The Casa Peron is an eclectic and artsy one-star hotel, situated on a pedestrian shopping street right on the border of Santa Croce and San Polo. Crammed with art and character, the Peron offers sweet, inexpensive rooms with or without private facilities.
Pros: Great, unique vibe. Homey feel. Excellent value. Hotel “mascot” (Pierino the parrot).
Cons: No elevator. No TV in rooms. Some rooms share toilets.
Gianrico Scarpa’s family has been running the Peron for the last 90 years, and the clan has packed it full of art. There are pieces hanging everywhere, all produced by Signor Scarpa, his friends and visiting guests (art students seem to be, er, drawn to the Casa Peron).
Each of the Casa Peron’s 11 mid-sized guest rooms sports an original piece of artwork, but is otherwise quite simple. Expect white walls, plain wooden furnishings and bright orange-and-red bedding. All but three of the rooms are air conditioned, and none of them have a TV or telephone. Wi-Fi is free and works throughout the building.
Three rooms offer a small private balcony overlooking the back garden (ask ahead). Rooms facing the garden are also, notably, quieter options, as the rooms on the front side overlook a popular pedestrian street.
Bathrooms come in shades of pink and gray, with rounded corner showers for extra space (a real find in Venetian hotels). All rooms have a private shower, but only seven have a private toilet. The rest share toilets in the hall and are about €10-20 cheaper.
The Casa Peron is a simple affair, but it’s simple with style. The unique artwork is one thing, and then there is the friendly family who runs the place, complete with Pierino, the pet parrot who will greet you in the reception (and may squawk from his curtain-rod perch as you climb the stairs to your room).
A continental breakfast is included in the room rate. Note that the Casa Peron has steep, narrow stairs and no elevator.

About the Casa Peron neighborhood
Located just across the bridge from Santa Lucia station, Santa Croce offers some great hotel deals and is fairly easy to navigate. The east side is mostly medieval—architecturally speaking, that is—while the west side of the neighborhood is quite modern. Buses and last-minute car parking lots are located in Santa Croce, at Piazzale Roma.
