Elegant and comfortable RESIDENCE on the first floor of an historical building, COLLEONI QUIET AND MODERN RESIDENCE can host comfortably 10 persons and therefore it is ideal for a family or a group of friends. It is furnished with care for the details, with oak parquet over the whole surface, the main colour is white, that gives that refined and modern tone that makes it special in the heart of beautiful Venice. The residence is composed of 2 luminous and roomy living room with 2 completely accessorised kitchen, elegant glass table and 2 comfortable double davenport. The 3 bedrooms, very roomy, are composed of 3 double white beds with roomy wardrobes. The restroom is coated in elegant black tiles. Special feature of the 2 restroom: the presence of a particular mosaic on the shower wall.
The area, even though it is central and therefore close to all the important sites of the city, is not the usual destination of the mass tourism: it still maintains the fascination and the smells of the ancient times, and it can be considered the most exclusive neighbourhood in Venice.
Entering the quiet streets that surround the building, you can discover the typical venetian squares with their unique smell, where there are small restaurants managed by venetian families that offer exclusive menus, full of traditions.The residence is close to the SS Giovanni and Paolo Square, one of the most evocative places in Venice and the ideal starting point to visit Venice, the unique reality in the world where there is no continuity among the places to visit, being the whole city a continuous gathering of art treasures, of breath taking views, of historical and traditional wonders. Walking a few minutes through the streets of the real Venice you can reach St. Mark's Square or the Rialto Bridge, passing by the square Santa Maria Formosa. On the other side, 10 minutes through the popular Sestiere di Castello and you will reach the antique Arsenal of Venice, nowadays one of the most prestigious sites of the Venice Bienalle of arts and architecture. Not far there also are the stops of the public means of transport (the ferries) that create a constant and fast connection with the train station of Venice Santa Lucia and the Marco Polo airport (VCE) or with the isles of the Laguna like Murano with the famous glassworks, Burano and its multicolour houses and the traditional lace, Torcello, where you can admire the basilicas in venetian-Byzantine style.

We were two families traveling together and chose this residence the "Colleoni Modern Residence with Wi Fi " as it advertised that it would be a perfect place for our large group. We particularly wanted to stay together as this was something we had promised our children. However ten days before we arrived (while travelling through Europe) we were informed that there could be the possibility that we would be relocated into two separate apartments in the same zone as there might be some building works happening.The links to the apartments we were offered showed one very small place San Giacomo and a medium sized place St Mark's suite, not in the same zone and far apart.We tried to decline this offer but were not given any option. Other than that we may get a discount for the inconvenience.There has been no discount. After numerous emails and phone calls by us, finally a response came late in the evening on the day we were meant to arrive, which can be stressful not knowing were you are staying especially when you are a group of 9 with small children. After much confusion about meeting places, we were left stranded on a deserted Venice vaporatto stop till midnight with young children before we were met by our guide. The accommodation our family stayed in called the San Giacomo was tiny, hardly enough room for your luggage.The wi-fi was non existent which made communicating with Faville or our friends impossible. The shower was also small barely enough room to turn around. It was smelly and was not as new looking as in the pictures. A lot to take in at midnight. We were at least a ten minutes walk to the other family we were travelling with and wasted alot of time trying to meet each other each day. Of all the Air bnb places we stayed in, in Europe this was the worst experience we had. Because you never see the owner there is no one to complain to.You are left in the lurch in a foreign country. I am yet to receive any apology or compensation from Faville Tours they don't seem concerned that they disrupted our holiday in Venice. They get their money upfront and then you're at their mercy. I don't recommend staying in any of their properties you never know what you may end up staying in!
PS I submitted this review to them 2 weeks before I made it public to give them the opportunity to redeem themselves but they have not replied. No apology or discount be aware!
Sehr sauberes, modernes, schönes Appartement! Gut erreichbar, nette Bars und Osterien in der Nähe, alle Top Sehenswürdigkeiten per Fuß erreichbar. Wir hatten beide Appartements für 10 Frauen gemietet, das würde ich nicht unbedingt weiter empfehlen - die beiden Schlafcouches waren nicht sehr bequem; sie waren für 2 Nächte ok, aber nicht wirklich komfortabel. Abgesehen davon ist das Appartment uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen und sieht wirklich so aus wie auf den Fotos!
Great location very handy to all facilities and tourist locations.
Rooms were clean, tidy and functional. One double room was very cosy, but enjoyable. Great coffee shops and other facilities needed by tourists was available all downstairs. A very enjoyable experience was had by all.
