The location of this property simply couldn't be better. Just 2 minutes' walk from St. Mark's Square, and not more than 50 metres from the waterfront Riva degli Schiavoni that overlooks the lagoon, this guesthouse-cum-hostel (locally classified as holiday home 'Casa per Ferie') offers simple yet spacious accommodation in the very heart of Venice. Housed in a historical building, A Bed in Venice has been opened following the renovation on the top floor of a former convent (easily reached by elevator). The result is a mixture of spacious guestrooms and large comfortable public areas which are ideal for students, small groups of friends or families. Guests should note that all bathrooms are shared, but their ample size and large number throughout the building ensure constant access and availability. Accommodation is equipped with air conditioning and flat-screen televisions and all guestrooms face the large and airy hallways; ideal for a relaxing sit-down or rest following a day's sightseeing. The crowning glory of this property is its large rooftop terrace overlooking a breathtaking panorama of terracotta roofs and famous churches such as San Zaccharia, Madonna della Salute and San Marco itself. Considering this property's location and value-for-money mix, it's definitely worth a visit Guests should note that local city tax is not included in the rate booked. This will be charged directly to guests by the hotel and payable at check in/out.
