We find ourselves in beautiful Venice, trying to focus on today, and not the stressful decisions of the next few days. More on that in a minute. Having left our cruise behind, we were on our own here for a night before our flight to Paris. Our accommodation here turned out to be pretty special and unique. It was a further 20 minute walk from the check in reception. We left our packs, and took just day/night bags on a hike through Venice in search of our room. Over ...
... Euros. Hannah is no longer allowed to order any food or drinks on her own!!! After refreshing ourselves, we went and stood in line for the St Marks Basilica. This was quite long but at least it was moving fast! When we got inside, the tour was free, but before she could enter Hannah was made to pay 2 euros to purchase some pieces of material to act as a shawl and long skirt - apparently she was too provocatively dressed in her shorts and singlet! (In ...
... a glass while watching a jazz ensemble play in one of the busier piazzas. Whoops. Those two glasses of wine cost us what a bottle would have anywhere else! We will not be making that mistake again. We wandered around until we found a very small bar tucked away at the end of a street. We had a bottle of wine and headed back to the hostel. Apparently everything closes at 11pm in Venice. I guess we'll just have to start the party a little earlier tomorrow ...
... out which boat to take in order to get back to our hotel. Our boat was packed with people and so weighed down that it seemed like we had inches before the water started pouring through the windows. As soon as we had our bearings straight we exited the boat and walked the rest of the way to our hotel. Our concierge dude gave us some great restaurant recommendations and we set off into the Jewish sector of Venice. Thankfully, ...
... find it so fascinating.
First stop was a glass blowing demonstration. The man created a piece of art in no time. We then were given a talk about the different colours of glass, how they are created and how strong the glass is. The guy was thunking the glasses down on a mirror with quite a lot of force and nothing broke. Everything was extravagantly beautiful with nothing in our price range. We could, however, afford to enjoy wandering through the shop admiring the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Sant'Andrea Venice
After searching for what felt like forever, and was probably 30-45 minutes, we finally found the hotel. Make sure you get directions from the hotel before getting to Venice. That said, our room was quite lovely, possibly the nicest of the 6 we stayed in during our visit to italy. The bathroom and shower were good-sized and very clean. We were a bit disappointed at first with the location. It is quite far from the St. Mark's area and near the train and bus stations. If that is not important to you, than this is definitely the place to stay. It was very reasonably priced and the folks at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. Because it was at the start of the vaporetto stops, it was quite easy to hop on and get a good seat to the center of the city. And, the walk to and from the St. Mark's area was always an adventure and great for walking off the day's meal!
Having stayed in other hotels further down the Grand Canal and found them overpriced and over rated, this hotel could not be bettered for value for money if you want a budget hotel.
Canal side hotel at a giveaway price
This is a great hotel and very convenient for transport. The people are friendly and speak English. It was very cheap - we went in March and I started to worry that it might be ghastly because of the price - but no. It's not flash but spotless.It was originally a monastery and overlooks a canal - what more could you want in Venice? I suppose people might think it's off the beaten track but it didn't take long to walk to the centre. Also it's near San Croce and San Polo - these are great areas. I was very grateful for the review that explained how to find it.....from the Piazzala Roma bus stop look for the multi storey car park,walk towards it until you see an information kiosk - walk part this until you hit the canal - turn right and the hotel is a few yards along.
Stayed at the Casa Sant' Andrea from 16 - 20 March 2006 and had a fantastic time in Venice. Hotel is in an excellent location near the Piazzale Roma which is the main bus station for Venice and also a main hub for the waterbus system.
The Casa Sant'Andrea is a great place to stay if you don't want to splash out too much on a trip to Venice. It is unbelieveably cheap compared to other Venice hotels, yet the standard of the hotel does not dissapoint. I have no bad words to say about this hotel, it was clean, the staff were helpful, the location is good especially if you are getting the coach from the airport to Venice, and rooms are spacious, our bathroom was immaculate, spacious and had all modern fixtures, clean towels everyday and toiletries, we even had a view over the canal from both bedroom and bathroom windows!
We stayed in this hotel during the 2006 carnival.
Schönes Haus das sanft restauriert wurde, wenige Gehminuten vom Bahnhof.
Ruhige sehr grosse Zimmer, Badezimmer mit Bidet, Schlafzimmer mit Tel, ohne TV und Minibar. Sehr freundlicher Service.
Grosszugiges Frühstück. Ausgezeichnetes Preis/Leisungsverhältniss. Kann nichts negatives über das Haus sagen. Abosolut Empfehlenswert!

The Casa Sant' Andrea is a fabulous choice for anyone who wants to spend some time in Venice and doesn't want to be ripped off for the pleasure.
My sister & I stayed at the Casa Sant' Andrea for 2 nights in early August. We got great rates through the Easyjet website. It's a former 16th century monastery that has been renovated. The location is great - just a few minutes walk from the bus station (from which we arrived from the airport) & from the main boat stop. The hotel fronts a smaller canal just off the Grand Canal. The rooms are modern & clean and the bathroom quite large! No TV, fridge etc but if you're not planning to spend a lot of time in your hotel it's not a problem! The staff were extremely helpful, and there is cheap internet in the foyer. The breakfast is better than other hotels we stayed at in europe - crossaints, rusks, pastries, & crackers with various toppings, juice & a coffee. Loved it, would definitely stay here again!
An enjoyable stay at the Casa Sant' Andrea
My mother and I stayed at the Casa Sant' Andrea from May 31 to June 6, 2003. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My mother walks with a cane and the staff let us use the service elevator to get up to our room on the third floor. There is no regular elevator for passengers. It was a fairly quiet neighborhood with a nearby church and very close to the major terminal for the water buses.
