The hotel is tucked into one of the smaller streets of Venice. The place is very convenient as it is Very near the Rialto Bridge. The Host were wonderful and helped us get around and plan out sight seeing by giving suggestions of the main places to visit. The rooms are well maintained and had a rustic look to them.... More

Great location. Lots of getting lost to find it first, but that's part of the charm of Venice! Clean room and friendly staff. The breakfast was a little limited but otherwise everything was very good. The man on the desk booked us tickets for a concert so was very helpful.

Arco Antico Guest House (formerly Ca' Arco Antico) was recommended in a New York Times travel article as an inexpensive family-friendly hotel. We stayed for nearly a week and found it to be a very pleasant place to stay. The breakfast was good and the staff very helpful. As with nearly any address in Venice, you'll need to follow the...

This little, nice hotel is perfect located for trips. Really not easy to find. If you come by water-taxi, the driver will bring you nearly in front of the door (40m straight). Very friendly service! Simple breakfast-buffet, but ok. Rooms are big enough and everything is clean. Restaurants and bars nearby. I will come back!

We had a 3 night stay in a standard twin room in Ca Arco Antico in October. Undoubtedly, having read through other reviews, our room was one of the smaller available. There was no gap between the 2 beds, which were smaller than a normal single size, obviously converting into a double as required. The view from our window was... More

This is an old-fashioned, beautifully furnished B and B in the buzzy San Polo district about two blocks back from the Grand Canal. We had the Canaletto room which has a balcony with a view of the Canal, limited but enough to see the sun glittering on the water and boats passing which is a great view to wake up... More

This is a B&B or guest house, not hotel. But you have of course your own bathroom, and a very spacious room. Bathroom is small and kind old. Old look is good in venice, but only for decoration. Here you can see some problems with few things like shower door not sliding easily, etc. A renovation will be nice keeping... More

Perfect location in Venice very close to the Rialto bridge. There was a Vaporetto stop very nearby so getting around was very easy, even with luggage. The staff was extremely helpful and couldn't be more accommodating. The breakfast was light, as are most in Italy, and of course the coffee was excellent. We feel that staying in a B&B is... More

Ideal location. Near to Rialto bridge and good restaurants. Room was fine. Nothing fancy but excellent value. Staff were really friendly and helpful with good language. The hotel was quite hard to find so make sure you read their instructions on locating it first! I would definitely recommend this.

We booked a room that slept our family of 4 - not so easy to find! Wonderful stay, had fun finding the place (as with all places in Venice) and the concierge had great recommendations for restaurants and advised us to take trip the Burano ... which ended up being one of the highlights of our visit. Highly recommended for... 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.
