Hotel Santa Chiara **** S
Hotel Santa Chiara overlooks the Grand Canal, the Train Station and Piazzale Roma (the only part of Venice reachable by car). It’s also very close to the cruise terminal and few minutes by car from the Marco Polo airport. It is the only hotel in Venice with private parking (on request only)!!! It is few minutes walk from San Marco square (or few minutes by water bus, which stops almost in front of the hotel).
It has just been renovated perfect mix between a 500 years old monastery and a modern marble building! The two are attached together and are one big building even if from outside they looks two completely different thing. Also the furniture reflex this mix: a modern venetian décor with a lot of charm and attention on every detail. The breakfast room, the bar and the lobby overlook the Grand Canal! We also have a rooftop terrace on the white section which is also overlooking the Grand Canal.
The area is full of attractions, Santa Croce is in the historical center. Facing Church of the Scalzi and the Church of San Simeon Piccolo, 10-minute walk from the hotel there are museums (natural history museum, Jewish ghetto, great school of San Rocco, big school of the Carmini, Ca 'rezzonico, etc .. .), churches (San Pantalon, San Simeone, Basilica dei Frari, church of San Rocco, church of the Carmini, church of the angel Raffaele ...), shops, restaurants and bars of all kinds and for all pockets.
