"Good Hotel, but bad experience the second night."
The room was very comfortable. The bed very good.
Clean linens and towels. Spacious room. Hotel is a little Isolated but easy to get to. Nice restaurants near by.
Everything was good the first night, but the second night in the middle of the night around 12:30 we wake up to a leak right on top of our luggage that was on top of a table. Later we found lots of our clothes had gotten wet, but didn't realize it at first because we move the bag away and started to place towels on the table. Front desk offered to change us to another room, but at that time of the night, we just didn't want to move anywhere and leave our things there. We went back to bed and hoped to fall back to sleep quickly. We were awake for about an hour in the morning the Hotel Manager did credit our account for the inconvenience. Other than that it was a good experience. Great room and comfortable bed and good linens.

Staying on a yacht was cool but the facilities were not what I was expecting. Staff were often not available, sometimes they just left with no one working at all making it impossible to ask for anything. The wifi was often turned off and not usable, especially when staff were not on board to enable it.

When you stay at a B&B, you are staying in someone's home, and you can never forget that. They always have more restrictive atmospheres than hotels. That said, the longer I stayed at Ca' Isabella, the more I liked it. It has the kind of plumbing that is unique to Venice, and it takes some getting used to, but it makes up for that by having an excellent location. It is not located on the main islands, it is on the island of Guidecca, just south of Venice proper. Because of that, it does not have the hoards of tourists roaming the sidewalks and alleys. Guidecca is more relaxed and comfortable. Hotel doesn't have a lift (elevator), and the rooms are not on the lower floors. They served a full breakfast every day, including meat. The people are pleasant, especially the older woman. The beds were comfortable. There is a public laundromat two bridges away, beyond the Palanca waterbus landing. Look for a "T" sign over a shop. That is a tobaccoist (cigarettes), and they sell waterbus tickets, each good for a set amount of time. We bought one-way tickets to get to the hotel 7.5euros each, two-day tickets for 30euros each, and one-way tickets to return to the train station.
From Palanca pier, take waterbus 2 to get across the lagoon quickly, or waterbus 4.1 to take a slower route to one of the San Marco piers. Make sure waterbus 2 is going in the direction you want. The list of stops and the direction is posted in every pier, but some piers have separate waiting covers.

We had a private triple room. Walking distance to water taxis, grocery stores, easy access to all parts of Venice. The room was clean, sunny, and way more modern than I expected. Check in was hassle free, staff was friendly.
Easy access to to main sights of Venice by the free shuttle boat service. Excellent comfortable and clean facilities and continental breakfast/snacks, drinks all stocked for you to enjoy! The shuttle service was very frequent and ran on time to a set timetable making it easy to plan your time.

Best thing about the Stucky apartment was the location - but I wish I'd paid the high cost of staying at the Stucky hotel!
Disappointing accommodation and overall experience. At check-in I was asked for cash up-front and didn't have enough so had to be walked to the nearest ATM. (Was there for business and couldn't make myself available at any other time).
Apartment was clean and comfortable but let down by dull decor, no shower and non-functioning TV and oven.
Daniella, the host's representative was helpful when I met her at check-in and helpful in arranging water taxi.
Ten minutes by waterbus from Piazza San Marco, the quiet residential island of Giudecca, is the place to escape the crowds. The only monument of note is Palladio’s church Il Redentore, focus of a major festival in late July. The atmosphere is typically Venetian and there are a handful of restaurants.
