I was really surprised as how much I liked this hotel. Being that I paid £167 for a triple room for one night in an area were the average price seemed to be £300-400 it was a nice surprise. Hotel is clean, room was bigger than I thought it would be for Venice, the bathroom was huge. Comfortable beds and air con worked fine. Average Wifi speed from room 8 was between 8-10 mbps and it's free. Loved how Venetian the hotel was, leads off onto this small historic square. A few minutes more round the corner and you've got St Marks Square. 5 minutes away from Rialto bridge. 10 minute walk from one of the main harbours for the ferries. A nice continental breakfast is offered on the roof terrace. Juice, cake, croissants, toast and cereal etc. Management and receptionist are extremely helpful. Prices of in bar drinks not bad either. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you :)

It's a good place to go sightseeing in Venice. Staffs were so kind and warm welcome. I will visit next year again. I stayed a double room, it's a little small room. it's hard to open 2 luggages.

Great location and amazing service. Nicolas helped us to print train tickets, pack a breakfast as we had to leave early, help us with a map... everything to make our stay perfect. The rooms are rustic, but very clean and included a safe.

Spent two nights at Hotel San Gallo in April. The most attractive thing about this hotel is the location. It is literally a few minutes from St Mark's square. We arrived on a small river cruise so we had to walk from the docks to the hotel, which was a little difficult as it was so crowded. Upon our arrival at the hotel, we buzzed the desk and the staff immediately came down to help us with our luggage. There are several flights of stairs to contend with as the reception desk is up stairs then we where given a room in another part of the building so we went back down the steps and up other steps to our room. I don't know if there are any rooms on the ground floor or if you can at least request staying in the same area as the reception desk as that is where breakfast is served. It might save you a few steps if you have difficulty with stairs. The room was clean, but small as you would expect with European hotels. The rooms could use a little updating, but overall was adequate. The breakfast was adequate with the normal variety of cold cuts, cereal, breads and pastries. We went us to the rooftop terrace, which was fine, but had no view except the surrounding buildings. The bar is very small and we did not go to same. It is the same area where breakfast is served. The staff are very helpful and there 24/7, which is nice if there is a problem. They helped us arrange to have a porter help us with our luggage to the water bus, which was very nice to not have to navigate the crowds with luggage. How it works is the hotel makes arrangements for the porter to be there and he loads your luggage on a dollie and hauls it where you want him to (we were charged 30 euros for 6 pieces). So the bottem line is...would I stay here again? As long as I can negotiate stairs..absolutely!

The hotel is so beautiful, everybody from the staff is nice with the guest! They recommended a restaurant, wich is so good! The building is 80meter away from the San Marco square, so the location is also perfect! We will come back!

Stayed here with my family for one night in the family room. Room was clean with sufficient space for the 4 of us. Breakfast was provided with bread, meat, cheese, coffee, juice,yogurts, and cereals. Biggest selling point is the proximity to the square. Only a few hundred feet from the hotel. For the price, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Would stay here again.

Very conveniently located close to St Marks Square and other tourist attractions. Nice hotel albeit with smaller rooms and limited facilities. Clean and tidy with very helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast on the roof terrace was different!

This hotel is located 2 mins from Piazza San Marco, 5 minutes from the Grande Canal and the main boat transportation to the Airport and train station. The hotel offers clean and comfortable rooms and a great breakfast to start your day! They also have an outdoor deck to sit back and relax after a long day. The staff is extremely friendly and available 24 hours a day. They also had rooms that would sleep 4 so I didn't have to get 2 rooms. We enjoyed our time here!

Small but cosy. The staff is friendly and helpful. Decent breakfast in a nice rooftop area. The room is clean and has the Venetian style to it. Great location, close to everything. The hotel does not have lifts. If you have a heavy luggage it will be challenging but the staff is always there to help.

This hotel was perfect!!! Set in a quiet square, but still in the main tourist hub of Venice, and only a few steps from all the main tourist attractions. Very quaint. Our venetian styled room was gorgeous. Breakfast was simple but perfect. Staff very friendly.
