Fantastic little hotel in a great area.We got the boat service to the Rialto stop and the hotel was a short walk away. The room we had was very nice, the bed was comfy and everything was clean.

The hotel is nicely located and the staff is extremely educate and serviceable. The breakfast is very well done in a nice room. Internet is very well. Is silent and the bed is wonderful. Everything is close and the river is just down the window. We will come back there.

The rooms are small (I had a single; maybe double is roomier) but very functional with tasteful Venetian decor with old fashioned flair!

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

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.

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.
