Hotel Sant'Elena entranceThe Best Western Premier Hotel Sant'Elena is in a quiet, family-friendly residential neighborhood near the eastern tip of Venice's historic center. It's a relaxing 20- to 25-minute walk along the waterfront from the Piazza San Marco.

The location may feel isolated in the colder months, but in summer, it offers quick access to Venice's Lido beach resort, which is only one vaporetto stop away from the hotel.
