Venice - the city of gondolas, love and pigeons!

A travel blog entry by mrandmrssiddins

... we got to Venice we went to catch a water taxi to our motel. The driver who looked dodgy said it was going to be 50 euro!! We told him to stick it and we decided to walk to 1.5km to our hotel. Little did we know that 750m of that 1.5km was up and down stairs! We were completely stuffed once we got the the hotel with our 30kg bags. I am thinking they should do a Crossfit WOD around carrying weights up and down stairs and call it 'Venice'. It would definitely be ...

Which way to the beach?

... it into something beautiful. The glass was all very expensive, but one can dream!

We walked up and down the shops looking at glass. I'm not sure what about our dress made the salesmen think that we were BIG Buyers. Must have been Adam's 30 year old Teva's and dirty tshirt that sold them! Shop after shop would invite us (but not other shoppers) into their expensive and exclusive sections in hopes that we were there to make a ...

Exploring Venice by foot and boat

... were increasing and so were the very expensive designer shops. There are so many shops selling the famous Venetian masks and Murano glass.

The square is huge and near the centre is the church in a byzantine design with 5 cupolas.

... had a bunch of different meats and was really good. Then we went halves in a pretty damn tastey lasagne and alright tasting gnocchi. For finishing we had a pizza which was good, Clover isn't a fan of the pizzas over here because there bases aren't thick enough, unlike pizzas in Australia.The next day we went out with a destination in mind, we knew the direction it was in and we had a basic map, so we just walked around and took different i guess you could call them roads, we ...

Adventure on the High Seas

... tourist info office, and the lady there told me about a tibacchi that sold the bus ticket I need and gave me a timetable for the bus. I had just enough time, so I walked 6 blocks or so to the tibacchi and it was closed. A lady in the restaurant nextdoor gave me instructions (in Italian) to get to a tibacchi that sold the ticket. If I hadn't learned some important Italian words in the last few days, I wouldn't have made it back to Udine. At this point I had ...

    Great location for an aging hotel. View from our room of the Grand Canal and the Ponti degli Scalzi bridge. A few steps from the railroad terminal and do-able walking distance from the Rialto and St. Marks. Free internet. All together quite satisfactory.

    My husband and I stayed here the first few nights of our honeymoon. It's a great location since it's just outside of the train steps, faces the grand canal and near water taxis. The room is small, as are most typical European hotels, but it was lovely. We would definitely stay again!

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Boscolo Hotel Bellini Venice

    Worst place to rest your Head


    This place was terriable. The staff was the worst. Our bed was made up everyday but that was about it. We had to call down for such items as toliet paper and the room was beyond small. I would only say that it was very close to the train station but then that ment that it was never quiet. We would wake the whole night because of the noise coming from the street. I would never stay there again and am not sure what the other people saw there that would make them.



    The only good thing about this hotel was the fact that we only had to be there for 1 night. What a disappointment it was! Our room was not what I would refer to as clean and sanitary, although it wasn't the worst I have seen. Keep it mind, however this is advertised as a 4-star hotel. The most dreadful aspect of the room was the bed. I have slept on many uncomfortable beds in Europe, but this one takes the cake by far. Sharp springs along with an incredible slouching effect that almost brought the bottom of the mattress to hit the floor.



    Arrived here with a complimentary drink and snack, after being delayed from the Italian air traffic control strike! Everything was with a smile, and nothing was too much for any of the staff. With some of the reviews on here after we had booked for my husbands birthday, was a little worried, but it was exceptional! The rooms were of a fantastic size, good bathroom, the only disappointment was of the breakfast, but u were never far from any snack shops.....

    Out the door to the Vaporetto


    Arriving in Venice can be complicated, but staying at the Bellini allows you to take the Vaporetto 1 stop from Piazale Roma to the Train Station and the hotel is right there. The convenient Vaporetto locations allows for easy trips to Murano, Rialto, etc. We also found that the better, less tourist-trap restaurants are in this area of Venice. The hotel is older & has typical Venetian decor. The bathrooms were nicely updated and the rooms were tidy and much larger for venetian standards. We felt that the young people working in the hotel were not very familiar with Venice and unable to give good recommendations. This is a 4*, not a 5* and the service feels that way.

    Excellent Four Star Hotel


    I was nervous. Having stayed in hotels throughout Europe I know well that hotel's are not always as advertised. The Bellini Hotel was exactly what I hoped for. It is a classic four star Venice hotel. The rooms were tastefully decorated with period furnitue and were kept in great, clean condition. All have well-done new bathrooms, TV with satellite reception, air conditioning, and a mini bar. The staff was friendly and quite helpful. This hotel is part of the Boscolo chain, a very image conscious chain of European Hotels. You will not be disappointed by this hotel. Ignore negative reviews because they are simply inaccurate. Stay here without fear. Feel free to contact me for more info.

    Bellini - Bellisima!!!


    My girlfriend and I stayed here during the week of the 13th an dfound it to be beautiful and charming. Fabulous location, particularly if you are travelling by train (about 100 yards to the left of the station).

    The vaporetti are right there too. The staff is very helpful and gave great recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing. Breakfast was excellent - as close to an American buffet as you'll find. We will definitely stay there again when we return to Venice.

    Long weekend


    Visited the Bellini 27th - 29th September 2003 with good expectations.

    Outstanding 4 star value in Venice


    The Boscolo Hotel Bellini in Venice is an outstanding find and can be a value. I searched for hotels in May 2003 and found only Lido hotels at 160 euros... or more. 3 and 4 star properties on the main islands cost much more. I selected this hotel through Expedia special rates and paid USD440 for 3 nts total cost. It is right at the Ferrovia stop and thus convenient to all waterbus lines. On top of its location and price, the hotel is absolutely outstanding from its lobby staff to its full breakfast to its rooms. Our room was typically small but furnished and decorated very, very well. The bathroom was great and the windows were double paned and effectively kept the room quiet. The hotel is one stop from Pl Roma and a quick short walk from the train station. The location is superb in Cannaregio. We think we got a very good deal and the outstanding quality of the hotel made our stay absolutely great! As a ref, I did 125 room nights in 2002 and stayed in 2 to 5 star hotels. I'm not impressed easily.

    Second Honeymoon


    We stayed here for our anniversary trip to Venice and I can't praise it highly enough. Handy for everywhere, the room was superb and staff very friendly. Go!

    Loved It


    You cannot beat this hotel for location, standard and service. The rooms are fantastic, you are right on a vaparetto stop (for 5 routes!) and there are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. I would highly recommend the Bellini for an excellent stay in Venice. Absolutely charming.
