The 8 Best Hotels Near the Venice Train Station

Anyone visiting Venice will likely arrive at or around the area of its main train station, the Venezia Santa Lucia. It’s the last stop for trains arriving from mainland Italy, and it’s a short walk from the Piazzale Roma, the terminal for buses from the airports that serve Venice. Several vaporetto (the Venetian water bus) stops dot the area of Venezia Santa Lucia; there are gondola docks nearby; and of course the whole area overlooks the majestic Grand Canal. In short, even though there are a lot of excellent accommodations all around Venice — such as the top-rated Hotel Moresco and Scalon del Doge — the hotels and B&Bs located around the Venice train station are the perfect base for exploring Venice.

This article will have three main sections:

  • Quick look – a summary of the most important details of each hotel in table form

Our Picks

There’s a reason the Hotel Antiche Figuri is among the most highly ranked and highly rated accommodations in Venice. It’s splendidly decorated, overlooks the Grand Canal, and doesn’t break the bank. Children are allowed into the hotel, so it’s the perfect option for families.

The Palazzetto Foscari is for a special occasion — a honeymoon, for example — where money is no object. 

For comfort, convenience, and value for money, however, the Abbazia De Luxe is hard to beat. If you want to splurge a bit, you have the choice of a double room or a suite with views of the Grand Canal. Plus, the hotel is the same side of the canal as the train station so there’s no need to lug bags through the stairs of the Ponte degli Scalzi bridge. 

But whichever accommodation you choose, you’ll be assured of the convenience of being a stone’s throw or two away from the Venezia Santa Lucia train station, with all the convenience that entails. Book now!
