Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Bartolomeo Venice
My husband and I spent 3 nights, May 8, 9, 10 at the Hotel Bartolomeo in Venice. The staff was friendly and helpful and the location near Rialto Bridge was convenient and easy to find. We took the water taxi #82 from the Termini station and got off at the Rialto station. Once we got off, we asked a few locals and were able to find the hotel, no problems. The hotel actually has two buildings; the main one that you arrive at and they've also secured another building (Annex building), which is where we stayed. The rooms were newly renovated and quite nice. There was no real advantage of canal view. The building is so low that you literally see people on the bridge standing and talking away. If only I spoke Italian I could probably even carry a conversation with them J The breakfast was quite good and although the croissants were packaged they were yummy - had a marmalade filling, writing this review now I'm craving it.
I would recommend this hotel to anybody.
Good, clean hotel with an excellent location
We stayed at the Bartolomeo for 3 nights (Apr 21-24) and found it to be very good value for money, booked through an online website, no problems.
The reception staff were friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and a fair size. Breakfast was adequate to fill you up until lunchtime.
Location couldn't have been better, practically next to the Rialto, a short walk to a supermarket and various eateries. For a first visit to venice it was perfect. The stairs were a killer though, as we were on the fourth floor in room 36.
Overall, we would definitely stay here again on a return trip toVenice. We came with no expectations at all and were very impressed with the hotel, pleased that we'd made a good choice!
We spent four nights in the Bartolomeo Hotel, in room #24.
The hotel is hidden in a typical Venetian alleyway only a short distance (100 m) from Rialto bridge and the vaporetto stop. The hotel appears to comprise several adjacent buildings joined together internally and recently refurbished.
The reception desk was manned 24/7 and the staff spoke excellent English (and French, German etc.) and were very helpful.
There is no lift (elevator) in the hotel so access to the higher floors may be a problem if you are less than moderately fit. Breakfast is served in a somewhat cramped area on the second floor and was adequate but not exceptional (coffee/tea/chocolate + selection of buns/pre-packed croissants, no fruit juice).
Our room was quite large and was newly refurbished. The bed was comfortable and the room was kept spotlessly clean. A new and large a/c unit was in evidence. There was no view to speak of from the windows of our room.
Overall it represented a good value for the price and we would recommend it.
My husband and I spent 3 nights, Oct. 2,3,4, at the Hotel Bartolomeo in Venice. Although the staff was friendly and helpful and the location near Rialto was convenient and easy to find, we would not stay here again. The bed was way too soft for our tastes. The water pressure on floor 3 1/2 was very low. The walls were thin. The shower had only a curtain and no lip so that water got all over the floor of the bathroom and even into the bedroom. There was no elevator. Finally, the room was warm and stuffy because we had to keep the window closed due to the mosquitos that were eating me alive.
A 5 night stay near the Rialto Bridge Venice
I stayed at the Bartolmeo Hotel right near the Rialto Bridge from 1st to 5th March this year.I got the booking for the Hotel & the flight on-line. It was an excellent small clean & friendly Hotel.The two guys on reception both spoke very good English & helped in every way they could. I was alone but felt very safe & comfortable there. Basic but clean & very convenient position. It was only 40 euros a night but costs vary according to time of the year & how busy they are.To contact:***********.name is Sheila smith. Enneo & Gabriel on recept will remember me.

To console ourselves over our lost luggage we immediately headed to a great bar Narazaria by the Canal for cocktails and crowd watching. The selfie stick is conquering the world.........please shoot me if I ever use one. There are literally scores of tourists floating around Venice with their selfie stick recording their every step and Gondola ride.

What happens if you have intensely ticklish feet? And a store with x-rated chandeliers! Nope, I'm serious.

We then walked around to the boat ready to head back to the station and have a little look in Venice before our train left at 4. We ended up catching thre wrong boat and had to get off at a smaller jetty to wait for another boat. the 10 mins ...
