Small room, tiny (ridiculously small) bathroom with tired furniture. Staff were disinterested and breakfast was poor - 7.30am and they had run out of bread! I definitely would not recommend this hotel.

Much will depend on the room you are given, but ours was initially a broom closet, upgraded to something marginally bigger when I complained. We certainly never saw a room like the ones advertised on the website. The only plus is the proximity to San Marco - if that's what interests you. The room was clean, but very small, tired and badly in need of refurbishment. The staff were barely civil. Plenty of mosquito bites, though in fairness that's nobody's fault. All in all, it put me off the ... Read more

We really enjoyed this hotel. We were located in the annex building in a large two-bedroom room with a kitchen, two bathrooms, dining room and living room with sofa bed. I have no idea how we got that particular room; we worked with a travel agent. We did hear the folks walking above us, and the decor was ornate but a little tired - but overall, we loved it because of the location. We very much liked being so close to San Marco Square that we can pop "home" anytime. As Americans used to large be... Read more

This beautiful hotel is located in a great spot, a minute from Piazzo San Marco, but far enough away from the crowds. Short walk from the pier, easily access with wheeled luggage. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and updated and decorated nicely. Definitely would recommend the hotel to others and if I ever get a chance to go back to Venice I would stay there. Breakfast that came with the room rate was worth it, a variety of tasty dishes.

The hotel is just one minute walk from San Marco square. A water bus brings you very close. We were in an annex building that was just around the corner. 2 bedrooms and large bathroom. Small kitchen with microwave and fridge and hot plate but no dishes pots or utensils. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is charming and very clean

A small old hotel with lots of character. The room I stayed in was quite dark but it did have a large safe, a good bathroom and large king size bed. Breakfast was very good plenty of selection but nothing hot. The hotel was welcoming even though I was only spending one night there.

This hotel is near to the San Marcos square and in walking distance to the shopping areas and important sites. It's a old building and perfectly maintained and given a Royal look. Rooms are smaller but are ok. Linens are clean. Staff is friendly courteous. Very good breakfast.

This hotel is wonderful! The staff was not only good looking people but also very friendly! They were very accommodating and helpful. The location is just a few steps away from San Marco Square. The rooms were always very clean and they replace all the soaps and shampoos. They room is quite huge and doesn't have any smell. The breakfast is also very delicious. If you are going on a budget and want the best, you should stay in this hotel.

Loved the hotel, the location is fantastic - 10 second walk to St Marks square. If you're coming from the airport (Marco Polo), get the water bus - easily sign posted and get the blue line. Back to the hotel - the breakfast is really nice and a great selection, just beware of the city tax - £4.95 per person per night, I'm sure it would be the same elsewhere. Double room was two beds pushed together and the rooms are small but I'd definitely stay there again. Location is perfect...

The hotel was very clean and very conveniently located close to Piazza San Marco. It was a little hard to find ( as I suspect many places in Venice are, but that adds to the charm) The breakfast was a little skimpy but flavorful. The air conditioning worked very well. The staff was pleasant enough but not extraordinarily friendly. The furnishings were acceptable but a bit dated.

Perfect location, our suite was great, breakfast needs improvement. staff were helpful, elevators were big enough to fit two suitcases. Breakfast food was disappointing. Fruit tasted strange, juice was watered down, for the cost to add breakfast we were expecting a little better.

The regular "queen" or "double" beds are small. very small. so small you can't walk freely if a single suitcase is on the ground. no free space. Small bathroom quarters. but my point is, if you simple go to your room, see it, come back to lobby, and inquire about any free upgrades they can help with, they will transfer you to a suite for free that is mind blowing. we couldn't believe our eyes. awesome awesome stay. great location. friendly staff ready to please. but DONT go on free "tour" of gal...

No dramas. Rooms are quaint, pretty, if dated......but that's most of Venice. Hot showers, minibar, comfy bed, great location. 60 euros for a private taxi to San Marcos square, then a 10 min hike with luggage, but worth it, as the free ferry can take well over an hour, and it's packed. To get back to the station, come out of the hotel, turn right, and head for Rialto bridge. This is where the free ferry has a short cut. 7 euros, and 15 mins to the airport.

Great location off the San Marco square and perfect if you want to see the sights quickly from the hotel. Near the water taxi drop off as well. Service is ok - ranges from fantastic to OK depending on who you meet at the busy front desk. We were upgraded to a suite with a balcony in the rabbit warren that is this hotel. Great to have a balcony. Would recommend for location alone. Rooms facing inward are quiet.

This hotel's location is ideal, being an easy walk into San Marco Square and in the other direction towards Accademia. There are plenty of restaurants nearby as well. We were proudly told that we'd been upgraded to a "superior" room, but it turned out to be a cramped room with a double bed on the mezzanine which had an impossibly low roof, and two single beds for our teenaged boys downstairs in the very small living area. We expected better for our daily tariff.

Got a room at very short notice. Small room at the top floor suited us perfectly. 3 beds, needed only 2, not big, but functioning bathroom with shower. Clean an tastefully restored room. Ok breakfast, but the location gets the highest scores. Venice is a nice labyrinth, but perfectly accessible with San Marco as base!

The Hotel Royal San Marco in Venice is perfectly located in the hub of everything! The staff were lovely and the rooms were perfect! We will absolutely stay again on our next visit??

I made resv. for San Marco Palace, but ended up in San Marco Hotels; apparently, they run several properties. If you are a light sleeper, bring war plugs! Walls are thin & water-pipes, elevators & doors make a LOT of noise. They also seem short-staffed for their breakfast buffet. Location is great, right off of ST Marco Plaza, but there are detractions.

Location was great right next to St marks square and other attractions were easily accessible. Breakfast was good with a wide choice and good quality. Reception staff helpful and friendly. Room was small and uncomfortable but did like the authentic feel. We were on floor 6 and the lift only went to floor 4 so had to use stairs for the rest which wasn't ideal with suitcases.

This hotel was in a perfect location so close to St Marks Square. We were fortunate to get a good deal and a large room. The room was clean although in need of renovation. The breakfast was good however as we were leaving people were queuing to come in and there weren't enough tables. We were there at same time as friends. They had paid significantly more than us and their room was awful. As in other reviews it was so small they could barely move. It was also very shabby. If you do book I sugges... Read more

Situated about 1-2 min walk from Saint Mark's Square, the hotel is in an excellent spot for the main tourist sites. That being said, you are then a significant walk to the better, non-touristy areas and restaurants, and the quieter side of Venice. So it depends on your itinerary whether you enjoy the location. The staff were friendly and helpful, but the policy of giving your key back from behind reception without asking for a name felt a bit lacking in security, especially when dealing with a s...

Very central hotel just near the San Marco square. The room was huge and the beds were really comfortable. The hotel has an elevator and great air condition which were very important for us. The breakfast was really rich. On the other hand, we had no warm water at the shower and the water pressure was poor

Great location. You can stroll around St Mark's Square early morning and in the evening before all the day tourists arrive! Magical square when it is quiet! The reception staff were always helpful and cheerful! The breakfasts were really good. The bedrooms are small but you expect that in the centre of Venice. The huge plus point is being literally next to St Mark's Square

Although the location of this hotel is very close to Piazza San Marco, this is about the only reason to stay here. Our room was located on the sixth floor which can only be accessed by an elevator that stops at the fourth floor, and then four flights of old, wooden stairs.

Situated jus behind San Marco Square - the location is sure to please - even better is the fact that if you arrive by water bus from the port/airport and get off at San Marco you only have to carry your luggage over ONE foot bridge to get there - a definite plus in Venice!!

We have been staying here for four days and while the room is small, it is suitable. Very clean room and bathroom, although the bathroom smells occasionally very strong of sewer. We poured a lot of water down the drains, kept the toilet lid closed and drains covered/plugged and it helped a lot. Upgrading the plumbing would help a lot, but we did have very good pressure and hot water. Our room 409 faced the street and we kept the windows open most of the time to allow for nice air flow.

I will start this review by saying that I'm a lover of cheap hostels and other accommodation while traveling, so I'm used to things being a little grimy, cramped or loud. I'm not just overly nitpicking. This hotel is in a fantastic location, just a few minutes walk fom San Marco square, roughly 10 minutes from the Rialto bridge and 10 from the closest water bus stop. That is where the positive ends. The room was tiny and painfully outdated, which is pretty standard in Venice. I can get over tha... Read more

Good service and very good reception staff. We were given a suite of rooms so had a lounge area a bedroom , bathroom and funnily enough a kitchen/meals room without any crockery/cutlery so we could not make our own meals. Never mind. The hotel was so well located and our rooms spacious and we had cafes and restaurants on our doorstep at reasonable prices. We are happy with our choice.

The suite was very clean and functional the curtains was not working 100% but overall it gave a nice feel of Venice. The location of the hotel was right by saint Mark's square, great base to explorer the site from. I would highly recommend this place as a first time visit.
