This was a lucky find for us. We prefer not to be right in the thick of it, while at the same time able to get to whatever we want. Here, we were just a stone's throw from a vaporetto stop (though we only used it to get there when we first arrived) and were easily able to walk to... More

One problem for tourists in Venice is going up and down bridges with luggage. This hotel doesn't have that problem. It is easy to find and no bridges from the stop. Service is very good. The room is not big but price is reasonable for Venice. The neighborhood is great, not in most touristy part so one can see some... More

This is our third time at this hotel, although the last visit was several years ago. We prefer Venice in the winter so probably have a very different experience to summer visitors. The hotel is in a small palazzo, family run, moderately priced (for Venice) and exceedingly popular, so almost impossible to book during the main season. Cheaper in low... More

We returned for 7 nights here. This time, instead of the ground floor room, which was too dark for us, we stayed one night in a superior room on the 2nd floor and 6 nights in a double (Il Campiello) on the 3rd floor. If stairs are a problem for you this is not the place for you. There are... More

We had a wonderful stay here. The staff are just the friendliest, and their English is great. It's in a great location, less than a minute walk from a vaporetto stop! Beautiful rooms and delicious breakfast. I would recommend this to anyone.

After previous visits to Venice, we resolved to not stay near the Rialto, and not struggle with luggage over bridges or on crowded vaporetti. This time, and worth the expense, a water taxi took us from Piazzale Roma to the water door of this traditional Venetian house now converted to a hotel, but still run by the original family. Rooms...

The hotel is conveniently close to the vaporetto landing stage of Ca'Rezzonico (approx 50 yards), tucked away in a quiet street. Beautiful interiors, and exceptionally warm welcome from the staff, who speak excellent English and will help with any queries. Although our Classic room was quite dimly lit, and the shower was rather unpredictable (ie from hot to cold without... More

Beautiful, clean, quiet hotel in an excellent location 30 seconds from a vaporetto stop on the Grand Canal. Frescoes in the lovely sitting room and beautiful garden as well as a balcony we took great photos from. Helpful staff with good recommendations for restaurants. Love that their back door is a little dock!

Excellent location. Away from the hustle bustle, yet one block down from the vaperetto (water bus) stop. And the neighborhood is lovely. You can walk around and stroll the plazas and side streets with fewer tourists and really get the feeling of the beautiful life of the venetians. The owners are absolutely lovely and they are so helpful with reservations... More

If you have stumbled upon this place during your Venice hotel search you can stop looking. This place is awesome, it is a hidden gem! You cannot book this hotel through any travel sites so it does not show up in any of their hotel search results. I found this place by zooming into google maps at street level and... More
