It's a nice hotel. Breakfast was good. The restaurant downstairs is very nice and is the best we've eaten in Venice! Don't get me wrong, I believe it's not from the same owner so the restaurant is apart from the hotel... The room was clean and nice in "Venice" style. To bad that you could here the sounds from in...

This is the third time I stayed at the Locanda Antica Venezia and I used to like it very much and recommend it to fellow travellers. Location is great, 2mn away from San Marco, rooms are decorated in the venitian style + TV and small refrigerator. The problem I found is that I decided to arrive one day earlier and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in September. Not sure why all the fuss about hard to find as every hotel that is not in the harbor is down some dodgy little pathway. Yes, the entrance is weird and you think..hum? am I going the right way? The location was excellent for the price I doubt I would have found... More

To begin with, the hotel was very difficult to find. We were hauling our baggage all around San Marco using google maps and we couldn't find it. We asked local law enforcement in that area where the "hotel" was located, and they told us that they had never heard of it. Shocking to say the least. We finally found it... More

Fifty nine steps to the reception area can be a big ask after a long day of travelling once you find the Antica down a narrow lane between the Apotheke and Tabac (Many thanks for those wonderful instructions from a fellow Trip Advisor which were invaluable). However, you could not ask for a warmer welcome and assistance from the hotel... More

The location of the hotel is perfect, just steps away from Piazza San Marco. The staff is very attentive and helpful. The rooms are good enough, decent rooms and affordable. The cons of the place are: finding the hotel, there is no clear directions or signs to know where it is and the fact that you have to climb 3... More

Hotel very well located, just steps from Piazza San Pedro and the Ferry Boat station. Staff extremely attentive and the hotel has a terrace and lounge on the top floor, which can be used freely by hospeder. The room was nice, but the bathroom though unique, was located in the hallway outside the room. This detail was not entirely clear... More

Had a quick stay here while we managed through Venice…..wouldn't be my first choice to stay again, but I've stayed in worse places. Pros - Location, location, location.

Located in a very good location few minutes from San Marco square on the top floors of the very authentic and rustic Venician buliding with real charm and character. Rooms comfortable, with aircon, good shower and quiet. Staff generally very helpfull (especially the 2 girls that work opposite shifts). The only let down was breakfast on our second morning: we...

Only good thing is that its in a great location. Rooms are dark and very out dated. Its on 3rd and 4th floor of building. Lots and lots of stairs to get to it. You will be out of breath! Breakfast is horrible. Hardly much served and not enough bread for everyone. Breakfast is literally served in a tiny corridor.... More

Good morning, we are aware of the problem that arose with the boiler. Regrettably, repair parts were not easily available and the technician wasn’t able to replace them immediately. Anyway, the breakdown has been repaired in less than 48 hours. Unfortunately, inconveniences can happen, even in a 5 stars hotel. However, you omitted to write that due to the damage,... 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.
