We were celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary, and this hotel made it extra special. The staff were very good and helpful, the breakfast was great, and there were some stunning rooms - up the main staircase. The bedroom was very clean

The hotel was located close to San Stae waterboat station (adjacent to the square). A very handy location that is not in the hub of tourist central but within minutes of it. Very handy location to get to and from the Marco Polo airport. The staff on reception were very friendly and professional. Breakfast was a buffet with scrambled eggs,...

1 night stay which was ideal for location, situated next to the San Stae riverboat stop (you can catch this from the train station for €7.50 or €20 for 24hrs). The hotel is clean and petite. Our room, i have to say was very disappointing. The bathroom was average, not a 4* in my opinion. The room was extremely small....

Pros: Location, Staff, Cleanliness, Cons: Wifi, Room size (if you happen to be above average size), This hotel was great.I was delighted with the location. It is close enough to the Rialto bridge without being in the heart of things. I liked the walk and getting to know the alley ways and bridges. When we wanted a less crowded experience...

Great location on the Grand Canal, quick access to Venice airport via water taxi. The room was very spacious. Serves a great breakfast with large selection. The front desk was very helpful suggesting dinning locations and arranging the water taxi to the airport.

We spent 4 nights at this hotel, and it was ideal in every way. First the location is ideal, we got a boat taxi from the airport, and the stop was a 2 minute walk from the hotel. It's situated right on the Grand Canal, 5 minutes from the Rialto fish market (which is definitely worth a visit). Our room...

We recently stayed here for 4 nights on our trip to Venice. This hotel is perfect, the room was lovely and the service was great. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a touch of luxury and class. The Wifi was a little temperamental at times but who needs the internet in the most romantic city in the world! ;)

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.
