Terrific location between Rialto and St Marks Square, this hotel is comfortable, but has no elevator. The entrance is through the restaurant just off the main road. You walk up about 20 steps just to get to the lobby! We requested and received a "canal view" room. We were on the 4th floor and our canal view was of a... More

Stayed here in peak season, the hotel was easy to find, service was great, we seemed to be close to everything. Clean rooms, great breakfast, friendly service, good sized bedroom and bathroom. We had an amazing view of the canal and saint marks square from our room! I highly recommend Antica Locanda al gambero

After a cruise we decided to stay in San Marco for 3 extra days. We chose this hotel for its close proximity to the Rialto Bridge, Doges Palace and San Marco square. The hotel was very clean and the staff were very polite and helpful. The breakfasts were incredible with a variety of foods. The only negative was no elevator,... More

We just returned from a lovely trip to Italy. Our first stop in Venice was perfect with this hotel. It's midway between San Marco and the Rialto Bridge. The owners are very helpful. The room was ample in size for four people. The breakfast was wonderful. Lots of nice restaurants and gelataries in walking distance. We can't wait to return.

Its location is right in the heard of the city next to an atmospheric bridge and a canal. 5' from Rialto and San Marco. However, it had the most narrow room I ever stayed, and a totally unstable internet. It also had an uncomfortable smell which we never understood if it was something which existed permanently, if it was by... More

We have just had a three-night stay here. On the plus side, it is very well located, close to the Rialto, it is very clean and the staff are obliging. However, there are several negatives. Breakfast was poor. Cooked items featured hard scrambled egg, under-cooked sausages and greasy bacon. The coffee was lukewarm and tasted strongly of chicory. Not what... More

Great location - easy walk from Rialto or St. Mark's stop. Rooms are large and have a flavor of classic Venice. Quiet yet well located - excellent staff. The breakfast was great and plenty of it. No elevator so be prepared for stairs and maybe even some odd ups and downs. But, this is Venice and well worth it. Will... More

The best breakfast we had on our vacation. Very good location, about half way between Rialto bridge and St Marks, in the hear of attractions. Reasonably priced. Room was ok, nothing special, overlooking a canal, which made it noisy. At least we had a couple of windows to open. Only stayed one night and not sure I would want to... More

On arrival we were put in a top floor room. Beware there is no lift! My wife is elderly and could not cope with the stairs. But the staff are so helpful that they relocated us in a room next to reception. An ideal outcome. Very friendly staff.

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.
