great - offered a great selection of breakfast foods (we didn't eat lunch here), and dinner was also ok.

      The staff were friendly and very attentive and able to act on requests very promptly.

      Overall - we really enjoyed staying at this hotel and I would have to say that it has been my favourite hotel stay of this current 2 week tour.

      This hotel us located just 3minutes from the water bus stop and is very quaint! It's a former convent, so the grounds are very nice.

      ... H2O bus to a stop and while we waited Antonio had another cafe.

      When we met Pepe he really did look like Sylvester Stalone- just as Antonio had said! He was this big, barrel-chested, chipper guy that looked like he could take out just about anyone he liked! But he was extremely sweet and offered to let me stay in his hostel for the night if it didn't work out at Antonio's... (foreshadowing...). We ended up only meeting him for a quick coffee and I got ...

      ... part of this situation was our Italian tour guide called me Dr. Palmer for the rest of the day because he thought I looked like I could be a doctor on Greys Anatomy. It was hysterical as more and more picked up on it throughout the day. But the gondola ride in itself was so cool. It was not a long ride but I get the idea of what a gondola ride would be like and if I ever return I will for sure take a longer ride. ...
