Shot distance walk to the Rialto bridge and st.marcs square. Hidden down a small pathway it's easy to find once you gather your bearings in venice. Close to all shops and restaurants. 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

Venice is a very unique place and experience. It is a place like no other. Full of art and culture, Venice is a must go place that should be in every bucket list. September and October are great time as it is not hot nor too cold.Just pleasant weather. We were pleasantly surprise went we arrived at our room. After... More

I feel compelled to review this hotel based on the many negative comments on TA. About me: 1. I am an Aussie, 28yo and hubby is 30. 2. 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

Great location but that 's it. It is neither a guesthouse nor a hotel. It is a damp smelling ,depressing building with rooms, no charm or reception. The man at the desk down the street who greeted us and made the first impression had filthy finger nails, a shirt with grubby cuffs and the hem hanging down . He insisted... More

Rather good localization, 5 mins from San Marco Piazza. Great place to live, good caffes and restaurants here. The hotel is clean and the room was large enough. No room service so you cant order any drinks or food but it is not a big problem. Would recommend to stay.

Stayed here for 3 nights in early May. First time in Venice and this place was perfect. Can't beat the location - half-way between Rialto Bridge and San Marco Square - each about 5-minute walk. We booked a "suite" - which meant a separate area with a couch, in addition to the area with the bed. The extra space was... 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.
