THE ONE BEDROOM APARTMENT

San Polo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Convenient self catering: couples, families or small group of friends. (max 6)

The location is in the heart of the historic area of Venice, few steps to the Rialto bridge and 10 min. walk to St. Marks, a walking distance to all tourist attractions museums, monuments and gondola-rides. Restaurants, typical Venetian wine bars, all kinds of stores are around the corner. The area is lively but the location is quiet. Easy, to get here from the port, airport, train station, car park. On the ground floor of a centuries old building the apartments were recently restored and furnished with modern appliances, but the original wooden beams are still there giving cosy antique Venetian atmosphere. Adjacent but separate and autonomous units, each with bath with shower and kitchenette: a studio-apartment about 16 square meters for couples and the one bedroom apartment about 35 sq. Meters that can accommodate up to 6 people.

Usual comment of my guests:what we were looking for: affordable, cosy, comfortable and in a perfect central location. Ask 4 a beautiful apart. in Lido

Cozy & Comfortable- I Shall Return!

This is a review for BOTH the studio units AND the one-bedroom.

I just returned from one month as a guest in these apartments. I had the pleasure of staying in both the studio and one-bedroom apartments and I look forward to being Carlo's guest again in the future. He is a generous host- before arriving he answered every question with candor and honesty. Throughout my stay he checked in with me to be certain everything was going well and I was happy. Make no mistake, these are not luxury apartments, and do not claim to be, so if you are looking for fluffy towels and 900-count sheets, this is not the place for you.

What I found was perfect for my needs. I cook a lot when I come to Venice. The apartments are very well equipped with utensils and cookware. The furniture is utilitarian but comfortable. The beds in the studios are convertible sofabeds and I had no problem sleeping on them, and I am taller and larger than most. The bed in the one-bedroom is incredibly comfortable - I didn't want to get out of it some days.

Water pressure, no problem. Water temperature, no problem, if you follow the instructions for turning on the water heater in advance in the studios. Apartment temperature - it was very cold in November, below freezing some nights, and I was fine with the small space heater that was provided. Plenty of blankets for the beds can be found.

As for paint peeling mentioned by another reviewer - I have been coming to Venice for more than 10 years and I have yet to find an apartment (especially a ground floor unit) that didn't have cosmetic issues, indoor or out. There may be a spot here or there that is not perfectly painted or plastered, but again, you would be paying so much more for absolute perfection.

There is a bit of noise from the businesses nearby, but this is workaday Venice. It enhanced my experience of being a part of the city.

A note about telephone and computer capabilities. Because these are ground floor apartments, there is barely a signal available inside. This is not uncommon in Venice, and Carlo is very candid about it when asked. It's best to sit in the doorway to use them.

In short, if you are looking for a place truly in the heart of "everyday" Venice on a modest budget, this is it. Carlo is a caring host and works to provide you with a cozy place for a roof over your head in a very expensive city.

Great location but not very good.

  • 1 of 5
The run up staying at this apartment was very good. Carlo was very good with all my questions and was very helpful with the deposit. The location cannot be faulted; two minutes walk from the fish/veg market and 5 mins to the Rialto Bridge. Sadly, the apartment isn't very nice. It's dark and damp. The paint is peeling on the walls, there are cobwebs, the electrics are a health and safety hazard (one socket came out in my hand), a rusty airer in the shower and the showerhead is very poor. There was no toaster, iron or ironing board. When i called to get help, none was given. The towels provided were tiny and rock hard. The beds are about 10 feet from the door of a restaurant kitchen, making the apartment noisy until late. There is very little natural light as both the windows are heavily meshed and look out onto an alleyway. Sorry to say this place cannot be recommended.

We stayed in the one bedroom apartment during May 2011 and were disappointed with the accomodations. There was plenty of space but the apartment is a converted storage area on one of Venice's small alleyways and there are small windows that let in only a little light. To make things worse, the restaurant next door left their back door open and we listened to kitchen noise until midnight. I think the ad posted on Home Away is somewhat misleading by showing the piazza and canal. This apartment was nowhere near either of these.

The location was good, right at the Rialto Mercato, 5 minutes from the Rialto Bridge and an easy walk to San Marco. There were plenty of shops and restaurants in the area and a vaparetto stop near by. The owners are delightful people and gave us good service.

I would not recommend this place to family or friends.
