BED AND BREAKFAST BEAUTIFUL CANALSIDE PALAZZETTO. CENTRE OF VENICE

Santa Croce Hotel Rental Photos and Description

Bed and breakfast. 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, (Maximum four people.)

I have two bedrooms which I offer to guests on a bed and breakfast basis. Bedrooms are double or twin but single guests are also welcome. The bedrooms have air-conditioning and private or ensuite bathrooms. Guests are very welcome to use other parts of the palazzo, which include a lovely salon and also a charming courtyard garden.

The prices shown in the caption are for two people in the cheaper double or twin bedroom on the second floor. Prices depend on season, which room and the number of nights. For the full and accurate price list please contact me directly or look at my website.

If you would like to see additional photos and other information, again please contact me directly for the website address.

A simple continental breakfast (croissants, tea/coffee, cereal, fruit) is included and your room is cleaned daily. Guests can help themselves to tea and coffee at all times in the dining room for which there is no charge. Other drinks may be charged for. Guests wishing to be given a boat tour of the city can arrange this on arrival. There would be an additional charge for this, starting at €100 but depending on how long a tour you want.

About Nicholas Blair-Fish

I'm English and have lived in Venice for a number of years. I have retired recently and when I have time I paint.

Nicholas Blair-Fish purchased this hotel in 2002

Why Nicholas Blair-Fish chose Santa Croce

Many people dream of buying a home in Venice. I was lucky to able to do so. Originally I was looking for just an apartment but I also wanted some outside space such as a garden or terrace as well as a mooring which is hard to find in Venice. This house had both.

What makes this hotel unique

Personally I love this part of Venice. It is not the most touristy but is close to the places that tourists will want to visit. You can walk almost everywhere. For me, the most important things are the garden which one certainly needs in the summer and the canal as I find it best to get around by boat; it's also handy being a few minutes walk from both Piazzale Roma, the bus/coach station (for getting in and out of Venice) and the grand canal should I need to take vaporetto (water bus). And not least this is a genuine Venetian 'palazetto; not little flat conversion. The house is light, spacious and airy which alone is slightly unique in Venice as many houses and flats are dark and gloomy. Of course some people like the dark and gloomy gothic look!!

A QUIRKY AND UNIQUE EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
We were not sure what to expect when we booked our stay with Nick in his canal side palazzetto in central Venice... But gosh, when we arrived, we knew we had made a great choice. It was sheer luck that we even found the place online and booked it. The photos do not do it justice (as another reviewer previously mentioned.) It is more like a mini palace than any kind of 'bed and breakfast' offering I have had the pleasure to encounter.
Nick's Malcanton home is full of charm, antiques, marble staircases, high ceilings, beautiful paintings, richly embroidered Venetian-style curtains and silk wallpapers, not to mention how well appointed the building is with two sides overlooking the canal. The place itself is old and dripping in history, but also spotlessly clean.
Nick himself is an interesting character who gave us frank accounts of the area and what to expect, which was great. He was thankfully very flexible as to what time we wanted to eat breakfast as I am a late riser. We were even lucky enough to be brought over to the small island of Murano in his boat when he had some free time. We really appreciated this as we hadn't gotten around to riding in a gondola during our stay.
I don't know if we would have had such a great holiday if we hadn't stayed where we did. Getting around was very easy and there are at least two gorgeous restaurants within a two minute walk of Malcanton. Almost everywhere serves the same(ish) menu, so you just keep on walking until you need a coffee or a glass of prosecco and you're set.
We would highly recommend Nick's 'Bed and Breakfast' to anyone who wants a calm and relaxing holiday in an opulent setting. Venice itself has a very mellow vibe. And that is certainly true of our stay in Malcanton with our late mornings, canal side walks, chats with Nick about Venetian history and boat rides to the islands. Oh, and did I mention that there's a baby grand piano in the living room?

wonderful full of history and good location

  • 4 of 5
the house is full of antiques history and charm,. Photos don't do it justice. The beds are really comfortable, really clean rooms, Bathroom lovely, Owner doesn't like early starts for breakfast so try and book later tours
within walking distance of the bus, taxi terminus and a 10 min walk to vaparetto. (water bus) where u can enjoy the bus ride along the grand canal to St Marks square. There is a lovely restaurant in S.Toma square , Trattoria S.Toma,,, there is another restaurant along a canal , lovely location called La Gardiner, service was awful and the waiter conned us into buying a 28 euro bottle of wine telling us it was a house wine,, be aware of cover charge vat service charge as it adds a lot to the bill
Definitely book ur tours in advance, avoid the queues . Do the secret tour at Doges Palace ,, well worth the money and also try the walking tour and gondola ride, again interesting and a cheaper way to get a gondola ride
A visit to the islands is interesting too, Murano Burano and Torcello,,, had a fantastic long weekend ,, really recommended and enjoy it

It is ideally situated for visitors to Venice being a short walk from Piazale Roma (the main arrival point) and also a few minutes from the vaporetto stop San Tomå on the Grand Canal the main waterway though Venice. Close to the Frari Church and Scuola San Rocco it is in the historic heart of Venice.
