Less than a five-minute walk from central Piazza San Marco
Located in the San Marco neighborhood, Hotel Saturnia has a coveted address -- within walking distance of the famous Piazza San Marco.
San Marco is one of the most popular neighborhoods to stay in (due to it's convenient location and attractive streets) so it's also one of the most expensive. But guests can wander the streets and find delicious hole-in-the-wall restaurants that cater to locals and offer reasonable prices (and often the best food).
The highlight of the historic Hotel Saturnia is its location on a busy shopping street in San Marco, just a short walk from the Piazza San Marco and important sights such as the Rialto Bridge. And the rooms are attractive -- with charming historic details such as wood beamed ceilings and mahogany headboards -- although there are some variations (particularly in the quality of the bathrooms) even between rooms of the same category. Though the hotel lacks a spa, fitness center, and pool, it still offers more amenities than many other Venice hotels, offering a top-notch restaurant, a rooftop terrace (complete with an outdoor shower), and free passes to a nearby gym.
