Perfect Apartment in the heart of Venice!

  • 5 of 5

Ilia was the perfect hostess in the perfect flat in the perfect location in Venice! we had 2 couples stay in this really magnificent apartment and completely enjoyed every second of the experience! Ilia met us at the designated location right by the Rialto taxi station and brought us through the heart of Venice (on a wonderful walking tour of some of her favorite eating spots and other recommendations) to the Doge's House. It is right in the perfect location off of one of the main little streets but turned out to be incredibly quiet for sleeping. The rooms are beautiful, clean, well appointed (even a nice washer AND DRYER) with all of the modern touches! We highly recommend the Doge's House for 2 couples or a family of 4! We will definitely stay there again on our next visit to Venice!

Best in a 6 week Itialian trip

  • 5 of 5

Ilia's Doge's House was excellent. The location is great. In 5 days we walked easily to everywhere! Ilia met us at the Rialto vaporetto stop & guided & helped us to the apartment. We are seniors but found it very manageable. Ilia was very helpful & organised with thorough advice about the apartment & the area. The apartment is like new! It has been built & maintained to a very high standard and had everything we could have wanted. We cooked several times & everything was there. King bed very comfy & bathrooms modern & well equipped. Many T.Vs with huge number of channels. Could get English movies - not that we stayed in to watch TV. This is beautiful Venice after all ! Despite being on a throughway (at 1st floor level), excellent window seals meant little to no noise and a great night sleep. Much larger than we expected and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A very helpful, friendly & well prepared host. Our thanks Ilia, for a memorable stay which made our stay in Venice a delight.

Great place to stay and enjoy Venice

  • 5 of 5

Manager met us at Rialto stop and was terrific in walking with us to the property. She pointed out the closest Coop grocery store and the best gelato place. Doge's House has everything needed for a delightful stay. Location between Rialto and St Mark's Square is terrific. The four of us would strongly recommend it.

Ilia met us at the vaporetto station and took us to the apartment. She showed us a fabulous gelateria on the way, a market very close by and generally helped us settle in. The apartment is lovely. We were a family of 5 and had plenty of room. The area is wonderful, close to everything. We walked to piazza San Marco in about 3 minutes! It was about a 10 minute walk to the Rialto bridge. The apartment has all the amenities and we were even provided with a bottle of Proseco! The kitchen was fully stocked and we enjoyed our morning coffee! We all thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days in Venice. We highly recommend the Doge's House. You won't be disappointed.

Location! Cleanliness! Comfort!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough wonderful things about our stay! The apartment is immaculate!! It is well equipped with toiletries and laundry supplies (there was even a drier! That actually dried).

Ilia was so easy to communicate with, quickly responding to any questions we had. She met us when we arrived in Venice and escorted us to the apartment (This was a necessity as Venice is like a maze of canals and narrow walking paths that sometimes lead you to an unexpected dead end.)

We loved looking out of the window at the activity below. The apartment is in a perfect location as you can easily walk to all of the sights but you are away from the crowds. We walked in every direction from the apartment and always came upon something unique and beautiful. There are many restaurants, cafes and shops in the area. This apartment is conscient to both San Marco as well as Rialto. The area of Dorsoduro had wonderful charm for dinner on the water of the lagoon. Skip the line tickets of Saint Marks Basilica (we down loaded Rick Steve's app and listened to his tour as we went through the Basilica and then again for the square, it's all free to listen to and the skip the line tickets, WELL WORTH IT! Are only €2). The secret itinerary tour of the Doge Palace was wonderful, but in advance! If you can't get tickets buy the audio guide.

We already miss the apartment and Venice!! We would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone!

I believe the apartment was renovated a few years back, but is so clean and well maintained, making you feel that the renovations were completed very recently. The decor is also wonderful!

All of Venice was wonderful! Stop out to see Burano and a quick hop over to Murano (you can see the main strip and a glass blowing demonstration and hop right back on a vaparetto).
