My partner and I stayed in the double superior room at the La Rose dei Venti for three nights. Prior to arrival, I received communication from the B&B giving us instructions for entering the building. And on arrival, Giovanni met us with a warm welcome. The B&B is situated in a wonderful location, a 7-10 minute walk from St Marks square, and two minutes away from the arsenale vaporetto stop. This walk is along the front of the island with beautiful views over the river, with attractive solid bridges with shallow steps which is welcoming after a day full of walking around Venice.
The room was large and airy, whilst the bathroom was clean and everything worked as expected (the shower was a bit of a squeeze, but the temperature and pressure was good). Breakfast was actually better than expected having read the reviews, and gave my partner and I a good start to each days exploring.
The view from the superior rooms, with the balcony looking over the river, were just fantastic. Every morning I got out of bed, drew the curtains and opened the door, and got back into bed, watching and hearing the vaporetto's, water taxi's (big and small), trade boats, and occasional cruise liner chug past outside. This for me was magic, and I would urge anyone to pay a little more for the pleasure - worth doing considering the B&B is far cheaper than many other close by hotels. Overall, I was very happy with the B&B, and would definitely consider returning (when and not if) I return to Venice - amazing place!
