About Best Western Premier Hotel Sant' Elena, Venice

4-star former Venetian convent on a peaceful street

Minutes from St Mark's

The Best Western Premier Hotel Sant'Elena is in a tranquil spot, yet you'll be just 5 minutes by vaporetto from bustling St. Mark's Square. From Marco Polo airport it's a 30-minute water taxi ride, or an hour by bus and water bus.

By boat or on foot

If you're in no hurry, take the delightfully scenic 20-minute walk to St Mark's and the city center rather than hopping on the water bus. But you can use the vaporetto to cross the lagoon to the Lido with its golden sands, and to visit Murano, famous for its glassblowers.

Buffet breakfast

There's no better way to start the day than enjoying your buffet breakfast (surcharge) in the former cloister courtyard. Dinner in Valentine's restaurant is à la carte, and can be taken on the terrace.

Free WiFi, soothing decor

All guestrooms feature free WiFi, LCD TVs, and minibars, and are decorated in natural colors and dark woods. Large windows overlook the cloister or the quiet and picturesque alleyways of Sant'Elena.

Great hotel. Staff very accommodating and advised us of tours, water taxi service 3 day pass cheaper than buying pass each day. Drinks and food exceptional. The room was very nice and comfortable. Quiet area near park and close to water taxi. Definitely would stay there again.

Loved, LOVED it!
What an Amazin staff, location and accommodations! I was especially impressed by the staff upon check-in and the overall cleanliness and comfort this location had to offer. Francesca, one of the Front Desk personnel was so, so sweet and helpful and provided us EVERY type of assistance while we wanted to go sightseeing or whatever! And Mos, whom helped with our luggage was so kind and gracious. A++ Recommended

Great quiet place in Venice
If you sit in the garden, you can order drinks, but not dinner. If you sit inside, you can order dinner, but not drinks. The two are 50 ft from each other. A minor gripe though. Overall a really nice quiet place. I would definitely go back.

Check your room
The hotel is fine but they have some rooms that are substandard, and we had one of them. Based on that experience I cannot give a positive review. If you're staying there, insist that you're room has an open view of the courtyard or street before confirming reservations.
