The Space

Sweet, comfortable and well connected with all the main attractions in Venice.
This lovely apartment is situated less then 10 minutes walk to San Marco square, less then 1 minute to Arsenale vaporetto stop (here you'll find boat to airport, Lido, train station/Piazzale Roma, Murano, Burano and Rialto), 15 minutes from the beaches but, at the same time, it's in a quite and nice position, just behind the mass and the centre.
Wonderful canal, bridge and lagoon view!

The apartment is on the first floor, bright and quite. It has an private entrance hall, kitchen, 1 double bedrooms, 1 single room, living-room and bathroom with shower.
Fitted kitchen, washing machine, air conditioning, TV, microwave and hairdryer.

The final cleaning (50€) and tourist tax are not included, to be payed by cash on the flat during the check in.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Nous avons passé une semaine formidable à Venise. L'appartement est décoré avec gout, très bien situé et bénéficie d'une très belle vue sur la lagune. Irène est une personne très agréable. elle nous a donné des adresses de restaurants et nous a prévenus avant l'acqua alta. Nous reviendrons certainement.

  • My husband and I stayed at Irene's place in Arsenale in December 2013 for a week and we enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment was as described, very cozy and warm, very quiet, with everything we needed, many nice pictures and other lovely objects, and a view of a canal from all the windows. As many previous guests pointed out, it is very conveniently located, and it is also an excellent value for money. Irene was most kind and helpful before and during our stay, and flexible regarding our departure time, and we could not have wished for a better experience overall. We would definitely recommend this place and would stay there again.

  • Sweet Arsenal is a great place to stay in Venice - central and close to the Arsenal vaporeto, clean modern and cozy - Irene was most helpful in providing us with wifi for our mails, we were greeted by Lucca- Irene's brother - who was extremely nice and helpful- would love to come again and recommend it to everyone who wants to be in Venice and to feel at home!

  • A lovely, peaceful home in a special location. The flat is outfitted with everything needed for a comforatble stay. Irene was most gracious and helpful.

  • Our stay at Sweet Arsenal was close to perfect. The apartment was spotless and so very comfortable. The location was very convenient while quiet and residential. We would stay there again and recommend it to anyone who wants a lovely place to stay in Venice. The location is especially good for going to the Biennale.

    Irene was totally professional and helpful with all of our questions.
    This was our first airbnb stay and it proved to us that airbnb is the way to go.

  • We were at Irene's apartment at the end of october 2013 for 6 days during the Biennale. The location is fabulous. From every window you can the canal that leads to the Arsenale. The apartment was tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable, and we had everything we needed for our stay. Many vaporettos stop 2 minutes from the apartment and San Marco is about a 15 minute walk, Rialto also a 15 minute walk.

    Even de boat to the airport was at the Arsenale stop! Irene and her brother will helpful in answering our questions and accommodating in arrival and departure times.

    Lots of restaurants nearby and we stayed in two nights and cooked for ourselves.

    We can highly recommend it and would like to stay here again on a future trip to Venezia.

    Well done Irene!!

  • We stayed for a whole week in october 2013 in the charming flat of Irene.

    The apartment was very clean and cosy and nice and quiet and very well located. The vaporetto 'Arsenale' is 2 minutes away. The supermarket and various restaurants are very close by.

    It is also great that you have always a spectacular view on the laguna and when you go by foot to San Marco (10 minutes), it is a delight to see the churches and towers and skyline of Venice in always different light situations.

    Our host Irene was a very charming and sweet lady, very alert and followed up almost instantly.

    This apartment is perfectly located when you want to visit the Biënnale with the Arsenale and the Giardini on close by walk distance.

  • Irene verhuurt een mooi appartement net buiten de grote drukte van Venetie, op een mooie plek, zeer nabij vaporetto station Arsenale. Het is van alle gemakken voorzien. Irene heeft ons prima ontvangen en mooie tips gegeven voor een uitstekend verblijf. Venetie blijft een geweldige stad en is vanuit dit appartement zeer goed te verkennen.
