This small hotel with its own secret garden, lies perfectly situated in one Venice's quieter areas, very close to the Fondamenta Nove (seaside where many of the larger boats leave from, among others the boat to the airport) and not more than a short stroll away from the Rialto bridge and the more busy parts of the city.
The hotel is basic, but has everything you need. Our room provided us with a double bed (well, at least two single beds placed next to each other), a small private bathroom with WC and shower, fresh towels, soap/shampoo and even slippers, a wardrobe, a large mirror and a small TV, plus a couple of chairs and a small table.
The staff was very nimce, welcoming us in a friendly and agreeable altough rather quiet (as opposed to what many of us think of when we think of stereotype italians at least...) way. They will provide you with a map of the city as well as tips for good restaurants nearby if asked. They were also so kind as to store our luggage on our last day in Venice from the time of our check out until out boat was leaving for the airport.
We never got up in time for the breakfast which is served in the hotel from 8 until 9.30, however as there were lots of cafes with great coffee nearby, this was never really a problem.
The only thing which was less fortunate during our stay at the Casa Boccassini, was the fact that the hotel must have either really great accustics or really thin walls as we were often woken up in the morning or kept awake at night by other guest arriving/leaving, people speaking loudly or even shouting in the corridor or outside in the garden. It was actually quite peculiar that we were disturbed more by the sounds within the small hotel than from the street outside our window.
Nevertheless, I would really recommend this small oasis in an otherwise buzzling city! Bring a couple of earplugs and I promise you'll sleep like a baby after an eventfull day in this amazing city and not least with a stomach full of delicious pasta and great wine.
