Hotel Review: Hotel Indigo Sant’Elena, Venice
A creative and design-led boutique hotel situated in a quiet street on tranquil Sant'Elena island at the eastern tip of Venice. Enjoy excellent food and cocktails, a quiet inner courtyard garden (which some rooms lead out to) and stylish rooms with vintage touches and private terraces.
Rooms available from £122.91 per night
Your expert reviewer
The hotel is situated in tranquil Sant'Elena, an authentic, almost suburban part of the city, far from the crowds of St Mark's Square (although only a 15-minute walk away). The former convent is hidden away down a quiet street, just moments from the verdant expanse of the Biennale Gardens.
By plane: flights from London to Venice take 2 hours. Take an airport boat (1 hour 20 minutes) to reach the hotel, or a water taxi. Book flights to Venice.
THE LOOK AND FEEL
Enter into the former 1930s convent and you know you've stepped into a boutique hotel. Natural light floods in from the floor-to-ceiling doors that lead out to the courtyard garden and is balanced with artificial light from low-hung glass pendants. Plants line every shelf and teal velvet drapes dress the windows.
From a warm welcome on arrival to a cheerful explanation of the menu in the restaurant, you will be well looked after here. The internal garden is a tranquil place to relax after the crowds of the centre. You can organise transfers and tickets at the reception.

There is a great atmosphere in Savor, where a menu of simple Italian dishes is prepared with the freshest local produce; plates arrive at the table bursting with flavour. A classic Parmigiana di melanzane is a beautifully presented stack of aubergine, mozzarella, parmesan and tomato with sprigs of fresh basil.
