“The Perfect B and B for Us”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

The experience of staying in "Oceano Mare" exceeded our expectations. It was lovely staying in an area where Venetians live and to be connected to it through Nicola who was able to recommend places to eat and visit. The B and B itself was well equipped, tastefully decorated perfectly comfortable, very clean, with breakfasts offering a good range of food. Nicola himself was extremely helpful and agreeable, with a charming self-deprecating sense of humour . When we faced problems caused by a transport strike he was very active in helping us. It was reassuring to know that with his help we would find a solution----and we did. We will certainly return to "Oceano Mare". We have stayed in Venice many times----often in more expensive places, but this is probably the most appealing of them all.

Nice and calm neighbourhood, ideal when visiting Biennale, but within walking distance from centre as well. Nicola is very friendly and helpfull and meets you at Vaporetto to guide you to the B&B the first time. Rooms are very clean. Breakfast with coffee, tea, bread and cheese or marmelade, cake, fruit and yoghurt. We liked it a lot !!!!

We just spent 3 nights there, and enjoyed it very much! Nicola is great, very friendly, helpful, and funny, and does his best to make people feel comfortable and at home. Location is great: neighbood is quiet and friendly, very close to Biennale and the Gardens, 5 minute walk to a good grocery store and the vaporetti, 10 minute walk to San Marco, but still far away from the crowds.The facilities are small, but well appointed, nicely kept up, and a good breakfast is provided. Great value, and good place to spend some time in a beautiful city!

This B&B is a great find. The location is brilliant, a short walk to Piazza San Marco and yet just back enough from the main streets to get you away from the large tourist groups and tourist prices at restaurants and bars. Rooms are generous for Europe and have all that you could require including a few extras such as fridge, wardrobe and hairdryer.
The closest ferry stop of Arsenale is perfect for access from the train/bus station and is also a stop for the airport ferry and for the Number 1 ferry that travels up the Grand Canal.
Nicola is a wonderful host that will contact you before you arrive to arrange to collect you at the ferry and he is helpful in any way you require during your stay.
Very highly recommended B&B

Room Tip: Walk via the gates of Arsenal to a great coffee spot in the morning and for the evening, walk to Via...

Nicola was a wonderful host. We arrived pretty late at night, and there he was waiting to pick us up at the Arsenale, identifying landmarks to make sure we knew the way back for the next few days. He even insisted on carrying our luggage, was really thankful for that. His recommendations of places and food were good too - he was extremely helpful!
Simple breakfast - and really appreciated his gesture of leaving breakfast earlier than the usual time for us when we notified him that we would be leaving really early in the morning.

Rooms were good enough for us to rest well :) + there was wifi. The area is away from the hustle and bustle but it was easy to travel around, everywhere was quite walkable. Had an enjoyable time in Venice!

Nicola is such a wonderful host, making our four day stay even more enjoyable by being the perfect tour guide with all his knowledge. Even though we were delayed he picked us up at Arsenale, walking us to the B & B showing us helpful landmarks which eased us into our stay. The rooms were so homely, breakfast what a selection! The locality is in a quiet area close to the vaparetto, tourist spots, tasty restaurants. Thank you Nicola. Will certainly recommend this awesome place to all.

Room Tip: Easy access from ferry, light and airy, loved the windows!
