The room was very nice and Natalie was really welcoming and excellent. It is a good deal overall in my opinion as it is situated near loads of restaurants and not too far from the Rialto Bridge which I used as a landmark.

The staff is very friendly and the hostel is really nice, looks like they care more about having a good time than actually making business. Paulo the owner has many good advices about venice, don't hesitate to ask him.

Please do not stay here if you are looking to have an all-round wonderful experience in Venice. We arrived late (10:30PM) our first night here after a long day of travel due to transportation cancellations due to a strike in Italy. I made sure to tell the host we would be arriving late due to the change in travel plans,... More

1. The worst downside of this place is there is Only ONE bathroom for all people!! It was a nightmare, waiting for bathroom line early morning and late night, especially with limited time for sightseeing. This place is not supposed to be b&b, it's a just normal house and tries to function as a b&b. So you can feel many... More

Our family of 4 stayed in a single room with 1 double and 2 single beds. The rooms are clean, the hosts are friendly, and the location is great, near the Rialto bridge and good restaurants and shopping. This was our first B&B, so I can't compare to others. The breakfast is very basic, with prepackaged buns and biscuits and... More

We had a fantastic experience @ this B&B - the location is brilliant, just a few minutes walk from the Water Bus Stop & the historic Rialto Bridge. Paolo had given us instructions on how to reach the B&B - they were spot on (believe me finding your way in the lanes & alleys of Venice can be a real... More

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
