First impressions are everything; Upon arrival at the hotel via water taxi, a man came out to help us with our bags, this was a great start. I have stayed at 4/5 star hotels and not even had this level of service. Check in was straight forward and quick, the man who helped with our bags then took them to the room for us. From memory we were in room 18, up the stairs and along the corridor. The room was very small but had everything we needed, perfectly clean in a traditional Venetian style including Murano glass lighting. It felt like the hotel had recently been renovated. A small TV with Italian sky, signal was not great but I didnt go to Venice to watch tv... Mini bar had water and beer and there was a small selection of snacks, the Bathroom felt a little dated but was more than fit for purpose and again, immaculately clean. Location was brilliant, 5 mins max from St Marks Sq. Breakfast was perfectly adequate and set us up for a long walking day ahead, cereals, pastries and scrambled eggs, bacon and frankfurter available. The breakfast room was accessed through a side gate and the courtyard, which was very sweet, although we never sat with a drink there. I really do not have a bad thing to say about Hotel San Moise, it was perfect for a city break and I would certainly stay again, although I may upgrade to a canal view/larger room. Forgot to add, aircon was freezing!!!

Great location, approx 3 mins to St Marks Square. Lovely hotel with a beautiful courtyard. We stayed in a classic double room. It was clean and comfortable with a nice bathroom. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. All in all a great hotel in the stunning city of Venice.

It's close to all the attractions and amenities. What can you ask more than to be close to the high street and not to be aware of this.when you get there try to visit /walk around the city, it's so nice and beautiful, it takes about 6 hours slow walk, just keep in mind the bridges.

We stayed here with our two kids and the room was just perfect for us. We paid a little more to have the room with a balcony overlooking the canal, and when the kids were tired it was the perfect spot to watch gondolas passing by. The interior courtyard is a lovely place to share a bottle of wine once the kids went down to sleep. It is minutes from St. Marks, but still quiet. The staff were very helpful, and the breakfast was good with many options despite this being quite a small hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

Pleasant and helpful staff. Generous breakfast. Right on a canal ... can arrive from the airport by boat if you want. In a terrific location, only a five minutes walk from st marks sq, in a fashionable area, but off on a quiet little side street. No traffic or noise.

The San Moise has many good points: attractive classical/renaissance style and fittings as befits a 1600s building; comprehensive and satisfying breakfast including some nicely cooked bacon; friendly staff; location – on a canal bank, 5 minutes from St Mark’s Square, round the corner over a canal bridge past the San Moise church, and with plenty of nice restaurants just around the corner Vino Vino worth a try.. Our room had tasteful decor appropriate to the style of the hotel, and was clean and well serviced. It was in an annexe, but the luggage was carried there by a pleasant porter. However it was almost cell like and overlooked a narrow and scruffy courtyard – not a room to linger in. We have booked through Easyjet before and always been most impressed with the size and quality of the room, so this was disappointing on the first score. Despite air-conditioning it was always clammy – I suspect the heat being thrown out by the old fashioned fridge in the wardrobe was a factor – even our clothes were warmed by it. Also, it took two days to get an English language TV service – one woman on reception did not know how to, and there was only a general handset guide in the room. There is no restaurant/bar, only the breakfast room – a pity as there was a nice main courtyard where in nice weather a drink would be pleasant. Access was not as simple as we thought when booking Easyjet’s shared taxi from the airport. With its own adjacent canal we wrongly assumed that we would be dropped at the door – not so, it was at the Marco Polo jetty on the Grand Canal with a tedious walk to a hotel that is relatively hidden down a back alley; the same for the return. Not quite “taxi” service! However, access to the iconic attractions was straight forward. Useful tip – get a “skip the Q” ticket from the official visitors’ office just off the square – you will avoid a long wait – one queue into the Basilica must have been 150m long! Also to escape the throngs walk along waterfront towards the public gardens.

We had a lovely experience at Hotel San Moise, helpful staff (Although when we checked in at night, the receptionist didn't know English much, it was hard to understand what he was saying) but very helpful otherwise :) Room was very big and clean, toilet was soo clean. Breakfast was soo delicious (American style buffet) and the kitchen staffs were so lovely always smiling and wishing you as you enter the room :) Everything is close by, St marks square was just around the corner :) Overall we enjoyed our stay, such a pleasant experience, missing breakfast now :(

We have just returned from Venice, staying 4 nights at this hotel. We had the cheapest room in the hotel and found it to be more than satisfactory. Staff were great, room clean, great atmosphere and located a couple of minutes away from St. Marks square in a smart part of central Venice. The décor of the room was very nice and unlike a previous reviewer I really liked the traditional style furniture. Other reviewers have mentioned that the bathroom is small, and indeed it was, but it was perfectly clean and comfortable to use with combined bath and shower facility. Towels, soap etc., were changed daily. Breakfast was buffet style and the provisions on offer were generous and of good quality. The hotel also has a garden which was clean and relaxing. I highly recommend this hotel and intend to use it again when we return to Venice.

This place sits enviably right next the fashion street with all the designers labels and few mins from the square. Hotel itself is slightly old but the rooms we had were big compared to what others got. And was cleaned everyday so it was good... staff were helpful too. So overall good experience.

We arrived by water taxi and although expensive this was probably the best way as the hotel is difficult to find. It is very central but in a bit of a maze of streets. Rooms are spacious and traditionally decorated. Breakfast was the only let down and this was pretty awful. Great value for money though and we were able to do a last minute booking.
