My girlfriend and I stayed here recently and were very impressed.
There is a B+B and an apartment, they are in different areas of the city, we stayed in the B+B which is about 5 minutes walk from the Rialto Bridge and about 25 minutes or so walk from St Marks square, its also very close to the Rialto Markets Waterbus stop.
Booking was very smooth and Alessandro (who speaks excellent English) was very helpful. He told us the best way to arrive, gave us directions and we were met at the waterbus stop and walked through the maze that is Venice to the B+B. I would recommend this as trying to find your own way around unless you know Venice can be ‘an experience’.
We had a room on the second floor with a jacuzzi bath / shower, the room is comfortable and spotless, it has towels, hairdryer, soaps etc. Make sure you find out how to use the Jaccuzi from Alessandro. The bed is very comfortable. There are some noises at night but you are probably never going to get away from that in this city, its nothing to detract a good nights sleep though.
Breakfast is served from 7.45 and consists of pastries, yoghurt, cheese and fruit. Its very tasty, washed down with freshly made coffee. On Sunday breakfast was served an hour later.
Alessandro will give you plenty of recommendations for restaurants, draw you a map and try to book you a table if you want.
We had a couple of tiny issues but both could be put down to the language barrier. I would recommend this B+B to anyone wishing to stay in Venice, its centrally located, the room is excellent, the food is very good and Alessandro is a great host with plenty of knowledge of the city and a willingness to help.
