Even though this hotel is nicely located not far from St Marks Square we were disappointed with our reception- the young male receptionist was really too busy with his computer to either welcome a new guest or check us in properly. This attitude prevailed for...More
We loved the pleasant and helpful staff. Great breakfast. Hotel very clean and the character of the rooms what you would hope for in Venice, chandelier lighting etc. The location was perfect, right in the hustle & bustle of a small piazza and right next...More

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

We booked a really cheap room on the 2nd floor (the triple room) and right outside of our room was a small, standing room only terrace with doors, a table and chair set (set just inside the doors/terrace). We drank prosecco and watched the gondolas from the terrace often!
