My wife and I enjoyed 5 days here in March 2014. It is a convent cum primary school just 5 mins from Piazza San Marco. The facilities are basic, single beds quite hard, small but comprehensive ensuite bathroom and basic kitchen facilities downstairs. However it is spotlessly clean, there is a PC in the kitchen which is very handy. The... More

My mother in law and I stayed here for 2 nights we each had different rooms. I had room 10 at the very end of the hall and it was a fairly large room, my mother in law was in room 12 on a different floor with a very small room. Both rooms came with air conditioning which was great,... More

We just stayed here (early September), and it was absolutely wonderful, like a perfect, peaceful oasis! Amazing, for the price!! Lodging in Venice is expensive, but the Istituto is a much better price than most, and a great value!!! WARNING: Google maps does NOT accurately show the location, so do not use Google to find it!! LOCATION: Wonderful, at the... More

This place is located at the perfect spot in Venice! It literally only takes 2½ minutes to walk to San Marco - and yet the Istitututo San Giuseppe is located in a very quiet place. The location is absolutely perfect. And besides that, it is really interesting to try a different kind of "hotel" than the ones you'd normally stay... More

Stayed there three nites in July 2013. The room was great no air condition but clean and had a private shower and toilet. The nuns were very nice. One was from the Philippines and spoke great English. There is also a Coop nearby where you can buy food, water, etc... if you do not want to spend your hard earned... More

My daughter and I stayed here in May 2012 for 2 nights and loved the location. Like others before me have said, the rooms are basic but clean. Our had a view of rooftops from the bedroom and from the bathroom window we could see the top of St. Mark's Basilica. The price was really great for the location though... More

This convent was an old Palazzo. The room itself was basic but clean. We had 3 twin beds which was kind of odd for a couple! But it really is an excellent value considering the location. It is kind of hard to find actually. We took the Alilaguna water bus from Marco Polo (€16pp) then we got off the Rialto... More

My family of six stayed at the Istituto San Giuseppe for three days for New Years Eve. I booked the rooms through Monastery Stays. The website for Monastery Stays is easy to navigate and reserve rooms (we also stayed in a convent in Florence). The location of the Istituto could not be better as it is only a 5 minute... More

I feel very neutral about this place. I think I would give it more stars if I knew Italian. It is not too difficult to find, but my husband said the Google Map had it in the wrong place. I couldn't make heads or tails of the Venice streets to begin with, so I have to take his word for... More
