Two are the words to describe Leon D'oro: elegance and luxury.
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.

Excellent experience. Neighborhood is fantastic, if a little touristy (although it is Venice, after all) - grocery store and pharmacy are extremely convenient, easy access to vaporetti and quick walks to lots of tourist sites. Apartment is beautiful, clean and air-conditioned - we were able to sleep 6 in tight but reasonable conditions. Stefano met (email hidden)' d'Oro stop, and was extremely helpful in getting us oriented to the apartment and the neighborhood.
Note to larger guests, though - this apartment may not be a good fit, literally! There are a number of very narrow walkways in the apartment, especially if the sofa bed is being used, some as small as 50 cm.
We had a great stay at the apartment! Everything was close by which was very convenient. Only bad thing was there was no wifi
AVOID! Terribly unprofessional and profiteers of tourists. BEDBUGS!! YES... BEDBUGS. Plus, Apartment way smaller and it appears. Shower not working well and SURPRISE FEES for cleaning. Every familiar Airbnb user will be disappointed and feel ripped off. I absolutely do not recommend this place.
We had a very pleasant stay in this lovely Venice apartment. Overall it was pretty quiet, clean and in a convenient location. The bathroom is very small- you have to turn sideways to get between the washing machine and sink, however, it was very clean, and we had plenty of hot water.
Cosy small apt well located in Venice. Nice attempt to make it design and atmosphere , but result is so snd so. Very small , it is full of furniture exceeding needs (big wardrobe and poster bed leave very little space in bedroom, enormous sofa in living difficult to transform in bed - no space to lift and no space left). The washing machine create ptoblems in entering the bathroom). In general 6/10 , and a bit overpriced . Assistance good.
