Why Ilia Atzeni chose Venice city center

I love my city 'and this house is a typical venetian residence of the 13th century. It 'been furnished in the style of the houses of the doges of the venetian republic, and so you can choose to stay in an environment of 13century and so go back in time and relive a dream ......

Amazing condo in the heart of Venice!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing! Our family of 5 stayed at Doge's House for 6 nights in July 2016 - everything was perfect. The condo was exactly as described, very clean and very well equipped. It was in the heart of Venice, close to Rialto Bridge, St. Mark's Square, gondola stops, etc. Everything exceeded our expectations!

Communication with Ilia was great from the day we booked the condo until after our departure. Ilia was extremely responsive and helpful. When we forgot some personal items, she went out of her way to ensure we got everything back. We had such a wonderful stay at Doge's House and will return in the future. If you consider a trip to Venice, stay at Doge's House!

Perfect location & very clean!

  • 4 of 5

Ilia was there to greet us at the Rialto Bridge stop, as planned. The apartment was perfect for a family of 4, with the two bedrooms and 2 baths. Everything was very clean, and the air conditioning and washer/dryer worked great. Wifi worked, but was a bit iffy at times. Location was perfect, as it was only a 10 minute walk to San Marco Plaza and 10 minutes in the other direction to the Rialto Bridge. A fairly large grocery store was only a 5 minute walk, and Ilia pointed it out to us on the way to the apartment, which was very helpful. There are plenty of restaurants, shops, and small markets quite near the apartment. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because the view from the windows wasn't great, and the decor, although perfectly clean, could have been easily improved. Everything is a bit cold and sterile. They could easily add a small comfy seating area in the kitchen and another comfortable chair or two in the tv room. We loved that due to the central location, it was easy to pop back into the apartment to cool off and have a clean bathroom several times during the day (it's VERY hot in the summer, and public bathrooms are VERY scarce, and generally cost money to use). We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Hi Dear Debbie, thanks for the praise to my apartment. Thanks for the advice about the decor, we will work to improve, I'm sorry that you have not enjoyed the view from our windows, but walking around Venice you'll have noticed that the narrow streets, are a feature of the city, I hope to see you again Thanks again Best Regards Ilia Atzeni

Wonderful location to see Venice

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is wonderful and located in a great place, about 10 minutes walk from St. Mark's Square and Rialto bridge (about halfway between the two) but in a quieter area so you are not dealing with hordes of tourists outside your door - a nice quiet sanctuary from the crowds. There are several restaurants right outside the door, locations to grab gondola rides within a couple of minutes, etc. I highly recommend the apartment as your base for a visit to Venice.

Lovely apartment brilliant location

  • 5 of 5

As your other reviewer have said this apartment was every bit a lovely as described in the details. Perfect location 5-10 minutes walk from the major sites. We arrived via the water bus - not a particularly a pleasant journey so going back to the airport we decided to get a private taxi, if you can go to the extra cost it is well worth it.

Thank you so much Ilia, what a great weekend break!!

Beautiful apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I very highly recommend this apartment! Ilia was exactly where she said she would meet us and showed us some great shops along the way to the apartment. The accommodations were clean and bright and are in an excellent location for launching off on your many Venice adventures. There is a great market close by for breakfast , snack items--and wine and prosecco! Ilia left us a large bottle of chilled water (frizzante!) and a bottle of wine. We stayed here the last three nights of our 10 day trip and it was absolutely perfect. I am definitely staying here again when we return--hopefully soon! Thank you, Ilia!

One small bit of advice for anyone leaving from the Venice airport: Allow plenty of time to get there by Alilaguna (boat) and purchase your tickets before hand. Also, things in Venice seem to be a little more expensive than Rome or Florence, but splurge and enjoy! Ciao!!
