We stayed at the Junior suite and on Sat the rate was Euro 973 and rest of the rest of the week we were paying Euro 731. With that price the room and service was like a 3 stars hotel. The room 216 have no view only over looking at the roof top of the neighbours. The lobby of the... More

We recently visited the Palazzina G, which is a boutique style hotel with a great deal of style and panache! The hotel was designed by Phiipe Starke and is a minute; well seconds from the grand canal. With only 16 or so rooms and some apartments, it is never overcrowded and the restaurant and bar offer a superb, welcoming, intimate... More

Lovely small hotel where the staff cannot do enough to make your stay perfect. Everyone was kind, friendly and very attentive. Tastefully decorated hotel. Light and airy bedrooms with large mirrors. Lovely roof terrace for relaxing and watching the world go by. Conveniently located.

Stayed here for two nights mid April. Very easy to navigate to from the airport. Was slightly concerned by the very brief directions provided on their website but actually we found our way straight there, despite there also being absolutely no signage to identify itself! Staff were very welcoming and the complimentary drink whilst we were checked in from the... More

It is definitely one of the best places to stay during a nice, cosy (and by the way: romantic) weekend in Venice. Situated in the not overcrowded neighborhood around Palazzo Grassi (also worth to see!) you can find a harbourage designed by the grand master, the godfather Philippe Starck. "... and make every guest feel like 'temporarily Venetian. " ->... More

I picked this because it was a boutique hotel with great design. It's a quiet location which suits but easy to walk about. The hotel is funky. Our bedroom though not cheap was quite small but well done. No bath unfortunately which always adds a bit more decadence. Friendly and very helpful staff.

That unassuming little door in a narrow side street behind the Palazzo Grassi (Palazzina G is it's little sister I guess) leads you through to a paradise of varied designs that have a slightly naughty feel to it. The staff are friendly and attentive without being intrusive, the beds are huge and comfortable but this is much more than just... More

Elegant Philippe Starck breath-of-fresh air for Venice by Emanuele Garosci. A light-appropriate cross between the Delano and a Mama Shelter (rooms similarly small, large lovely bathrooms, few baths, delightful designs). Thoughtful and exquisite chef specializes in whimsical touches. Lounge-bar-welcome-front-desk replacement-chill zone one of the most romantic anywhere. If you can't stay, just enjoy a drink, far from the madding crowd.... More

This hotel is off the beaten path but offers a fantastic, convenient location that makes you feel somewhat like a local. It's hidden down an alley but walkable to just about everything and you are tucked away from the tourists. I love a Phillipe Stark designed hotel and wanted something more modern/trendy. The staff was particularly exceptional and welcoming, everyone... More

This is a beautifully designed hotel in a central but quiet location. We stayed in a junior suite which was very light and a good size. The ambiance was helped by the fab mirrors on each wall! The main event at the hotel is the wonderful bar and restaurant. Fabulous furniture and music made it a very seductive place to... 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.
