Fantastic location right next to St. Mark's square. Just a stride away from the main sights & two minutes walk from the water taxis. Friendly and helpfulstaff. Smallish room but clean & well presented with everything you need. Good price. Good breakfast & wi fi worked well. Nice lounge areas to sit and relax in. Excellent value for money.

Very nice hotel in great location. The room is small but well appointed and comfortable. The bed was very firm which was fine for me but some might not like it. Location is perfect. Breakfast was nice. Wifi worked well. Nice view of canal.

small rooms but comfortable and clean. The reason to use this hotel is it is on the centre of everything just 30 seconds from the square. Really was a good base for our trip and allowed us a good walking tour around the city

We have stayed at the Royal San Marco during the masks carnival of Venice for four nights. The location of the hotel is excellent, just two minutes from the center of the celebrations. The rooms are clean, the service is nice and the breakfast is good. We were a group of photographers arrived at Venice to take photos of the... More

I can't help but be put off by the terrible service at the front desk. Each of the front desk workers that I had encountered were some of the rudest in the hospitality profession. The hotel itself is clean, rooms are decent sized and comfortable enough. I'd say 3-3.5 stars. If you are in the suites you're in a separate... More

Great location for first timers! Hotel was clean and staff very useful and helpful. Next to plaza San Marco and close to other must see things. Great breakfast, would definitely recommend it. Flyers for theatre, free internet with great coverage.

Staff are extremely friendly, and location is about 50metres from Piazza San Marco. We found this great on the first two days of our 5 day stay as we were exploring the popular attractions in and around St Marks Square, but found ourselves constantly venturing out towards san polo and canereggio for more reasonable priced restaurants and to escape the...

Searched through the reviews of many hotels to choose from to celebrate being in a beautiful place on my birthday. Like others, I read the reviews, but believe that there are always going to be people unsatisfied. However, in this case, I understand why. The hotel markets itself as 4*: unfortunately, this all depends on which room you are given.... More

Nothing really royal or great about the Hotel. The room is terribly small. Location is great if you want to be near the San Marco Plaza. Breakfast is just something to fill up your stomach. There is no WIFI in the room. WIFI only available in the breakfast room.

We previously stayed at their adjoining property, the San Marco Palace. Between the two, the San Marco Palace is the better choice. While very affordable for Venice (I paid about $100/night), this is a fairly basic hotel for all its trappings of luxury. If you don't mind a no-frills experience, or need to stay on a budget, it's OK, but... More
