Vivo in un'altra città ma Venezia è sempre nel mio cuore!

The studio was nice and small. It was a bit difficult to find upon arrival despite instruction (as all the streets in venice are tiny and maze-like) but with the help of our phone's navigation, we made it there. The location is pretty central which is nice but also a draw back because of the constant noise of water taxis and people at night time.
All wonderful. The host was very helpful with the late arrival. Great quiet location, away from loud tourists. Close to Alilaguna vaporetto station. Nice ground floor flat with all that you need for a short stay. View on the canal.
Monica met us at the apartment and explained everything we need. Checkin and checkout were smooth. Bed was comfy. I like that we can see the canal. Great location too! Clean apartment and all essentials were provided. The space is looks better than in the pictures. Great host, great space.
We had a great stay here! Place was large and homey. We arrived late so missed the greeting by our host but checking in and out was easy enough. We loved the little snacks they left us in the fridge - we were hungry by the time we got in ! We used the laundry machine - works well. They even provided us with shower and laundry supplies . Great stay - comfy beds , quiet neighbourhood, great hosts !
A really cosy little apartment in an excellent location. Within walking distance of all the main sites. Pretty special waking up every morning and opening the curtains to see a canal boat sail right past your window! How to feel right at home in the middle of beautiful Venice. Fantastic communication with host. Would highly recommend to others.
Our hosts were great, was in contact well before we arrived and sent very detailed directions to get to the flat and even gave us a call the next day to make sure everything was ok.
The flat was located in a really nice local area, yet still being within walking distances to San Marco Square & the Arsenale/Giardini. Perfect location for visiting the Biennale.
The flat is as described, clean, lovely view of the canal and perfect size for two.
All in all, a great stay and thanks for having us, Paola & Monica!
Cute place, nice location -- the "back porch" is one of the mini canals, so there are great views. She had the needed amenities, and provided a few food items like coffee and some crackers. The Co-Op is a short easy walk away for more groceries.
It was -- unfortunately -- problematic to get internet because Paola does not provide it. If you are relying on internet to make reservations, plans, scope out things to do, then you may want to look elsewhere. It is next to impossible to get good free WiFi in Venice (the signals at cafés who say they have it are often so poor that you can't do anything). Paola provided information on how to pay €3 for 30 minutes, but that's a fortune and only assumes that the signal is good.
I have to agree with some of the earlier criticism, we found the apartment to be surprisingly unclean, the floors were dusty, lots of cobwebs around, and because it's a basement flat on the river it's a little smelly. We also had wet towels left in the washing machine making it a little useless. Given the cost of the apartment, and the added cleaning fee we didn't feel like we got what we paid for. the apartment is spacious and has all the amenities you would need, it's in a nice part of town and is quiet in the evenings. But the condition, especially of the floor, dampened our stay in Venice.
We were disapointed by the apartment, the floor was not clean, other guests garbage bags were still there, washing machine was still working and we had to put the sheets on a drying rack. It was a bit difficult to convince ourselves to pay for the 30 euros cleaning fees but we did. First floor apartment in Venice are very humid, for the two days of our stay we killed bugs crawling on the floor.
We had a very pleasant stay in Venice and in Paola's flat. Although we arrived around midnight, we were welcomed by her friend Grazia who came to pick us up at the closest boat stop. Paola previously sent all necessary indications to go from the airport to the flat. We found everything we needed in the flat and it looks exactly like in the picture. The view on the canal from the flat is very nice! The location of the flat is very convenient (15 min by foot from Saint Marc square). The area is not very touristic (which was very pleasant) while you could find everything you needed in terms of shops, supermarkets, bakeries.
very respectful and friendly guest, highly recommended!
