Nice hotel in the middle of the town

Posted Jun 21, 2018
The hotel was great with friendly staffs. Room was clean and I felt very comfortable staying there. Getting there was easy, it's close to the Rialto water bus station and the map with directions they emailed me was very helpful. The location is great, right in the middle of the island so it's very easy to go sight seeing from and it's very close to St. Mark's square.

Cute guesthouse steps from Rialto ferry stop

Posted Jun 6, 2018
Great experience for our first two nights in Venice - first time in Italy. Riccardo was charming and welcoming. I'm so glad he took our bags up as it was 3 floors up narrow stairs. Building itself is 600 years old so I was impressed with how well it was maintained. Room wasn't large but it was comfortable. There was also air-conditioning. Windows opened into clean Venetian alley streets. Bit of a tight squeeze into the shower stall - I'm a regular sized person so it'd take some gentle coordination if you were 6ft and 200 lbs. You won't be disappointed with Lanterna di Marco Polo.

Ahhh Venice!

Posted May 24, 2018
Ricardo was looking for us and called to be sure we made the right connections from the train station. How comforting! We followed directions but stopping & looking straight ahead....he opened the door and said "____, you're here!" We were delighted. Our accommodation was a bit of a climb and I was concerned that Ricardo survived the delivery of luggage!! Guido saved the day by finding the lost cell phone. Wonderful. Thank you both. Oh yes...Rooms each named for a spice with engraved door plate. Charming.

Lots of stairs

Posted Apr 14, 2018
We had no view (wall), no air conditioning, lots of bugs that came through the windows. The bathroom to small especially the shower. The owner was very helpful. We did not have breakfast because 10£ seemed to expensive for 1 person.

Hi Lyne, first of all many thanks for your very good grade (4/5) Venice is a particolary city with a lot of small ways and one buiding infront of the otherone that are there from 500/600 years and one part of our building it's like that. This is Venice and you cannot make a comparison with other and modern city. About the breakfast cost: if usually your breakfast is only a coffe and a brioches ok you are right you will spend in each bar less than 10euro but if you just add a fruit juice 10 euro are not enough. Our breakfast as you know includes: coffee, cappuccino,tea, fruit juices, fresh bread, fresh fruit, fresh brioches, fresh milk,butter, jams,chocolate cream, various cereals, yougurt, cheese, ham, biscuits, rusks,crackers. About the bathroom let me disagree with you many Thanks again for your stay here kind regards

The 2 managers are simply amazing people and will go the extra mile to make you happy. Also nice people to have a short conversation with. Room and location is GREAT value for money in venice. (3 mins walk from Rialto bridge, 3 mins away from ferry station to go back to the train station, 10 mins away from s marco square)

owners are great guys

Great location. Be prepared to do some stair climbing as there is no elevator so the narrow staircase is the only way up. Small room and shower but clean and the owners are really nice, helpful guys. Breakfast for 10 euros more is pretty sparse...
