The question is, "How much are you prepared to pay to experience gondolas passing by under your window every evening?" It is very special. However, having paid more for this B&B hotel than any other hotel in our travels round the world, I also thought our room would be special. It really wasn't. The room desperately needed redecorating, the old... More

The location of the hotel is good and the interior is old but gives a feeling of a lost time. But that's all good about it. The staff at the reception was a kind of arrogant and unfriendly. It seemed They didn't want to help you. The rooms were very noisy and the aircondition was old and not that great.... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time at this hotel. We took the vaporetto (water bus) from the airport and got dropped off 2 minutes from the hotel. If you know Venice, you understand how incredibly valuable it is to have a hotel close to a water bus station. The area is so wonderful, close to major attractions and... More

This hotel is ideally located in the heart of Venice. It is close to San Marco piazza - 10-15 mins walk and close to Rialto 10-15 mins walk. The vaporetto (no. 1) stop Giglio is 2 mins away from the hotel, down an alley, There is a Traggetto stop very close too which will take you to Dosodorno (opposite). The... More

Lovely hotel in a great location. Three minutes walk from the vaporetto stop - five mins walk from St Marks Square along a designer shopping street, 5 minutes from the opera. Spotlessly clean rooms with a kettle, great breakfast ... what more could you want,

Cracking little hotel right in the middle of Venice. It's a very busy area but it is surprisingly quiet and peaceful. Literally loads and loads of restaurants and cafes in the area to choose from. Within easy walking distance from all the attractions and water taxis. Gondolas sail by right alongside the hotel. Can't really say anything else that hasn't... 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.
