Apartment 3 Minutes Walking from St. Mark's Square
average rating of 4.5 based on 6 reviews

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was, as stated, just a few minutes walk from the main square in Venice, but benefited (due to being up an alleyway) from being quiet at night.

The property was clean and well equipped and the bed was comfortable, though it did creak slightly. The wifi worked very well. There is a hairdryer which I was pleased about because I didn't have to pack mine, but it is one of those low wattage ones like you find in gyms or swimming pool changing rooms, which might not be good enough for some people with very thick long hair.

The sofa was a bit uncomfortable because, I think, it was a sofa bed but it didn't matter to us because we were out of the apartment most of the time. As apartments go, it is fairly small (though typical of a Venetian apartment) and nothing special inside, but you are paying for the great location.

I'd say it's a perfect place to stay if you want to be close to the main tourist sights.

Marco, the owner, met us off the water ferry from the airport and showed us to the property and explained everything to us, like telling us about waste collections and the fact the tap water is safe to drink and providing us with a map and pointing out a few places in it like the Co-op.

Great location in Venice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights this lovely apartment 5 minutes walk from Piazza San Marco and the main vaparatto stop for this area. The apartment is clean and modern. The kitchen and bath are small but that it is typical for an italian city apartment. It's off a small side street behind a restaurant but we felt safe there at all times. The building door locks automatically as well as the second floor apartment door. You can walk to San Marco, the Rialto and catch a vaparatto easily. Marco's father met us on the street, showed us through the apartment, and helped us with directions to the grocery store, where we bought items for snacks and meals. The only addition I would suggest is adding a coffee maker and an iron and ironing board. The apartment is a good value for the money.

Comfortable accommodations in the heart of Venice! Highly recommended!

  • 4 of 5

Marco was an excellent host - he took the time to sit down with us and help us plan our stay. He seemed very professional and trustworthy.

The apartment had everything we needed for a comfortable stay in Venice. It was equipped with a full kitchen (stove, refrigerator/freezer, microwave), a nicely designed bathroom, and two comfortable beds. The apartment was in a secure and quiet building off a main square and well within walking distance of the ferries and major tourist sites.

We would suggest that a heavier window shade be installed in the bedroom in order to block out the light from the street lamp. We also noticed a smell of cooking coming through the exhaust fan in the shower, though these were only minor inconveniences.

Grazie mille, Marco!

Venice stay

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights here. The apartment is very well located within a few minutes walk of St Marks square. It's located on kind of a dingy alley which is off putting at first but really not much different than the rest of Venice. There is a lockable door to get into the building and another heavy lockable door to get into the apartment which is on the first floor, not the ground floor. Two large windows open onto the alleyway below. We felt secure there. The apartment is nicely refurbished and the pictures are a fair representation of the apartment except that there is a microwave on the kitchen counter that takes up most of the counter top. The apartment is fairly spartan but it was clean and pleasant, also quiet. This is not the Ritz Carleton but it is a good value for the price. The agent that handled the rental was polite and helpful. The bathroom is very cramped so it would probably not be suitable for someone who is large or has a hard time getting around. Also the there is not a huge amount of counter space in the kitchen so preparing a large meal could be a challenge. I would recommend this for younger people or an older couple who can still get around fairly well.

Appartement bien pratique pour 4 jours à Venise.

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Marco, à son appartement de Venise.

Le logement est vraiment bien situé, à 3 min de la place Saint Marc. Les sites touristiques sont rapidement joignables, et malgré sa situation géographique centrale, il reste très calme. L'appartement est bien équipé.

Marco a été de bon conseils vis à vis des ballades et des restaurants typiques.
