This apartment is located on the 2nd floor (without lift). It has been completely renovated.
It is composed by a double bedroom, another bedroom with two beds that be can put together, a living room with a sofa bed, a bathroom with shower and a kitchen.
The apartment is provided with Air conditioning, TV, phone and Internet.
The apartment size is about 62 square metres.
The location is perfect! Just literally 1 minute from San Marco! The kitchen is very well equipped that we ended up cooking most if our meals there. The fish market is very close, only 15 minute walk, so I would highly recommend anyone who rent this place to cook your own seafood!
The flat is very spacious and clean. We have a toddler and he could run around in the flat and not feel like being confined.
The beds are not very comfortable though. They seem like air beds, and the middle portion if the bed is slightly bulging out. We don't feel it the first night since we were so tired. But the nights after we're pretty bed, I felt like my back is being pushed upward, and I woke up with a terrible backache the next morning. I ended up sleeping on the sofa bed in the living room. Other people in our party also complains about the beds.
Another problem, which maybe a common problem in Venice, is that there were Mosquitos. It's end of October and there are still lots of Mosquitos. The fact that Venice is a water town and the bottom of this building is a restaurant maybe the cause for the Mosquitos. We solve the problem by not opening the windows in the bedrooms, and we make sure to close the doors of the rooms that we keep the windows open for ventilation such as bathroom and kitchen.
Communication with Enrico is non existent. This may not be a problem since all of my message to him doesn't really require reply, such as notifying him we are arriving shortly, we are checking out and leaving the keys inside etc. maybe that's the reason he didn't reply my message. So make sure you could establish a line of communication with him just in case something needs attention.
All in all this is still a very nice place to stay and I would rent it again if I were in Venice again, just hope the beds will improve.
Thanks for your feedback about the (website hidden).
We are going to check with the owner how to improve the beds and to prevent the mosquitos enter into the flat.
In October there should not be many mosquitos in Venice since it is fresher than in summer. Maybe, you just met some by chance.
I apologize that I could not reply to those short messages on time via the Airbnb chat, but due to a technical issue for several days on the Airbnb account we only got those messages after your departure. For a safer communication it is advisable to use a normal e-mail and/or phone call.
As you remind, all the messages via email were promptly replied.
Once again we appreciate your comment to improve the quality of our services.
Great location and good apartment. Storage for two in the twin bedded room was poor but there were enough hooks to hang things in the hallway and through the good graces of the person in the double room. All in all a very acceptable place to stay. The shower drains slowly but nothing to get upset by. Really helpful host.
Excellent location! Few minutes walk to the Basilica and the Piazza San Marco. 5 minute walk from the San Zaccaria water ferry stop from the airport. Apt has nice view overlooking a small square. Modern bath and kitchen. Spacious, good bed and closet space. Amenities were a plus (wifi, AC, phone).
The apartment is located fantastically, 2 minutes from Piazza San Marco. However apart from that we did face some problems which are the reason for the 2-star review - we did not have any WiFi (this is in the title of the listing), one of the beds did fall apart and the shower requires fixing. It was hard to contact the host during the stay.
The apartment at that time did not have wifi but it had internet with a wire. Now, it has wifi.
Regarding reaching the host that is strange, because they had all the phone numbers plus the e-mail.
We did not know about those minor issues about the bed and the shower. They have been fixed.
Anyway, thanks for the feedback.
Fantastic location, 2 min walking from the apartment to San Marco. Great flat.
