Hotel Da Bruno
Travel Blogs from Venice
Just took a stroll this morning around the Rialto area - no purpose except to get out of the hotel.
I could make a photography book on canals of Venice. Every one is different and I don't get tired of seeing them and the many different bridges that cross them.
Wish I needed clothes and shoes as I could happily go on a spending …
I thought Venice was a compact city until I started my walk to the Jewish Ghetto in the Cannaregio district. Boy was it a long walk, but well worth it once I got there. The Campo Ghetto Nuovo (in the heart of the Jewish Ghetto) is a lovely Square with a very powerful monument to the holocaust.
I knew there were 5 synagogues in the Ghetto …
There were two things I wanted to buy in Venice - Murano jewellery and a Venetian mask. I've the bought the jewellery and today I wanted to buy the mask - not any sort of mask but the one the doctors wore when visiting plague victims. These had a long beak-like nose that the doctors stuffed with herbs thinking this would protect them from catching …
I walked from the hotel to where the boat (River Countess) was docked to join the new passengers on a walking tour of Venice: the historic Castillo district, Rialto Bridge, St Mark's Square and a guided visit of the Doge's Palace. I'm getting the hang of this Venetian map - actually managing to get from A to B without getting lost.
Disembarked the River Countess today. While I had to vacate my cabin by 8.30am, the Cruise Director made it clear that I could stay on board for as long as I liked and even have lunch before disembarking. I was in no rush as I still could not decide how I was going to get myself to the hotel - water bus (vaporetto) or water taxis. Eyewitness …

If you want a room no bigger than a broom closet, then this is the hotel for you. However, it's location is great and central to all areas of Venice. The two star rating is for location only.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Da Bruno Venice
I stayed there for 7 nights while traveling with a study abroad program. Not only were they friendly towards us at every occasion, but they also had great rooms with plenty of hot water. Definatly would stay there again.
This was our first trip to Venice. We just visited this hotel in October and stayed for two nights...we wish we could've stayed longer! It was so quaint and the staff were very friendly. The rooms were beautiful and clean. The location was fabulous, in close walking distance to St. Marks Square and near plenty of shops and restaurants. We took the water taxi or "vaporetto" to the Rialto stop and did get lost a bit when having to walk the streets to get to the hotel...but once we found it we were really pleased. Be aware that there is no elevator in this hotel, so you have to carry your luggage up the stairs to your room, but it wasn't a problem for us. This hotel was one of our favorites when we visited Italy.
This hotel was clean, neat, and safe -- and inexpensive (for Venice). The staff were kind and helpful. We stayed here on our last night because we had an early train and didn't want to worry about getting lost on our way to the station. Five minute walk and we're on the train. The Dolomiti was perfect for that function.
Five flights up and no elevator. Room was appointed with something a little nicer than dorm furniture. Clean bathroom. Looked to be recently remodelled.
Lacking the charm of venice, but again... cheap. Anyway, charm is experienced while out-and-about, not sleeping.
Good Hotel Great Location Helpful Staff
The Hotel Bruno is a friendly, clean and well kept hotel serving good cappuccino for breakfast. Very centrally located in the Rialto area, lots of shopping and walking distance from San Marco Square. Warm and comfortable with a fabulous Gelato place next store. I would definitely stay here again.
A charming small hotel in a perfect location with a very pleasant and helpful staff. We travel to Europe every year and always stay in hotels of similar price with excellent locations. This was one of the best.
I'd rather sleep at the train station!
I have never been treated worse in my entire life by the manager. He yelled at me for a good 5 minutes for changing our plans, which he agreed to earlier in writing, then wouldn't even give me the decency to let me explain what happened, which was a train strike.
Efficient and friendly staff. Clean and charming rooms. Great central location an easy walk to everything. Try the da Bruno restaurant around the corner - Elio and Vittorio were absolutely wonderful, excellent food at a reasonable price.
Had a wonderful experience
We stayed there along with my parents in March 2003and I look at my pictures everyday. I loved the closeness to St. Marc Square, the Grand Canal, resturants. The room was very nice. The breakfast was outstanding. My Husband loved the gelato shop next door. The gentleman at the desk couldn't have been more helpful. I can't wait to return.
The only thing I wish was that my stay was longer.
