This first floor flat overlooks a small canal and bridge, 10 minutes easy walk east from Piazza San Marco. Large rooms, separate toilet and bathroom and a kitchen/dining room which is available for use. We made our own breakfast, although the owners also offer a B&B package. They are very friendly and helpful, recommending local restaurants and providing other tourist information. There’s a supermarket 100 metres away, and it’s 700m to the boat stop (Ospedale) for the airport. It’s a very good deal for central Venice. One small point: the double bed is two singles joined together, and the mattresses tend to separate. It’s understandable as you might use the room as two companions rather than a couple, and it’s not a big deal, but worth noting.
Nothing fancy about this property, in fact, as other posts state, it was a room in an apartment, very basic. However, in Venice, I wanted to spend more time outside than in. The room and private bathroom was clean and the bed comfortable. Friendly welcome on arrival with lots of good advice and recommendations of places to go and to eat . Ideal location for exploring and getting to St Marks Basilica etc. I wouldn’t bother with the breakfast- you can buy your own from the supermarket or eat out. Considering how you expensive Venice is, I would recommend staying here.
This B&B is well located, near San Marco yet not in the middle of crowds. The room is a good size and clean, and breakfast was tasty. Fabio's father was very nice and recommended a local concert to me which I really enjoyed.
This was an excellent place to stay. Quiet, but only ten minutes or so walk from St Mark's Square, with a supermarket close by and a charming and helpful owner. Spacious, peaceful, and a pleasure to come back to each day.
We found this place on Trip Advisor. Not a hotel but rather a private room in an apartment tucked away in a private alley in Venice. Owner is a very nice guy and was very accommodating. Room was spacious, clean and priced fairly. Nothing fancy. Cash only. We really liked the location too -- very quiet back area but you go around the corner and there are outdoor cafes busy well into the night. Skip the tourist hotels and try this one.
The b&b is on the first floor (above the ground floor) of a family property in the heart of Venice, close to San Marco and the Biennale. The rooms overlook a canal and a bridge, with a true Venetian atmosphere. There is a kitchen and you can find a supermarket a few steps up the canal, very useful for avoiding the high prices of Venice restaurants and cafés. Rooms and bathrooms clean. Private bathrooms, but not adjoining the rooms. Price convenient for Venice standards. The friendly owner gives advice about city and transportation. Basic breakfast, but you can buy your own food. No credit cards.
We stayed in the separate apartment as the B and B rooms were booked. Prior to arriving we made arrangements for a piece of our luggage to arrive two weeks before our arrival. Fabio was very accommodating with this. Upon arrival we were provided a map( which is necessary to get around Venice ) with restaurant and sightseeing suggestions. We took the advice and enjoyed delicious meals during our stay. The apartment was comfortable with all the amenities needed. We made use of the fridge for our breakfast food but did not need to make use of the stove. The sleeping area is in the upper loft which is accessed by a catwalk from the apartment door. There are large windows in the apartment but they are barred from the outside as the apartment looks out onto one of the alleyways that the rooms are accessed from. The mornings come alive with the sounds of people travelling along the alleys to move around the city. This is a good place to stay if you plan on spending most of your time seeing the sights of Venice as it is central. The hosts are very accommodating …
What a wonderful find! This hotel is almost like having your own apartment in the city. It was perfect for our stay and Fabio is wonderful! There are only two rooms, we were in the room on the left which was perfect. TONS of light in the morning through the huge windows overlooking the canals. I would recommend this place to anyone and if you are with another couple you could probably rent the entire floor since there are only two rooms in the hotel. All of Fabio's recommendations were spot on for food and places to see. We did not hit any tourist spots this trip and it was perfect.
We were pleasantly surprised with how nice this BnB is! Got a little lost finding it but like the other reviews, Fabio was waiting for us calling outside the window. He helped us bring up our luggage. The place was very clean. We got the front bedroom with the canal view. Even though we were the only visitors thwre beware that Fabio will drop on late morning to check on you. So do be modest going to the bathroom, etc. He always sets plates for breakfast. Mostly danish and toast. If you like milk with your coffee and tea, I suggest you go to the market close by to get it. He had orange juice, bottled water, and some yogurt. Fabio really made us feel at home. Best part - we had air conditioning! Would come back and recommend this place to others!
The B&B had three rooms and a shared kitchen. You have th place to yourself apart from the morning when a lovely gentlemen assists with breakfast. My father and I stayed for five nights in a twin room. Great view over th water with a seperate bathroom and shower room. Place is clean and the location is fantastic. You can walk to everything and it's quiet in the evenings in comparison to th main tourist streets. Fabio (the owner) gave us with a map and recommend some things to do when we checked it. We didn't find th place hard to find however the main issue is there is no sign for the B&B. We were stood outside it and didn't even realise. Thankfully Fabio spotted us. There is only a tiny gold plaque on the door. It isn't obvious at all so I'd recommend you look at the house numbers. Breakfast is simple but satisfactory. The only thing we found a tad odd was there were only two yogurts for four people and one little milk which want enough for four people. certainly not the end of the world. Bathroon is very clean but no shower curtain which was interesting. I'd recommend this B&B and I'd certainly stay here agin.…
