In nice weather, you can have breakfast on a rooftop terrace. BELOW: This aerial photo shows the railroad station's location at the edge of Venice's historic center.

In many cities, hotel districts near railroad stations can be depressing, and sometimes they're even dangerous. Not so in Venice: The streets near Santa Lucia Railway Station may be busy and geared to tourists, but the atmosphere is pleasant enough, and the convenience is hard to beat if you're spending only two or three days in Venice.

Many of the hotels in this article are on or near the Rio Terà Lista di Spagna (usually shortened to "Lista di Spagna"), the first segment of the main pedestrian thoroughfare between the station and the Piazza San Marco.

The Lista di Spagna is a lively place of hotels, restaurants, and souvenir shops, but you'll also find plenty of businesses that serve local residents. And when you get tired of looking at souvenir t-shirts or carnival masks, you can cross the Cannaregio Canal to explore the Venetian Ghetto and the many local shops, restaurants, and cafés along the connecting streets that feed into the Strada Nova.

Best of all, you can reach the hotels in the first section of these listings area without crossing bridges--a great convenience if you're using a rolling suitcase.

We've also included listings of hotels across the Grand Canal. These hotels require crossing a bridge (or, in some cases, several bridges). Choose them if you're looking for a less "touristy" neighborhood or if you want to be close to the Piazzale Roma for an early airport or cruise departure.

Please note:

All of the hotels in this section are within very easy reach of the station, usually without crossing any bridges. (In some cases, the walk is only a minute or two.) We suggest leaving the station via the convenient side exit near Platform 1, which will lead you down to the water via a gently-sloping sidewalk.

Hotels across the Grand Canal

If you're traveling light, the sestiere or district of Santa Croce is worth considering. The neighborhood attracts fewer tourists than the area around the station, and it's especially convenient to major art museums and other attractions in Santa Croce, San Polo, and Dorsoduro.

Below are listings for hotels that are within a reasonable walk of the Ponte dei Scalzi (the bridge that crosses the Grand Canal near the railroad station). We've divided them into two groups, with the second being especially handy to the Piazzale Roma.

Santa Croce West

The hotels below are on or near the fondamenta that runs along the Grand Canal to your right as you leave the Ponte dei Scalzi bridge. (You can also reach them via the Piazzale Roma, which is to your right and over the modern Calatrava Bridge as you leave the railroad station. Click the hotel names, and you'll be taken to directions pages with maps that show how to reach the hotels.)

The hotels listed below are especially handy if you're connecting to or from the airport, because Venice airport buses depart from the Piazzale Roma nearby. Taxis, shuttle buses, and the People Mover  to the Marittima Cruise Terminals also leave from the Piazzale Roma.
