A friend and I stayed three nights in Venice and were lucky to find Casa Petrarca. Located directly between the Rialto Bridge and San Marco Square in a quiet street, Casa Petrarca is in a perfect location with a great price. It's a quiet little hotel with very comfortable beds, a nice breakfast service, and a cheerful, super friendly, and helpful staff whose activity and restaurant recommendations were spot on. I would definitely stay at Casa Petrarca again the next time I visit Venice!

Yes! We all dream of that perfect Venetian holiday with a room overlooking The Grand Canal, watching the gondolas coasting lazily by! The peak July holiday season, however saw me settle for second best! And thank fully Casa Petrarca did not disappoint! No, you won't get a room overlooking The Canal, but you will get a room that is just a 5-minute walk from it! It is clean, quaint, with a wonderful welcoming vibe!

It is so so so easy to get lost in Venice - so make sure you follow the directions given on their website to the T! The journey from St Lucia Station to Rialto takes about 20 odd mins (direct Vaporetto), and its a 5 min walk from Rialto Bridge. St. Marks Square is a 10 minute walk!

The rooms are really quaintly decorated and even though we didn’t have an ensuite bathroom, privacy was never an issue! I didn’t meet another soul throughout my three night stay! You often think of B&B’s as being over-crowded and claustrophobic, we however were so pleasantly surprised! Even breakfast, in this sold-out holiday season was managed smoothly! Kudos!

Don’t go expecting The Ritz, and you won’t be disappointed! :-)

Pro's:
- 5min from St Mark's Sq.
- 5min from nearest vaporetto station (Riatlo)
- Strong shower
- Filling breakfast, not the tastiest buffet but good enough to keep you going till lunchtime
- Lovely owners
- Comfy bed (room 1)

Other points:
- Easy to find if you follow the map sent to you by owners
- Make sure you get off at Riatlo and not Riatlo Mercaito like we done (oops!)
- Lovely to find umbrella's accessible to visitors

Last point:
This is great for a weekend stay, longer than this, I would want a room with a fridge and a TV - but that's personal choice.

Room Tip: Room 1 was ok, window overlooked other house's room.

My family of six stayed here during the New Year's holiday and it was lovely. It is a small warm inn and the owners are very very helpful. They gave our family great restaurant recommendations and helped make reservations for some activities. The rooms were very clean and well appointed. You can't beat the location --very close to St. Mark's square . The view of the canal out of my room was so lovely. It truly is a little gem.

Room Tip: Choose the room overlooking the canal!

Even when following the map provided by the hotel, we had some difficulty finding it once we were nearby. The hotel is located on a quite side street barely two or three minutes away from San Marco. The Rialto bridge may be five minutes away.

Our room, overlooking a side street was very small but nicely maintained The attached bathroom was also very small but clean and well maintained. The breakfast was good. Valentina was very nice to deal with. I chose this hotel based on the TA reviews and was not disappointed at all. It was an excellent deal compared to similarly rated properties in the same area. I strongly recommend this place if you are looking for a nice and basic place to stay close to the major attractions of Venice.
