Alberto was great, he met us at the vaporetto stop and walked us to the apartment and told us how to get to many places, where to eat, where to get groceries, etc.
The apartment was in a great location! We loved wandering around the neighborhood and found several good restaurants close by. It was much quieter than the central area, but still only a 15 min walk to San Marco and only a couple minutes from the Arsenale vaporetto stop. Very quiet, quiant, and convenient neighborhood.
The house itself was fine, very simple, had everything we needed for having breakfast at home. It was a little damp and smelly in the bathroom, but overall a good stay.
L appartement est situé a deux pas de l' Arsenal et du vaporetto, sur une petite place calme et agréable. Nous vous le recommandons, d autant plus qu'Alberto sera un hôte très attentif à vos demandes. En plus de l'anglais il parle aussi très bien le français.
We really liked this flat, & would gladly stay here again. The neighborhood is cute & residential, but just a 10-minute walk from the unmissable (incredibly crowded) St. Mark's square. It's amazing how the crowds & stress levels drop away as you cross back into the Castello sestiere!
Our friendly and professional host Alberto met us at the Arsenale vaporetto stop & led us to the apartment. It's just a three-minute walk, but if you're unfamiliar with Venice's winding alleys, you would never find the apartment on your own. He also gave us a quick orientation to the neighborhood & marked our map with highlights.
The comfortable apartment itself is more spacious than it appears from the photos, although the second bedroom is quite small & not very private. (It's suitable for a child; there's also a fold-up bed for a fourth person.) It's wonderfully sunny when you open the shutters. Kitchen is small but fully equipped. Decor is bare-bones, so don't expect a grand movie-style palazzo.
The unit sits on a charming canal-front campo (an open space), where you can get a glimpse of Venetian life. We pulled out a few chairs, some wine & some lovely meat & cheese from the neighborhood market to enjoy the evening scene. (Also, if it's sunny, feel free to hang your hand-washed laundry on the clothesline!)
We weren't there during the Bienniale; however, because this apartment sits just across the canal from the Arsenale, it would be ideally located.
(PS: No wifi, but reasonable cellular data signal from TIM, the local mobile company.)
Apartamento muy bien situado, espacioso, limpio! Y un barrio tranquilo sin muchos turistas pero bien situado, para ir andando la plaza San Marco y otros sitios o el vaporetto a 2 minutos.
Alberto contesto inmediatamente a mis consultas y peticiones. RECOMENDADO
Alberto was a great host and we had a great time at his place in Venice, nice and clean and great location. Highly recommended!
