This is a $400/night hotel. I would have rated it higher except for 2 issues. First, at this price, I expect free wifi at least in the lobby. They charged for it everywhere. Second, the attitude of a couple of the fellows at the desk was impatient and a bit condescending when we asked for directions and restaurant recommendations. Also,...

We arrived at the hotel by water taxi. Check in went smoothly. Our room was nicely appointed but much smaller than expected and a little tattered given the price. The wall was beat up and had chips of missing paint that would seem easy enough to fix. We freshened up and then took off by foot to explore this part...

We has booked into another hotel, San Cassiano Residenza D'Epoca.

We were given no explanation at all, but were taken round with our luggage and they didn't seem surprised to see us...most...

Start with a welcoming outdoor terrace, a beautiful reception area, a full breakfast room with excellent cappuccino and service. the room was a little warm, so I had to change rooms, but the rooms were very nice and comfortable. it is within walking distance of the rialto bridge and several restaurants. I'd go again in a heartbeat.

This hotel was perfect for the beginning of our honeymoon. It’s nestled away in a corner of Venice, but so close to everything just a water bus trip away. We were confused as to how to find the entrance of the hotel, but we figured it out and when we did it was a bonus because it was right next...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Palazzo Giovenelli. We were booked at another hotel and were moved due to problems with the hot water heater and feel that we got the better end of the deal! The location was perfect. You could walk to the Rialto Bridge and the Jewish Ghetto. It was in a quiet area but very...

My husband (along with help from a very good friend), chose this hotel as a surprise 50th birthday treat. The hotel itself was absolutely stunning, and ideally situated.

We chose this hotel from the Kuoni website because it was a boutique (around 40 rooms) hotel but still on the Grand Canal. We liked the appearance of the rooms and they lived up to expectations.

The description, "tranquil stillness interrupted by passing gondolas and water etc". Vaporetti stopping outside your window until gone midnight, deliveries of everything to the dock next to the Vaporetto stop, outside your window, from six in the morning. Natives going to and returning from work, children going to and returning from school, all talking at the top of their voices....

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.
