The location is superb

Posted Oct 31, 2013
Excellent location on waters edge, easy access to water bus and all stops. Excellent value for position but remember it is a b & b and therefore like someone's home. Perfect for our one night stay, friendly people and very comfortable bed. We had quadruple room and had views, not sure what views other rooms would have

Beautiful situation on Giudecca

Posted Oct 23, 2013
Pros: All things! The excellent breakfast was very generous and well-organised - everything silently laid out in the next room -before we were awake!
Cons: It was a shame that on this occasion we could not find hot water in any taps at 7.15am...
Location: Perfect location on the fondamenta a few minutes walk from the Palanca vaporetto stop.
Ours was just an overnight stay to be at the airport by 9.30am but our hostess was so friendly and helpful and the bedroom so elegantly attractive and spacious with views over the Giudecca canal that we were sorry not to be staying longer. Our room was in the apartment above the owner's apartment and whilst our bathroom was not ensuite, it was for our use only (we were given a key). The other two bedrooms were ensuite. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, the bed very comfortable, and, unusually, a decent lamp for reading on each side of the bed! The hostess told us the exact time we would need to leave in the morning, including the time of the vaporetto and the connecting bus to the airport. She volunteered to serve breakfast for us 15mins earlier than the set time

Decent but across the canal

Posted Oct 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
I wish I knew it was across the canal, sort of was a little bit inconvenient. The hotel was nice though, it was right on the water. The people working it were super nice. Standard tiny Italy bathroom and show but all in all it was a decent place.

Great location away from the main tourist area

Posted Oct 15, 2013
Pros: Cleanliness, comfort and position.
Cons: Nothing needed.
Location: Close by to very good restaurants and a vaporetto stop within 50 Metres. A much nicer pace than on the main island.
Really comfortable, clean and well located B and B with very helpful proprietors. Good breakfast. 35 steps up to the room might be a problem for some but is offset by a wonderful view out over the Giudecca canal. It was worth paying a little more per night to stay in Venice rather than having to negotiate a bus in from the mainland daily.

Postcard view !

Staying in Venice can be tricky if you have never been there. This apartment was such a great choice to wake up and have a breakfast with a panoramic view of Venice just 3 stops away to Piazza San Marco on bus service that runs 24/7. Room was clean with clean bathroom, bed was comfy and A/C and little fridge included ( pls, get better fridge - July is very hot ) ! You share dinning / lounge area overlooking Venice. Its a shame that they don't have A/C in dinning area. It should be there for the price. Breakfast was included but dissappointing ( coffee good but all other stuff was from supermarket prepackaged. If Anyone has food to offer, that is Italy and then this..Cheap. Wifi was included but should be running smooth in all rooms not just in dinning area. These days we all depend on internet and its just not enough putting cheapest consumer WiFi Router and call it Free WiFi included. Overall owners were nice, stay was pleasant. This was my 4th visit in 25 years and Venice is becoming too expensive for the quality of offerings. Eh, but the view...

In the dinning room there isn't A/C because it's a share room and you can understand some people don't like air conditioning. As regards breakfast all our guesses congratulade us on it, because as you know there are a lots of things to eat ( ham, or eggs, bread, biscuits, rusks, butter, marmelade, a slice of cake,yogurt, fresh fruits, conflakes) and to drink ( coffee, milk, tea, fuit juice, mineral water). Perhaps you don't know in Italy there is a law: every product served in a B&B must be prepackaged. Please inform you before castigate! As far as WiFi, at Cà Isabella it's free in every room, not only in the dining room as you affirm. At last : why don't you tell the price you paid per night at Cà isabella? You know well our price is the lowest in Venice.

comfortable stay

Very nice bed and breakfast. Hotel is only 2 minutes from the waterbus stop. Owner is very helpful in suggesting where to go and which bus to take. Highly recommended.

This is a room in a family home. They have converted the second floor to a hotel, and it is very nice. The room was clean. They served a large breakfast in a common room. Very hospitable.

Pleasant hotel.

Posted Jul 5, 2013
Pros: Location.
Cons: Refrigerator broken so nowhere to store food etc. no lift to get bags up to room.
Location: Central and easy to find.
Good directions given from both the airport and the train station, very easy to follow. However we were treated by a very pleasant lady who spoke no English which made it very difficult to explain that we were a party of three but the third person was not arriving till later on that night. When we went to pay the bill we also could not communicate what we wanted to do and had to wait till the owner returned at about 10pm. Overall though a very pleasant stay and hotel was central enough to get around Venice easily.

Not a very welcoming place at all

Posted Jul 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
My stay was very bad. The bathroom was dirty, the owners showed no warmth what so ever, no sense of welcome. For the first two nights I had no warm water, and had to shower in icy cold water. There was no canal view from our room:it overlooked dingy courtyard. You have to ride waterbus to get o Venice from Guidecca where the B&B was located. Waterbuses are very expensive, so that added at least 100 Euro (there were 3 of us for 3 days) that was not necessary to our cost. There was a restaurant/bar right below the property, people partied till wee hours, not quiet as described. I won't recommend this place.

Decent experience overall

Posted Jun 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
Our stay at the B and B was overall a good one. The location is quaint and nice as you are away from most of the hustle and bustle. There's a few shops and restaurants nearby and a nice hotel, the Hilton, nearby to visit. The room was decent. Refrigerator was provided and everything was as described. Good if you are out and about all day. Beds were ok but not the most comfortable. View is gorgeous of the canal. Bathroom was decent. Only downside is you have to walk out into the hall and the key was hard to work to lock and unlock. The wifi went out a few times, even with the owner's help. Communication was a bit awkward and unclear at times. The owners were friendly when asked for help. Overall a good experience.
