About these Venice hotel pages:
We've included customized Google maps that you can zoom, rotate, or drag for better views.
If you see a conflict between our directions and a hotel's, rely on ours. (Hotel sites are often years out of date.) Ditto for maps: Our icons are hand-placed for accuracy, while GPS-based labels can be off by a street or more.

is a simple one-star hotel facing the Cannaregio Canal. It isn't fancy, but it's
worth considering if you like the location, are on a tight budget, and
understand the limitations of a budget hotel. (The Marte's equally basic sister hotel, the
Biasin, is just across the Ponte delle Guglie bridge, and guests from the Marte
are sometimes sent there when the Marte is full.)
How to reach Hotel Marte from the Alilaguna Orange
Line airport-boat stop at Guglie:
As you leave the boat stop, turn right.
Walk along the fondamenta or sidewalk, past the Gam
Gam restaurant, to the Ponte delle Guglie bridge.
Cross the bridge.
On the other side of the Guglie bridge, turn right. The
Hotel Marte will be on your left, only a few meters from the bridge.
From Santa Lucia Railroad Station:
(Tip: Drag the map up and to the right for a better view of the
route from the train station.)
Leave the railroad station by the marble steps outside the main doors, or by the easy-to-miss
(and conveniently stair-free)
side exit if you have rolling luggage, a stroller, or a wheelchair.
When you reach the wide fondamenta or pavement in
front of the station, turn left.
Walk past the Scalzi Church and the Scalzi Bridge toward the
Lista di Spagna (a busy pedestrian thoroughfare).
Continue down the Lista di Spagna, through the Campo San
Geremia (you'll see a large domed church on your right), and on to the Ponte
delle Guglie Bridge.
Do not cross the bridge. Turn left, and you'll find
the Hotel Marte alongside the canal just above the bridge.
