Hotel San Samuele
Ranked #97 of 385 Hotels in Venice
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Folks, ya' don't stay here on your honeymoon, but for all other travel, this is the ticket. Finding a cheap hotel in Venice is extremely daunting, but the San Samuele makes cheap respectable. My single room with shared bath in June was 63 euro and the room was just fine, the shared bath very clean and always available. There was a heat wave when I was here, but the fan provided adequate ventilation for a good and quiet nights sleep--yes, it's a quiet yet strategic location which is very important in Venice.

Believe all the positive reviews below because the San Samuele is the kind of place that gives shoestring travel a good name. Buon viaggio!!!

Dear Guest,
many thanks for this positive review you wrote us, we know Venice is quite an expensive city to visit and we are happy you could find the right hotel at the right price for you. As you said, the hotel is in a strategic position, close to the San Samuele Vaporetto stop and at a stone's throw to the main monuments and attractions. So we are happy you spent some lovely days with us anjoying both the services of our structure as well as the city and its beauties.
Kind regards

The best things about the hotel are the location and the friendliness. The staff are warm and really take the initiative in helping out to avoid tourist traps and recommend places to go beyond the obvious ones. The location is really convenient, 10 minutes to Rialto and 10 to St Mark's Square, there's even a handy Alimentari nearby.
Slight disadvantages in terms of no air con and a rather cramped bathroom, as well as two single mattresses pushed together posing as a double. Mostly very pleased with our stay however.

Dear Guest,
thanks for choosing Hotel San Samuele, I'm pleased you had a lovely stay and enjoyed our company.

Thanks again, looking forward to welcoming you again, kind regards

Ok, this place is not five star by any means but it's cheap and the people who work there are amazingly friendly and helpful. But the best part is the location - slap bang in the middle of everything. Ten mins walk to the Rialto, ten mins to St Mark's Square. You might have trouble finding the hotel - we did - but don't let that put you off. If you want to do Venice on a budget then this is for you. Make sure you've got your walking shoes on though as there's a lot of steps to climb to some rooms.

Have been staying in this lovely place already twice in a single room and a triple room with the bathroom. I just love the location, you can get everywhere from San Samuele and walk all over Venice. Piazza with all caffes for breakfast is just around the corner. Rooms are very nice, clean, all the facilities worked perfectly. Very helpful people on the reception. Many thanks to Lucia for the hospitality and advices on Venice. Love the street where it is situated. Wifi is superfast and free! Library is charming, have lots of travel guides and some art books and magazines. Will definitely recommend San Samuele to my friends and will definitely come back.

Thanks to their Web site, the location was simple to find. Very important given the twists and turns Venice can force upon first-time visitors. Hotel staff was extremely helpful, providing maps and recommending restaurants and local orchestras. The room was comfortable, nicely decorated and had all amenities needed including wi-fi. A great value in Venice and a nice, quiet location away from the tourist hustle.

We had a great experience at Algergo San Samuele.
It's located a few steps from the vaporetto ride from the train station (a bit further if you are arriving late). It's less than 10 min walk from Piazza Di San Marco, where all the action is.
Staff is really nice and friendly.
I definetly recommend it!

We recently stayed 3 nights here, and it was perfect for our stay. The owner set us up with a very nice room with small, but clean bathroom. The staff were very helpful with directions on getting there, and were available for any questions. Its a short 100m from the San Samuele Vaporetto stop, and so centrally located that you can walk to any of the major sites, restaurants and locations in a short time. Venice was our favorite city, thank you!!

Room Tip: Book with the hotel direct rather than through a travel website!
