Perfectly located hotel, close to Rialto bridge. It is situated in very old hose. Do not expect wonderful views from the window. Also, it is quite difficult to find, look on the map and ask in cafes around, they will advice you where is located. We stayed several night, everything was great. We did not take a breakfast, so we... More

Finding somewhere affordable and central in Venice is not an easy task! Lanterna di Marco Polo offers both in a beautiful and historical building from the 15th century. Located a few minutes walk from either Rialto Bridge or San Marco, you couldn't ask for a better location! Hidden behind an unassuming door, the hotel rooms are up a rather narrow... More

We took a private taxi fro the airport to Piazzale Roma and we transferred from there to the Rialto stop. We used Lowcosttaxis for this and while it cost €120 it took a lot of the hassle out of our journey. We used a porter to take us to the hotel which was just as well. While it was only... More

My mom and I stay in this beautiful small hotel in Venice. The location is everything, close to Rialto and San Marcos. The rooms are quite small with a Venetian decor but with everything you need. Don't expect a Marriot, this is an old building surrounded by even more old buildings. The best thing about Lanterna di Marco polo is... More

This hotel is good value for Venice. The rooms have an old worldly charm to them. They are not super large but for Venice they are ok. The wifi has good reception, there is a fridge but take your own kettle and cups if you like a cup of tea in the morning. The bathroom is clean and not too... More

Table light bulb went just after we arrived I mention to Ricardo on our way out to explore when we got back bulb was replaced. Asked if could borrow a kettle no problem instantly received... More

It was a last minute booking and we have chosen this hotel because of its location (which is perfect for tourists - right at the Rialdo bridge, less then 10 min walking to San Marco). Our room was tiny and dark, and at the second evening we have found an awful smell in the room and could do nothing as... More

I have stayed here twice now. It is a bit dreary and old but one of the most affordable places in the heart of Venice. Near the Rialto and an easy walk to St. Mark's square it is very convenient. Desk staff is nice. A/C helps cool the dark rooms. Can be hard getting luggage up several flights of stairs.... More

This was my second stay in this little Venice hidden secret place and ever as pleasant as the first one. This small hotel is just steps away from the Rialto bridge which you can reach with the direct boat-line from the airport (or the station). OK there is no lift, so depending how fit you are you simply need to... 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.
