Quite a quirky hotel, our room had padded material for wall paper. This is because it is so old traditional decorating cannot be used. If you are on the large size the shower cubicle is very small, and you may not be able to use it. The room was small, but then it is a small building, there was just enough room for us. The fridge was in the wardrobe, however it I don't know were else they could have put it. We stayed on the 1st floor, I wouldn't have wanted to be on the 2nd floor as there isn't a lift, and I have never seen steeper stairs. Very central to everything you would want to visit, shops and restaurants. The staff were very helpful, and I would stay here again.
This hotel is at a walking distance from the Pier, St Mark's square and other important places. But the best thing is that its very close to the shopping areas, bistros and other conveniences for tourists. Though we were a bit take aback by the size of the room, it felt cramped for space. A/c worked reasonably well and the wi fi was good. Rooms were clean but cramped. Breakfast was in a very small area. Its run by very friendly people, especially Francessca who was very graceful and helpful in every way. A perfect hostess. One could say that this is only a functional place, as with most hotels in Venice, where one spends most of the day outdoors.
Small vintage place' run by a bunch of really friendly and helpful people' the hotel is basic the rooms small but clean and the bed comfortable' the breakfast offer hits the spot' coffee is great' not a place for your fancy high demanding traveller but perfect little spot for family groups thanks much for a good time
This was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in ...booked through Travel Counsellors...it did not come cheap either. Although it was clean and the staff were ok the hotel left much to be desired. The room was so small we had to leave a suitcase outside. There was no lift and very steep stairs to the rooms and no one to help carry the luggage. There was no outside space or bar....tiny wardrobe with 4 hangars....skirting boards broken/missing. ....grubby shower curtain....couldn't turn round in ensuite.. The exterior of the hotel was grubby as was the view from the room.
The hotel is in a perfect location, the hotel itself was very dated, though clean. No en suite bathroom in any rooms although when I made the booking it said we would have one. Other than that it was a good place to stay.
We went on Cruise from Venice (via Jetline). There was a one night stay in Venice included in the package. From the airport we travelled by water taxi with two other couples on same package. The other couples where taken direct to fantastic looking hotels. We had to walk from Pier to find the Bridge Hotel. It's small and basic. I would have slept well if it wasn't for people walking in alleyway beneath our room. It went on untill 2am. At morning we went down for breakfast but all six tables were taken. We were told availability was done by telephone to our room. Had to return to await the call - which wasn't long. Breakfast was OK.
We spent two lovely days in Venice staying at this little hotel near the Rialto bridge and St Marks square. Luckily we were on the second floor in a small but comfortable clean room with a decent small but modern bathroom. The third floor involves a hike up lots of stairs and no lift. And some of the rooms have a shared bathroom. Our bedroom had two windows overlooking the busy narrow street and could certainly be a bit noisy at times especially early morning. But somehow this didn't matter at all , and after all we were in the middle of beautiful Venice amongst the ancient streets. The Bridge was quirky and apparently was an old monastery in the olden days . The owners were friendly and helpful and served a basic but adequate continental breakfast in the mornings. We're really glad we stayed here and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
A great location in Venice, near to bars, restaurants and stores; but the best is that is just a few meters from San Marks square. The hotel is very clean and has the city spirit in its decoration and details.
Nice people. Breakfast as expected. Located on a good spot in Venice to have a walk in the evening and enjoy the atmosphere. Overall nothing to complain about this hotel. Good value for the money overall.
Having read some of the reviews on this site I did wonder what we would find. I need not have worried, what we found was a delightfully quirky hotel. It isn't a faceless corporate hotel but it's clean and safe. The hotel used to be a convent in the dim and distant past which has cleverly been converted to a hotel. We had room 3 which is a double at the front of the hotel the constraints of the building meant that the room was quite snug. However, it was clean and secure with a mini bar whose prices were lower than many of the local restaurants/ shops. The people manning reception were unfailingly helpful and very friendly. Breakfast was continental with a good selection of products and freshly brewed coffee. The hotels website offers a good set of directions to help you find them because as other people have said Venice can be confusing but using the information they provided we found them quite easily. Would not hesitate to return to this hotel should I return to Venice. Thank you.
