Reviewed May 20, 2014

Centrally located in Venice, this hotel is just across a small plaza from the church Santa Maria de Giglio. Access to it from the water bus was down this long two-person wide alley. The hotel is quaint but elegant. Just loved all the Murano glass chandeliers. Our room was a nice size, not cramped. Loved having a full bathtub - that was a real plus! Decor was nice, bed comfortable and it was great having an elevator, especially when moving luggage. Staff was always very friendly. Breakfast was great! Lots of options, including fresh scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage and home baked pastries (you can smell them being cooked in the evenings...mmmmm) along with all the usual offerings that most Europeans seem to prefer. Only downside was the fact that the coffee is instant not fresh brewed.

My wife and I have just returned stayed from Venice having stayed 4 nights at the Hotel Bel Sito and Berlino.

I booked our holiday via British Airways and this hotel was recommended by them which I chose based on location and is about 10 minutes walk to Mark's Square.

The staff I found throughout our visit to be very polite. Yes the rooms are basic and that was after we had upgraded to a superior room. I liaised with the hotel directly via email several times and they were quick to respond. We had a view of the church and although the hotel is in a good location we found it to be very quiet. I feel 3 stars for this hotel is just right. The hotel was very clean and the one thing I did miss from the room was coffee making facilities as the restaurant didn't open until 8am. If I did return to Venice I certainly wouldn't rule out staying at this hotel again as the location made up for a standard hotel - which as we knew it was 3 stars we were expecting anyway.

We were so excited to arrive in Venice after a business trip. Upon checking into the Bel Sito hotel we were immediately disappointed in the room accommodations. The room wasn't anything like what was described in the pictures on their website. The bed was very old and uncomfortable with a mattress that had impressions from age. The hotel boasted views of the canal, but the hotel is about 300 yards away from the grand canal with no view of the canal at all. The air conditioning was inoperable, the staff was rude with the exception on two individuals and the price was over the top for what we received. As we explored Venice, we made friends with some of the shop owners. They also stated that the hotel was substandard and they wouldn't recommend it to anyone they knew.

Save yourself the time and money and book a hotel elsewhere. The Hotel Bel Sito isn't somewhere I would ever recommend.

Room Tip: Don't stay here

We stayed in this hotel at the very beginning of our trip to Italy. Our travel agent had advised us not to expect huge rooms in Venice but I'd still call our room small. Nonetheless, it was very comfortable. It is very close to St. Marks square and the S.Maria Del Giglio waterbus stop. The staff I have to say was extremely friendly and suggested nice restaurants for us based on our needs. Also worth mentioning, their breakfast was really nice specially their cannoli's. Throughout our stay in Italy, we did not have cannoli's like that anywhere!! Overall a wonderful stay in a wonderful place in an amazing city!!

Room Tip: No balconies and no views but do ask for a room with a view of the church.

We spent two nights in this hotel and had a fantastic time. Easy to find (by Vaporeto, leave at Giglio station and it's a 2 minutes walk to the first square...can't miss), very near to St Mark square and other atractions but yet very quiet. Also to mention that the breakfast was great (diversified and quality) and the staff very helpfull. The only "not so good" is the bed, a little bit hard, but still we had a good sleep. Next time in Venice will for sure repeat this hotel.

The hotel is in a quiet and lovely square just in front of a beautiful church, a couple of minutes from the St. Marks sq. The staff was helpful and the rooms were cosy. The selection of foods at the breakfast was quite poor.

Book online before you go, its cheaper, the return Alilaguna Water Taxi Arancio (orange) route from Marco Polo airport, you enter the Grand Canal and continue to the last stop S.Maria Del Giglio stunning views all the way, its then a 3 minute walk to this lovely hotel. Staff always very helpful and friendly, even printed our boarding passes for our return, no charge. Stayed 3 nights as part of a BA deal, our room 232 on the second floor was very charming, the bathroom with shower all spotless, clean sheets and towels every day, we even had a fridge perfect for keeping the wine and water cool! We overlooked the small courtyard, scaffolding on the adjacent building did not effect us. From the hotel its a 5-10 minute walk over bridges past the designer shops and you are in St Marks Square. As already mentioned by other guests the breakfasts excellent. We will definitely stay here again the location is perfect.
