Hotel Da Bruno

La Boutique del Gelato

ABOVE: Need dessert after the Hotel Da Bruno's buffet breakfast? No problem--an artisanal gelato shop is next door.

Category:  Three-star hotel.

Location: On the Salizzada San Lio in Castello, halfway between the Rialto Bridge and the Piazza San Marco. Closest Alilaguna Airport Boat stop: Rialto.

Convenient when:

Hotel Da Bruno entranceYou want to be next door to La Boutique del Gelato (which many Venetians believe is the best gelateria in Venice, and you don't mind walking a reasonable distance from the nearest airport-boat or vaporetto pier. (If you can justify the high price of a water taxi, you'll find a boat landing right by the hotel.)

Hotel Da Bruno receptionThe hotel, like its gelato-purveying neighbor, has an excellent reputation: The Sartore family has owned the Hotel Da Bruno for three generations, and the traditionally-furnished rooms includes triples and quads (which aren't always easy to find in Venice). As a bonus, Wi-Fi is free, and it's available throughout the hotel. The only downside is the lack of an elevator, which may discourage guests with weak knees or limited mobility.
