You are so close to St Mark's Square, the Basillica bells will pleasantly wake you in the morning [a low chime, even through the double-glazed windows]. The staff were very friendly. The room was neat and clean. The bathroom is tiny, the shower especially so, but given the premium attached to space in Venice, it is expected. The included breakfast...

Stayed at this hotel whilst visiting Venice. This hotel really is in the perfect location, less than a 2 min walk from St Marks Square. Its easy to find as well, the hotel website has great travel options to the hotel and they are 100% accurate. The hotel is a more 3-4* hotel and is very very clean, there is...

Spent a short break at this small hotel and it was ideal for what we wanted from our trip to Venice. It's location is first class and only 2 minutes walk from St Mark's Square. You need to remember that not many hotels in Venice have lifts (maybe just the big posh hotels have) so if you are up on...

I understand now why a 2 star hotel gets top ratings. Spot on right at the centre. From breakfast room can see San Marco's domes. We had a bargain where we booked for five nights and got the fifth one free, paying only for four. Room quite spacious with all that one expects. May be the only flaw, TV had...

We took the waterbus direct from the airport to St Marks Square, taking little over an hour, and found the Hotel easily with the use of the hotel websites map. Hotel was small and quaint and right in the midst of everything. Our room on the 3rd floor was perfectly acceptable and clean, although the bathroom was rather on the...

We booked two rooms as part of a British Airways special offer - total including flights was £175 per person which was fantastic value. The best thing about this small hotel is its location just over a block away from St Mark's Square. We transferred from the airport by water bus. Tickets were purchased in the airport arrivals lounge and...

We stayed here during the opening weekend of Carnivale. The location is great. It is very close to St. Marks square. Lots of cute restaurants/bars nearby. The hotel was a good value. Clean rooms and friendly staff. We stayed on the first floor so there was a bit of noise by people walking by at night. It was a little...

A three night stay with BA holidays - great value, very friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable, smallish rooms - definitely not soundproof, but we had no noise problems. Location terrific, with lots of interesting shops and eateries, and so close to St Mark's Square. Nice breakfast with good coffee. And above all with Venice, no noise from traffic!

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.
