“More than adequate”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Because of an airport strike in Athens we didn't arrive until 11.30pm. A phone call to Nanni and 5 minutes later she arrived at the waterbus stop to show us the way and despite the hour she made us a welcoming cup of coffee.
Nanni was helpful with advice and directions and made several phone calls on our behalf, she even did our laundry for us.
The room and bathroom were very clean and the bed was very comfortable.
The B & B is located 6 or 7 minutes walk from St Marks Square where you can find many restaurants or alternatively 3 or 4 minutes in the other direction there are also plenty to choose from - a great location.
Yes, there are 3 flights of stairs but we found them manageable.
All in all we had a great visit which was made all the more enjoyable by Nanni.

I had made a reservation on their seemingly sophisticated on-line reservation system almost two months in advance of my trip to Venice. A few days before departing on my trip, I contacted the hotel to confirm. At first, the hotel would not answer my calls which were well within their business hours. Then a woman answered, and after the greeting conversation, as soon as I gave her my name, she pretended not to hear me by saying "hell? hello?" and hung up and then would not answer the phone again. So, I had to e-mail them to confirm our reservation, and over email, she said that she could not find our reservation in her system (eventhough I was still able to view the reservation in their on-line system through the confirmation code). She said it was lost, and that she no longer had any rooms, but that she would make arrangements for us to stay at another place instead. This new place was not a hotel, so she could not provide a name, or the address before making a decision to stay at this new place, and she instructed us (two women traveling alone) to bring advance cash payment. Feeling very uncomfortable about this situation, we declined her offer to "help" us, as it was not helpful at all.

So, at the last minute, we had to find another reservation (in Venice in May where the busy season is just about to begin.) Fortunately we were able to find a reservation at another hotel, but at a much higher price. I am guessing that this hotel found some other people that would pay more than we had committed to pay them and went with other people.

In short, this is not a dependable place to make advanced reservation and would caution against relying on them.

This is a quaint little Italian B & B, in which you can tell you are in Venice. The room was delightfully furnished in tradition where we were staying. The owner, Nanni and her sister went beyond what would be expected of a B & B. They gave me detailed directions to get from the airport to the B & B and even met me at the terminal to escort me to the property. Breakfast was lovely and they arranged the best trip of our holiday, to Murano island for us, free of charge. This included a private taxi boat to the Island and our own personal English speaking tour guide around the factory, where we witnessed craftsmen producing their glasswear. On draw back was the 4 flights of stairs up to the room, but was worth it for the warmth of the welcome. Position of the B & B was also amazing for those who want to visit St Marks Square. You are literally a two/three minute walk away. We planned this trip on a very low budget and thought well we are only sleeping in the room, doesnt really matter what it looks like. We didnt expect much for what we paid (being one of the cheapest ones I found), but was amazed, not only excellent value for money, but excellent service, quality and cleanliness, with amazing location. Cant recommend enough.

Venice was our last stop during our thirty day vacation in Italy. I was pleased with all our lodging selections except Ca del pozzo bed and breakfast. First, the location is not in St. Marks Squre; instead it is located in an old, decaying piazza or campo called San Mauricio. Just a word about garbage collection: in the evening the residents of surrounding apartments take their plastic bags to the center of the campo leaving them on a broken down fountain. Second, the building itself, combination of hotel, apartments and b&b with a dirty foyer off an alley. Third, the climb to the 'third' floor. However, with twenty foot ceilings the third floor is equivalent to what would be the fifth floor in today's construction. Fourth, the noise at night making sleep impossible.
I would never recommend this b&b. Fifth, the exorbitant price of 80 euros per person, per night in cash. Makes me wonder . . .

In Venice please expect exactly what this city is able to offer: it is a venetian spirit, not a town. To be in the middle of this marvel you must accept old houses, hidden-dark streets, to be more or less in an other century. This B&B is a room in a house, as many are in Venice, each level being a B&B or a residence.No AC, no luxury, everything is BASIC. BUT, the location is great. Safe and quiet area, excellent restaurants in the same building or at the corner. WIFI free, breakfast in the room, italian style and... very important: the owner is so special, Aneliise: she waited us in the water bus station.

We recently stayed for 2 nights. The room was clean and reasonably well equipped (lots of clean towels, hair dryer, shower gels etc), the shower worked well and we had a fridge in the room to keep water and drinks cool. The hotel itself was well placed for St Marks Square, but set back enough to be quiet, and was only a short walk from the nearest Vaporetti and Alilaguna stop.

Breakfast wasn't exciting, but it was perfectly adequate (very good coffee), and was eaten sitting outside in a nice outdoor area. The staff were friendly and helpful - I had a minor crisis with broken spectacles, and the gentleman on reception kindly found tools to repair them for me. We would go back again.

Our family of 4 stayed 3 nights in the dorm room, which was cheap and adequate but provided no breakfast, no towels, and required cash payment (easily done with ATM's around). And it's a LONG was up the stairs! Annalisa was very nice and did arrange a free water taxi to a Murano glass factory tour (you need to buy your own vaporetto ticket back). And the location is very good. But there is no air conditioning or window screens, so we had to deal with street noise (usually past midnight) and got all kinds of bug bites (didn't seem like mosquito bites, though we heard some of them whining). Not great for light sleepers.

The place is also not staffed 24 hours, which was an issue for us both arriving and departing. We decided to forego being met at the vaporetto stop (saving our vaporetto tickets for later) and just walked from the Alilaguna stop. Not a bad walk, but no one was there when we arrived. Annalisa left a note with a number, but no luck reaching her. We were lucky to catch someone leaving the building so we could put our luggage in the courtyard and go to dinner--otherwise we would have been stuck waiting for hours or dragging our luggage to dinner. Also, I forgot a bag in the room on our way out to an early morning Alilaguna ride back to the airport. With no staff there we had to bang on the door for 10 minutes and wake up an unfortunate fellow guest who let us back in--otherwise we would have been stuck again!

So you can save some money and make it work, but next time I'd probably spring for air conditioning--or maybe someplace further from San Marco (Venice is just not that big)--for the sake of a good night's sleep.

Room Tip: The room closest to the reception desk seemed very nice and off the street, so probably quieter.
