We were very pleased with our stay. The apartment is located very near to San Marco square. The apartment description and photos are accurate; the wi-fi worked very well. They provided towels and clean sheets. The kitchen is well equipped and the entire apartment was clean. You need to pass in a narrow alley to get to the apartment, but it is well lit so it is not a problem. The apartment is at the third floor, the stairs are narrow but nothing unusual for Italian standards. We don't mind staying there again!
The space was great!! So close to everything, super easy to get to, and the person who took me to the space was kind and helpful. The space had everything I needed. I was quite happy to call it my home for a couple weeks!
This is a great apartment to stay in, especially as it is just off St. Marks Square.
Faville Tours were helpful and always responded quickly to any questions I had for them.
The location is amazing - literally steps away from Piazza San Marco (can even see the gold angel on very top of the Bell Tower from the living room window) However, the apartment is reached via two small alleyways, so it is very calm and quiet. It feels far away from the teeming masses of tourists below. San Marco is great for the sights, but we needed to go to other sestiere for affordable, tasty, and non-touristy meals and morning coffee.
The apartment itself is exactly as advertised. Spacious (by central Venetian standards) and very comfortable and good wifi. It is super value, especially considering what kind of hotel room you would get for that price.
Two things to know:
Stairs - the apartment is on the 3rd floor with no elevator, up a few flights of narrow stairs. It would be difficult to get large bags or a big stroller up and down.
Air conditioning - although the apartment does have one big (but not so powerful) unit covering both the living room and bedroom, you can only have it on 8am-1pm and 4pm-midnight because of noise regulations- so we didn't really use it that much. There is a pretty good cross breeze with the windows open, but summer nights are hot and Venice does have mosquitos. If air conditioning is a dealbreaker for you, then this is probably not the apartment for you.
Faville Tours was a fantastic host - good communication beforehand, flexible on meeting point even when we were late, very responsive during our stay. Grazie mille!
The apartment is clean and a mere couple of steps away from St. Mark's square, location couldn't be better. The access to it however is a bit gloomy as you go through a cornered thin alley, which is nevertheless very close to shops and a busy high street.
Hosts made us feel very welcome and everything was as arranged over email.
