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.

Location of hotel very good, right on a canal. Very short walk to San Marco Square. Little disappointed with breakfast as toast not included. Was disappointed with our room, small and very plain for the price we paid.
Overall we enjoyed our stay here.
Great 3 day extension to our Viking Cruise. Great location on small canal. Breakfast was a plus. Short walk to the water taxi on our departure day. The desk clerk actually walked me to the pickup spot the day before so I knew where we...More
