We arrived late at night at the main building. Had to climb up one flight of stairs and dragged the luggages up ourselves (12 steps) - I would strongly suggest if traveling in two or more, leave one of your friend downstairs taking care of the luggages, just in case your booking happens to be at the annex building too....

Located centrally, 1 minute from Rialto Bridge, this place is a gem! Clean and tidy. Space is at a premium in Venice, so expect a cozy room. Staff are amazing, Ambra gave us lots of useful info and helpful tips, and bent over backwards to answer our questions. Would definitely recommend this place!

Looking for budget accomodation in Venice is not easy, staying here the best decision we made. Location is excellent! Room small but clean and cosy with lovely Venetian styling The 2 sisters running the hotel I can't speak highly enough of. Friendly and helpful to the last. Made our few days in Venice most enjoyable and I would highly recommend... More

No complaints here… location close to Rialto was ideal, staff friendly and enthusiastic. We stayed in the Annex, which is just a short distance from the main hotel. Were woken up both mornings by locals getting their merchandise stalls out of storage, but this wasn't a big issue and in fact compensated by the quality of the rooms and facilities... More

Ambra and Stephania make this hotel a wonderful place to stay. Yes the rooms are small and there are some stairs, but the service they provide is absolutely fantastic- and that deserves a 5 star rating. The girls are so entertaining and helpful, recommended places to eat and where to go at certain times. Their recommendations were definitely spot on-... More

I stayed with some friends in Hotel San Salvador for two nights. We arrived via the night train early in the morning and were able to store our bags at the hotel until our 1 o'clock check in time. The two sisters who run the hotel are fantastic! So friendly and knowledgeable about the city, and as soon as we... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on the first stop of our trip to Italy. The location is great, very close to the Rialto. Even after travelling overnight and losing our luggage on one of our flights, we did not have any difficulty finding the hotel. Staff were very welcoming and offered to keep our bags when they arrived so... More

My husband and I were in Venice for 2 whole days, but only stayed overnight. When we arrived, early on a Monday morning, Stephania at the front desk told us our room would be ready very shortly, and gave us a detailed map of the city and her personal recommendations. When we returned to the hotel a few hours later,... More

First of all, let me mention that Venice is an obscenely expensive city, where the people seem to live in a bubble where their concept of value for money (if any) is very different from the rest of the world. That being said, Hotel San Salvador is an absolute mirage in such a place. The location is FANTASTIC, and just... More

Got what we paid for - a clean room in a great location. It's basic and functional but we knew that when we booked. The bed was very comfortable. I also agree with the other reviews the receptionist is possibly the nicest and friendliest receptionist I've ever come across.
