Superb spot to get to all parts of Venice as well as being very close to the water taxi. The staff are amazing and always keen and ready to help. Our luggage was delayed by 1 day and they couldn't do enough to assist us in getting some clothes and toiletries to get us through until it arrived. The breakfasts...

We stayed just the one night in Venice before flying home after a mini tour of Florence and the north of Italy. The hotel is about 30 seconds walk from a water bus stop called Saint Maria del Giglio or just Giglio as tsome seem to call it. When we arrived in Venice we caught the water bus from the...

Me and my partner stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The hotel is central to most things and easy to find. For our view we had a little canal which was nice. The maids do a lovely job of cleaning the room and the bathroom is beautiful. Breakfast is very good too. For dinner we went to a restaurant...

Our room was for three adults so that was a bit challenging. We were up at the top, in the attic? The great thing was there was an elevator which is not readily available in Europe. The room was spacious, but it had a step up in the middle of the room which I thought would be a challenge in...

It was a wonderful experience and we will go back. GREAT LOCATION. Staff couldn't have been nicer. Short walk to San Marcos square and all the great shops. The water bus is just steps away and can take you all through Venis and the Islands.

We wanted to end our anniversary trip in style, and Hotel Ala helped us do it! From check in to check out this place treats all visitors like royalty. The short 100-meter walk from the local water-taxi stop to the hotel offers ease of finding it and getting back out to tour. The room we had was lavishly decorated, looked...

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.
