7 reasons to sleep in Venice at Palazzina Veneziana

Are you thinking about spending some days in the city and you are trying to figure out which is the best place to sleep in Venice.

Obviously we suggest you to stay at Palazzina Veneziana, but we want to explain you why: every day we read our guests’ reviews on Tripadvisor and other review websites concerning our B&B and services. We do that to understand what works and what don’t, in what we are pretty good and how we could get better.

Why should you sleep at Palazzina Veneziana?

We found out 7 reasons to answer this question. 7 reasons why our guests choose us, here they are!

1. Convenient to the train station and airport

One of the most mentioned pros to stay at Palazzina Veneziana is the good location.

Moving around Venice is not really easy if you carry heavy and bulky luggage, in fact in Venice you can reach your destination mainly by foot or eventually by boat. For this reason having a convenient position in relation to the main access points of the city is for sure a plus!

Palazzina Veneziana is just 5 minutes walk from S. Lucia train station, but the most interesting thing is that only one bridge separates the B&B and the train station: something that has to be considered especially in a city with so many bridges like Venice (where you have to drag your luggage up and down along the calles and bridges).

It’s almost the same if we consider the distance to Piazzale Roma, the only access to Venice for cars, buses and motorbikes: just 2 more minutes walk and one more bridge to cross (Calatrava bridge) and you are at Palazzina Veneziana.

For those coming by plane landing at Marco Polo airport everything is even more convenient: Alilaguna, a taxi boat service connecting Venice island to the airport stops almost in front of Palazzina Veneziana door. Nothing easier!

2. Near the ferry stop

Palazzina Veneziana has a convenient location even if you think about the opportunity to move around by ferry!

We always suggest to discover the city by foot, but for who needs to to move fast or for those who want to reach other islands the ferry is necessary.

50 mt far from Palazzina door there is the ferry stop “Guglie”: if you take the 4.2 line from here you can navigate around Venice stopping at the most important points of the city like Fondamenta Nuove (from here you can change and take the ferry to the other islands of the lagoon, Murano, Burano and Torcello), the Arsenale, San Marco, Giudecca island, till Piazzale Roma and the train station.

3. Near the ghetto

Venice ghetto is one of the most interesting areas of the city, moreover it is an history and peace oasis because – I don’t know why – it seems not to be touched by tourist fluxes.

Venice ghetto is the most ancient ghetto in history, with 4 synagogues, a museum and pretty kosher restaurants. And it is just 2 minutes walk from Palazzina Veneziana.

To say the truth near the B&B there are other interesting places that deserve a visit like Ca’ D’Oro and Venice Casino: I told you about them in this other article where you can go deeper in the topic.

Sleeping in Venice, especially at Palazzina Veneziana, gives you the opportunity to easily visit these places, even at night, with a short walk along the calle that will carry you back in a past atmosphere.

4. Historical building

Another valid reason to sleep at Palazzina Veneziana is that inside you can feel like you are thrown back in time. The B&B is an historical building of XVIII Century inspired to the more famous Ca’ Rezzonico. Interiors are decorated with dark wood and wall paper, the rooms recall the style of that age with drapery in the tone of red and green.

The breakfast room has beautiful windows with a Venetian style shape overlooking the Canal: having breakfast here with these view is highly appreciated.

5. Cleanliness and good services

Even if Palazzina is situated in an historical building that is some centuries old, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t offer modern services.

Bathrooms are renovated and inside you can find courtesy kits. About cleanliness, we want you to know that is something we really care about so we are happy to read that also guests acknowledge the cleanliness of rooms and common spaces!

We confirm that the only service that we don’t offer is the lift: rooms and reception are situated on the first floor and to reach them you need to climb the stairs, but that’s not a mission impossible, we assure you!

Anyway if you have heavy luggage or if you need any help our staff is there to help!

6. Very good breakfast

One more reason to sleep in Venice at Palazzina Veneziana is the breakfast (always included in the room price). It’s a varied buffet breakfast really appreciated by our guests also because on request we serve eggs (cooked as you like).

7. Staff helpfulness

Last but not least among the reasons to stay at Palazzina Veneziana according to our guests’ reviews is the staff helpfulness.

We really care about our guests happiness and satisfaction: that’s our job!

For that reason we want that the guests feel comfortable during (but also before and after) their stay ensuring help and assistance in case of need, top services and, most of all, a big smile!
