Comfortable hotel situated centrally in Venice. The service was friendly and helpful and the rooms clean and smart. Good coffee in the morning and quick service at breakfast. We would definitely stay there again when in Venice.

This hotel was literally situated 5 minutes on foot from Piazza San Marco, so very central and close to all the touristic sites and we could walk everywhere and not have to get vaporetti. The rooms are small but prettily decorated in a venetian style and comfortable. The bathroom is really tiny but modern and well equipped with everything you... More

Excellent location, excellent service, excellent breakfast, excellent (though typically expensive) restaurant downstairs. Some of the rooms overlook a canal if that's your thing, but be wary of mosquitoes. Free wi-fi is provided though I preferred to use of the two terminals downstairs (also free). Some noise permeates from outside and the corridor but what can you do? No elevator so... More

This hotel was really great, and so much better than the previous hotel we had stayed in. The rooms were well decorated in beige colours, not the heavy reds and gold fabrics found elsewhere, and were comfortable with even a small desk. Although my room was on the 4th floor, a porter was summoned to carry my suitcase to my... More

stayed four nights, the only good thing about it was the friendly reception and service. The location is good, except that it is noisy, and there are no elevators in the hotel. The beds are terrible, and the bathroom, even though it's clean and modern, gets flooded everytime you take a shower, since the glass door is not big enough... More

Just experienced the worst nights sleep my wife and I have had after 3 weeks of traveling in Spain and Italy. There is no air conditioning but you can't leave the windows open because it noisy and there are mosquitos. Was bitten all night. And they pump the heat into your room without even asking. No wonder you have to... More

I choose this hotel after several hours or reading and filtering through TA reviews. The hotel and staff did not disappoint. I booked a few months in advance, prepaid through the hotels website with some requests which were all followed through. Had a small, as expected, room on the top floor close to the roof top terrace. The only drawback... More

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.
