Our visit here is truly far exceeded our expectations. From the moment we arrived in Venice we were lost, maps are poor at best but you soon learn that's just the way it is, take it in stride, relax and have a good time. We called the B&B after trying several times to find their location even though it's centrally located near the bus station and the train station, not their fault by any means, they can't add a sign to the outside of their building since it's a B&B it's technically a house and.... added to being so overwhelmed with the beauty and the excitement of actually being in Venice we were just flat lost. Anyway to make a long story short Massimiliano one of the owners came and found us and personally escorted us to their inn...turns out we were only a few doors away, pretty funny actually. And that began our fabulous adventure at a truly lovely, warm and gorgeous B&B.
Please review the included pictures to get real idea of just how beautiful our suite was. Yes we paid for a suite and it was worth the cost. First class accommodations from the Murano chandeliers and sconce's to the marble bathroom, it was first class in our eyes.
We read many times that hotel rooms in Italy are small and ill appointed so walking through the 17th century door into our VERY large suite was truly overwhelming, simply put we loved it and hated to leave after our three day stay.
Breakfast was great, yogurt, crescents, various pastries, prosciutto, cereal, coffee (Italian of course, strong and the BEST!) sorry..... there are no ham and eggs, no egg McMuffin, if you want that kind of stuff, don't leave the US after all!
Great air conditioning, the bed was large and very comfortable, a little on the firm side which is exactly what we like and to our surprise it was very quiet all night until about 7am when the canal outside our window came to life, it is after all the "road" if you will and thats how goods get delivered etc....so get up and get going on your tours, you shouldn't be sleeping any later anyway!
Another of our hosts Stefano Vio is one truly lovely guy, so polite, so caring about their guests a true pro and has the experience to prove it treated us like royalty, what a wonderful guy.
You can probably pay less and definitely you can pay more but we cannot imagine any better Euro value than this fabulous B&B and if you don't like it there, sorry, just don't know what's wrong with you...maybe your one of those people who leaves an unfair and negative review because a lightbulb was burned out, seriously what some people can complain about is just unreal. The folks that run this place are absolutely invested in taking care of you like your family...as Massimiliano said more than once "if you're happy, we're happy" guess what he MEANS it, stay here you'll not regret it. We would return in a heartbeat without one second of thought! And yes we are gushing in our review...this place deserves it!
You'll soon learn that service in Venice is a little sketchy sometimes, you should know/learn quickly that if you want service you will need to ask...well push a little for it, it's just how's it done in this tourist driven place but NOT at this dreamy place, they can't do enough for you EVER....
