About this listing

The apartment consists in kitchen, living room, double bedroom, single bedroom and 1 bathroom (shared).
The kitchen is not available for cooking but only for breakfast
Just east of San Marco's commotion, you're more likely to feel calm than crowded in Castello. Impossibly picturesque, the canals of Castello abut lush park spaces and churches dating back to the 1200s. Locals’ laundry drapes over the clotheslines that crisscross this central neighborhood’s floating roads, and the sight of undershirts baking in the sun only adds to its enchantment. Despite the crowds of St. Mark’s Square being minutes away, a general calm fills the air among Castello’s boat ramps, naval bastions, and tiny bookshops.

Venice is awesome and Alex's room is a nice, clean oasis in a charming part of the island. It was so fun walking the alleys and canals away from the crowds, it allowed us to get a glimpse of the more authentic Venice. Alex was a very gracious host, he met us at the ferry dock and had a custom map made that he walked us through which showed a few sights and restaurants. He also described the must- try's of Venetian culture.
Alessandro is a great host, very welcoming yet very discreet. He went to pick us up at the boat station and welcomed us with a personnal map with the best shops and restaurants in the city ! We had a great stay at his place. The flat is big and clean, with air conditionning, and is at the heart of an authentic building. The room is located in a residential area, quiet at night and very Lively during the Day (market, cofee, fruitshop). Close to all the main places in Venise. We définitely recommand !

La habitación que tomamos era realmente hermosa y con baño privado. Muy bien ubicada.
Alessandro kept in good communication and helped us with the waterbus from the train station. He even met us at the Celestia stop and walked us to the apartment. The apartment is on the backside of Venice so it was very quiet! Alessandro also had created a google map of all the local places to eat and shop and that was really helpful. He was always around to help us. The beds were different than in the pictures; was a cot and not a bed. The AC was great and the place was clean and tidy. We were also able to keep our things in the refrigerator. He also provided us with a wand zapper for the mosquitoes. He was a gracious host. The waterbus stop is a 5 minute walk and we were able to get to all the local islands.
Alex was a great host, he picked us up at the boat station and gave some tips (on a google map) where to go and eat. The room was clean as well as the bathroom and the 2 beds joint together was OK too.
The neighbourhood Castello was great, nice and calm. We were visiting the Venice Biennale and all the main venues were really close to the apartment.
All in all we had a great time and we could only recommend Alex's room!!!
We arrived really late in the night due to the 2 hours delay of our flight but the host came to pick us up at the boatstation even though it was so late, we are really thankful to his kindness. He gave us much informations about the transport and recommended a lot good restaurants and icecreamshops. Everything was fantastic!

About the Host, Alessandro
Vivo a Venezia e mi piace viaggiare in particolare ai tropici... ;)
Ho sempre condiviso gli appartamenti con amici e/o conoscenti,
trovo la situazione divertente, "conveniente" ed un modo per socializzare
con persone di altri paesi.
Mi auguro di trovare persone interessanti ed accetto solamente persone educate.
Amo la mia indipendenza e rispetto quella altrui...
