I can't gush enough about Mae's B&B. From the start, our communication with them was fast and informative. They are relatively a short distance from the Centraal Train Station, but having walked it with our bags, I'd probably recommend a taxi just for comfort reasons. We were met by Milo and taken to our amazing room and apartment about a block away from their main headquarters. Just let them know what time your train, plane etc... arrives and what time you think you'll arrive at their headquarters so they have someone to meet and greet you.
Our room was beautiful. The building we were in took 3 years to renovate and they created an oasis of luxury for B&B prices. At 125 Euro per night, our room was big, our bathroom was a spa with a 2 person bathtub and separate glassed in shower with rainshower head. Just delightful. We had 24 hr access to their kitchen and main living area which were beautiful. If you wanted to cook you had access to everything. Breakfast was included was a very deluxe continental spread. Fresh fruit, fresh breads and pastries, meats, cheeses, hard boiled eggs, coffee, juices. Absolutely delicious and anything leftover from breakfast was fair game in the fridge at night! I had a bowl of fresh fruit after a night out and it was wonderful.
Lastly, Milo offered us a free app we could download to our iphones that was programmed with maps back to the hotel, restaurant & activity recommendations and a way to quickly contact someone at Mae's should you need them. It was really a tourists dream app. Hotels in Venice should get together and do this. It made wandering around great and we never felt lost. ,Again, I can't say enough great things. I am only sad I did not get to meet Ken & Vlad who are the proprietors of Mae's. We will definitely go back and hopefully meet them next time!
