I escaped the oppression of a "5-star" hotel on the Grand Canal and landed in a lovely, cozy room atop this beautiful, unique & classic building. My room overlooked Campo San Stefano and the near-by bell towers. I kept "time" by the ringing of the bells ~ although Venice was to me a place that was outside time and a... More

The hotel was nicely decorated. It was clean. However, it is run by a man who spoke broken English. Also, in order to save money, air con was not on and light in the lobby was not on most of the time. Hence, you feel you are going into a ghost house every time you walk through the lobby.

Hotel Santo Stefano is an inviting little hotel in the heart of bustling Venice. It never ceases to amaze me how such ancient buildings can be fashioned into such elegant and comfortable hotels. Marcello and his staff were very gracious and accommodating of our very late arrival into Venice, due to a very delayed flight from Barcelona. The hotel is... More

I spent two nights at the Hotel Santo Stefano. The hotel per se is small but cute and clean, it is located on a very beautiful piazza (Campo) and is located strategically near the Accademia delle Belle Arti, with good transport links (direct Vaporetto line to and from the station/Piazzale Roma). Customer service lacks a bit: we arrived to find... More

Clean and acceptable hotel. Tricky entrance with no clear signage so keep an eye on the numbers. A bit over priced for its condition. 3 stations from the main strain station called Santa Lucia.

Lodging in Venice is always a complicated and expensive affair. Hotel Santo Stefano is tiny, with tiny rooms and tiny bathrooms. However, it delivers. First, it is inexpensive (for Venice standards). Second, regardless of size, the squeaky clean rooms and bathrooms have everything you may need, including mini fridge, bathrobe, massage shower. The decor is vaguely venetian kitsch, but you...

I booked a room at Santo Stefano for 5 days in July 2013, via Booking.com, and due to a reservation mistake (which lasted 56 minutes) I had to change the dates. Booking.com tried to contact the hotel in the afternoon of the same day. No one from the hotel responded until the next day. They then charged me a full... More

Hotel Santo Stefano is a lovely, quaint hotel. The interior of the rooms is something else! Wall to wall decor of Red and gold with Bed covers to match. I gather this is Venetian in style. It gave the room this very cosy feel. The room was rather small for a double room and the shower cubicle was not designed... More

What an amazing hotel in perfect location. Not for your minimalist decor visitors, elegant and sumptious. Have just returned after the worst flooding since 66, unfortunately the hotel did suffer, but owner was so helpful. I agree that the room was small, as was the shower, but who needs space with the decor and the steam shower!

Though my sister and I did not stay long, we were completely satisfied. The rooms are small and, yes, the shower is even smaller, but that should not be surprising. The room was very clean and the bathroom updated. The location is within walking distance of most major tourist sites and the area is much less busy than many areas.... 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.

“I liked the rooms on the side of the Campo - as high as possible. It doesn't matter if your bath is across the hall, it is private.”

“You may choose a window looking on Campo San Stefano for the atmosphere quotient. It is a beautiful and lively square. Be aware, though, that the campo is very noisy at night, so if you are a finicky sleeper you might want to refrain.”
