A decent location in an otherwise geographically complicated city!

  • 4 of 5

Once you've mastered navigating the streets, this apartment relatively simple to locate from the Rialto.

The accommodations were absolutely adequate. The small library of travel publications was convenient and useful. Also, our contact Bernadatte was patient with us as we had a few complications arriving from the airport via water taxi.

The apartment is next to the famous Bovolo staircase. With that, a long lineup of tourists is usually outside of your door. However, this didn't bother us as we only slept in the apartment or got ready before our evening plans. At which point, most tourists were doing the same and the short laneway was cleared.

Tiny but convenient

  • 3 of 5

Apartment is very small with limited seating. It is on first floor across from Scala del Bavola so people are immediately outside windows during daylight hours resulting in limited privacy. The apartment is not comfortable. The 'kitchen' is a hidden tiny sink inside a cabinet, a stovetop underneath a countertop and a mini fridge. It is in a very convenient location, however, within walking distance to many major sights.

Very convenient location in San Marco

  • 4 of 5

Good apartment for family of 2 little kids spending 3 nights discovering for first time Venice.

We've been kindly welcomed by Valentina at the Rialto Vaporetto stop and walked us to the very close by apartment.

The flat was cleaned but the floor has not been wiped enough this time, so bring yours slippers with you.

If back in Venice we will choose again this flat.

Great location and fun apartment!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed there in July and it was great for 3 nights and our family of 5. I loved the character of the place. The manager was very helpful too! Everything was in easy walking distance which is wonderful! A different sofa bed would give it an excellent in my mind..but the price was great for sleeping 5 people. Overall I would stay there again, especially if it was with2-3 people. Thanks for the great stay!
