We are a young couple travelling in romantic Venice. Though the city reveals its mystic beauty to everyone, the Venetian experience is nonetheless enhanced by staying a wonderful, perfect, memorable home. We are certain that Venice wouldn’t feel as beautiful as it is without the heart and soul of Sandra and Leonardo, who modestly greet you in their home, while sharing their stories and their wide knowledge on Venetian life. They will pamper you, while being offered the highest quality in services and accommodation, and they will do this effortlessly, though we do acknowledge their hard work, which we truly respect. What makes their incredible beautiful house a perfect home away from home is not the design, the breakfast, the altana of the top room, the location (all these perfect) but their heart and passion which transcends through everything.
Location. The B&B is located perfectly in Cannaregio district, on the third floor of a house on a canal, in a less touristy area. After exploring the neighborhood, the different restaurant and baccari bars situated nearby, after observing the authentic Venetian life of people living here, we would choose no other location in Venice to stay. Apart from the genuine feeling offered by a real home, and not a cold hotel, you will find it extremely easy to reach Sandra’s B&B. We came from the train station (Santa Lucia) and we followed the detailed and useful directions offered on the B&B’s website, and in 20 minutes we were there. Sandra waited for us since we had communicated her our arrival time. Very close to the B&B you will find restaurants, shops, bars. Do trust completely Sandra’s recommendations on restaurants and baccari bars, and you will find yourself experiencing the great Venetian cuisine in high quality venues. Walking from the B&B to the San Marco piazza it will take you about 15 minutes. While here, be sure to explore Cannaregio district and its quiet beauty, the old Jewish quarter.
Rooms. We had the loft and the quality and design of the room is amazing. You won’t miss anything and you will find yourself drawn to the altana, the terrace on the roof. From there, the view is amazing. We spend daily some time watching the boats passing by and how the locals’ life revolve around the water canals. Things that are provided in the room: a kettle, tea, sugar, instant coffee, tea cups, hair dryer, several bath products, a comprehensive documentation on Venice, a very useful map.
Sleep quality. The mattress of the bed is magical. We slept like babies and, given the quiet neighborhood we couldn’t hear a noise from outside. Although we stayed only 5 nights, we had our linens and towels changed in our third day (we didn’t thought it was necessary, we just want to point out their quality in services). Outstanding sleep quality.
Breakfast. The breakfast room is practically their own living room, beautifully decorated. We were overly impressed by the quality of the cutlery and the dishes, and by the good taste reflect by the table setting (each morning they would change the table cloth and matching napkins and matching glasses – a different color theme every morning). Attention to details is their utmost concern. The variety of the breakfast food is large. Apart from having a wide selection of delicious cheeses, cereals, yogurt, meats, fruits, tea and coffee, Sandra will cook every morning different specialties based on eggs, cheese, spinach, different tarts and cookies. Absolutely delicious.
Overall, look no further and book your room at Sandra’s B&B. Sandra does enrich the guests' visit to Venice and her warmth, kindness, and attention to details and high quality services made us feel extremely welcomed, pampered and just like staying with family. We couldn’t have enough thank you words for such a wonderful stay, highlighted by the passion and heart of this magnificently caring and affectionate woman, Sandra.
