Hotel Santa Marina Venice Italy is a luxurious, four star hotel just 300 meters from Rialto bridge, within a former convent building.
As a 39 room accommodation, Santa Marina Hotel is a combination of old Venetian charm and modern comforts, from marble floor guest rooms and suites and Murano glass decorations.

The hotel is very conveniently located, close to the Rialto vaporetto (water bus) stop, and also just a 10 minute walk from the main tourist attraction in Venice, Saint Mark’s Square.
Santa Marina’s building is a former convent, a historical structure centrally located within the Santa Marina square, at a pleasant and calm section of the city.
Today, the hotel occupies, in fact, two buildings in the neighborhood between the Rialto Bridge and the Church of Saints John and Paul.
Interiors of the building are as impressive as are the building’s history, a dedication to elegance, with dark wood panel walls, red and white marble floorings, and details in Murano glass.
As a guest, your days at the hotel start with a buffet breakfast, served, on the warmer months (between April and September), within the hotel’s terrace that overlooks Santa Marina Square.
The hotel is located on three floors, all served by a convenient elevator.
Most luxurious rooms at the hotel are the Junior Suites and superior rooms, featuring parquet flooring, walnut furniture, and tapestries of Venetian craftmanship, all fitted with whirlpool baths.
As a theme, the hotel has been furnished using traditional 18th century Venetian style, and surrounded by the fitting romantic atmosphere of Rialto and San Marco districts.
The hotel has paid attention to details in the hotel rooms, including the available amenities: all rooms have satellite TVs, telephones, and air conditioning (from May to September).
You can choose a room from several available room types – Classic, Superior and Junior Suite – which differ in terms of square footage and number of guests allowed.
Some of the Classic rooms, all decorated in typical Venetian style, offer views to the Santa Marina Square, while others provide views to the internal courtyard.
Superior rooms, meanwhile, are charming with either wooden floors or wall-to-wall carpeting, distinguished by color, size and furnishings, all either in Venetian style or with elegant walnut wainscoting.
Finally, Junior Suite rooms are designed for the most romantic hotel vacations in mind, decorated in the same style as the superior rooms are, but with a sitting room to relax. Some of the Junior Suites have a canal view, to the canal of Santa Marina.
