“We moved on after one night....”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We booked to stay for five nights at this B&B after reading generally favourable reviews on Trip Advisor. It comprises of units that are off an empty courtyard and did not have a manned reception desk or anyone on site during the stay. We arrived to find no one answered the bell and had to phone for entry. We were then in a courtyard with no one greeting us. We discovered it was necessary to call the manager or owner on our mobile (at our cost) for any contact. While clean, the room was very very basic with tiny single beds, crisp (exfoliating) towels and linen, and basic kitchen facilities. The tiny bathroom had the cleaner mop and bucket still in it and the shower was barely adequate. The TV only had one channel and wi-fi was not of sufficient strength to operate. The internal stairs (which were very steep) and hallways did not have automatic sensing lights which meant pitch black in the hallway until the switch was found by patting along the wall. We were visiting during chilly January and the radiator heater could not be turned up and using the extra bed blankets we were still cold. The basic breakfast was supplied for the week on the first day but there was no kettle to boil water. All in all, we left after one night. Why would we spend our precious Venice visit in such basic accommodation? We easily found four star accommodation for a cheaper rate than this was.

Good location, good price for when we went. Can't go wrong with free internet and breakfast for what it is worth. I would stay here again if I wasn't going to stay on the water. I would recommend staying here. Oh, we arrived late and they stayed for us even though it was much later than they usually stay.

We followed the directions which led us to the door of the hostel/room, we pressed ther bell but there was no answer and we had no phone signal so we were a bit stuck with our luggage.Our time of arrival on the booking form was 11.00am and we arrived about 12. Fortunately there were some English students in the adjoining appartment and they answered their bell and were very helpful in contacting the person manning the reception desk, who told us check in time was 2-30 but he would be there in 30 mins. When he arrived he told us again check in was not until 2.30,it would have been helpful if there was a sign on the door stating this but it just looked like the door to someone's house there was no indication that this was a B&B.
It would have been helpful if this was stated on the booking instruction. The room was OK but basic and was not ready for us to move in to until 3.30, so we left our luggage in reception.
We loved the location and we really enjoyed our stay in Venice but the accomoadation was disappointing and the booking in process and access to the room frustrating and for this reason we would not reccommend booking this B&B

Room Tip: would not reccommend this place

Just returned from a great week in Venice - stayed in the apartment on the first floor - very clean - desk only manned from 2 til 6pm but very helpful - breakfast basic, but plenty of shops nearby to supplement this. Great location - 5 minutes walk from the waterfront and 15 from St Marks' Square - plenty of good restaurants and bars nearby. Would definitely come back and would recommend this B & B to anyone wanting reasonably priced accomodation near the heart of Venice.

Room Tip: The apartment didn't overlook the canal.

This B&B is in a great location - very close to the main strip along the Venetian lagoon. When walking from the B&B backs towards the main strip, when you reach Salizada S.Antonin street, if you turn to the left, there is a nice coffee shop at the end of the road on the right-hand side. I don't remember the name, but we enjoyed going there each morning. The B&B does provide a reasonable breakfast of bread, jams, coffee, and juice. The room in which we stayed overlooked a canal, which was nice. And the room had a living room area, and a bedroom so there was more space than we expected. I would stay here again.

I stayed here last week. Great place and a fantastic location ,if you are looking for a quiet place, but still very central. Clean and comfortable room. We had our windows overlooking the quiet canal.You could stand there and see the everyday world go by! The breakfast was basic but the ground coffee was more then welcome! Sasha was helpful. The AC was a welcome surprise as it was really very hot. Just about ten minutes to San Marco on. When i return to venice i look forward to stay there again.

This was our 5th time in Venice and the 1st time we decided to go the B&B route. It was clean and comfortable and priced right. The room we had was on the a canal and was a perfect setting. The breakfast was very basic and for us it will always be memorable as my wife and I were having breakfast when the 2nd earthquake struck in N Italy. It was a 5.8 and centered an hours N of us. It was our 1st time and pretty scary.

Its no 5 star, but for us was comfortable and ok for our needs. Or bedroom was large and comfortable. The negatives were we had 2 single beds pushed together and the TV had one channel - Salsa Dancing, but we were not in Venice to watch TV so it did not bother us to o much.
The building its self is awesome and very Venetian and would stay there again.
