Really nice and sweet apartment in Murano. It was the perfect place to explore Venice from here! The Check-In was welcoming and informative. Really recommended!!!
L'appartement est très agréable, tout à fait fidèle à la description. Nous en avions réservé un autre dans un pemier temps, qui n'était finalement plus disponible. Mais elle nous a proposé celui-ci et nous ne le regrettons pas. On l'a trouvé idéal pour passer quelques jours en retrait des quartiers très touristiques mais dans l'ambiance vénitienne, avec une vue imprenable sur le canal ! On peut faire les courses à proximité et se rendre en 3mn à la station de vaporetto. Paola est une hôte attentive et accueillante. Nous te remercions pour tout Paola !
Very nice apartment ideally located in Murano, close to all commoditie. We had a wonderful stay, the air conditioning is definitely a plus. I strongly recommend it!
Me and my boyfriend spent few really beautiful days in this apartment. The host was very kind and helpful. We loved the locality where apartment is situated. Beautiful view on canal and church on pretty calm street. Apartment itself is very nice and clean. Venice is one of the most beautiful places and it is worth to visit. We will definitely come back sometime.
The information on forhand was really good, and we got to the appartment without any trouble. The appartment is really nice, and perfect situated if you want to avoid the huge turist crowds. Only 5-10 min. in a Vaparetto to get to Venice, and 30 min to the airport. Murano is a wonderfull island, and the view from the appartment was fantastic. Paola had made a great guide of Venice with we found very helpfull. Would highly recomend the appartment!
We never met the host, some lady took us to the apartment . We were not so happy to be charged an extra 30 Euros to take us to the apartment plus city taxes. The apartment was about 200 m from the nearest waterbus stop and we could have found the place ourselves. Actually very easy to find. We were told by the lady not to leave any dirty dishes, "she really does not prefer that". As a tourist we felt taken for a "ride". When speaking to Paola the next day I was told that I would receive a receipt of the 30 Euro + that we paid in cash, but to this day I have not received anything.
No iron and iron board, washing machine, microwave or dishwasher. No duvet cover, only sheets.
Location is central in Murano and really liked the island and the central location of the apartment.
I have been lucky enough to travel in Italy and Greece this summer with airbnb, and of all the places I've stayed I think Paola's flat comes the closest to photos matching reality. The room itself is really lovely, and the view over the canal is great! Also, let us take a moment to reflect upon the great blessing that is air conditioning. Venice was very, very hot when we were there and I made the mistake of leaving the windows open in the evening, which let in the mosquitoes (they do not seem to bite everyone equally, and I am one of those people who could be hired out at parties to ensure nobody gets any bites because they would all be busy biting me). If you are like me, partake of the magical air conditioner and close the windows; you will be much happier for it.
I didn't get to meet Paola, but we were met at the vaporetto stop and given lots of very helpful instructions and advice, which was very much appreciated.
