Granted, I went there 2 years ago (July 2010), but I was just looking through my pictures today and remembered how accommodating and wonderful the owner was. I didn't have a TripAdvisor account then, but having one now I felt compelled to write about my experience. I booked this hotel through my American Express card. Apparently, when I entered my credit card number, I typed a number twice, so the hotel never got the reservation. When we showed up and didn't have a reservation --and the hotel was booked --I was distraught! It was a Friday afternoon and we didn't have a place to stay. The owner assured me not to worry and offered us his friend's apartment right across the street. He said his friend was out of town for a few months, so as long as we didn't carry our biggest suitcase up the stairway (it was a tiny stairway) we could stay there for the same price as one of his rooms. He trusted us in his friend's apartment with all of the person's belongings still in there!
He also said he would still allow us to eat breakfast at his hotel! The hotel itself seems very nice and clean. I was upset we couldn't stay in one of the rooms, but was VERY grateful for the experience we did have while in Venice. Checkout was at 11, I think, and he allowed us to keep our bags in a room (that looked like a laundry room) in his hotel until 5:00 that evening.
I cannot speak more highly of the owner! I will DEFINITELY stay there again if/when I go back to Venice!!! I highly encourage you to stay there.
