Bottom Line

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.

Location

On the Grand Canal in Santa Croce, removed from most tourist sights

Map of Hotel Antiche Figure

The hotel is located right on the Grand Canal, which is the main thoroughfare in Venice. It is right across the canal from the train station, so this part of the waterway can see a lot of traffic and crowds, but the deeper you go into the neighborhood, the quieter it gets. This is not one of the main tourist areas -- the major attractions are on or around Piazza San Marco, located a 25-minute walk from the hotel.

  • 21-minute drive or 32-minute train ride to Marco Polo Airport
  • 3-minute walk to the train station
  • 13-minute walk to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection
  • 17-minute walk to Rialto Bridge, the oldest bridge in Venice
  • 25-minute walk to Piazza San Marco (St Mark's Square)
  • 27-minute walk to the Bridge of Sighs
  • 27-minute walk to Punta della Dogana, home to 15th-century architecture
