Location: barely 3-5 minute walk from Rialto bridge so fantastic location and very quite away from hustle and bustle but not far away from it. Room: we had a 3 person room, one double bed and one single. All comfortable and clean. There was a small leak under the bathroom sink but it didn’t make a huge mess or danger. Breakfast: included, was simple but nice and enough to get us started. Staff: absolutely brilliant, I’ve been travelling throughout Italy and the staff here were the best. I had a family crisis and they went out of their way to help and gave me use of their phones, computer etc. Maybe a little too expensive for it’s worth but still a great place and would stay again.

Quite old-school, but cosy and comfortable room. Location of this B&B is absolutely amazing for its price - nearby Grand Canal. Reception lady speaks in English, but also in Russian. Breakfast - croissants, marmelade, butter and hot drink - coffee, chocolate, tea,.. Wifi for free, well working.

My husband and I stayed here in May 2018 and we loved it. The location of this hotel is amazing. You step out of the hotel, turn right and you're right by Rialto bridge and tons of restaurants. When we arrived at the hotel, someone greeted us via Skype on a computer at reception and there was no one else available. Our room (no4) was very spacious consisting of a double bed and a single bed. The double bed was actually 2 single beds put together which I find very annoying as my husband and I cannot even sleep next to each other properly. There were parts of the floor in the room (particularly one area) which was very damaged and looked like it needed to be repaired ASAP. It is a hazard and could hurt someone as it is right by a step so can be overlooked. The bathroom, however, was maintained well and kept clean (except for the shower tray which had mould growing on the sides). The WI-FI never came up on our devices and so we had to use our own data the entire time. One of the windows in the room did not close properly and that made us extra wary as the safety deposit box was too small to fit even a small laptop. Venice is said to be quite safe though. Having booked this hotel with breakfast included, I have to say I was VERY disappointed with what they had to offer. Breakfast according to them was a couple of croissants and that's it! Nothing else, not even tea. Someone is actually available in the morning who brings the breakfast to your room, which I found even more bizarre. Our return flight was very early in the morning and we tried to contact someone via Skype on numerous occasions to find out how to check out as someone definitely would not have been there at that time. However, each time we called there was no response so we left the key inside the room and left for the airport in the early hours of the morning, Venice itself is a beautiful city and made everything worth it as we were only using the hotel to sleep at night and change into something for the evening from our day attire. If you are completely not fussed about where you stay and will prefer to eat breakfast outdoors then I would recommend this hotel based on location solely.

Not worth the money paid. This property advertises as a hotel but it is not a hotel, it is an airbnb. Usually in a hotel you have a person at the front desk to assist guests with their needs and concerns; this was not the case at this property. Next day the housekeeper seemed very mortified for the inability to help us. Please refer to the photos taken of the room I occupied and judge for yourselves if this is worth 296 euro for the two nights I had to bear with this. This property also advertises WiFi included but in reality, not only there was no WiFi at all in the room, it is so isolated that there was not even phone signal, which means I was 'incommunicado'. If there had been an emergency, I would not have been able to reach anyone at all. There was never any answer on phone numbers given. Sister hotel did not acknowledge being part of the same company. The room was very hot, but we were advised that air conditioning was not to be turned on till May 15. I really don't understand how the Italian National Tourist Board allows the owners of this property to operate under such conditions.

Upon arrival we checked in via the sky or check in on the front desk. The employee was very helpful and spoke excellent English which was useful given neither me or my partner spoke Italian. We were told what room ours was and told the keys were inside. The Wi-Fi did not reach our room (room 2, straight opposite the staircase) however this was only a minor set back. The central location was amazing and so cheap given that fact, the privacy was also very nice being able to come and go as we pleased was pleasant and made it feel like our very own little place. The breakfast was basic yet enjoyable and was filling enough to see you through to lunch. The lady who serves it was very pleasant and friendly. All in all great value for money and most definitely somewhere I would stay again.

Location is Fantastic i.e. near Rialto Bridge however service & room quality isn't worth the room rent.I second all the reviews detailing out overall experience at the hotel w.r.t front office managed through Skype after 2pm & when internet,AC stopped functioning we didn't get revert on the message left.This was quite frustrating & we booked this room at a premium considering room service will be good as we were travelling with a one year old baby.

This hotel has only a few rooms, and it is very close the Grand Canal and Ponte di Rialto bridge. It has no rooms overlooking the Grand canal. POSITIVE Close to Water Bus SAN SILVESTRO drop off / Embarkation (1 minute walk) Very large Rooms Large Bathroom Free WiFi The room was clean Air Conditioning Quiet NEGATIVE The beds are WAY too hard The shower has no water pressure WiFi is slow Air Conditioning is very slow to cool the room down The room has a Venetian decoration. When we arrived at the hotel, we checked in with someone over Skype. There is a computer screen in the lobby, and someone welcomes you on the screen. We liked it! First time that we saw that! The main entrance of the hotel was only a minute walk form the Water Bus SAN SILVESTRO drop off. When you arrive at the main door of the hotel, you got to ring the door bell. The Grand canal is only a 5 second walk from the main door. There are many restaurants close to the hotel, along the Grand Canal and in the streets nearby. The morning after, there was a nice lady that got our breakfast ready (see my photo). Don't expect anything too fancy in the room. Anyway, you'll be spending most of your time outside. To get to this hotel, take Water Bus No 1 and get off at San Silvestro drop off. Once you get off the boat, walk straight ahead for 15 seconds, then make a right when you fist have a chance. Walk in the underground passage, then go to the building right facing you. The hotel will be on your right hand side above the pub. The entrance is in the alley on the left hand side of the building with the pub. Please note that Venice is divided in districts. The hotel is located in the "San Polo District." In Venice, you don't look for street names when looking for a building, you are looking for the "door number." Closer to the Grand canal are smaller numbers. So don't walk too far from the water bus drop off. Venice is like a labyrinth! It could be very easy to get lost.

If you’re thinking of booking this hotel I would definitely think twice. My girlfriend and I stayed here and had a pretty terrible experience. We are generally incredibly easy people and don’t complain about much. We’ve roughed it all over the world but this was something else especially given the amount of money we paid for the room. First off, the entire check in was done via Skype, which we thought was a bit strange. We were told we were staying in room 1 which is right next to the front door. It honestly felt like we were in a damp dungeon. The windows don’t open properly so there is no air or light in the room. The room was incredibly old and didn’t seem clean at all. We even found a pair of shoes underneath the bed that must have belonged to a previous guest. The air con in the room also had a terrible leak and there were puddles of water on either side of the door. When we complained we were basically told that there is nothing that can be done and to use the towels to mop up the water every day. The hotel advertises free wifi but it didn’t reach our room, which was incredibly frustrating as we had work that needed to be done in the evenings. This meant we had to sit on the first floor to use the internet every day. The hotel only has 8 rooms and 7 of them are on the first floor. These rooms seemed much better than our room but are all triple rooms and cost more. We soon realized that there is never anyone at the front desk except for one lady that serves croissants and coffee in the morning. When we asked if we could contact the manager to discuss our issues and possibly move to another room we were told that they do not want to be contacted which should really give you an idea of how the hotel in run. We sent multiple emails and didn’t receive one reply, which was incredibly frustrating. On the first night we were there the electricity tripped and there were about 10 guests outside the hotel at 11pm trying to contact the manager to get assistance. When we eventually got through to the managers after hours number the first question he asked us was ‘which one of us did something to the electricity’. This really isn’t something that guests should have to sort out and there should be someone on site or at least close by to assist in situations like this. The only positive was the location. The hotel is really close to the Rialto bridge and is a nice central point in Venice to explore from. I would seriously recommend looking into other options of hotels as there are definitely better options.

My wife and I stayed here May of 2017. First impressions were rather disappointing and it just got worse from there. The hotel itself was a bit difficult to find. We had to use google maps to find it once our water taxi dropped us off. If it wasn't for google maps we would have been wandering around aimlessly for quite sometime, as the water taxi operator gave us the wrong directions to the hotel. Not the hotels fault here, but anyhow, once we found the hotel and were buzzed inside we found no one at the reception. Only a computer monitor that eventually called us using Skype as we stood in the small reception area wondering how in the world are we checking in. The woman that called us using Skype had a video chat with us and briefly explained our room number and that keys were inside and to call back using Skype if we had any questions. This is a first for us. Never have I used Skype as the only introduction in a hotel reception. We noticed immediately that our AC was inoperable. We used Skype to call back the woman we spoke with and she informed us a technician will arrive the next day. The technician never arrived throughout our entire stay. When we awoke the next morning, we were greeted by a rather rude Italian woman now sitting in the small reception area. We explained to her the AC was inoperable and she scoffed at us and explained that they knew it had been inoperable for a while and clearly there were no plans in place to fix the issue. She kept raising her hands as to say, "Don't talk to me about this," and literally said, "Talk to my boss tomorrow, don't talk with me about it." This was very frustrating at this point as we barely got any sleep at all the night before due to the high humidity of the May weather in Venice that had us broiling in our room. The AC was never addressed throughout our stay by any type of maintenance technician, nor did anyone seem to care that it didn't work. When we told her we would rather go out for breakfast than have the included breakfast offered by the hotel, she became quite rude and disrespectful, shaking her head at us and repeatedly asking if we were having breakfast at the hotel. I'm sorry, but the less time I can spend inside this ridiculous place the better. Seeing as we never had properly working AC we had to keep our bedroom windows open hoping for a breeze to circulate the air inside the room. This created a separate issue as right outside of our window is a small square that the tiniest noises resonate loudly in. People walking, whispering, talking at normal volume, cats fighting, laughter, etc. These were among the many noises that kept us up throughout the night as a result of keeping our windows open due to the inoperable AC. There were other issues we had with this hotel but I will not put them here. I feel this is quite enough to paint an accurate representation of our stay. Never again would we ever book this hotel. An absolute waste of time and money as it made our trip to Venice unpleasant. After a long day of walking the streets of Venice the last thing you want to walk "home" to is something like this. Do not book this hotel.

First of all difficult to find. In a alleyway adjacent to a bar. So loud music at night. After 1pm check-in is done via a Skype interaction. I was horrid to find holes in our concrete floor with loose pieces considering I had a 2 year old with me. Room was fairly clean apart from dust on chandelier and behind bed. Very tiny old shower cubicle. Bathroom basin had slow drainage so water accumulated. Bed sheets had hair on them. Blanket with holes in. Breakfast Lady initially not very welcoming but managed a smile later. Good coffee and croissants served in room. Nothing else for breakfast. Good point was that the place was always warm although our electricity went out on our last night without any means of contacting the staff. Place has ALOT of room for improvement.
