“Great Location”
Reviewed June 14, 2012 via mobile

The apartment was clean with a full shared kitchen but with our own bathroom, although entry to the bathroom was via a short common passageway. Breakfast is basic but adequate, Fabio snr is most accommodating but struggles with the English language. We bought a 72hour tourist ticket at the first vaporato stop which proved invaluable and we highly recommend this way to get about but don't forget to validate the ticket very time you take a trip otherwise you will have to pay a fine. The canal view from our bedroom was quaint but a bit noisy first thing in th morning if the window is open. The best thing about this place is the location and the readable price for Venice which is notoriously expensive.

We just stayed 4 nights in May 2012. Excellent location in the heart of the city, close to St-Marc, alilaguna stop, vaporetti, but without tourist husstle, pedestrian traffic is local. Large room, private bathroom close on the same floor, large and with a shower. Very, very clean and well maintained building. Very quiet (no more DHL), normal noise and traffic in the morning as in all the cities - feeling happy to be able to have a glimpse at the Venice'real life from the window. Very good value for the situation. Fabio and his parents are very welcoming (good addresses for restaurants, luggage storage the last day, have verified the hours for alilaguna, etc0. We will comeback.

My daughter and I stayed two nights at this B&B. We emailed ahead that we would be late arriving.
We were graciously greeted by the proprietor and shown to our room. It was modern and clean.
The bathroom is just a few steps across the hall. We were quite comfortable. From other reviews, we knew that the location was on a canal that could be noisy in the mornings. We did not find this to be a problem. It was just part of the Venice experience. The kitchen area was stocked with the basic things needed for a small breakfast. We were within walking distance to just about everything we wanted to do and see.

Stayed two nights, but our flight was delayed by 9 hours, so we arrived around midnight the first night. Had some difficulties finding the place in the dark, but once we arrived, everything was great. Yes the noise started early right outside of the window, as some mentioned, but it worked toward our advantage, because we only had one day for sightseeing, therefore wanted to get up as early as we could. Yes the communication was hard as the family didn't speak much English, but we weren't looking for much help anyway since we found everything we need online using their wifi. Didn't use the A/C because (mid September) the weather was perfect to sleep with the windows open. Can not emphasize enough about the location. Definitely will return and stay longer the next time.

This little B & B is great. It is practically new. We hired two rooms: one for our kids and one for my husband and I. In the end we had the B & B for ourselves. It was very clean and everything worked perfect. Breakfast was self service with everything to start a good day.

Its location is perfect: very close to principal attractions, to good restaurants and to the vaporetto to move around Venice.

Based on the reviews here, I was very excited to stay here with my girlfriend in our first trip to Venice. Unfortunately, we were plagued with a couple of things that might have just been some bad luck, but I still have to mention a few things, good and bad, to make sure people know what they are getting into.

The Good:
- Location - It is in one of the best spots in Venice, in that you are on the canal, close to a couple of taxi locations, and you are walking distance to all of the major tourist spots (St. Mark's, Rialto Bridge, etc.).
- Staff - A small family lives in the same building and they are very nice and helpful. Everyone we spoke to knew very little English though, so the conversations were quite difficult in trying to get recommendations for anything.
- Living Area - The place is essentially an apartment with three bedrooms. It would be perfect for 2 couples or a family if you could rent the whole place, because you can use the fridge, stove, etc. for whatever you want. But, if it is only a couple, it feels awkward if you are sharing the space with people you don't know.
- Cleanliness - The place is very clean and well maintained. We didn't even have to do any of our dishes or anything.
- Amenities - This one is tough to say if it's good or bad, so please read below on our personal experience. There is wifi (if it's available) and the A/C is cold (as long as it's working).
- Value - Based on the location and what you get for it, it is probably the best bang for your buck you are going to get in Venice. Venice is not the cheapest place to visit in the first place, but you probably knew that before getting this far anyway.

The Not So Good:
- Location - Be careful what you wish for here, as the canal view is great, but no one here mentions that this apartment is directly above a DHL (shipping) location that uses the canal. And if you know anything about a shipping location in Venice, they are going to be active EVERY morning at ~6:30 AM with boats and cranes going, etc. Basically, it sounds like construction right outside your window first thing in the morning. So, in other words, don't plan on sleeping-in, unless you bring earplugs or are a very heavy sleeper.
- Separated Bathroom - Please be aware that your bathroom is NOT connected to your room. You will have to walk out of your room and down the hallway to get to your bathroom. It is yours and you have your own key, but this was a big deal for us because we would really have liked a bathroom directly connected to our bedroom.
- A/C - Unfortunately, we have the worst luck and the A/C broke on our first night there. It was in the 80's every day during our 4 days and it wasn't fixed until our last night. They did what they could to help us (they even went out and bought us a fan for our room), but it was still quite a disaster. And since we had to leave the windows open all night, we did not get any sleep, since by 5 AM the birds are chirping loudly and by 6:30 AM there is basically construction going on right outside your window.
- WiFi - There was wifi, but it only was working for 1 out of the 4 days we were there. This wasn't a major impact to us, but to some this would be an issue.
- Bed/Pillows - Something small, but the pillows were the flattest I've ever slept on and half the bed was very hard, while the other half was pretty comfortable. Might not be a huge thing to some, but I've just been spoiled with a really nice bed and pillows at home.

Looking back at this and realizing that our experience was different than most would be, I would still probably recommend it if you can rent the whole place, but just be very aware of what you are getting into.

Owners welcomed our family of 4 (with 2 teens) and made it easy to arrange and arrive for our 2 night stay at this lovely appartment. Set up was perfect for us - large bed in one room and 2 twin beds in the other. With air conditioning, we closed windows to block out mild sidewalk and canal noises at night and early morning. Worked fine like that. As described in other reviews - crispy clean, updated, and attractive spaces. Hosts were very accomodating with suggestions on restaurants and other travel details. Interesting to learn that the owner's grandfather built the building.
Great Location - close enough yet far enough from St. Marks and the canal stop.

Room Tip: They do have wifi with password access
