Nice guest house located in the heart of Venice. Very nice room. You must be aware of the fact that Venice wakes up early and the noises from the narrow alleys are straightly transported into your room. Staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. It was our first stay in Venice and in case of return we would book San Lio Tourist House again.

Our double room economy was about 5 qm + 1,5 qm for the bathroom. The double bed was French sized (about 1,40) and not at all appropriate for two persons. In all the room Bruna is at the best a single room. The receptionist knew that and apologized with a bottle of Prosecco and a sconto for our next stay - which will not take place!

This hotel was amazing! It is right in the middle of everything! Easy 5 minute walk to the Rialto bridge and about 10-15 minute walk to St. Marks Square. The rooms were very clean and very nice. We arrived in Venice after midnight and the hotel staff was happy to accomodate us. Word to the weary though- if you check in after 6pm you have to leave your luggage in a locked room and take a map to their other location to check in. It is about a 5 minute walk away. We found the whole process to be very easy and helpful, but if you are a nervous traveler be sure to arrive early. The price was great for being such a central location. We really felt like we got the "Venice Experience" without spending a lot. The bathrooms are tiny but new and the air conditioning was wonderful. I would not recommend the breakfast- not worth the cost, it's so much better to walk right next door and get a real expresso and croissant. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel! When we go back to Venice this is where we will stay!

This is a good location from which to explore Venice. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and the price is very good value for money, especially for Venice!

Some of the reviewers have stated that "this is what you get in Italy" - I absolutely disagree. With a little looking around, my sister and I were able to stay in some really nice places (some very average) for great prices. This hotel was old, dirty and the woman working was annoyed whenever she had to do anything: including taking our money at check-in! Service was bad, hotel guests were shady at best...you can surely do better. This was the only hotel out of 10 or so that we would not recommend. Umberto at front desk was great, but he was way overshadowed by the angry chambermaid who was too busy making personal 30-minute phone calls in guest rooms to allow us to check out. We actually had to ring the doorbell to the hotel in order to get her to hang up the phone and let us leave. Unfortunately this hotel was not up to the reviews nor their self-description. Go elsewhere, unless you're looking for "only one step up from a hostel".

As it was our first visit to Venice, we wanted somewhere central to stay. After the initial challenge of finding it (look for a green door on the right - between the steps and the square!), it was easy to locate after that, as we folowed the many signs to the Rialto. A great place to stay, clean and central, proprietor very helpful.

The location is excellent, very close to Ponte Rialto and easy to find from the statue in the square. I could have stayed in a hotel that was more inland, but was compelled find some place closer to where vaporettos are because I was flying out very early in the morning. San Lio was kept very clean and functional. I thought the property's exterior was rather charming. No lifts so travel light! No AC so we had to keep windows open part of the night to cool down the room. Perhaps they turn on AC during summers, I do not know. Right outside their doors is plenty of restaurants and good shopping. B&B area has narrow streets and alleys- it has to be nightmarish during peak season! Our bedroom was a decent sized double. My friend's though was quite a cramped double--barely space between bed and walls. Bathrooms were good size. San Marco Square is less than 10 min away from San Lio provided you don't get lost in the maze of streets :-) Staff was really helpful in terms of giving us assistance in arranging an inexpensive option for a 4:30am transport from the island to the Airport. Really took a great load off my back and my pocketbook! Next time I'm in Venice, I will book hotels across the Rialto (away from San Marco Square!). I ventured to that area and observed streets were wider and environs were much more peaceful than across the bridge. Across the Rialto, it felt more residential than commercial. Area is not a long way from San Marco, may be just an extra 5 minute walk.

Overall small but nice hotel, great location in immediate proximity to Campo San Lio and only a block from the Rialto Bridge. Some of the rooms were quite nice and spacious, while some where very cramped (I booked 4 double rooms). So you're rolling the dice. Not a bad stay at all for the price - I've stayed in worse for more.

It's great, really good location (look for the name on the door). Good service and supermarkets around (where you can buy your breakfeast). Unfortunately we had some drunk noisy neighbours for a couple of nights. The rooms are pretty small, bur has everything you need.
