This place is in a great location for exploring the city, but it has a few issues. The room we stayed in was relatively big, but we had to share with other travelers, and had no way to lock up our belongings. There was only one bathroom on the floor (I'm not sure how many rooms there were on the... More

Two friends and I booked three beds in a dorm room for 4 nights at Ai Boteri. The second night the manager upgraded us to a private room and gave us a private bathroom in another room to use without charging us anything more! The service was wonderfull and the rooms were clean. The location is perfect for exploring Venice... More

We assumed they were from outside and went to bed. In the morning we found blood stains in our bed and... More

Myself and a friend stayed at the ai boterie. It was affordable and well located. On our last day we discovered bedbugs !!! I have written to them to alert them of the problem and have given them a few days to get back to me, since I have heard nothing I can only assume they are not concerned about... More

This was the WORST value room I have ever stayed in, and we've backpacked in the poorest in central america. Just can't believe it operates. By the way, the sink in the room is only for show, not even roughed into the wall and you may as well share your room with everyone since you hear everything....everything.
