The apartment was wonderful! We got picked up at the water station right on time. It's the perfect location to center Vience where all the tourist locations are. Apartment is decorated very nicely and has everything provided.
There were positive and less positive aspects of this experience: Positive things were the communication from the agency which was extremely organised, prompt and responsive. Also the location is great; quiet and less touristy than other locales with a really pretty outlook. Not so positive: the apartment is really tiny - probably fine if it's just two or three traveling but very hard if there's 5. It's impossible to put suitcases anywhere other than a thoroughfare so we were tripping over each other. Also the pull out bed in the lounge is very uncomfortable.
Thank you Rachel for the review, for explaining the positive and the negatives aspects that will for sure help us to improve our standards. We can take into consideration to change the sofa bed if uncomfortable. We would like to let you know that the apartment has also an utility room downstairs where guests can leave the suitcases they do not need during the stay. We hope you enjoyed your time and you come back in the future.
My colleague and I had a wonderful stay in the apartment. We stayed during June which was a bit hot/humid and the AC is only in the main room (not bedrooms), but that was the only minor thing. It was a very clean space and exactly as described. Our hosts met us at the vaporetto stop and it was easy to come and go. Overall this was a great choice for our work trip, the neighborhood was perfect and the space was well priced. I would certainly stay there again.
We had a wonderful stay in the apartment in Venice. It was our first experience using airbnb so there was a little bit of a learning curve. The apartment was cute and fulfilled our needs. It was smaller than anticipated but was a nice place to lay our heads at the end of the day. The sofa bed did not open and one member of our group slept on the floor as a result. We did not find out about it until later the next day due to schedules among our party but reported it as soon as we found out. I did not anticipate the long boat ride to the apartment and would have appreciated more instruction in that regard but we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the apartment.
Dear Janine, thank you for staying in this apartment. It was a big pleasure to host you and we hope to accommodate you again in the future.
We are happy to read you spent some nice days in Venice and in our apartment. With reference to the sofa bed issue, we are sorry for what happened. We have a maintenance team working to assist our guests and thanks to prompt communication, we solved the problem repairing the small hook.
Thank you again and see you soon!
Все было прекрасно! Район замечательный, очень близко к центру, рядом улица с супермаркетом и ресторанами, можно прогуляться и до парка в другую сторону, отдохнуть от суеты и бесчисленного количества туристов.
Ремонт и мебель в отличном состоянии, все соответствует фотографиям и ожиданиям.
A nice place, very close to the Giardini, we hat a comfortable stay.
The apartment was equiped with everithing you need during a few days stay, towels included.
Our apartment at the Vivaldi Canal was just what we had hoped. It was tucked away off the main business area, quiet and comfortable. Our host waited patiently for us as the boat strike put us a bit behind. It was a great location and a great stay!
