The Hotel Antiche Figure is a charming mid-range boutique option in Santa Croce, a calm neighborhood near the train station that's removed from the tourist sights. The 22 rooms are all spacious and stately (if not luxurious) with crystal chandeliers; some have balconies with fantastic views of the Grand Canal, while others have views of a brick wall. Modern touches include flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Upscale bathrooms have marble tile, towel warmers, and bidets; many have shower/tub combos, but some have walk-in showers that can spill water onto the bathroom floor. Hotel amenities are few: just a breakfast room, communal terrace, and bar.
