“B&B in Venice”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Very modern very clean and very good service and ideally located if your joining a cruise liner. It is near the piazza Roma bus terminal and st Lucia train station. Only had one bridge to cross although this was Constitution bridge. Good job there were no more like that whilst pulling luggage as Venice is not luggage friendly because of all the bridges which all have steps. Free wifi in the lounge and breakfast under the gazebo in the garden was novel. Breakfast was sparse and consisted of croissants, tea, coffee, cereals, toast with butter and jam and it was fresh. Lovely place and would definitely recommend staying here. Bedroom was a good size and had a great shower in the ensuite.

Room Tip: Ideal location if you are pulling your luggage as it is near the train and bus station also ideal if...

Stayed here two years ago and gave it five stars mainly because it was clean and a perfect location to get in and out of the city and to the cruise port. This time, I have to deduct a star for two reasons: the same old scant breakfast and the hard uncomfortable bed. The breakfast comprised a croissant, jam, not so fresh fruit, a packaged pastry, two juices and coffee. Many other reviewers have commented on the mediocre breakfast but the owners don't seem to care. In Bologna, we feasted every morning on high quality food.

On the positive side, the place was clean and quiet, and we received good service. Again, an excellent location just a few minutes walk from the bus station. Only two small bridges to haul your luggage over.

6 of us (3 couples) stayed her one prior to our cruise departing from venice recently.

It is perfectly situated close to piazza Roma which is where the airport shuttle bus arrives. Only one bridge to cross and easy to find .

The property is lovely and has lots of character and boast a lovely garden where it is possible to enjoy a continental breakfast.

The rooms nicely decorated and extremely clean. Bathrooms are nice and have bath and show facilities. They are also air conditioned and there is adequate space for luggage.

The hosts are extremely friendly and will go out of there way to make sure your stay everything is in place.

If departing on a cruise from Venice again we would definitely choose Alloggi Marinella to stay.

Delightful little property!

Lovely B&B near train station and main bus terminal. Venice is a difficult place to haul luggage through so having such a close location to transportation in and out of the city is key, unless you are all about dragging luggage over bridges and up and down stairs.

Breakfast was nice but could have been more hearty; included croissant, jams, fruit, yogurt, one type of cereal, and coffee. Quiet rooms because the B&B is a little ways off the main pedestrian areas, however it is very safe. The service was helpful and were very pleasant to be around. The beds were not very comfortable, quite firm.

We chose this small bed & breakfast as it was close to the cruise ship terminal. It was very nice to stay in the heart of Venice, but this location has its problems.
Transportation from the Venice airport was very easy via the tourist buses, and drops you off right at Piazza Roma, which is 'only' a 1000 ft. walk from this hotel. We had 4 large suitcases, and it was a struggle (not as young as I used to be!). There is one bridge between Piazza Roma and the hotel, which encompasses 36 steps (18 up and 18 down), and even roller bags were not much help up and down these stairs! Taxi nor water taxi serve this location. Upon arrival about midnight, no one answered the door, and finally called to wake someone up. Nice but small room, and a nice breakfast. I would recommend this hotel, but if you have significant luggage or mobility is an issue, I would find a different place. By the way, the hotel is on the opposite side of the 'street' from what is shown in Google maps!

Room Tip: Only one room is on the ground floor, and there is no elevator to the other rooms.

I agree with all the previous reviews that the location is the selling point for this B&B. Having not been to Venice since childhood (it is an absolute maze!) to be able to be in your room within 5 minutes of arriving at the bus station is wonderful.
Set back in a side street it is quiet - my single room although small was clean and well appointed - breakfast was adequate but could be improved and the coffee excellent.
Staff/Owners very friendly and helpfull - no problem leaving luggage due to late flight
Would recommend and happily return

I made a reservation through booking.com and the price was the best that we could find for 2 adults and a 4yo in Venice. We were coming in on a bus from the airport and going out on a cruise so the location was PERFECT. We got a little lost walking to the hotel, but this was my fault with poor preparation and map reading. The walk was easy with luggage, a tired 4yo, and additional steps getting lost. The staff was very nice. We had requested a larger room for the family and the place was great-- we were in a 2 bedroom "apartment" that was not connected to the main part of the hotel. Only issue with this was that there was no wifi in the room. It was available (slow) in the breakfast room and we had 24h access to this. The room was basic, clean, but dated. It seemed that our dislocated room was quieter than others in the main part of the hotel. One room was just off the breakfast room and I would imagine that was very loud. The hotel is located just off the beaten path so it was quite quiet in terms of street noise. Again, the location was perfect for our needs. There were plenty of places nearby for a late dinner upon arrival and it was about a 30m walk to St. Mark's Square (depending upon how lost you get en route). The breakfast was adequate, a decent start to the day- coffee, tea, yogurt, fruits, small selection of cereal, and some not really appealing pastries… The juices were AMAZING. I generally do not drink juice, but the red orange juice and whatever else they were serving was absolutely wonderful. Again, the staff was friendly and helpful, very pleasant experience. Not sure that it was worth the $$, but if you are staying in Venice I am not sure that you can do better.
