Vaporetto to St Mark's
Though located in a tranquil spot, Best Western Premier Hotel Sant'Elena is only 5 minutes by water bus from bustling St. Mark's Square, and a 20-minute stroll there is equally relaxing. Guests can cross the lagoon to the golden sands of the Lido, or to visit the famous glassblowers of Murano.
Buffet breakfast available
This former convent makes the most of its special architectural features, and guests can enjoy a buffet breakfast (surcharge) in the original cloister courtyard. After a day's sightseeing in Venice, guests can enjoy a romantic à la carte dinner on the terrace of the restaurant, appropriately named Valentine's.
Cloister or alley views
Every room is decorated to complement the convent's original features, using dark woods and muted natural colors. Large windows overlook the cloister or the quiet alleys of Sant'Elena. Modern conveniences include free WiFi, a flat-screen LCD TV, and a minibar.
