Art Blue
Ranked #363 of 479 Venice B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 April 2009

I went there with by partner for a weekend in Venice. We picked this b&b essentialy because of the good price. The room is not bad at all: large and clean, just like in the pictures. Friendly staff. The breakfast could have been more complete. Good position to go around Venice.

Reviewed 27 March 2009

My husband and I stayed here on first week of October 2008. The photos of the rooms on the web are consistent. We stayed in room no. 2. The room was recently renovated; it boasts of modern furnishings and bathroom fixtures. Very clean room. The staff, Kumar, spoke very good English and assisted us to the vaporetto upon our departure. Art Blue is well-located,where there is a good number of cafes (including the Art Blue Café on the ground floor) and also accessible to Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge. The location is bustling with activities but not disturbing. However, our concerns are the following: (1)the directions to the B&B as stated on the web indicated that we get off at "Accademia", which we did. However, while this was indeed the quickest way to the B&B, we would say it was the most difficult as well. We were not informed beforehand that the Accademia bridge is a wooden bridge made up of 1000 steps; at least, that's how we felt with our heavy pieces of luggage in tow! It would be good if the B&B could provide an alternative route for guests who are unprepared to climb those steps. (2)There was no reception to welcome us or give preliminaries upon our arrival at Art Blue. We arrived at 3:30pm, in broad daylight, and only a waiter from the Art Blue Cafe (which was owned by another person) had given us keys to access our room. He didn't speak much English and all he could tell us was what the keys were for and that the owner of the B&B was only in the premises in the mornings. (We only met him briefly on the day of our departure.) (3)The ground floor of the hotel premises struck us as being "spooky". Without anyone to explain to us our surroundings and accompany us to our room, we couldn’t help but feel uncomfortable. It was very dark and the room appeared to us more like an unkempt storage room. (4)It was also quite a climb up the stairs from the ground floor to the rooms. (5)Breakfast was one small croissant and a cup of capuccino
