Great location, friendly staff

Posted Jun 5, 2016
Pros: Location, staff
Cons: Have a list of things to do in Venice.
Location: Venice is a walkable city. Just get lost on the streets and enjoy!
Venice is an amazing city. Our stay at San Giacomo made it even better. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They allowed us to leave are bags during the day because of a late evening train ride. This allowed us to enjoy another great day in Venice. The directions to the hotel are easily followed but make sure you follow them. There is a short entry into a passage that you walk through. Don't be concerned about walking through it. The room was spacious for our family of 4 and the breakfast was good. Don't expect American portions in Europe.

Quiet, hidden away amongst zig zag streets

Posted May 14, 2016
Pros: Quiet and spacious.
Cons: Let people know that it is up two flights of steps and is unlabled. There is a folding wooden chair on the landing outside the B&B door.
Location: Walking distance from some nice little less-touristy restaurants.
We were given extensive directions to get from the bus station to our B&B. Unfortunately, we never found the streets referenced in our directions. Our "seven minute walk from the bus station" took us about an hour and a half! Our GPS helped only minimally, as the address given on the Expedia listing showed 1147 San Croce - unfortunately, the WHOLE area was San Croce. This was not the street we needed. Eventually we learned that we needed Ruga Vechia, and then we got a little closer with the GPS. It still told us "you have arrived at your destination!" while we were several blocks away, so that was confusing as well. Getting in to the room once we found the B&B was also challenging. We rang the door bell repeatedly, with no response. Eventually, another resident came out and we were able to get inside. We went up and down the stairs, trying to find our room or a lable indicating the owner's name, to no avail. We didn't have a working phone so eventually, my spouse got brave and ventured outside to find someone who would lend us their phone - which she found quickly. She got hold of our hostess, who then opened the door, right beside us where we were waiting on a tiny landing of the third floor. It turns out our hostess was vacuuming and didn't hear our repeated ringing of the door bell over the past 45 minutes The room itself was very spacious. There was only one other couple the first day, so we had a "private" bathroom for two days, then it returned to a shared one.

Pros: Trevligt och personligt med vänligt bemötande.
Location: Bra central läge om än dock något svårt att hitta.
Bra frukost och service, perfekt om man bara behöver övernattning. Bra läge och bara några få gränder till central läge.

freundliche Pension

Posted Feb 16, 2016 on Hotels
Das B&B ist die 1. Etage eines alten Hauses, Gemeinschaftsbäder mehr oder weniger so wie sie von den vorherigen Wohnungen übernommen wurden (70er Jahre, kein Luxus aber OK), Zimmer sind recht geräumig mit alten Möbeln, Inhaber sehr freundlich

Enjoyed our stay in a large room with friendly owner and all we needed. 10mns walk from railway station and to Rialto bridge, quite at night.

Lovely B&B

Posted Dec 7, 2015
Pros: The decor was especially nice.
Cons: Check in.
Location: Close to everything.
This was the best B&B we stayed at in Italy. The only issue was no one was there to let us in when we arrived, and we had to wait in the cold for an hour. We had been asked our time of arrival in advance, so this was disappointing. The breakfast was amazing (cereal, bread, coffee, juice, yogurt, fruit) and the room was lovely.
