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.

... some of the shops that lined it, got back on a vaporetto and toured more of the canal. At 6PM, I had prearranged a group bar hopping tour with Alessandro Schezzini. We met couples from Buffalo, DC, Baltimore, and Tennesee. Two hours, three bacari (wine bars), lots of house wines, and five delicious cicchetti (Venetian appetizers) later, we were happy to call it a night. We had been up now for 34 hours straight and we desperately needed to SLEEP. Good night, ...

By the time Video Girl and Battery Boy arrived at the restaurant they were quite frazzled by the heat and getting lost but this was soon forgotten after being poured a welcome drink of the 2002 Bisol Metodo Classico Pas Dose prosecco.

Should do wonders for the gastro-intestinal tract!! The trip today to Florence was on a high speed train which go up to 300km/hr. Blink and you’ve missed 5 km! One thing I have noticed over here is the number of young people who ...

We also took a gondola ride and saw the Rialto Bridge. The gondola ride was incredible and it was nice to tour the city and just enjoy time being on the water. Honestly, if I had to describe Venice in one word, it would be romantic. The whole city just feels stunning and freeing. It was nice to let go for a day, enjoy some gelato (ice cream will never be the same), and see Venice, a sight ...
... new. Anyone can say they want to go somewhere, or do something, but I challenge you all to be an “all-doer” instead of an “all-talker”. Don’t say you will do something when you’re older, or in a few years. You don’t know what tomorrow will hold and if you want to do something, do it today or you may regret it. Until my next adventure…
As the Italians would ...
