The Space

Saint Mark apartment

This apartment is located in the exclusive neighbourhood of San Marco, an area located in the very heart of the old town in which the most important noble families in Venice live.
Piazza San Marco is probably the best known spot in town, and it is so important amongst locals that it is said that everyone who lives in Venice passes beyond San Marco at least once a day. The wonderful square in front of the cathedral, full of children who feed the birds, souvenir sellers and cafés with live music (some of which are probably the most expensive coffee bars in Italy!), is definitely a must for those who visit marco Polo's town. As you walk around it, don't forget to have a look at the Palazzo Ducale (Duke's Palace) and its Ponte dei Sospiri (Bridge of Sighs), which joins the courtroom with the ancient jail. For those who are not scared of heights, we recommend climbing the tower, which overlooks the entire town and gives you the most spectacular sights in Venice. If you prefer not to get so high, you could go for a ride on a Gondola around the Channels!
This apartment is very close to the Vaporetto stop, and in a high area. Therefore, you need not fear the yearly floods (the so-called acqua alta) in Venice, for they never reach the apartment area! Connections to the minor islands around Venice (including Burano, Murano and Lido di Venezia) are also available.

Interaction with Guests

This apartment has been recently renovated and provided with a wooden beam ceiling. It is located on the second floor (without lift).
The apartment includes one bedroom with a Queen size bed and one bedroom with two singles beds, one bathroom with a shower, a fully equipped kitchenette and a comfortable living room area that includes a fireplace.
This apartment is provided , a microwave oven, independent heating, AIR CONDITIONING, a TV set (TV only in Italian), a fireplace and stereo player.
The size of the apartment is roughly 60 square metres.

  • El departamento esta en excelentes condiciones y posee todo lo necesario. Le faltaria conexion de internet para ser perfecto. Nosotros estuvimos 3 noches de invierno en familia, somos 5 personas, todos adultos. La ubicacion es lo mejor. Tres minutos a la Plaza San Marcos y trea minutos al Rialto. Sin duda volveria y lo recomiendo. Es una bonito departamento !

    Dear Jose,
    I'm glad that your stay at the apartment was good.
    About the Internet connection we can provide it there if the customer asks for it in advance. Maybe it will for the next time!
    I'm sorry that you did not know!

    Sobre el Internet nos possimao tener que hacer allí si el cliente lo solicita con antelación. Tal vez lo hará 'para la próxima vez!
    Lamento que usted no lo sabía!

  • A great apartment! The location was excellent - less than 5 minutes to the Rialto bridge one way, and St Mark's Square in the other (plus a supermarket just a few minutes away). The apartment was clean and kitchen fully equipped. (It would have been great to have had WIFI available but the listing made clear in advance that it wasn't) Overall would highly recommend Monica's apartment.

  • I recently stayed in this apartment with 3 other people. The apartment is very nice and more spacious than it appears in pictures. It is in a good location; only minutes to Saint Mark's Basilica and Rialto Bridge. Monica's communication was excellent leading up to our stay and she made sure we knew everything we needed upon check in. One towel per person was provided but only one roll of toilet paper was in the bathroom so you should bring your own as it is not easy to find a store nearby that sells it.

    Hi Michael,I'm glad to know your stay at the apartment was good.
    About the toilet paper there was only one becasue the apartment is self catering as you can read ,so the guests provide theyself to purchase the paper and every things they need during the stay at the apartment.
    The supermarket "Punto" is just 2 minutes walking as I told you during the check in .

  • The Apartment between Rialto and Piazza San Marco is very clean and in a perfect central location. We enjoyed it very much. There is enough space for 4-5 people or a family. Monica is very professional and a kind person. unfortunatly there is no wifi but you´ll find one in a cafe not far away.

  • Apartment itself is very good, excellent location, clean, nice kitchen and kitchenware. But do not expect a lot of help from the host. She is very strict on check in and out time. She appeared a little late, was in a hurry, apartment was very dark and we ask to replace at least one bulb, she refused and in general, was not too friendly and didn't offer any information.

    Dear Mikhail,
    the appointment for your check in was fix at 15.00 and at 15.00 o'clock we arrived. Maybe you arrived at the apartment in advance and then you wait a few minutes .
    So you absolutely wtite a big lie.
    However, even in the past mail I wrote that the check in is possible from 15.00 unless otherwise agreed , if possible .
    We've given you all the required information regarding your stay in Venice , where to go and what to see . So you write an other lie.
    I'm sorry you had this impression of me, you was probably altered because most wanted light of what is there but this was a problem only for you because the light in the apartment there is definitely more than enough and nobody ever complain about this .
    The bulb was at full power and to get even more light I would have to make a new plant electrician , which certainly does not in half an hour and that is not absolutely necessary in this apartment.

  • We had an excellent 3 nights in the Saint Mark apartment. The location could not be more perfect for visiting sites in Venice! The apartment was clean and everything was in order. Alessia was so helpful in checking us in, and the communication was great with Monica. We had 4 people and slept comfortably in the apartment. Overall a great experience, and I can highly recommend the apartment.

    We are very happy to hear that you completly enjoyed your stay in our holiday home.

  • Monica is very professional and responsive. Instructions are accurate. The apartment is well situated, quiet enough and near all attractions. A/C worked well however a bit small to reach all rooms.appropriately in a day with 38 Celsius! There are 5 beds, 4 real, sturdy beds; one foldable day bed, a bit soft but will do for a kid. There is a bit of humidity but I guess that is part of Venice. Supermarket and nice coffee is nearby. If you want less touristy crow, head north of the apt; for more crow, head south. Worth the visit.

  • Nous avons apprécié notre séjour à Venise, L'appartement est idéalement placé entre la place St Marc et le Rialto. Il est propre et bien équipé, assez grand pour accueillir une famille de 5 personnes. Les explications pour s'y rendre sont claires et Monica est ponctuelle et accueillante.
    C'est une adresse que nous recommanderons à nos amis.

  • La experiencia de hospedarnos en el apartamento de Mónica fue muy grata. La localización no puede ser mejor: a 4 minutos de la Plaza San Marcos, a 5 de un gran supermercado y en un sitio seguro y sin ruidos. Mónica estuvo puntual en el lugar de encuentro y fue muy amable.
