This hotel was truly in Venetian style but felt slightly cramped and dated. The staff were really friendly and helpful but breakfast was a little disappointing, again in quite a small room with a lot of people. The location was fantastic though; very central, less than 5 minutes from Piazza San Marco. Overall I enjoyed it.

This little hotel is perfect for a couple of days visit to venice. Very friendly staff and very handy location. As with many places in Venice it is off a small alley with just a doorway so not an easy place to find. Only down side was no lift but the staff took our bags up to the room.

This hotel is well located a 5min walk to St Marco Square. The reception were very helpful with some issues we had with a cruise booking for the following day.

Location makes this small hotel. Our room was very small with barely room for our suitcases. The bath was antiquated. Despite what I just wrote, we had the best time here. The flowers outside our windows were in bloom; opening the window shutters was tricky because the room was basically filled by a large and comfortable bed. But with open... More

It is a well located place, easy to access everywhere in walking distance. However, it was not so tidy and comfortable. Rooms are a bit old and our bed was so noisy. Breakfast and service was average and staff were kind.

This lovely hotel is only about 300 meters from San Marco Square so easy to walk to from the water bus station. Our room was very small but still adequate, very clean and really antique decor. Staff were all most helpful and suggested activities and booked some for us. Breakfast was good and WiFi excellent. We loved this place. Downside... More

Friendly staff who always render their services with a smile. Best thing about this hotel is its location. Calle dei Fabbri is a main link between St Mark;s Place and the Grand or Main Canal, both at a pleasant walking distance. Rooms are not all the same size. Only a handful has balconies, for those who need one! The breakfast... 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.
