Recent guest reviews

I got there earlier than expected and the receptionist was so warm and welcoming but most importantly so professional. I really felt like coming into a real traditional classy hotel, and it was. Always so very helpful towards me and all guest. Got lost a lot in Venice so they always came to rescue. The hotel is more like vintage like anything else in this beautiful country and even their teapots are in real silver! Very rare to see and find nowadays. My room was a single room overlooking a beautiful church so beautiful it was. Very clean and professional they were each day with cleaning the rooms as well. Couple of minutes walking to Saint Marks square and all the fine shops and seconds to gondolas, water and number 1 water bus that you need from the station to get right to the hotel. Breakfast was always on time and the best I've had so far on my journey. Loved my stay here I will for sure be back. ( and I am extremely picky about where I stay) Thank you everyone for your warm welcome! Ciao

Good location, one staff member was very helpful. Room was nice, as well as the hotel; good services.

Everything was amazing and wonderful! Great location! The breakfast was delicious, with a wide variety and always fresh. The staff were extremely kind and helpful. The hotel and room decor provided an excellent, unique and authentic experience. We were very impressed with everything!! Only 2 things to improve: have more pillows - there were only the two which made resting in bed less comfortable. Secondly, the shower drained water slowly and thus water would often go all over the bathroom floor. Looked to be usual, as we were able to change the pressure of the water and remained manageable.

Really lovely. Enjoyed our stay very much. Room small as expected but nice and clean. Bed was super comfortable. Big breakfast selection including large honeycomb! Internet was great at first but then a few glitches - can happen anywhere.

My wife and I thought this place was a great choice. We were just 5 minutes from St. Marks and were able to visit many times. The neighborhood is filled with shops and restaurants. We used Venice as the starting and ending point for a cruise so the Alilaguna stop just 100 meters from the hotel was a great asset. And we used the water buses often that also leave from the same dock. The hotel shares its sqaure with a beautiful church. We stayed in room 342, one a several that had rooftop patios overlooking their courtyard. The room was small but comfortable, clean and very quiet. The bathroom had been updated and had all the amenities. The breakfast was very nice, varied somewhat every day and was held in a very nice Venetian room. And make sure you check out Rick Steves' Venice guidebook for a hint on how to completely avoid the lines at St. Marks Basilica. That alone is worth the price of the guide.

The hotel was fine, the staff pleasant, it was clean and well located. What I did not expect was to receive half a room and a single bed because I was traveling alone. I didn't pay half the cost of a room and felt I should receive equal space, and at least a full size bed. Management assured me this was their policy, I suggested this be made clearer on their website. None of their photographs show this little room. I was sorely disappointed and although I travel to Venice often, I won't stay there again.

Not bad, but you could find better. Quick tip take the vaporetto to griglo stop.

Our hotel was close to St. Mark's Square,Doge's Palace..we walked a lot,lost track of how many bridges we crossed.Glad we stayed at Bel Sito,the staff was very courteous and pleasant.Very helpful too in giving us info about transportation to the airport as this was our first time in Venice.Breakfast is plentiful with fresh-baked croissants.Room 236 had a balcony where you could sit out and relax...very nice.

[...].breakfast was ok, be ready to walk, you going to that a lot

The hotel is beautiful, nicely appointed, and in a great location (just down a narrow alley from the San Giglio water bus stop). The breakfasts are wonderful and quite ample, and the staff are all lovely and most helpful. Our only complaint was that our room, located just off the central staircase, was quite noisy as a result of the considerable morning guest and housekeeper traffic. We would definitely recommend requesting a room further away from this busy area.

This was our first trip to Venice. The location of the hotel was great, very close to all the attactions and transportion. The staff were very helpfull and friendly. The rooms are small by U.S. standards, but normal for Europe. We were on the back so not much of a view. Breakfest was nice and the service was wonderfull. They help me prepare a tray to take to the room for breakfest in bed. We would come back. Good value for your money.

We stayed in the top room (room 53 in the hotel) a triple. Our daughter (age 5) had her own little room (about the size of a long wide closet) that was one of her favorite rooms during our Europe trip(except for an upstairs loft in Beyeux France). The room had a view of the church across the square. the bathroom was kind of different,(just be careful not to fall off.) The hotel was in a good location, not far from the square. If you stay there, I would recommend taking a water bus to the Giglio stop and getting off there with you luggage. You can just walk down the alley after the stop and the hotel will be to your far right. This way you dont have to drag your luggage up and down over the bridges at the canals. I wouldn't rate this hotel 5 star, but based on location and character I would say 4 star is a good rating. I stayed their in Novemeber, so I dont know how hot it gets in the summer.

Very helpful staff. Rooms are nicely decorated and clean (a little small but typical for most European hotels). Free Internet access (but only one computer). Location is great -- less than a 5-min walk to Piazza San Marco.
