We enjoyed staying at this property. The design throughout is interesting, quirky and eye catching with mirrors, glass, art of different kinds, leathers, woods, metals and photography. There are a lot of photo opportunities and large doors that open up onto the Grand Canal where you can step out and view. We arranged for the full transfer service the hotel... More

Not a 5 star hotel by no means. Palazzina G "baits and switches." They advertise with pictures that do not respect the room category. They use the best room category features from various rooms which is misrepresentation. When you check in, the room is not as advertised. The mattresses are of extremely poor quality and not comfortable. Mosquitos buzz in... More

Just an easy stroll away from the hustle and bustle of central Venice. A quiet haven from the heat and tourists. Great breakfasts particularly up on the terrace - or for afternoon drinks. The rooms may be a bit trendy but are very nice, particularly if you like mirrors. The young staff were very helpful. We had a lovely stay... More

I had the grand canal one bedroom and it was superb. Hotel is beautiful, in a great location; short walk to everything, nearby St. Stephan square with its non-touristy boutiques and restaurants and right on the vaparetto stop but away from the overwhelming crowds. Service is very responsive and the free mini bar is well stocked and a nice surprise.... More

The new Aman was fully booked so a Philippe Starck place was a good option for 2 nights . The location is very nice with easy access and the best away from the crowds. Concept of the Hotel is great but it is a shame management does a poor job. Our lovely room that scream luxury modern Venice , magic... More

This is a great hotel, very stylish and just tucked away from the immediate hustle and bustle. We arrived by water taxi to be met by a member of staff to carry the bags the short walk to the entrance. We were then invited for a welcome drink while the formalities were taken care off. We were delighted to be... More

The Palazzina G was a terrific little hotel slightly off the busiest tourist paths. On the plus side, the location is convenient to everything, either by foot or vaporetto. It's also quiet. The hotel's staff is wonderful, from the well-informed and just plain lovely staff at the door to the restaurant staff (both morning and nighttime), and the housekeepers. And... More

We fell in love with this place. We arrived by water limo, to have our bags collected & escorted a short distance to the hotel. As soon as we walked through the door, this place is cool.. I can see why they have a JD suite. If you decide to visit come during Carnival & discover why we all get... 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.
