ABOVE: Venice airport buses and land taxis arrive and depart near the four-star Hotel Santa Chiara, which is alongside the Piazzale Roma overlooking the Grand Canal.

Cruise passengers: The hotels on this page are good choices if you're arriving or departing at the Marittima cruise port, which is a only a short ride from the Piazzale Roma on the luggage-friendly People Mover. (If your ship is at the San Basilio pier, you can reach it easily by taxi.)

The following hotels are within easy reach of the Piazzale Roma if you don't mind hauling your luggage around the corner or over a bridge or two:

  • Booking.com

  • Hotel Alloggi Locanda MarinellaAlloggi  Marinella (3-star equivalent), a personal favorite, has unusually high guest ratings from Venere and Booking.com users. The inn's location is just about perfect: It's just a block from the Piazzale Roma, away from the parking garages and boat platforms but close enough for early airport-bus departures or catching a taxi to the cruise terminal.

    The Alloggi Marinella also has a garden where you can sit and relax in warm weather. If your budget allows, spend a little extra for a superior room with a walled private patio.  (We stayed in a room with patio for a couple of days before an MSC Eastern Mediterranean cruise. See our illustrated Alloggi Marinella review.) Check lowest rates, reviews, and availability:

  • Hotel Arlecchino (3 stars) is on the Fondamenta delle Burchielle, about 100 meters from the airport buses and taxis in the Piazzale Roma. Singles, doubles, triples, and quads are available, and guests have access to the garden of the Best Bestern Olimpia next door. (We booked through our hotel partner at a bargain rate and got a room with a canal view.) Check lowest rates, reviews, and availability

  • Hotel Gardena (3 stars) is about three minutes from the Piazzale Roma, with two tiny bridges to cross, but you might think it's in a different world: The hotel is on a delightful neighborhood canal, and the cafes along the water are often filled with university students and professors.

  • Hotel Papadopli VeneziaHotel Papadopoli Venezia (4 stars) is just beyond the public gardens that are reached via a low footbridge from the Piazzale Roma.

Other hotels within walking distance of the Piazzale Roma:

If you prefer to be a little more distant from the buses, boats, and bustle of the Piazzale Roma, you could try Al Sole (3 stars), the Carlton on the Grand Canal (4 stars), or a Venetian mansion that doubles as a boutique hotel, the Palazzo Odoni (3 stars). Please note that the term "distant" is relative: All of these hotels are within a five- to 10-minute walk of the Piazzale Roma, depending on your speed.

photoOr you could book a room at the Falier (2 stars, photo at left), which is a 10-minute walk from the Piazzale Roma but is handy to one of the liveliest squares in Venice, the Campo Santa Margherita. It's an appealing choice if you're traveling with nothing larger than a midsized wheeled suitcase.

Hotel Ai Due FanaliIf you don't mind walking across two small bridges, you won't go wrong with the cozy Ai Due Fanali (see our illustrated review), the Ca' Nigra Lagoon Resort with its huge garden, or the Canal Grande. All three hotels are on the Campo San Simeon Grande, a lovely and peaceful little square where you can sit on a park bench and watch boat traffic on the Grand Canal.

Apartments near Piazzale Roma:

If you prefer self-catering flats to hotels and restaurants, a vacation apartment is worth considering. Several are extremely close to Piazzalr Roma with its airport buses and land taxis:

  • Venicedire is located right next to the Piazzale Roma. It's a very modern one-bedroom flat on the ground floor (three steps up from the sidewalk), making it convenient if you have heavy luggage. The living room has a sofa bed. As a bonus, you can park on site (albeit for a steep daily fee).

  • Sofia is a nicely renovated apartment on the Fondamenta Santa Chiara, by the vaporetto platforms and not far from the Santa Chiara Hotel. It's very atmospheric, thanks to its exposed roof beams and joists, and it has plenty of space for families, with a bedroom plus three sofa beds in the living room.

  • Le Burchielle is close to Piazzale Roma on the Fondamenta Burchielle, down the street from the Best Western Hotel Olimpia. It has two bedrooms (one with a queen bed, the other with two twins) and has a light, modern, airy decor.

  • Garden Houses are a few short streets and two small bridges away from Piazzale Roma, a block bey0nd the Alloggi Marinella. Three apartments are available: A two-bedroom split-level with terrace, a one-bedroom with terrace, and an upstairs one-bedroom without terrace.
