I would definitely recommand Elena's flat for the location:
2' walk from St Basilio waterbus stop
15' walk from San Marco Piazza
10' walk from Campo santa Margherita where a good part of the nightlife takes place.
Otherwise, the flat is obviously quiet small but it is normal in Venice. The bed is not awesome but enough for some heavy nights after a whole day walking.
But because the flat is only used for renting use, equipment was limited (only one glass of wine and nothing to open the bottle) and no sponge to at least keep a clean place while you occupy it.
But it remains only details.
Elena and her boyfriend arrived on time at the bus stop to show us the way to the flat. They adviced us some good places. Simple welcome but efficient.
Don't forget the 20€ cash at arrival for cleaning as written in the rules.
I would recommand this flat.
The only advantage of this flat is its location in Venice, in a good area. Unfortunately, bedding is very very bad. The reception is not in the spirit of (website hidden). This activity is a business for Elena, she has many flats for rent. In reality, it's a flat separate in 2 rooms. You don't sleep in her place, but in a basic place.
The room is clean, but we wanted more friendliness, speak with inhabitants of Venice, and know more about how they live. For this price, it's better to go to the hotel.
Elena never slept in this bed, otherwise she changed it for a long time ago.
Hello Nicolas, I'm sorry for the bed and that you have not slept well. I welcomed the vaporetto stop I explained as we walked home all about the area, such as St. Mark's Square and other tourist attractions, I was shown where the supermarket and good restaurant etc. ... you found the apartment thoroughly cleaned with sheets and towels just out of the laundry. near the apartment where it was you there is another apartment that we rent for tourist use, but each apartment is completely independent. Thank you.
ciao Nicolas, mi dispiace per il letto e che tu non abbia dormito bene. Ti ho accolto alla fermata del vaporetto ti ho spiegato mentre andavamo a casa tutto sulla zona, come raggiungere Piazza San Marco e altre attrazioni turistiche, ti ho mostrato dove era il supermercato e buon ristorante ecc... hai trovato l'appartamento completamente pulito con lenzuola ed asciugamani appena usciti dalla lavanderia. vicino all'appartamento dove sei stato tu si trova un'altro appartamento che noi affittiamo ad uso turistico ma ogni appartamento è completamente indipendente. grazie.
Short answer: great place for a simple place to sleep and shower close to supermarket, gelato, and restaurants as well as water taxi.
tips: doors are tricky to unlock. either have the host show you how to do it before she leaves or make sure you have time to figure it out on your own before you go out for the first time.
cons: there was a language barrier and a lot of pointing to communicate with the girl who met us (who is not elena). it was helpful that my husband spoke spanish and it is similar enough to italian for us to understand. perhaps elena could provide instructions printed from the internet in the traveler's spoken language. we also stood for about 10 mins at the water taxi dock waiting for our host who was right next to us the whole time. maybe she could have a sign letting people know who she is waiting for or representing. the pull out bed had someone's hair on the sheets and the bathroom floor was very wet we arrived. you have to provide elena with your arrival information 3 days prior to arrival so this isn't the best place if you are casually wandering around europe with an open schedule.
The studio was well located and we liked the view on the canal, it was fun to see boats pass by!
The place is well equiped and we appreciated the breakfast that was left for us.
The negative points is the sofa bed, that really isn't comfortable... and the thin walls, we could hear our neighbours very well.
We had a short, pleasant stay in this studio. Thankfully there was an old fan in the closet because it is a bit musty. Since its on ground level, it's hard to get a good air flow. Having the canal outside our window was beautiful but also a little unnerving since sometimes gondolas or small boats will cross (not very private). Elena was very nice, check in went smooth. the kitchen had basics and Elena provided a little breakfast. The bed is ok. Overall, it was a nice experience.
However, Elena asks for a 20€ cash "cleaning fee" when you check in. Not one to complain, but I personally don't see why you should have to pay 20€ for what is already included in the price of every other room we've stayed in on air bnb. Providing a clean room and towels is the standard. That should be included in the price. Not an extra fee.
l'appartamento ha una bellissima vista sul Canale, molto caratteristico a Venezia e molto bello, alla mattina passano le gondole sotto la finestra, è molto bello! i 20 euro sono scritti in regole dell'appartamento e lo vedi quando prenoti. Hai trovato l'appartamento perfettamente pulito con asciugamani e lenzuola pulite e la prima colazione. grazie
This apartment is in a wonderful wonderful location. The St.Basilio boat stop is just 3 min walking distance away and Billa supermarket is super close by as well. It was great to see water right out of the apartment window. You can almost touch the water. Stay at Elena's apartment was a pleasant experience.
The only negative point about the apartment was the host. She could not communicate well in English and she barely gave us any details about Venice. We did not see Elena after she gave us the key on the first day and did not even care to ask whether we needed some help in Venice.
But I will not complain much because of the very nice apartment in a great location.
I would totally recommend Elena's house in case you are not too much worried about the above negative point.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
