A nice & huge room in an interesting neighbourhood
Posted Jun 28, 2015 on Hotels
The B&B host lives in the same apartment and we had the room at the other side, a huge and clean room with tasteful deco and a nice balcony. The bathroom is shared but we pretty much had it all for our use when we were there. The B&B is about 15-minute walk from Piazzale Roma so it's convenient if you arrive by train but you have to cross 2 bridges. If you don't want to walk that far with your suitcases, you can take watertaxi 5.2 or 4.2 and get off at Guglie then it's a short walk from the pier.
The B&B is in an interesting neighbourhood with lots of shops and restaurants but it's about 25 minutes walk to St. Marco Square which didn't bother us because we could walk slowly to admire all the lovely buildings in Venice, and while we were walking we came by a concert hall and went there 2 evenings to watch 2 shows.
The host was very nice and helpful but during our stay he had other business to deal with so we didn't see him much but he was always accessible by phone - we could use the landline at his apartment to call him.
