A budget-friendly one-star property located near Campo San Stefano, the Albergo San Samuele playfully blends the boutique and antique.
Pros: Friendly and homey. Fun style. Great value. Easy location.
Cons: No elevator. No TV or AC.
From the dramatically lit courtyard entry to the vintage furnishings scattered throughout, the Albergo San Samuele has some flair. The hotel is run by the friendly Judith, an artsy powerhouse who has infused her 10 guest rooms and the common areas with a fun style. She’s mixed period furniture with abstract prints, bold pink walls and original marble or parquet floors.
Aside from their decorative flourishes, room amenities are simple: There are no TVs and no air conditioning. However, they do have a fan, telephone, and free Wi-Fi.
Three super-Cheapo rooms share bathrooms in the hallway, although the seven with private facilities are still a good bargain (and some have cool mosaic tiling).
Things are relaxed and social in the San Samuele’s first-floor reception and lounge area, with tables, chairs, books, coffee and cool drinks. There’s a fridge and microwave for guests, and plates and silverware. The Albergo will even do a bag of laundry for you for €10.
Note that the San Samuele does not have an elevator.

About the Albergo San Samuele neighborhood
Located to the east of the Grand Canal, the San Marco neighborhood is the city's commercial, tourist and religious core. The magnificent Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Square) and Saint Mark's Basilica rightfully attract wandering tourists (and hungry pigeons) like a magnet. The area around the glorious Rialto Bridge on the north side of the district is a beautiful, bustling mess.
