Small traditional hotel in the heart of Venice, steps away from the Rialto bridge and a short walking time to San Marco. The environment of the hotel and its small streets around is magical !!! The rooms are quite basic and you cannot define them as luxury hotel rooms, but in Venice its quite sufficient. Breakfast is adequate. the owners... More

This hidden treasure is perfect as a base to explore Venice. Just minutes from the main Rialto Bridge, Fish Markets and San Marco Square, you can walk to everywhere easily. The Water Bus drops you really close and everything you need is on hand. The continental breakfast is basic but adequate with plenty of bars and restaurants within meters. Our... More

We stayed at this hotel before going on a cruise. The rooms were basic and cramped. The breakfast was adequate. We were dissappointed that Venice was a long bus ride away. One positive side was that there was an excellent family run restaurant a short distance away which had good food at a reasonable price

Thank you for the staff for making it such a wonderful stay, very helpful with any questions we had. Location is right in the heart of all the action and the room and ensuite were clean and tidy. Little noise at night. Breakfast was also great. We will be returning

This little hotel made a big impression on our Italian vacation. After finding the hotel and settling in (lots of stairs) you will literally have Venice at your doorstep. The hotel is wonderfully located, being steps to the Rialto bridge and minutes to St. Mark's square. We felt the streets were easily navigated, had lots of shopping and eating options,... More

You cannot dream of a better location (steps away from the Rialto bridge, very near to San Marco square, with direct access from the airport with the Alilaguna orange line). The Lanterna di Marco Polo is a hidden gem very warmly run by its two new owners Guido and Riccardo. They will go out of their way to help you... More

Little hotel located between Rialto Bridge and Piazza San Marcos. Upon arrival was warmly welcome by the host. Hotel is small, but cute and very clean. Breakfast was ok. I definitely would stay here again.

In Venice, it is all about location. This small boutique hotel is located just 270 yards from St Mark’s Square and a 2-minute walk from the Rialto Bridge and the vaporettos on the Grand Canal. You want to stay here in central Venice so you can enjoy the city when the tourists from the big cruise ships leave late afternoon.... More

My wiffy & I chose this b&b for our easter break. We do not look for luxury during city breaks but location & the lanterna was perfect - very close to the rialto & vaporetto stop & 10 min walk to san marco. The hosts Guido & Riccardo are very helpful & go out of their way to accomodate you.... More
