Bed & Breakfast



Guests in this venue liked
  • In the city center
The 14th-century building is part of the Palazzo Zorzi complex, known as "Bon", on calle de l'Arco, adjacent to the Palazzo Zorzi Galeoni to which it was historically connected. The name "Bon" comes from a Zorzi tenant who, in the 18th century, lived in the apartment upstairs.

The Arabesque B&B has 3 bedrooms and a shared bathroom. We can accommodate a single person in the single room, and up to 4 people in the larger room.

The bathroom is spacious and equipped with a bathtub and bidet.

The breakfast room is equipped with a coffee machine and kettle, so guests can manage their own schedules without any time constraints.

The room opens onto a delightful terrace from which you can see the bell tower of San Marco.

Hey from Paola

Member since August 2010 | 36,454 hits
The idea was born out of the need to find work from my passion for dance.

After a couple of years of unemployment and tired of inventing life every day, I decided to challenge myself and open a Bed & Breakfast in Venice - the name Arabesque comes from my passion for oriental dance.

I live in the Bed & Breakfast with my cat named HOUDINI. The very welcoming environment is furnished in the style that I am passionate about.

There are 3 guest rooms, for a total of 8 beds.

We are in the heart of the city, 5 minutes from Piazza San Marco and 10 minutes from Rialto.

It is a great opportunity to meet people from all over the world, converse in French, my mother tongue, and improve my school English.

Hospitality and friendliness distinguish us among our customers, who never fail to leave comforting messages in the guestbook.

Ho passato 3 giorni splendidi a Venezia, dormendo in questa struttura. Paola, la proprietaria, è dolcissima, si è presa cura di me e mi ha raccontato un sacco di storie sulla città. Il b&b è a 2 passi da piazza San Marco ma nonostante tutto è in una via tranquillissima completamente fuori dalla “folla” di turisti.

The answer from the host:
Grazie, e stato un vero piacere ospitarti. Speriamo di rivederci.

Ottima accoglienza da parte dell edue signore che gestiscono il B&B. Massima disponibilità nonostante un piccolo contrattempo con una stanza si sono subito adoperate nel rendere confortevole al massimo il soggiorno a Venezia! Piacevole scambio di parole e di luoghi da visitare con la Sig. Paola. Davvero simpatica e spontanea. Posizione centrale a pochi passi da Rialto e P. za San Marco. Consigliatissimo!
