The accommodation was a great choice for our stay in Venice. It was small - ( although not the smallest we stayed in italy) . it was tastefully decorated and very close to Piazza San Marco (maybe 100 m). A great place to base yourself for touring Venice. instructions to find location was good and Ms Donatello was able to speak to us on check in using english. the best feature was the view from the small balcony where we could watch the gondolas go past.
apartment was clean and easy to use. the photos provided were a good links to the real thing. communication with owner Robert was clear and all communication made in a timely manner.
This is the first time my husband and I have been to Venice and as we were staying 7 nights which would also include the New Year celebrations we wanted an apartment as close to everything as possible. We couldn't have picked anywhere better, from our initial enquiry to the day we left to return home everything went smoothly. Communication with Robert was excellent, he is very professional, helpful and informative and Payment arrangements were easy and straightforward. This is the owners holiday home, they do not live in Italy but they have an agent Donatello who is there to greet you and be on hand should you need her. We received details from her regarding the vaporetto stop meeting point and time of arrival and she was there as arranged, after just a short walk we arrived at the apartment building (which has a lift). The apartment itself is beautifully and tastefully furnished it has well-equipped kitchen with everything you need, a very comfortable living room with an area just off it for the bedroom, which included a large very comfortable bed. The separate bathroom was a good size and had the advantage of a bath and a shower (and always plenty of hot water). But one of the highlights is the small balcony with an unforgettable view on the small canal where it is located and even a canal crossing. The Bridge of Sighs is on that very same canal, so we had the pleasure of watching the gondola's go by every day. Donatello explained everything to us i.e. central heating system, cooking facilities, washing machine area, the wifi etc and told us to contact her if we needed anything, we didn't. The apartment was lovely and warm and the wifi was brilliant. We would highly recommend staying here and hope to come back for another stay in the future.
This was the perfect place for our stay in Venice. It was central to everything and an easy walk to all sites. The view of the canal was amazing. We enjoyed watching the gondolas go by (and listening) but by evening all was very quiet. The apartment was perfect for the two of us and the kitchen was perfect for a quick meal. We especially appreciated the washer / dryer located on the first floor! The bed and furnishings were comfortable and would absolutely stay there again. The elevator was a welcome amenity after walking all day. We were a bit nervous about finding Donatella but everything worked out as planned and she spent quite a bit of time explaining everything to us. We also appreciated the map and recommendations on where to eat, etc. One word of caution: the description says this is a two-bedroom but it is not. It's really just a one-bedroom with a couch that I suppose can be used as a bed. But, that didn't bother us ... the place was perfect! LOVED THIS PLACE!

My husband are I stayed here as part of our honeymoon, and we were very pleased! The view is amazing, and the location is perfect. The apartment had everything we needed. We would definitely stay again!
