Nice, spacious and light appartment in wonderfull Cannaregio neighbourhood, being central, quiet and authentic, near vaporetto lines and some good restaurants nearby. Would book it again.
Nicola was very helpful in guiding us into Venice during a bus strike. His apartment is homely more than elegant, but is perfectly situated near the Via Garibaldi, close enough to walk to all the sites but mercifully away from the tourist hordes. The two areas of the Venice Biennale are on either side of the apartment. The cafes and restaurants in the area are reasonable, not terrific, but there are great fresh fruit, veges and fish just minutes away. Nicola's apartment represents good value for travellers more concerned about location rather than luxury. It suited us fine! Thanks, Nicola.
The appartment is perfectly located for a Biennale stay, 5 minutes to Giardini and Arsenale and nevertheless in a quiete and original neighborhood. It's small, but really cosy, equipped with everything you need and perfectly clean. Their was a little confusing by getting there, but a friend of Nicola gave us a warm welcome and equipped us with towels, bedlinen and the key. We enjoyed our stay very, very much and recommend the accomodation.
Nicola was a great host. He stayed up quite late to let us in and guide us to the flat, as our flight was very delayed. The flat is beautiful!! Very spacious with a huge, comfortable bed and gorgeous dark wood furniture. Also, perfectly located as the area is easily accessible but not too touristy. Thank you!
Out of the way apt was a great experience. Close to Jewish ghetto and Misicordia nightlife, everything was great, Nicole me us at the 5.2 water ferry. Master Bed very comfortable, bedroom is so spacious. Old grandma below living room so no late night partying! A quiet building with yr round residents. Apt over looks alley which is open space, very nice. Cooked 1 night and olive oil and other condiments were available. We loved the place, wifi was excellent. You feel like your in Venice in this wonderful apt. Small "french" size pull out couch was perform for 2 adult children, might be tough for heavier people. Hard to find a place in Venice that is a better value!!
Nicola met us when we arrived and he was very helpful during our stay. The area is amazing, we ve been walking around and enjoying the city. There are a lot restaurants and cafes near the flat, the supermarket is very close. The apartment is very beautiful.
I definitely recommend this place.
Nicola was nice enough to offer us to come directly from the airport, even though we arrived in the morning, which was really appreciated !
The flat is exactly like one might expect from the pictures: a really cosy studio with everything you might need. It's located in a very nice neighborhood and is very quiet. We chose this studio because we were visiting the Biennale, but enjoyed the neighborhood so much that if we come back to Venise, we'll pick the same flat !
Last thing, as many said, we knew there was no internet and thought we would be alright with it, but when travelling you actually need to check out a lot of information, so it would be THE perfect flat if it had it :-)
Thanks . We have a good time in Nicolas apartments.
Two friends and I stayed at this apartment early Oct 2014. The location is great. It's right near Giardini, by a main strip filled with local cafes and restaurants. It's perfect if you plan to be in Venice for the Biennale. The area is also good as it is away from the main tourist areas.
The apartment itself is a little small for three people, but it did the job for us. The beds were comfy. The place could do with wifi though.
We had some communication problems with Nicola at the beginning, but it got resolved eventually and we had a good weekend overall.
Nicola is a wonderful host, and the Tintoretto apartment couldn't be a better place to visit Venice. Nicola was great in giving us very clear directions on which shuttle to take from the airport, and even met us at the shuttle stop. He explained everything in the apartment extremely well, and gave us a number of very helpful tips for the neighborhood restaurants and wine and snack bars, which really gave our trip to Venice a local flavor.
The apartment itself is wonderfully decorated, and the pictures honestly do not do it justice. It's quaint, but rather spacious, and very warm inside. The kitchen has the same warm feeling, but has recently been remodeled, and has some very modern touches that make it very functional. You could easily cook your own meals here.
But with all of the wonderful restaurants within walking distance - far removed from the usual tourist trap areas and teeming with locals - who would want to cook at home? Some must tries are Osteria L'Orto dei Mori (just steps away) for some exquisite seafood, and Vini Veto (or Vino Veto), a great local Venetian Tapas and wine bar just past the intersection of Fondamenta Misericordia and Calle Zancani.
Back to the apartment, the bed was very comfortable and there is a washer machine if you need to do laundry. The bathroom was well appointed and functional, if a bit small, but we found we had to constantly adjust the water temperature in the shower as it would sometimes get too hot. I guess that's a good problem to have. Much better than the opposite.
The apartment is in a very quiet area, which is great, but you'll need to be quiet as well, and respectful of the neighbors. If you're looking for a party pad, this isn't your place. But if you're looking for a wonderful place to see the real Venice in comfort, this is a must-see.
We would highly recommend it and would love to return some day.
Nicola was a great guest.
He was friendly and charming. He kept us informed with his arrival details and was respectful of our home and our space.
E' stato un vero piacere ospitare il gruppo di amici di Nicola , tutti simpatici e persone veramente rispettose e cordiali .
Je recommande Nicola, qui a pris soin de mon appartement. Respectueux et souriant, un plaisir de l'avoir accueilli.
Nicola was our first guest and after this experience we will continue to host. He was very friendly and interesting guy.
You won't have any problem with him.
