The staff were fantastic made us laughandfeel at home


The owner is really friendly and helpful and the house is clean and spacious. The only negative thing was the mosquitos were quite bad so we got bitten while sleeping. It is located close to the train and bus station and about a 25 minute walk to Piazza s. Marco.


Great staff! Thanks for feeling welcome.


Positives: Very good Location, Close to the station and the channels, Rooms are clean with airconditioner Negatives: Definitely not a friendly welcome....The guy did not even introduce himself when we arrived, we were given the keys, showed the room and told to email him if we needed something. If you are up for the absolute basics then this is the place to stay.........Bed, Shower & Breakfast (No fresh bread/jams/juice/coffee - Do it yourself)


Our stay here was great. We felt very safe the whole time, and the owner was readily available if we needed help with anything. The location is right in the middle of the city, and great for getting around to see everything. There is a water taxi stop that is about a 30 second walk from the door. I would definitely stay here again if we come back to Venice.


I spent in viva venezia best days. The atmosphere is great, allows to feel like in my own residence in Venice. I hope to be one day back and stay the same place.


Great clean accommodations. Owner was also available and responded via e-mail quickly!

It would be nice to have had soap in the bathroom shower or a container of soap/shampoo The breakfast food was self serve, which is fine, but it was not fresh breads (just prepackaged stuff)

Very spacious room with a large common area. Lots of character with beautiful wood floors and brickwork. Easy to get to #1 Vaporetto stop and close enough to train station to walk. Very quiet room.
