The location is ideal whether arriving Venice by air, rail or bus. We took the Alilaguna Orange Line from Marco Polo Airport to the San Stae ferry stop which is a stone's throw away from the B&B, no bridges to cross! To get to the Santa Lucia Train Station or Pizzale Roma bus terminal take Vaporetto Line1 and you will be there in a few minutes.
This is not really a B&B per se since it doesn't provides any breakfast, it looks more like a room in an apartment one usally find in AirB&B. A welcome package of some biscuits, 2 buns and 2 small packs of orange juice are provided on arrival, plus some tea bags and a bottle of instant coffee that you won't want to drink in this land of Espresso!
The room is quite small with a mini kitchenette which has a fridge and microwave and a sink that doesn't works, so any washing will have to be done in the bathroom. A small foldable table is provided for dining but no cutlery are provided beside 2 mugs and wine glasses. No kettle is provided for "hygience" reason as posted on a piece of paper in the room which is laughable! Daily houskeeping is confined to just the room and setting of the bed, no washing of cups and changing of towels. No soap, shampoo or other toileries are provided and the exhaust fan in the bathroom is extremely loud, so don't turn it on in the middle of the night or everyone will be awaken!
Wifi was accessible from the room but it requies checking in to facebook every now and then, quite annoying.
Rialto Bridge is a short walk away and a little further on is St Mark Square, which can be reached also by Vaporetto abeilt a slow journey as it makes many stops along the Grand Canal. There are quite a few restaurants and bakery stores in the relatively quiet neighbourhood with a Coop supermarket nearby, and the Museum of Palazzo Mocenigo is right outside the B&B where you can buy the Museum Pass to skip the line at St Mark Square.
Venice is always busy and needless to say lodgings are expensive including this little B&B, as we contemplated on whether to stay in Venice or across in Venice Mestre or even Padova for the same or lesser price in a regular hotel, but to save the trouble in commuting we opted for this B&B which could have provided a little more for the price that it charges in my opinion.
The owner Nicola is a friendly guy and helped with the luggage up the narrow stairs to the room. Overall it was nonetheless a pleasant stay for us with a roof over our head for a few nights soaking up the atmosphere of Venice at a very convenient spot.
