I stayed here for one night with a friend whilst travelling in northern Italy. Although very old fashioned the hostel was great for one night. The staff were very helpful and checking in was easy. Our room was a room with a double bed which was quite comfy and we were provided with extra blankets as well as towels. Although...

Dear customer, we are so sorry for your experience in our property. About noisy area, we are not sure that you words are true. In Venice there aren’t buses, trams, cars and Venice is also famous for its silentness, quietness. Furthermore is really strange that is “SUPER NOISY AT NIGHTS and in early morning”. There aren’t big nightlife’s areas near...

The hotel was great and its right in the center of Venice. You are able to work to all the main attractions. It is really good value for money and I enjoyed my stay there. I would recommend it for Venice anytime.

We arrived around 9:30/10pm and it seemed like the cheapest accommodation in Venice proper for three girls who are backpacking, and even then it was terribly over priced. When we booked online it said NOTHING about being cash only. And of course we didn't have enough between us and when we finally found an ATM and came back he had...

If u look for a budget stay in Venice, u can consider this hostel. I stayed in a dorm room (4- mix) and it was ok. There is no cabinet with lock in the room. The bed sheet and blanket didnt seem clean. The best part is its location. Walking distance to the Grand Canal bridge and you also can...

This place is disgusting. Smelly, over run with screaming kids. We had the attic room, no ceiling just the roof which is infested with bugs. I had 24 bites on my face, neck, hands arms and back. Absolutely horrid place. DO NOT STAY HERE. The front hall way is filthy dirty, the carpets and walls are filthy, very very noisy.

Staying in San Polo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
