Neighborhood
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.

A nice hotel with direct access from the water taxi. Situated in a small square, 5 minutes walk from St Marks Square. Hotel is clean with traditional rooms, ours looking over the canal, nice added bonus. Nice breakfast, all fresh and plenty of choice. Would recommend..

Nice rooms and a great location. It's close to St. Marks but not so close as to be slammed with tons of people. Easy to get to via water taxi. Good breakfast. The hotel has a fun layout too and can be as twisty as walking thru Venice's streets.

Great place..! Very nice, clean and large rooms with a view to the canal or to a little plaza in front of the hotel. Excelent location just 50 yards from the vaporetto Giglio stop and a 5 minute walk to San Marcos Square. Very kind staff. Definitely would come back..!

How much is a water taxi from airport direct to the hotel? Thankyou!
The Alilaguna Orange Line runs from the airport across the lagoon and down the Grand Canal to the stop named "Santa Maria del Giglio" ( 1 before St Marks Square) which leaves you only 50 metres from front door of hotel and in September cost us 15 euro each. It is about a 45 min run and a wonderful introduction to Venice

"ask for a room over looking the small canal at the back"
"visit in February; not sure about height of summer with no air conditionning (and possibility of midges?)"
"If you want space book a deluxe superior room. "
"our room overlooked the canal...was perfect."
"ask for one with a veranda, north side rooms look out over a canal so are quieter"
