Staying in San Samuele was great. We reached Venice late and found it quite easily. The hotel is in an old house which gives it a good old feel. Staff is friendly and helpful. The place is not expensive and is reasonable with good facilities like a huge bathroom and reasonably sized rooms.

I spent 3 nights here during my short stay in Venice. The supposedly 1-star Hotel felt just like that of a 1-star Hotel and I have stayed in hostels which had better facilities and security than that of this hotel. If you're taking the train into Venice, do note this hotel is an approximate 2km walk from the rail station....

Venice is very expensive. That's how it is. So the 125 EUR / night we paid for a double room is probably at the lower end of the price spectrum, even if it doesn't seem like "budget" in the usual sense. The location is very good - in a typically charming Venetian lane just ten minutes walk from the Piazza...

We stayed at this hotel on our second trip to Venice - the first trip we stayed at Mestre and really wanted to be in Venice itself this time.

I was a bit uncertain about this hotel, having read mixed reviews on Trip Adviser, and because it was, for Venice, really, really, cheap.

The location is excellent, suite was quiet and very clean, climbing the stairs was not easy for us but the very pleasant staff helped - suggest putting a lift in the space available.

Dear Ronaviva, Thank you very much for leaving a nice comment! Indeed we are located on a very old charming building with steps to get to the reception. We hope to keep the typical atmosphere as a lift would completely change the "feel' of our authentic palazzo! We do have a few rooms on the 1st floor and we can...

We had an en suite room. I think some rooms aren't en suite, which could be a nuisance. But we found it fairly basic, but clean and quiet, and the staff were very patient and helpful with our numerous questions. And it's in a great central location, but nevertheless very quiet in the evening.

We stayed here for one night in September 2010. It is in a good location, close to San Marco and a water-bus stop. Accommodation is clean but very basic. Nothing special. We had a shared bathroom, which was clean and well appointed. You need to leave your key with the reception when you leave, which was fine. Reception staff not...

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.
