Benny and Rena were great hosts, it was our first time using Air B & B and they made it a great experience. we arrived late and were greeted with Coffees before we went out. Rena made a great breakfast and accommodated our sleep in time. Would defiantly go back agaian. Hope we didn't make too much noise Benny!
Benny and rena were amazing hosts! They took us to and from the airport, gave advice for restaurants and directions. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was great. Close to airport and to transportation to venice! Great b and b!!!
We arrived to Big Brother Bed & Breakfast late at night, well after 10 pm. Benny and his wife waited for us and made us feel welcomed without the slightest show of negative feelings about our late arrival. Benny's wife made us tea and coffee even though it was not included in the stay. That hot drink after all day of travel meant a lot for us. Clean rooms and very nice, big, modern bathrooms in combination with very nice and friendly hosts made our stay at Big Brother Bed and Breakfast a very nice memory.
Benny and his wife were extremely helpful and lovely people. We only stayed a night but the facilities were quite good. We were served a lovely cooked breakfast the next morning. We were flying out 6pm so they kept our bags and brought them to the airport for us when we were back from Venice.
A few thoughts in bullet points:
*The best part of anyone's stay should be Benny and Rita. They are very generous and incredibly helpful. They serve a lot of breakfast options in the morning, but the best is eggs and sausage. Fresh juice is served and there are a variety of pre-packaged sweet breads and yogurt available. Your bed is made and the room even tidied every day. If you have any questions or problems they actively work to help you solve them, a service you would never get in a regular hotel.
*The hotel is a 15 minute bus ride outside Treviso station. The buses stop running at 9:18 at night. If you plan to go to Venice it's important to remember that the last train to Treviso at night leaves at Midnight and a cab to the hotel costs 35 euros. That's half the price of the room.
* My Treviso to Venice commute took approximately two hours, which was not ideal for my purposes (Venice Biennale). The bus to the train station took 15 minutes, the commute to Venice 35, and then there's the waterboat, which took up the rest of the time (I was going to the Arsanale).
*A cab from the airport costs 58 euros. Take the bus.
* There are a number of restaurants in the neighborhood that offer a much more "authentic" Italian experience than you'd ever find in Venice a city that caters to tourists.
* The beds are pretty cheap - you're definitely aware of springs because you can hear them - but you don't feel them, so the beds are ultimately fine.
