Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The apartment was just as advertised- very spacious and comfortable. It was also quiet which is a welcome extra. And Sylvia kindly offered to return by post some clothes we left behind. Truly generous! We would certainly recommend this apartment.

  • The. Apartment was great - spacious, comfortable and clean in an excellent location overlooking a canal. A short walk to supermarket. Silvia was very friendly and extremely helpful. We would book this apartment again if returning to Venice.

  • Sylvia, Was the perfect host. She was full of great advice on where to go in Venice. The apartment was just as described in Air BNB, it is very big and you would not get a better value place in Venice. The location was also fantastic as we were away from the tourists and there were lots of restaurants, museums and bars within a short walk. I would definitely come back to stay!

  • The apartment was exactly as advertised. It is very big, well appointed, and well situated. Silvia was kind enough to meet us as we got off the waterbus (San Toma) and walked us to the apartment. She gave us a map of the city and lots of useful information pertaining to our stay. We would highly recommend her!

  • Great location and price for travellers on a budget, with plenty of room for a whole family. Would definitely stay here again if I return to Venice.

  • We had a most comfortable stay at Silvia's very well-situated apartment on Fondamento Taglia Pietra near San Toma. It fronted on to a charming corner with a view to a bridge over a busy back-canal next to the Foscari University. Barges unload on the pavement outside, taxi launches ply up and down and gondolas full of Chinese tourists wave as they quietly glide by. All this can be observed from the big windows of the twin bedroom (which inevitably gets a bit of noise from the activity), the large kitchen and the bathroom. On the opposite bank is the garden of a big building (currently being used as a builders' yard during a big construction project). The back, double-bedroom and the commodious sitting room have many large, double-glazed and well-functioning windows (with mosquito-net blinds) overlooking tranquil back-gardens...very quiet if you like a lie-in or an afternoon nap! In the short time we were there we couldn't really do justice to the apartment's enormous space and amenities. It can easily accommodate 4-5 people (although they'd have to take turns with the single bathroom). For a longer stay the large kitchen and dining room would be well-appreciated by those who enjoy cooking at home and experimenting with all the lovely produce available from the wonderful fish and vegetable markets at the Rialto There are some stalls too in the nearby Campo Santa Margarita - as well as many lively cafes and bars.
    Silvia was very helpful, with good communications during the planning of our short trip, also on our arrival - meeting us to show us the way to the apartment, explaining things and recommending local places to eat. She very kindly allowed a couple of our friends to stay overnight without extra charge to share in our anniversary celebrations. All in all, in spite of incessant rain, a memorable Venetian experience. Thank you Silvia! We hope to return before too long. Jackie & Michael

  • We've had a great (though rather short) stay here. The apartment helped us to feel the spirit of Venice, it has its own style. It's very spacious, really comfortable. The antique and modern furniture are combined with a good taste, and we were impressed by the book collection in the bedroom. There was everything we needed, even coffee and tea. Some of the windows look at the canal, others - at the backyard. The location is good, all the central sights are in walking distance (if you don't get lost in the narrow alleys, but that's Venice). The waterbus stop is several minutes of walking away.
    Silvia was very mindful, gave us valuable advice on the details of arriving to Venice. Despite our late arrival, she organized our check-in. I don't know what we would do if she hadn't warned us about aqua alta and we hadn't bought gumboots:) Thank you, Silvia!
    The only downside was wi-fi - it was frankly slow despite being paid-for.
    So, all in all, we're glad we chose this place for our stay in Venice.
