Lorenzo was great.Had to wait for us for almost 2 hours as we were given wrong directions by some one. On arrival meet us went through the apartment showed us the workings explaining all we needed to know. Then Lorenzo sat with us and gave us great ideas on were to eat, places to see which really helped as we were only there for 2 days mistake on our part. The suggestions he had were excellent and helped us see more and eat well. The only down side was hot water it was spuratic which is why I give just 4 stars. Truly is a beautiful apartment and easy to get around once you know Venice. Hint get a porter at the station deal them down as Venice is a bit tricky to navigate unless you have a map or GPS

Beautiful apartment and quite spacious. Location was good from train station. The lack of air conditioning and unreliable hot water for showers would be the downside.

Spacious enough for the six of us. Owner met us promptly at the property, he even offered to meet us at the train station. Location was great, restaurants and markets are close. Hot water was an issue. Be sure to get a clear explanation of how things work in the apartment. Property was clean, I would stay here again.

Well appointed, spacious apartment, excellent location

My husband, daughter and I recently visited Venice and had the pleasure of staying in this apartment. It is well equipped with everything you need, just like home. Lorenzo provided excellent customer service. He met us at the train station and escorted us to the apartment and even carried my bag. There were only two bridges to cross, which was nice. I was impressed with how clean the apartment was and the décor was beautiful!

I wish the WIFI was better. When we first arrived, it was slow, but we could connect and access the internet. On day two, we could connect but not access data, which was very frustrating, because we rely on being able to use Google maps to map out our day before leaving the apartment and to research other things. I think it would be worth the investment to upgrade the WIFI, maybe increase the data plan. Also, bring a wash cloth if you are staying here. There are plenty of towels, but no wash clothes.
