Here you stay at a place that feels like your own Venetian palace away from home. Rooms are spacious (huge actually), glamorous, filled with Venetian furniture and chandeliers. Old school all the way. Wonderful piano nobile setting for breakfast/ common area. Owner Cinzia is very kind and helpful. Excellent vibe to the whole authentic place.

We stayed at this BNB for 2 nights during carnival. It was quite easy to find which we were surprised by. The host is so welcoming. Upon check in she gives you a map and recommends restaurants in the area. The building is very impressive - an old palace. We loved the decor and the whole feel of the place. The room was very large and clean. Bed is very comfortable. The location is perfect. Within walking distance to everywhere. Breakfast is lovely, lots of selection. Would definitely recommend this BNB to others.

A b&b near Hospital in Castillo. On a square with restaurants. Surprisingly close to St Marco square and Rialto but without the crowds.

Large common area. Very authentic room room etc.

Themed rooms.
We had Japan- a bit funny in Venice, but I guess the orient was the theme!

Good breakfast

Good staff.

No lift but on first floor.

Wonderful experience at this B & B situated in historic building overlooking the Campo Santa Maria Formosa. We were very impressed with the spacious beautiful rooms, the view from the dining room and the wonderfully helpful host. Take note of the photo provided in arrival email as a bit difficult to find first time as up on first floor. However well worth it. We will certainly return.

Room tip: We had a huge double room with extra twin room attached. Wonderful for family with children.

It was my first time in Venice and the same for my chinese wife...I can say Venice is the most beautiful city i had ever visited. "La Porta d' Oriente" is a great place to stay, wonderful palace 10 minutes walking from San Marco. Nice room, nice owner, very good breakfast, for us everything was perfect: I 100% recommend this place to everybody!
