Ce logement est proposé par une société et non un particulier.
La réservation s'est bien passée.
La mise à disposition s'est très bien passée.
Le logement est très bien situé, dans un quartier calme mais à 2 pas de la fondamente dei Ormesini, animé à l'heure de l'apéritif avec des "locaux".
Nous avons été deçu par le logement qui semble de très bon niveau sur les photos mais qui s'est révélé "basique".
Il est situé le long d'un canal avec les fenetres de la chambre qui donne dessus ce qui est très agréable mais comme il est situé au rez de chaussée, il est très humide et les placos neufs sont déjà mangés par l'humidité.
I was not totally happy... the appartement was not very clean and there were some little disturbing points. For example there was no place to keep things in the bathroom (and we were 4 people, so our things were standing on the floor...). The hanging cabinet in the kitchen was only a dummy (no shelves inside). The heating was not working in the first night - but a service man came (very unpolite by the way, was not able to speak any word in english) and then on the 2nd day we had a warm appartement. Our key was broken on the first day (very thin key) and we had to pay €50!!! for one key.
But the area of the appartement was great - very near to Casino and to a lot of Restaurants/bars... and in the night very calm.
What an exceptional experience. The team at Faville Tours were exceptionally prompt with response, efficient and extremely helpful at all times. I was given perfect advance information and support online. On arrival we were greeted by a very helpful and polite agent - spot on time which got our holiday - a special surprise for my partner - off to a brilliant start. The flat was exactly as described, stunning location, with great written information in place and available to assist a great stay. Very impressive all round.
We had a wonderful time at Ca Giorgina!
First good point: Flexibility to chance our check in time was very important to get to the flat. Our flight was late and we couldn't be there at the time... it was fundamental, considering Venice in July!
Second good point: The place has a nice view for a canal and is very comfortable, a lot of windows and nice daylight. Good localization with everything close to the house, we loved! It was like the pictures and have a good wi-fi internet. Perfect to go to the airport from Madona dell'Orto with AliLaguna boat.
Super Lage! Super Kontakt!
Quite and large apartment in Cannaregio, 15-20 minutes walk from P.zza S. Marco.
Pro: Quite neighborhood, Nearby Little supermarket and lots of local Restaurants and pubs, Dishwasher and washing machine, Free-wifii, Another pair of sheets and towel.
Con: The apartment was pretty clean but dusty and quietly unpretentious. It's not possible leaving the luggages inside the house before the check in ( 3 P.M)
Pros: spacious, good local neighbourhood with great bars, unit overlooks a canal, close to both the railway station & a ferry stop so excellent in terms of access, greeted very warmly by Karina.
Cons: no wifi as advertised & our repeated requests for assistance when the provided wifi password came up as incorrect were ignored. After our requests for assistance were met with silence, we decided not to push the issue as one of the house rules indicated that if a request for maintenance/technician was deemed to not be a 'real issue' a fine of 100€ was to be imposed. Not very encouraging when you want help for a malfunctioning amenity that was stipulated as being supplied. We stayed 3 nights & had to rely on free wifi in restaurants or Internet cafes for the duration of our stay.
Also despite the comparatively large cleaning fee, the house rules stipulated that we wash all the dishes, take out the garbage within the Venice collection schedule, and leave the apartment in a tidy condition or else we could get fined a ridiculous 100€. Obviously we are respectful guests & would happily comply but we found the penalty completely unnecessary. We were also only provided with one half used roll of toilet paper.
All in all, we certainly enjoyed our stay in Venice however we felt that the accommodation offering was not as good as it could be. This is probably a result of dealing with an agency who seemed more concerned with penalising you wherever they can rather than providing a service that would adequately reflect the charge.
