Very helpful . Picked us right up off the water taxi stop. Close to the square only about a 15 minute walk
We had a great two-night stay in Venice. Apartment was well located away from the crowds of San Marco, but still close enough to walk or take the vaporetto to the sights.
As other reviewers noted, the air conditioning is only in the living room. It was in the low 90s F (32 C) during our stay and this made the two bedrooms very hot. We ended up sleeping in the living room, which was fine, but reduced our usable space considerably. Something to consider if you are staying during the hottest days of summer.
Overall, we had a good stay. Loved the local feel and being away from the crowds.
Graet place to stay. Loved the location!
Clean and comfortable. Paula (the apartment guide) was a great help!
We would recomend this place.
The apartment is cozy and clean. And its location is very convenient, only 10 minute walking distance to the water bus stop. Unfortunately, the apartment is a little small for us 5 people with large luggage cases, but it is able to fit 4 people perfectly. There is only one air conditioner in the apartment, but luckily, it's not hot when we stayed in Venice, so one AC is enough.
On the positive side: very great location
On the negative side:
* Only one air-conditioning for the entire apartment (in the living room), meaning that the people in the 2 rooms were not able to sleep because of the very high temperature
* Also, the sofa bed is kind of broken and very uncomfortable. Anytime you try to move in the sofabed during the night, you can feel the springs and the sofabed moves. Extremely bad quality
In summary, there were 6 of us. In the living room, aircon but bad bed quality, we didn't sleep. In the 2 other rooms, temperature was so high that my friends didn't manage to sleep either.
I wouldn't recommend this place during a hot summer.
thanks for your message. We're sorry about the inconvenience, but during your stay we did not have any notification from you referring to the sofa bed and the A/C. We could have brought you some fans to partly solve the problem of the exceptionally hot there was in Venice during your stay. We're dealing with the order of a new sofa bed and as soon as possible we'll bring some fans in the apartment. Regards, Sabrina
The greeter was very friendly. He gave us two maps and recommended restaurants, where to go and others. It is located in a great location. The street behind this place has restaurants, supermarket and others. The place is small and there is only one air conditioning in the living room. Therefore, the room by the main door was a little stuffy.
The apartment was very clean. The neighborhood is very nice, but about a 20 minute walk to San Marco. On the downside, the wifi didn't work for half of our trip making it difficult for us to communicate. They got it fixed eventually, but it was an inconvenience. Additionally, the apartment is very hot in summer and there are no fans for the bedrooms. The AC is a window unit and it is only in the living room. The bedrooms are very warm. The greeter who met us at the bus stop was very nice, but it was difficult for us to find her because she wasn't carrying a sign. Without Internet, meeting up with her is challenging. Faville also closes certain hours of the day, so there are certain times when they will not pick up the phone to help you. This also caused problems. Overall, it was not my best air bnb experience.
Dear Joanna, thank you for leaving your review.
We are sorry you had some problems with Internet connection during your stay and, as you know, this problem was not depended on us. Unfortunately there was a line problem caused by the phone company and, even if we stayed days on the phone with the operator, they solved it only after a few days.
Concerning the meeting for the check-in, we give a precise meeting point to our guests otherwise it is difficult the meeting if they go to a restaurant or café. But at the end everything was solved so we hope you appreciated our effort to make your stay a good experience.
