We stayed here in mid-May for one night. The hotel was well priced, clean and convenient to the Rialto Alilaguna water bus stop and San Marco's Square. It was a bit hard to find, like most places in Venice because of the lack of street signs that don't match any maps. We were lucky enough to find a mailman who helped us. Pick up an Alilaguna map on your way in at the airport, and the B&B is located between Salizada San Giovanni Grisostomo and Galle Del Milion. Like other reviews, look for Osteria Barababao, and the B&B entrance door is to the right of it. A good landmark is the big red devil hand statue holding the menu in front of the Osteria. You can buzz the owners at the door or walk into the Osteria to check-in. Both are owned by the same family, which were nice and spoke ok English. The internet connection in the rooms are good and free. We didn't get to try the breakfast, but we did try the Osteria for lunch and the Hotel Malibran Ristorante next door for dinner (which had the best pizza we had in Italy)! The only issue is the key to the upstairs main door (turn is all the way to the left and a little) and the room door (turn it all the way to the right and a little). Remember there is a tourist/city tax which you have to pay in cash at check-out. This is common in all Italian city hotels. Overall, we'd recommend staying here.
