“Best Windows”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

The place and the location is perfect as other guests already mentioned, however don't count on the wireless network. I have been located in the last floor with a view to the clock tower and it was hardly possible to get a working wireless connection.
The mini fridge in my apartment was not cooling well and the beverages were rather warm than cold.
Otherwise I was happy with and satisfied with Best Windows.

Best Windows is in the clocktower building on Piazza San Marco, a spectacular location with great views. Nice, comfortable room. No lift so you must carry your luggage up the stairs. Superb views of the square and out over the Grand Canal. Noisy from the clock in the building and the square but highly recommended.

You could not pick a more perfect setting to gte a real feel for Venice. The wonderful windows open right out onto San Marcos Square and the view of the Bascilica is awesome. The rooms are large and very comfortable. Throwing iopen the windows and enjoying a glass of wine in our room was a real highlight. We were right in the middle of the best sights in the city. The service was very good, even though room service was not an option. It can get a little noisy if there is a special event. The weekend we were there the military demonstration started at 4am. It was a little annoying, but made better by the fact that we were able to watch the entire parade from our room in total comfort. I'd like to say don't miss this location, but I want to keep the room for myself when I return.

Extraordinary room in stunning location. We only stayed for one night but what a way to celebrate a special occasion. Drinking champagne late at night with windows open onto the square - very very special.
We were pleasantly surprised that there was no noise from the square once the windows were shut and the curtains drawn,
Things we wish we'd noted before we went there. No breakfast. If you call the other hotel from outside Best Windows, they'll send someone round with the key so you don't have to try and find it yourself

Room Tip: The room on the first floor next to the clock is fabulous

Our stay at the Best Windows hotel in Venice was fantastic. The location is without second, right at Piazza San Marco, next to the Basillica, and the comfort of the room was a match for the location and views. We also found the hotel staff outstanding, eagar to be of assistance with any travel needs.....directions, connections, places to eat, etc. We highly recommend staying here.......you won't be disappointed, and for sure you will leave with many wonderful memories.

Room Tip: We prefered our room at a higher floor.

What a great surprise! This hotel has the absolute best location in Venice, directly on St. Marks Square with a view and balcony right in front of the Opera house and Bell Tower. The room was very clean and beautiful and like living in a palace, but still very affordable. The staff was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel and can't wait to come back again.

I found this hotel and its beautiful views the highlight of our trip to Venice. Our room looked over the Opera House and plaza. A incredible Venitian glass chandelier and beamed ceiling brought all the things I loved about Venice right into our room. Scrimp other places but stay here! Even if it is just for one night. Restaurant is excellent but pricey.
