A pleasant little hotel with friendly staff. Very steep stairs lead you up to reception floor and then up another flight to the first bedrooms. The rooms although small were furnished well with newly renovated bathrooms. There is quite a lot of noise especially in the early mornings but it is very central a short walk to the Rialto in...

Hotel is very nice, 100 m near piazza San Marco, rooms are small ( common for Venice) but very warm and clean, stuff is so friendly. Some rooms have look to canal, and it is very nice to watch passing gondolas.

We didn't expect much about the hotel since it's place is very nice and prices were average. Room design was fine and there was enough space for a family with a children. It's not that easy to find the hotel if you don't memorize some important close buildings.

Our stay was wonderful! This hotel was very quaint and quiet. Our room was tiny - you couldn't open the bathroom door all the way without hitting the toilet, but it added to the coziness since it was freezing in Venice. Friendly staff and good location. Breakfast was good. Great view of the canals from our balcony.

At the last minute, I was able to make it to Venice and was fortunate that the Antica Locanda al Gambero had availability.

Reviewed 25 November 2016

The hotel is located in the center of Venice and not easy to find. The quality does definitely not lift the price. It is ok but too expensive for what it is. Especially in summer it can be very loud as some rooms do hit the restaurant underneath. The good point is: it is close to the Markusplatz.

It was just what we wanted: good room overlooking a canal and bridge, with gondolas plying below, very good location near restaurants and an excellent bakery, no bridge steps to drag luggage over to the waterbus, helpful staff, adequate breakfast, reasonable price.

I've only given four stars because there's no lift and for some, like me, of a certain age that was a lack. But the staff are all very accommodating and Vincenzo (?) the porter even walked our cases to the Rialto boat stop when we left. This is an ideal location for central tourist attractions - 5 minutes to St...

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
