I liked it here. I think it was perfect for people like us, who were on a budget, couldn't afford the price of Venetian hotels but also couldn't bring ourselves to staying in a hostel!

B&B Leonardo was clean, tidy and in a great location. It was within walking distance to everywhere central and if you're not a walker, it was just a few minutes away from the water-bus stop. It's also quite close a lot of bars/restaurants but far away enough from them not to be bothered by the noise. Breakfast was simple and self-service but nice (brioche, cereal, toast yogurt etc). Leonardo himself is also very helpful and has great local knowledge (being a local!).

There were a couple of things that I would pick up on such as the steep steps into the attic (and trying to manoeuvre them with a heavy suitcase) but we were forewarned about this. The shower in the attic was also quite small which was fine for me (as I'm also quite small) but people of an average-tall height mind find themselves bending slightly in the shower. One last thing was the problem of the key being difficult to fit in the room door which was particular hard to unlock. Other than these few niggling things, it was a perfectly pleasant stay and I would stay there again.

B&B Leonardo is in a great location. The Dorsoduro is a great area to stay in, it is close to everything but is far enough away from the crowded touristy areas so it is nice and quiet. The room we stayed in was quite large and quaint, the bathroom was on the floor below but was just for us and not a problem. Everything was clean and well maintained and we really enjoyed our stay.

Lovely and quiet, comfortable bed and nice clean bathroom (all private). Leonardo was charming and helpful, and was more than happy for us to leave our bags and stay about in the evening before our night train. Great selection for breakfast - I would DEFINITELY stay again and recommend to anyone! Well done Leonardo!

Room Tip: The first floor room is biggest but your private bathroom is downstairs (you get a key to lock it...

We spent a wonderful sunny week end in Venice and really felt we had a home from home at Leonardo's B&B. I communicated with Leonardo by text as our flight was delayed, and he got back to me promptly each time, arranging to meet us to take us to the B&B on arrival.

We stayed in the triple room which was very comfortable with a double and a sofa bed for our daughter. The whole house was very very clean, well maintained and equipped AND easy to find!

Breakfast is laid out early(8.00) ish and is cleared away at about 11.00 and you can help yourself to bread, cereal, toast etc anytime, as well as tea, coffee and juice. Leonardo also told us we were welcome to help ourselves to drinks in the evenings if we wished. We felt totally free to come and go as we wished and only saw Leonardo once more before we left. I chose this B&B as it was at the more reasonable price scale and had good reviews and we were not disappointed.

The only minor niggles were that our (private) bathroom was on the ground floor (the room was first floor) - not a major deal for us, but aware that some people might not be keen! Also, as others have mentioned, there appears to be very little soundproofing/ insulation between floors, so you are able to hear other people moving around the house, although again this didn't bother us unduly, but might if you were a really light sleeper!

Overall, a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend.

the garden that you see is the garden of the house infront of this hotel..the hotel looks very basic from the outside. but the owner ( leonardo) has done a nice job inside. breakfast is basic ( cereal, cornflakes) . you can help yourself as its all in the fridge. but finding this place was tricky. i will stay there again as its good value for money and its very clean inside and quite and also very near to restaurants and tourist spots.
we were there in sept and stayed for 2 nights. only issue was the aircond leaking.

There was another floor above us... and in the early morning you could hear ppl's steps and voices... so if you are cranky about sleeping... avoid it... otherwise EXCELLENT PLACE!!
