Great location, average facilities
Posted Jul 18, 2016
Hotel San Marco is directly off the Piazza San Marco over a small bridge. The location could not be more central for the cost. The staff are polite and well informed and the hotel was busy. The room was small but kept clean daily by charming house-keepers. Everything worked such as the TV, shower, lamps, air conditioning etc.
My main bug bear was the breakfasts. The rolls and pastries were on the stale side and the coffee was from a vending machine which was disappointing in Italy, the home of coffee. There was a limited choice of food and no fresh orange juice! We had breakfast the first morning and then went elsewhere. The breakfast was included in the cost, though bottle water was not and there were no tea or coffee facilities in the room as promised on the hotel description. When we booked there was a list of possible extra charges and fees which made it confusing. All in all I cannot be too hard on the hotel as it is a three star and it was pleasant, though the breakfast fayre was too disappointing to ignore.
