Room amenities included hairdryer, shower, toilet and bidet. Soap and shampoo was provided. Our room had a telephone and a safe with a lock. The hotel offers an Italian breakfast for 5 euros per day.
This neighborhood felt very homey, with Campo S.S. Apostoli as a place to enjoy one's morning cappuccino. While I had to navigate many neighborhoods to get to the main tourist attractions, I saw a lot more of Venice in this way. The location takes you away from the hustle and bustle of Piazza San Marco, and lets you enjoy the real Venice.
Coming from the airport, take the Alilaguna boat to San Marco. From San Marco, take the #1 vaporetto up the Grand Canal and disembark at the Ca D'Oro. Take a right on the first street after you come up the alleyway and continue on to Campo S.S. Apostoli. The Hotel Bernardi is on a street just off this square.
