This friendly, clean and well run B&B Hotel more than matched our expectations. The saying goes that location is everything and in the case of Lanterna di Marco Polo this is certainly true. It is about two minutes walk from the Grand Canal, Rialto bridge and about five minutes from St Marks Square. With only a few rooms, each named... More

Arriving on Sunday by train proved to be a little difficult to get to the hotel. Thanks to the bus drivers we finally arrived to a somewhat interesting receptionist. I guess due to the language she did not understand we were not planning to go to Venice that evening. The room was comfortable and modern and the breakfast good. They... More

Lanterna di Marco Polo is located in one of the most centralised area in Venice, although it took a bit of time to locate the hotel. I can get to most of the attractions within 10 minutes!!! The room is a little dark though. The breakfast spread is fantastic! Still a good hotel to be staying at!!

Lanterna Di Marco polo is located at the most perfect location you would ask for in Venice. It is just about 2-3 min walk from the famous Realto bridge and just a 8-10 minute walk from the most important sight, the St. Mark's square. Emphasis on "walk". So you don't need to worry about taking the water taxi or the... More

Lanterna di Marco Polo is a great B&B to stay at as it is central to St. Macro Square, Doges Place, Rialto Bridge and more as easy access to this B&B from the Rialto Vaporetto stop. Our stay was 4 nights from September 15 through to the 19th and I cannot say enough about this place and the owners. The... More

Good hotel everything we felt we needed while staying in Venice. You spend all your days out and about (and if you don't plan to then you're missing out and you'll need a hotel that offers more to do). It was 1 minute from st Marc's square the centre of Venice absolutely incredible location.

We were thoroughly impressed with this little, owner-managed hotel! Guido and Riccardo were very friendly and always willing to assist in any way. The hotel is perfectly located, close to a water taxi stop on the main canal, a very short walking distance from Rialto bridge, and in the direction of San Marco Square. When we visit Venice again, we... More

The hotel is very well located, near Rioalto Bridge and lots of shops around. The rooms where spacious and had everything including AC. The "dinning room" was really small but the included breakfast was ok. The staff war very helpful and friendly. The only thing that isn't good about the hotel is the view because in both sides all you... More

IT is not everywhere that you can combine modern comforts and very tasteful unpretentious decor with the feeling that you are in an historic place, where you can lie on a pleasant bed and stare at the centuries-old beams and wooden ceiling, look out of the window and see ordinary buildings much as they have probably always looked, hear the...

Had great difficulty finding somewhere to stay in central Venice for a weekend with a friend. Eventually got suggested this guesthouse near San Marco and the Rialto. Although not cheap, it was a very good find. It's small and central and the owners, Riccardo and Guido are so helpful and friendly. They took us in person to a supermarket and... More
