A budget-friendly one-star property located near Campo San Stefano, the Albergo San Samuele blends the boutique and antique. From the dramatically lit courtyard entry (with artwork) to the funky furnishings scattered throughout, this hotel’s got flair.
Pros: Friendly and homey. Fun style. Great value. Easy location.
Cons: No elevator.
The Albergo San Samuele’s 10 guest rooms showcase a style that’s both simple and chic, mixing period furniture with abstract prints, bold pink walls and original marble floors. But they're all basic when it comes to amenities: You get a fan and little else. No TV, no telephone, no air conditioning.
Two large family-style rooms on the top floor sleep up to five and are equipped with larger bathrooms.
Bathrooms range from tidy and tiled, to very simple (as in plain and white). All are clean and relatively modern. Super-Cheapo rooms share bathrooms, but those with private facilities are still a good bargain.
The Albergo San Samuele is run by the friendly Judith, who also owns the nearby Locanda Art Deco, another EuroCheapo pick. The San Samuele offers lower rates than its three-star brother, but still has style to spare, plus some pretty snazzy views.
A continental breakfast is offered in another hotel (the Hotel Salieri, also owned by the same proprietor) for €5. Wi-Fi is free throughout. Like most Venice hotels, the San Samuele does not have an elevator.

About the Albergo San Samuele neighborhood
Located to the east of the Grand Canal, the ultra-busy San Marco neighborhood is the city's commercial, tourist and religious core. The magnificent Piazza San Marco and Saint Mark's Basilica attract travelers (and hungry pigeons) like a magnet. Here, the Rialto Bridge is a beautiful, bustling mess, where boats unload, tourists amass and pricey boutiques abound. Nearby you'll find the Accademia Bridge, Campo San Stefano, the San Stefano church and lots of street performers, shops and restaurants.
