Very close to all the action.

  • 4 of 5

Nice place. Close to everything. Happy with rooms and beds. AC worked well for us. Wifi was off and on. We did not use the kitchen.

Nice space for a family with space to relax.

Great location, lots of space

  • 5 of 5

The flat is located halfway between the Rialto bridge and Piazza San Marco - perfect location for Venice.

We were surprised at how large the flat was, with lots of room. Kitchen was well setup and the lovely dinning room and living room was great for eating-in and visiting. Bedrooms were large and the beds comfortable, each with it's own bathroom ensuite. Water pressure and temperature was good. No issues at all during our stay. Would highly recommend.

Fantastico!

  • 5 of 5

Not only was it a fantastic location - the furnishings made us feel like we were in a palace. The help getting a water taxi to transport us from the train station to a dock that was meters away went off without a hitch. we loved hearing the church bells and the singing from down below. Unfortunately the gelateria was steps away too. :) We would definitely stay there again. Grazie mille for sharing your palace with me and mi famiglia.

Do not rent this apartment, there are others that are nicer and cleaner in Venice, this is dated!

  • 2 of 5

This apartment was located about 10 minutes from San Marco Square, a great location. However, the apartment was dated with regard to furniture, bathrooms and overall appearance. We were told when we arrived that we could use the microwave but not to use the oven.......interesting? The coffee pot was missing a handle and we asked to have a new one so we didn't burn our hands.......never received one! We could not make coffee each morning.

One of the bathroom tubs was not cleaned and the shower curtain had mold on the bottom.

I emailed the girl who checked us in inquiring about the coffee pot and the dirty bathtub and we never received a response. I would not recommend this property to anyone.

Owner's Response: The apartment is a large and typical Venetian flat with antique hand-made furniture, as we see from the pics very well, with ancient and fine Venetian flooring and rooms decorated on the walls with precious fabrics. An apartment typically charming old Venetian, this is its characteristic, very different from the many apartments available for rent in venice with new furniture and modern look and it's chosen for that. We give a lot of attention at the cleaning, they require time and professionality because of the size and type of apartment. We are very sorry that there has been a complaint in this sense and we will certainly check with more attention. Specifically, we talked with the person who is responsible for cleaning and we verified that the tub in question was not dirty but there are some marks on the bottom which cannot be removed . The guest has stayed only three nights and he contacted us by email for the broken handle instead contact us by phone (we leave two different phone numbers where we are always available) unfortunately we have seen late in the evening and we were not able to solve the problem for the next day's breakfast (however there is another smaller coffee pot in apt). Unfortunately with the guest we had communication problems from the start. We had to ask several times the arrival time (we specify very well that we need it 5 days before their arrival) and the day of check-in we called many times for having news, never having been contacted. We are terribly sorry for the tone of the review, on Homeaway is our first review because we are present from a short time and it cannot be compared with the many other positive review that we received on other sites on which is from more long time ...

Appartamento confortevole ma da aggiornare con tutti gli impianti tecnologici Il Wi-Fi non funziona

  • 4 of 5

Dovreste curare in particolare Phone nei bagni e tv oltreche il Wi-Fi

Check in troppo sbrigativo . Sarebbe opportuno fornire almeno 1 bottiglia di acqua

Ed elementi fondamentali per chi arriva .

Owner's Response: Grazie per il vostro feedback. Abbiamo controllato il wifi e tutto sembra funzionare correttamente. Siamo spiacenti, se ci aveste informati durante il soggiorno avremmo potuto verificare il problema ed intervenire tempestivamente. Elena ha dedicato un'ora al vostro check in e ci siamo anche resi disponibili per incontrare un ospite arrivato separatamente e consegnargli un ulteriore mazzo di chiavi dell'appartamento. Ci spiace se non è stato apprezzato.

Ottima

  • 4 of 5

Eravamo quattro colleghe a soggiornare presso la struttura, per lavoro, per cui ci servivano spazi comodi ed indipendenti e la casa ha soddisfatto pienamente le nostre esigenze! Le camere comode, spaziose e silenziose, gli spazi comuni enormi e accoglienti in pienissimo centro. Solo le tv un po' datate ma d'altro canto a Venezia c'è così tanto da vedere che la TV è l'ultima cosa! Aggiungerei Solo dell'acqua e qualcosa per la prima colazione per gli ospiti, in quanto se si arriva tardi per provvedere con una spesa, non c'è nulla con cui fare colazione o da bere in casa.Per il resto la consiglio vivamente

The elegant palazzo housing the apartment is located only 150 metres from Piazza San Marco, a location that allows its guests to easily reach the most famous sights of Venice.

Piazza San Marco. The living room of Venice, is an immense area paved in stone called pietra d’Istria, enchanting for its dimensions, but especially for the presence of the a splendid Basilica adorned with golden Byzantine mosaics and dominated by the four horses of Constantinople; the cupolas above them are among the most outstanding symbols of the splendor of the Republic of Venice, along with the spectacular five arches with bas reliefs.

Palazzo Ducale. In the 14th century, the 'palazzo of power' underwent the final expansion that transformed it into a majestic residence with a gothic profile facing the piazza. The salon of the Gran Consiglio (High Council), with frescoes by masters such as the Tiepolo, Titian and Veronese, is a room with monumental dimensions mesmerizing any visitor. Across from the palazzo, the hundred meters of the and Bell Tower of San Marco need no introduction.

Rialto. Heading north from San Marco, take the street of the Haberdasheries, among fashion display windows and traditional Venetian shops, you will discover the spectacular geometry that defines the bridge, Ponte di Rialto: another icon of the city recognized around the world. Indulge your senses in the lively daily markets and the joyous atmosphere invading the nightspots in the evening at the hour of the aperitif!

From Rialto, the ferry direct to San Marco (lines 1 and 2) is the perfect way to see the second part of the Canal Grande; this route, perhaps the most interesting, winds among extraordinary palazzos on the water, sites of major museums (Cà Rezzonico, Palazzo Grassi, Palazzo Balbi, Guggenheim Foundation) and flows, after Punta della Dogana, into the Bacino San Marco, between the the island, isola di San Giorgio and Riva degli Schiavoni.

Remaining in the section called sestiere di San Marco, in the vicinity of apartment Duodo Gregolin, dedicate some of your time to admiring the original Scala Contarini called del Bovolo: immersed in the calli around campo San Bortolo, it has an unusual spiral form, to which it owes its name, and from its top offers an enchanting view over the roofs of Venice.

During your stay in Venice, stop at any authentic inn or bacaro, step outside the usual itineraries, and lose yourself in the calli of a city that asks nothing more, so great is its magnificence. Venice is even more enchanting during a romantic evening at the Zattere, a stroll through the old quarter, sestiere di Castello and by day at the isola della Giudecca. Seeing is believing!
