This B&B is in an excellent location for exploring Venice - less than 5 minutes walk from the Rialto and 10 minutes from St Marks Square we couldn't have asked for somewhere more central, more friendly and at such a reasonable price. It felt less like a B&B and more like a hotel where you had room service every morning delivering breakfast. The staff were always friendly and accommodating and it's definitely the place we'd stay every time we return to Venice.
It's perhaps more suited to couples and single travellers than families as they only seem to provide double rooms - however that means for couples and singles it is a peaceful haven in the heart of an extremely busy Venice.
It is a little difficult to find the first time (head for Campo San Luca and it's just off there) but by using the pictures on this site and directions from google map (make sure the address matches the one above as google seems to offer lots of B&B Diamantes in various places) we found it with minimum fuss at 10.30 on a Friday night.
We picked up Jo-Ann Titmarsh's 'Venice Walks' on the recommendation of another reviewer on here and would thoroughly recommend it ourselves as a great way to see areas of Venice you might otherwise miss out on. It is a little out of date but nothing that can't be easily worked around.
Between the book and the B&B we had a fabulous holiday and will definitely be heading back as soon as we can.
