Hotel Santa Chiara 

Where life is easy

Venetian style combines with a great central location at this boutique hotel by the Grand Canal.

Overlooking the Grand Canal and Piazzale Roma, this 500-year-old former monastery, with its newer white marble wing, is conveniently located in Venice’s Santa Croce district. Close to the cruise terminal and opposite the train station, there are plenty of local shops, restaurants and museums all within walking distance – the iconic landmarks of the Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s Basilica are only a half-hour walk away. To access the city’s famous waterways, the hotel has a private dock, while there’s a vaporetto stop conveniently near the hotel entrance.

Why we love Hotel Santa Chiara
