We booked this place for a special anniversary. We had come here on our honeymoon and had a room overlooking a canal. So we wanted to have a great experience again. As their website advertised that the rooms overlook the canal (quote from website: "The rooms, with bathroom and air conditioning, overlook a typical Venetian canal, along which our guests... More

This place was such a delicious surprise. Our room was large and very decadently decorated with gilt and red drapes (we had to have a "selfie photo shoot" as soon as we arrived!). Staff were really friendly and helpful. And such an amazing location in the middle of everything. We could lean out our window and watch the Gondolas float... More

Our hotel room was quite big and extremely clean! Although we barely spent anytime in there, I was happy with the price I paid for the room. This location is great because everything is closeby within 5 minutes. I would definitely recommend this place for first timers in venice.

We happened upon this wee restaurant by accident. Not elegant in decor. Very eclectic. But the food...OMG! Everything was fresh and delish. The gentleman server was crazy funny and even gave me a bag of their pasta to take home. Good wine too.

Like any hotel in Venice it was initially hard to find. We arrived late from our flight but had called ahead.

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.
