I absolutely loved this hotel. Yes, it is a hair difficult to find, but most places in Venice are a tad difficult to find off the main walkways.

This hotel is excellent for what it is: a clean and relatively inexpensive hotel. If you are looking for some super posh hotel then this really isn't the hotel for you.

This is a rather sparten hotel (though what decorations they do have are nice), that is clean, friendly, and comfortable for a solo traveler.

The location near the Rialto Bridge is fantastic. The windows that open up into the alley are very cool.

I would recommend this to any solo traveler or couple knowing they will be "out" more than "in" and will crash as soon as they get back to the room.

My husband and I arrived late at night by train, after learning it we would be over 60 euro to take a water taxi we decided to walk. It is quite far from the train station and confusing to find because it is hard to see street signs. When we did arrive we were taken to our room in the annex building a block away from main hotel. The room was beautiful and large. We loved our room. It was good location to walk around venice and get a feel for the city. Not too far to st. marcos square and the grand canal. Very enjoyable stay, definitely recommend staying here.

Hotel Bernardi was a pretty good value for Venice. It's on a quiet street a little ways back from a main busy one. Not too far from the train station and major sites. The rooms were basic but clean. Wifi worked well. Only complaint was the walls were thin and sound came thru the walls. The people were nice and helpful.

Stayed here for 2 nights and was very happy with this hotel. It's just off the main street, about 15-20 minutes walk from the train station but also very close to the nearby water bus stop.
We had a room in the annexe (not the main building) and it was quite new, clean and pretty big for a European city. Considering the prices of other hotels in the area, I was looking for a catch as to why this was so reasonable but I couldn't find one- just good value!
Also the restaurant just across from the main hotel entrance is very good.

Stayed: October 2012, traveled as a couple

I stayed in this hotel with a friend for 3 nights and we had a nice experience overall. The staff is very friendly however they did not know how to recommend any good places to eat which was a little frustrating since they are locals. It's a little difficult to find because it's hidden but it's not impossible either. It's not a luxury hotel but it's nicely decorated and everything was super clean which we absolutely loved! Only bad thing was that it was very noisy, you could literally hear everything. It's relatively close to everything, just a 10 minute walk from where the main attraction area is.

Room Tip: pick the top floor, I'm guessing it'll be less noisy.

Dear Guest,
thank you for the time you dedicated to our hotel and thank you too for your positive words.
We are sorry about the noise, we are located in a very calm area,but Venice, as you know, is very old, and build in wood, it is very difficult to create full insonorisation, but we weill try our best to improuve it.
About the staff we always try our best to give our opinion about pubs and restaurants, we do care aboout sugesting places.
