Stayed here 20-25 November. Superb hotel. Easy to get to from the airport, just a walk away from San Stae waters stop. Clean and classy. The room was just right, even though we had to turn down the heating. Breakfast good. Staff knowledgeable and polite. Well stocked bar, if a little pricey, but what the hell, we were on holiday....

We arrived here as our 1st stop on our honeymoon. It was really easy to find after getting the public water taxi from the airport to San stae. The gentleman on reception was very helpful throughout our stay. He also booked us somewhere to eat as we'd arrived pretty late. We were given a complimentary upgrade as a gift which... More

The location of hotels in Venice is important as public transport and hotel transfer are expensive plus aqua alta can create chaos. This hotel worked well! San Stae is 500 meters away and there is only 1 bridge to carry your suitcase over. The hotel gives great easy to follow directions. There is a vaporetto stop and Alilaguna (ferry) at... More

This is a lovely hotel situated on the canal. We arrived by rail from Germany and took a water taxi to our hotel. Beware, water taxi is inexpensive, don't book with local boat owners, they are way overpriced! The hotel was very nice, great staff, we loved wandering through all the little streets. At times, we felt a little like... More

My wife booked this hotel as a surprise for me, and what a surprise it was. A recently renovated 'palazzo' with private garden and dock for the water taxi, located at only a minute walk of the San Stae vaporetta stop.

Very good location to explore Venice. The old palazzo is not easy to find but after passing the little garden it really gives you the feeling to be in a different world.

Excellent location right on the canal. You can take a water taxi right from the train which will drop you off right next to the hotel. The view out to the water from the small dock is wonderful. When you first walk through the narrow alley it does not look very impressive until you walk into the small courtyard entrance.... More

The hotel location is good -- right on the grand canal and by the vaporetta station, but St Mark's Square is about 30 minutes by vaporetta, probably much less if you walk, which we didn't. We had room 205 - a deluxe canal view - but I wouldn't consider it "deluxe", more like acceptable. The view overlooked the vaporetta station,... More

This hotel was great. However, we walked into a perfume drenched room. It was so bad that we could not sleep and I got a horrible headache.

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.
