At this time of year, this was one of the best prices I could find so I was not expecting much -- especially when I booked the "small" room (having been to Venice before I have experienced very small rooms). Instead, I found a spotless room, with a good size washroom, and plenty of room to walk around the bed. There was a mini fridge, small flat screen tv, a safe, air conditioning, free wifi and a very basic breakfast. The reception lady was very friendly and helpful. There is no reception in the evening or early a.m. but you can leave the key in the mailbox if you have an early check out. The location was quiet along a small canal. If arriving from the airport, take the orange line to the Giglio vaporetto stop, walk due straight down the narrow alley to the square, turn left and take the small bridge to the left, walk to end (5 minutes total). This is very handy to avoid carrying suitcases through the various Venetian streets. The B&B is not clearly marked, it's the first door under the "walkway". If you take the blue line, it's about a 7-10 minute walk from San Marco towards Academia over a few sets of bridges.
My review is based on the room on the 1st floor to the left. There are only 2 rooms on this floor and another 5 on the 2nd floor opening onto the breakfast area.
