Visiting Venice to enjoy the city and visit the Architecture Biennale, my son and I could not have found a better place to stay, Housed in a beautiful old building in Dorsoduro, the hotel is on a quiet street between two piazzas -- Campo Santa Margerita and Campo San Barnaba. Both have numerous restaurants and Campo Santa Margarita hosts fruit... More

This was exception service and made our start to... More

Lovely stay in this guesthouse . I wasn't made to feel awkward even though I arrived nearly 3 hours later than expected . I was greeted at the door by Maria's mother and shown around. My ONLY improvement would be a bigger bed , but it is advertised as a single room therefore I expected a single. The coffee maker... More

Just back from a lovely visit to Venice and a stay of 4 nights at Santa Margherita Guesthouse which I would highly recommend for a clean, comfortable and reasonably priced place to stay in Venice. Just 5 minutes walk from a vaporetto stop on the Grand Canal in a friendly location with lots of local bars, restaurants and shops. Campo... More

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay here. It's nicely tucked away from all the noise and bustle of the tourist places. The staff was great, the room relatively large, and comfortable. We loved having a place to stay away from all the crowds. Although the guesthouse doesn't face any canals, it has a gorgeous little garden to eat... More

A really lovely Guesthouse in the heart of Venice located on a quiet side street close to Campo Santa Magherita. Maria and her mother were perfect hosts and did everything possible to ensure a warm welcome to their beautiful city. The room had everything one could need. The area is quiet and there is a lovely garden to relax in... More

My daughter and I were warmly welcomed by Maria and given excellent information regarding the sites, restaurants and transport in Venice. The location is great as you are in walking distance of the main sites. The guesthouse was clean and quiet. We both loved the small garden and the personal support that was offered. We will definitely stay here again... More

Loved this impeccably-clean guesthouse and its lovely breakfast garden. Excellent location away from the crowds but close to all the sights. Breakfast was disappointing--Coco Puffs was only cereal option and only one type of fruit served; I'd recommend bringing your own food.

We just got back from a wonderful trip to Italy that started with three nights in Venice at the Santa Margherita Guesthouse. The location was great as it was easy to find, by Venice standards, and was close to the Academia area and a short walk from Rialto Bridge. Our room was very nice with shuttered windows that allowed us... More

My experience in the Santa Margherita Guesthouse was a positive one and best summarised as convenient, comfortable and tranquil. The single bed room I occupied provided all the comfort I need: it was spacious, clean, had air conditioning, a fridge, TV and a safe. Wifi is also available throughout the Guesthouse. There is also a nice commune garden where you... More
