Stayed at Istituto June 2014. We were able to get a quad. The rooms are basic and very clean. The beds are single with firm comfortable mattresses. There is no tv available. WIFI is almost non existent. The nuns do not speak English but they have a clerical assistant who speaks English and is very helpful. The location is conveniently... More

Perfect location, very central. Close to Rialto and San Marco. Room basic but very clean. Bathroom good size and again very clean. Breakfast room for the use of guest were very basic. Sometimes a bit noisy because of school children, but no great problem. Great value for this central and historical accomodation. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed here during the summer of 2013 and loved it. It's exactly what our family (of 4) needed during our visit to Venice. Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds (singles), plenty of room and QUITE air conditioning. Plus its near St Marks AND is in a 600 year old school. Leaving every morning through the group of pre-school kids playing in... More

Smack bang between the Rialto and st marks square, this couldn't have been better placed. Don't know that I could find better value for the location. Immaculately clean and tidy. The sisters were very welcoming and staff very helpful. Perfect place if you don't mind the curfew.

Great find for family of four including a toddler. Fantastic atmosphere and kind kid loving nuns. But ripped off by Monastery Stays - they charged well over 100 euro for on around a 500€ bill for using their booking service. Book direct with the Convent, of course they speak english or just use Google Translate!

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

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!!

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
