"Charming Friendly Family run with a personal touch"
We had a wonderful time and if we go to Venice area again, we would stay here. The place is as charming as it appears in the pictures. It is clean and well run. When booking look for breakfast included (if not you can pay for breakfast there) as it is worth it. The dining area looks like we are preparing to have a lovely tea (adorable), the service is great, and the food is too. There is an African Grey living there who has about another 92 or so years to go. Be sure to visit him, he is a nice boy. Our room was for four, which can be challenging to furnish with the smaller space they had to work with. However, we were quite comfortable and we enjoyed hanging out in our room with the shutters up watching a storm. Now the staff... you feel more like a very welcome guest in their spacious-many rooms-home than just dealing with polite staff doing their assigned job. The owner- the Mom/Wife (this is actually a family run business: Husband, Wife, and their sons, and friendly non family members too) doesn't speak English and we speak only a little Italian. Just the same, she greeted us warmly and made sure we had everything we need. When we checked out, I sought her out to say "grazie. il vostro posto è bellissimo" and was rewarded with a big smile and a hug. I would recommend this place to a friend.

Fabulous location, couldn't be better placed to explore Venice and the Islands using the public water buses, including the night service.
We stayed in a twin room, en-suite which was cleaned daily with fresh towels provided and although the storage space is not huge, you must remember that this is a yacht after all and holdalls or small cases are advisable.
You are ensured a warm welcome from Nelli, the host, and the buffet breakfast is excellent with plenty to chose from, including cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurts, cheese, meats, croissants, rolls, cakes, coffee, tea and toast!
Hotels in Venice don't usually have outdoor seating areas so being able to sit on the deck in the afternoon sunshine was just wonderful and so interesting watching the ocean liners and cruise ships pass by. Should I visit Venice again I will definitely stay on the yacht again.

Lovely hotel and very convenient location as the Mestre station is opposite. There's a supermarket down the road to buy snacks/juice. Breakfast was good - variety of selections. Yummy pastries.
One thing I wasn't so pleased about was that cleaners coming in to clean at around half 8 when me and my partner were still sleeping. This happened about two out of the six days we stayed.
