Very nice, comfortable and clean place in Venice!! You can enjoy the beauty of this unique place in the world, standing in the middle of Venice. The owner is there to give you all the suggestions you need to know and live deeply the Real Venice. I will come back with my girlfriend very soon!!!!!!

We had a disasterous couple of nights stay at this b&b. The rooms are very basic, no air conditioning (don't do this in summer!), bathroom not in rooms, breakfast is a DIY with cheap ingredients, and not able to leave luggage once checked out which caused a lot of inconvenience & additional expense! The only positive things to say is... More

Hi you all I was there in Februar 21013 for St. Valentine and it was the best I ever had! This cosy B&B is located in front of San Barnaba Curch, close to Campo Santa Margherita ( centre of the venetina movida) but pretty quiet and with a wonderful view. The structure is, as usual in Venice,ancient, charming even if... More

This B&B was a disaster. Where to start? Well, first, when we arrived, the door was locked and no one answered either the doorbell or my very loud knocks. No check-in instructions; nothing. It turns out the owner was no where around; he must live far away, because we never saw him in 3 days there. Our phone didn't work... More

My husband and I are very seasoned travelers who take major trips at least three times a year and often more. We have visited 49 countries over the past 5 years, and usually stay at moderately priced hotels. We chose Ancient Venice specifically because of the reviews, and once we visited there we simply could not believe that anyone actually... More

My review is based on what easy books web site advertises. When we arrived you have to call the manager who took 30 min to arrive while we sat outside with our luggage! When we got to our room even though we booked a double it was 2 single beds, there was NO aircon and july is hot in Venice,... More

This hotel is great, the best solution for a few days in Venice and with the lost price found! The location is near everthing and stays only 30 minutes walking from San Marco.

"Ancient Venice" has been our home for 3 days. And it was a brilliant experience to live in the real Venezian 500-years-old house keeping all memories and old stories of last centuries. The room was nice and clean. From our window we could see the San Barnaba Church and campo San Barnaba - a beautiful place in the heart of... More
