We hit Venice during the worst of the flooding to find Venice closed. The hotel assured us they would be open and ready to receive us as soon as Venice reopened and true to their word they were. We got one of the first water buses out once waters started to recede and found most of San Marco Sq under several feet of water still. There were however raised walkways to get across. The hotel is down a small alley way on the opposite side of the square from San Marco water bus stops. There is a tiled marker on the floor to indicate the location. We loved the room with matching wallpaper, furniture and bedding. It was warm, dry and clean and we thought a good size with en-suite. We were amazed everything was working, including the lift, when we got there, although the floors in reception were a little damp. There are a multitude of restaurants, shops etc on the doorstep, of course the usual tourist spots; easy access to several water bus stops and we found the staff were very friendly and helpful. We couldn’t really find fault, especially for the cost and under the circumstances. We were amazed at how quickly everything was mopped out and up and running. As we had a cruise ship to catch we were up and out in the morning very early and quickly before the tide came in again, but did manage coffee and several different parties for breakfast before we left. All was very fresh but we didn’t really spend long enough to comment on the selection.…
Very low level of service. Uneducated staff. Poor breakfast. They do not have bed linens. The covers are without envelope. Just woolen soldier blankets. Unacceptable for a three-star hotel in central Venice in San Marco Square. We paid 240 euros for two nights, it felt like we were staying in a hostel. Old furniture, broken locks and torn sheets. I'm sorry I can't put the photos here in my review. I shot everything and sent it to Booking com. Dear Albergo san marco you need a major change to your entire inventory.
We have just returned from 3 nights at this hotel. Our first impressions were good, the desk staff were ok....not the friendliest people but they got us checked in. Our room was incredibly small, I mean no more than a box room with a bathroom attached. If you take anymore than hand luggage then you will have a problem....we had to put our small suitcases under the bed as there was no room for them. Location wise it is great, literally steps from St Mark's and overlooking a small basin. Unfortunately this is where the positives stop. The noise in this hotel is phenomenal....its always noisy and loud. Guests slam their doors from 6am and as it's an old building, that noise travels through every floor. We made a complaint to reception at 6.30am as a group of American tourists thought it was totally normal to shout, slam doors and have loud conversations in the corridor at 6am......nothing was done by reception staff. It is also quite incredible that the hotel thinks it's totally normal for the cleaners to start their work at 8am....slamming doors, vacuuming rooms, talking loudly....then they leave all their mess in the corridors for the best part of the day. The picture below was taken at 2.30pm. Our bed was also very hard, the pillows were cardboard thin and it was not a comfortable sleep. Also as the basin outside is where the gondoliers park their gondolas for the night, they start working at 7.30am, shouting and cleaning their boats. You will not get a good night's sleep here unless you are deaf or where very good earplugs. Oh yes, the Hard Rock Cafe is 20 metres away and some nights play music till 2am! Now for the breakfast....if you can call it that. It's free for a reason! Most days we could not get a table, if we did there was no cutlery available and if we did finally get a table and cutlery then they had run out of plates! It was a complete shambolic lesson in how not to run a hotel. The food is tasteless, cold and of the lowest possible quality. Eggs are presented as a pancake, bacon is unusual to say the least and the orange juice is like a strong, syrupy cordial. We decided one visit out of three was enough....we went elsewhere and paid. All in all this hotel is not 4 star....its more 2.5 star and that is being generous. Dont be fooled by the quaint pictures on the website, it is in need of a total redesign internally. The lifts are from the 1940s and everything else appears to be as well. We have stated at a few hotels in Venice, from 2 star to 5 star. With 2 star you understand it will be basic and functional. With 5 star you know it will be luxurious and everything will be available for you. Here it is just above basic. We paid £150 per night for this hotel....its more like it's worth £90 and that is only because of its location. If your budget can stretch a bit further then look elsewhere. Would we go again.....No. Would we recommend....No. Can you get better fir a bit more money....Yes you can.…
I am here right now. We have been in Italy for 3 weeks in Rome, Cinque Terre, and Florence. Venice is our last stop. WE HAVE HAD WONDERFUL SERVICE AT EVERY OTHER HOTEL WITH AWESOME AND HELPFUL FRONT DESK STAFF AT 5 HOTELS EXCEPT THIS ONE!!! The lady at the front desk is absolutely horrible, she is very unfriendly and unhelpful. She has brownish wavy long hair. She was horrible before we even spoke to her to other people, I believe she is a supervisor or manager by the way she was speaking to other employees. Our room is 111 on the first floor with a view of a small alley and shops, it is so noisy!! Besides the noise of the alley below, every time someone takes a step or opens the window or closes the door the windows rattle very loudly. I am very sick and went down to ask where the closest pharmacy is and if we could have a quieter room so I could sleep. She didn’t even check, and said no way, and that if I wanted a quiet room I needed to request it when I reserved months ago! I had no idea I was going to get sick and need to sleep, normally I don’t care and I am not picky, then she said we have one of the best rooms???? If we have one of the best rooms I would absolutely hate to see the others!! It’s falling apart and it’s dirty. THE ONLY good thing about this hotel is the location, although there are many others within the same area. It’s right off of Saint Marks square. Just stay somewhere else, don’t waste your time or money in Venice by staying at this dump and having to deal with such unfriendly staff! If I could give zero stars I would. Worst experience in Italy out of any of my visits or any hotel I have stayed at. …
We had booked a room at this hotel, yet when we arrived there we were informed that we had actually booked at another hotel, the Ambassador which was a few steps away. That hotel was disappointing, the carpet was threadbare, had a musty smell, the bath had a weird glass contraption to turn into a shower.
