I stayed at this hotel for two nights and was very pleased with accommodations and the location. The rooms are good size with nice appointments and a good air conditioner. The managers, both day and night, were very nice. I felt safe at this hotel and would definitely return for another visit. It is a bit difficult to find, but...

We stayed at the Arci Antico for one night on our honeymoon. As a B&B we didnt expect much - just a simple room of standard quality. What we got was a beautiful big room and bathroom, lovely furniture and excellent location.The owners were lovely and helpful and we consider it to be very good value for money. Would definitely...

We have spent 3 nights in Arco Antico in a comfortable , silent and nice room, with a view on the Grande Canale (Room Canaletto). The view on the Grande Canale was a good surprise, since we didn't ask for it and only some of the room have the view. The room was clean, barthroom also, AC was efficient. TV...

We stayed in the Canaletto room and actually planned the end of our trip based around its availability. Our friends stayed at this hotel in December and said we had to stay there when we went in May. The Canaletto room has a peek a boo view of the canal which we enjoyed every night as we sat on the...

My husband and I stayed here during June -2006. It was a nice clean hotel but i think a bit overpriced. It was very hard to find when we arrived in Venice so make sure you have exact directions before you go there. The view from the hotel is not great but it sure is close to lots of good...

My wife and I just returned from a wonderful short holiday in Venice. What a fantastic city. We stayed at the Ca' Arco Antico guest house in the district of San Polo and can't praise it highly enough. Our room was called "Casanova" and had a separate bathroom. Bedroom and bathroom were spacious, beautifully decorated and furnished, spotlessly clean and...

It might have just been because we were in Venice but from the moment we arrived at Arco Antico we loved it. Our room & bathroom was adequate, the breakfast area was very small and didn't offer a huge choice, but apart from this there was a terrific feel about the hotel. The location was wonderful, it's not far from...

This small and friendly b&b has a fantastic, albeit difficult to find, location. Once discovered, it is marvellous and easy to find again. The owners are helpful and courteous. We have stayed here twice and are heading back for our third visit in Feb 2007. The first year, we stayed in the main hotel, then this year, we stayed in...

A lovely Venetian home converted into a small inn. Immaculately clean, charming owners and employees. Very helpful in making restaurant reservations and booking tickets to performances and in offering assistance in any other way. Breakfast is very good and filling. Because of the marble floors and proximity in hallway outside bedrooms, the breakfast service is a little noisy in early...

A great find. We were pleasantly surprised at the spacious rooms and updated bathrooms. Marco and Franco have a beautiful B&B. The location is great too. Very near the Rialto Bridge and situated between 2 water taxi stops. Good breakfast too!

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.
