the bed was good, not to hard and not too soft, the bathroom simple but clean, the room small but sufficient but way too hot, couldn't sleep well at night despite additional fan. the breakfast lacked fresh products like eggs, ham or salami and whole grain breads. had to buy some at a super market. breakfast is 5 € and not included. didn't know - description not fully comprehensible on website - otherwise I could have had some at a nearby café. but the place is nice to stay at. staff is kind but sort of a bit invisible, needs to be called with bell. on demand got a hairdryer and a scale to weigh my suitcase and always kind information

(Excellent in its category) The garden was a good surprise. Really ten minutes on foot from Rialto and less than two minutes to the vaporetto in Fundamento Nuovo. The shared bathroom is spacious and no need to rush. Good food in the area. For that price, I recommend it without any reserve.

This was a great hotel. Away from the busy areas, if you don't mind a little extra walking. Quiet, beautiful place to stay. Easily accessible by vaporetto from the airport, to get around town, and out to the islands. No AC for the summer months, but at minimum, a fan and a window. Very happy with this booking.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, the hotel was quiet, clean and very friendly. It was my birthday whilst we were there and we came back one afternoon to find a rose and a happy birthday message on the bed! We were close enough to walk to all the major sights and there are plenty of nice, not too touristy restaurants in the neighbourhood.

Having never visited Venice before, we had quite a time trying to find this hotel. Every little twisting alleyway seemed to have it's own name and we felt like mice in a maze. The map showed the water bus station to be deceptively close which was frustrating with all our luggage at 2330 in the suffocating heat. I hadn't even thought to check before booking for air conditioning (silly American) and the room was quite small and close with small windows although there was a fan which made the stay almost bearable. The common area was very lovely and the staff was friendly helpful but overall it's worth the extra money for the extra comfort especially in the hot humid venetian summer.

I stayed at the hotel for one night. Friendly and helpful staff. It's nice that even talking in Russian.The location is convenient. A bit cold in the room, and too good audibility. However, the location and attitude of staff fully compensate for these features. Lovely interior, creates a sense of domesticity. I would love to stop in "Casa Boccassini" again.

We had the smallest room in the hotel, but we know it before. We just spent our time there to sleep, so it was no problem for us. The service personal was very friendly and helped us when we had questions. Furthermore he spoked English, German and French (other languages maybe). The only noise came from outside (our window was situated on a litlle street) but you didn't hear something from the other rooms. On top of that, we were asked if we want to let our lugages on the recpetion after check out, so that we can visit the the town on our last day without taking them with us.

This hotel is a little out of the way on the North Lagoon area, but a short walk to the Fond. Nove ACTV vaporetto stop, easy to get to any other area including Murano. It's quiet. Good places to eat by the water. Nice walk though the streets, which I liked. The room was nice, but the woman was all freaked out that the computer had me as 2 people, thought I only put one. Apparently I got a nicer, bigger room, which I paid for, though I was only 1 person. I did not get her disappointment in the situation. I should have skipped breakfast. It's poor: Tea/coffee, bread,jam, cheese. And they charged me 5 euro extra. I would have been happy to pay extra if they have provided a fresh and varied menu. I went to the Coop and got food for my next morning. Same price, better eating. Not sure if I would stay here again. I did this at the last minute while in Italy and I will spend more time looking for a better price next time. I will say, if you are staying in Venice, I'm happy to pay to stay in the thick of it and enjoy walking to every where.

The hotel was pretty good, and the little garden downstairs was very charming. It would be a good improvement though to provide wireless internet in the rooms, have more powerful desk fans. The air can be very humid and warm in the summer and the tiny fans were barely helping. Otherwise, it was a nice place to stay at. Don't worry about the shared bathroom, I only had to wait one time to use it because it was occupied, and the wait wasn't too long either. The bathroom was always clean, and the toiletries they had were exceptionally good smelling.

Very friendly and helpful welcoming from the manager, who also was the owner of the hotel. This hotel is rated as one star but feels, at least, like a three star hotel. Very god location (better than indicated ont the web-site map), just 2 minutes walk to a waterbus stop and 10-20 minutes walk to San Marcos square depending how fast you walk and how crowded it is. Nice and clean room, with the amount of space that you need. Surroundings, quiet narrow streets, allowed you to sleep with the windows opened. There is a beautiful garden in the backyard of the hotel were the breakfast is served (which we didn´t have). We stayed for one night, but had two full days in Venice. Leaving our luggage after check-out and taking a shower before going to the airport was no problem at all. We highly recommend this hotel for everyone!//Marianne and Sarah, Sweden

Easy to get to on the ferry, yummy shops all around. Would recommend anyone who is on a tight budget to consider this hotel, shared bathroom was always clean and tidy. Don't worry so much about the breakfast, there's plenty of bakeries all around.

This hotel was a great choice! Very nice staff, very clean rooms, very beautiful garden outside, great price for peak season in Venice. The location could be a bit difficult to find for those who don't know Venice well. I've been living there for 5 years as a student, so I had no problems in finding the hotel, but other people might complain. However, everything is difficult to find in Venice as it's just like a big labirinth, but this hotel was a good deal, so I highly recommend it!!!

When I turned off the street and walked up to the entrance, a beautiful little cat came running out to greet me. That just about sums up this hotel to me - a very kind welcome, I was immediately given a free map and advice about seeing the city. The garden is beautiful and although I was there in the spring, I imagine that it is a godsend when things get sultry and stuffy in the summer. There is a very small pool of water and lanterns above where the tables are set outside. The whole place is spotlessly clean. My single room was just perfect for what I wanted - a place to spend the night. I never watch television anyway, so I always feel cable TV is wasted on me. When I hit the bed, I slept like a log for 11 hours! The single room does not have ensuite shower, so I used the common bathroom next door to my room. But no one else seemed to use it while I was there, it too was spotlessly clean, and I had the luxury of a long hot soak in a bath - just what you need after going up and down bridges all day in Venice! Breakfast is very light - rolls, jam and coffee for 5 euros - so I skipped it, but the tables and tableclothes also looked spotlessly clean. Be sure to take a print-out of Google Map when you first go there, as Venice is a mass of small lanes and alleys. On the other hand, unlike many other towns, every street and lane is clearly marked, so as long as you have a map it is virtually impossible to get lost. I thoroughly recommend this hotel, excellent value for money - although I kind of feel I would like to keep this discovery all to myself!

The photograph of the garden really attracted us to this small family room hotel, and it did not disappoint. It is available for resident's use during the day, and provides shade and tranquility. The rooms were clean, spacious and well presented- pillows a bit thin and few-would have liked more!

For Venice, this was a great place to stay. It was affordable and had all the neccessary amenities. The rooms & bathroom were very clean and tidy and the staff were very friendly. There are also some street signs that direct you to the Hotel. Some things to be mindful of; there is only one key and you must drop it off at reception and pick it up as you come and go (this is so they know wether you are out or not), there is some construction outside the hotel but this didn't start till about 8.30am and our room was on the quiet side, B'fast is not included (it is 5 euro) and there is a small fan in the room but it is still quite warm at night (JUL/AUG). Overall, I was satisfied with Hotel Casa Boccassini and I would stay there again.

I think this hotel is very nice! It is not modern, for example there is no air conditionar so little bit hot in July, but very clean, not so expensive, people of this hotel are very kind. I got a free map of Venice in front office of this hotel. It is very useful to travel. The location is not so bad, about 15 minutes walk to San Marco, access is very good to come from Piazza Roma or train station, and to go small islands by ship. I notice that the one small bad point is little bit noisy but at night silent enough to sleep well. I recommend to stay this hotel for the travelers who try to find cheap hotel and save costs.

The staff were extremely helpful, friendly and most welcoming. The public areas of the hotel were beautiful (including a lovely private garden). The room itself wasn't massive, but it is Venice, and the prices were remarkably low, so this was expected and fair enough. We could have done with air conditioning in July (think the venere website was a bit vague about this) but there was an electric fan. I'd go back, and it's a great, homely hotel if you're on a budget.

The hotel was delightful, particularly on arriving, the first view is of the lovely little breakfast area and garden. My room, a small twin bed with shared bathroom/toilet a few steps away from my door. Neat and tidy although the bathroom in the morning showed signs of the previous user. Towels provided are small. I was lucky to book a good price online considering I was there in early May so was more than satisfied with the standard of the hotel. On other visits I have stayed in a hotel on a canal, which although may seem romantic and picturesque has the draw back of noisy early morning boat deliveries. Here at the Boccassini, my room faced a quiet little side street that from 10pm till about 7am was perfectly peaceful, I had a very good, undisturbed nights sleep. The breakfast was very basic (fruit juice,bread and jam plus coffee) and not included in the price, I paid by card, but it filled a hole. For me the hotel was in the right part of Venice, as my trip was centered around Murano which was easily accessible by vaparetto only a few minutes walk away. Also it was away from the hubbub of the main tourist areas, for me a plus, but lets face it anywhere in Venice is either a short walk or vaparetto ride away. I would most certainly stay here again.

Excellent budget hotel if you just want somewhere to sleep during the Carnival. Facilities minimal. Room I had was a double, but very small. No TV, no hairdryer, shared bathroom, neon light over bedroom mirror that flickered all night. Small supermarket nearby. Hotel easy to reach from Fondamenta Nuove wharf. Places to eat in the surrounding area were not bad. You can walk to Rialto and San Marco from there. All in all I give it 8/10 for value, and 6/10 for comfort. Don't have the breakfast! Its cheaper and nicer to get something at a bar.

-stayed in a double with washroom -friendly staff -lovely courtyard garden/entry area -warming towel rack was nice, towels were a bit stiff from being dried on the line :oP -we had lots of luggage & our room had no stairs to it which was great -room was tidy & clean but had a strong smell of "clean"/deodorizer -a fine, budget, quieter base for exploring venice -chose this location b/c we had an early flight to catch & this is near the last Alilaguna pick up stop on the earliest run in the morning

I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Casa Boccassini. If I were to stay again I would get a room with a private bath. It would be more convenient. I think they might invest in nicer towels. It would be nice if they provided drinks and/or treats so that if you come to your room during the day or evening you could quench your thirst and have a snack. There are stores available but they are more than a minute away and I didn't find them until I'd been there a couple days. Internet service at the hotel would be nice too. The people working there were very accommodating and friendly. WARNING: The hotel is conveniently located to the water taxis. IF you have an early flight, mine was at 6:45, DON'T count on ALILAGUNA taxi service to show. I got up to make the 4:21 am boat. I arrived early and stayed too long waiting for it. As a result I missed my flight and had to pay $200 to change my reservation. There are no convenient alternatives at that time of the morning. I would make a reservation with a private water taxi even though it is very expensive. I would have saved money.

Cannot fault the hotel for price and general location. Maybe a bit of a labyrinthine route to St Mark's Square for some.

This was a great hotel within 5 minutes walking to Ponte Rialto and 10 minutes to San Marco Plaza. Even though you have to share a bathroom there was a sink in our room and a big dresser with plenty of space to put things. Great staff, huge bed, no TV. Great garden. I would definitely stay here again. The water taxis are kind of expensive if you're on a budget (almost 7 Euros each ticket!) so you can walk from the train station to the hotel in about 20 minutes.

The first time visit to Venice was a great break for me and my husband! We were quite happy for selecting Casa Boccassini as our B&B. We stayed here for 3 days. The service provided is excellent by the hospitable and welcoming staff. Breakfast was upto the mark and we enjoyed the same in the small garden of Casa Boccassini. Rooms are pretty clean and safe. Venice city centre is just 15 minutes by walk and Rialto Bridge is just 10 mins from here. After checking out in the morning, we could even leave our luggage here and then come back in the afternoon to pick them up. There is also easy access St.Mark's Square, Piazza Roma, Lido and Murano through the Boat Services from Fondamenta Nouve which is just 2 mins by walk from here. We would surely recommend Casa Boccassini to one and all.

The hotel very kindly added breakfast as a bonus to our stay without charge (although it said specifically in our reservation that the breakfast was not included). Unfortunately, there was some confusion when paying the bill at the end- they had some trouble understanding that the breakfast was free and that we were to get a 5 euro discount by using venere.com. The receptionist eventually took off the breakfast cost and gave us the discount, but the language barrier made it take a little while to make her understand. Our room was quaint but small. Some rooms have bathrooms and showers...our didn't, I'm assuming that we got a discounted rate because of there was not showers in our room. All in all, this was a good value for our money...just a little quirky with the above stuff.

It was absolutely amazing at Casa Boccassini! We received an enormously friendly welcome upon our arrival and were given free breakfast for 4 days as a little gift! Admittedly, the breakfast wasn't exactly worth 7 Euros, but a free roll and a cup of coffee was certainly very welcome! The rooms are lovely decorated, quiet and very clean, and the staff is very friendly at most times (showing up at 5 in the morning and wanting to get in wasn't so welcome, even though we were told it wouldn't be a problem to get in whenever we wanted to. Maybe they should review their ways to get in). The location was great as the hotel was positioned in a calmer, more neighbourhoody area of Venice but still only a 15-min walk to Rialto Bridge. I would stay at Casa Boccassini again and again.

This is a little gem in Venice, the bed was firm, the A/C cold, the rooms are all different, from basic to delux, quiet and secluded, I think the best places to eat are in this area, when you get off the vaporetto look to your left for the hotel sign, I have been on many trips to Venice and this is the best deal this Texas boy has ever found and I will be back.

Das Hotel ist sehr gepflegt und geschmackvoll gestaltet. Das Team ist sympathisch, sehr hilfsbereit und kompetent. Mindestens 2 Mitarbeiter sprechen recht gut Deutsch. Mein Zimmer war zwar etwas klein, aber für venezianisch Verhältnisse ist das völlig normal. Das Bad war ein Gemeinschaftsbad ausserhalb des Zimmers. Gross, schön, mit allem ausgestattet. Am hübschen Garten kann man unter einem grünen Blätterdach an Tischen oder in Sesseln sitzen und die Seele baumen lassen. In der Nähe des Hotels gibt es einige Läden für Lebensmittel und den täglichen Gebrauch, sowie einige zauberhafte und günstige Restaurants. Das Viertel wird von ganz normalen Venezianern bewohnt, ist nicht touristisch überlaufen. Idealer Ausgangspunkt für alle, die die Inseln Murano, Burano usw. ansehen möchten, da die Boote dorthin ganz nahe an der Station Fondamenta Nove abfahren.

It's a lovely little hotel off north of Venice. I suggest travel with light baggage if you intend to walk there since it's pretty far away from train terminal & it's easy to get lost in small alleys in Venice. You can put your luggage in train station or some shops near train station. If you have to travel with big baggage then follow the hotel's instruction to take boat to the stop near the hotel. From there is a short walk to hotel. The location is unique as it's located at quiet yet charming & beautiful part of Venice. I'm glad to stay there & experience different side of Venice.

Enjoyed our two night stay here - lots of building work going on so they gave us breakfast free. Very helpful multi-lingual staff, and only ten minute's walk from Rialto, St Mark's and 5 from vaporetto in quiet non-touristy area. Only complaint is the thin walls that make it a bit noisy. I've only rated price/quality ratio as 7, but that's about as good as Venice gets I suspect.

The garden was small but lovely I would suggest this hotel for couples not families.

Considering the prices in venice in the summer, this hotel is an excellent choice. The staff is very friendly and welcoming, even though not completly english-speaking (which is not really a problem, as there are many other ways to comunicate), the rooms are decent and the garden is a beautifull small getaway from the bustle. Recommended for everyone! And a note to the people complaining about breakfast: you are obviously not used to the plastic-wrap-instant-coffee stuff that you get at other places in italy. So, while it's definitely not great, it's still o.k. If you like something fancier, just get the room without breakfast and choose from the countless alternatives.

For a cheaper hotel in Venice, it was wonderful! I loved the old antique decor and the owner was a wonderful woman with a friendly personality making it pleasant to stay. The breakfast is free and served in a beautiful courtyard! The rooms don't look out to any cool canals or even streets (they look out to the courtyard or to the neighbors yard), but overall it was a nice stay & with air conditioning!

We arrived very late (4:00 AM) at the hotel, because a trouble in our flight, but the hotel's ownwer kept our reservation and the next morning he gave us breakfast out of the used hour, only for we had slept enough. We think that Casa Boccassini is a very good place to sleep in Venice.

Petit dej à la hauteur du reste. Superbe petit jardin à redécouvrir sous la chaleur. Situation: suffisament loin des sentiers touristiques pour gouter la Venise habitée. A conseiller.

Let me start by saying that my wife and I stayed in 14 different hotels for our European vacation in the summer of 2006 (Aug – Sept) – so all our reviews will be comparing the hotels on the trip. European hotels are smaller and simpler than American hotels, so it doesn’t seem fair to compare them. For the most part, breakfast in a B&B is not worth it – especially if you have to pay a little more. We generally ate one morning at the included breakfast, and then skipped the other mornings – looking for a local place to enjoy breakfast. Also, all of our hotels had small bathrooms and very small showers – so be prepared with a good attitude and knowledge that you are there to see the sights – not soak in the tub! Staff was very nice – but unable to direct us when lost. Make sure to follow directions closely – as the addresses in Venice to not follow common logic. It might be helpful to get the exact address, as the listed address is for an area – not the specific street. Room was not great – but not bad. Not really close to anything, but nice if you want to be in a less busy area. Might stay again if I couldn't find anything in a similar price range.

The hotel is several streets from the main Rialto/tourist area so it was fairly quiet. The twin room looks nothing like the renovated double room photos although it was still clean and comfortable. The shared bathroom was never an issue as there was a room with both shower and toilet and another room with just a toilet. The staff was friendly and though not a lot of English was spoken we managed quite well. Very nice garden and breakfast areas. The hotel is conveniently located only a few streets from the Fondamente Nuove vaporetto stop. Be sure to pick up a local map upon your arrival to the city so you have a better chance of finding your way. Even with a map navigating your way through the giant labyrinth of Venice can be incredibly challenging. VERY IMPORTANT: As mentioned in previous reviews you need to locate 5295 Calle del Fumo. This is where Cannaregio intersects with Calle del Fumo and the hotel sign can been seen from there.
