Let's start with the part people won't like as much. Hotel San Carlo is not in a charming, romantic part of Venice. It's in Mestre, where most Venetians have moved in recent years. It's a pretty pragmatic, unassuming modern city. That being said, you are only 20 minutes away by tram to historic Venice. The tram stop is about a... More

Staff were very helpful and provided all information and tickets for tram. It has good connection to Venice city via tram. Didn't like the breakfast though, no hot options. Apart from that the rooms are neat and clean. Would recommend for family tourists.

We asked for a silent room on Booking.com, but we dont get that. When we checkin, we mentioned it, so they gave us a silent room, so its okay. They have private parking places, it was a big red point for us. The room was clean, but a little more "retro style" than expected. Typical one-night room, nothing good in... More

This has been the go-to hotel for Venice for our family for years. We come to northern Italy frequently and the hotel is very convenient to Marco Polo airport to return to the States. I can't add anything positive that hasn't already been said about Hotel San Marco. We use it primarily for the flight connection, but always manage at... More

Rooms are clean with air conditioning. Close to tram stop for easy access to Venice. Reasonable value restaurants nearby. Breakfast is continental. Reasonable choice of food. Walls are wafer thin and so you'll hear everything. Not the guests fault. Advertised as having free private parking with no reservation required. This is not true as there were no spaces available when... More

Friendly and helpful staff. Staff speak English, Spanish and Italian (and maybe more). AC works well. Breakfast ( included) was quite nice. Location is great. It's a short walk (two short blocks) from a tram stop for the T1 tram that zips to the island of Venice. Rooms were large by European standards

The hotel was an affordable option for us when we went back to Venice for the one night as we had an early flight to London the next day. It was very easy getting into Venice from here as the Tram line is behind the hotel and there are several bus services out the front, even to the airport. The... More
