The rooms are street facing and were extremely noisy. The owners have a restaurant downstairs and we heard loud talking and people on the streets all night. The room is spacious and breakfast is the worst I've had in Italy. Stale cake and warm bread and nothing else. For the price you pay, all you get back is worth peanuts.... More

Very very good. Both the pizza and the meat we ordered were the best we ate during our stay in Venice. It's a bit tricky to find these small tavernas when you walk around, but often much better than the usual touristic restaurants. Don't miss it!

Stayed 1 night on our 23 day backpacking trip through Europe and everything at this quaint b&b was perfect for an affordable short stay. Nice large bedroom/bathroom and the restaurant downstairs is worth a stop as well. Thanks for hospitality! Ciao!

We stayed at the Taverna San Lio at the end of June for three nights. The main consideration for choosing the hotels was it's central location, and proximity to the main sights - we were not to be disappointed. Although we booked via Hotels.com, we received some really good communication direct from the hotel, with clear instructions, such as advice... More

We stayed in the 'green room' for 2 nights. The room was very spacious, well decorated, and the bathroom was immaculate and looked brand new. The AC and Wifi worked well. There is a safe and a locking wardrobe, plus 3 keys just to get into the room so it was very secure. We were shown up by the woman... More

We stayed at Taverna San Lio for 2 nights. It was easy to get to by Vaparetto from the airport and the lovely Veronica provided great service to us both as guests of the hotel and diners in the down stairs restaurant. It was less than 5 min walk to the main sites and while the street that the taverna... More

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
