This B&B should be called Sandra Bed and BREAKFAST! The star of the show is definitely breakfast. If you've been staying in Europe for a while before you arrive in Venice, this breakfast is particularly exceptional. Sandra goes way beyond the typical Italian breakfast of a croissant and caffe. Sandra makes amazing fresh baked goods for each morning and there were no repeats during our stay. The fresh, warm bread, hot pastries as well as yogurt, fruit, cereal and fresh squeezed orange juice were all delicious. This is a breakfast that will help sustain you as you hike the many pathways around Venice.
The B&B itself is very clean and is a great location. It may not feel like it at first if you are lugging around your own luggage from the train station, but you are actually just off the Grand Canal and this is what you can see when you look out the windows at breakfast. The walking paths to the B&B are near a very nice shopping streets with many restaurant choices. The B&B sets nicely between the main tourist strip and the back streets that the locals traffic.
Sandra and her husband were very helpful answering questions about attractions, transportation and restaurants. They definitely care about their guests having a good experience in Venice.
We were a bit concerned about the two cats since my husband has allergies and asthma, but the cats rarely spend time in the guest rooms and Sandra keeps the B&B very clean. The B&B is on the top floor of the building and the first trek up with your luggage can be a bear, but it is worth it.
