Positive Reviews

Friendly, personal service

The staff at this guest house are also the owners, and therefore go out of their way to ensure travellers enjoy every aspect of their stay and feel very welcome for the duration. Guests find the service friendly and accommodating, even when checking in late at night outside normal reception hours, which are often very restrictive in Italy.

Convenient for train station

The guest house’s location just over five minutes’ walk from the central train station makes it a very convenient base for those arriving late at night or departing early in the morning. There are numerous restaurants, cafes and shops in the immediate area, and major attractions such as the Rialto Bridge and Piazza San Marco can be reached in less than 25 minutes by foot.

Useful facilities

The facilities such as the shared kitchen, guest lounge and laundry are highlighted as some of the most convenient features of this accommodation. Rooms are basic yet spacious and cleaned to a high standard, and the Wi-Fi is strong.

Negative Reviews

Basic breakfast

The complimentary breakfast included with a stay at this guest house is rather limited, with only pastry and somewhat low-quality hot beverages offered. Guests are quite disappointed in this aspect and do not recommend booking due to the convenience of included breakfast alone.

A shared apartment

The accommodation’s facilities are shared not only between guests but with the owners as well, which some guests find uncomfortable.

Poor value for money

Guests agree that there are better value accommodation options in the centre of Venice where standards are higher and prices are lower.
