This hotel was excellent! It is about a 5 minute walk from the Rialto Bridge so it was not very difficult to get to (though there were some stairs on a bridge that was a bit of a hassle with our giant luggage). When we arrived, we checked in with someone in the restaurant downstairs and they immediately brought us... More

Dionysos himself guided our footsteps to this amazing restaurant. Me and my fiancée were looking for a restaurant offering a typical Italian culinary experience, and we found the Taverna San Lio by chance. They serve Italian gastronomy and fine cuisine at its best, at a very attractive price given the quality of your meal. Their cold cuts are a no... More

My husband and I stayed for four nights. We were delightfully surprised with how centrally located the guesthouse is & we were very happy with our room. The downstairs restaurant is modern & very well-kept & the staff was very pleasant. Choosing this place made our trip to Venice even better.

For our 3-day visit to Venice we chose this small B&B which is centrally located 5 mins walk from the famed Rialso Bridge and about a 15 mins walk to Piazza St. Marco. San Lio is a quiet location above a nice restaurant owned by the hotel which fronts a pedestrian thoroughfare. We really liked this location because you are... More

Located close to the Rialto bridge and a 10 minute walk to San Marco square. The rooms are big, clean and comfortable. A great home base to explore Venice. The rooms are on the second floor but the walk up the stairs is not bad, you don't even notice them, unless there is some physical impediment. The Tavern itself is... More

Taverna San Lio is a simple BB is located conventiently near the Rialto Bridge. The directions they provide are excellent and despite the many twists and turns, we found it without issue. The rooms are one flight up from the restaurant, with a small landing to access the rooms. Our room faced the back of the building and was thus... More

Located within 5 minutes walk from Rialto bridge, in the middle of a colorful shopping area. There are four rooms, located above the tavern itself. On the down side, they have no elevator, so it might be problematic for people with disability. On the up side, the room is spacey, lovely designed, and the breakfast includes delicious local pastry. I've... More

Located a short distance from the Rialto bridge, staying in the rooms above Taverna San Lio was a great choice for a simple stay in Venice. The room was clean and surprisingly spaceous given the size of Venice. Check in is with the restaurant downstairs and the staff was always helpful and accommodating. Don't expect too much from the free... More

We stayed out of season and were the only guests in this establishment of four rooms. The rooms are accessed externally from the restaurant via an adjacent outside door .
