This was the third time I had stayed here - that in itself must show how much I rate it! Just a short walk - about 15 to 20 minutes from St. Marks - and a beautiful walk too along the Grand Canal. Situated next to a park, it was really quiet and also a very safe area for anyone travelling alone. The staff are very welcoming and really make you feel at home. The girl on the desk speaks English really well. What I liked were the nice little touches like being able to fill up your water bottle in the dining room at any time and a large fridge for the use of guests. It was spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were very good. I stayed in about six different places in Italy this year, including 4 star hotels but this was in my mind the best in every respect!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Placed in the Sestiere of Castello in the extreme part of Venice, in the proximities of the Biennale exhibition, the B&B is out of the tourist mass area in quiet position. Good point of departure to discover the greatest tourist attractions: St. Mark's Square is just 15 minutes away by feet, the stop of the vaporetto "Giardini / Biennale" (around 250 meters away) is served from three public lines. We offer simple and functional rooms with en suite bathroom all equipped with telephone, air conditioning, autonomous heating, wi fi connection and hair dryer. No curfew time for the night reentry. ... more less
