Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Sant'Andrea Venice
Very nice room
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!
Hope to return
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.
Rooms are simply furnished but very comfortable.
Bathrooms excellent - spacious and spotless. Fresh thick towels every day.
Buffet breakfast is fresh orange, croissants, toasts, crackers, cheese,hot drinks.
Above all, the situation of the hotel is ideal.
Piazzale Roma with airport bus connections is only a couple of minutes walk- no struggling with cases on crowded water buses.
The top of the Grand Canal with water-bus connections is only round the corner.
There is also a very useful Co-Op supemarket and a Post Office at the canal side.
This hotel provides all that I would ask for when staying in Venice- value for money and location location location.
The only drawback I found was that its rooms are on 2 floors with very steep stairs - There is a rather temperamental lift but is apparently only for luggage-no people were allowed to use it.
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.
Fantastic Value in a good location
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 staff were friendly and helpful, the room was spacious and clean, the ensuite bathroom appeared nearly new and was very large. The breakfast although simple and continental in style was very pleasant and there was plenty of it.
I believe the hotel is an old monastery and has high ceilings and a courtyard to the side and lots of character.
On our last morning we had to leave early to catch an early flight 20 minutes before the starting time for breakfast. When I asked if there was any chance we could grab an early breakfast the guy behind reception said unfortunately not as the hot drinks weren't ready yet but he rushed off and grabbed bottles of orange juice and croissants and made up a packed breakfast for us on the spot.
For the price we paid (£23 a night for the room) this place is astounding value and an absolute gem. Really can't speak highly enough of it.
Excellent value for money A+
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!
It is on the edge of Venice island, the last point for cars and coaches, and so takes around 15 mins on the water bus to get to Rialto and 30mins to St Marks Square, but is is located near the main boat station so no problems with transport. I was really impressed with what we got for our money and i'm sure you will be too!
Great value hotel in Venice
We stayed in this hotel during the 2006 carnival.
Don't be put off by the price of this little gem, the rooms are spotless and towels and bathrooom/beds cleaned and made daily. Rooms are basic in terms of you get a bed and wardrobe plus bathroom (in most cases, confirm when booking), drinks are available and a priced reasonably at reception, €2 for a beer and €0.84 for a coffee.
Breakfast consists of a selection of rolls, cakes and crackers, jams, nutella, cheese spread, bottle of fresh orange and a selection of tea or coffee (go for the Italien, just the perfect pick-up!) If you expect a buffet or fry-up, don't bother. We found the breafast to be enough, kids loved it.
It takes just over half an hour on the water bus to get to heart of Venice, if you want to walk, it takes just under 40 mins on an enchanting winding stroll through Venice.
The hotel is based aprox five mins from where Ryanair bus drops off. The one pain is finding the Hotel, here is the best tip you will get, when in the plaza roma, look for the multi storey car park, head towards it, when you see an information desk in the centre of the road, walk past it towards the canal, when you get to the canal turn right and the hotel is one hundred yards on the right.
The location is good, no noise from the roads nearby, you will be woken at 7am by the bells in the Church.
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!

This is a great little hotel in a fabulous city
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.
We stayed in a reasonably sized room for four nights. It was very clean and overlooked the adjacent canal. Sheets and towels were changed every day. The breakfasts were simple continental style, but were more than adequate.
The position of the hotel is ideal as it is right next to the Piazzale Roma vaporetto (canal bus) station. There is also a large supermarket (COOP) nearby. Don't be put off by the bus station and large multi-storey car parks when you arrive as the street that the hotel is on is very quiet and safe. In fact, Venice is perhaps the safest city that we have ever stayed in. The staff were always extremely helpful and pleasant and typically spoke good English.
We loved our stay in the Casa Sant' Andrea and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants a good, inexpensive hotel in Venice.
Fantastic Hotel, Great Location, Great Price!
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.

This is clearly a lie, but the group of 4 tourists probably never had any shot at getting ...
