ABOVE: The Hotel Santa Chiara's location is hard to beat if you're burdened with heavy luggage: It's alongside the Piazzale Roma, where you can catch a shuttle bus or taxi to your ship.

Hotels near Piazzale Roma (for Marittima piers)

Several hotels are in the immediate vicinity of the Piazzale Roma, central Venice's closest point to the main cruise basin, Marittima. From Piazzale Roma, you can reach Marittima on the inexpensive People Mover, by land taxi, or--quite often--by free shuttle buses that go directly to your ship.

These three hotels are directly on the Piazzale Roma, which means you won't have to cross any bridges with heavy luggage.

(Downside: The Piazzale Roma is a busy square with taxis and buses, so you might want to consider one of the other hotels on this page if you want authentic Venetian atmosphere and don't mind a low bridge or two.)

Other hotels within walking distance of the Piazzale Roma:

Palazzo Odoni wellhead with candlesIf 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, photo at right). 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), which 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.

Note: These four hotels are about a 5-minute walk from the Piazzale Roma if you don't stop to read your map.

For a charming and delightful location:

Hotel Ai Due FanaliIf you're willing to walk 7 to 10 minutes and cross two small footbridges, 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 cruise ships:

If you'd like to settle in for a few days before or after a cruise, or if you prefer self-catering flats to hotels and restaurants, a vacation apartment is worth considering. Several are extremely close to the Piazzale Roma and the People Mover to the Marittima cruise terminals:
