About Hotel San Marco

This three-star hotel is located within a 19th century building just a few metres from the beating heart of Venice, St Mark's Square. In addition to its impressive location, the Best Western Hotel San Marco proffers traditional, Venetian-styled rooms.

Elegant yet unfussy, the air-conditioned rooms come with time-honoured Venetian furnishings and feature flat screen TVs, safes, minibars and tea/coffee making facilities as standard. Some rooms enjoy canal or rooftop views.

The hotel has a 24-hour reception where guests can book tours and tickets. Concierge, laundry and babysitting services are also available.

Venetian dishes and international cuisine is served within the wood-panelled surrounds of 'La Colomba' restaurant. Cocktails and an a la carte menu are on hand in the American bar.

All of Venice's principal sights around St Mark's Square: the campanile, the Basilica, the Procuratie Vecchie and the Doge's Palace are just metres from the Best Western Hotel San Marco.

Positive Reviews

Central location enables you to see St Mark's during quieter periods

Staying at this hotel means you can visit St Mark's Square when it isn't besieged by tourists, thus allowing you to appreciate the magical ambience in perfect peace and quiet A Godsend, particularly in the high season.

Guest bedrooms are very evocative

Elegant without being in any way OTT or ostentatious, the guest rooms make you feel like you're in Venice proper when you get through the door.

Very easy hotel to find

Finding your hotel amongst the warren of canals and narrow, winding streets which characterise this beautiful city can often be quite a challenge Thankfully, this is not something you have to worry about when staying at the Best Western Albergo San Marco as practically all of Venice's shuttle boats and water buses (vaporettos) stop close to St Mark's Square.

Negative Reviews

Unusual bathroom layout in some en-suites

Some of the guest bedrooms have bathroom layouts where the shower area is located between the toilet and washbasin This means that the whole floor of the bathroom remains wet after you've had a shower Not ideal, especially if you don't have any flip-flops.

Breakfast isn't the best

It has to be said that, both in terms of service and content, the hotel's breakfast offering – a rather limited Italian buffet affair – falls quite short of what you'd expect from a Best Western Fortunately, you can find a decent morning meal - and enjoy a far more salubrious ambience – in one of the many back street eateries located nearby.

There are some ominous smells

This hotel – like Venice in general – can throw up some unusual, surprising and often quite unpleasant smells at times Fortunately, they tend to dissipate pretty quickly You have been warned.
