Reviewed 14 May 2014

My sister and I stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is in a good location halfway between the Rialto and St Marks Square. If arriving by water taxi at the Rialto organising the porter service to meet you is worth the €20. No dragging suitcases up and down the stairs, they know all the hotels. Removes the stress. The rooms are not overly big but adequate. The bathroom had plenty of hot water and pressure. Breakfast is typically European. Overall a great place, great atmosphere with pleasant and helpful reception staff.

Room Tip: Rooms not facing the square.The barrows go past in the early morning to the sipermarket

Stayed 3 nights for a 60th birthday treat. We booked through booking.com and were given a welcome upgrade. The hotel is perfectly located, clean, busy, the staff very helpful and breakfast plentiful and covering all options. Although the hotel appeared full and has a central location it was quiet. Our room was a good size family room with a modern bathroom although showering made the floor wet. It is genuinely a 10 minutes walk to everything and the Concierge's pater about a 10 Venetian minute walk to all points sounds a little hackneyed it is absolutely true.

I'd stayed in this hotel during April with my aife & a 1 year old baby. If you are arriving to venice by train then take the taxi(7 euro per person) to rialto bridge & from there it is just a 10mins walk you could ask anybody the direction to the hotel & they would tell you which shows that the hotel is quite well known.
We arrived at the hotel at 12am & to our pleasant surprise we were immediately checked in by their friendly staffs, bearing in mind that Italy strongly follows the 2pm check in rule. We were accompanied to our room by a friendly bell boy. the room i must say is very romantically made & like the hotel claims very venzian style room with chandeliers & the decor going well with the room.
The room was quite good compared to the room i've seen in europe. the hotel location is excellent too, right in the centre,,10mins walk to rialto bridge on 1 side & 10mins walk to the san marco square on the other side a lot of shops, restaurants that you can viist, like they say you should get lost in venice. the break fast is also quite good, overall this hotel is an excellent place to reside if you are in venice for 1-2 days.

We received a warm welcome on arrival. We were expecting to stay in the main hotel but were escorted to our room in an annex building next door. We were then informed that we would have to pay an additional city tax of 4 euros each per night (I think this is true of all hotels in Venice).

The room was a little on the small side but well appointed and enough for our needs (2 people for 4 nights). The mini bar was well stocked and well priced. Air conditioning was fitted but only activated for the summer months. We stayed during the first week of April when it was around 19oc. We had to sleep with the windows open which had two major drawbacks........

1) insect bites - 23 in 4 nights to be precise!!!
2) noise from passers-by throughout the night - even with ear plugs!!

The location of the hotel was it's main attraction. It's only a five minute walk from the Rialto bridge where we got off the Vaperetto (water bus) and a five minute walk in the other direction to St Marks basilica/ doge's palace. There is also a small supermarket, a bar and two restaurants in the square (Campo Santa Marina).

We would stay at this hotel again but we would like a room in the main hotel and we would need air conditioning.........please!!!!

We stayed on bed/breakfast basis - the breakfast was very good.....selection of cold meat, cheese, pastries, cakes, croissants, cereals and coffee/juices.

A free street map was kindly given to us at reception but I would not rely on this as it does not have enought detail. We bought a 'pocket guide' from Amazon which included a very useful and detailed map. We also took a small compass with us....it's useful to know which way you are facing when navigating the maze of Venice.

We loved Venice and can't wait to return ++++++++++++++++++++++++

Extremely friendly staff and a great location, 5 minute walk to either the Rialto bridge and in the other direction to San Marco. Plenty of lovely restaurants nearby. Also a free water bus transfer is provided by the hotel to the island of Murano and a free tour at a glass blowing factory. Would go back in a flash, Venice is truly beautiful

My boyfriend & I stayed one night at the Santa Marina Hotel for around $121 USD. The staff was extremely friendly & helpful. The room & bathroom was very clean, but extremely small. It was fine for us for one night, but ask for a larger room if you plan to stay a few days. The bathroom was so small, we had to squeeze sideways past the sink to get into the shower & we are not large people. The shower was so small, I could not put my arms out elbow to elbow to wash my hair. They do have larger rooms but for one night, we didn't care to go thru the hassle to change rooms. The hotel is situated on a square centrally located between the Rialto Bridge & St. Mark's Square, but it was nice & quiet & the breakfast was excellent. We would stay here again & just make sure to ask for a larger room.

Room Tip: Ask for a larger room. Rooms are small in Europe & this place is tiny!

Me, my brother & mother stayed here in room nr 619 (1 double+1 single bed, with a door between the rooms), which we really recommend. We surprised our mother with the trip for her 60´th birthday-and she was amazed by the classy hotel Santa Marina! The interior was soo "Venice", old touch, lovely furnitures & fabrics on the walls. We had the luck to get a room facing a small characteristic canal. (Very Venice!`) Every 5 th minute a lovely gondola passed the balcony, where we enjoyed our wine. The location was easy to find(if you can read a normal map;) 7 min walk from Rialtobridge (we arrived with boat). Easy to find San Marco by walking. Outside the hotel there is a small square with a nice café & supermarket. The staff was friendly and informative. We realized when we arrived that they offered a free trip to Murano with guide! (with a classy boat leaving at the backside of the hotel).
The breakfast buffé had everything you need. We all agreed on: Yes, we would stay here again! //From Sweden with love!

Room Tip: 619! "Very Venice" (we stayed 3 persons in this room. A door seperated the double and sing...
