From August 24th 2011 also Venice will enforce a new tourist tax for visitors:
The City of Venice will enforce a new tourist tax for visitors staying overnight, starting from August 24th (with no retrospective effect). The decision was taken by the City Council last June 23rd, when the new tax regulations were approved.
Tariffs will vary according to season (there will be two fares, one for low and on for high season), location (three areas have been identified: Venice old town, the islands and the mainland) and to the type of accommodation (hotels, bb, campsites, holiday village, etc). In fact, there is a series of tax reductions foreseen for accommodation facilities located on the islands in the Lagoon (30%) or on the mainland (40%) and during low season (up to 50%). Children aged between 10 and 16 will pay half the tax fare, whereas those under 10 will not be charged at all.
The tax goes to a maximum of 2,50€ to a minimum of 0,90€ per person for day until 5 day of stay.
J'ai passé 2 jours dans cet appartement typiquement vénitien. Il est propre et bien organisé : nous étions 4 : 1 adulte et 3 enfants.
L'équipement de la cuisine est sommaire : peu de couverts, pas de machine à café, pas de grande casserole. Du coup, vous ne vous lancez pas dans la grande cuisine.
Ce n'est pas un appartement d'un particulier. C'est une société qui loue des appartements. Du coup, c'est impersonnel : l'accueil et l'appartement.
Das Apartment von Valentina befindet sich in einem sehr schönen, verwinkelten Quartier und einem Altbau mit Charme.
Serena, die uns in Empfang nahm, war sehr nett und hilfsbereit.
Allerdings hat die Unterkunft gravierende Mängel, die für eine positive Beurteilung unbedingt behoben werden müßten:
so ist sie für sechs Leute angegeben, es gibt aber z.B. nur vier Messer. Das gesamte Besteck ist eine Katastrophe, Griff und Löffel fallen beim Umrühren auseinander etc. ... Die Wände bröseln, deshalb gibt es ständig Kalk auf dem Boden. Die Birnen im Bad waren kaputt. Dank anderer Bewertungen hatten wir schon einige Dinge vorsorglich mitgenommen... Ein bißchen mehr Liebe fürs Detail würde hier sehr gut tun, besonders bei der absolut notwendigen Aufstockung der Küchenutensilien!!!!!
Apartments are situated in a good location. Directly on a small canal in Venice.
The apartment consists of two rooms and a kitchen. One of the rooms are very small with a double bed of 140 cm. Sleep on it extremely inconvenient. Also bed bases were broken.
The floors were dirty. Although cleaning costs 80 euros (!)
Outlets for the hair dryer did not work and so on and so forth.
I recommend to look for another place to live.
We had a wonderful time in Venice, I highly recommend a visit... But not to this apartment. This place is much worse than it appears in the photos and I'm quite certain that it is infested with bugs as my entire family had bites from the apartment. The apartment was dark and dingy. Marcos, who worked for the agency, was not very friendly and could have been more helpful. We will absolutely not ever stay there again. The only good thing about this apartment is that it is not a far walk to Arsenal.
The location was good, and the flat was not too bad, however, the beds, particularly the sofa bed were not comfortable. Cleaning fee was far too high for such a small flat, especially as we were asked to put the rubbish out before leaving, and turn on the dishwasher. There were no basics such as soap or washing up liquid available in the flat. We stayed in a self- catering apartment in Milan before going to Venice and the landlord left us all basics for a short stay, including soap, toilet paper, washing powder, milk, coffee, sugar, salt, pasta and even a bottle of wine! In contrast at the Canal View Apartment, we didn't even get enough toilet rolls or soap! If we were a few minutes late on the day of our arrival we couldn't even buy soap to wash our hands after using the toilet! It is really annoying if you have to spend your first afternoon of a 3-day stay trying to find a supermarket and buy washing up liquid, washing powder, soap, etc. which usually come in packs enough for at least 2 to 3 weeks! It would not cost that much for the landlord to provide the badics but makes a huge difference to the guests!
And a note about Valentina.... I'm not quite sure if there is a real person called Valentina. It looks like a big and impersonal business to me. we only dealt with Marko, who receives guests for a number of accommodations and expect the guests to adjust their travel time according to his availability! I was worried the day before that we may not be able to get into the flat, as we did not know which train we would be able to take, but luckily, we were able to get there on time for Marko to meet up with us....
Despite a last minute change of apartment, everything went very smoothly upon arrival in Venice. The apaprtment was a tad bit shabbier in real life than on the photos, but all in all the standard was pretty good and we really liked the location. We arrived too late to catch the grocery store before it closed, so we only had a quarter of a roll of toilet paper to share between the four of us until the next day. Also, felt like a bit of a waste to have to buy a whole pack of dishwasher-tablets when we only used two tablets during our stay, and we had to buy dishwashing liquid. Would have been perfect if the apartment came equipped with the basics like one roll of toilet paper, some dishwashing liquid and tablets.
