We spent a week at this hotel the last week of January and had a good time. It was the week before Carnivale started so prices were not totally jacked up yet and though crowded the crazy masses had not yet arrived. The rain and morning floods of the Piazza San Marco and surrounding areas made it an interesting and... More

Stayed here for a mini break with friends, close to St Mark's square, shops, bars & boats for trips out. Rooms are in Venetian style, clean & good value for money, we had canal views which was a plus, though did not spend lots of time in hotel as wanted to see sights of Venice. The breakfast was mainly continental... More

Hotel has great location, great breakfast, and decent rooms. What else do you need in Venice? You are not going to sit in your room. You need to be close to main attractions, not to worry about breakfast, be able to walk to main museums and cathedrals. And this is what you get there. We loved it and price we... More

We were four couples visiting Venice and booked the Royal San Marco hotel.we booked in November for a visit in Feb15. Following our booking I started seeing a number of negative statements on the hotel and got quite worried but it turned out that not only the hotel is situated in an excellent a few steps from San Marco, but...

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.
