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

I ❤️ Venice and Santa sofia hotel was fabulously placed to see and do almost everything. Paolo found us wandering around looking for the hotel on the first day and he is a gracious host, very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was meh however the lovely cappucino set us up for the day. Reasonably priced considering how expensive Venice is and... More

Their location is great at the center of venice. Only 3-5 Min. you can walk to Rialto bridge that near... More

Having never been to Venice I was unsure what to expect. We chose this B&B because of it's value and held our breath. There was no need to worry. It may not be fancy, but it is clean and spacious. Our room had 4 twin beds that could be pushed together to make 2 queens. It was quite large with... More

I stayed here recently while travelling with my family. This worked out perfectly for us, as the property has 3 rooms, and there were 7 of us, so we needed two doubles and a triple. We did have a little bit of a job finding it, and had to carry our suitcases over the Rialto bridge, but once we were... More

This B&B is in someone's home although the accommodations are very nice and seemingly private. We booked the largest room for 3 people traveling as a family. Pros: Extremely convenient to everywhere you want to be in Venice. Essentially 4 blocks (2 turns) from Rialto Bridge and a short walk to the water taxi, St. Marks and all central locations.... More
