Thanks to tripadvisor I brought my family (wife, son 6 and daughter 3) to this lovely hotel. Very reasonably priced, in a wonderful, central but quiet location,the staff were charming, helpful and supportive. We arrived soaked on a rainy day, early, and they rush-cleaned our room for us so we could change. On our last day they made sure we...

I will begin with a caveat--perhaps the rest of the hotel is lovely. However, the room we had was HORRIBLE (it was in the "annex" or "dependance"). Up many many stairs. The breakfast was self-service--meaning prepackaged croissants (disgusting). No modern conveniences at all, and on top of that the heating did not work. Trust me it was cold...and to top...

Management response:

Dear Sir, since we opened this business 3 years ago, you are the only unhappy guest we had among thousands very satisfied customers, as all the comments show, that keep coming back and suggest our hotel to their friends. The room you had is located in our depandance which is basicly B&B and is a very romantic loft that many...

Intimate family-run 8 room hotel. Rooms given names of Venetian composers and painters rather than numbers - a very nice touch. We stayed in the Tiepolo room for 3 nights. Views out onto courtyard. A small but elegant room with airconditioning, exposed beams and modern tiled bathroom. Loads of character. No lift, and one flight of stairs. Intimate breakfast room...

On a whim, my husband and I took a side trip to Venice during our Italy vacation. We had no hotel reservations, but I did have the name of this guest house based upon my research here on TripAdvisor. We walked to San Polo from the train station (long, but Venice is so very interesting) and had some difficulty finding...

We enjoyed the location of this B&B, right in the heart of San Polo and near the Grand Canal. We were made to feel very welcome by the two couples who run the Locanda. The only downside was that the quad room was actually a double with two extra beds, and a bit small for the four of us (although...

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.
