Two are the words to describe Leon D'oro: elegance and luxury.
Entering the apartment, you will be embraced by a pleasant feeling of warmth, this due to the choice of materials, wooden flooring, walls in gold finish, bronze-coloured furniture, everything recalling the Venetian royalty but with a modern twist. The apartment is much appreciated for the bright spaces, thanks to the many windows that overlook the typical Venetian roofs.
Completely provided with exposed beams and decorated with luxurious furniture, it consists of an elegant living room with a queen size sofa-bed, a modern kitchen completely equipped with dishwasher, two bedrooms, one of which furnished with a romantic canopy bed and a bathroom with a refined golden mosaic.
The available services are: heating, traditional oven, air conditioning, microwave, hairdryer, satellite TV, dishwasher and baby cot (to be requested).
Located in a central and quiet area of Venice in the Cannaregio district (so called from the Canal Regio which connects the Canal Grande to the Laguna), the heart of the authentic Venice, Leon D'oro is only a short walk from Rialto Bridge and Cà d'Oro and a few blocks away from San Marco. From the apartment it takes you only 5 minutes to reach Rialto Bridge, the lively commercial heart of Venice, with the typical jewellery and souvenir shops located under the arcade, and at close distance from the colorful fruits and vegetables and fish markets. Piazza San Marco is just 10 minute away of pleasant walk through the alleys and squares, all lined with shops and boutiques for both the elegant and traditional shopping. Forever considered the heart of faith and long time ago also the center of the power of Serenissima (the old Republic of Venice) Piazza San Marco is always a pleasure to visit. The apartment is also very close to some masterpieces of Art and History of the city, less visited and known, nevertheless still fascinating and evocative, worth to be seen during your stay in Venice: the Casino of Venice at Cà Vendramin Calergi, the most beautiful 16th century's Venetian civil architecture, also home of the Wagner Museum (the famous German composer who lived there and died in 1883), and the church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli, a delightful treasure of Renaissance polychrome marbles. Leon D'oro is located 300 meters away from the jetties Cà d'Oro and Fondamenta Nuove. With the ferries that leave from the Cà d'Oro pier, along the Grand Canal, you reach the Gallerie dell'Accademia (where there are kept the paintings of Giorgione, the master of the 16th century's Veneto, to whom the hotel is dedicated), the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and the Giardini della Biennale. With the ferries that leave from Fondamenta Nuove you reach the beautiful islands of the Lagoon, Murano, Burano and Torcello.
Gute, sehr zentral gelegene Unterkunft für maximal 4 Personen.
Overall not a very good experience as price/value are not in balance
- Adress of the apartment is not correct on the map or in itinary.
- As one of my friends (without local cellphone) picked up the key we could not find the place. Neither Faville or our contact person picked up or bothered to call back.
- Very small apartment which appear way bigger on pictures. You cannot even move bedroom and shower.
- No toilet paper was supplied.
- Excessive cleaning fee of 115 euro
- Shower water does not run away in the sink
- Airconditioning only in living room which makes sleeping at night very difficult.
- Although a safety has been booked on my credit card of 250 euro they insisted on an extra garantee of 250 at key pick up and simply refused to give the key without paying.
- check out time at 11.00 is ridiculously early
In general not a luxury apartment for the value advertised. This type of commercial offers should be banned from airbnb.
Comodo. Piccolo. Pulito. Arredato con gusto. Accoglienza buona. Velocissime nella risposta di richiesto di affitto. Trovato difficoltà a raggiungerle verso la fine del soggiorno. Aria condizionata ma fornisce il soggiorno solo e visto che le finestre sono senza zanzariera quindi con il caldo munitevi di repellente e pazienza ;)
The apartment was gorgeous and a comfortable size for the 6 of us.
Nice apartment, great location, very very helpful service by the agent. Note however that the apartment is run by an agency rather than a private owner, so be sure to be aware of rules/restrictions and potential charges upfront, as could be large if not careful (e.g., 100euro if you don't bring the rubbish out). Also, you will not be able to store luggage there for any time beyond the 11am checkout, so ensure you plan for this in advance
The LEON D'ORO GOLD APARTMENT has a great location!
The property management representative met us on-time, in the agreed-upon meeting place. She was also flexible when our arrival time unexpectedly changed, which was appreciated.
The apartment was clean and the beds comfortable. Just don't pull the cord in the shower! It does nothing to improve drainage and sets off the doorbell. It took us awhile to figure that out when our friend took a late-night shower!
Note: There are lots of rules for the apartment (taking out trash, when you can use the air conditioner) and an unexpected (to us, at least) 95 Euro cash cleaning fee in addition to the apartment cost.
Overall, we enjoyed our experience with Bianco Holidays and the apartment.
