One of the most conveniently located hotels in this neighborhood is the (5 stars), which is just off the western end of St. Mark's Square. The Luna is Venice's oldest inn, with a history that goes back to the time of the Crusades. Read our review of this intimate luxury hotel that attracts many repeat visitors from Europe and North America.
(5 stars) is close by; this member of the Westin group occupies five connected palazzi next to the Grand Canal. The impressionist painter Claude Monet spent an autumn painting canalside views at the Europa & Regina (then the Hotel Britannia) in 1908.
(4 stars) is just a short walk from the Alilaguna airport boat's pier. The hotel occupies a magnificent site where the Grand Canal feeds into St. Mark's Basin.
Moderate and budget hotels
Two personal favorites are within five minutes of the Piazza San Marco:
The (photo at left) is a block north of the Calle Larga XXII Marzo on a quiet street near the Kette (4 stars).
We've stayed in both hotels and can recommend either, although the San Moisè may be a better choice during the warm months because it has a courtyard with tables for guests. (See ourHotel San Moisè review.)
Other moderately-priced hotels west of the Piazza San Marco include the, Lisbona, , Bel Sito & Berlino, (which is featured in many guidebooks), , , , and--for operavores--La Fenice et des Artistes.
The slightly pricier (4 stars), the very popular (3 stars) and the highly-rated (1 star, photo at right) are also within walking distance of the Piazza.
