When booking, we chose this hotel because of it's location and because it is a 4-stars hotel. Location is awesome. Good things about this hotel stop there. This is clearly not a 4-stars hotel. I slept in better 1-star hotel. No staff at this hotel. You must check-in and checkout at another. The room is noisy, we can hear all... More

This is the annex to the main hotel, which you have likely already learned by now. It's down a little alleyway about 5 minutes from the main hotel, and it is a 10 or so minute walk from St. Mark's Square. Great location. It has a nice modern elevator and a nice staircase too. The room I had was little... More

Tide clean hotel with free wifi. You have to go down the steet to another hotel for breakfast but the food is great and with a good selection... More

First the good news: the location was brilliant - between S. Marco and Rialto, and so close to the latter that it was easy to take our cases to and from water transport and hotel. We were provided with excellent recommendations for restaurants for dinner - the Bistrot de Venise close by and Diavolo e Acquasanta on the other side... More

Locando la scala is located in a narrow street sideways of Frabri. From the outside you think "what did I book now"? The inside is small but confortable. We were in a room on the forth floor.. There is an elevator. Bathroom is small and only one adult fits in. The bed was very good and the sheets are changed... More

We are experienced travelers - currently on a round the world trip. 3. I have very high expectations. Why we booked this hotel: 1. Booking 2-3 days in advance. 2. Venice was... More

The location of this hotel is perfect being a very short walk to either San Marco Square or Rialto Bridge. This hotel (if you can call it that) is just a block of rooms with no lobby. In fact not knowing that it doesn't have any person at the door, we stood outside the sign and banged the door down... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon ... We found it extremely hard to find and in the heat and with suitcases very frustrating. Didn't know we had to check in at other hotel. The porter was then helpful with the cases. The room when we got there was very small but we expected that in Europe esp... 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.
