Nice location but not nice rooms. Understand it’s a centuries old building but if you’re looking for modern conveniences in amenities this is not the location. However staff is very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast buffet was nothing special. I would not stay at this...More
My two nieces and I stayed at San Sebastiano and considered it the best hotel of our 5-city European tour. Umberto and Davido gave us excellent suggestions on things to see and where to eat, even getting us reservations at the last minute at a...More
We stayed at this hotel as part of a package deal with friends and were lucky to be able to after the collapse of Monarch. We did not have any transfers from the bus terminus in Venice booked and made our own way to the...More
The hotel is beautiful with its antique furnishings and the staff was first class. They are very professional and very kind. Our room didn't really have a view but it didn't really matter because we were out most of the time anyway. The room was...More
Perfect location to pick up one of the smaller cruise ships, walkable within a couple of minutes with cases to the terminal. We got up, had breakfast and left our cases with the porter whilst we explored Venice.
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.

The 'airport shuttle' is a bus that takes you from Treviso airport onto the Venice main island. You have to pay, but it's very reasonable (I think about Eur8 - single) and you can buy the tickets just before you board the bus. I seem to remember we bought ours from a Ryanair agent while we were in the departure queue in London which saved us having to queue at Treviso.
From where the bus stops (Piazzale Roma), you could walk, or much better if you have luggage, you can take the water bus to San Basilio. From there it's a very short walk to the hotel.
When you get to Piazzale Roma you can buy various types of water bus (Vaporetto) tickets from the ticket kiosks. We bought 3 day passes and as you can use these to go on any waterbus, including the ones that take you out to Lido, Buranno and Muranno, found them good value.
Very easy indeed. You take the Blue line Alilaguna water bus from Marco Polo airport and get off at Zattere. Cost is 15 Euros. There is a ticket office as you approach the boats. It is quite a stroll from the airport... More
Very easy indeed. You take the Blue line Alilaguna water bus from Marco Polo airport and get off at Zattere. Cost is 15 Euros. There is a ticket office as you approach the boats. It is quite a stroll from the airport terminal building and the signage is not too good but you just have to look.
You can walk to the hotel easily from the stop at Zattere as it is flat ground and there is a ramp over the one brideg if you are pulling cases. You have the water on your left and buildings on your right and at the end - just past the supermarket - you turn right - across a square and the hotel is on the right past some small shops.
You can take a vaparetto water bus from Zattere to the next stop San Basilo if you want to and that would only leave about 200 metres to the hotel across the small square and alongside the canal.
It is VERY worthwhile getting the two or three day passes for the vaperettos - hoping on and off is easy and they take you everywhere. It is the easiest way to see the Grand Canal...and the cheapest! Hope this helps?
