This small and simple three-star boutique hotel is a rare find in Venice: well-located, near most of the city’s attractions (a 10-minute walk) and has lovely gardens and a patio, an almost impossible find at hotels in town. Do not expect an upscale stay, as everything about the Sant’Antoni is simple but pretty. The friendly reception staff will welcome you straight into the hotels hallmark, its gardens, where breakfast is served if weather allows. Rooms are spacious and simple with some elegant touches. Most importantly, they are airy, an essential feature considering Venice can get hermetic at times. Most rooms face the gardens, some have terraces and others access to a patio, which are seldom found in Venice.
