We've stayed in many places in Venice from B&Bs to the Danieli and we've not really found anywhere we've thought both the accommodation and the price were right for a return visit until the Residence Palazzo Odoni. The owner was friendly and helpful. The Coop supermarket, just behind the bus station, was great for supplies of tea/coffee and breakfast. The little kitchen with two rings, microwave, fridge and kettle was more than adequate. What really sold it for us was the huge living area which was beautifully Venetian ie mildly tatty but simply lovely. Three sofa's easily fit and a big dining table. One of the sofa's turned into a bed for our teenage son (which he said was comfy) and the curtains that partitioned the room afforded the right levels of privacy. I'm guessing at least one of the other sofa's turned into a bed too. Upstairs our small double bedroom was nice and clean with a good wardrobe and next door a good bathroom with jacuzzi bath.
The view of the canal was a lovely bonus. It's a nice area and hugely convenient for the bus and train station if you want to travel further afield. We always get a 5 day (boat) bus ticket so getting around Venice is not a problem - both Rialto & St. Marks are a few bus stops away so accessible but being here means local restaurants are cheaper and frankly more interesting.
Downsides ... the stairs up to the apartments are steep. The stairs in the apartment were steep too - this isn't the apartment for you if you have a mobility impairment. But then given Venice is a city of bridges and steps if you're able to get around Venice you can easily navigate these stairs.
All in all a lovely apartment, nice owner and a good price too. Thoroughly recommend it.
