We stayed here for 2 nights and had a very pleasant stay at the Arabesque. The location was perfect, they keep the bedroom very clean and it was one of the most spacious rooms that we found while in Europe. We shared a bathroom with about 2 other rooms which could at times be difficult, but nothing that would keep me from returning. I highly recommend this place.
We had good time with Paolas. The location is good. The direction that Paola gave was however not the easiest to get to her place. The nearest stop to her place is actually St. Marco S. Zaccaria (water bus).
Paola place is in a lovely location, friendly host although there is a language barrier (this is not uncommon for the tourist!)
She was welcoming and even showed another couple who were staying at ARABESQUE her sons restaurant Co vino where we had dinner one night. Thank you Paola.
Small cons the shower head was broken, meaning I had to hold the shower nozzle in my hand (no biggy - but slightly disappointing) big bathroom though which is nice and clean and I had a few mosquito bites! This is not Paola's problem - I'm sure all over Venice due to optimum breeding conditions!! (They as super fast ones too)
Coffee is nice in the morning, cereals are corn flakes and coco pops (more appropriate for the much younger amongst us - but it did the trick.
There (email hidden) tourist tax which Paola requested on arrival and my 1 EU change not given - eh I'm not fussed - Paola can you please donate to your shower head repairs!! :)
To summarise, pleasant stay, no a/c so be careful of season, great wifi & location is where you want to be.
Many thanks we have really enjoyed our stay, nice breakfast and friendly host!
Pros: big room, clean, outdoor balcony
Cons: extremely difficult to locate, unfriendly host, unsatisfying breakfast
Although there was some confusion between the address on airbnb and the actually address of the accommodation our stay was quite pleasant.
Our room although very hot (no aircon) and quite noisy (external street noise), was clean and in a good location for those wanting to escape the tourist buzz
Even though we had the shortest stay at Paola's on our Italy trip, it was one of the nicest stays for us. The location was very easy to get to from San Zacharia water taxi, especially since Venice (email hidden) with luggage. The room was very large, clean and beautifully decorated - same as the rest of the house. There were 2 single beds in addition to the queen in the Marrakesh room and only two of us. Paola was very accommodating as we got in late on Saturday and had to leave very early on Sunday for our flight. She gave us some croissants and juice to take with us. If we ever visit Venice again, we will definitely stay at her B&B.
Clean and spacious room. We are just very thankful to be able to book a room during the Biennale at such late notice. The main bed frame is a little wobbly, Ikea quality, but it was only for a night. In general, very clean and nicely decorated; breakfast was good with nice terrace. Only down side, can be a little hard to find. Though the location was perfect to get to San Marco and to the Arsenale for the Biennale.
