We were 2 hours early and were lucky the housekeeper let us in. However, she called the innkeeper who said to hold our passports and he would meet us later. Reluctant to leave those behind, esp since we could not communicate AT ALL with the Italian hskper, I spoke to the innkeeper on the phone and said we would wait for him. He returned in the promised 30 minutes and all was squared away.
This place was INCREDIBLY hard to find! We were lugging our suitcases in the streets for quite some time. Frustrated, I waited while my husband went on a search. The other couple staying at the B&B said the same thing at breakfast. It is true the bus stop is close by. The B&B website states the wrong bus to take from Venice!!! The Venice driver tried to tell us that, but we figured how could the website be wrong? If you are coming from Venice, ask the bus driver for the best route to the piazza. Maybe they'll fix the website.
As for the room, ours was large. Very basic. I was chilly as there was only one sheet and a bedspread. I asked for a blanket for the second night. Wifi was not working. There is a computer to use in the dining area. Breakfast, fair at best. I suggest you go out to the street for a great coffee.
The B&B is above a restaurant/bar. It was incredibly noisy late into the night on the weekend when we stayed. Earplugs did not help. Thankfully, we were both exhausted from sightseeing so we eventually fell sound asleep.
I'd rate this 5/10. It was clean, but spartan for the price. Venice is expensive however and this probably was a fair deal for the area.
