      Near Ca' d'Oro it was a good location although a bit of a walk to St. Mark's Square. Our room in the annex had a bathroom outside the room but we didn't have to share it with anyone so it worked great for us. This seems to be a terrific value compared to other places in Venice. Also a really good breakfast and helpful staff.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Bernardi Semenzato Venice

      Lovely holiday & lovely hotel


      We travelled to Venice in September 2003 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. All we wanted was somewhere clean and comfortable from our hotel......and that's what we got at Hotel Bernardi! Leo (the owner) and the friendly Ukranian abstract artist (who also worked in reception in his spare time!) whose name we never found out, were very friendly and courteous during our stay. The main suggestion we would make about our stay, is that the directions provided by the Hotel for when we first arrived leave a lot to be desired! However, the locals are very friendly and we found a passer by who walked with us until we found the hotel (although many do not speak English that well - we are lucky, we speak Italian!). We were in the annex and the rooms there are clean and tidy, well decorated but sparse i.e. no TV or radio but that was fine with us. The rooms looked recently decorated and there were clean, large towels and a hair dryer so that was great. It can be a bit noisy in the annex depending on who your neighbours are, because the hallway is large and echoes; you can also hear the boats clanging as you are near a canal (as you should be in Venice!) so be aware of that if you need total quiet to sleep. However, the location was great (just over 5 mins walk to Rialto Bridge) and the local facilities were fine (especially if you like to live the local life - Cannareggio is where the people LIVE in Venice!). Overall, we would recommend this hotel and would go back again!

      Excellent Service/Nice location/Good Price


      We came to Venice after a few days of visiting various cities in Italy and was not sure if our accommodations was going to be nice since we booked it only through the internet. We were pleasantly surprised with Hotel Bernardi when we got there - big, clean room, air-conditioning, delicious breakfast, courteous staff not to mention the lady owner who was very helpful yet very professional.

      Great for families


      I second the previous review that this hotel is great for families. Our group of 6 had a family suite consisting of double room, huge quad room, and large modern bathroom. Best of all (besides the great prices), the quad room looked out on a beautiful, quiet canal. Ask for this suite, located in the hotel annex.

      Great rooms for families


      My family of four just returned from a stay at the Bernardi and it was very nice and affordable. We had two connecting rooms in the annex that shared a bath. The bedrooms were quite large, had very quiet A/C, marble floors and comfortable beds. We really appreciated the neighborhood -- quiet and very non-touristy.

      Positive Experience


      The price was right for Venice rates, the hotel IS very clean and the staff very helpful and courteous. You will find you are a little far from St. Mark's Square, but Venice is made for walking and taking in the views. I have read wonderful posts about the Annex and we did ask for a room in the annex but did not get it, so I cannot tell you anything about that. Our room was very quiet, a big plus; it was a hassle to carry all our luggage to the third floor :( Overall, a good value for your dissapointingly low US dollar.

      Problems reserving


      I had a terrible experience with the hotel's customer service both in the face of the owner Leonardo and a female receptionist.I wrote an email asking for availability on a particular night and was pleasantly surprised to receive a response from Leonardo right away that a triple room is available at 98 euros, the price I had seen posted on the Internet. But when I called to confirm the reservation and give them my credit card details, the receptionist started giving me higher rates, then handed me to Leonardo who denied that he had ever written me an email the day before and refused altogether to make me a reservation.

      Great little hideaway


      We stayed in this little gem for two nights. It was clean, comfortable, and affordable. It is located on a tiny side street away from the noise of central Venice, but close to the Rialto, shopping, and vaporetto stop.The staff was friendly & helpful, the rooms well tended, and the breakfast filling & tasty. The tiny restaurant/pub across the way was terrific for a quick snack or appetizer plate. The other restaurant (Mia something) a few doors down had wonderful food, brisk wait staff, locals & tourists, and a tasty house wine.

      Best value in venice??


      i was pretty sceptical when i started looking for cheap accommodation in venice, because there just didn't seem to be any.. with the best bargains being around the mestre area (around the train station), which isn't really where we wanted to be. eventually, came across hotel bernardi in an excellent central location, 60 / night for 2 people. the hotel is clean, safe, welcoming, quiet and well fusnished. perfect for our stay in venice (we had 3 nights there), i'd definitely recommend it!



      Tucked away from the throngs, but still in the heart of the old city, my girlfriend and I found Hotel Bernardi to be excellent. With reasonable prices and friendly service I cannot recommend this cosy little hidey-hole enough. If you go to Venice, and like me don't want to break the bank, but also want to stay in the old city Hotel Bernardi is perfect. Buenisimo!

      Great Hotel


      The hotel is in alley, I thought I will disappointed with this hotel but turn out to be great small hotel. My room is on 3rd floor very clean with high ceiling. Bathrooms is good size and clean. Hotel is not far from water taxi and shopping area.

      Hopped off the train and entered the wave of tourists. Walked for almost 1km with our bags to Hotel Benardi. It was so GOOD to enter our room, which was elaborate, very venetian and had a canopy bed over looking the water.

      Popped another champagne cork over the window, oops. honeymooners allowed.

      ... March. Boy was I wrong, as the vaporetti I was hoping to get on filled up and we had to wait a half hour for the next one. The funny thing that happened though., right after that vaporetti left, a private small boat pulled up to the dock - like a taxi and offered rides to people to Venice for 10 euros a head. A good 20 people took him up on it, and you know he's made his day's wages right then and there. Not sure if it's legal, yet if the buses only run ...
