I shall certainly stay at San Samuele again. The location is great, the room my daughter and I had was fine and - very important in my book, but rarely easy to find - the situation is quiet. No television coming through the walls from neighbouring rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, a little library of books about Venice, ease...

The first impression of this hotel was deceptive. After walking through a dingy courtyard, and up some well worn stairs, we emerged into a dull reception area. However, our room on the first floor was large by any standards, and we had a fabulous newly renovated bathroom, which would have put many highter rated hotels to shame. Service was efficient...

I would second all of devourk's comments about San Samuele. We stayed in a smaller room but we were still perfectly comfortable.

Rick Steves said this was a "backpacker's dump". I don't think that was a fair evaluation. They do keep the place clean and it is nicely located in Venice. Not a new lavish place by any means, but we needed a clean place to sleep and that's what it is. The staff is friendly and helpful.

A very nice small hotel, "Venecian style", probably one of the best in this price category in Venice. Clean and cosy, very good location (easily reachable by foot from the main touristic sites and public means). We were a bit afraid what to expect from a 1star hotel, but I guess 1 star was granted due to a small size,...

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood 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.
