Please MORE PILLOWS!
Matteo, the owner, picked us up from the water taxi stop and walked us to the Hotel. It's right next to the Venice Theater but its tucked into a quiet alley. They are incredibly helpful and accommodating, they were happy to print out our boarding passes for our flight home.
The toilet leaking all the night,but the repairman is very responsible and finally fix it up.
Very terrible experience here. 1.We stay two nights here.when we check in,the staff told me that we must change room at next day,still, the two rooms are not in the same building!!Our luggage very heavy,and there is no elevator,stairs are very steep!Its very ridiculous!!! 2.The staff finally arrange another room for us which won't be change.It's a really terrible room I've never live,you must climb extremely steep stairs to get there,and with our two big luggage!! 3.The room is a loft,and the upper floor is dark and horrible.It's a garret of this building.Some of the facilities in the room are not in good condition.The shower water is not hot,but the room is really cold.
Location -excellent-a stone's throw from San Marco square. Breakfast served by a lovely lady who couldn't have smiled more. Woken by gondoliers singing "O Sole Mio"
Room condition disappointing. Toilet cistern broken, large holes in flooring in both bedroom and bathroom. Bedding and towels quality poor- bedspread was dirty. Bedside lamps covered in dust. No toiletries provided.
Friendly staff, very accommodating. Fair breakfast. Good location.
No microwave & refrigerator for us to use. It would have been helpful.
Matteo was very attentive, he picked us up from the vaporetto stop (water taxi). The location was excellent, 5-10min walking to San Marco on the one hand and Ponto de Rialto on the other.
WiFi in the room doesn't work very well (but a minor problem when in Venice)
We have just stayed here for 2 nights and we were very happy with the location to everything. Very welcoming and helpful staff. The highlight was the singing gondolas passing by our window. Our reception level room was a little noisy in the early mornings but it didn't bother us as it's the sound of Venice daily life. A nice stay.
Canal, and all its activity right below our window. Neat old antiques in room. Despite the things we did not like, once we got settled in, we liked the place. I has real Old Venice character, and once we found it, it was rather convenient to San Marco Square, and the Grand Canal. It was fun watching the condoliers and there guests right out our window. It was neat being near the old opera house. I guess that I'd recommend it, even with the negatives.
Very hard to find when coming from the Vaporetto at the dock. Took us an hour to find it. It is operated more as an inn or B&B than a hotel. No regular desk hours. Entry level is unattractive, but interesting as an artists studio. Bathroom had an unpleasant smell.
Room was clean, location was difficult to find but very close to tourist attractions.
Breakfast was not very good and morning staff was not very friendly.
Location, just a few minutes away from San Marco.
Service. The girl preparing our breakfast in the morning needed more than 30 minutes to bring us coffee and stale rolls (she was busy arguing and shouting with a neighbour). Later she wanted us to leave the room before check-out time.
Great location. Croissant was very good.
Dry toast for breakfast. Danish would have been better. Did not like expresso and other choice was tea in a cup.
Location, real venetians house of 16 century.
Rooms look shabby and unkempt, and do not meet their price. However it can be said of many hotels in Italy. The administration does not wish to make elementary effort to make the necessary minor repairs. the result is a feeling of mild irritation from this attitude to customers.
The location was brilliant.we could talk to the passengers and gondoliers as they went past our windows!the staff were very friendly and breakfast brought to your room was a welcomed touch and set you up for the morning.The bathroom was in need of an refurb but was still comfortable.would definately go back
The location was great, 5 mins walk to st. Marks square. The wifi worked well. You could hear gondaliers singing throughout the day.
On arrival we were shown to a totally unacceptable room which was dirty, a mess and looked as if somebody had just moved out. Once we complained we were moved to a better room but still not what we expected. The pictures are a little deceiving. Cleanliness of the bedding was suspect and the duvet had no cover, just an ikea tag! Breakfast wasn't in the room as advertised. The shower door was broken which we reported but never got fixed. No view out of window.
The owner was wonderful. From our room we could hear the opera house as well as the gondola singers... amazing
The toilet needed to be manually flushed. Do not bring a lot of luggage here unless you hire a porter! Directions were not easy.
Great location and price. We had a room on the canal so we could watch the gondolas row by in the late afternoon which was lovely. Staff was also very friendly.
The room needs repair. The shower flooded and the toilet did not have a lid over the commode. The headboard was not attached to the wall so it kept falling on us all night. It's still a good location and price, just beware, you get what you pay for.
Good location, nice staff.
The hot water in the shower wasn't constant... it would alternate regularly with really cold water!! No elevator!!! There are a lot of steep stairs... really hard to take the luggage to the 4th floor...
The connecting room for family is ok but for friends share bathroom and toilet is has little problems. The area not clean and the building too old . It is "bed and breakfast", but the breakfast was too plain , oh well:) it is Venice after all!
Staff was very helpful and gracious.
Didnt warn us of stairs which were very difficult to manage with luggage, no elevator. Hot water was on and off, sometimes too hot, then too cold. Water pressure very weak so water just trickled.
The view and the lady who served breakfast
The whole place, two light globes out of about 20 worked. One t.v for two rooms. The shower was scalding. The stairs were steep and no lights along the staircase. The list goes on. Hard to find and staff not helping find the place.
Quiet location, very friendly and helpful staff. A most enjoyable breakfast and great coffee!
Location was perfect for visiting San Marco. Our Room had a nice little rooftop view.
A bit rustic.
enjoyed the adjoining room /fantastic view and breakfast delicious.both couples enjoyed there stay and would definitly return. location was perfect.
The staff were helpful and accommodating.
We got lost but after a phone call we were guided by staff.
Location of the bed and breakfast was great
Confusion in booking the rooms. We intended to book 2 connecting rooms as there were 4 of us traveling. When we reached the hotel it turns out we actually booked 2 rooms (each room with its own connecting rooms, so 4 rooms in total). We only stayed in one room and when we tried to get a refund on the other room, the hotel informed booking.com that we used both room which is not true. Prior to us booking, we even confirmed with booking.com regarding how many rooms we should book. Now we basically paid double for our rooms. The wording when booking connecting rooms is very confusing and the staff was not able or interested in helping us sorting this out.
