Stayed 3 nights at this location. The hotel is not the easiest to find, but then again everything in Venice is like a maze. When you get off the public transport ferry, the easiest way is to find your way to the middle St Marks Square. When you walk out of the ferry exit gate turn right and you will... More

From S Lucia exit, take water bus 2 then exit at San Marco which will cost you €7 and valid for 70minutes for water train usage. Finding this hotel was painful for us. And FYI thats already with google maps! We keep on circling at the corner as google keeps on showing us where just near the hotel... Thats BECAUSE... More

This rather tired and dated hotel won't win any awards for glamour, decor or dining. However it's location is first rate being short steps from Pizza San Marco making up for its failures. Staff were helpful and efficient; room was acceptable, breakfast was underwhelming but edible. Did I say the location is its best asset.

Stayed here two nights over the new year. Location is really close to St Marks Square which is obviously a positive but can also be a negative. Very busy but also easy to find from the canal. We found the staff to be quite friendly and helpful. However, I guess we were unlucky as for our stay, the wi fi... More

This is by far the worst hotel I have ever been to. The personnel does not offer any service, we got a room in the "annex building", with a small, dark and old room. The bar in front of the hotel was so loud that there was no way to actually sleep. The only plus is the good situation of... More

Even we give he a greeting on next day morning, he just ignore us, no politeness at all. Others staff is good & smiling, exspeacially staff in restaurant, like them... More

We stayed here during a trip to Venice for our anniversary. This hotel is literally yards from San Marco square and close to the Basilica, Doges Palace, water taxis and gondolas. The hotel is basic, the rooms are small but you will not be in the room for long; after all you are in Venice. Rooms come with a TV,... More

Excellent location just near San Marco square and is in a walking distance to main attraction points and most importantly to AllaLaguna boat stop. We have stayed as three people, and our room was really specious and comfortable. The bathroom was clean, renewed, and in good size. The hotel is not very luxorius but worth your money. The breakfast was... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood 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.
