The hotel Bella Venezia is located at 12 km by car or 10 km by water-taxi from the Marco Polo international airport.
I chose "Bella Venezia" because of it's great location and, I thought that it would be just a place to stay while "surviving" Venice. This hotel however turned to be not only convenient but also very comfortable, very clean and, what surprised me most, offered a quiet room in spite of a very busy street
Excellent hotel. Very quaint. Staff helpful and pleasant. Visited when Venicd had more water coming from thd skies than in the canals but staff supplied umbrellas free of charge. Breakfast was lovely as was view from room it was served in! Will visit again. Cy
This hotel is very well located only a few minutes from the Rialto Bridge and Piazza San Marco. Convenient access to boats on Gran Canale e.g. to and from the airport or train station. In summary a very nice hotel!!
"Not so luxury"
We went to venice as a group, my partner and I stayed at the bella , another couple stayed at the 3* hotel right beside it. We paid more than double of what next door paid so let's go through what the extra star(and cost) in bella venezia gets you. First off location is brilliant ,it has a small lobby but at least there was one, The check-in lady was Okay....a pokerface no eye contact and just finish by handing over your key with a flash of fake smile, ok it was a bit fake but at least she tried.We were asked to waited for about 5 mins at lobby for a bellboy to bring us up, though we were fully capable to manage ourselves. The bellboy appears to be more friendly,a bit of chit chat in the rather coffin sized elevator. He was so friendly showing us the aircon, lights, phone etc, so friendly that he didnt want to leave, not until he got his tip at least. Room was much smaller than photo suggested,a double bed with just enough space to walk around ,it was nevertheless bigger than our friend's room nextdoor which is claustrophobic. Wifi reception was good,so good that my friend next uses our wifi instead,their hotel's wifi only works in their lobby which itself is just an alley with a few chairs, the speed wasnt great though. Toilet was clean, hot water was stable,TV remote doesnt work but it was all italian channels anyway.Im pleased that they have a USB wall socket.We were able to hear some corridor noise but not much room to room noise. Breakfast was at a busy pack room.Choice was satisfactory, pastries and cakes was good,fruits and cereals,hot foods are scramble egg(good),sausage or meatballs, bacon,not a lot if you go by british standard but was more than what our friends got.This hotel MAYBE a 4* in venice,but I certainly wouldnt think so anywhere else, just dont expect the same in venice for the same money.
Stayed a week in Venice to celebrate our 10th wedding Anniversary. Got a good deal through Trip Advisor for Hotel Bella Venezia and with the positive reviews I went with them. The front office, bellman and housekeeping were pleasant, the complimentary breakfast was very good, room was clean, bed was comfortable, water temperature adequate, loved the mini fridge and had a nice window view. Best of all was the location. It was conveniently situated between the Rialto Bridge and St. Mark's Square. A five minute walk to both and on a street with gift shops, restaurants, candy and Gelato stores. A supermarket was also near by. It was a quick walk everywhere else, which included our Venice tour group meet at the Garden near St. Mark's Square, our Gondola ride meet near the Gritti Palace Hotel, Accademia and Dorsoduro. There was construction on the Rialto bridge on the morning of July 27th and there was no ferry service at 6 am to the Ferrovia Train Station. My husband and I were left to walk in order to make our train to the airport. The streets were empty and the sunrise made the 20 minute walk very pleasant despite my stressed about time. Overall, we had a fantastic time. Venice lives up to it's reputation of romance! We would highly recommend staying at Bella Venezia to everyone!
