“Awful in every way”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

I would not recommend anyone to stay here. I wanted to leave straight away, but had to bare it and spent most of the day outside.
Breakfast was stale, not fresh and seemed like flies were also hungry.
W were also introduced to the murano glass tour which was a way to make money from the guests staying at the hotel. The staff provided us with a map but no other transport help.

Cheap room layout, small and tacky.
Best thing about the place was the location.
Stay away! Better places in Venice.

Room Tip: Cannot recommend anything.

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel after visiting Rome and Florence. We found the lady at this hotel, quite strange.

On arrival we were given a map and immediately shown a leaflet to go on some Murano Glass tour for 20 euros which didn't really interest us, as we had plans already. She was a little bit persistent because she revisited this topic the same evening when we saw her. We also asked her the cheapest way to get to the airport as we were flying back in a couple of days and she said "60 euros" taxi! After asking her of other ways to travel, she said nothing else. We mentioned the vaporeto and she said 'ah, yes but they are busy". In my opinion, they can get busy but they cost 7 euro each way and always have seating.

The man at the newsagent was more helpful than this lady! We purchased a 15 euro airport (airlaguna) ticket from him. Highly recommened from the local stop which is 'san zakaria'. It does take 1 hour to get to airport but great. I felt she tried to con us in many ways, rather than showing tourists easy and cheaper ways.

Room was small, tiny shower but clean.

Excellent location to St marks square and nice shops around.

Breakfast- watch out for the flies!

Wifi- should cost 8 euros for 24 hrs in Venice but the lady charges 6 euros for 6 hours, 11 euros for 12 hours. 1 hour, 2 euros. I bought this 1 hour package and after using it for 30 mins it cut off. Reason is, if you don't log out then even if you use 1 min, it takes 5 mins away. Be careful! It should be free anyway!

Overall, paid 220 euros for 2 nights because booked last minute, but I would try elsewhere.

hotelbridge, Responsabile reception at Hotel Bridge, responded to this review, 31 July 2013
Dear Madam,
Thank you very much for your review and we are sorry that you did not appreciate our service!
We just want to inform you that the Reception of our hotel for over 20 years give its guests information on how to visit the city in the most economical, although enjoying the best services!
The excursion to which it refers to is an example! Saves time and money taking advantage of a very well organized and request! For this reason, we asked you if you want to participate in the evening before, in order to avoid to lose the place!
As for the methods of attaining to and from the airport the private taxi is the faster way which costs about 100 € and not 60 € as you write, the less expensive and more crowded is Public transportation . Our recepion describe the 2 possibilities and then it is up to the customer the choice!
Following your review we also see that you don't like the economic standard room, but even more sorry that it has not noticed that in the " last minute" price you paied was included beyond the continental breakfast also a buffet of sweet and salted things!!!
In order to conclude the wi fi was used until the last minute like we have illustrated to you at our front desk ( we show you the connections)!
Hoping to have answered all your questions, we are available for any clarification!

The room was so small that there was barely room to walk around the bed. The bathroom literally could not have been smaller. You had to wedge yourself to sit down and there was barely room to raise your arms in the shower. A larger person simply wouldn't fit. The location is great, but the staff was indifferent at best; it seems they know they'll get guests, so why go out of their way? Breakfast was okay on the weekend, but just that. By Monday it was stale leftovers from the weekend and processed cheese. There was a charge for wireless, which seems unreasonable (and wasn't the case other places we stayed). We were very disappointed.

My hubby and I stayed here for 3 nights on our visit to Venice. We had a great stay. The hotel is small but clean and comfortable. It was a really great price too- Venice is a bit expensive! Th location is really great-5 minute walk to Piazza San Marco, 5 minutes walk from the Vaporetta and many delicious Italian restaurants nearby! And the continental breakfast was a bonus. Recommend

Very good. 5 mins walk from San Marco and remarkably quiet! Very friendly and helpful service. Rooms great. Only criticism is the shower being a bit small. Reasonable price too (considering where it is)

Nice little hotel less than 5 minutes walk from St Marks Square. Rooms are very clean and nicely decorated, very comfy beds [room 10] showers are small but manageable! Breakfast was nice and set us up for a morning of sightseeing. Very friendly and helpful staff. We booked the island tour though reception.
Generally the restaurants in Venice were expensive, even if you choose the tourist menu you will pay a lot for drinks [11 euros for 2 cokes] but ok deals to be found in the back streets!

Room Tip: Room 10 was a good size and very quiet.

I stayed at the hotel in may 2012 for 5 days. We had many problems finding the hotel. The breakfast was small and we had little choice, The bathroom was soooo tiny to the point we could not shut the shower door when having a shower because we would not of been able to move, and there was very little water pressure. The walls were dirty and stained. For the price we paid i felt that we did not get good value for money. The room was so tiny that you cant even walk around the bed. Really disappointed with our stay.
