My boyfriend and I stayed in Venice during a ten day holiday in Italy.
We arrived in Venice on a water taxi from the airport on the mainland, and the hotel was hard to find! Wheeling luggage in the midday sun through Venice's narrow streets wasn't ideal, but we found the hotel after walking past the street it was on a few times. The staff kindly sent through directions on email before our stay but they weren't incredibly clear to a first time Venice visitor.
We had a very large room which was very clean. The room was incredibly quiet as well - we slept with the window open and could barely hear any outside noise.
The hotel is located about five minutes from Rialto Bridge, and about ten minutes from San Marco. We spent many late afternoons and evenings wandering around the streets near the hotel - full of little canals and bridges with delicious gelaterias and cute shops - everything we love about Venice on the doorstep of this hotel.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Note - we actually stayed in June 2011, but realised this review hadn't been uploaded on my most recent log-in. We wanted to make sure we shared our delight of this hotel despite a year since our stay!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Residenza Ca' San Marco is a cozy inn created from the interiors of what, at the times of the Serenissima Republic, was the ancient monastery of San Salvador. The building, completely renovated, is made up of six spacious rooms, elegantly furnished in Venetian style with extreme care in the finest detail. Staying at Residenza Ca' San Marco you can still feel the charm of the real Venice, far from the tourist and mostly visited courses. ... more less
