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.

Arrived in Venice by train, next mode of transport to hotel was via water taxi. The price of water taxi was 60euro for a ten minute ride. Damm near fell of boat when we found out price. Another city with rabbit warren tendencies - as well as streets there are now bridges and canals. Smallest hotel room to date, but due to street noise got an …
This is our last "moving day" and we have a lot of ground to cover - like about 210 miles or so. Our original plan for the day was to drive back to Florence to return the rental car and then board our pre-reserved train from Florence to Venice. But negotiating the traffic and narrow streets of Florence, along with the hassle of transferring ourselves and what feels like twice as much luggage as we started with, has us looking for other ...
... driving, but I think we did rather well with the car and driving on the 'wrong’ side of the car/road.
And the GPS on my phone was an awesome tour guide, and saved us many a time from getting 100% lost. But my trusty device failed us in Venice, when I entered in the hotel name it took us on a 1.5km walk across the island in 30 degree heat with all our luggage, only for us to talk to the concierge of another hotel when ...
... the nearby restaurants. The Gondola ride was nice, although very short; we didn't finish our wine, so we went back to the restaurant and asked if we could finish it there and have dinner. We had an awesome dinner overlooking the Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge. We even took more wine back to the hotel.
Back at the hotel, we enjoyed the view of the Grand Canal from our suite - saying goodbye to Venice. ...
