The best windows rooms have a truly amazing view of Piazza San Marco and the location could not be better. The room was nice, but the minibar was not stocked at all, there was no milk and only two bags of tea available in the room. Also, we had to ring twice for room service to come and clean our... More

I was worried about which room I would get. I got 701. The room in the picture. I was awesome. The two french doors left of the clock. I was so tired the first two night, I didnt even hear the bells chiming. Wonderful location. I would stay there again!!

One of the best hotels I've been in Venice. Do not book the room in this hotel if it doesn't have a view to San Marco Sqr. WIFI is free which is good but signal is not strong. If I'm going to visit Venice again definitely I will make sure that I have a reservation in this hotel with a... More

This is the only place to stay if you want the best view in Venice. Gorgeous room and decorated just as you would imagine a Venetian palace to be. So easy just to wander down to the square for breakfast or a coffee or dinner. Enjoyed just watching people from the window away from the crowds. Our room was just... More

The view from this hotel was great. But the air conditioning did not work and no hot water. The front desk assured the problems would be fixed, but it didnt happen. They said they could not find the manager so nothing could be done. At check out we didn't even receive an apology. There are other hotels in Venice with... More

We booked and paid for the Best Windows based on Trip Advisor reviews and photos. When we finally got from the airport to the room on a wet, windy day, we were met by the delightful Bellman from the Panada Hotel who helped us with our luggage and trained us on the keys. Our room was one floor up and... More

We stayed at Best Windows for 3 nights at the end of our first trip to Italy. You have to understand what you are booking here. For the right traveler, this is a great option. We loved being right in the middle of things, since we only had a short time to explore the city. The location is perfect if... More

Not all rooms are overlooking St. Mark's Square. We were allocated a room on the side, overlooking the side street, so hence no view of St. Mark's Square! Very disappointing and very expensive for what it was. The room was very tired looking and needed renovation. Also piles of cardboard, which we assume were for disposal, were outside our door....

Yes, the view is fantastic but I've stayed in nicer roadside motels. Cheap construction, not well planned out room design ( Our Queen sized bed was actually two twins pushed together, Classy! ), no amenities except for a couple of packages of Nescafe instant coffee, rude employees and you have to carry your luggage up flights of a narrow staircase....

Best Windows is not a hotel. It is not a B&B. Instead it offers you a room, a very large room (perhaps 2 or 3 times the size of a typical European hotel room) overlooking the Piazza San Marco, the very center of Venice. There is no breakfast, no front desk, no elevator, no slippers or bathrobe, and no umbrella... More
