Fabulous location, very quiet at night, great breakfast supplied, all in all a very good place to stay in Venice. The only thing I can mark the place down on is that the bathroom was very small, but I was already aware of this from previous reviews. The bedroom was of adequate size and facilities were all good, inc wi-fi. We would certainly stay there again.

We are reluctant to give a review as we want to keep this gem of a hotel to ourselves - but that would be selfish - so here goes. This hotel is a wonderful place to stay in Venice. It is close to everything including great eateries, attractions and public transport. The Vaparetto stop - Giglio - is only 5 mins walk away. The hotel is clean, small, intimate and homely with a wonderful 'old worldly' atmosphere. The staff are friendly and very professional with all additional requests handled quickly and without fuss. We were lucky to have a good sized room (with Murano glass chandelier and antique furniture)overlooking the small canal (alongside the hotel) where we could hang out of the bedroom window and watch the gondolas go by. The bed was large and very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size with shower, basin, toilet and bidet. Breakfast was more than adequate with a selection of cereals, yoghurt, cold meat, cheese, hard boiled eggs, breads, pastries and fresh fruit. Coffee and hot milk were brought to the table by very obliging staff. You can sit inside, or if a table is available, outside overlooking a very nice square. A highly recommended hotel.

Loved, loved loved the hotel and location opening onto a square in sight of the grand canal, just across a small canal behind the hotel to La Fenice. Our window view was of the front of the lovely church. A 5 min walk to San Marco. Just charming. Bonus was an elevator, good for not having to carry luggage up stairs.

Very welcoming and lovely helpful staff. Good breakfast. Rooms variable. Nice and quiet but lots of church bells which were lovely and we could hear gondoliers singing! Strangely can't use irons or even borrow one as they don't work there apparently. Great location, far enough from crowds but still near enough to feel in the centre of things.

Bel Sito was not too bad but certainly on the lower end of the 3* I have stayed at. The room was OK but the carpeting, furnishings, etc, in the room and the hallways looked very worn. It certainly did not reflect what I saw in the pictures on the web. They offered free Wi-Fi but the signal was too low to use it in the room. The breakfast was very nice and the coffee quite good. They have a nice terrazza where we could sit outside for breakfast or just during the day and where they would serve drinks. I don't know that I would stay there again but only because there are better areas of Venice. I do need to add that one of the men at the desk was very friendly and helpful however one was very rude and condescending. Very unnecessary!!

The rooms were small, as is usual for Venice hotels, but they were very clean, and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was nice, with good selections. There were two men who worked the reception desk. One was very polite and helpful. The other was a snob and distainful of tourists - or maybe because we're Americans. We ignored his sarcasim but he still made his feelings known. We won't stay there again. There are plenty of hotels in Venice where guests are treated with the proper respect.

I loved the Hotel Bel Sito! The location was perfect, close to everything, but away from the crowds. It was an easy walk to get to from the vapporetto stop, without having to go over any bridges with luggage. My room was a bit small, but perfect for a single traveler. The A/C worked great and was a welcome relief from the HOT July heat. The breackfast was a good spread with cappucinos to order. It was nice to eat outdoors on the lovely patio. The view out my window from the 3rd floor was of the beautiful marble facades of the church across the small square. I will definately stay at the Hotel Bel Sito when I return to Venice.

Brilliant Location & easy to access for a first time traveller to Venice. Best to arrive by water taxi from the airport (despite the cost)as this is an experience in itself!) Staff are most helpfull. Breakfast of good quality & attentive service. Rooms tend to be on the small side, but typical of Italian hotels unless you are looking for 5/6 star. Ideal for the single traveller or a couple. Will definitely stay there again.

Lovely hotel, very picturesque, easy to find, conveniently close to Giglio vaporetto stop, San Marco, Fenice theatre and Rialto. The view from our two rooms on the third floor was completely gorgeous, all the equipment worked properly including air conditioning which came handy since it was over +30C outside. Very impressive breakfast+cappuccino/latte... what else could a traveller want?

We arrived late at the Hotel following a delayed flight and we were pleased that the night receptionist had a warm welcome for us. Our room was suitably placed near to the lift (I'm disabled and in a wheelchair). The room had it's own terrace and although we didn't have a view of the church or the canal we could still hear the echos of the Gondolas beyond the wall. We partook of breakfast outside whenever we could and we have to say that the breakfasts rank alongside the best we have ever had. The hotel is very conveniently situated not far from two main squares - St Marks is in one direction and San Stefano is in the other. The latter is very good for restaurants and Paolin, famous for their superb ice cream, is also there. Just a bit further down from the hotel is a hidden walk that will take you to La Fenice too. Through the entirety of our five day stay we were treated with the utmost kindness throughout and nothing was ever too much for the hotel staff. If we ever go to Venice again we would certainly stay at the Bel Sito again but having now been twice to this glorious city, and my disability getting worse, I fear that we may never be able to again. This is solely down to using a wheelchair and we realise now that Venice is not meant for wheelchairs :(

We got a good price on Venere. The location is excellent. It's close to the vaporetto stop with no bridget to cross with bags. 6 min to San Marco & 12 min to Rialto bridge. I loved the outdoor eating area, altho it could have been bigger. The breakfast was very good. Besides the meat, cheese, yogurt, pastries, cereal,juices, there was boiled eggs. The room was small, clean and had a great view of the church and piazza. The staff was very helpful when we had a lost passport. They made phone calls for us and directed us to the Carabiniari. Most spoke good English. I would stay here for sure if I return.

Aside from the amazing location, the hotel has many more qualities: cleanliness, politeness of staff, great breakfast. The only negative side, in case you're planning on staying more than a couple of days, is the small size of the rooms (at least of my room). The sound of church bells (fantastic church right in front of the hotel entrance) is a pleasant alarm clock!

We stayed 3 days in Venice so we didn't have too much time to waste on commuting between the hotel and the places to visit. The fact that the Bel Sito hotel is located close both to the piazza San Marco and a ferry station is very convenient. The employees at the reception desk speak correctly several foreign languages which makes life slightly easier. The kind of clientele seems to be broad (young couples, mature couples, families, several nationalities - french, italian, german, english and probably more).

Fantastic location, my room faced directly onto the facade of St Maria del Giglio. The hotel is about a two-minute walk from the Giglio vaporetti stop and five or six from St Mark's Square. The breakfasts were very good by Italian standards and for people like me who don't drink tea or coffee, it has a better selection of herbal and fruit teas than many four-star places in England. The twin room I stayed in was reasonably-sized by European city standards. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Price wasn't too bad considering that for hotel accommodation Venice is expensive.

I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and found the staff very welcoming, and the hotel ideally situated. It's proximity to St Mark's Square was key. The area immediately surrounding it is charming with its own "Campo". Our room, however, was a little small, but not unexpected for an older hotel in Venice.

This was without a doubt the worst hotel experience we have ever experienced. The receptionist guy was not friendly and wasted our time. For example, he requested that we provide the confirmation voucher, then asked for us to sign it, then pushed it back to us. Upon entering the room, it was so small, that it was unacceptable. When we asked for another room, he said no. No mention of a higher price, etc, just no. Fiteen minutes later, my wife took a shower and while in there, the water was backing up into the bathroom and flooded the room. I went downstairs and told them what had happened. The bellboy came up and inspected and agreed that it was unacceptable. Five minutes later, we wewre transferred to another room; a room that they said they did not have for us previously when we asked for another room. The following morning, the breakfast was feeble, to say the least. Needless to say, we checked out that morning and moved across the piazza to the Best Western which had nice helpful people and a great breakfast. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone!!

In June 2008 we stayed 5 nights at the hotel. We had been to Venice a number times before. Remembering that Venice is a unique and uniquely expensive city I would rate the hotel excellent value for money. There are some awful areas to stay in Venice, but this is not one of them. The Gilio area is fabulous, and so close to almost everything you would want to see.Two minutes walk from San Marco and the Accademia, a flat no bridge walk to the vaporetto, close to the Fenice etc. The rooms ate small but spotlessly clean, and the hotel staff are SO friendly and helpful I was honestly surprised. We were assisted with whatever we needed: directions, additional room supplies,ordering a water taxi etc. The room even had a bar fridg and airconditioning, other rarities. Breakfast was included in the price, and it was adequate, but not outstanding. Each morning our very attractive adult daughter would receive her excellent cappuccino with a heart and arrow design in the froth from her equally adult and equally very attractive Italian waiter. When we arrived and left we were assisted with our mountain of luggage, and the staff shook hands with us on departure. We would certainly stay at the Bel Sito again, and use Venere again. One last thing: our top floor room looked over the most beautiful church and the pretty square, which reinforced that we were indeed in a beautifuland special city.

This was a delightful stay. We had originally reserved a room farther out because we had a car rental, but decided to return the car and changed our reservation. We had no idea how this was going to turn out because we didn't get to read any reviews or anything. It was such a wonderful surprise! Loved the hotel, loved the staff, loved our room, loved the cappuccino, loved the location and it was easy to find and I was expecting to have to really hunt to find it. Will likely try to stay there when I return. Great value too. Insider tip- really easy walking distance to San Marco's Square and shopping. Lovely restaurants just around the corner.

this is my second visit (may 2008). Stayed in May 2007 also (not through Venere). Then the room was small and uninspiring, and the breakfast was a joke. Now (2008)the room was a good size, at the front and quite airy. The bathroom was very small. The room was a bit dated, but perfectly good value. The service has become much better and more professional at reception and in the breakfast areas. The breakfast is now perfectly acceptable, ...unlimited use of cereals, fruits, juices, coffees, breads, cakes , cheeses,...(maybe add some cold meats for complete perfection??) I travelled with the same friend for cultural recreational purposes and stayed for six nights. We both think the hotel has improved tremendously on all fronts!!. the location is perfect for Vaporetti, San Marco, Dorsoduro/Accademia and the Lido. The price is good by Venice standards. Will certainly stay again and would recommend strongly based on May 2008 experience.

This is our favourite hotel in Venice. After 30 years of coming to this floating palace - Bel Sito is the best of the best. Like many great hotels in Italy, the owner is always present and aware of what is going on (he is the silent partner hovering in the lobby or behind the front desk). The location if fantastic, a Vapareto (the local water bus) stop is 30' away. Like most of Venice you can get on, going east or west and find something wonderful to call your own memory. The hotel is across from a working church (we got to watch a spectacular wedding) and the local newstand carries the usual selection of English newspapers (on the other hand, who reads newspapers while on holiday?). Breakfast is a feast - start with Rice Crumpies (I have no idea...) and move onto the jam-filled pastries. Wash it all down with coffee the way it was supposed to be made (sorry Star$). The staff are friendly and willing to talk to you if you spend the time. I try to pry out of them the best local eateries (where they go and the menus aren't in English). We stayed in both a double and a single. The single was on the back (much more quiet) facing the canal (if you book a water taxi anywhere they will pick you up here!). The front double includes a view of the facade of the church, but is far enough from the walkways as to not be too noisy (hey if you come to Venice - with no cars/buses what's a few footsteps between friends?). You are 5 minutes from the big square (San Marco etc. etc.) and across the canal one of the more photographed churches (Santa Maria de la Salute). You can take a Tragetto (1/2 a Euro gets you a ride straight across the canal) or use your 1, 2 or 3 day pass for unlimited use of the vaparetto (buy this when you come into town and the clock starts ticking when you take your first trip - a great deal!). There is a covered deck in front of the hotel (only for guests). You can have a drink or just read a book and take in the vibes. If you are

The breakfast was not the usual buffet as was found at other hotels of similar star rating. You were given what could be considered the usual breakfast of a 2 star hotel , that being bread rolls and a crossant. No fruit or cereals or yoghurt. This was our only dissappointment with the hotel. All other service was excellent and the staff were very friendly. The room we had was excellent with a window looking out to the small piazza and church facade. Although the bathroom was very small compared to other hotel rooms of similar price range in other parts of Italy. Well located for easy access from the Giglio stop of vaporetto No1. Easy access to St Marks and the Rialto areas.

Hotel Bel Sito was a pleasant place to stay, made even better by the staff who were extremely helpful!!! The location was very good, away from some of the more crowded places but within walking (or easy boating!) distance of all the main sights. The triple room was a bit of a tight squeeze but there is enough to see and do in the area to keep you out and about most of the time anyway!!

Having stayed at the Bel Sito in 2003 I was pleased to be able to return this year, for the location it represents very good value for money, the staff are pleasant and helpful and the beds comfortable. Despite being at the front my room was quiet and the air conditioning effective. The main improvement I noticed since my last visit was the breakfast, the coffee being better than the usual Venetian hotel coffee(why do so many hotels in Venice serve such poor coffee?). Th Bel Sito is clean, comfortable and unpretentious-if you want thick carpets, gilding and marble it is not for you, if you require a good hotel in a central location at a very reasonable price then you should come here.

Visited third week of August 2007 staying 2 nights. Very nice hotel, good location and handy for the No 1 Water Taxi - Grand Canal. Breakfast is basic but was expected. Would return on our next visit to Venice. Good understanding of English by the staff.

Highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Venice: 5 min walk to San Marco Square, easy walk from Vaporetto stop, nice staff, spacious room, air conditioning that worked well, and an elevator. Price was very reasonable considering location and time of year -- July.

Location was our highest priority and this was well located within a short walk of St. Mark's Square and with it's own taxi stop (Giglio)at the end of the square 300 feet from the hotel. Lots of shopping around. While not a wide variety of food it had a very nicely presented breakfast that we still considered above average. Rooms and baths were small and building was older which I would expect is typical in Venice. Not directly on a canal which I did not consider a big negative.Front desk help varied with some gentlemen being more helpful than others. Venice is an expensive city.

The hotel was right beside the train station and a 5-10 min walk from the centre of Florence. Our room was very spacious with en ensuite bathroom. We also had a big enough balcony. The room was very clean. The hotle didnt have many facilites on site,however anything we asked for we were given. They were polite and very helpful. The location was excellent. The room was very comfortable.

The hotel,while a little tired, provided an excellent location for our stay. The staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms kept clean. This was our first visit to Venice and would reccomend this hotel to people who spend most of their time out and about. The Vaporetto stop,number 1, is just at the end of the street which makes life easy for luggage and moving around.

Bel Sito & Berlino had the best web page with directions to the hotel from two different water bus stops. We arrived about midnight and had no problem going directly to the hotel. Our Room 36 had a private patio that was really great! We could smell the fresh pastry being baked each morning when we awoke. The location about 1/2 way between the Rialto Bridge and St. Marks was super. Good breakfast and very friendly staff. We would recommend it to our friends.

What a lovely hotel just off a vaperetto stop. The rooms had unique heavy wood furnishing which made you feel like you were staying in a B&B versus a hotel. Great location about half way between San Marco Square and the Realto bridge. Hotel staff was helpful and the hotel itself was a real value for being in the heart of Venice.

We couldn't ask for a better location! Just a few minutes from all the major sites and a stone's throw from the vaporetto stop. It was very easy to find and faces a nice little piazza. The service was excellent. We would definitely recommend the Bel Sito to friends. Here is the website (it was difficult for us to find): www.hotelbelsito.info

The people at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The location was ideal ...just a 10 minute walk from San Marco ...however, the room was very small, the bathroom was tiny and run down, and the mattress was very old and soiled. With a few changes, it could be a wonderful hotel, but it appears management does not put much (any) money into upgrading or maintaining the hotel.

I had a very pleasant stay at the Bel Sito....the staff was very helpful and the room, tho' small, was blissfully quiet. One of my favorite experiences was bravely entering the dark, tiny street/alley at the Giglio vaporetto stop and emerging into the bright, lovely square where the hotel is located. Breakfast on the little patio was also lovely.

The main reason I chose this hotel was location--that part was very good--walking distance to St Marco Square, and convenient for vaporetto. Our room was quite small and dingy, and the window opened onto a courtyard, where there was loud conversation past midnight. The option was closing the window, but we like fresh air. The breakfast was poor, the same each of the four days we stayed--a basket with an assortment of cookies, cellophane-wrapped melba toast, a hard roll, a croissant, and packages of butter and jam. A waitress brought coffee, enough for one cup for each of us, no refills. I found the desk staff for the most part unfriendly and unhelpful, and was outraged at having to pay for a city map. I wouldn't stay here again.

Great location BUT the price for this hotel was too high considering the small, cramped room provided. The breakfast was minimal and did not include the usual ham and cheese and fruit we found everywhere else in Italy. The staff was a bit aloof and cold, not displaying the usual Italian friendliness and hospitality. I would not stay there again because of these shortfalls and the relatively high cost, even for Venice.

Upon arriving at this hotel I was ushered to my room with minimum information being offered. What time was breakfast? What if I needed to call reception? No information of this persuasion was volunteered and initially I wasn't given the chance to ask. My impression of the desk staff was that while some are helpful others are indifferent to the point of arrogance. My room was situated in a noisy part of the hotel where the nocturnal movements of other guests ensured that I was routinely woken from my slumber. As to the bathroom it was utilitarian but Lilliputian in size. I also found the bed to be like lead with accompanying granite-like pillows. The room that I stayed in had no fridge or mini-bar even though web pages indicate that there is one in every room. Good aspects include breakfast being available until 10.00am and the surrounding area is fantastic with everything of import in close proximity to the hotel. You won't find luxury at this hotel but it isn't overly expensive considering its location. I would also urge future guests to be scrupulous when checking their bill. I realized too late that I had been charged for a telephone call that I'd not made.
