  • Our family of 4 had a very enjoyable stay at Hsinyi and Gabriel's b&b . Gabriel tried his best to make us feel comfortable and make sure everything is ok for us . He communicates well and very quickly . Although it is in the mainland , it is very convenient to go to venice in about 15-20 minutes with regular bus services just outside his b&b. we highly recommend his b&b and will stay there again when we visit venice again.

  • Gabriel was an incredibly kind host who made sure that we had all the information necessary to get from the Venice mainland to Venice island. He is also very personable and communicates via text which was a huge help. The house is situated in a nice quiet neighborhood yet shopping and a few restaurants are just around the corner. The bus stop to Venice island is less than 1/2 a mile away. We traveled with my brother and sister-in-law and they were very happy with their modern room. My husband and I were a little less impressed with our room. It was large by European standards but a bit worn. We did not realize that we would be sharing a bathroom with other guests at the B&B so I would caution travelers to make sure they have a private bath. The house is great if you are traveling with a large party because there are many rooms to rent. Via bus the main part of Venice was about a 15 minute bus ride. For about €10 euro we could get roundtrip bus tickets that included the water buses in the main Venice area.

  • Had a great stay at the BNB. The worse part about it was that we were only there for a short time. The location is great to the airport and Gabriel was super kind and drove us to the airport to catch our early flight. I would definitely recommend staying here.

  • I have to say this is my most uncomfortable experience with BnB. Even though Gabriel waited for us for one more hour because we waited an hour to get on a bus from the airport to his place and he showed directions for us, my family and I still had an unpleasant stay there. He yelled at us when he found us using his washing machine and turned it off immediately. There was some bread lying on the desk for our breakfast. No juice and only little coffee powder. It's about 30mins to go to Venice train station from his home, not as he says 10mins. He is not a very welcoming host. I don't recommend this place!

    Response from Hsinyi & Gabriel:

    Dear Cindy and family, I am sorry you had an uncomfortable stay at my house.

    There are 2 important things to say: 1) on your review you were UMPRECISE, because even if you were clearly told not to enter and/or use common space after 9p.m. and even if you were clearly and kindly advertised not to touch and/or use my personal washer you freely decided to enter the common space and use my washer, AT MIDNIGHT! Common sense of education would have told you that at midnight it is a nice thing to respect other guests sleeping
    Please note that I had to mope kitchen and the bathroom at midnight because you wet them all.
    2) on your review you were FALSE, because every morning I feel the common kitchen for breakfast with: 3 kind of coffe, american, moka and espresso, milk, juice, butter, yogurt, biscuits, cereals, yogurt, the, bread and pastries.

    Advice for your next travels: if you are in a rush to wash 2 bags full of clothes, just ask: maybe you can have some help or tips.

    Regards
    Gabriel

  • Gabriel was a great host! We changed our arrival time last minute and he was very accommodating! The bedroom and bathroom were very spacious and the breakfast area was very nice. I definitely recommend staying here!

  • We spent a night at Gabriel place and we didn't get a chance to meet him. We were greet by his brother.

    We spent more than half hour to look for his B&B(we asked people from the store but no one know after we get off the bus) and we arrived at around 1:40pm (the check-in time :14:00) but we are not allowed to step inside the B&B even the entry since his brother told us that he just moped the whole place , we spent a long time for traveling so we really in need to go for toilet, but he insisted we are not allowed to step in anywhere inside the B&B. And he keep pushing us to try the restaurant that he recommend and go to toilet there. Since we are in a rush to get back to the bus within 75mins usage time (we only have 10 mins left) so we just left our luggages at the garden and gone. that's so weird since we have stay with others host/BnB though Airbnb, and this is the first time treated like that.

    location:
    Santa Lucia Venice train station: 25 minutes by bus and another 10 mins walk ,depends if you have lots of luggage , it's not easy to look for the place , we have asked many ppl and shops and the people, no one know exactly where it's. if you are spending only for 1-2 days likes us, maybe better stay near the train station. And the last bus is 10:25pm not as mention at 1:00am

    cleanliness:
    the room looks spacious , Gabriel offered us the room with the bathroom, but when we get back at night, OMG.....there were a big cockroach inside and pillow smell!

    overall:
    if you are going to spend a month in Venice it's ok, otherwise it's not worth to take so long for traveling even for this cheap price. They have prepared lots of bread and juice as breakfast all new ikea furniture but the cleanliness really need to be improved.

    Response from Hsinyi & Gabriel:

    Dear madam Katherine, thank you for your review.

    - About the cleanliness of the room: rarely we had complaints from the guests, about your situation, I can say we had just changed the day before the cleanings maid so it could be happened the service was not perfect: we are sorry, this will help us to improve the service. The next time please contact me suddenly if you have anything to complain, we are always ready to fix any kind of trouble; this is the first time someone writes about insects but they are not tolerated in my house at all. Thanks

    - About check in time: it is clearly advertised and notoriusly noted that check in time is at 2pm so I do not see any problem. The room was going to be dry in few minutes, if you only had the courtesy and education to wait a little bit you could enter your room and your toilet. If you were in a rush, sorry, it is not my fault.

    - About bus: I am sorry you are WRONG, the last bus from Venice is 1a.m. not 22.30. Yes, 1 a.m., bus n. 4. ( take a look to (website hidden)) Just call us or ask us, you would have been told about.

    - About my location: my small town is just ten thousand people, most of them maybe they do not me but they surely know my road ( via Monte Cavallo) because it is in the center of the town. It is IMPOSSIBLE to get lost. I think that probably you had no voucher with you ( were my directions are clear) and had no money/time/courtesy to call me ( you were in a rush....?) you would have been helped and easily driven

    From S Lucia train station it is 18 minutes not 25 and then just 2 minutes walking (there is La Piazza stop just in front of my road!). If you could follow my directions, and not get off wherever you randomly supposed, you could be here much more faster. So, sorry, it is your fault

    - About my place: you cannot compare my place with stations areas, safety and silence in my place are 100% better. And I am 100% closer to airport.

    Best regards
    Gabriel

  • A spacious room in the quiet area of Favaro Veneto. On the ground floor there was a nice kitchen for breakfast. Also a place to meet other guests. The bus to the centre of Venice was two minutes walking from the b&b. Gabriel gave us a lot of information about shops and restaurants.

  • Gabriel was a fantastic host. He was very accommodative when our train to Venice was delayed and we reached the bnb later than expected. The room is comfortable, clean and has everything you need. The breakfast options are aplenty and Gabriel helps you around the kitchen. On check-in, we were handed an information sheet with a small map of the surrounding areas and bus/train details. This proved to be very useful on our trip to Venice island which is an easy bus ride away. Gabriel also recommended a nearby restaurant that serves excellent food- and we agree! He also offered to drop us off at the airport.

    Overall it has been amazing experience staying here.

  • We enjoyed the accommodations there . We arrived prior to check in time and they had no problem with holding our luggage for us as they got the room ready. When we returned later that evening our room was clean and fresh. It was perfect.They also provided the service to pick us up after our disembarkmen as well as to the airport. we could not thank them enough for that.
