We decided to book the Junior Suite with partial canal view. The Hotel is very near rialto bridge and other best restaurants in Venice. The service is really fantastic. Very good cappuccino every morning. We meet two Filipina staffs which we enjoyed chatting every morning. Thank you for your excellent service.

As reviewed by many others, the location of the hotel is less than 2 minutes from St Mark's Square, where you can visit Doge's Palace and St Mark's Basilica. This is a very basic hotel with quite dated decor. We stayed in room 251 if I remember right, and the room is quite frankly quite decent in size and bigger... More

Great location, less than 4 mins walk from st. Marc square. Ask for the rooms overlooking the canal. For Breakfast you have to go to another hotel which is not far at all. At the time of checking staff gave us free one way water taxi tickets for murano island. Highly recommend to others.

I chose the hotel as part of an Expedia flight/hotel package for my wife's birthday. It's on the small canal that runs from the Canale Grande under the Bridge of sighs - which is two bridges away from the hotel.

Located just behind San Marco Square and by the canal going under the Bridge Of Sighs, it allows quick access to all main attractions of Venice. Hotel lobby can be accessed by foot or by water taxi.

loved it from the minute we walked in and were warmly greeted by Andrea. Location couldn't be better, our rooms 354 (triple) and 355(double) were huge by european standards, with comfortable beds and good bathrooms.

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.
