Our first stop on our trip to Italy, we found our way to this bijou guest house, hidden away in the streets of a quiet neighbourhood. After much research, this place ended up being the perfect choice. The area is fantastic, being within a very easy stroll to the Ca' d'Oro vaporetto stop and some handy shops, yet far away from the crowds. Entering at the rear of the house through the peaceful garden (a nice spot to check emails and have breakfast in the morning), the setting is charming -- in an gorgeous spot overlooking a small canal, with a little bridge out the front. It's so picturesque, a wedding party came to take photos on this very spot! Once over the bridge, you can walk down to nice strip of restaurants and bars right on a quiet canal. And the Rialto market is easily accessible via a gondola "ferry" service nearby, which runs backwards and forwards across the Grand Canal. The room itself was very comfortable, and lovely (ours was on the first floor), bathroom spotlessly clean and well fitted-out. The bed was one of the most comfortable on our trip, and the room even had a bar fridge. Mattia was the perfect host, giving a lot of time to find out what your plans might be, and very helpful with his advice -- taking into account our interests with his suggestions. Please note that this is a guest house, so it's not manned at all times, which may not suit everyone. If I'm ever lucky enough to return to Venice, I'll stay here again ... We loved this sweet little place. In my opinion, 3749 Ponte Chiodo's rating should be much higher!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- As our guests write: "A home away from home. Quiet, clean, convenient and very welcoming. Excellent location off the beaten track but still close to everything, located in not touristic and alive Cannaregio's district. If you are looking for lavish 4/5 stars Hotel with huge rooms furnished with fake baroque golden furniture please move on. If you visualize small bridges crossing the little canal outside your window, vine covered walls surrounding a patio and small garden and cappuccino every morning, then this is the place for you! The rooms are cozy and comfortable, their furniture original antique and well refurbished... Remember this is an old, Venetian home. No gyms. No pools. But a nice patio to enjoy breakfast or an evening glass of wine and cheese. You may also have the opportunity to meet some nice people from almost anywhere. The Venetian owner suggests local small restaurants and hidden itineraries through the wonderful unknown Venice". ... more less
