If you avoid November and February when Venice floods and the hotel lobby and diner smell like poo, it's a great hotel at the best location! 4 steps and you are at the heart of San Marco! Bathroom is weird but the rest of the room is very classy and very clean! Breakfast is poor but the staff is very... More

Hot and Cold water-even in the bidet! You would think you are in U.S., except for 1)bidet and stone intarsia bath instead of tile, 2) more formally-dressed and attentive staff, and 3) irregular room size, shapes, and 3) towel warmer in bath! CLEAN and great value. Research your own eateries but staff has good info on everything else!

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights over New Year and although the location cannot be beaten, you live with constant noise at all hours of the day and night. Throughout the duration of our stay, the hotel had no hot water, which proved extremely frustrating bearing the fact it is the middle of winter! The staff are useless... More

There are two best westerns Albergo San Marco. They don't specify which one exactly when you search to book. Both are located around at Marks square. The one we stayed in was really run down with mould on the ceilings. Please double check before booking.

Stayed here while discovering Venice for the first time. The location is amazing, right next to San Marco, walking distance from almost everything. The hotel itself is quite decent. You only get one key per room that you have to leave at the Front Desk when you leave so if your arrival times are different with whomever you are sharing... More

Foot steps from St Marco square, nice and quiet for a good nights sleep. Hotel staff are friendly, rooms are small as you would expect for Venice. Free wifi, breakfast was not the best but there are lots of cafes near by.

I am so glad we picked this hotel, just because of how conveniently it is located in San Marco. Good variety at breakfast and very friendly, helpful staff. We got all the directions and travel advice we needed. Room was standard sized. A bit noisy outside, but the beds were comfy enough to ensure a good night's sleep.

We went for a couple of days on our mini trip round Italy. I was reading the reviews as we were on the train to Venice and feared the worse. Location wise it is in the thick of it which is great with a high chance of music going on late into the night. Being right off of St Marcos... More

Hotel is at an excellent location, in the heart of Venice, a very short walk just over a bridge to St.Marks square. The rooms though small were clean and had views of canals. The Breakfast room was busy and had a good continental breakfast included in the room price. The lanes around the hotel had a good selection of restaurants... More

Great location right behind Piazza San Marco is probably the only positive thing I can say about this establishment. It is old and tired, breakfast pretty poor in cramped conditions and staff unhelpful in the dining area. Not worth the money, tiny rooms badly in need of a refurb. Not very friendly staff. WIFI connection almost useless. Would not go... More
