Hotel Santa Chiara


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 promises easy convenience thanks to its central location in Venice's Santa Croce district. Close 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 see more of the city's famous waterways, the hotel has a private dock and there's a vaporetto stop conveniently located near to the hotel's entrance.

Sensitively transformed into a boutique palazzo hotel, Hotel Santa Chiara is made up of two  parts – an original 16th-Century building and a newer white marble wing. While a contrasting exterior, within the hotel there's a classic Venetian feel throughout. Murano glass chandeliers hang from exposed wooden ceilings, and stylish feature walls add an opulent flourish to each room. Choose a Deluxe City View Room to enjoy views of the gardens or Piazzale Roma, or head to a Deluxe Small Canal View Room to make the most of exclusive Rio Novo canal views. Add a touch more indulgence to your stay and opt for a Deluxe Grand Canal View Room; these are larger and more refined in style, with Rubelli silk wall features and iconic Grand Canal views.

Before you head out for a day of sightseeing, start your morning with a hearty buffet breakfast at the hotel. Dine in the comfort of your own room or head downstairs to eat in front of views overlooking the Grand Canal. After your city adventures, head back to the hotel for an aperitif – make the most of the quaint rooftop terrace to drink in a stylish panorama of wonderful city views.
