“Fantastic Find!”
Reviewed June 4, 2011

I stayed at Dorsoduro 461 for 5 nights in May and was totally satisfied with the accommodations, the location, the hosts, the food - everything. Francisco was a delight, always helpful and a great cook. I looked forward to reakfast every morning. Silvia was out of town while I was there so I only got to meet her briefly, but she too seemed lovely. The facilities were immaculate. I was traveling alone so had a small room with a samll shower and a small toilet area, but they were more than satisfactory. Even the mattress was comfortable. I wholeheartedly recommend Dorsoduro 4161 and look forward to a return visit.

Origianlly we found this accommodation on Tripadvisor and were assured by the reviews that it would probably meet our expectations. We were not disappointed. From making the booking the owners were communicative and welcoming. The location on Dorsoduro could not be more central, yet tucked away in a quiet corner, where local families live. Francesco and Sylvia were excellent hosts who will do anything to ensure that guests are comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent, with choice of breads, fruit, cereals, eggs, cheese and ham. The house is furnished in a traditional way, but the bedrooms are well equipped with kettles, fridge, TV, wifi. etc. This is comfortable and homely accommodation, and is well suited to travelers who find budget hotels are so often a disappointment. We will return.

We could not have asked for a better B&B situation for our first trip to Venice. Our goal was to find a B&B that felt like it was really a part of the neighborhood, and we found just that at Dorsoduro 461! Francesco and Sylvia were fantastic hosts (ask them about their fascinating restoration work!) and were very easy to work with in terms of coordinating arrival/departure. The house itself is adorable, and the room we stayed in was extremely clean and comfortable. Breakfast each day was a fantastic assortment of food, including Francesco's made-to-order eggs. The location is PERFECT, as it is on a quiet street, but only a couple minutes walk to the zattere or Accademia bridge. Thanks to our hosts' recommendations, we ate like royalty at local restaurants (special thanks to the Barbarigo for a wonderful birthday dinner!). We really can not recommend this place enough, and are only hesitant to share our experiences because we are afraid they will be booked solid next time we visit! Also want to mention that we are a lesbian couple, and this was not at ALL a problem.

Although we walked sround in circles as the door numbers are very different in Venice- the warm welcome at the BB made up for this. The room was great size, nicely decorated and best of all the breakfast was prepared to our liking in the morning. Great location, proximity to the grand canal and Guggenheim. Staff was extremely helpful, provided us with books and maps. Great stay!

We stayed in this superior Venetian B&B for 3 nights. What makes it 'superior'? The decor, including books in every corner, the delicious breakfasts and interesting conversations as well as the thoughtful room service made our stay memorable. The establishment is centrally situated - handy for the Accademia and the Guggenheim - yet quiet.

Just back from a 2 night stay in Dorsoduro 461 and would highly recommend it. There were no roadworks, the only noise we heard was a clarinet student from the music school opposite! There were mosquito blinds fitted so we didn't have a problem with them, and breakfast was a wide choice of cereal, toast, cheese, fruit and yoghurt, with fresh coffee served by Francesco, one of the owners.
The room was spotless and a tasteful mixture of period and modern furntiure and decor, the bathroom was newly fitted and very clean. The place is very quiet and relaxing, with only one or two other guests it is very safe and friendly. Francesco was around quite a bit, giving recommendations, lending guide books, etc, we really enjoyed our stay here!

This is a small B&B just a few minutes walk from Accademia, close to Peggy Gugenheim's museum and well connected with the vaporetti.

There are just a few rooms but they are charming with nice individual pieces of furniture. Clean and fairly spacious for Venice and for the price.

Nice breakfast in the morning - quite basic but a few different options every day.

Owners were a lovely couple who were friendly and helpful without being overbearing. Told us about a little festival on one of the islands which was an interesting alternative view of Venice.

Venice is enchanting by the way...
