The host is very nice and accommodating, also she keeps the place very clean and neat. She was available to give us advises on where to eat (which in Venice can be a bit tricky for the prices).
The area is very romantic, with some bridges and water channels right behind the corner, and a gondola service. A cafeteria, osteria, supermarket and an ATM service with tabacchi are reachable in less than 1 minute.
This guest house is 5 minutes from S. Stae vaporetto, 2 boat stops from the train station and close to the city centre, so great location, although, if you are not familiar with Venice and you arrive at night, it might be difficult to spot (the calle is very narrow, so better to keep an eye on the numbers on the doors).
Inside there is also a nice dining area with a fridge in common.
One advise if you arrive by night: do not get badly impressed by the first sight you have of the entrance yard, upstairs in the Ca Spezier is all neat and clean.
Even if it was cold outside, the rooms was sufficiently warm during the night, and with comfortable beds.
· As a house rule, no noises are allowed after 10 pm, and between 1pm and 4 pm. We understood that the place is very close to other regular houses and, of course, maybe other guests are sleeping, so we kept it as quiet as possible. As a tourist though, you might arrive late at night and it might get uncomfortable to try not making noises when even the doors are making sounds when opened (almost all of them).
Advises we feel to give: a bit of oil on the doors junctures, and maybe move the rule for the noises after midnight.
First - great location, right in the heart of Venice! Can't beat that. It's a little tricky to find if you don't have it marked on a map. Free wi-fi, good connectivity.
Staff were friendly, gave us a map, showed us where to go and even gave a route. Showed us some nearby grocery stores.
Room was small, beds were not very comfortable... but the location easily makes up for that. Common are was clean, 2 shared bathrooms for the 4 rooms-for-rent. Only 1 with a shower, but very clean and quite spacious. Common area was comfortable but could only seat MAYBE 6 people.
