Overview

Castello Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 5

The strength of this beautiful apartment is its location, no more than 50 meters from Riva degli Schiavoni, very close to San Marco square, to Palazzo Ducale and the Basilica, just one vaporetto (water bus) stop from San Giorgio island, from the Salute church, from the Tadao Ando museum, and just three stops from the Gallerie dell'Accademia, from the Biennale exhibition (in the opposite direction) and generally very close to all the most interesting cultural sites.

But at the same time it is also located in one of the more traditional, typical and characteristic sestiere (quarter) in Venice: Castello with a lot of very good restaurants and trattorias (Remigio, Corte Sconta, Al Covo are among the best in Venice and they are at just few steps from your apartment...), or really old and veracious bars, osterias and 'bacari' if you are a food and wine lovers.

It is also very close to all the shops you could need: supermarkets, butcher's, greengrocers, bakeries, one fish shop, wine shops, pharmacy are really just behind the corner.

Great find!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 days in this apartment in January. Great location (3 min from Piazza St. Marco) but very quiet. Quite spacious, had enough hot water, good water pressure, and the kitchen was equipped well enough. Elisa (the person who greeted us) was very nice & gave us a bottle of champagne and "pan d'oro", which we enjoyed. I would definitely stay here again. A good value for your money.

Too bad

  • 2 of 5

Let's start on a positive note, the location was great, near San Marco Place, other attractions and restaurant. It was also very quiet.

The photos showing the apartment were not reflecting the reality. At the first sight Yes but...

The bed was more than unconfortable, the 4 chairs of the dining set were broken. In the diswasher some plates and pots had been left unclean and it was covered of mildew. The smell was awful.

We can not recommend this location and we are sorry about it.

After many rentals with VRBO, it is our first disappointment.

Owner's Response: Dear Sir and Madam, I've been very surpised by reading your review at first but after that I've immadiately understood that you were talking about another accomodation in Venice, not about mine which has brand new beds and matresses, brand new chairs and table and it is really and always immaculate, as you can easily see by reading ALL the other reviews. Kindest regards

I would stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

The owners gave us very detailed instructions on how to get there. The apartment was very clean and the kitchen was adequate. We stayed in February, but the apartment was warm enough. No spectacular views, but the location was excellent. Quiet, but close to everything. We had no fear of getting lost because we just looked for San Marco on our way home. We loved wandering around Venice. Not recommended for handicapped or elderly, since you have to climb a couple flights of stairs to enter the apartment.

Cosy appartment and the very best location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment from 01/11/11/ to 07/11/11. 5 people, Russians.

This is really cozy and comfortable apartment. Two bedrooms (one with a double bed, another one with two single beds + sofa), maximum for 5 people. The kitchen is equipped with all kinds of household appliances and dishes. There are also children’s devices: baby high chair and a child’s step for a toilet. The heating is regulated by guests themselves and works all right, as well as other facilities.

Location is very good: 5-7 min by foot to San Marco cathedral, 3 min to vaporetto stop “San Zacharia” where vaporetto to the islands of the Laguna (Murano, Burano, Torchello) departure from. But despite the location near such tourist attractions as the Piazza San Marco and the Doge Palace, the neighborhood of the apartment is rather quiet and stands aside from main tourist roots, what makes it very pleasant for walking around exploring this really old and atmospheric part of the city.

We enjoyed staying in this apartment. Sincerely recommend it. Great thanks to the owners!

Great, quiet location in an overrun Venice

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for 3 days at the end of April. Spacious, well equipped, great location. We had no need for heat or a/c so I don't know how they work. The shower could use a better cleaning between guests as it was moldy and the mold could be easily wiped off (ie - it wasn't stained). Otherwise the apartment was very clean and the building was pleasant. Owners had just installed wifi and charged 6e/day. It worked well once we were able to correctly type the very very long password. It's an excellent location because you are away from the crowds but close to the major sites.

Owner's Response: Dear DL, thank you very much for your positive review. Sorry so much for the problem in the shower, it is always perfectly cleaned and I check it personally but this time the apartment has been unused for a couple of weeks so probably mold formed in the meantime. See you next time, with the shower perfectly cleaned! Kind regards

great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Overall my husband and I thought this was a great place to stay in Venice. We had read reviews of cheap hotels that mentioned tiny rooms, so we were keen to book an apartment. This property was very spacious and great value! It was nicely decorated and well equipped including a hair dryer for the ladies. It was excellently located. The hot water was a bit temperamental but a nice hot shower could be obtained. We weren't able to access Wifi at the apartment but this wasn't a big problem for us. The owners provide directions to nearby shopping which was very helpful too. I would recommend this apartment! There were a few steps to carry bags up - about 2.5 floors of stairs.
