The hotel is so far away from center of Venice. You have to pay for the water bus to the boat. The boat was very small and the picture is deceiving. The bunk bed was so low and you can not sit straight and it hit my head 4 times. The room was so small and no chair to sit. I would never go back.

"Enjoy Venice from a small distance"
It was so nice to be away from the crazy crowds of central Venice and relax Sofia was a sweetheart and so helpful. I loved it and thoroughly enjoyed my one day/ night there. I booked it the last minute since I was winging this trip and it was a perfect for me, if you are not a boat person it would most likely not be a good fit. Small spaces and rocking /rolling so be ready for it. You get what it looks like on the site. No complaining :-)

"Rocky start, tolerable stay"
Very disappointing stay, especially after reading all the great reviews and seeing the rating. We arrived on a Sunday. we were relying on wifi hotspots to stay connected and received an email on our arrival in Venice to inform us he boat was out on the ocean and would only return that night - information that was apparently supposed to appear on hotels.com's site (I checked - it doesn't). After being assured the boat would return at 7PM, we waited until 9:30 PM for the boat. After this (disappointing) start, it got worse. The bathroom was exceptionally small and on arrival our toilet was overflowing - luckily not into our room, but still rather disgusting. The wifi was slow and limited to the communal areas. Even though the site says full speaking English staff, the only person who could speak (passable) English was the captain. We wanted to cancel our second night's booking but could not reach the management on the contact details provided until after our stay. The only redeeming factor was the breakfast (which was outstanding), and the aforementioned captain that let us leave our baggage and helped with transfers on check out - basically the only reason this rating is not a zero. I was rather surprised that this 'hotel' has such a high rating

"Very nice stay on Sarah Cruise"
First time sleep on a boat and it was very interesting. The hotel staff is nice,friendly and helpful. The room is clean and just like shown in pictures. The location is very close to the public transport. We had very nice stay on Sarah Cruise.

Staying on a yacht was cool but the facilities were not what I was expecting. Staff were often not available, sometimes they just left with no one working at all making it impossible to ask for anything. The wifi was often turned off and not usable, especially when staff were not on board to enable it.

"An ever changing view..."
Fabulous location, couldn't be better placed to explore Venice and the Islands using the public water buses, including the night service. We stayed in a twin room, en-suite which was cleaned daily with fresh towels provided and although the storage space is not huge, you must remember that this is a yacht after all and holdalls or small cases are advisable. You are ensured a warm welcome from Nelli, the host, and the buffet breakfast is excellent with plenty to chose from, including cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurts, cheese, meats, croissants, rolls, cakes, coffee, tea and toast! Hotels in Venice don't usually have outdoor seating areas so being able to sit on the deck in the afternoon sunshine was just wonderful and so interesting watching the ocean liners and cruise ships pass by. Should I visit Venice again I will definitely stay on the yacht again.

"An amazing "one off" experience"
Our stay on Sarah cruise shio was an amazing experience. The owners were welcoming and attentive from start to finish and made our stay very relaxing and special. Would definately go again in the future and will certainly recommend to friends. A "one off" experience !

"A yacht on a canal in Venice - what an experience."
This is a different experience as you are staying on a yacht. The accommodation is quite small however we thoroughly enjoyed our stay as it was so very different. The staff are outstanding - very helpful and do their utmost to make your stay enjoyable. Great views of Venice. The water taxi stops about 20 m from the yachts so it is very easy to get to other areas. Breakfast is provided and you can sit on the decks day or night and have a drink or some food. We found the whole experience wonderful and so very different from what we have done before. A great place to stay for couples and an excellent way to experience what Venice really is all about.

"Belle idee mais Mauvais expérience !!!"
+++ Personnel serviable Bien desservis par les Vaporetto --- Petit déjeuner prévu mais fin de compte pas desservis. Odeur de peinture dans la chambre et dans le bateau en général. WC trop Trop Petit... Quartier pas trop propre. Débit WI-FI très très faible Couette sale.

"Notte sull'acqua... in camera doppia"
Ottima posizione, bello lo yatch, buona colazione, bagno privato. Ovviamente è la cabina di una barca, oltre alle scarse dimensioni più si va sempre su e giù! Ma con 40€ a testa siete a 2 fermate dal centro di Venezia! Lo staff è disponibilissimo e cortese, quindi punto in più!

"Déçu!"
Nous avons été très bien accueillis. Par contre nous avons été très déçus de notre chambre. Des taches noires et une odeur de moisissure étaient présentes ce qui a fait que nous avons décidé de plier bagage.

"Buena estancia en el barco"
El capitan Giovanni fue muy amable y servicial en todo momento y contribuyó a que tuviesemos una agradable estancia. El estado del barco y el camarote buenos. Como aspectos a mejorar estarian la señal wifi, el servicio de limpieza al hacer la habitación y la chica que servia el desayuno, que no podia ser mas seca! Por lo demas, recomendable. Cabe reseñar que el barco se movia hasta bien entrada la noche, debido al oleaje provocado por el trafico que pasaba por el canal. A tener en cuenta si te mareas

Venise et dormir sur un bateau... Tout était parfait. Il faut comprendre que dormir sur un bateau ce n'est pas le confort d'un 4 étoiles, mais quel magnifique compromis. Week-end en amoureux, accueil souriant, proximité du vaporetto, petit déjeuner impeccable... Sortir des logements habituels, et vivre un peu serrés mais originalement!

"Baño minúsculo y cama pequeña e incómoda"
Por 130 euros he estado en lugares mejores, la verdad no volvería en mi vida, y si la chica rubia Nelly es muy maja pero no valoro un alojamiento porque la dueña rica sea simpática sino por todas las cosas. Las toallas estaban rotas de tanto usarlas y las mantas eran antiguas. La ciudad donde está amarrado el Yate es un barrio solitario y que da mal rollo, y para irte a comer tienes que andar una hora. En verano puede estar muy bien, pero en otoño tendría que ser mucho más barato.

Der Ankerplatz der Sarah Cruise liegt super nah an der nächsten Wasserbus-Anlegestelle. Tagsüber fahren die Vaporettos alle 10 Minuten, abends alle 20 Minuten und Nachts nach Mitternacht alle 40 Minuten. Klasse! Die Wirtin Nelly ist ausgesprochen freundlich, hilfsbereit und um das Wohl ihrer Gäste bemüht. Die Kajüten sind klein, aber für einen Kurzaufenthalt vollkommen ausreichend. Nur die Luft in der Kabine war trotz Klimaanlage im August zu warm. Das Schaukeln des Bootes hat mich überhaupt nicht gestört, man wurde sanft in den Schlaf geschaukelt. Die Aussicht beim Frühstück auf dem Oberdeck ist toll.
