The hotel has an excellent location with a short walk to all major tourist attractions, just minutes from Basilica San Marco and the Doge's Palace. Despite this it's very quiet and feels far much more remote with a lovely location over looking a beautiful canal (lovely views) Our room was very clean and authentically decorated, was worried this would be...

The water taxi took us right to the door where Enrico was waiting for our arrival. We arrived hours before check in time but Enrico was very accommodating and allowed us to leave our luggage until our room was ready. He is so friendly and speaks perfect English. He also was a great source of information and made sure that... More

The hotel & our stay was perfection. The staff were friendly & spoke excellent English (great as my Italian is poor) The location of the hotel was very close to Saint Marks Square (the main area of Venice) approx. 50 seconds walk. Our balcony over looked the Bridge Of Sighs (room 1 or 150) & was very well kept. The... More

I experienced the worst hotel stay as far as remember. First, the staff was very rude and not helpful. They charge 80 euros per night additional for a child. The guy at the front desk, named Enrico, was very rude and did not willing to help. He promised me a bigger room with an additional bed for my child. I... More

We stayed here to celebrate our 20 year anniversary and found a marvelous little hotel with an extraordinary location if you want to be near the Plaza San Marcos. It is literally two short blocks away. It only has 13 rooms and very good service. It is not new but very well kept with big rooms and nice bathrooms. We... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel, room 354, great room and very large for not only European standards, but for Venice. It was a corner room so we had windows on two sides.

An overall good experience. Large rooms and a nice breakfast buffet, although the bread is on the dry side. Missed fresh bread. Friendly service at the reception. Would have been nice with some international tv channels.

Placed over a corner of St.Marco this hotel is a truly precious placement. When all unlucky 1 day tourist leave Venice opens its soul. It is a fantastic pleasure to have a walk alone through St.Marco filled with water to the knee! (They offer you special waterproof shoes - socks in the hotel for free)) Some hotel rooms have a...

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.
