Glorious city, weather & a must see destination.
Hotel staff welcoming & knowledgeable, Hotel website directions advise water taxi or the water bus, be advised that the water bus is far cheaper & we utilised this & all was on time & easy to use.
Be prepared to look around as prices can vary greatly from shop to shop & obviously you pay a premium for all restaurants in Saint Marks square, we chose to eat in other locations some being just a couple of streets away & thought all reasonably priced & great quality meals.
The Hotel Papadopoli exceeded all expectations. Fabulous location, close to bus, train and cruise port, and yet just a 20-40 minute stroll to Rialto or St. Mark's. Easy access to water taxis or water buses, if that is what you prefer over walking. Our room was spacious, full, modern bathroom, and a small cozy balcony overlooking a busy little square and a canal. Yet our room was still quiet and peaceful! Breakfast buffet (included with my Expedia deal) was abundant. All staff was friendly and helpful!
You step straight from the airport taxi into the front door of this wonderful hotel to be greeted with a glass of Prosecco. What a great introduction to Venice. The staff a friendly and helpful, the breakfasts are varied and generous with a cooked option and the rooms are modern if not large. Highly recommended.

This hotel is just perfect, specially for the single traveler. Travel for the single person in Italy is almost prohibitive with extra costs added, but not so here. A great room with shower and a Murino chandelier. On the 'wrong' side of the canal away from the tourists, the hotel sits right on the water with a deck to enjoy a coffee and watch the life of Venice going past. A great breakfast in the second floor dining room with, if you take your turn to sit out there, a balcony to have an extra coffee. Explore the alleyways behind the hotel to discover the real Venice and enjoy an evening meal with the locals. Friends staying near Saint Mark's Square paid four times as much and didn't have half as much fun as I did.
Very easy to walk to from San Stae even with heavy suitcases but the - very expensive - water taxis drop you off at the landing stage of the hotel which is a great way to 'make an entrance!
