Hotel San Luca

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

this is a very nice comfortable hotel with helpful friendly staff, but the bedroom for room 3 is right above a busy street with a restaurant and they start setting things up at 5:30 am, and it's noisy till late at night. we did not get good rest in room 3. And I wear ear plugs at night. Also, there is a 3.5€ daily tax per person which must be paid in cash.

Located in the heart of Venice just a 3 minute walk from the Rialto bridge and the water bus, the Hotel San Luca is a very good choice for your next holiday. We found getting about Venice quite easy as the location is superb. Only a short walk from the San Marco square and surrounded with shops and restaurants. The staff were friendly and helpful and we found the breakfast a good option to have just before we left the hotel for sightseeing even though it was quite repetitive every day. Our room was well kept and loved the venetian décor. However it faced a side road and was quite noisy unless the window was closed and if we preferred to keep the window open as it felt stuffy when we closed it. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would visit again!

Absolutely satisfied with hotel. We traveled by group of 3 girls and no one is good in reading map. We heard that travelers are easy to get lost in Venice. With our plan, we came in Venice in a late winter afternoon which could be cold and more easy to get lost. Therefore, I have canceled my first booking which very near Piazza San Marco but complicated road, then booked a room in San Luca. When we came in Venice that afternoon, we prepare for a long walk with many questions to local people to find the hotel. But nothings happened. We found the hotel very very easy, just 5 mins walking from the port without any confusing. The receptionist was so friendly in helping us to carry up our luggage and recommend some local restaurants for dinner. The room is a little small for 3 girls but we cannot expect more in Venice. In addition, San Luca seems to be in the centre of Venice island because we can walk to all famous points only in 10 - 20 mins, especially to the port to Burano Island. Moreover, I and my friends were happy with included breakfast in hotel.

Pros: - Very easy to get to from the Water Bus with only one bridge to cross! - Large Room - Great Location! 3 Minute Walk to Rialto Bridge and 5 minute walk to San Marco - Central Air Conditioning that Actually Works! - Comfortable Bed - Complimentary Breakfast - Free WiFi!!!! Cons: - Noisy, especially if your room is near the check-in desk - Expensive ( As is everything in Venice and you pay for location) - Stairs, you have to carry your luggage up 3 short flights of stairs; however the front desk guy is usually willing to help you carry them. There is a chair lift, but we never saw it being used and it was hidden behind strollers and baggage. - Very basic breakfast, ( I guess you get what you pay for, since it's free. Granted my husband thinks it was included in the price of the room) - The cafe/snack bar ( Snack Bar Da Piero/ Bar San Marco) down the street towards San Marco is run by crooks! Avoid this place at all costs they display one price and wait until you eat your food and drink your beverage to tell you the price is double and now they've got you over a barrel and you have no choice but to pay for it. They have changed their name in effort to escape bad reviews, except they were dumb enough to leave their old name on their awning! Hotel San Luca is good and I definitely recommend it! Tip: The hotel's directions aren't exactly correct if you get off the ACTV waterbus routes 1 or 2. - Make a right after getting off the boat - You will pass a wide street on your left - Go over the bridge - Immediately after the bridge, Turn left down the very small alley - Keep walking down the alley for approx. 5 mins - Hotel will be on your right , if you go over another bridge you've gone too far

Stayed in the apartment overlooking the canal. Great location and only a few minutes away from the main hotel building. Clean and nicely furnished with comfy beds. The bathroom is large and has a good shower. We stayed with friends so it would have been useful to have a set of keys per room as it is annoying having to make sure we get back together so we can get in! Keep the windows closed at night or you'll be kept awake by activity on the canal!

It's a simple 3 stars hotel, however with excellent location and very clear. Common area is really basic with small restaurant for breakfast and bar. This is completely irrelevant compared with the location. The rooms are pretty clear and spacious. It's definitely a good option for who is planning to stay the whole day exploring the city and just need a relaxing night.

We stayed in the apartment at this hotel. It is located just around the corner from the main hotel. The best part about the room is that you look down on to the canal and can see the gondolas going past. The worst part - we took three divices (phone, iPads etc) with us for the day and left three in the apartment. The three we left behind were all hacked! Our employee got an email (supposedly from us) asking to transfer money - thankfully he checked with us first! The apartment is two bedrooms and a small kitchen/dining area. The room was not really 'serviced' - he simply brought in new towels which he left on the kitchen table and took away the rubbish. No beds made or items restocked. It's not the end of the world, but just thought I would it. We didn't the breakfast and gladly didn't pay the $8 euro as it didn't look like there was much available.

We stayed at San Luca Hotel for one night but it was extremely comfortable. The hotel is perfectly located, very close to San Marco Square. All the rooms are non-smoking. Our room was renovated and very nicely decorated. The bathroom is spacious, very clean and renovated as well. The continental breakfast was excellent. One of the best things about this hotel is its staff who are very cordial, friendly, always smiling, especially Marco at the reception who was super helpful. The hotel is close to the water transport system, and you don't have to cross many bridges which is a huge plus if you have luggage. Definitely recommend this hotel!

Convienent to the Rialto bridge & water taxis / public transportation. Also 5 minute walk to St Marks Square. Good restaurants in the area. Loved the canal view in the Annex! Helpful staff. Good breakfast & excellent cappuccinos.

Very good location, easy to get to all main places of interest. Our room was lovely, beautifully decorated. The breakfast area was quite small but perfectly adequate choice of breakfast food and drinks. Staff were really friendly and helpful. I would say here again.
