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.

We woke up this morning feeling a little under the weather since we had a toga party the night before. We took a shuttle from our camp to Venice, although the Italian man driving the shuttle didn't feel like dropping us off in the correct location, so we had to walk a while to even get into town. We started the morning with a walking tour of the city with the whole group, the tour ended at a lace shop where we learned how they make hand made lace. We spent some time ...

... flatlands around Padua. The wait in between the trains went quite quickly, as I got talking with an awesome guy who was also in the dismal waiting room and we struck up quite a friendship which was pretty nice – it seems that sitting in dingy stations is a better bet than attending university in order to build a social life in Italy! As a wintry darkens had fallen by the time had fallen by the time I clambered up onto the 2-hour leg to Trieste (elevated platforms don’t ...
