“Comfortable place to call home for a bit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

The location is excellent and the accommodations are very comfortable. Value for the money is very good. The rooms had individual climate control regardless of season. I was in the room with bathroom down the hall, and the bathroom was almost as large as the bedroom. The bedroom had a table for sitting and a chair for relaxing.

It's best not to think of this as a B&B in the traditional sense. There is no common space, so you probably won't meet your fellow travelers. And the hosts -- either Susanna or her assistants -- will meet you in the morning to bring you breakfast, which consists of coffee/tea, juice, fresh fruit, yogurt, cornetto (croissant with apricot jam inside), and a few other simple baked goods. Personally I like having a little protein like cheese, but the yogurt helped. But you won't see them again in the afternoon or evening, so get all your questions answered when you arrive or in the morning.

A quick note about laundry: they provide free laundry, which is a great plus, but they dry it by hanging it out on a line out of one of the bedroom windows, so unless you pick that bedroom they can only get to the line mid-day the next day. So assume that laundry dropped off in the morning won't be back until afternoon the next day. Also, you might ask them to use a little less detergent, since it was very heavily scented.

FYI you can hear people outside at the local restaurant/bar until around 11PM, if memory serves. You might want earplugs, but it wasn't too bad.

We just got back from a fabulous 1 week trip to Italy. Casa Gottardi is smack in the heart of Venice at a great location right next to the Rialto bridge. So literally, the second you've reached Venice, you've already seen one of its things-to-do.

The rooms are nice and spacious. We got a nice king sized bed (or maybe queen) and got greeted by Suzanna and her son. Her son actually gave us a big picture of Venice with tips and suggestions on things to do which was really helpful.

The breakfast was really good too with fruits and biscuits and water (which is a big plus) available all around the day.

One con that you might want to consider is that we did not see an air conditioning unit. I'm not sure if one exists, but since it was April, opening the windows was sufficient for us. If its one of the hotter months, might be a problem.

Overall, I'd recommend this place.

Dear Aarti, we would like to thank you for the kind review. We would just like to point out that each room is equipped with individually controlled air conditioning system. This system is positioned within the upper door of each cabinet and the remote control is placed on the desk. We regret that you have not used.
Arrivederci.

Our family of 5 stayed in December in 2 rooms. The rooms were very clean and spacious enough for us and our laugage. It was easy to find from the airport, a waterbus and over the Rialtobridge and believe me in Venice this is a big plus. Susanne was an excellent host very friendly and with a lot of advice on where to eat and what to do. A nice touch was her son inviting our boys out for a night in Venice. The breakfast served in our room was wonderfull.One small problem was the bar in the ally where the people was very noisy until late at night. Will stay here again when in Venice

You can't go wrong here. The place is easy to find, just off the Grand Canal near the Rialto Bridge. I arrived after midnight, but was greeted cheerfully, given a rundown of what restaurants were still open and a plate of cookies. In the morning, an enormous breakfast was delivered. The room was comfortable and spotless, and quiet at night. This is a small B&B with 3 rooms and no shared living room space, so it's not the kind of place for hanging out in. But, hey, you're in Venice! I was in the smallest room, which is a double, the other two are big enough for small families. The double room has a large, private bathroom across the hall. I prefer ensuite, but this was no problem. The staff are all genuinely friendly and knowledgable. Rooms are on third floor and have no views, but place itself is really a good base to see Venice from.

I stayed here with my mother on a recent trip to Venice. It is located in a street not far from Rialto bridge. We were emailed instructions on how to get there, which we followed precisely and had no trouble finding it at all.
The place is extremely clean, and Susanna and Eugene were so helpful and friendly. They let us use the washing machine, and keep a stocked fridge with drinks and snacks.
The breakfast is lovely. Fresh fruit, yoghurt and pastries every morning.
The only negative is the stairs. But Eugene helped with our really heavy suitcases (I always pack too much). So it wasn't an issue at all for us.
If/when I go back to Venice, I would stay here again!

We stayed here for 2 days in September 2012. Thanks to Eugene for making the stay lovely and suggesting the best places to dine out. The place is located just across the rialto bridge on opposite side of vaporette station and was beautifully done up. The place is located in a narrow lane lending it the old Venetian charm. Eugene was very helpful and explained to us the water transport system which helped us explore the beautiful islands of Morano and Burano.The breakfast was fantastic and we especially liked the biscuits and croissants with assortment of jams and honey. Would definitely recommend a stay here if you are in Venice.

This is a great little B&B near Rialto bridge. Its nice and neat and was a really good value in Venice. Every morning you get a great breakfast with fresh fruits, juice, coffee and breads plus you can get supplies for the day with free water bottles and juice. The only con (which didnt bother us at all) is that it is on the top floor with no elevator so may not work for everyone.
