Convenient when:

Hotel PaganelliYou want a hotel facing St. Mark's Basin, but your budget runs more to prosecco than to vintage Champagne.

The Hotel Paganelli's main building is just a few minutes from the Piazza San Marco, the Basilica, and the Doge's Palace on foot. The waterbus piers of San Zaccaria and Pietà are in front of the hotel.

Hotel Paganelli roof terrace viewThe Paganelli also has an annex in the Campo San Zaccaria, a pretty little square that's even closer to the Piazza San Marco but lacks waterfront views. Guests in both locations have access to the main building's roof terrace, and free Wi-Fi is available in all public areas and guest rooms.
