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

We were very pleased with Lanterna di Marco Polo. Guido and Ricardo went out of their way to meet our needs and were always ready with a smile to answer any questions. We knew ahead of time to ask for a first floor room (which in Europe is what Americans call the second floor). The hotel was very clean and... More

Nice room. Once we found it, it was good location but finding it through the maze known as Venice was not easy. It's poorly marked and even though we used multiple maps plus GPS, we really struggled to find it. Not crazy about having to lug 3 huge keys around. One for the door, one for the front door and...

Venice is spectacular and magical. Lanterna di Marco Polo has as it's hosts Guido and Riccardo, two friends who make this place hum. It was easy to find after getting off the Vaporetto a short wal to San Marco and generally centrally located to walk to anywhere you want to. My husband and I are used to old buildings in... More

We visited Venice over the Easter weekend and this hotel was perfect for us. When we booked we received an email from the owner explaining how to get there and asking if there was anything they could do for us which was very reassuring and a lovely touch. We stayed on the fourth floor which wasn't a problem for us.... More

Booked through Expedia and received an immediate response from the hotel. Nice touch. Was able to communicate via email prior to the trip. Again very helpful. The room was comfortable, but small. Bathroom, even smaller. The staff was very helpful and we enjoyed the location and proximity to shops and the Grand Canal.

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.
