Nice apartment. It is important to schedule the time of checkin in advance, because the options are restricted.
Abbiamo trovato l'appartamento molto funzionale, arredato con gusto e situato in una quartiere piacevole di Venezia.
Per quanto riguarda la casa, sarebbe necessario rinfrescarla perchè in è in uno stato (parlo soprattutto del pianoterra) che non giustifica a nostra parere la tariffa richiesta a notte .
Per quanto riguarda il costo elevato richiesto per le pulizie di una casa cosi piccola (100€ - sul quale al momento della prenotazione non abbiamo detto nulla pensando di trovare una casa pulitissima con letti fatti), mi sembra anche li comunque non giustificato in quanto la casa non era pulita (carta di sapone sporca e bottigliette di shampoo aperte delle persone precedenti in bagno, lavandino sporco, bicchieri non lavati- allego foto), i letti non erano fatti, e rimaneva solo mezzo rotolo di carta igienica (ci è stato detto che l'affito non prevedeva la carte igienica, mi sembra anche li un po' esagerato).
Ultimo punto, non ci è stato rilasciato una ricevuta per il pagamento dei 20€ per il nostro arrivo dopo le ore 20 e per la tassa di soggiorno.
The best part about the apartment was the location! Quiet, 2 min walk through a lovely park to the vaporetto station!
The apartment is only suitable for maximum 4, since the couch is filthy and small! The apartment needs a coat of paint, the bathroom & toilet sinks are too small, electricity socket hanging out of the wall, bathroom door frame broken etc. Maintenance in general is poor! We were told to make sure we washed all dishes before departure, even though a 100€ fee was included for cleaning!!!!
Toilet paper and soap (at least) should be included!!!!!
I stayed in the apartment with three friends and it was the perfect size. Some other reviews had said the place was rundown but we didn't think so at all. The kitchen facilities were basic- eg. no oven, but we managed just fine. Great location for the Biennale and/or those looking for a quieter spot in Venice. A couple of mins walk to a vaporetto stop and about 5 to a supermarket.
Communication with Marco was prompt and helpful, and he was friendly on checkin, which was on time and easy.
Overall, the perfect stay!
Our experience was very disappointing with regards to what was promised on the website: there were definitely not enough dishes and the kitchen is not supplied for cooking even a simple meal, the sofa-bed is not suitable for sleeping as the mattress has mold on it. We planned to have 4 people staying in the apartment, one of them on the sofa-bed, but we had to find another arrangement for that person, since the sofa-bed was not an option. The walls had humidity cracks on them and in the main room there were dead mosquitoes on the walls left from previous guests. The sink in the toilet was clogged and not all light bulbs were functioning. Our group had rented another apartment in Venice at the time and since we could compare, this one was not nearly as nice as the other apartment we rented out.
We are sorry for the inconveniences you found in the apartment. Certainly now that we know the problems we can make a double check and solve the problems for the next guests. We will check first of all the mattress of the sofa bed and all the equipment of the kitchen as it has to be suitable for 5 people. Thank you anyway for your review.
The apartment was well equipped (dishwasher, iron, washing machine, hair dryer). The location is good - close from a garden and far from the rush of the city center. We were received by Marco in charge of the keys. Marco was a great help to arrange transport in the city and gave us some usefull advices. Marco picked us up at another bus stop to facilitate our arrival. Thank you to him. His flexibility and availability by mail were very good and we received answers in a very short term with very usefull information.
