The location is perfect for everything - sightseeing, easy reachable from the train station, vaporetto stop round the corner, best bars and restaurants nearby, just in the centre (not in the main tourist areas though). The room was fine and clean; yes, the furnishing is little bit outdated, but come on, you are in a hotel in the lively heart... More

I believe I got good value for what I paid. It's certainly not fancy with bells and whistles but if you just need a place to crash at the end of the night it works. The location was convenient and in the end I wasn't there to sit in the hotel room all day.

We only had one night in Venice so for a place to sleep this hotel would do. However it was around 100+ € for one night in a double room which was insane considering the room was incredibly dirty - stained walls, sheets and one cupboard falling apart. The wifi didn't work in our room (106) and the man at... More

This was a last minute find and price was in line with what people charge in Venice. The room was okay and quiet at the back but the hot water never arrived... shame. So that in addition to no breakfast for 80 euros was not very good value for money. There are a lot more choice in Venice for this... More

We booked the room last minute. The hotel location it's awesome literally 2 mins walk to the city centre. That's the only good thing. Poor customer service. I asked the guy at the reception if I can have an extra map and he complained for my request. (?)The room it's small and the bathroom it's even smaller, the sink was... More

We paid for 2 nights in this hotel through Despegar (a disastrous Argentinian company), a standard room for 2 persons with private bathroom. First night they relocated us in another dirty 1 star hotel, in the 2nd floor with shared bathroom because they were overbooked! The person in the second hotel told us that we had to leave the next... More

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.
