We stayed at Hotel Giglio a few weeks ago, and we were very impressed. It's a 40 minute vaporetto ride from the train station, which is a great way to tour the Grand Canal, especially when you just arrive in Venice. A short walk from the stop, down a narrow alley and it's right there across the small plaza. The... More

My husband and I stayed here in June 2016. The room was clean, but Spartan. The elevator is very small. The staff was phenomenal. They were very helpful in finding an ATM w/a good exchange rate. The breakfast every morning was a very good way to start the day. They made the best de-caf coffee for me every morning. The... More

Very close to station and easy to find: cross the road, keep straight and second road on the right. 10 mins. Had a twin. Very well priced. TV did not work (didn't need it, and was surprised to see it), the shower room was in dire need of renovation. No hot water. Close to many restaurants. Beds so bouncy I... More

Standard hotel for price. Good location. First Class Customer Service. Best coffee in Europe so far. Marco manager more than helpful and knowledgeable, for where to go, what to do and where to eat ( we did what he suggested Brilliant)

Rooms were pleasant and clean, with very friendly staff. Great location, within easy walking distance from the main attractions. There was also a great selection of breakfast items, and they were very accommodating to my gluten free diet.

Love this quaint little hotel. A bit of a walk to the main part of town. Nice room, spacious and quiet. Staff at reception were very friendly and most helpful with luggage and arranging taxi services. One morning we had an early tour and the staff let us eat breakfast before the proper opening time. This was very considerate. Wifi... More

We just loved the Hotel Giglio. The Staff were so accommodating. They helped us with our train tickets, laundry service, luggage storage, dinner reservations and other needs that came up during our stay. They are in a great location, especially since our daughter was studying at Gonzaga in Florence around the corner ;). We walked to everything - Duomo, Uffizi,... More

We were a little taken aback by the entrance to the hotel. You enter into a dark foyer with a large staircase and sign saying the elevator is to the left. What you find is the smallest elevator you'll ever stand in behind a door and a cage. Weird, but pretty cool. Once you get to the second floor you... More

This is a small hotel. About 5-10 minutes from the train station by cab. Check in was a breeze. You will be greeted by a huge door and a flight of stairs. They do have an elevater that can only fit 1 person with 2 luggages so that's how we brought up our big bags, via the lift. Check in... More

Lovely hotel with very friendly staff but it doesn't stand out when looking for it for the first time. Via Cavour is an important street leading to the Duomo but Hotel Giglio is not on the ground floor and the sign only says "Hotel". There is a small elevator which is handy for luggage but I usually took the stairs.... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
