Who we are


Romantic emotion

Picture yourself aboard the “vaporetto”, the public transportation of Venice, with final destination BEST WESTERN PREMIER Hotel Sant’Elena. On your left a row of palazzo (palaces) overlooking the lagoon and the magnificent St. Mark’s Square, with its renowned Bell Tower and the historical Basilica. 

Suddenly, in the blink of an eye, the landscape starts to shift; the buildings of the city center have completely disappeared to make room for lush green and majestic trees: you have reached the shore of the island of Sant’Elena.

Dock the floating waterbus landing and disembark in the heart of Parco delle Rimembranze, where children run and play cheerfully, mothers push their strollers, distinguished gentlemen walk their dogs, and artists carry their easels under their arms…..a glimpse of everyday life that’s authentically Venetian. Cross the wide paved alleyway surrounded by lush shady trees to reach Calle Buccari  just a few meters away.

You have arrived to your final destination, the BEST WESTERN PREMIER Hotel Sant’Elena, your stylish and contemporary 4 star hotel right in the greenest heart of Venice.

Outside, its tall walls and impressive features evoke memories of a distant past: a former convent, the building has been refurbished with special attention given to the preservation of the original structure.

Inside, the crisp, sleek design blends with traditional accents, to create a glamorous boutique Hotel that will surely make your visit to the magical lagoon city unforgettable.

After the initial welcome, our attentive and professional staff will escort you to your room of choice, Deluxe, Junior Suite, Kids or Superior Suite. Different sizes, same standard of quality and contemporary design. All our rooms are homey and flooded with natural sunlight thanks to the oversized windows opening onto the narrow alleyways or the inner courtyard. Carefully preserving the original architectural features, the BEST WESTERN PREMIER Hotel Sant’Elena is built around the inner courtyard, once the convent cloister, which in summer provides the ideal place to spend the afternoon relaxing during your stay at your 4 star Hotel in Venice.

In the evening, opt for an exquisite and cozy dinner in our restaurant Valentine’s. Our a’ la carte menu offers traditional venetian dishes created by our talented Chef. If you prefer to eat out, ask us for advice on the best local food.

In the morning there’s plenty to choose from on our carefully and lavishly loaded tables: a slice of cake, bread and jam or ham, cheese and eggs? Take your time; you can linger around until 11am.

And now ready- set- go and discover Venice!
