We just got back from a wonderful trip to Italy that started with three nights in Venice at the Santa Margherita Guesthouse. The location was great as it was easy to find, by Venice standards, and was close to the Academia area and a short walk from Rialto Bridge. Our room was very nice with shuttered windows that allowed us... More

My experience in the Santa Margherita Guesthouse was a positive one and best summarised as convenient, comfortable and tranquil. The single bed room I occupied provided all the comfort I need: it was spacious, clean, had air conditioning, a fridge, TV and a safe. Wifi is also available throughout the Guesthouse. There is also a nice commune garden where you... More

I had a great time in Venice and the accommodation helped: it was relatively inexpensive (for Venice!), had a terrific host in Maria who is very knowledgable (and helpful and friendly), was in a quiet location, close to a Vaporetto stop, close to the Academia (a must visit) and with a fairly easy walk to St Mark's Square (though you...

I really enjoyed my stay at the Santa Margherita Guesthouse. It's a clean, quiet, and well maintained guesthouse with a wonderful host. The guesthouse is located in the Dorsoduro area of Venice, about a 15-20 minute walk from the train station depending on how much luggage you have. You have to cross several bridges to get there, all of which... More

We had four nights here. Maria, the host, gives a very warm welcome and can explain anything you want to know about the place, the area, how to get to any of the sights, where to eat and so on. It's a friendly place. Our room was clean, well looked after, well fitted, bright and pleasant with a view over... More

Maria and her staff are the best and they will see that your stay is all that you want it to be. It was 85 degrees the morning I arrived, the first hot day of this year, and Maria's staff were cleaning filters and turning air conditioners on. Each room has its own temperature control and I was totally comfortable.... More

We stayed 5 nights in Venice and was looking for a B & B that was close enough to St. Marks Square (i.e. 10-15 minute walk is acceptable). Our criteria for choosing any place to stay: a) good value b) clean c) good service d) quiet, not too close to "touristy" areas because we want to explore more local restaurants...likely... More

Lovely little guesthouse tucked away off Campo Santa Margherita. We had a modern and especially comfortable room with an excellent bathroom where everything worked (including the towel warmer). Maria the manager is an especially welcoming hostess and went out of her way to help us enjoy our stay. Due to the strict Venetian regulations, the small guesthouse cannot serve hot... More

We have been very disappointed by our stay at Margherita guesthouse here are the main reasons: 1. Breakfast is awful: nothing fresh, no ham or cheese or eggs... but a full range of pre-packed industrial cakes. Worst breakfast ever in Italy. Hours are not flexible at all: 8:30 to 9:30 only. 2. The guesthouse is very noisy, both inside and... More
