Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great location, within walking distance of the Piazza San Marco, numerous museums, and restaurants
  • Rustic-luxe rooms feature wood-beamed ceilings and flat-screen TVs
  • Top-notch restaurant
  • Freebies include a breakfast buffet and passes to a nearby gym (about a 10-minute walk from the hotel)
  • Some rooms have attractive modern bathrooms and balconies

Cons

  • No on-site spa, pool, or fitness center (although passes to a nearby gym are available)
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

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.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

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).

  • About a 30 to 40-minute water taxi ride to the Venice Marco Polo Airport
  • 4-minute walk to Piazza San Marco
  • 7-minute walk to Palazzo Ducale (Doge's Palace)
  • 8-minute walk to the Gallerie dell'Accademia museum
  • 10-minute walk to the Rialto Bridge, the oldest bridge in Venice
  • 16-minute walk to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection
