We stayed at the Rosa dei Venti for one night and had a short but great stay.
We took a water taxi from the airport - you can either take the quicker red line directly to Arsenale, which is a minute or two away from the B&B or take the blue line (which has more stops) and get off at the San Zaccaria stop - just under a five minute walk.
I had forgotten to let them know what time we were arriving - after ringing the buzzer and getting no response, I called them (their phone number is helpfully on the bell) and a lady came to meet us within a few minutes.
I had booked the B&B as it has the same beautiful lagoon view as the Danieli but at less than half the cost. The Rosa de Venti is only about 10 minutes walk to Saint Marks square along the lagoon, but feels in a much more 'local' area of Venice.
There are a couple of flights of stairs, but these were quite wide and therefore I would imagine easy to navigate with suitcases. We had booked a double room with a view - and it certainly delivered that with, double doors opening up onto the lagoon and a little balcony to take in the view of the locals below and a lovely view of San Giorgio Island.
The room had a double then 2 single beds, but as there were only two of us I'd have preffered only the double in the room. To be honest we stayed one night and as it's peak season the extra beds didn't really bother us too much.
The bathroom was fine. There was a shower, but it was a bit odd as it had a small semi-circle seat in it which meant there wasn't a huge amount of room in there (I dropped the soap and didn't have space to pick it up!) but the water pressure was good, the temperature great and it was really clean.
The room had air conditioning which was fantastic after a hard day pounding the pavements! There was also a small working fridge in the wardrobe and a hairdryer in the bathroom.
Breakfast was taken in the cafe downstairs from about 8am until 10am - with a good tasty choice.
Overall I would recommend La Rosa dei Venti B&B, we had a lovely stay and would go back there.
