Travelers should know that you must check in at the Hotel Bella Venezia around the corner and down the Calle dei Fabbri.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was in a great location. The staff was wonderful. The room was quaint but tiny!! Overall we loves it. Make sure you get directions before you go, it is very hard to find.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Know where you are going"
First off, we weren't told to go to another hotel to get the key and someone would take to the hotel. The street was only one-half block long and the locals did not seem to know where it was located. The room was tiny--we had to get out of each other's way just to walk around the bed which took up almost the entire room. The street noise was very loud, […] very late. The location was great, but that's about it. Wouldn't stay there again or recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
From the outside you wouldn't guess the high quality inside. The only problem was that no sign on the door or hint on the web page lets you know that check in is actually at the Bella Venezia around the corner. We found a locked door and it took some detective work to figure out where to go to gain access. Once inside, this is a newly renovated hotel, […] the rooms are excellent and breakfast is at the higher category mother hotel, Bella Venezia. Location is great, close to everything.

"Great location, Poor accomodation"
08/10/14 Jafer S
The location of this hotel is perfect being a very short walk to either San Marco Square or Rialto Bridge. This hotel (if you can call it that) is just a block of rooms with no lobby. In fact not knowing that it doesn't have any person at the door, we stood outside the sign and banged the door down to be let in. This followed ringing the bell next to the door for a good 15 mins without a response. Eventually a passer by told us that the check in is through another hotel about 50 meters away. So back we went into the main street looking for that hotel and managed to check in. The room was horribly small albeit quite clean. The sleeping experience wasn't too peaceful though as throughout the night there were noises coming from the room above. Conclusion: Best to avoid staying here.
"Ok good location "
06/30/14 Fleur A Taupo, New Zealand
We stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon ... We found it extremely hard to find and in the heat and with suitcases very frustrating. Didn't know we had to check in at other hotel. The porter was then helpful with the cases. The room when we got there was very small but we expected that in Europe esp Venice. Was rather old fashioned quaint room where the pluming was rather old and walls very thin. Breakfast was good at the other hotel. All in all fab location staff mostly friendly but very helpful and the room was spotlessly clean .

Great location but that 's it. It is neither a guesthouse nor a hotel. It is a damp smelling ,depressing building with rooms, no charm or reception. The man at the desk down the street who greeted us and made the first impression had filthy finger nails, a shirt with grubby cuffs and the hem hanging down . He insisted we paid for the room before we'd even seen it -treated more like a backpacker than a 50 year old professional traveller and was put out to say the least - and showed it- when we asked to see the room first. The bedspread was ripped ; the asst manager said that was "unimportant" and the damp smell he told me was the smell of Venice. The shower took 10 mins to warmup, poor water pressure . Worst part - the absent manager emailed me and cc'd Expedia suggesting I had confirmed I was perfectly happy in the place, although I had said nothing of the sort !! Would have been funny had it not been such a rip off. Please find somewhere else to stay.

Rather good localization, 5 mins from San Marco Piazza. Great place to live, good caffes and restaurants here. The hotel is clean and the room was large enough. No room service so you cant order any drinks or food but it is not a big problem. Would recommend to stay.
"Lovely Guest-house with Fabulous Location & Breakfast"
05/18/14 HighcroftManor Toronto, Canada
Stayed here for 3 nights in early May. First time in Venice and this place was perfect. Can't beat the location - half-way between Rialto Bridge and San Marco Square - each about 5-minute walk. We booked a "suite" - which meant a separate area with a couch, in addition to the area with the bed. The extra space was appreciated. Breakfast is served a block down the street at the main hotel, Bella Venizia, and it was stupendous. The room itself was clean and adequate, bed was comfortable, mini-bar was well stocked, Wifi was excellent in room, shower was very strong (although it tends to get water on the floor). Can't vouch for A/C, (which others have criticised) since it was too cold to use. Staff at main hotel was very helpful, and speaks many languages fluently. Street outside can be a bit noisy - but this is Venice, after all, with narrow streets that echo. I would recommend spending the 10 Euros for a porter to carry your bags to the canal - it is not far, but there are steps involved and it's worth the money.
"Fantastic location, bad maintenance"
04/10/14 Peter D Antwerp, Belgium
I travelled solo, requested and got a room with a kingsize bed for 3 nights. Be well informed in advance to check in at the Bella Venezia Hotel as La Scala has no front desk. Fantastic location to visit attractions, concerts, good restaurants and very close to public transport to the airport and to the other islands in the laguna. I enjoyed the breakfast and the free wifi in the room. But... the level of maintenance in the rooms is just horrible: AC not functional (April wasn't a problem, but what about the summer months?), I had to rescan the TV set, the lock of the safe was faulty, shower doors didn't close properly, the tap on the lavabo was swinging in all directions, towels were smelling like vinegar. The staff is very friendly and helpful, so there seems to be a problem with the management of these hotels... The problems weren't as such that they spoiled my stay. If the situation further deteriorates, these problems will become a major issue in the near future if the hotels can't get their act together.
"Perfect hotel for Biennale visit 2013"
11/12/13 Lottie1980 Edinburgh, United Kingdom
My friend and I booked this hotel on a whim and were so impressed that we both agreed we would recommend it. Incredible location - a hop skip and a jump from Rialto Bridge, and surrounded by great wee restaurants and shops. Friendly, helpful staff, clean room, excellent shower and comfy bed. Breakfast was served in the main hotel just a few doors down. It was perfect, with views of gondolas floating by. HIGHLY recommend.
"Very nice hotel"
10/14/13 GuateRider_650 Antigua, Guatemala
The hotel has a great location, between the Rialto bridge and the St.Mark's square. There are a lot of very good restaurants and shops around. I originally booked another hotel but they moved me to this one, which I thought it was a very good upgrade. I guess the same company has several hotels, at least three that I could tell. The breakfast buffet was served in another hotel, very close, and it was very good. We really enjoyed breakfast! The room is a bit small, but very cozy and very nicely decorated. The bathroom shower was also a bit small. But hey its Venice right?! We really enjoyed our stay in the hotel. There is good wifi and there is a safe in the room. There is AC in the room but didnt worked very well. You get a very nice sleep.
"Good location and good breakfast"
07/30/13 Mallo_Pahanen Helsinki, Finland
The hotel is ideally situated in location close to the Rialto Bridge and St. Mark's Square. From the airport can be reached by ferry Alilaguna 100m from the hotel. Nearby you will find clothing stores, souvenirs, restaurants and a grocery store. Room number 101 was really small. The room was pretty clean, except for a little stale, and the bathroom smelled all the time cigarets. The air conditioning was rather ineffective while a refrigerator was good-sized and effective. The bed was rather hard than soft and views from the windows were quite short. The hotel breakfast was next door, "the main hotel" Bella Venice. Breakfast was good, plentiful and varied. The hotel was quiet except for the corridor in incidental sounds.
"Nice quiet place in the center of Venice"
07/30/13 LTalNyc NYC
Price was great for the location. The room was small, but very cozy and quiet! We did not have a view, but it didn't matter, because as soon as you go outside you are surrounded by a million people and stores, and food and restaurants. So when you get back to the room, all you want is some quiet time. :) We loved Venice and overall had a wonderful time in this hotel. It is really hard to find if you are not familiar with the area, make sure you get directions from the airport, we got lost... Breakfast was good with really view of a small canal with gondolas coming through. Wifi did not work in the room, but works fine in the hotel lobby. The hotel is actually Bella Venezia, which is around the corner from this building...
