Piazza San Marco can be reached by going along Calle Frezzeria, where you can find, among the others, Gucci and Valentino boutiques.
Accommodation was ok, disappointed with not having a cot for the first night, our change of accommodation 2 1/2 hrs prior to arrival & the host becoming quite rude & pushy with requesting our time of arrival, but accommodation was ok overall. Booked a canal view & didn't end up with canal view due to change of accommodation.
We spent 3 nights in this beautiful apartment and had a great time. Rooms are clean, enough space for 4 people, even 6 people would be ok. The location is amazing (a lot of great restaurants and bars). Check-in and check-out was easy. Nice view. I can definitely recommend the apartment.
Nice apartment only 20min away from the sights. Prices in this area are less expensive which was nice. Karima picked us at at the boat station and brought us to the apartment. She was very nice and gave us some infos about good places to eat amd the nearest supermarkets.
Negative: the bathroom is full of fungi on the walls. Rooms could be in better shape. 1 bed was half broken.
If they fix these problems we would def. Recommend this place! Thanks a lot :)
Very good location: really nice neighborhood with excellent bars and restaurants around, close to city center, and yet very quiet. Nice view on a canal.
The place was clean, pretty and comfortable.
I would recommend it !
The apartment was clean, modern, bright and quiet. It's in a lovely little street, overlooking a small canal with an amazing view. The wi-fi worked well whilst we were there. It's a great location with lots of shops and cafes within 2 minutes walk plus a small supermarket.
We had to hang around with all our luggage for over two hours waiting for Karima to meet us with the key which we weren't too impressed about, especially as the meeting place was a water-bus stop frequented by the local drunks. It would have been better to meet at the apartment. She was, however, very pleasant and informative.
The shower had no power to it (I struggled to rinse shampoo off!) and it didn't attach to the wall properly.
All in all, the apartment was very nice and, as we are planning to visit Venice again in the autumn, we would happily book it again.
I think the pictures make the apartment look bigger than it actually is, but this is a nice apartment in a wonderful area away from the hustle and bustle of tourists. Karima met us at the boat station and was 15 minutes early. She was our favorite "host" of the 4 airbnb places we stayed at -- friendly and very helpful, spending time circling spots on the map for us. The apartment is a good walk from St. Mark's Square, but we really liked the location of it. There are great bars and cafes along the street.
Some things about the apartment: It can get rather cold, and we didn't know if there was heat or how to turn it on. The view from the balcony is wonderful. The wifi is spotty.
They instruct you to take the boat to meet one of their associates at the boat station, but you can actually walk it if you want. It just won't be very fun having to drag your luggage along.
Good stay - good location.
This apartment is very nice. Nice, big (and appeared to be new) windows that opened onto a canal view. It is a 10-minute walk from the train station, but is kind of down the end of an alley. The hosts showed up on time and were very friendly. They provided maps and general directions. I was not crazy about their restaurant recommendations, though. It is ran by a tour company, but they never mentioned it or pushed their tours on you (a big plus). It is nicely decorated, but I thought they should've had pics of Venice instead of New York City (there were multiple). The bathroom and shower were really nice, but the toilet kept running after you flushed it. The internet was reliable. Overall, very nice.
CA IVO was a nice (website hidden). It is pretty close to the train station (maybe a 10 minute walk) and not too far from any point on the island. There was plenty of room for 6 of us to sleep, and the fact that there was just one bathroom never mattered. The kitchen was small, but we were able to cook a few meals there that helped hold down expenses in an expensive city.
The only problem we had was the refrigerator was not working properly. A maintenance person came by the first night and looked briefly at it, but it didn't help. In the end, it did not affect our stay too much - we left things on the balcony overnight to keep them cool.
Overall a very pleasant stay and I would recommend the apartment.
Thank you Scot for your review! It is Always a pleasure to read that our guests spend some nice days in the beautiful Venice. We are sorry for what happen with the fridge...in fact we have to change it! We already have bought a new one but we have to wait for the delivery...it is not so simple and fast to take it in Venice city center! Thank you for all!
great view from balcony, restaurants near, shopping near. communication between the booking person and meeting person not always with a fast reply which made me worry if the place was ready for us on arrival but when we did arrive to Venice all was ok. only 4 stars because the bathroom was not very clean, the rest of the house was good. came in February and the weather is cold, the place has a heater but took 12 hours or so for the place to feel warm. Perhaps this is why extra blankets were available.
