Excellent location- just step outside into the heart of Venice. Huge breakfast spread.
However our room was up 3 flights of stairs, Ok for us because we are young but not for my 67 year old dad! Staff speak excellent French and good English BUT
When we asked in French " où nous pouvons manger une bonne glace?" She sent us to Murano to see the "glass!(lol) which was a bit far for a nice icecream.

Never in my life we had found a nicer hotel. Venice hotels are usually old, smelly and with very tiny rooms.
We booked to stay at Bernardo's but we were checked into their sister hotel few minutes away. I assume just because we were four people and they gave us a huge room.
I must say I was very impressed with the building itself, the stairs, the room, the furniture, the doors.. really not even the pictures do justice.
It is a must book when in Venice. Will never book any other hotel again.
Soo clean and amazing quality in decorations.
Reception staff soo nice and helpful and also the housekeeping ladies.
Cannot fault anything to be honest. Excellent all the way.
Thank you!

Had a fantastic stay at Bernardi. Room was cancelled due to covid and hotel
Kindly let us return once all was ok.
Rooms are just exactly what you need to rest your head down. Small, but adequate. Would’ve preferred a bigger shower, but wouldn’t put us off staying again.
Staff very pleasant and friendly, especially Santina.
We will be back for sure as Venice is also a great city.

My wife and I were visiting Venice for the first time. We stayed at this lovely place for 2 nights. The hotel, although rated 2 stars it certainly offers more than that. It is centrally located, very clean and safe. The staff was professional and amazingly helpful. I will definitely check in again next time I will be in Venice.

This was our second stay at the Hotel Bernardi-Semenzato in two years. Venice was the third stop on our 2005 trip to Europe between September and October. Other stays included the Residence La Tavolozza in Positano, the Hotel Alimandi in Rome, and the Mercure Tour Eiffel Suffern in Paris. Also see my reviews of these hotels.

We had stayed at the Bernardi for three nights in September 2004, and came back this year (2005) for six nights. There are important things to remember about this hotel. It is family-run (owned by Maria Teresa and Leonardo Pepoli). It is not a luxury hotel - it is a simple place. It is not in a prime tourist area, and frankly, I consider that a very good thing indeed. It does not have elevators. It's in an alley. If you want luxury, by all means stay near St. Mark's Square, but be prepared to be surrounded mostly by other tourists and be prepared to pay a fortune for food. One of the joys of travel is to experience the locals, their customs, and to enjoy simply prepared local food.

I have read mixed reviews about this hotel on this site. I wonder about them because the sense I get is that people are bringing their own expectations to staying here. If you want to be pampered and coddled, or want room service, or want a big breakfast - don't stay here. Those things are not germane to the Bernardi.

Starting off, the Bernardi is in the Cannaregio neighborhood of Venice, not near St. Mark's Square. The hotel is about an 8-minute walk from the main post office and the nearby Rialto Bridge and incredible Rialto Market. The hotel is a minute away from a typical small Venetian piazza, Ss. Apostoli Square, from which The Strada Nuovo begins. The square has amenities like an outdoor cafe, a newstand, some restaurants, food shops, a beautiful church (Santi Apostoli), and plenty of people hurrying to and fro. The Strada is a fantastic neighborhood street filled with bakeries, gelateria, banks, food shops, shops selling glass or clothes or soaps, even hardware and stationery. There is even a medium-size supermarket. The Strada runs for about 20 minutes and will take you - as it bends and crosses footbridges and changes its name - to the Santa Lucia Train Station, Venice's main station. On the north side of Cannaregio - a six minute walk from the hotel - is the Fondamente Nova vaporetto stop (the boat bus) from where you can catch the vaportetto to the islands of Murano and Burano, or take a ride around the north side of the Venetian Lagoon to the Lido. We had purchased 3-days boat/bus passes for 22-Euros at the vaporetto kiosks outside the train station.

The hotel is minutes away from the Ca' D'Oro Vaporetto stop, which is down a narrow alley off The Strada. This is one of the main stops on the Grand Canal. Again, it is highly recommended that you buy a pass because the boat/buses can cost 3-6 Euros per ride depending on where you are catching them. The Grand Canal Vaporetto (boat/bus #1) is now 6 Euros. A pass makes sense. And the #1 is the main boat from the train station to the hotel. The Ca' D'Oro stop is at a beautiful restored palazzo - the classic, famed Ca' D'Oro building. Get off the boat and walk up the very narrow alley. You'll get to The Strada. Turn right. Walk a few minutes to Ss. Apostoli Square. You'll know when you're there. Turn left, walk past the cafe and a couple of storefronts and you'll see Calle de l'Oca. This is a very narrow lane (alley). It's important to note and remember that Venice is made up of thousands of very narrow alleys. It is no shame to get lost in Venice. Even the Venetians get lost. A visitor is expected to get lost. It's a time-honored tradition. Frankly, the rule is that if you haven't gotten lost, you haven't really walked around Venice.

When you look down Calle de l'Oca, you'll see a small white sign with black lettering that reads Hotel Bernardi. It's across from a restaurant and next to a restaurant. That's your home in Venice.

Your welcome will be pleasant. If you are staying in the main hotel building, you have already chosen not to have a bathroom in your room. If you accepted a room on the very first floor (the least expensive rooms - and this is not an expensive hotel), you will be off the lobby near the tiny breakfast kitchen and you will have to walk across the hall to get to your shower and toilet. The upper floor rooms have shower rooms and separate toilet facilities in the hallway that you will be sharing with other guests. Ask questions before you book. I don't understand people who don't ask questions.

The Bernardi also has rooms and suites down some alleys near a small canal. This is the Bernardi Annex building. The rooms will have both a private bath (with a shower) and toilet in-room. The second floor rooms are comfortable and not tiny. Some of them are very spacious and wildly decorated in the classic Venetian tradition. The owners have also remodeled a third-floor at their Annex and the rooms are superb-looking with beautiful bathroom facilities. We were in a second floor room - in fact, we were in the same room we had in 2004 - and that was alright with us. We did look at a remodeled third floor room, and it was wonderfully re-done. Here's one bit of advice regarding those new Annex rooms. The stairway up from floor 2 to floor 3 is very, very narrow. You have to walk - no elevator, and you will bring whatever luggage you have - large or small - up a step at a time. I should point out that the marble stairway from the Annex's street level entrance to the 2nd floor is wide, but again, if you have a heavy bag, it's a step at a time. By the way, around the corner from the Annex is a movie theater. And the men's clothing shop near the Annex has great affordable items. The man who owns it speaks solid English.

Remember, the Bernardi has stairs to navigate in both buildings. If you want in-room bathing and toilet facilities, they are not available in every room - except in the Annex. You will pay more, although the Bernardi is not an expensive hotel.

Very importantly, the Bernardi's housekeeping is top-notch. The rooms are cleaned daily. The towels are refreshed daily. The sheets are clean. The ladies who do the cleaning are wonderfully friendly and expert at maintaining cleanliness. Leonardo and Maria Teresa run a hotel that prides itself on room cleanliness, and it shows.

If you're concerned about Venetian mosquitos, bring along some spray or repellent or buy some along The Strada. We only saw three mosquitos in our room over six days and swatted them with some newspaper. I have also read that people are concerned about the smell of the canals. Yes, on occasion the canals will have a slight odor, but not every day, and not all day. If the water in the lagoon is high - due to rain or tides - there might be sewer odors. Might. Trust me, the odor won't kill you, and it is not an all-pervasive smell. You're in Venice - it's an old, old, old place, and utterly fascinating and magical, even on cloudy days. It seems to be decaying, but it isn't. It's vibrant. People live and work there. There are no cars (except on the Lido island) and the joy of walking and the pleasure of the quiet are amazing experiences.

I have read that people found some of the staff at the Bernardi rude or surly. Leonardo can be perfunctory - perhaps some will call it curt. He is really a very nice man and quite pleasant. Warm up to him. Try some Italian. He does speak very good English. His wife, Maria Teresa teaches English, and she's a beautiful and charming woman. If you have a problem or a question, don't be afraid to bring it up. Leonardo is not going to bite off your head.

The breakfast at the Bernardi is simple. Prepare yourself for it. Coffee (or tea), juice, yogurt, and pound cake or pastry. That's it. A classic European continental breakfast. Nothing more. Yes, one of the girls serving it needs to smile a bit more. Why not give her a smile? Give her a small tip - perhaps a Euro. We did, each day. Take charge during your trip. Don't hesitate to act, rather than only react.

Dining in Venice is pleasurable, but watch out for the Ristoranti Al Vagon, which is near the Bernardi, and has outdoor tables near a small canal. The restaurant is in the Al Vagon hotel. By the way, the Al Vagon Hotel does not have good ratings on Tripadvisor. We are not very demanding people, but this is a restaurant where the staff is definitely not pleasant and the food only passably good. The woman who seemed to be in charge pretended she did not speak English, but when push came to shove, she spoke it. I find very few Venetians who play this game. In fact, I find very few Italians who play this game. When I ordered a roast veal entree, the woman asked me if I wanted a salad or vegetables or potato to go with it. She clearly indicated that it came with the entree. By the way, this was the worst roast veal I've ever eaten. The slices were 1/16 of an inch thick and seemed to be veal roll, not pure meat. Imagine my surprise when the check came and I was charged a steep extra fee for the salad that I truly expected to come with the meal. The restaurant also has an absurd 3 Euro per person cover charge. This is often seen on the menu as a "coperto." And it's sometimes a bread charge and is usually one Euro or 1.50. Never have I seen it 3 per person. A table of four Brits near us questioned 12-Euros on their menu for seemingly nothing - a few breadsticks is what they give you for your 3 euros per person. The Brits missed the tiny type indicating the 3-euro charge per person. Avoid the Al Vagon restaurant.

A restaurant to definitely seek out is Trattoria Ca' D'Oro Alla Vedova. The restaurant is in a nameless alley entrance off the Strada Nuovo. It's card reads Cannaregio 3212, Fermata Ca' D'Oro. That means it's near the vaporetto stop at Ca' D'Oro, which, of course, is the Bernardi's stop. Here's how to find it. Leave the hotel. Walk up The Strada to the Ca' D'Oro Vaporetto Stop alley entrance. Stop walking. Look to your right and you'll see walk space that goes back about 50 feet. There's a restaurant at the end. That's The Trattoria Ca' D'Oro Alla Vedova. The food is world class, with a mushroom lasagna - if available - that will knock your socks off. The eggplant lasagana is also spectacular. Seafood? Of course, and it's superb. The restaurant is not big on desserts, however. We ate there twice and one time I had a succulent liver and onion dish that changed forever the way I will look at liver and onions. I've never experienced anything like it. The dish came with a breathtakingly delicious polenta that was the color and consistancy of fresh cream.

Here's how you secure a table at this restaurant. It is very popular, but not impossible to get into. You can always stand at the small bar area and have tastes from the tiny buffet and have a drink. Many Venetians do this. But you really want to dine there. Reservations are vital for regular evening dining hours - 8:00 to 10:00. The restaurant's doors are closed until precisely 6:30. It is not open on Thursday or Sunday. Odd days, but that's their plan. Anyway, at between 6:30 and 6:45 p.m., go there and ask for a table. You should be advised that you can have a space, but must finish eating by 8. Or, of course, you can go in at any time and make reservations for another night or as many nights as you want. Most of the tables are long (rectangular) with dark polished wood, and seat six. But, they are usually set for four. This means you will, if you are dining with only one other person, enjoy a meal with another twosome. This is a great way to meet people and is lots of fun. We ate at here in 2004, arriving very late for that meal. This year, we went in once at 6:45 and ate until 8, and also made a reservation for a second night. On the second night we shared our table with a thirty-something architect from Munich, Germany who was with his 75-year old mother (a great, vibrant lady). He had brought his mom to Venice for the weekend as a birthday present. Nice son. Nice present. It was a terrific meal and the comradery was wonderful.

There is a lot to see in Venice, but I do recommend a boat ride to Murano island to see the glassmakers and take in the shops. I also recommend a boat ride to Burano island to see the lacemakers. Burano is also famous for its colorfully painted homes. Both can be done in the same day. The Lido is also a great place to visit. In Venice itself, I was pleasantly surprised by the very eclectic modern art collection at the Peggy Guggenheim Museum on the Grand Canal. Well worth a visit.

While taking some back alleys in the Santa Croce neighborhood to get to a vaporetto stop, I happened upon a shop in which a glorious woman, Teresa Della Valentina, makes some of the most incredible hand-painted tiles you've ever seen. The shop is called Arca and is at 1811 Calle Tentor in the Santa Croce section of Venice. Calle tentor is directly off the walk that is near the San Stae vaporetto stop. Stroll south for about three minutes from the stop. Teresa is a true artist and absolutely filled with joy and pride at her work. We bought some more of her amazing tiles. Her range of work and her colors are exceptional. Her photo is included with the batch of photographs I've posted with this review. And, of course, no trip to Venice is complete without a visit to the Rialto Market and a hello to the fabulous Giuliana. The day we were there she was wearing a fantastic leopard print jacket and white sunglasses while selling her terrific produce.

I also want to mention a day-long side trip we took from Venice to Bologna. We caught a mid-morning train to this most interesting of cities. Bologna gets very few American tourists and that's unjustified. The train took about two hours and it was worth the ride. The city is fantastic. The archways that cover almost every sidewalk are amazing. There's a great old tower you can go up into (598 steps for 3 euros for a breathtaking view of Bologna and the surrounding hills). Every person in every store we entered (gelateria, restaurant, olive oil and cheese shop) was incredibly friendly and was thrilled Americans had come to their city. Bologna is home to the world's largest university (100,000 students). It has a fascinating old town section. It's a big city without the insane traffic or graffiti that Rome has. The San Maggiore square is huge and the main church - Basilica San Petronius - is truly beautiful. We had a flawless meal at a restaurant where students and professors were hanging out. The place was called Il Ristoro Della Fate and is at 24/f Via Zamboni in the university quarter. I had perfect tortoloni (invented in Bologna, by the way). Trains run constantly, so returning to Venice late at night was not a problem.

Venice is unlike most cities you've experienced. My best advice is to get into the swing of things. You will walk. You will boat. You will mrvel at the decay and the beauty. You will get lost. All perfect. I'm happy to call the Hotel Bernardi my home in Venice, and I plan on calling it that on future visits.

We recently spent three weeks in Europe, from September 21 through October 12. See my other reviews of the Hotel Alimandi in Rome, the La Fortezza in Florence, the Libertel Austerlitz in Paris, and the Ibis Earl's Court in London. The second stop on our European trip was for three days in Venice and the Hotel Bernardi on Calle de l'Oca.

The hotel is located near the Ca D'Oro boat-bus stop on the Grand Canal in the Cannaregio neighborhood. It is near the SS. Apostoli Church Square with its cafes and shops. The main street is the Strada Nuovo, which, if you walk it's extended length, is filled with hundreds of shops and restaurants and will eventually take you back to the main train station. Walk the other way, through the lanes and alleys, and you will eventually reach the main tourist area - St. Mark's Square. You will also come upon the Rialto Bridge, the way to the fabulous Rialto Market starting Tuesdays and the freshest fish you will see on any counter (actually still jumping). The produce selection is breathtaking.

You have to understand Venice to appreciate the Bernardi. The city is made up of thousands of alleys and there are thriving businesses and restaurants and attractions in what seems like every alley. You are literally two minutes from the busy Strada Nuovo, but the alley that houses the Bernardi is quiet. When you exit, you turn a corner or two and suddenly you are walking with hundreds of others grocery shopping or buying treats doing their banking, etc. And you are five minutes from the Ca D'Oro boat-bus stop.

The main building that houses the original Bernardi is small. There is no elevator, but there are only two floors. The reception area and the breakfast room are in the main building. The owners have also purchased floors of two apartment buildings on either side of the Bernardi in other alleys, a few minutes walk from the main building. The rooms in these wings are large and it's like having your own private apartment in Venice. I suppose for some travelers this might be disconcerting (if you have kids or something like that), but for adults, which we are, it was great. The lack of an elevator in our building didn't bother us. Our room was on the second floor, and you just bring your luggage up a step at a time - thank goodness for wheels on suitcases. As for the comment about the receptionist not being present, I would look at it as a matter of trust. This is how safe and honest and wonderful Venice can be. Stop acting like rush-rush-rush tourists and get into the Venetian mood. Relax and enjoy the place. It's magical and different and amazing.

Our room was clean and the maid service was reliable. The sheets were clean, the room swept daily, and the towels were fresh. In Italy, wash cloths are not considered important, so I wish people would stop fretting about that. The oversize linens that passed for a hand towel or wash cloth were just fine. The bath towels were perfect.

As for the proximity to other buildings, well, Venice is a dense, compact city. Again, get into the swing of things.

Leonardi, the owner, is precise and businesslike, but he does smile and can be very helpful. When we were having difficulty communicating in a clothing store around the corner, he wrote the Italian version of "do you have any other sweaters like this" and "what colors and sizes do you have" and we passed the note to the shopkeeper. Santini, the primary receptionist was terrifically friendly and eager to share her love of Venice with us. She was quick and knowledgeable with solid advice on dining.

The breakfast that comes with the room rate is truly simple and sparse. I guess folks can complain about that, but it didn't bother me. The coffee was good and hot and the pastries were delicious. You may not get more than that, so if that's a drawback, take note.

We loved Venice, got lost a few times in the maze of alleys and back streets, but had no problems with the Bernadi. It is a simple, clean, family inn. It is not expensive and that's an added plus. There may not be anything fancy about it, but I would definitely recommend it.

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!

We stayed in one of the rooms in the hotel annex (E120/night) for four nights; I chose this hotel in part because they had rooms that could hold four people (our two kids were with us). The room we had (#5 on the second floor - the floor above the ground floor) was large, furnished nicely, very clean, and had a seemingly recently renovated bathroom (with a great towel warmer). The morning continental breakfast (included) was more than adequate and consisted of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, fresh rolls, cake/pastry, orange juice, and yogurt on some mornings. The location seemed as convenient as any, it was certainly as easy to walk to San Marco as it was to take a vaporetto there.

I recommend the bar/restaurant directly across the narrow street from the hotel office. The have a wide assortment of cichetti (mostly fish and shellfish appetizers/tapas) that, along with their house white wine make for a good, cheap evening meal.

If you don't like fish, then you should probably admit that you are an incomplete person, unworthy of the best Italian food, stay at home and eat at the Olive Garden. My kids hate fish, but they managed to always find something to eat (they are unworthy too, but I take them along anyway!).

Regarding the hotel, the proprietors responded quickly to my e-mail inquiry, they take credit cards (I guess not that unusual these days!), and the rooms were always made up every day while we were out seeing the sights. If you are arriving on the Aliluguna boat from the airport, get off at Fondamento (sp?) Nuove, head south on a five to ten minute walk to San Apostoli church and you'll be within a hundred meters of the hotel.

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.
